Since 2014, Ray has been performing his sharp and witty jokes at bars, basements, back yards, clubs, festivals and pretty much anywhere with a microphone. Ray’s style is light and fun while still talking about the big stuff you're not supposed to talk about at dinner but do anyways. His self-produced debut comedy album “B-Sides All That” went to #1 on Amazon Music for new comedy in 2020.

Jeff Shaw is not a manly man. Jeff Shaw is not a girly man. Jeff Shaw is a manly girly man.
Jeff is also an accomplished stand-up comedian whose first Dry Bar Comedy special Manly Girly Man has garnered over 10 million views on Facebook and is currently streaming on Peacock and Comedy Dynamics. Jeff's second Dry Bar Comedy special was released in September of 2022 to rave reviews.
Jeff is a former linguist for the Army, a former staff writer for American Greetings, a former comedy club manager for Carnival Cruise Line, a former humor columnist for Cleveland's SCENE Magazine and Buffalo's Artvoice, and the author of The Fun Dude's Guide to Cruising: A Humorous Handbook for Taking Your First Cruise and Living to Complain About It, available on Amazon as both a Kindle e-book and paperback.
Jeff’s reputation for destroying a room without having to put a dollar in the swear jar has made him an in-demand corporate and cruise-ship comedian. In March of 2020, Jeff beat out thousands of contenders to win a spot for Season 15 of America's Got Talent. Although Jeff was crushed to learn that only snippets of his standing-ovation appearance in Pasadena would go to air due to the pandemic’s impact on AGT’s production schedule, he was thrilled to see his On Tour Records release Jeff with Two F's reach #1 on iTunes and Amazon less than a year later.
WHO IS SECRET SOCIETY COMEDY?
Bryan Sternik is an up-and-coming Cleveland comedian whose conversational style and upbeat demeanor can make even his darkest jokes feel lighthearted.

He is the co-host of "The Guiltless Podcast" and "Dude, Nobody Cares."
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.

He can be seen on comedy stages across the city and has recently performed in the Mutiny Radio Comedy Fest, Cleveland Comedy Festival, Sixth City Comedy Fest, and the Midwestern Queer Comedy Festival. Renowned failure and a well educated idiot whose only contribution to this world will be when he is no longer in it, Gheramy is not sorry that you wasted your time reading this bio.
