Jimmy has been seen on Comedy Central, HBO, MTV, ESPN2 and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
Mike Preston (Co-Headliner): As a Comic, Author & Talk Show Host, Mike gives his slightly damaged take on things, Mike has worked comedy clubs and sordid one nighters from coast to coast, and made several TV appearances, including SHOWTIME'S COMEDY CLUB, and NBC'S FRIDAY NIGHT. For his first two novels, THE MORON CHRONICLES and RETURN OF THE MORON, Preston drew on his years in Social Work to produce a "politically incorrect, yet essentially accurate" portrayal of alcoholism, mental illness, and life on the street.
Sarah Manning: (Feature Act) Chicago comic Sarah Manning has a very goofy and quirky style of stand-up, often breaking into characters and songs. She performs throughout Chicago and also tours nationally. Her hobbies include playing guitar, painting, drawing and running- especially when rent is due.
Peter Lipsey (Host & Emcee): Touted as the 87th funniest comedian in the country and belting out jokes for the last 29 years, Peters premise, set-up and punch one-liner delivery leaves his intelligent, literate and sharp audiences laughing well after the show is over.
