About the Performers

Kevin McLain
Inspired by topical late night hosts and scathing insult comics, Kevin occupies a unique space in the DC comedy scene. A former-Republican-turned-practically-Communist potty-mouth, he has won crowds over with his hilarious allusions and references to gender, race, sexuality, class, and politics. He has described his style of comedy as "Imagine Trevor Noah...but as a big gay slut."

Christopher Hook
Chris Hook is a DC based comedian originally from Kentucky who finds humor in daily life. Forever a joiner, you can find him at his office book club, condo association, running club, alumni association chapter, or employee engagement groups whenever he's not glued to his couch watching television and wondering why he isn't training for a marathon.

Joyce Rebar
Joyce Rebar has been entertaining audiences in the DMV area for over 12 years. She has been accepted into many of the World Series of Comedy national competitions, and she also has performed in many of the Gaylarious shows that were held at the old Riot Act theater in DC. Her original stand-up training was at the DC Improv, and she has returned to the DC Improv Lounge for many shows. In addition, she has opened for Mimi Gonzalez and Jennie McNulty, in shows at Women's Week in Provincetown, MA; and she has organized informal shows on Olivia (lesbian) cruises, in which she has entertained many a lesbian traveler.

Laura Delhomme
Laura Delhomme explores being single and bi, when's the best time to get a 3rd cat, and when to break her parents' hearts with news of of all 3.

Shawn Fisher
Shawn is a multi-ethnic, disabled, queer senior citizen, and has the AARP card to prove it!

Rachel Antomattei
Rachel is a rising talent who performs storytelling and observational humor.

Shawn Banks
Shawn is an interactive storyteller, who dives into pop-culture and current events from the POV of a black, gay young man.

Maddox Pennington
MK Pennington is a nonbinary queer writer and comedian, and the author of A Girl Walks Into a Book: What the Brontes Taught Me About Life, Love, and Women's Work. They have performed all over the DMV including the Charm City Comedy Festival, DCAC, DC Drafthouse, DC Comedy Loft, Busboys and Poets, and many of DC's finest dive bars.

The Plumbers
