Don Frost, a graduate of Mineral County High School and former resident of Mina, is scheduled to headline at Catch a Rising Star Comedy Club in the Silver Legacy Casino in Reno, Nevada, March 4-9.
Frost has performed comedy around the country since 2003. He performs in comedy clubs, theaters, universities, state prisons, private parties, benefits and even at Alpaca Farms.
Frost uses growing up in a small town as an inspiration for his jokes.
“Living in a small place like Mina, it’s unlike any place in the world,” he said. “You look at the world differently.”
Frost credits a 5th-grade teacher who challenged him to write out an act and perform it front of the class for his start on the road to comedy. Other people who inspired him include “My parents, my Mom who is really hilarious, and a lot of the old miners around Mina.”
He also names Louie Anderson and a pre “You might be a redneck” Jeff Foxworthy as inspirations. Frost’s parents still live in Mina and he is planning to visit during the local Armed Forces Day celebration.
His comedy is sarcastic, loud flavor-full of insight about his rural upbringing, daily observations of the people and places he encounters, and his genuine and unique take on the human experience through his point of view.
Frost’s stage presence is loud and original.
Show time information and advanced ticket sales are available at www.catcharisingstar.com. Tickets are also available at the box office of the casino.
