Funny Stop Comedian

Greg Morton

Legendary Parodies
and Voices!

Greg Morton had only two choices in schoolyard conflicts. Learn the ways of the force, or use his wit to diffuse situations.

That wit would soon lead to winning first prize in the "So You Think You're Funny Contest" and the beginning of his stand-up comedy career.

He was no longer the shy introverted kid, drawing cartoons in the corner. He had finally found his voice. A voice he would later use to direct and voice over twenty Saturday Morning cartoons. This former mobile disc jockey, who used to play songs at weddings, now sings song parodies on nationally syndicated radio programs like the Bob and Tom Show.

Take Greg's "Obama Man", sung to Sammy Davis, Jr.'s tune "Candy Man", which has racked up over 4 million hits on YouTube.

Since the debut of his two minute Star Wars mash-up on Just for Laughs and Comedy Central, Greg Morton has gone on to entertain audiences worldwide, opening for Celine Dion and Luther Vandross at Radio City Music Hall.

A noble choice of career young Padawan. Trading light sabers for laughs. This way, no one looses an arm.

Check out Greg Morton's website at GregMorton.com and follow him on Twitter at @GregMortonComic, then call the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservation to see Greg Morton appear on our stage, live and in person Thursday through Saturday.

When you call, be sure to ask about our special Valentines Weekend Dinner and Show packages on Saturday night!

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".

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:

Funny Stop Comedian

Bonnie McFarlane

54,200 Twitter Followers
Can't Be Wrong!

Do you like comedian Rich Vos?

Well then, it is likely that you'll like this headliner who is making just her 2nd ever appearance at the Funny Stop. Please welcome back to our stage Bonnie McFarlane (aka Mrs. Rich Vos).

Long before becoming Mrs. Vos, Bonnie did her first open mic in Vancouver, Canada. The manager of the club told her she should enter a contest, The Search for Canada's Funniest New Comic. She did, and she won.

She moved to New York, where she landed a manager, an agent and taped her first half-hour special, which aired on Comedy Central.

Bonnie McFarlane got a deal with CBS to star in her own sitcom. That sitcom never happened, but after her deal was over, she landed a starring role in another sitcom on UPN called "Social Studies." After six episodes, the show was cancelled, but another show was just around the corner.

Christopher Guest wrote Bonnie a regular role in his pilot for HBO called "D.O.A." The show was D.O.A. HBO never picked it up.

So much for the easy path to fame and fortune.

Undeterred, Bonnie McFarlane continued doing stand up in Los Angeles and appeared on "The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn"," "Friday Night", and "Premium Blend." She hosted "Later" on NBC and was a regular on "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn."

She also landed roles in several other pilots and television shows including "Gross Pointe," "Scare Tactics" and "The Drew Carey Show."

Not content with just being a performer, Bonnie began writing and doing punch-up for various television shows, including "The Man Show," "Spy TV" and "Trigger Happy."

McFarlane went on to participate in the second season of NBC's "Last Comic Standing" and became one of the show's stand-out characters, which led to an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

She became a regular on "The Late Show with David Letterman" and started headlining shows across the country.

Bonnie also appeared in a one-hour special for HBO.

Bonnie McFarlane continues to pursue stand-up, writing and acting and has created several multimedia stage shows like "The Fake, Fake Show starring" Zach Galifianakis and a short film starring Patton Oswalt called "Sushi Whore."

You know that someone with 54.2K followers on Twitter has to be doing something right. You can be Bonnie McFarlane's 54,201st follower by clicking HERE.

You should come out to see Bonnie McFarlane, live and in person on the Funny Stop stage. She will appear in an 8PM show on Thursday followed by a pair of shows (8 and 10:30 PM) on both Friday and Saturday.

Don't wait! Make your reservations now by calling the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700.

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.
