Dave Waite’s oddball stories and rants have made him a favorite at clubs around the Midwest. A square peg who found happiness when he stopped trying to fit in, Dave’s hilarious tales of personal failure have won the love of audiences young and old alike.

Although Dave is known for his constant grin, the first few years his post-college life didn’t give him much to smile about. After graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in the lucrative field of geography, Dave drifted through a series of jobs ranging from call center representative to substitute teacher, experiences that later became a part of his act.

On his days as a substitute teacher, Dave says, “My kids would come up to me and say, ‘Mr. Waite, you’re going to die from smoking!’ I was like, ‘No, Timmy, more like drinking!’”

After being fired from nearly every job and having zero luck at finding love, Dave’s self-esteem hit rock bottom in early 2004. His salvation came in the form of a newspaper ad for a stand-up comedy class at the Funny Bone in Newport, KY. Dave took the class and fell in love with stand-up, quickly gaining a reputation amongst both comedians and audiences as one of the Midwest’s wittiest and most unpredictable young comics.

Comedian Gabe Kea's unbridled enthusiasm for entertaining audiences is what truly sets him apart. With a personality as big as his 6'5" frame, Gabe melds well-crafted jokes with his comedic physicality to create an unforgettable show.

Gabe started performing in St. Louis after spending most of his youth living in both the United States and Canada. He eventually relocated to southwestern Ohio, where he won the "Funniest Person in Cincinnati" contest. You may have seen Gabe performing around town at the Taste of Cincinnati, the Taft Theater, a Northside Pub or the annual Cincinnati Brew Haha at Sawyer Point.

Gabe is a former recipient of Rooftop Comedy's Silver Nail, awarded to those that distinguished themselves in the underground stand-up scene. Gabe has made several appearances on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show. He performed with "Community" star Joel McHale at Gilda's Laugh Fest in Grand Rapids Michigan, has also been featured in the Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington Indiana, and the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival in Asheville North Carolina.

His interests include hockey, beer, and reinforcing Canadian stereotypes.

Come out to Go Bananas Comedy Club on New Years Eve and laugh in the new year with club favorite Mike Lebovitz! New Years Eve is always a great time at Go Bananas and this year is no exception.
10:00 Show Includes: The Show Cheese and Veggie Plate Party Favors & Champagne Toast at Midnight The show will last approximately 1 1/2 hours. After the show we will begin handing out party favors, snack plates, and bottles of champagne. The comics will retake the stage and begin the countdown with prizes and jokes. Then we all laugh in the New Year.



Mike Lebovitz's comedy career began at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He's been delighting and confounding audiences big and small ever since with his offbeat yet accessible brand of humor. As an accomplished actor, director and writer, Lebovitz draws from a broad range of disciplines in constructing his act, using outlandish viewpoints and subversive turns-of-phrase to highlight the inherent absurdity of being. He doesn't point out life's quirks; he revels in them. After earning a BA in Theater Performance from Oberlin College, Lebovitz trained at both the Annoyance and iO Theaters, where he was a member of the house teams Ned Beatty and Roadster from 2002-2007. He is also a member of Comedians You Should Know, Chicago's premiere stand-up comedy collective, whose debut CD recently topped out as the #1 selling comedy album on iTunes.
