Jason Hewlett intends to make the BYU-Idaho campus laugh this weekend through his multiple impressions and stories.
“One of my greatest joys in life is interacting with youth and adults interested in bettering themselves and reaching their potential,” Hewlett said.
Hewlett will perform Friday at 9:30 p.m.
Hewlett has ties to the university because his parents met at Ricks College. He has performed at in the Center Stage series at BYU-I many times.
“Rexburg is like my fourth home, at least the Springhill Suites are,” Hewlett said.
He said that as a youth, he attended a few Ricks activities.
“I myself tried to attend a dance there in my dating years,” he said. “Obviously, that ended with me realizing my Michael Jackson impression was inappropriate for the BYU-I audience, and I could be found at the end of the night in the corner, on the ground, in the fetal position, sucking my thumb.”
Hewlett has a one-man show of music and comedy, which he said can only be understood by visiting his website, jasonhewlett.com.
“Within the performance, I couple many personal stories and experiences that are hilarious, especially to the demographic of LDS, college-age students, meaning I’m joking about my mission to Brazil, days from my youth, realizing I was the weird one, and eventually coming to terms with the fact that I have a place in this world as both entertainer and motivator to help others consider their talents are pretty awesome,” Hewlett said.
Hewlett said his favorite part of P2B is hearing the audience laugh and sing along as he is performing.
“What sets P2B apart is that I can add in some of the inspirational and spiritual element to the funny material, and it will be a very powerful moment for anyone willing to take it all in,” Hewlett said.
