Geoffrey Asmus - Geoffrey Asmus began performing stand-up in 2013 immediately after wasting $143,548 on four college degrees. Within a short time, Geoffrey won Comedy on State’s “Funniest Person in Madison 2015” and Penguin Comedy Club’s “Funniest Person in Iowa 2015,” both times beating out the guy who invented meth, Quentin.
Soon after Geoffrey was selected as a ‘New Face’ at Just For Laughs in Montreal and performed on FOX’s ‘Laughs’ and Kevin Hart’s LOL Network. Geoffrey has opened for Brian Posehn, Aparna Nancherla, Todd Barry, and Daniel Sloss among others.
Offstage Geoffrey has written for College Humor, Splitsider, and the sketch group Mean Squad.
But no matter where he performs Geoffrey never makes eye contact, which is a blessing for all.
Lael O'Shaugnassey - Lael O'Shaughnessy is a Chicago based stand-up comedian and writer. Lael's candid brand of humor and energetic stage presence has made her a regular at the Laugh Factory, the Comedy Bar, and Comedy on State. Along with performing regularly around Chicago, Lael was also selected as one of the New Faces at Just for Laughs in Montreal. Lael got her start at The Drop Comedy Club in South Bend, IN, Indiana’s best comedy club located next to the local jailhouse.
Maddie Wiener - Maddie Wiener has opened for Dave Attell, Nikki Glaser, Joe List, Rich Vos, and others. She has appeared on Sirius XM Radio’s RawDog Comedy, was a 2018 semi-finalist for Stand-Up NBC, performed in the 2019 Limestone Comedy Festival, and is a regular at Goodnights Comedy Club and Dead Crow Comedy Room in her home state of North Carolina, as well as at The Comedy Bar and The Laugh Factory where she attends school in Chicago.
Charlie Kojis - Charlie Kojis has been performing stand-up comedy since 2014, during which time he has been described as “this generation’s Charlie Kojis.” Combining his life experiences and general fears, Charlie blends traditional joke-telling with his own personal narrative. His dry delivery leaves audiences both laughing and wondering if he is as okay as he pretends to be. Based in Madison WI, Charlie performs throughout the Midwest and has opened for comedians who include Tig Notaro, Gary Gulman, and Michael Che. He was the winner of Madison's Funniest Comic Competition at Comedy on State in 2016.
Sohrab Forouzesh - Sohrab Forouzesh is a Chicago based comedian and writer who won't take it personally if you say his name wrong. He moved to the U.S from Iran when he was just eight years old, and his material is heavily influenced by his experiences as a fat Persian kid growing up in America. His rapid-fire delivery paired with his down to earth reliability is what makes him a favorite of the local Chicago comedy scene. He was recently named a finalist for StandUP NBC, and he’s also a regular at the world famous Laugh Factory, Comedy Bar, and Zanies Comedy Club.
