Funny Noizes Productions is pleased to present one of the funniest and fastest-rising stars in stand-up comedy today when it presents A NIGHT OF COMEDY WITH JOE PONTILLO & FRIENDS on Thursday, May 9th at 8:00 PM at Jilly's Music Room.
Joe Pontillo was born ages ago and has been doing comedy for even longer. He has appeared on AXS TV's 'Gotham Comedy Live', MTV's 'The Middle Of The Night Show' and currently has a special on Amazon titled 'Delete Your Account' which came out in 2018. His jokes have appeared in Newsday, Timeout NY, The New York Times, and in the Washington Post. He has written and produced two films 'Street Of The Dead' and 'Hank Is Evil'.
Leslie Battle is a Texas native who began her comedy career after an ‘uncivilized’ divorce. She has performed since July 2011,on stages throughout the Midwest and beyond. In May 2015, she won the title of Columbus (Ohio's) Funniest Person in the Funnybone Talent Search. In July 2015, she won the Crackers Comedy Club Open Mic Contest in Indianapolis, IN. She began her Army career as an active duty medical laboratory technician (92B), a role she fulfilled for 13 years. After transferring to the Ohio National Guard, she went back to college, earned her bachelor's degree and earned a commission as a Communications Officer in 2006. During her military career, she was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA, Ft Knox, KY, Heidelberg, Germany and Camp Arifjan, Kuwait (to name a few). She retired in January 2015, after 26 total years of military service (13 active, 13 Ohio National Guard). Mother of 3 young adults, her humor includes stories from her life as a soldier, mom, and divorcee’ as well as observations about American Pop Culture. Leslie offers a unique perspective and says things that other people think fairly regularly, but aren’t quite comfortable with saying.
A friend once asked me, "When you started performing comedy, did you step out of your comfort zone?" I thought for a second and realized,
"No. I stepped into it."
Chris Ketler (aka The Bitter Dude) who 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.
and introducing Braylon Copeny, a 16 year old up and coming stand up comedian from Flint, Michigan. If you like Chris Rock you're going to love this kid. He uses teenage issues, video games, and social media habits to create a hilarious set of jokes.
Hosting the evening’s antics is the Master of Ceremonies, WNIR popular radio guru, Tom Cullison, the man with the golden voice (and hair).
