Blue Moose Comedy Showcase

Daniel Frana

Daniel Frana is a comic originally from the backwood hills of Northeast Iowa. Due to an overactive pineal gland Daniel spreads lampoonery with good cheer everywhere he goes. You may have seen him at the Yacht Club in Iowa City, The Establishment Theater in Rock Island, The Wonder Bar in Chicago, or as a finalist in both the Funniest Iowan and IC4 Comedy Competitions. He's worked with comedians such as Tim Sullivan, Tom Sharpe, Jessi Campbell, and Brooks Wheelan. Come out and see why this young pup is one of the best up-and-coming Midwest comedians!

Bobby Ray Bunch

Bobby Ray Bunch is a decorated United States Air Force veteran who quickly found his way into stand-up comedy after his completion of service. BRB has immediately become a well-known comedian to all his stuffed animals and has many fan(s). He hosts his own monthly comedy showcase at The Mill in Iowa City and has performed at around the Midwest at comedy clubs, theatres, casinos, universities, festivals, competitions and bars. BRB has been lucky enough to share the stage with comedians such as: Todd Barry, The Beards of Comedy, Scott Long, Greg Warren, Tom Sharpe, and Last Comic Standing winner Josh Blue. Although BRB is a ginger who cries in the shower, his act is a must see and leaves audiences *laughing!

*Crowds subject to pointing and laughing and usually not laughing at all.

Kristy Hartsgrove

Kristy Hartsgrove Mooers is so excited to be back at the Blue Moose Comedy Showcase! She recently performed at the Cabin Fever Comedy Festival in Mt. Vernon, Iowa. She was also an opening act for the Bomb Shelter Comedy Road Show when they performed in Iowa City, and she performed at the very first Blue Moose Comedy Showcase. Incidentally, she also came in second at the INK! Performance Slam Open Mike Competition in Cedar Falls, but please don't let jealousy dampen your enjoyment of the program. Let's be friends.

A.J. Grill

A.J. Grill is a 21 year old "human" born in the gutters of Des Moines, Iowa. Raised by a congress of nomadic baboons, he grew up with a fascination and taste for insects of all varieties. He began his stand-up comedy stylings performing for the rocks in his backyard, but gradually worked his way into telling jokes to living creatures. You may have been lucky enough to see him perform at venues such as the Yacht club and Public Space One in Iowa City, Penguins Comedy Club in Cedar Rapids and House of Bricks in Des Moines. A.J.’s brand of comedy is ‘undefined’ just like the gender on his birth certificate, so come out to see what all the fuss is about this up and coming comedian.

Andrew King

Andrew King has been performing and writing comedy since 2009. Known for his sharp & biting wit- Andrew has massaged the minds of audiences all across the Midwest. As a debut member of the comedy troupe "The Blacklist" he helped grow the company to what it is today, cultivating a loyal audience and consistently selling out shows in a little over one year. Whether hosting, opening, or headlining- Andrew is a favorite among intellectuals, pseudo-intellectuals, and individuals with really tight pants.

Megan Gogerty

Hailed by the Chicago Reader as "blonde-haired" and "blue-eyed," Megan Gogerty is "a woman." Megan likes pineapple on pizza. Her favorite color used to be red but is now turquoise, which represents a general mellowing of her temperament. She has an extensive but by no means definitive collection of Dolly Parton albums; a charming personality; a washtub bass, which she plays when provoked; a great fondness for Tina Fey, Chris Rock, and other great thinkers of our time. Megan is a monologuist, songwriter, and standup comedian who has written two plays, Feet First in the Water With a Baby in My Teeth and the award winning Hillary Clinton Got Me Pregnant. She also does an amazing Ke$ha impression.
