Comedy on the Cumberland is produced by local talk show host/comedian Hank Bonecutter, who approached F&M Bank to be the presenting sponsor of a new and unique event in Clarksville.  Sammy Stuard, President/CEO of F&M Bank knew he had a great idea in front of him, and was not going to miss the opportunity to make it happen.

“This was something that wasn’t just making a donation.  This was a multimedia effort to promote the charity and it’s needs, while producing an event that local residents wanted to see” said Stuard.  “Our bank would be involved in the promotion, in selling tickets, and getting personally involved with a different charity at each show.”

In the magazine’s February edition, the article highlighted how successful the concept is, and the positive impact Comedy on the Cumberland has in the community.  Raising over thirty thousand dollars in it’s first two years, the clean stand up comedy show plans to expand to a bigger venue, with bigger name talent in 2012.

“As a comedian, I know that all we want is somebody to laugh at our routines, and Clarksville is a great crowd for comedy” according to Bonecutter.  “Clarksville has to go to Nashville to enjoy a comedy show, now, Comedy on the Cumberland brings the Nashville comics here.”
