It never fails, Geoff Tate will remind you of one of your friends. Maybe a cousin. Maybe yourself. His laid back, conversational storytelling has earned him praise and fans through out the comedy community. One guy, in Seattle, even referred to him as a bar room hero. That’s what he is: a guy telling stories like you’re hanging out with him in a bar. Whether it’s something you’ve done, something you wish you’d done or something you’re glad you never did, Geoff never hesitates to tell the truth about it, however unflattering it might be. The son of a pentecostal minister and a drug abuser for most of his early 20’s, Geoff is the rare comedian who talks about religion without condescension and drugs without glorification. He has been seen on Comedy Central's Live At Gotham and The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.� He has performed at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, TN and South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, TX.� His debut album, I Got Potential, was released on April 23, 2013 to rave reviews. Geoff “has a knack for mining his own personal history for big laughs” (The Capital Times, Madison, WI) and his style has been compared to the late Mitch Hedberg (The Columbus Dispatch, Columbus, OH).

“Tate is so fucking funny that after hearing him four shows in a weekend, I still held off taking a shit until he was done his fifth. No kidding”. - Doug Stanhope

“Geoff Tate is a crass slob who’s life seems to have gotten away from him a bit and I’m not sure he’s going to get a handle on it.� In other words, he’s hilarious.” - Marc Maron

“Rock and Roll meets Preacher’s kid. Mockery+Hilarity+Sensibility=Geoff Tate” - Chad Daniels.

Ryan Singer is the rarest of breeds: A comic’s comic who electrifies mainstream audiences with material that is both uncompromising and unpretentious. He recently released his 2nd album COMEDY WONDER TOWN, which was selected by Under The Gun as a Top 10 album of 2012.  LaughSpin says, “With his high-energy delivery and unpretentious leanings, there’s not a lot to dislike about comedian Ryan Singer. And it’s not just us saying it: In the last few years, he’s won over audiences headlining the nation’s finer comedy clubs and was hailed by Marc Maron in Rolling Stone as a comedian “who should be big.”

His debut album, HOW TO GET HIGH WITHOUT DRUGS, is an intense exercise in wordplay, improvisation, and storytelling recorded at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, OH. Those who enter Singer’s world will be rewarded with knowledge of the connections between dimwitted hunters and Tyra Banks, cookies and racial tension, and even gay marriage and dragons, courtesy of a comedian who expertly connects insanity and brilliance.

Ryan was recently mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine by Marc Maron as a comedian “Who Should Be Big” and both his debut album and sophomore release were selected as Top 10 Comedy CD’s of the year. He was mentioned in NY Magazine as a “Comic to Watch,” he was one of 4 finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic Contest, is a frequent guest on the WTF Podcast w/Marc Maron, been heard on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio, has appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show Bob & Tom, and was a regional finalist in Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight.  He was the winner of the Golden Shingle Award at the Rooftop Comedy Festival, an award given to the next rising star in comedy.

WRY, WITTY, CUNNING, AND CRASS Mike Stanley is all of these things, but none, when put on paper, quite manage to serve the justice dealt by Stanley onstage. Yeah, he's pretty hilarious, but more than just coarse anecdotes about life there's an enviable amount of heart and warmth behind Stanley's humor.

Given his penchant toward brutal honesty, spiced up with a healthy dose of insatiable wit, it's not difficult to see why Stanley was named "Best Chicago Stand-up Comedian" in a Peoples Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader and ranked in the top 10 of the best comedians in Chicago by a poll on Comedy.com.

Originally hailing from Detroit, and after spending a decade honing his craft in the Windy City of Chicago he tours constantly, both domestically and internationally. Don't miss out on an incredible opportunity to catch the man in action - this high level of killer stand-up is too remarkable to sit out.
