WRY, WITTY, CUNNING, AND CRASS Detroit native Mike Stanley is all of these things, but none, when put on paper, quite manage to serve the justice dealt by Stanley onstage. Yeah, he's pretty hilarious, but more than just coarse anecdotes about life and sex,there's an enviable amount of heart and warmth behind Stanley's humor.
Given his penchant toward brutal honesty, spiced up with a healthy dose of insatiable wit, it's not difficult to see why Stanley was named "Best Chicago Stand-up
Comedian" in a Peoples Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader and "Best Detroit Comedian" by HOUR Magazine.
Originally hailing from Detroit, and after spending a decade honing his craft in the Windy City of Chicago, Mike tours constantly, both domestically and internationally. Don't miss out on an incredible opportunity to catch the man in action - this high level of killer stand-up is too remarkable to sit out.
Originally from upstate South Carolina, Nick combines that old southern storytelling tradition with a keen eye and a paranoid view on society that will have you laughing out loud and thinking to yourself and possibly vice-versa. Nick Hart possesses that stray dog charm that grandmothers and anarchists alike find endearing. He is the philosopher's comic. He is the thinkers comic. He is Stefan Davis' hero. He is your hero's comic. He is an enabler with ideas doing his best picking up where his heroes left off, carrying the message wrapped up in the voice of dissent.
Originally from Ecuador, Esteban Touma is a comedian, writer, teacher, and a conditional permanent resident of the United States who is considering applying for citizenship, so everything he says or writes might be monitored by the Customs and Border Protection Agency.
Esteban has been performing comedy all over the Midwest and in his home country, Ecuador. He LOVES the United States and freedom. He has opened for nationally recognized comedians such as Carl Labove and Wyatt Cenac. He supports American pie in 3 different formats: song, movie, and desert.
Some of his comedy comes from the perspective of a part Palestinian/part Latino living in the United States. However, he would never dare to openly criticize or otherwise engage in political activities that may compromise the values of his host country, and thus risk delays, processing fees, or even deportation.
He was a finalist in Madison’s Funniest Comic 2016, he’s the host of The Moth StorySLAM, an open-mic storytelling competition held in 25 cities all around the world, and he has earned both a tourist and student visa before getting a Green Card by a good faith marriage.
The U.S. Government has officially declared that he’s an “authorized legal alien with a reentry permit.”
