Host Kevin Haas is a full-time journalist that hails from Rockford Illinois. When he's not in the News Tower, he's at home thinking of weird stuff to say to strangers. Kevin can be seen in bars and comedy clubs all over the Midwest.

Guest Feature Scott Galvin has performed all throughout the Midwest entertaining crowds of all types and sizes with his dry and witty approach to comedy since 2011. He has opened for Chris Pontius, Preston Lacey, Dave Englund and Weeman from Jackass, as well as Randy and Mr. Lahey from Trailer Park Boys. Galvin has also opened for veteran touring comedians Scott Long, Kris Shaw, Russ Williamson, Peter-john Byrnes and Vince Carone. Known for his one liners, Galvin's soft spoken and shoegazing delivery has made him a favorite among the Midwest comedy scene. Scott has headlined Prime Time Nine at the WIP Theater in Chicago and has performed at Still Not Friday in Aurora, IL and A O.K. Comedy in St. Charles.

Main Feature Jacob Lowrey is a Chicago based comedian who travels throughout the Midwest. He hosts a weekly stand-up comedy show called Wet Cash which was recently featured in the Chicago Reader as a show to see each week. Jacob's comedy can be described as observational with a spritz of his absurd perspective. While not performing or traveling Jacob enjoys reading books about music, baseball, and spending time with his parrot.

Headliner Zach Peterson has been described as everything from “An affable oddball” to “if Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska album was a person.” This is because Zach writes jokes that have a unique mixture of thoughtfulness, absurdity and darkness, which can be heard on his recently recorded debut album “Midwestern Jokes for the Americas” that will be released early next year. When he is not crisscrossing the United States performing at clubs, theaters, and whereever else will have him, Zach makes his home in Chicago, IL where he produces and hosts the Arguments and Grievances Podcast that has been featured at numerous festivals, on Audible.com, named “Best Variety show in Chicago 2014”by Chicago Magazine and called by The Chicago Tribune, "smart, high-stakes tomfoolery disguised in a brilliant, faux-brainy conceit...This show is a riot." Zach has toured the country with the likes of Mary Mack, Dave Ross and Timmy Williams from The Whitest Kids you know, performing at festival like The Limestone Comedy Festival, The High Plains Comedy Festival, and The Laughing Skull Comedy festival among many more.
