September 14-16
Kevin Farley

Encore Appearance

When Kevin Farley made his Funny Stop debut in February, two things quickly became clear.

1) This guy is a great comic

and

2) We needed to book him again, for a longer appearance to accomodate all of the people who wanted to see him perform.

Pete immediately took care of #2 by booking Kevin Farley for a 3 night appearance which begins on Thursday, September 14th, so with that... the Funny Stop is proud to welcome Kevin Farley as he makes his encore performance at our club.

To answer your first question, yes, Kevin is the brother of Saturday Night Live legend and movie actor Chris Farley.

Here is more about this weekend's headliner.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kevin Farley studied at the famous Second City in Chicago. It wasn't long after that he appeared in films such as Black Sheep (with his brother Chris Farley) and The Waterboy with Adam Sandler.

Soon after, Farley landed a starring role as character Doug Linus on MTV's sitcom "2gether" where he was met with rave reviews. Farley then went on to star with top billing in the feature films "An American Carol" and "White Knight". Other films to his credits are "Crowning Jules", "Frat Pack" and "Joe Dirt 2".

Kevin Farley's TV guest appearances have been on Hawaii Five-O, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Rules of Engagement, The Neighbors, Just Shoot Me and United States of Tara to name a few.

Farley moved behind the camera as co-writer and co-director of "Hollywood & Wine", which takes an irreverent look at an actress struggling in Hollywood. In addition, Farley directed the comedy "Paranormal Movie". The film pokes fun of the "found footage" horror, sub-genre popular with movie goers today.

To his credit, and met with high praise in all the national reviews, Farley was Co-Executive Producer of the heartwarming "I Am Chris Farley", a feature-length biographical documentary about his brother Chris, the late comedy legend. Presently Farley is co-starring in "F is for Family", a Netflix comedy series, This year he will be co-starring in CMT's new series "Still the King".

When Farley is not writing screenplays, producing or directing or on set filming, he regularly embraces the stage in stand-up comedy. Farley usually appears as the headline act nation-wide in clubs such as The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, and The Improv, but he has also opened for David Spade, Chris Rock, Norm MacDonald, Jeff Ross, Todd Glass, Kevin Nealon and Jeff Richards. Along the lines of stand-up comedy, Farley starred in a New York musical about comedians called "HA! The Musical".

Farley has hosted many live shows, and has been featured on The Today Show, The View, Extra, Fox News and countless radio shows. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California and is involved with the non-profit organization The American Irish Fund.

Kevin Farley has truly established himself as comedic presence both on the big screen and off. Multi-tasking as a comedian, actor, writer, director and producer seems easy for Farley because he does it all, with a fabulous sense of humor.

We are so pleased to host Kevin Farley in his encore performance at the Funny Stop on September 14th, 15th and 16th.

Funny Stop Comedian

September 21-23
Jay Stevens

First Appearance in 3 Years

A lot has happened to Jay Stevens during his more than a decade and a half in the comedy business.

Born Shawn D. Stevenson, and formerly known as "B.L.A.C.", Jay Stevens has been a professional comedian since 2002. Growing up he was always known as a hilarious outgoing character by friends, family, colleagues and those he would meet on a first encounter.

Having a passion to make people laugh he surprisingly was not seeking a career in the comedy industry, it was not until he gave his life to the Lord in 1997 that he felt the yearning to share this "gift" to entertain people.

His very first show was at a church "Solomon's Temple COGIC" in 1999 where he realized that laughter is a healing medicine. Since then he has been very successful at making people laugh from the church to the comedy club.

His clean comedy style reaches all audiences. Jay believes that sowing the gift of laughter is the best gift one can give, and doing so has allowed him to perform over with comedians including Gary Owen, Damon Williams, Dat Phan, John Witherspoon, Jon Lovitz and many others.

Growing up people always told him that he had a radio voice and should do radio and voice over work so he is pursuing the non-comedic side of his gift in radio and acting, the stars are there for the grabbing and Jay plans on grabbing them all.

This year alone, Jay Stevens will perform at clubs and venues in a dozen different states and the Virgin Islands, including his return this week to the Funny Stop after a more than 3 year absence.

You can learn even more about Jay Stevens by visiting his Facebook page, found by clicking HERE and by visiting his website at JayStevensLive.com.
