Funny Stop Comedian

DAN BROWN
plus
Crowd Control

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Yes, you saw Dan Brown when he opened for Kevin Farley earlier this year at the Funny Stop. Now you'll get to see him make his headlining debut, for one night only, on Thursday, September 16th at the Funny Stop.

Being Straight-Edge had the reputation of being aggressive in the 1980's... but when performed by Dan Brown, it's clean comedy that still has an edge and is aggressively funny.

Dan combines his real life observations and experiences into a performance that is honest and insightful, to which audiences can relate and laugh.

Dan talks about life from a wannabe superhero's point of view on having to grow up, family and relationships while maintaining honest and true.

This comic is a favorite at comedy clubs and colleges and has an upcoming Dry Bar Comedy Special to be released Summer 2021.

We are sure you won't be shocked to find that, like most humans, Dan Brown has a Facebook page, if you care to stalk him before calling the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservations to see Dan's headiner debut at our club.

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".

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".

Funny Stop Comedian

Rich Vos

TWO NIGHTS ONLY!

It is hard to believe, but true, that it has been nearly two years since this man last stepped foot on the Funny Stop stage.

Best known from NBC's hit reality show "Last Comic Standing", Rich Vos is one of the most exciting comedians in the country.

Back Stage Magazine says of Vos, "He has an uncanny 'everyman' ability to likeably bond with anyone in the audience."

A Rich Vos show features a unique, no-holds-barred perspective on relationships, divorce and parenthood.

From his rock solid material, to his lightning fast crowd work, Rich Vos proves each show why he was one of the last comics standing.

On Comedy Central, Rich Vos has appeared in not one, but two of his own half-hour specials, Comic View Premium Blend, and as a featured panelist on its "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" show. He was also the first white comedian to perform on Def Comedy Jam, has made appearances on HBO, Showtime, Starz and Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel. Rich Vos can also be seen in the hit Netflix movie Women Aren’t Funny, which he also produced.

As a comedy writer, he has come up with the best lines for the Comedy Central Roasts and was a writer this year on the Oscars for the second time. His first Academy Awards gig was preparing material for Chris Rock's hosting appearance.

Rich Vos has been a regular guest on the "Opie and Anthony" and "Bob and Tom" radio shows, has his own podcast, appears on many other people's podcasts and co-hosts the radio show "My Wife Hates Me" with his co-host and wife, comedian Bonnie McFarlane.

If that is not enough, you can download any one of his 4 cd's from iTunes.

Here is your chance to catch the unbelievable talent of Rich Vos in a limited, return appearance at the Funny Stop Comedy Club.

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.
