The Disgruntled Clown
Full Week of Shows
He's 6'5" and doesn't do children's parties. Brace yourself for one of the wildest shows you will ever see.
The Disgruntled Clown's material covers a wide range of topics -- from employment opportunities, marital issues, disciplining children, achieving financial independence, sports and much, much more. No two shows are ever alike.
If you are looking for politically correct comedy, keep walking!
The Clown uses props throughout his show for "virtual" enhancement, but do not misunderstand. At 6'5" and 285 lbs. The Clown refuses to let anybody else take control of HIS show!
The Disgruntled Clown has made regular appearances on FOX TV commercials. He has been featured in other network commercials, appearing both in and out of character.
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.
Keep an eye on the Funny Stop schedule for the club's next competition to see who is "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".
