Tony Daniel started doing comedy on the back of his middle school bus in Rocky Mount, NC. He paid his dues getting kicked off the bus and spending many hours in detention until he became quite good at playing the DOZENS. He also learned comedic timing reciting jokes from the legends like Pryor, Dangerfield, Murphy and Robin Harris. He would use these jokes to overcome shyness and make new friends. This served him well once he joined the US NAVY and traveled the world. He started doing stand-up at Seattle Comedy Underground and he has been a crowd favorite from Hawaii to Florida. As US NAVY veteran he takes pride in performing for our NATION'S ARMED FORCES.

We're excited to welcome John Gardner!

We're excited to welcome Mike Coletta!
Mike Coletta is a Seattle based comedian born in Fairbanks, Alaska. He recently moved back to the Emerald City after starting comedy in the wheat-infested, cultural boomtown of Pullman, WA. There, Coletta cracked up college audiences in the Nuthouse Improv Comedy Troupe, where he performed and directed. Coletta connects with audiences through his quick wit, energetic delivery, and sometimes overwhelming niceness. His honest reaction to life experiences completely envelops his comedy and emits a fun, passionate disposition to audiences. Coletta was a finalist in the Make Jack Laugh Comedy Competition and Portland Comedy Contest. He recently performed at The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Emerald City Comicon and Bumbershoot. He regularly hosts and features at shows all over the Northwest. Also, he really likes hugs.
We're excited to welcome Sarah Skilling!
A native Seattleite, Sarah Skilling has been engaging with crowds for over 6 years, inviting them into her wild imagination and taking them onto a trip of absurd observations and honest confessions. No topic is off-limits and you will leave her show feeling like an old friendwhether you want to or not. There is never a dull moment.
Sarah has performed all over the West Coast, from Seattle to San Diego, has had her photo appear on "Rock Center with Brian Williams," has produced several comedy shows including " The Muffintop Monologues, " "Wine Shots: Comedy's Happiest Hour" and the always fun (but now closed) "Laughs at the Lounge."

We're excited to welcome Travis Simmons!
In a quest to make a difference, some people hug trees, others run for political officebut this dynamic 6' 7" man skipped the election and decided to dedicate his life to making people laugh by being honest, telling the truth, and sprinkling in an impression or two. He is one of the good guys, dedicated to comedy for the sake of people.
Travis Simmons was born thinking too hard about the world around him. Now he's grown up to tell audiences across the nation what he thinks about that same world. Lucky for us, he's one funny fella!

The Columbia City Theater's History
"The Columbia City Theater boasts one of the most beautiful settings for live music and performance in Seattle. The theater reopened on June 25th, 2010 to rave reviews and was featured in Seattle Weekly's "Best of Seattle" list after being open for less than two months. It has since been dubbed "The city's finest sounding room," by SPIN Magazine.
The Columbia City Theater was built in 1917 and is the oldest vaudeville theater in the state of Washington. Having played a major role in the Seattle Jazz boom in the 40s, the theater played host to the likes of Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Fats Waller. During the 50s the theater served as a neighborhood movie theater (pictured above), where neighborhood residents have recalled attending Saturday morning movies for kids such as Flash Gordon and the Our Gang series. During the 60s, the theater began hosting live events once more and is one of the first venues to host the legendary Jimi Hendrix.
During the early 80s, the theater was a home to much of the DIY punk movement and the touring networks that were created to support it. It has since been an art commune, and a place that specifically hosted raves in more recent years under the name "The Lish House".
