Funny Stop Comedian

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
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".

Kate recently shot two non-scripted pilots for Bravo which unfortunately were not picked up: SURVIVAL GUIDE A TO Z and UNT BUSY PHILLIPS. She recently tested for WALK OF SHAME SHUTTLE at VH1 and BRODY JENNER at E! and is currently in the running to host an untitled pilot that Craig Robinson and Jeff Ross are attached to that 3 Arts is producing.

The last three All Def Digitals that she did for YouTube have gotten over 4 million views.

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.
