Mandee McKelvey was recently named one of the 50 best undiscovered comics in the country by Thrillist, and it's not hard to see why.  As one of the midwest's most acclaimed stand-up comedians, her candor, touch of vulgarity, and infectious sense of humor reveal an earnestness and vulnerability that invites us to find the humor in tragedy.


Mandee was named a breakout performer at Limestone Comedy Festival and the Memphis Comedy Festival, and has recently featured for Whitney Cummings, Michelle Wolf, Laurie Kilmartin, Tig Notaro, Todd Barry, and Anthony Jeselnik.


Her one-woman show, “My Left Boob”, received the Underdog Award for it’s sold-out debut at the 2019 IndyFringe and Kansas City’s Best of Fringe award in 2022. In 2023, she received a grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women to film her first comedy special.


Mandee produces the celebrated roast show Character Assassination and the storytelling show We Still Like You.

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 regularly appears on conference stages as keynote speaker, teaching the value of humor in business to managers and executive teams across industries. He also produces Secret Society Comedy, a pop-up comedy club bringing the best up-and-coming comedians from around the country to Northeast Ohio.
