Nathan Lund is a Denver comedian who recently moved to Trinidad, Colorado, for some fucking reason? He has told his little jokes at festivals around the country and is a favorite at the best club in the world, Denver's Comedy Works. Nathan hosts a podcast with Sam Tallent called Chubby Behemoth. Please listen to it.
Kelsey Rosen is a stand-up comedian and improviser based in Denver, CO. Her dad called her comedy 'myopic,' but she likes to think that her shows are a romp through her obsessive thoughts on mental health, friendship, politics and of course, romance.
She has performed with The Grawlix Live (Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy, Andrew Overdahl) and has featured for Shane Torres. She's recently shared the stage with Caitlin Peluffo, Sam Tallent, David Gborie, John Novosad and Drew Morgan. Kelsey has performed at the Vail Comedy Festival, Dallas Comedy Festival, Third Coast Improv Festival, and the Asheville Improv Festival.
A Cleveland favorite, Dave's off-the-cuff, off-the-wall style has gotten crowds off their seats at clubs and comedy festivals around Ohio.
Nick Hopping is a stand up comedian based in New York City. He appeared in the NY Comedy Fest’s Comics to Watch 2021, Amazon’s ‘American Comic’, the 2018 Underground Comedy Fest, Trial by Laughter, Devil Cup, Laughing Devil, and Oak City Comedy Festival. Nick also co-founded Stand Up a La Mode, a series of weekly comedy shows in Brooklyn, New York.
“Chill anger” is the best way to describe John Bruton’s comedy style. He’s even become a staple in the Cleveland comedy scene because of his stand up performances and great show production.
Bruton also hosts "Friday Late Show," a podcast where he interviews comedians about bombing, bad shows, and other experiences they’ve had performing comedy.
He also produces two mainstay comedy shows in Cleveland, a showcase style show/album recording called “Monday Night Mixtape” at Grog Shop, and a monthly crowd work show, “Jokes on You,” at Hilarities. John is regularly featured as Ali Siddiq's opener.
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.
