A top act from the Chicago market, Pat McGann is the host and creator of the Emmy-nominated 'The Chicago Stand Up Project,' and has recently appeared on both 'The Late Show with David Letterman' & 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.' He's been invited to perform at 'The Great American Comedy Festival,' 'Gilda's Laugh Fest' and the Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards. His observational humor and quick wit are entertaining audiences across the country and making him one of the fastest-rising stars from the Midwest.
It was 1999, six years after finishing his collegiate basketball career at Division III Whitewater College, and bouncing around jobs that Kevin found himself in the real world with no real job skills and a strong desire to work an hour a day. What to do? Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Kevin decided to head over to nearby Madison, WI and try the “Open-Mic Night”. “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and lets be honest I had nothing better going on”.
Thirteen years later Kevin is still going on-stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements. “For an hour a night I’m wildly successful”. With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country. In 2000 he was the winner of the Midwest region of the HBO “Comedy Competition” and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist. He performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” in 2003, and finished 2nd in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005. He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010. This past summer he co-starred in the Indie film “Flat Chested” starring Alicia Witt and Luke Perry.
He currently resides in Chicago.
Rob Sherwood was born in New York and is presently living in Las Vegas. He has been doing standup for ten years and has developed a charismatic stage presence that captivates audiences locally as well as those on the road.
A variety of life experiences have given the comic material to draw from for his act. Playing music was Rob’s first show business love. He is an accomplished drummer and joined his first band at the age of 11. Rob also spent many years behind the scenes as a light and sound technician. His likeability, talent, and humor made him a favorite with coworkers and stars alike. The backstage experience has given him a unique comedic insight to show business on the Las Vegas Strip. The lighter side of Las Vegas culture (aka. smoking, drinking, and gambling) is explored on stage and appeals to folks all over the country.
Rob is married with four children in all shapes and sizes. He easily relates to the audience with his family material. The audience laughs at him, with him, and most importantly at themselves as well. The comedian always has an opinion on topical issues and current events. His twisted viewpoints are entertaining and popular with all ages. Rob Sherwood loves performing before live audiences and the audience loves his performance.
Rob is also currently the host of the syndicated radio show, Coast to Coast from Las Vegas. The talk show offers a variety of sports professionals, comedians, and a wide range of entertainers, whose conversations attract male
and female listeners alike. Coast to Coast with Rob Sherwood and his easy conversation is both a hit with guests and his audience. Rob Sherwood, sports, and entertainment, it’s a beautiful combination.
