Main Feature Michael Meyers began doing stand-up comedy in Columbus, Ohio in 2010 and is currently based out of Chicago. He has taken his dry, deliberate sense of humor throughout the country to varying degrees of success. In 2015, Meyers released his first album entitled “No Don Draper” to varying degrees of acclaim. He was a feature performer at the 2018 Limestone Comedy Festival and currently runs a weekly stand up showcase in Chicago called High Dive. During a show in 2011, an audience member threw a lemon at him while he was on stage. His ongoing comedy goal is to never have another lemon thrown at him. His sets have been lemon-free since.
Headliner Joe McMahon is a darkly satirical, heavily improvisational, Florida bred and Chicago based stand up comedian. Most people think he's very funny. A few people probably do not, but such is the polarizing nature of true genius. And then there are some people who think he's just OK. McMahon failed to grow up in Florida but moved to Chicago anyway at the age of 22. Joe spent most of his 20s as a delinquent, not pursuing stand up until his best friend moved to Europe, leaving McMahon looking for new people to get drunk and be an ass around. After a couple years of doing well at open mics and booking independent shows around Chicago, Joe along with a few other young stand ups, two of which currently have better credits than him, started This Week's Show at the worst bar in Chicago's crappiest neighborhood. The show was well received. Six years into performing, McMahon has secured his reputation as a very good comedian who is extremely not famous. Joe McMahon is a regular at the Laugh Factory Chicago. He was one of a handful of comedians in the world hand picked to perform at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal as one of the festival's New Faces of Comedy, and previously was one of only 22 comedians throughout the country selected for the Big Sky Comedy Festival in 2017.
