Valentines's Day

Tim Folger
Don't wait to have fun, make fun where ever you go and whatever you do.

Tim Folger's show takes you on a wild ride that draws on every aspect of "real life." From relationships... family to marrage, kids, divorce, and jobs... just find the fun in life and ride the wave out.

For nearly 20 years Tim Folger has performed in comedy clubs, colleges and corporate events all over the world including multiple European comedy tours.

You may have seen Tim in his appearance in "The Shawshank Redemption" or have been touched by his TV commercial and radio work.

Tim Folger offers a fresh brewed sense of humor. It's a laugh, snort, and shoot beer through your nose kind of a good time.

Mike Cheselka
Michael Cheselka is not only a Brecksville native and Cleveland resident, but he spent a quarter of a century working as a nationally renowned comedian... before finding steady work as an attorney.

For 3 glorious years, Cheselka toured as one of ‘The Outlaws of Comedy’ with the late Sam Kinison and over the course of his comedy career has traveled to all 50 states and 17 foreign countries as a headlining comedian.

After nearly a decade away from the club, please welcome back to the Funny Stop stage... Mr. Mike Cheselka!

Jake Soloman Crowned
As "Ohio's Best
Amateur Comedian"

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".

September 2014 Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian Contest Finals

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.

Keep an eye on the Funny Stop schedule for the club's next competition to see who is "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".

Look At What
Is New At The
Funny Stop
Comedy Club

The Stage View "Wall of Fame" Bar, Meeting Room Rentals, Gift Certificates, and More!

As the FIVE-TIME WINNER of the MyFoxCleveland "Hot List" competition as the best venue for Live Comedy in Northeastern Ohio, it would be easy for the Funny Stop Comedy Club to rest on its laurels, but that is not the case.

Let's take a look at just some of the new things going on at the Funny Stop Comedy Club.

Funny Stop's New Stage View Bar

Stage View Bar

Since the move to our new location several years ago, one element that our patrons missed was a sit down bar within the club.

Well now the Funny Stop has brought back that old facility element and has taken it one better by providing a sit down bar with a view of the stage.

Whether it be before, during, or after the live comedy show, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our Stage View bar area.

Drink specials are offered after each evening's comedy show and a special Ladies Night promotion is offered every Thursday night as well.

Meeting Room Rental

It is getting more and more difficult for groups and organizations to find facilities to host their gatherings, meetings, reunions, etc.

Stepping in to fill that void, the Funny Stop now offers its showroom for such activities on mornings and afternoons, seven days a week as well as on most Sunday and Monday evenings.

Groups of up to nearly 200 will enjoy our open floor plan and elevated stage area.

Limited use of audio/visual equipment as well as food and beverage service are also available.

For more details, available dates, pricing, and to make your reservation, contact Nidal at 330-923-4700.

Gift Certificates

Do you know someone who needs an evening out on the town?

Do you have a relative or friend who is hard to by for?

No matter the circumstance, look no further than Gift Certificates from the Funny Stop Comedy Club to fill that need.

Funny Stop gift certificates spend just like cash so use them for admission the show, to enjoy a delicious meal or snack, or even to enjoy the beverage of choice.

To purchase a Funny Stop gift certificate, contact our box office at 330-923-4700.

And More!

Don't forget that the Funny Stop now offers a "VIP Card". Check out the full details of this program in the article found elsewhere on this page.
