Funny Stop Comedian

BASSEM YOUSSEF

His Funny Stop Debut

Bassem Youssef has led a crazy life… he was a heart surgeon, then created the most popular political satire show in the Middle East, Al Bernameg, and was dubbed the Jon Stewart of the Middle Eastbecause of it.

But, he seemed to have tickled the wrong kind of people. He was arrested, interrogatedand eventually had to escape a dictatorship in his home country, Egypt, to find refuge in America. Just intime for Donald Trump to become president!

He has been touring his unique one man show and telling his story through stand up comedy, storytelling and multimedia. The show is funny, engaging, and gives a different perspective into what it means to be funny in the wrong time and place.

See Bassem Youssef in his first ever appearance at the Funny Stop on Thursday, March 11th through Saturday, March 13th.

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

TAMMY PESCATELLI

Two Nights Only!

Arguably one of the hardest working women in comedy today, Tammy Pescatelli brings brassy sexiness with a bold voice of witty sarcasm to her audiences, holding her own on the topics of sports, television, dating and family life using tongue-in- cheek humor.

She is relatable to every audience member-male & female. After seeing Tammy perform, nearly everyone wishes she was their best friend or sister!

“Tammy Pescatelli’s :Way After School Special”, her new special, is a highly anticipated follow up to Tammy’s award winning one hour Netflix (now both on Amazon Prime) special, “Finding the Funny.” Also this year, Tammy has appeared on the highly acclaimed Showtime Comedy Special “Women Of A Certain Age 2”.

Tammy was chosen to be one of the few hosts of a new network, Circle TV’s standup show called “Standup Nashville: Live From Zanies”. The clip from Tammy’s appearance on the “Just For Laugh’s Gala with Sebastian Maniscalco” continues to climb in views on the JFL Facebook and YouTube page, collectively garnering close to 50 million views.

Signed to Git R’ Done Records, Larry the Cable Guy’s label, Tammy took funny back in time with her successful 2019 album release, “#TBT: THROWBACK TAMMY”. #TBT debuted at the coveted number 2 spot on the iTunes and is in continuous play on SiriusXM, Pandora and many others.

Tammy has had recent big appearances on The View, Guy’s Grocery Games:Comics Compete and The Howard Stern Show and her being chosen by Jenny McCarthy & Donnie Wahlberg to be a part of their Dirty, Sexy, Funny franchise that included a hilarious all-female slate of standup comedians comedy special on EPIX/ Hulu, a touring show and a pilot for A&E.

With a slew of other accolades under her belt – including co- creating, executive producing, writing and starring in her own reality show, A Stand-Up Mother, on the WeTV Network – Tammy has appeared on a number of television shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (4x), A&E's Donnie Loves Jenny (twice), Bravo’s Rocco’s Dinner Party, CBS’s The Talk, NBC’s Last Comic Standing: The Best of the Best, her own Comedy Central Present Special that won that year's Comedy Central's Standup Showdown, and many, many more.

Tammy’s career jumpstarted after appearing - and being one of the Final 5 - on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Her season played out to more than 18 million viewers, garnering her a mass of loyal new fans that found themselves alongside the others she had created by years of touring the comedy clubs.

It solidified her as one of the sharpest comics in the comedy world! Pescatelli also guested a number of times on the syndicated Comics Unleashed show and was chosen for their “Best of the Best” that was a world-wide top selling DVD. Internationally she also was featured on the Best of the Just For Laughs, in Montreal, Quebec Canada and The World Stands Up & The Laugh Factory in Europe and Australia.

Tammy’s material is a currently a fixture on the comedy channels of Sirius XM Radio. The Comedy Channels bestowed upon her the very covet honor of her own “UnMasked with Ron Bennington”. Tammy is a regular guest of: The Howard Stern Wrap Up Show, Jenny McCarthy’s “Dirty, Sexy, Funny” (where she often co-hosts), TapOut and Bennington. She has made frequent appearances on the syndicated The Bob & Tom Show.

Tammy recently starred as the flawed, yet lovable lead in in “That’s Amore”- an independent “grown up rom-com” that is available Amazon Prime. Her film credits include: Made in Brooklyn, I Am Battle Comic, Single: A Documentary Film and Everybody Wants to Be Italian. Also a regular on USO Comedy tours, Tammy is honored and humbled to have been privileged to have entertained our troops all over the world.

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.
