Liz Blanc is a Los Angeles-based comedian. She has worked with many nationally-touring headliners including Sasheer Zamata, Taylor Tomlinson, Cameron Esposito and Joe List. Liz has also been featured in the Chicago Women’s Funny Fest, Cleveland Comedy Festival and Flyover Comedy Festival. Clips from her December 2022 Don’t Tell Comedy set have amassed millions of views on TikTok, YouTube and Instagram. She loves to take awkward situations and make them just a tiny bit more awkward. She illustrates her experiences involving teaching high school, dating and other horrific moments through a comedic lens. Her relatable, cringe-worthy humor will definitely make you laugh at her, and maybe even with her..
Mike Paramore is the guy you fight to sit next to in a movie theatre, on a long car ride, or during a
boring lecture. His natural ability to infuse everyday situations with energetic, uplifting humor, combined with a natural ability to put you at ease is key to his personal brand of comedy. His smooth delivery and powerful punchlines make him a force in stand-up comedy, which is very apparent in his debut album "The Things We Tell Ourselves", available now on iTunes and Amazon.
In addition to performing at the 2010 Stellar Awards and being a part of the 2012 Just for Laughs Festival, Mike was a finalist in the 2014 World Series of Comedy, Winner of the 2015 Cleveland Comedy Festival, Winner of the 2016 Laughing Devil Festival in New York City, Winner of the 2017 Laugh Fest's best in the Midwest competition. He was featured on AXTV's Live at Gotham in NYC, as well as a featured comedian on FOX's hit show "Laughs," and has two Dry Bar Comedy specials, available now.
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.
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 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.
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.
