About the Comedians
HEADLINER – STEVE GILLESPIE
Steve Gillespie has appeared on CONAN, Amazon Prime’s “Inside Joke”, and FOX’s “Laughs – All Stars”. Gillespie’s act a is a slaphappy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona that has earned him spots at some of the best festivals in country including the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, 10k Laughs, and High Plains Comedy Festival in Denver, CO. He was named a finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic, runner up for Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laughfest, and his debut album “Steve Fever” was named a top 10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.
Gillespie’s second comedy album “Alive on State” reached #1 on iTunes Comedy Charts and hit the top 10 on the Billboard charts. His 3rd comedy album “Liminal Bliss” was released earlier this year with Helium Comedy Records. It reached #2 on the iTunes Comedy Charts, so he is getting worse.
Gillespie has also had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the best comics in the country, including opening appearances for Rory Scovel, Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, Tom Segura, Kyle Kinnane, Tom Green, Harland Williams, Shane Mauss, Doug Benson, Emo Phillips, and Gilbert Gottfried.
Ryan Kahl is a stand-up comedian based out of Minneapolis, MN. Ryan has performed in The 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, and Cream City Comedy Festival, was a finalist in the 2017 Funniest Person in Minneapolis Contest, and was a 2018 Growler Magazine Comic To Watch. He is whimsical, fast paced, and takes a fairly conventional approach to joke telling that feels anything but conventional.
