SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT SHOW
It was 1999, six years after finishing his collegiate basketball career at Division III Whitewater College, and bouncing around jobs that Kevin found himself in the real world with no real job skills and a strong desire to work an hour a day. What to do? Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Kevin decided to head over to nearby Madison, WI and try the “Open-Mic Night”. “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and lets be honest I had nothing better going on”.
Thirteen years later Kevin is still going on-stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements. “For an hour a night I’m wildly successful”. With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country. In 2000 he was the winner of the Midwest region of the HBO “Comedy Competition” and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist. He performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” in 2003, and finished 2nd in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005. He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010. This past summer he co-starred in the Indie film “Flat Chested” starring Alicia Witt and Luke Perry.
He currently resides in Chicago.
Drew Michael is a Chicago comedian who focuses on life from a dark, cerebral point of view. His rumination on God, religion, Hitler, government, relationships, ex girlfriends, bestiality, pedophilia, life and death has – in addition to making people violently angry – prompted TimeOut Chicago to call him, ”Smart, funny and unabashedly crass.”
Drew is a founding member of the comedy collective, Comedians You Should Know, whose weekly showcase is the best independent stand-up show in the city. The Onion AV Club echoed that sentiment: ”The genuine quality of talent on display is unrivaled in Chicago.” The group also released a self-titled album last year that debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. This year, Drew had the privilege of performing in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
Bryan Morris is a comedian quickly making a name for himself at comedy clubs and festivals across the country.
Bryan delights audiences (presumably you) by expertly balancing sharp observational humor with energetic absurdism. His quick wit, clever material, boyish charm, and manish jawline make him a loveable, relatable crowd favorite.
In 2012 Bryan won Madison’s Funniest Comic Contest with a performance that inspired The Onion’s AV Club to call Bryan, “The Michael Jordan of comedy.” Bryan was also a runner up in Laughfest's "Best of the Midwest 2014," a finalist in the Funniest Person in the Twin Cities Competition, and other impressive comedy things. Bryan has been performing with Atlas Improv Co for nearly 10 years.
He also loves wearing hoodies.
