Grit City's June Summer Showcase
Come out and help Grit City Celebrate it's 2nd Anniversary with our June Showcase!

Your comics for the weekend!

Ed Hill  Originally from Taiwan, Ed is an emerging young comic who moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 18 years ago, thinking he was on vacation at his father's discretion.

Since then, Ed has performed all over the world.  He has appeared on Bite TV's "Stand Up & Bite Me", XM Radio's "laugh Attack" and Comedy Time TV.  He was also invited to perform at Comedy Masala in Singapore, Live Comedy Club in Taiwan, the Hong Kong Comedy Festival, San Francisco Comedy Festival, North Carolina Arts Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, the Vancouver Comedy Festival and many more.

Ed is currently on vacation with his potato-like dogs.  www.kingedhill.com



Nigel Larson  A few years ago, Nigel Larson was nothing more than a single, unemployed college dropout living in his parents' basement.  This seemed to him the perfect time to start a career in stand-up comedy and it was.  He was quickly recognized in his first year by the Rochester Metromix paper, Insider, as one of the funniest and most active comics in the Western New York region.  He was named one of the "top 5 funniest comics in Rochester under 30 in 2008 and then was on the cover as "the face of Rochester comedy" in 2010.  Just as quickly Nigel realized that if he wanted to make more than $500 a year doing stand-up he would have to move.  So with lofty goals of doubling that annual income, he left the safety and security of his parents' basement for the safety and security of his grandparents' basement in Tacoma, WA.

Nigel takes the stage with a jovial demeanor and instant likability.  At first playing on his innocent appearance to establish a rapport with the audience he then quickly reveals that beneath his boyish good looks lies a cuttingly clever wit. His act is largely autobiographical, turning a lifetime of failure into consistent on-stage success with honest stories and sophisticated material.



Marianne Reilly  A native of Washington State, Marianne is a comic with a unique take on day-to-day life.  Raised in the backwoods of Washington, she moved to Seattle when she was 17, causing a drastic, but good change of perspective that gives her a wide range of appeal to audiences of any sex, race or background.

Because of the strange and sometimes difficult circumstances she has encountered in her life, this single mother of two has honed her defense mechanisms by finding the humor in any given situation.  While Marianne's original life-goal of becoming a sex therapist did not pan out, she continues to entertain audiences in a variety of different venues across the country.  She pushes the envelope with her smart, relatable brand of comedy and proves that strong women can carry a full set of baggage without breaking a sweat.



Collin Williams  Born into a biracial family, Collin quickly realized he had to embrace diversity or go crazy. Choosing the former (the jury's still out on the crazy part), he learned to make fun of his differences while developing a unique brand of standup. Collin's clean (yet slightly dark*) humor manages to artfully touch on areas usually considered taboo without becoming dirty or offensive, letting him cover topics that most are afraid to tackle.
Since hitting his first open mic at Seattle's Comedy Underground when he was barely 17, Collin has come a long way. He has played all over the West from comedy clubs to colleges and even a stadium. His humor proves irresistible to audiences, earning him a nomination as one of Utah's top comedians and various other accolades. Catch this rising young star so that one day, you can look back and say "I saw that guy before they found out he was just plain crazy".
