Three Nights Only!

After about a nearly 2-1/2 year absence from our stage, the Funny Stop is happy to welcome Mr. Jake Iannarino back to the club.

Jake Iannarino is a comedian, actor, improvisational artist, and musician based in Columbus, Ohio. Jake's career began at the age of 17 when he was the youngest person admitted into Midwest Comedy Tool & Die, a nationally touring improv group.

Jake has toured the country as a headlining and feature stand up act, has been in two feature films produced by Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions and recorded two CD's for Laughing Hyena Records. Three of Jake's audio productions are available on iTunes as well.

Jake Iannarino was the featured act at both the Montreal Comedy Festival and Just for Laughs Festival in Las Vegas because of his wins in the Destination Stardom and PAX TV Star 2000 contests.

In addition to appearing at scores of different comedy clubs around the country, Jake has two TV projects... writing, producing, and featuring in The Flipside (with Michael Loftus) as well as his roll as Producer, writer and feature in American Wiseass on The History Channel.

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".

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

MIKE PARAMORE

Funny Stop Debut!

Mike Paramore is the guy you fight to sit next to in a movie theatre, on a long car ride, or during a boring lecture.

His natural ability to infuse everyday situations with energetic, uplifting humor, combined with a natural ability to put you at ease is key to his personal brand of comedy.

Paramore's smooth delivery and powerful punchlines make him a force in stand-up comedy, which is very apparent in his debut album "The Things We Tell Ourselves", available now on iTunes and Amazon.

In addition to performing at the 2010 Stellar Awards and being a part of the 2012 Just for Laughs Festival, Mike was a finalist in the 2014 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, winner of the 2015 Cleveland Comedy Festival, winner of the 2016 Laughing Devil Festival in New York City and winner of the 2017 Laugh Fest's "Best in the Midwest" competition.

Mike Paramore was a featured act on AXTV's Live at Gotham in NYC as well as a featured comedian on FOX's hit show "Laughs".

Now you can see him, live and in person, in his debut 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.
