Bombs Away! Comedy

Bombs Away! Comedy was started by Chandler Dethy and Josh Mattie, two non-comics, in 2010 with one goal; bring top-quality stand up comedy to great venues in Cincinnati.  With a DIY mind-set, Josh and Chandler gathered a group of comics and supporters to produce the unique, fun comedy shows that this city needed.  From open mic nights, to premier comedy showcases, to the Cinema Toast Crunch movie-riffing shows, Bombs Away has been committed to bringing the best independent comedy to the people for an affordable price.

Committed to producing high-quality comedy shows with the Nation's best touring comedians and our Cincinnati favorites. Cincinnati has a strong tradition of both Beer and Comedy, and we strive to bridge both using Cincinnati's best breweries and bars as venues for our shows. We pride ourselves in producing professional comedy shows in unconventional venues.

In it's current form, Bombs Away! Comedy is run by Wayne Memmott, Kelly Horan, Andrew Rudick, Mike Hilinski, Lee Kimbrell, and Chris Siemer.  Their current course has taken them to seeking out great breweries with great rooms that can be transformed into a comedy room.  With a blossoming brewery scene in Cincinnati, the BA! team has decided to find interesting audiences at interesting venues.  Their goal is to connect the rich histories of comedy and beer in Cincinnati to create a trusted brand with top quality comedy shows as well as foster new comics as they find their way.
