Kyle is also a co-founder of Detroit comedy collective, 313 Comedy, and Motor City Comedy Festival. He has also had the pleasure of opening for comedians such as Brian Posehn, Joe Mande, Erik Griffin, Jay Larson, and Brody Stevens.

Growing up a huge fan of comedy, the fire to perform slowly simmered inside feature act Chad Jagotka.  Life caught up, and those thoughts took a back seat as his children were born.  Eventually that simmer turned into a fire that couldn’t be contained any longer.  Stepping on stage in 2015, Chad has been crisscrossing the state, and into Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois ever since!

Headliner Kevin Downey Jr. is not related to Robert Downey Jr.  He has, however, been labeled as ‘refreshingly bizarre”.  He has appeared on “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” and “America’s Got Talent”.  He made his television debut at age six in Detroit on “The Bozo Show” and never looked back.  He has been heard on the Bob and Tom show and SiriusXM and he has been a columnist for Gentleman’s Quarterly and Bachelor Pad Magazine.  He is a regular at the Tropicana in Las Vegas and Comedy Central.

Feature act Steve Guy grew up in the Cleveland, OH and is a stand-up comedian, a published author, an ordained minister for weddings, podcast host/moderator, game show host, a pro wrestling ring announcer, and more. They say that one should try to focus and be great at one thing. Steve’s love of the world and life makes him unable to limit himself. In his mind, if he concentrated on just one thing, that’s less opportunity to put more smiles on more faces. He’s the epitome of throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks.

Headliner Kris Shaw is a fan favorite who tours comedy clubs, colleges and events all across the United States and Canada. He has entertained troops in Iraq, Kuwait, Japan, Korea, Bahrain, Dubai, Kyrgestan and Africa. He also appears in national television commercials and had a recurring extra role on the CBS drama Close to Home.  Kris is a storyteller who, with quick bursts of wit and carefully crafted silences, keeps the audience engaged through everyday observations and tough topics alike. His slightly askew but lovable style disarms and charms from the first set-up to the final punch line. There isn’t so much as a hint of meanness in his spirit, and that good energy spills onto the stage and beyond. You will find yourself laughing out loud, delighted at how easily you relate to this uniquely funny guy.
