Funny Stop Comedian

Kevin Farley

3 Nights Only!

In 2017, Funny Stop fans got their first opportunity to see Kevin Farley live and in person on our stage. In his Funny Stop debut, two things quickly became clear.

1) This guy is a great comic

and

2) Two nights was not a long enough booking to accommodate all of the people who wanted to see him perform.

Pete has taken care of #2 by booking Kevin Farley for a 3 night appearance on Thursday through Saturday, May 16th through the 18th, so with that... the Funny Stop is proud to welcome Kevin Farley for a return appearance at our club.

To answer your first question, yes, Kevin is the brother of Saturday Night Live legend and movie actor Chris Farley.

Here is more about this weekend's headliner.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kevin Farley studied at the famous Second City in Chicago. It wasn't long after that he appeared in films such as Black Sheep (with his brother Chris Farley) and The Waterboy with Adam Sandler.

Soon after, Farley landed a starring role as character Doug Linus on MTV's sitcom "2gether" where he was met with rave reviews. Farley then went on to star with top billing in the feature films "An American Carol" and "White Knight". Other films to his credits are "Crowning Jules", "Frat Pack" and "Joe Dirt 2". Kevin Farley's TV guest appearances have been on Hawaii Five-O, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Rules of Engagement, The Neighbors, Just Shoot Me and United States of Tara to name a few.

Farley moved behind the camera as co-writer and co-director of "Hollywood & Wine", which takes an irreverent look at an actress struggling in Hollywood. In addition, Farley directed the comedy "Paranormal Movie". The film pokes fun of the "found footage" horror, sub-genre popular with movie goers today.

To his credit, and met with high praise in all the national reviews, Farley was Co-Executive Producer of the heartwarming "I Am Chris Farley", a feature-length biographical documentary about his brother Chris, the late comedy legend. Presently Farley is co-starring in "F is for Family", a Netflix comedy series, This year he will be co-starring in CMT's new series "Still the King".

When Farley is not writing screenplays, producing or directing or on set filming, he regularly embraces the stage in stand-up comedy. Farley usually appears as the headline act nation-wide in clubs such as The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, and The Improv, but he has also opened for David Spade, Chris Rock, Norm MacDonald, Jeff Ross, Todd Glass, Kevin Nealon and Jeff Richards. Along the lines of stand-up comedy, Farley starred in a New York musical about comedians called "HA! The Musical".

Farley has hosted many live shows, and has been featured on The Today Show, The View, Extra, Fox News and countless radio shows. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California and is involved with the non-profit organization The American Irish Fund.

Kevin Farley has truly established himself as comedic presence both on the big screen and off. Multi-tasking as a comedian, actor, writer, director and producer seems easy for Farley because he does it all, with a fabulous sense of humor.

We are so pleased to host Kevin Farley this weekend at the Funny Stop. Check out his Twitter feed by clicking HERE, his YouTube channel by clicking HERE and his website, KevinFarleyOfficial.com, then call our Box Office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservation today.

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".

Funny Stop Comedian

Mary Santora

3 Nights Only!

Hailing from Cleveland, Mary Santora is a fresh breath of femininity in the otherwise male dominated world of stand up.

Mary's quick witted, observational style has landed her the opportunity to not only travel across the country in various clubs, but to open for comedic greats such as Jen Kirkman, Dave Attell, Kyle Kinane and Tom Papa.

Santora took second place at the 2015 Cleveland Comedy Festival, was named The Best Local Female Comedian by the Cleveland Scene Magazine both 2016 and 2017, was chosen to compete in the 2018 Best of the Midwest competition at LaughFest in Grand Rapids, MI and is continuing to quickly make a name for herself as one of the best up and coming comics in the Midwest.

While you may not know the face, you may know her voice from her weekday afternoon appearances on the Alan Cox Show on 100.7, WMMS.

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.
