Funny Stop Comedian

Angel Salazar

Two Shows on both
Friday and Saturday!

After being closed for over 2 months due the State of Ohio's "Stay At Home" Orders, the Funny Stop is thrilled to host actor/comedian Angel Salazar back for a special, 3 night only, appearance to re-open the club.

For many, their first introduction fo Angel Salazar was his dramatic roles in films like "Scarface" and "Carlito's Way". For others, it was seeing him on NBC's "Last Comic Standing".

With Cuban-American roots and a penchant for sporting attire almost as risque as his routine, Angel Salazar has rapidly become one of live comedy's heavy-hitter acts.

With an act that combines music, comedy, and even a bit of a 'Magic Mike' routine, Angel Salizar's performances are high energy wth a lot of crowd participation.

It should come as no surprise that Angel Salizar has sold out venues across the country. Audiences are stunned to find out that this rapid-fire performance is coming from a man in his late 50s.

Make your reservations now to see Angel Salazar during this "Three Night Only!" appearance by calling the Funny Stop Box Office at 330-923-4700.

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:

Keep an eye on the Funny Stop schedule for the club's next competition to see who is "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".

June 4th-6th

Funny Stop Comedian

Scott White

Two Shows on both
Friday and Saturday!

Born in Dearborn, Michigan. Scott White started doing comedy in his first year of college. He took on a partner, entered a contest and came in dead last.

It took another 10 years to get back on the stage. After 25 brutal winters in Michigan Scott moved to Houston, Texas and began his way back on the stage with stand-up comedy.

Well, as it is stated in the comic rule book, you need to wait tables before you can start doing comedy full time which he did. When the restaurant closed its doors Scott figured this was a good jumping off point, and so started doing comedy full time.

Scott White has worked all over the United States, plus overseas entertaining our troops in Korea, Japan and Guam. He has worked with some of the best (and worst) comics in the business and keeps on coming back for more.

Scott still runs with the wind to get to his dream! Being a road comic full-time, he knows the hardship of the road and pushes himself more towards his dreams. The admiration Scott demonstrates is complete professionalism and respect in his business with the compassion for others. The combination of talent, determination and hard work, makes this particular comic one to follow his career to the top.

You can also hear Scott's CD, "Dirty White Boy", on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. This high energy comic still leaves the audience hysterical with laughter when heading out the exit door!

With too many Scott White's on the internet, check out his unique take on his name at the website ScottyBlanco.com, then call the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to make a reservation to see this unique comedian during this 3 night appearance at the 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.
