Brian Kenny &
Special Co-Headliner Event
What happens when you pair with Cleveland Scene Magazine's "Best Female Comedienne"?
You get this week's "Co-Headliner" Event at the Funny Stop.
Brian Kenny is a gentleman, scholar, Browns fan, and comedian that can be found yelling at audiences until they enjoy themselves all over Northeast Ohio.
Brian is a Cleveland native that has beautiful blue eyes, the traps of a God, and his beard game is on point.
Kenny performed on the 2013 Alan Cox Show Comedy Tour, 2014 Rock on the Range, and is a regular at that club in downtown Cleveland. He has opened for likes of Dave Attell, Norm McDonald, Dom Irrera, Joey "Coco" Diaz, and many more.
He loves you very much, and knows that deep down you love him back.
Hailing from Cleveland, Mary Santora is a fresh breath of femininity in the otherwise male dominated world of stand up.
Her quick witted, observational style has landed her the opportunity to not only travel across the country in various clubs, but to open for comedic greats such as Jen Kirkman, Dave Attell, Kyle Kinane and Tom Papa. She took second place at the 2015 Cleveland Comedy Festival, was named The Best Local Female Comedian by the Cleveland Scene Magazine both 2016 and 2017, was chosen to compete in the 2018 Best of the Midwest competition at LaughFest in Grand Rapids, MI and is continuing to quickly make a name for herself as one of the best up and coming comics in the Midwest.
While you may not know the face, you may know her voice from her weekday afternoon appearances on the Alan Cox Show on 100.7, WMMS.
After you've had time to check the Social Media habits our co-headliners, give the Funny Stop box office a call at 330-923-4700 to make a reservation to see Brian Kenny and Mary Santora live on stage this week.
Jake Soloman Crowned
As "Ohio's Best
On Tuesday night, September 16 a huge crowd had the opportunity to see the ten amateur comedians who survived
the preliminary qualifiers, quarter-finals, and semi-finals to reach "THE FINALS" of the latest edition of
the "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian" Contest at the Funny Stop.
Scores of performers had taken the stage over the Spring and Summer of 2014 to open the Funny Stop's Tuesday night shows in an attempt just to qualify for the elimination rounds of the contest.
During "The Finals", each contestant performed 5 minutes of clean material and the panel of judges used their professional experience to score the performances as to rate the audience support and response for each amateur.
When the numbers were tallied, Jake Soloman had achieved the goal of all of the competitors, being crowned as "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".
Congratulations go out to Jake for earning the championship title.
Special recognition also goes out to the other 9 performers who advanced to the championship round.
In alphabetical order, they are:
Dan Fallone, Kali Fencil, Chris Harvey, Tony Madurai, Jerry Miller, Nancy Remlee, Spike Salazar, Drew Seachrist and Rob Telecky.
