Laughter for the Best Medicine w/ Stewart Huff

Laughter for the Best Medicine w/ Stewart Huff

As many of you may already know, Caitlin Deane was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of stage 4 cervical cancer.

Caitlin is someone who constantly emanates positivity and joy. Those of you who know her know that she actively makes the lives of anyone in her radius more rich and meaningful. Her friendly, outgoing disposition, coupled with her strong personality and zest for living life to its fullest potential are traits that will allow her to persevere in her fight.

There aren’t many of us who haven’t been touched in some way by cancer. Those with great support systems still feel alone. Those with the best insurance still accrue steep bills. Caitlin will not be immune to either. 

And although we have full faith in Caitlin to beat this thing, we need your help. And while laughter may be the best medicine, donations are very helpful as well. So why not do both at the same time and come to a great show for a much greater cause? All proceeds from ticket sales will go directly towards Caitlin’s treatment.

The Headliner for the Evening is Stewart Huff
Stewart Huff was born in Campbellsville, Kentucky and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has been performing comedy for over 20 years, beginning when he decided to drop out of college to become a writer. Currently touring theatres, comedy clubs and anything in between across the country, Huff reaches past the norm for his genuine — and genuinely unexpected — comedy. His knack for embracing the foibles of humanity and his refreshing originality make him as likeable as he is hilarious. A storyteller at heart, Huff continues to amaze with his clever material and personal wit.

Huff has performed in comedy clubs nationally and internationally, including the Improv in Los Angeles and New York, the Punchline in Atlanta and the Funny Bone in Omaha, as well as countless others.

A finalist in the 2006 Boston Comedy Festival, Huff was also invited to perform in the HBO Las Vegas Festival, where his act can be viewed on pay-per-view. Stewart was also the 2016 Critics Choice of the Best Comedy at the Orlando Fringe Festival.

He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his girlfriend. There he drops off the various items he collects while on the road, including an antique barber chair, countless vintage photographs, and an extensive collection of LP’s. She likes this.

Bombs Away! Comedy Presents: Sean Finnerty

Bombs Away! Comedy is back with another great show at Listermann Brewing Company. Cincinnati has a strong tradition of brewing and comedy, and BA! Comedy bridges those two worlds by bringing nationally touring comedians to the best breweries and craft beer bars in Cincinnati. This month we are proud to present Sean Finnerty

After 21 years of “growing up” in Longford, Ireland, Sean Finnerty decided to move stateside where a series of mature decisions that he failed to make led him to stand up comedy. Sean first cut his teeth in the Orlando comedy scene and quickly learned that his no holds barred humor and charming accent were well received (when people could actually understand what he was saying).

Selected for Comedy Central’s Up Next competition and as a semi-finalist in both the 2014 Florida’s Funniest Comedian Competition and the 2014 Charleston Comedy Festival, Sean has been seen at comedy clubs and festivals across the Southeast, including The Improv, the Orlando Fringe Festival, the Orlando Indie Comedy Festival, and at Gringos Locos Tacos at 3 in the morning after a night out. He has worked alongside touring headliners such as Dan Cummins, Mick Foley, Tommy Johnagin, Shane Mauss, Sean Patton, Rich Vos, Bobby Slayton, Mark Normand, Joe List, Maronzio Vance, Ben Kronberg, and Dustin Diamond.

Born and raised in Ireland, comedian Sean Finnerty offers a unique perspective on everyday life. A finalist at the 2014 Florida’s Funniest Comedian Competition and the 2014 Charleston Comedy Festival, Finnerty brings his brash, unapologetic and distinctive perspective to the Dog and Bone British Pub this weekend…

Logan was a "Rookie of the Year" nominee in The Comedy Store Roast Battle's Roastie Awards, and she was a Comic of the Week on the "Jackie & Laurie Show" podcast. Since the job of stand-up comedian only fills her evenings, Logan spends her days orchestrating and carrying out weird pranks. Her prank on Yogurtland (a West Coast frozen yogurt chain) appeared on CBS Local News, and her prank on Del Taco (a West coast equivalent to Taco Bell) went viral-ish on Twitter.

Bombs Away! Comedy Presents: Jay Armstrong

Bombs Away! Comedy is back with another great show at Listermann Brewing Company. Cincinnati has a strong tradition of brewing and comedy, and BA! Comedy bridges those two worlds by bringing nationally touring comedians to the best breweries and craft beer bars in Cincinnati. This month we are proud to present Jay Armstrong or Jay Armstrong (which ever isn't in Facebook Jail)!

Jay was a child who was always told he had a lot of "potential" and spent most of his early years in school in gifted programs for genius kids. At 16 he discovered heroin and spent the next 9 years struggling with addiction, homelessness, and even served a little time in prison on drug charges. In 2005 he went to rehab and since has been the quintessential story of redemption and recovery. 

Once Jay worked up the courage to follow his dreams of comedy he was hooked and comedy quickly became his new addiction. From observations of the world he has a general distaste for to accounts from his personal experiences there is a little something for everyone. Jay travels the country performing at comedy clubs, recovery events and even a prison here and there. In 2014 he recorded his first comedy album which can be heard on Pandora Internet Radio. Jay has had the honor of performing at some historic venues, working with some of his comedy idols, and has performed at various comedy and music festivals.

Monica Nevi is a native of Washington State, having grown up about 20 minutes south of Seattle. A collegiate basketball player, after injuries ended her career she decided to move forward with the other thing people love that women do pursue her strong interest in stand-up comedy. Years later, Monica has had the privilege of performing in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Seattle International Comedy Competition as well as an hour solo show at the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival. She has been seen on ESPN's Sports Center, FOX’s nationally syndicated Laughs TV Show and Seattle TV shows New Day Northwest and [the 206].

Mitch is a Marine Corps Veteran that served in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. He then started a career in manufacturing before realizing that it sucked. Now, Mitch has found his true calling in acting silly on a stage in front of strangers on a nightly basis.

Chris Siemer has affectionately been described as the Midwest’s most endearing moral degenerate, but if you ask him, he's just misunderstood. With stories and musings from his own misfortune and woe, Chris tells it like he sees it with vivid imagery and little, to no, apologies. With appearances at Cincy Brew Ha Ha, Arch City Comedy Festival, Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival, and being selected to be a feature performer at the Crossroads Comedy Festival, Chris has been making an impression in the Midwest Standup Scene.

This Month we are proud to present Future Science!

Future Science is a live multimedia sketch comedy show written and performed by comedians Karl Spaeth, Logan Lautzenheiser, Wayne Memmott, and Chris Weir. 

Not only are we the BEST Science-based multimedia live sketch comedy show in the world, we're also the ONLY Science-based multimedia live sketch comedy show in the world (probably). But we're not taking our #1 slot lightly!

While the science may be fake, the humor is all real (technically this cannot be tested and therefore cannot be disproved. We dare you to try). The shows are designed to not only make you think, but also make you think about laughing. But you'll probably be too busy laughing to even think much about any of that at all. 

"Future Science is a hilarious trip through everything from love to crime, teaching us what we never knew we didn't know." - Geoff Tate (Doug Loves Movies, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson)

"I had the opportunity to catch Future Science when I was doing shows in Cincinnati, and I love it! Funny from top to bottom, and constantly inventive and fresh. Four and a half stars! I only withhold that half-star because no one gave me any nachos, or even asked if I wanted them. For shame." - Adam Cayton-Holland (Those Who Can't (TruTV), Conan, @midnight)

We're working on the nachos thing.

Reena Calm is an East Coast Jew turned Chicago favorite, and one of the most respected and requested comedians in the Midwest.

Comedy bridges those two worlds by bringing nationally touring comedians to the best breweries and craft beer bars in Cincinnati. This month we are proud to present Luke Capasso!


Luke mainly does comedy, or at least what he thinks comedy is. 

He is a storyteller, political satirist with the willingness to venture into the absurd, Luke Capasso approaches comedy head on and full speed ahead. Celebrating the humor that he finds most true to himself; Capasso’s personal tales of triumph and utter defeat are decorated with sarcasm, embellishment or what may otherwise be known as lies. With his deadpan style, Capasso’s jokes and stories encompass the trials of life as a young father, his years in the military, love, the inevitable loss and his small town American roots. Luke kick­started his career in the London and UK circuits and after completing his 4th solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival he is back performing in the good ‘ol US of A. 

In his first year of comedy Luke won the London Comedy Store’s Gong Show and was a finalist in the Laughing Horse New Act of Year, Amused Moose New Act of the Year, and the Romford New Act of Year competitions. 

Luke also writes and creates a wide variety of video content. With subjects ranging from historical mocumentaries, film reviews, and just surreal nonsense.

He is currently working on a couple other TV projects not worth mentioning just in case they don’t air. 

PRESS

“Fearless. He is phenomenal. A powerhouse….Brave and brutally funny.” Kate Copstick The Scotsman

“Equal parts terrifying and brilliant.” Rob Cureton Orful Comics

This Month we are proud to present Mike Cronin!

Comedian Mike “Meat” Cronin is a self-deprecating guy’s guy who happens to also be a fantastic writer with a truly original voice. Mike spent several years honing his craft at clubs and colleges near his hometown of Cincinnati before relocating to Chicago, where he hosts the popular showcase, “Best Night Ever.” Mike performed at the inaugural Limestone Comedy Festival and has opened for Bo Burnham, Tommy Johnagin, and Tom Segura. 

When their schedules permit, Mike and a rotating group of his closest friends in stand-up tour nontraditional venues as the Best Buds of Comedy. Along with Best Buds tourmate and frequent collaborator Alex Stone, Mike co-wrote and co-directed the music video for “The Hipster Song,” which has been viewed over 900,000 times on YouTube.

After attending one of Mike’s live shows, the New Times Broward-Palm Beach raved that his “testosterone-friendly jokes about beards, lazy masturbation, and sh**ting his pants were presented so deftly, he even had the ladies laughing.” Mike is pretty sure that was meant a compliment. 

He is currently on the road to support his debut album “Hot For Too Long” (Rooftop Comedy Records), which premiered in the top five of iTunes’ comedy album charts.

Bombs Away! Comedy Presents: Joe Shelby

Bombs Away! Comedy is back with another great show at Listermann Brewing Company. Cincinnati has a strong tradition of brewing and comedy, and BA! Comedy bridges those two worlds by bringing nationally touring comedians to the best breweries and craft beer bars in Cincinnati. This month we are proud to present Joe Shelby!

Joe Shelby is an author, actor, and stand-up comedian who got his start at Go Bananas Comedy Club in 2004. His boundary-pushing style is a blend of one-liners, act-outs, and experimental humor that connects with audiences everywhere. A year after his big start, he braved the cold winds of Chicago to study improv at places such as: The Second City, iO, The Annoyance Theater and Columbia College Chicago, where he majored in acting. In 2009 Shelby's fan base grew as the Chicago Reader voted him "Reader's Choice Best Comedian."

After falling on some rough times and personal issues, he moved back to Cincinnati the following year where Shelby was burdened by the stigma of his mental health. Losing his mind proved to be an accomplishment for him as he triumphed through his depression and was able to take his comedy to unfathomably creative places. His new found sense of self led him to appear at The Great American Comedy Festival and Cincinnati's Brew Haha Comedy Fest.

In 2014 Joe set off on another adventure moving into his van and toured across the country where he was soon swept up by Hollywood. Making his mark in the LaLa land, he has since been seen in GQ, VH1, The Huffington Post, Buzzfeed and over 8,921 photobombs. Learning from his own struggles, Joe runs a monthly comedy show at the Los Angeles Theater Center where 100% of all proceeds go towards aiding the less fortunate of Skid Row. At this very moment, he is eating cheese.

This month we are celebrating our 8th Anniversary of producing comedy shows and open-mics all over Cincinnati. This show is so big we are moving it to the BREW HAUS! Come laugh were the beer is made. We have a stacked lineup of local comics, fun events and prizes, and headliner Mike Recine

Mike was our first headliner of our revamped Bombs Away! team, and we are very excited to bring him back for our Anniversary.

Mike Recine is either the smartest dumb guy or the dumbest smart guy in the room. He’s performed stand-up on Conan, written for the MTV Video Music Awards, performed as a New Face in the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, and been nominated for Time Out New York’s Joke of the Year. Since his first open mic as a teenager in Jersey, he’s performed at nearly every comedy venue in NYC, blending observation and personal storytelling with a pitch-perfect dark wit. Catch him live across NYC to see one of the only guys Brooklyn hipsters and Jersey slobs can agree on.

Bombs Away! Comedy Presents: Chris Siemer

Bombs Away! Comedy is back with another great show at Listermann Brewing Company. Cincinnati has a strong tradition of brewing and comedy, and BA! Comedy bridges those two worlds by bringing nationally touring comedians to the best breweries and craft beer bars in Cincinnati. This month we are proud to present Chris Siemer!

Chris Siemer has affectionately been described as the Midwest’s most endearing moral degenerate, but if you ask him, he's just misunderstood. With stories and musings from his own misfortune and woe, Chris tells it like he sees it with vivid imagery and little, to no, apologies. With appearances at Cincy Brew Ha Ha, Arch City Comedy Festival, Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival, and being selected to be a feature performer at the Crossroads Comedy Festival, Chris has been making an impression in the Midwest Standup Scene. 

Doors open at 8, show starts at 9. Tickets at $5.
Purchasing tickets on Cincyticket.com guarantees entrance, but seating is first come, first serve.

He regularly posts van life tips online at #JoshCocksVanDamn. He’s a regular at several midwest clubs such as The Jukebox in Peoria, Skyline in Appleton, and The Laugh Factory in Chicago. He has been featured at The Limestone Comedy Festival, Arch City Comedy Festival, Laughing Derby Comedy Festival and Cincinnati's BrewHAHA Comedy Festival.
