MACOMB, IL - As part of Moms' Day festivities at Western Illinois University, BCA is sponsoring a performance by comedian Pete Lee at 8 p.m. Friday, April 1 at The Forum in downtown Macomb.

Lee's comedy has been described as "candy-coated with a dash of mean." He made his television debut on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend." Since then, he has been a standout at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.

Lee is a regular on the Bob and Tom radio show and was recently a semi-finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing. He also filmed his own Comedy Central Presents special and has placed seventh out of the top 100 comedians in Comedy Central's Standup Showdown.

In addition to winning Country Music Television's Next Big Comic, Lee also enjoys writing, directing and editing web shows. Most recently, Lee has created "Pete Lee's Internet Freak Show," which earned him a spot as a cast member on the FUSE TV's new show "Special Videos Unit: Video on Trial."

Tickets are $15 for the public, $10 for senior citizens, youth and WIU employees and free to WIU students with a valid student ID. To order tickets, visit or call (309) 298-2900.
