SPECIAL THANKS TO
The slightly dark, incredibly quick, observational style of Mary Santora's comedy is one that is uniquely her own. Drawing from real life experiences, Mary takes the audience on a storytelling driven ride, while seamlessly weaving in and out of crowd interactions, leaving a lasting impression on anyone who sees her. Santora's debut album, "Hillbilly Boujee" hit #1 on both iTunes and Amazon, #5 on Billboard, and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM.
Nick Dlouhy is a standup comedian based in Cleveland, OH. His roots in standup comedy are in Chicago, where he performed for 9 years. He is also a graduate of IO Improvisation program, and hosted at The Second City's Training Center. Nick combines self-deprecation with weirdness into a fun, upbeat act. His standup includes jokes about being a new dad, regrets about living his former "bro" life, and how he looks like Lebron James. Nick has run shows in support of our veterans (so he's a great person!) and in support of himself (a great person with material needs!). Nick has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and clubs all over the country.
GW-NELL has performed at Funny Stop, Krackpots, Funny Farm and Cleveland IMPROV. Her high-energy, bawdiness and obscene confidence makes her a crowd favorite.
Paul-Henry knows not why he tells jokes, only that he must tell them.
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."
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. He co-produces Secret Society Comedy, a weekly Cleveland pop-up comedy show, 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.
He is a New York-based comedian and writer who has performed in comedy clubs, bars, and breweries all over the country. Originally from rural Maryland, he is lovable and self-deprecating as he tells true stories of working out with his mom, giving a woman his watch at a bar then asking her to mail it back, and living at a doggy daycare center for 5 years. His short film was recently featured at the Big Apple Film Festival.
She is a Brooklyn-based Jewpanese comic and immodest copywriting genius. The Los Angeles suburbs raised her and living in San Francisco and New York really aged her. Her comedic style can be described as dry warmth, which would really make more sense if she was from Arizona.
She hosts Bitches' Brew Comedy at Halyards Bar in Gowanus and has also appeared in original videos for Refinery29 and been praised in Vulture. Please ask her about her comedy pilots.
