With a last name like that, Cleveland-based comic David Horning learned at a young age to lean into what bothers him using humor, and his comedy is a reflection of this. His optimistic slant on both mundane and heavy topics has gotten him selected to the New York Comedy Festival, Laughing Devil Comedy Festival, the Cleveland Comedy Festival, and on stages around the country. On top of stand-up, David teaches managers and executive teams to improve their workplace culture by developing their senses of humor, and he regularly appears on conference stages as the keynote speaker through his company, Water Cooler Comedy. He also produces several comedy shows around the Cleveland area and co-hosts the podcast “You Can’t Laugh At That,” which explores the psychology behind other comedians' jokes to prove why anything can be funny.
Logan Rishaw is a stand-up from Cleveland, Ohio. He has worked with many acts over the last seven years including Kevin Nealon, Rocky LaPorte, Ali Macofsky, and Brad Wenzel. Logan also co-hosts the podcast "What's So Funny" a deep dive into the works and lives of classic comedians. In 2020, he released a book of short fiction titled "Albert Catmus: Essays and Fiction".
He is part Steven Wright, part Mitch Hedberg and part brain injury. He speaks with a flat affect and his material is smart, dark and twisted.
In 1990, Martin was the victim of a hit and run accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. He has since been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder which, if not a direct result of his injuries, was definitely exacerbated by them. He was banned from Morgan Stanley for insider trading (though it was actually the voices in his head that gave him the winning stock picks).
Martin's comedy career is filled with many highlights. In 2005, he won Rookie of the Year at the Cleveland Comedy Awards. He was a two time finalist in the Carnival Cruise Comedy Challenge, a finalist at the Cleveland Comedy Festival, and won Best Short joke of the Year at the 2019 Cleveland Comedy Awards. Additionally, he has appeared at The Accidental Comedy Festival and Snubfest. He appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in a straight jacket and was on The Opie and Anthony show twice (as Schitzo Bill). He was even asked to appear on The Howard Stern Show.
In a different world, Martin Malloy would be famous. And maybe one day he will be. But for now, he can settle for the local legend status he currently possesses.
