Special Co-Headliner Shows

Enjoy double the laughs with our special "Co-Headliners" shows this week at the Funny Stop with Kate Brindle & Brent Terhune.

Kate Brindle

Described as "smart", "original" and "hilarious", Kate Brindle is a unique breath of fresh air on the comedy scene.

Kate has performed her sarcastic yet upbeat and spunky style of comedy on the Canadian Broadcast Channel, Cox Cable and Comcast Cable. She advanced in the California's Funniest Female Contest and was featured in the Oddball Comedy Festival and International Great Plains Comedy Festival.  She has also opened for Louie Anderson, Dave Attell, Bill Burr, Kevin Nealon, Kevin Pollak and Sarah Silverman. 

Originally from Dexter, Michigan (Population: 72), Kate moved to New York City to study acting at New York University. Since then she has been entertaining audiences at venues across the nation such as Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle, Dr. Grins Comedy Club... and every bowling alley, basement, and dive in between.

An audience favorite, Kate brings to the stage her quick wit and impeccable timing.  Whether she is talking about her family or making quirky observations of everyday life, Kate continues to charm crowds with her witty and sassy brand of humor.  

She is currently performing her stand-up act on stages across the United States and Canada. Catch this rising star while you can, including this week at the Funny Stop!

Brent Terhune

Brent Terhune got his start in stand-up comedy in Indianapolis, Indiana at the age of 16.

Most people would describe him as a white man, but according to Brent he “got the black knocked off of him at an early age when he refused to clean up his room” and he is now doomed to walk the earth as a pale redhead or as he likes to call himself a real "OG" or Original Ginger.

Not many comics can pull off Brent's laid-back style of comedy and still remain just as absurd, relevant, and funny as he is. Whether talking about the everyday struggles of being a redhead, life as a college student and radio DJ, or his off-the-wall Uncle Frank and family, Brent is sure to keep you laughing well after he's left the stage.

Brent Terhune was a huge hit at the 2012 Cleveland Comedy Festival, where he came in 2nd place in the competition.

Since then he has been extremely busy. Aside from touring, he writes for "The Bob and Tom Show", co-hosts the pro wrestling podcast “Wrastlemania”, and recently released his first stand-up album "Mr. Turkey".

Come see Brent Terhune this week at the Funny Stop.

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".

Funny Stop Comedian

Mark Riccadonna

3 Nights Only!

The Funny Stop is proud to introduce the area to Mark Riccadonna as he makes his second solo headlining appearance at the club this week.

Mark Riccadonna grew up an artsy jock outside of Youngstown, Ohio. At age 17 (like a bad independent movie), Mark moved to New York City in search of himself and happiness. He pursued Theatre at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, joining "The Company" after graduation.

Soon after, Mark stumbled upon Stand-Up Comedy and found success as a storyteller, performing throughout New York City, and 'on the road'.

Mark Riccadonna continues to climb the ranks in the world of stand-up. He is a gifted storyteller, with a charisma that makes you feel like you've known him forever, unique delivery, signature voice (that has landed him several commercials) and likability.

In his debut at the Funny Stop, you will see why he is a favorite at clubs and theatres everywhere.

Mark currently also performs for Armed Forces Entertainment, and has entertained U.S. and U.N. Troops worldwide, performing in six continents while working with his childhood heroes.

Take a look at Mark Riccadonna's website (with both stand-up and sketch videos) at MarkRiccadonna.com and see what is on his mind on his Twitter account found HERE, then make a reservation to see him during this limited, three night only headlining appearance at the Funny Stop.

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.
