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.

"Skippy" from NBC's "Family Ties"
Loved by millions as Skippy from the hugely popular 80's sitcom 'FAMILY TIES' starring Michael J. Fox, we want to welcome back to our stage Mr. Marc Price.
Funny Stop audiences got their first chance to see Marc last spring as part of his 2016 "Fresh Jar of Skippy" and "Legends of SitCom" tours for which the Los Angeles Times said he's "REFRESHINGLY BRIGHT" and the Boston Globe dubbed Marc "WICKEDLY FUNNY" !
Now Marc Price is back for his 50th Birthday Celebration... right here at the Funny Stop.
As a stand up comedian, Marc Price has opened for Jay Leno and Jerry Seinfeld. He's starred in movies, hosted late night talk shows and more recently he's behind the cameras. In the last several years, he has been writing and producing for E!, TBS, Disney Channel, Animal Planet, GSN, Showtime and more.
Reaction to Marc Price's first appearance at the Funny Stop was so strong that Pete offered him the opportunity to increase his stay to THREE BIG NIGHTS for this booking, and thankfully Marc accepted that invitation.
Make your reservations today to see Marc Price, live and in-person at the Funny Stop by calling our box office at 330-923-4700.
