Brent Terhune - www.brentcomedy.com
Characters, voices, one liners, and time-tested monologues-comedian Brent Terhune is the embodiment of all these things and more. Not many comics can pull off Brent’s laid-back style of comedy and still remain just as absurd and funny, but equally relevant and relatable at the same time. He got his start in comedy in Indianapolis, Indiana and is currently studying Communication at the University of Indianapolis. He is also the co-host of the immensely popular podcast that is enjoyed by dozens of listeners, The Interweb Podshow. Whether talking about the everyday struggles of being a redhead, life as a college student and radio DJ, or his off-the-wall Uncle Frank and family, Brent is sure to keep you laughing well after he’s left the stage.
Matt Holt - www.mattholtcomedy.com
Matt Holt has been making people laugh most of his life. He’s been doing it professionally for nearly 20 years. He displays a quick-wit and razor-sharp delivery along with a very laid back and conversational style on stage.
When a comic lives in the moment, no two shows are alike. With his relaxed style, Matt transitions seamlessly from scripted material to of-the-cuff conversation with the audience, leaving them laughing, applauding and gasping for air.
Being the youngest of 8 kids, twice divorced and having no health care is what drives Matt to the stage night after night. Matt never misses a chance to laugh at himself, which allows him to break down the barrier between the audience and the performer. It’s like sitting down with an old friend and having the time of your life.
In addition to his stand up performances, Matt has also kept busy creating one-man shows. In 2014 he wrote and produced his show “Thank You Johnny Carson”, which received great reviews. In 2015 he debuted his latest show, “Acting My Age!”
Matt has performed with many of the greats in the comedy world: Louis CK, Dave Attel, John Pinette, Ron White, and Jimmy Pardo among many, many more.
Matt’s latest CD “Acting My Age” can be heard on Sirius/XM radio and debuted on the top ten I-tunes comedy chart.

In just a few short years Kyle Grooms has become one of the funniest young comics on the New York stand-up circuit. His love for comedy caused him to abandon his career as Art Director for a Hispanic television network and perform comedy full time. Today he is a headlining comedian with numerous television shows to his credit. This New Jersey born comedian is determined to be one of the strongest comedic voices of our generations.
Kyle delivers an honest and intelligent approach towards comedy. Kyle gives an intimate look into his life experiences growing up in the American Melting Pot. Kyle says, "I want to spill my guts on stage." His exploration of the human experience crosses many ethnic and social boundaries. For this reason that Kyle has been invited to perform on shows such as diverse as "Showtime at the Apollo," "Comedy Picante," "Premium Blend" and "Tough Crowd with Collin Quinn." Kyle has also been well received throughout England, Holland and at the Montreal Comedy Festival.
His interest in comedy started around the age of nine. Often left home alone, Kyle kept himself entertained by listening to eight track tapes of singer Otis Redding and comedian Richard Pryor. Never a great singer, Kyle would perform Pryor's jokes for his friends and family. Eventually he would develop his own comedic wit. But comedy wasn't his first career choice after high school. As a former graffiti artist, Kyle chose to attend the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale where he received a degree in commercial art.
Kyle's TV and Radio credits include "Def Comedy Jam," "Comic View," "Que Locos," "Chappelle's Show," and as "Information Guy" on "Straight Plan for the Gay Man."

"[Troy Baxley] is a favorite among stand-ups”
– The Onion
Twice a national finalist at the prestigious HBO Comedy Festival, Troy Baxley is already well-known in comedy circle.
The best restaurants are those where chefs dine on their nights off. Troy Baxley is the comic that other comics, from open-mic’ers to top A-List comedians watch every chance they get. Even Letterman talent scout Eddie Brill calls himself a “huge Troy Baxley fan.” Word.
Others are catching on too. The Onion points out that “…only recently has [Baxley’s] weird brand of impish comedy started to penetrate the mainstream…” and from the way people turn out to see him every time he plays a gig, well, tru dat, yo!
Baxley’s act mirrors the thoughts and attention spans of America’s largest demographic: Lifetime “C” Students. A lifetime “C” student himself, Baxley knows a thing or two about overachievement by way of shortcuts. Remember that annoying kid in grade school who would always remind the teacher to assign homework? Well Baxley was the kid who heckled that kid; and he hasn’t stopped since. Word up, party people.
Sometimes the best acts are the hardest to describe. How do you describe a comic who goes on a five minute love-rant about his girlfriend’s beautiful jacked up buck teeth, then waxes poetic about a side-street meat-jones trying to get some cross-town she-hobo? Hilarious.
Don’t worry, he doesn’t know what it means either, but that’s half the point, and why the Las Vegas Sun said “Don’t let the rational and mild mannered shell fool you, Baxley can get as twisted as they come.”
You simply have to see it firsthand to get the slightest idea of what is going on inside his insanely-funny mind. And people see him again and again. Everywhere he performs, fans return, requesting their favorite bits – which are constantly changing and evolving from the last time they saw Troy Baxley “kickin’ it street.”

Tim Harmston was only a year into his career when he won Acme Comedy Company’s 2003 Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest. After winning, a well known headliner said to him “You’re kind of like an idiot, but with smart material”. That winning combination has led Tim to appearances on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, the Bob and Tom radio show, and Wisconsin Public Radio. Tim has performed at the Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival, the Great American Comedy Festival in Norfolk, NE, and the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta.

Comedian Mike “Meat” Cronin is a self-deprecating guy’s guy who happens to also be a fantastic writer with a truly original voice. Mike spent several years honing his craft at clubs and colleges near his hometown of Cincinnati before relocating to Chicago, where he hosts the popular showcase, “Best Night Ever.” Mike performed at the inaugural Limestone Comedy Festival and has opened for Bo Burnham, Tommy Johnagin, and Tom Segura.
When their schedules permit, Mike and a rotating group of his closest friends in stand-up tour nontraditional venues as the Best Buds of Comedy. Along with Best Buds tourmate and frequent collaborator Alex Stone, Mike co-wrote and co-directed the music video for “The Hipster Song,” which has been viewed over 900,000 times on YouTube.
After attending one of Mike’s live shows, the New Times Broward-Palm Beach raved that his “testosterone-friendly jokes about beards, lazy masturbation, and sh**ting his pants were presented so deftly, he even had the ladies laughing.” Mike is pretty sure that was meant a compliment.
He is currently on the road to support his debut album “Hot For Too Long” (Rooftop Comedy Records), which premiered in the top five of iTunes’ comedy album charts.

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.
