A gentleman, scholar, diabetic, and comedian that has appeared on Fox, can be seen on Hulu, and can be found yelling at audiences until they enjoy themselves all over this great country. Brian's "Reese's Pieces" clip from Fox's Laughs has been viewed over 7 million times. He is an obnoxiously proud native of Cleveland, OH that has award winning blue eyes, the traps of a god, and a beard that is 98% perfection. He loves you very much, and knows that deep down you love him back.

Mat Alano-Martin has spent the last 13 years on the road telling jokes and sharing stories all across America. He has appeared at comedy clubs, theaters, punk rock dives, redneck roadhouses, casinos, colleges, living rooms and everywhere in between. Alano-Martin’s albums “Profiled as Such,” “Blood Mouth” and “Midnight Nachos” can be heard in regular rotation on Sirius/XM’s comedy channels and he has appeared several times on the nationally syndicated The Bob & Tom Show and once on Laughs on Hulu. His first comedy special “Tango in Philly” will be out later this year.

Her years growing up in one of L.A.’s most notorious neighborhoods combined with her training in avant garde theater make Janae Burris’ comedy style something similar to a one-woman show.
She has opened for nationally touring comics Michael Che, Roy Wood Jr., Beth Stelling, Josh Blue and Gary Gulman to name a few. Janae has been featured at Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington Ind, Telluride Blues Fest and High Plains Comedy Festival in Denver as well as headlining at Ha Ha Harvest in Portland and Aspen Laugh Fest. Janae is a 2019 Just For Laughs New Face. She is a “Pro” on the coveted regulars list at Comedy Works in Denver as well as the 2016 Comedy Works New Faces Champ. She is a founding member of Pussy Bros, her stand up comedy girl gang with Christie Buchele and Rachel Weeks, who made their television debut on NBC’s First Look. (Ok, technically her first TV appearance was on Family Feud where she lost her shot at $10, 000 because what they don’t tell you on FF is that the real feud is between you and your own damn family.)
Native of Cleveland and a one time transplant to Florida, Iam Chad has won the co-feature contest at Funny Stop Comedy Club, he's also a 2 time winner of the Cleveland Eargasm contest, and he appears regularly at Krackpots comedy club in Massillon.

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. Bryan produces a monthly show at Dina's Pizza in Old Brooklyn, and co-produces Gratuity Not Included at Good Company, One More Joke at Judd's City Tavern, and Secret Society Comedy, a weekly pop-up comedy show. 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 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.
Gheramy is the owner and operator of Golden Ox Studio. He produces local favorite podcasts such as Shit Brains, Brett Talk, You Can't Laugh At That, Teach These Devils, and several more for the Golden Ox Network. 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.
