For decades, rodeo has been home to some of the funniest acts in the world of entertainment.

For the last few years, none has been better than Keith Isley, and he’s got the hardware to prove it. Each of the last two ProRodeo seasons, Isley has earned the coveted Triple Crown by sweeping the awards in all the categories for which he is recognized – Clown of the Year, Coors Man in the Can and Comedy Act of the Year.

He’ll bring his knee-slapping comedy act to the three performances of the 78th Big Spring Cowboy Reunion and Rodeo, set this year for 8 p.m. tonight through Saturday. Not only that, but the ever-entertaining Isley will show off the athleticism that has made him one of the most sought-after acts in ProRodeo for decades.

Eight times in his career, Isley has been named the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association Act of the Year, and he’s earned the Clown of the Year honor five times.
