Description: Standup comedy from Cracked.com
Adam Tod Brown
Adam Tod Brown: Adam Tod Brown is an editor and columnist at Cracked.com. He believes he can fly. He believes he can punch the sky. You have seen his work on websites all across this great land (Cracked.com, Playboy.com, The Smoking Jacket.com) and slightly fewer comedy clubs (Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, The Stand in NYC, a shitty open mic in Santa Rosa).
Dave Waite: Dave Waite’s oddball stories and rants have made him a favorite at clubs around the Midwest. A square peg who found happiness when he stopped trying to fit in, Dave's hilarious tales of personal failure have won the love of audiences young and old alike.
Although Dave is known for his constant grin, the first few years his post-college life didn't give him much to smile about. After graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in the lucrative field of geography, Dave drifted through a series of jobs ranging from call center representative to substitute teacher, experiences that later became a part of his act.
On his days as a substitute teacher, Dave says, "My kids 'would come up to me and say, 'Mr. Waite, you're going to die from smoking!' I was like, 'No, Timmy, more like drinking!'"
After being fired from nearly every job and having zero luck at finding love, Dave's self-esteem hit rock bottom in early 2004. His salvation came in the form of a newspaper ad for a stand-up comedy class at the Funny Bone in Newport, KY. Dave took the class and fell in love with stand-up, quickly gaining a reputation amongst both comedians and audiences as one of the Midwest's wittiest and most unpredictable young comics.
Josh Denny: Hailing from Philadelphia, Josh Denny displays a unique brand of comedy that can carry no label. Described by many veteran comic greats as having a "cartoon mind," you never know what you will get at one of his shows, whether a serious look at the ridiculous, or a totally ridiculous look at the serious. Combining the perfect blend of East Coast Grit and Midwest Wit, Josh's comedy is a hybrid both unique and genuine.
