A decade into his standup career, Steve Gillespie moved from Minneapolis to LA, recently made an appearance on Conan, and released his critically acclaimed first album, Stever Fever. Prior to that, this gentleman degenerate spent most of his life traveling the country regaling audiences with his delightful self-destruction.
Gillespie’s act is a slaphappy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona and coarse yet effective word choice. His hilarious self-flagellation and blistering social commentary has also earned him spots on Fox’s Laughs as well as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. He was a finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic, a runner up for Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laughfest, and his debut album Stever Fever from Rooftop Comedy was named a top-10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.
Gillespie has also had the pleasure of sharing the biggest stages with some of the best comics in the country, including opening appearances for Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, Tom Segura, Kyle Kinnane, Tom Green, Harland Williams, Doug Benson, Emo Phillips, and Gilbert Gottfried.

Chris Knutson has been testing his free-wheeling, experimental style of comedy in the Twin Cities for several years now, and has recently won the Acme’s Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest for 2010. Knutson is a Fringe Festival veteran, a co-producer, writer and performer of the topical sketch comedy series “The Weekly: Yesterday’s News Today,” is one half of the comedy rap duo “Valley Meadows.” With unique ideas, innovative structure, and a goofy demeanor you’re sure to enjoy Chris’s stylin’ comedy stylings.
Antonio Aguilar has performed at comedy festivals such as Laughfest, The Cleveland Comedy Festival and has opened for nationally touring headliners such as Bret Ernst, B.T., Vince Morris, Willie Farrell, Erin Foley, Erik Griffin, Mike Green and others. After moving to Madison, Wisconsin to pursue a liberal arts degree, or as he likes to call it, a customer service degree, Antonio decided he wanted to become a stand-up comedian. After watching him perform for the first time, his software programmer father told him to "be more like Chris Rock," to which he replied "be more like Bill Gates." Solid advice. Some people think he looks like Fez from That 70's Show. Some people think he looks like the woman that killed Selena. No wonder he drinks!
