You know, an enormous number of comics--including the vast majority of those who pass through the friendly little place we like to call Cap City--maintain career objectives that include aspirations toward acting in a sitcom, or writing for one. But, hell, Robert Hawkins has already done both--in the same series, no less: the late, lamented “Titus.”

Indeed, he was hired as a story editor, which means he wrote a script or two per season, and contributed mightily to the scripts written by his colleagues, adding jokes, improving dialogue, etc. Before long, his work in the writers room so impressed the Fox show’s producers--who also knew of his acting aspirations and abilities (a few years prior, he had landed a development deal with Fox)--that they cast him in a recurring guest role as Titus’ brother-in-law, Michael.

So when it comes to working in network television, while we wouldn’t exactly say “been there, done that”--we’re guessing that under the right circumstances, he might be persuaded to return to such work--he has logged that experience, and his passion for stand-up has never wavered.

Not coincidentally, perhaps, he’s always had a tremendous flair and a considerable gift for it. One measure of this would be his results over the years in comedy competitions, or similar enterprises.

For example, in 1993, he won the California State University Comedy Competition, while the next year he was a finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, a contest as venerable and prestigious as Funniest Person In Austin. Then, in 1996, he wowed audiences and industry figures in Montreal at the Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival, which led to Robert being awarded the aforementioned Fox development deal.

In 2001, he was voted one of the 25 top comics in the country in a poll of comedy club owners nominating candidates for the American Comedy Awards. And, perhaps needless to say (given all these victories, achievements and accolades), he’s starred in his own Comedy Central half-hour special, appeared on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” and a slew of other TV shows.

Still, when all is said and done about his work--cable TV, network TV, writing, acting, etc.--Robert Hawkins’ first love is performing comedy in a club in front of a live audience, and obviously he’s pretty damn good at it. Do you want to miss that? Didn’t think so.

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.

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.
