One night. Two comedians. Three laughs (or more ... Definitely more).
United by their mutual admiration of professional wrestling despite being well into their 30s, Mike Cody
and Tabari McCoy
also share a love of stand-up comedy. This has resulted in nearly 20 years (between the two of them) of toiling away at open mics in coffee houses, bars, libraries and the occasional stand-up comedy club fine-tuning their stand-up skills. And now, they will be sharing the stage for one night only on Wednesday, Oct. 16 to record their debut albums for Rooftop Comedy
Slightly weird, definitely smart and more than a little nerdy, Mike Cody constantly finds himself in uncomfortable situations but manages to stay positive throughout it all. Mike has been featured on Comedy Central's Jokes.com and earned recognition as a national finalist in Sierra Mist
’s 2005 “Next Great Comic” contest. Additionally, he’s performed at the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival
and is a former winner of the Funniest Person in Cincinnati contest at Go Bananas Comedy Club … Which he wears as a badge of honor since he has never won the WWE Heavyweight Championship.
Mike is perhaps best known locally as the creator of Underbelly, an award-winning sketch and improv show that began its run at the Southgate House in Newport, KY. The show is playing monthly to great acclaim in both New York City and Los Angeles.
A fan of stand-up comedy dating back to the early 1980s, Tabari’s sense of humor reflects a wide assortment of influences, speaking on everything from every day annoyances to pop culture, sports and his own personal experiences. This has resulted in Tabari performing at several prestigious comedy festivals, including the San Francisco Sketch Fest
, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival
and the inaugural Limestone Comedy Festival
in Bloomington, IN.
An award-winner at the 2008 Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival
in Colorado, Tabari has also been seen performing locally on Cincinnality
on WXIX “Fox 19” and the MavTV
network. He’s also been seen on HGTV’s popular reality series Property Virgins
buying his first home, so he would really appreciate you supporting his career so he can pay for it.
