Wry, witty, cunning, and crass; Hot-shot comedian 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 and sex, 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, he’s a Windy City transplant who 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.
Born and raised in Chicago, JOE KILGALLON has been performing stand-up comedy since 2006. With a background in improv and sketch writing, Joe fuses well-polished material with riffing and crowd work to construct a perfectly well-rounded act.
His in-your-face style and charismatic charm help Joe paint stories drawn heavily from personal experience and his Chicago-Irish roots, making him an instant favorite and the type of comedian everyone wants to share a drink with after the show.
MATT DRUFKE starting doing comedy with an open mic in the fall of 2007 and has been hooked ever since. Since then, he’s built a reputation as a funny, high-energy comedian who delivers laughs to any audience, whether at small bars or large theaters. In July of 2010, Matt got to open for Nick DiPaolo for four fantastic shows at The Clearwater Theater in West Dundee.
