December 2, 2022 – Comedian C. Willi Myles is the headlining speaker at the 2023 Kansas Soybean Expo scheduled for January 11, 2023. Myles’ bio describes him as “America’s Everyday Comedian” who uses quick wit and a great sense of humor to deliver high energy, side-splitting shows for all ages. “’Keep ‘em laughing’ has been C. Willi’s goal on the stage over the last 18 years and he isn’t about to stop” the bio continues. Myles has shared the stage with Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, The Beach Boys, Toby Keith and other household names.

The afternoon features an informative 90-minute economic panel with Mac Marshall, United Soybean Board Vice President of Market Intelligence; Scott Gerlt, American Soybean Association Chief Economist; and Matt Herman, Iowa Soybean Association Senior Director of Renewable Product Marketing. The panel will include an opportunity to ask the experts questions.
