Headliner:
Sheng Wang

Sheng Wang

Sheng Wang is a Taiwanese Texan who developed and honed his comedy in the thriving standup community of the San Francisco Bay Area. He performs jokes based on personal experiences and observations and addresses common non-sense with honesty and ill logic. His refreshingly affable stage presence combined with a healthy penchant for absurdity and self-deprecation make his act hilarious and universally accessible.

He has toured with the Comedians of Comedy and American Eagle’s ‘Campus Comedy Challenge.’ He has also appeared on Comedy Central’s ‘Live at Gotham' and attended the 'Just for Laughs’ comedy festival in Montreal.  Wang's half hour Comedy Central special aired in 2011.  NBC also awarded him with a holding deal that same year.  Wang's appearance on the John Oliver NY Stand Up Show aired in August of 2012.



Feature:
Denise Ramsden

Denise Ramsden

Denise Ramsden is an innovative, original comedian, as she blends biting sarcasm and bold humor with personal experiences. Born and raised on the South side of Chicago, Denise loves to sarcastically pay tribute to her Irish Catholic upbringing. While a favorite among female audiences, her natural, honest sense of humor also greatly appeals to men, and no one is safe from the infectious laugh infused throughout her act. Denise discusses familiar topics and situations, which give her an accessible quality few comics share, but it is a combination that all audiences remember …or whatever…


After graduating from Illinois with a degree in film, it seemed obvious to move to Los Angeles for immediate fame and fortune. Those plans went slightly awry, though Denise did meet numerous not-so-famous celebrities and hangers-on. She took an overpriced stand-up class (only possible by a loan from her brother) and made her debut at the famed Comedy Store. After moving back to Chicago, she toiled at the Open Mics, but finally got a chance to open for one of her favorite comics, Margaret Smith, who ironically told Denise that she should move to L.A. D’oh.


Anyhoo, Denise continues to sharpen her comedic skills in Chicago, and clubs and weird one-nighters all over the Midwest. She has gotten the chance to work with such comics as Jake Johannsen (her favorite), Kevin Pollak, and Artie Lange. After participating in year-long Survivor-like contest, Denise was voted Chicagoland’s Funniest New Talent at the Barrel of Laughs in January 2004. Plus, you can run into her vending/slinging Old Style and movie lines almost every game at Wrigley Field, just listen for her laugh.
