Did you hear about the LA comedian who moved to rural Ohio, bought a farm and then got elected mayor? Meet Drew Hastings, a favorite on The Bob & Tom Show, with appearances on Comedy Central and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and now, the 2nd term Republican mayor of Hillsboro, Ohio.

While many comedians are predictably liberal in their shows, Hastings offers comedy from a common sense conservative perspective. After twelve years, Drew gave up the LA scene for life in flyover country. “I never cared for Hollywood. I have a huge following in the Great Midwest and that’s where I like to work,” says Hastings.

Hastings moved to Hillsboro, Ohio, a small town in southern Ohio. He bought a farm and was elected mayor. “People asked me, ‘What makes you think you can become a mayor? ’Well, I was used to disappointing people on an individual basis so I thought I'd try to expand on that effort," said Hastings.

As Seen On:

Featuring beer from

In addition to the great assortment of cocktails, beers, seltzers, and wine we normally serve, we will also be featuring Lil Beaver Brewery’s newest Beer, The Magic Blue Beer, on tap!

(Yeah... we know it's a picture of a can, but the beer will be on tap. But that doesn't look as cool on a website.)
