Like a small dog after drinking a red bull, Drufke seems to have boundless energy and a lot to say about a lot of topics. Matt has worked with such comedians as Michael Palascak, Nick DiPaolo, and Hannibal Buress, and appeared on ABC's "Windy City Live". You can find all on his insanity on twitter (@ihatemattdrufke), and if you're good at writing comedy bios, he will pay you $15 to write something better than this.

Not afraid to punch above his weight class, Alex can be seen performing across the Midwest.
