Two Nights Only!
When a knee injury forced Bill out of Super Bowl XXVII, Boronkay knew he had to limp into a different direction.
Embarking on a sportscasting career, Bill graced televisions in the finest destinations of Myrtle Beach, Clarksburg WV, Evansville IN, and Kansas City before landing in sunny Cleveland, where he was assigned various hazardous duties. Along the way, Boronkay won 5 Emmy's, one of which is proudly displayed behind a lamp in his mother's home office.
After a failed audition with ESPN (a mirror was involved), Bill reevaluated his career and took off in lukewarm pursuit of his true 13th dream...stand-up comedy.
Boronkay continues to work in tv while he travels the comedy road, sharing his less than remarkable life experiences with audiences throughout the area.
Don't miss your chance to see Bill Boronkay headline the a pair of shows both Friday and Saturday nights at the Funny Stop.
Jake Soloman Crowned
As "Ohio's Best
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".
