Funny Noizes Productions is pleased to announce the return to Ohio of one of the funniest and fastest-rising stars in stand-up comedy today when it presents A NIGHT OF COMEDY WITH CHRIS DAMEN & FRIENDS on Valentine's Day Thursday, February 14 at 8:00 PM at Jilly's Music Room.
Headliner Chris Damen, an avid Chicago Blackhawks fan, has traveled to perform to audiences from Chicago to New York and as far as Vancouver BC and places in-between. His dark, personal and intelligent narrative has delighted audiences at comedy festivals around the country. When Chris is not on the road he can be seen throughout Chicago at his eclectic, unflinchingly funny comedy game show called "Death Metal Geography Teacher". It can best be described as "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" meets "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego" at your worst day in a community college geography classroom.
Featured act Bill Gevirtz lives in Chicago and is a regular at the Laugh Factory Comedy Club, Zanies Comedy Club and a host of other clubs and venues throughout the Chicago area where he brings the laughs on a nightly basis. According to the Chicago Tribune, "Comedian Bill Gevirtz is cranking out sly one-liners like he’s wielding a machine gun full of them."
FNP's own Chris Ketler (aka The Bitter Dude) draws from a topsy-turvy life with humor that is easy to relate to and, in the process, funny as hell. Although Ketler is the first to say that his life isn’t quite so bitter nowadays, thanks to the fact that in little more than three years, he’s created a name for himself with recent appearances throughout Ohio, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, New York City and Orlando. In addition to his work as a comedian and comedy producer, Ketler is an actor, who stars in the upcoming television series, “Below Average Joe.” He also recently wrapped production on Amazon Prime’s crime family drama, “Mafia Ties.” Ketler can also be seen in major films like “White Boy Rick,” starring Mathew McConaughey, “Embrace The Twilight,” and the newly-released “Anhedonia,” starring The Walking Dead’s Emily Kinney.
Opening our show tonight is Vince Pirelli, actor, comedian, dancer, and YouTube personality. He has been featured in movies, musicals, and music videos. Vince is currently cast in a theatre production of Tony and Tina's wedding. His comedic style draws attention to ridiculous behavior and societal norms. Pirelli lists Bill Burr, Jerry Seinfeld, Lewis Black, and Sebastian Maniscalco as his comedic influences. You can view Pirelli's content on his YouTube channel Real Life Interactions or on his Instagram @alwaysmint908
Hosting the evening’s antics is the Master of Ceremonies, WNIR popular radio guru, Tom Cullison, the man with the golden voice (and hair).
