Comedy Night at the Bridge!
Zach Funk (Host)- Zach Funk wants you to know it is ok to be human. He brings to the stage jokes and stories about topics like mental health, navigating life and being an over active thinker in an under thinking world. Combining equal parts heart and nerdiness Funk hopes that after seeing him perform youve not only laughed but also feel a little less alone in the universe. His first album, Brains Are Weird, was recorded and released in 2019.
Georgia Warder - After moonlighting as a straight person for 18 years in her home state of West Virginia, Georgia Warder crawled out of the closet, snuck across the Mason-Dixon Line, and found her comedic voice in Pittsburgh, PA. Her love for stand up began when she realized there was an art form built around oversharing to strangers. Her friends, family, and Uber drivers are beyond grateful she found this creative outlet.
