He had already been making family and classmates laugh and began writing jokes at age 12 and performing Stand-Up at age 16. He has toured the country from coast to coast since he was 21 years old. Tim is a regular at the Chicago Improv and has opened for comedy greats like Kevin Pollack and Louie Anderson. Tim has appeared on the HBO series "John from Cincinnati". While Tim has yet to receive his big break there is no doubt audiences consider him the favorite comedian on the bill. Soon he will be considered an over night success even though hes been paving his way for years.

A down to earth absurdist storyteller, Gideon relates oddities and eccentricities of life as well as fanciful impressionistic exaggerations of the world we live in. His stage presence and person is as wild, wacky, and friendly as his jokes are.
Ethan is the fastest rising comedian to hit the Iowa City scene this year! After becoming an Iowa City Yacht Club favorite he has performed in several showcases in town, including most recently at The Bluebird After Dark Comedy Showcase. A student at the university, he shares his cynical observations in a hilarious manner!
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!
