Hannah is quite a “Road Dog” (cool industry term). While she lives in Nashville, she is often driving down the interstate heading to her next gig. When she is not working at her home club at Zanies in Nashville, she is making people laugh at other great venues across North America. Some of the clubs she’s performed at recently include The Laughing Skull and The Punchline in Atlanta, The Comedy Attic in Bloomington, IN, The Loony Bin in Little Rock AR and Wichita KS, various Comedy Zones across the south east, The Seaside REP Theater in Florida, The Improv in Syracuse NY and Epic Comedy in Huntsville AL.

Turner Barrowman, started comedy in 2012 right after graduating from college (thats right, college!) and has quickly climbed the ranks of the Twin Cities comedy scene. He can be seen performing regularly at comedy clubs around the city, as well as hosting and producing his own comedy show "Boy Kisses" in a table top gaming store in Uptown Minneapolis. Turner also wrote and starred in a 2014 Fringe Festival Show called "Supernova!", listed as one of Vita.mn's "Notable new comedies" for the year. In 2015, Turner was invited to perform at the Arch City Comedy Festival as well as the Orlando Indie Comedy Festival. Turner's aggressive playfulness on stage and DIY attitude off stage has allowed him to explore and push the boundaries of live comedy in Minneapolis. Turner is nice. Invite him to dinner.
