Jason Russell

Three Nights Only!

Born to a white mother and a black father, Jason Russell had to learn how to be funny or fight! Like most comedians, finding a way to be silly in class was a way to get attention from class mates and teachers! Some teachers were amused others had no sense of humor.

Every Saturday night, Jason's Family would have a family party with chips, candy bars and watch SCTV and SNL. Watching the different characters on TV, Jason would try to imitate them, that's when he started creating voices and doing little skits for family and friends!

Watching Eddie Murphy And Richard Pryor, Jason could recite their lines throughout the whole show. He says, "I remember watching Jim Carry on Evening At The Improv and thinking how cool he was and saying to myself how I would love to be a comedian."

His first real taste of the stage was in high school where he was picked to host a school talent show. Jason even asked some of the teachers if he could do an impression of them on stage, they said, "No"! Having felt so comfortable up on stage he began to think, "Maybe I could do stand-up!"

Jason's comedy style is silly, full of different characters and unforgettable facial expressions. His strong personality and explosive energy lets audiences know right from the start that this is going to be a ride! Never using dirty language, his show is a cross between Richard Pryor, Jim Carey and his high school Gym teacher Mr. Clacus!!

Jason Russell has been in the documentary "Crossing the Lines" about interracial comedians, has worked with Martin Lawrence and Patti LaBelle, and has even been an extra on the tv show Prison Break.

Check out Jason's website by clicking HERE, then pick up the phone and call our Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservation to see Jason Russell as he makes a return appearance this week at the Funny Stop.

Memorial Day Weekend

Mike Polk Jr. is a Cleveland based comedian best known for his viral internet videos such as "The Cleveland Tourism Video", "The One Semester of Spanish Love Song", and the web series "Man in The Box" which combined have over 50,000,000 views on YouTube.

Polk has been performing stand up and sketch comedy for over ten years and has won both Scene Magazine and Cleveland Magazine's "Best Comedian in Cleveland" distinctions on multiple occasions.

Mike recently authored the popular book: "Damn Right I'm From Cleveland: Your Guide To Makin' It In America's 47th Biggest City (that now has distribution as far away as the Canton-Akron Airport gift show. Wow!!!)

Mike Polk Jr. can now be seen on Fox 8, where he contributes to "New Day Cleveland", "The Rizzo Show", and produces his own monthly comedy special (which, ironically, Fox 8 likes to air weekly), "The Mike Polk Jr. Show".

Mike's stage show is a unique combination of traditional stand up, music, video, and audience involvement that makes for a truly original comedy experience.

Check out his work at MikePolkJr.com and come see him LIVE and IN PERSON on the Funny Stop stage in this limited, "Two Night Only" appearance.
