Headliner:
Steve Gillespie

Steve Gillespie
Hailing from Minneapolis, where after receiving a degree in something or other Steve became really bored and started telling jokes into a microphone. He first began honing his craft at the Acme Comedy Club, and has quickly emerged as a fast-rising talent in one of the strongest and most competitive comedy scenes in the country. Metromix magazine named Steve one of the top comedians in the Twin Cities.
Steve has been on the road non-stop for the past for years, appearing in some of the best comedy clubs in the country, including opening appearances for Kyle Kinnane, Rory Scovel, Dave Attel, Tom Green, Harland Williams, Jim Breuer, Gilbert Gottfried, and Doug Benson.
In 2010 he performed at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival and in 2011 he appeared in the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival. In 2012, Steve was named a finalist in CMT's Next Big Comic Award. His first comedy album Stever Fever, produced by Rooftop Records, came out in 2013 and was named one of the top ten albums of 2013 by Comedy-Reviews.com. This past March he performed at Gilda's Laughfest, where he was named runner-up for the Best of the Midwest.

Feature:
Chris Knutson

Chris Knutson

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.



Host:
Antonio Aguilar

Antonio Aguilar

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!
