Dwayne Gill

AUG 20 / 8 PM
featuring Paul Piziks

Marine, A Cop and A Comic! Dwayne Gill is a triple threat! Feeling his career as a police officer was way too serious for someone considered funny since birth; Dwayne found an outlet for his humor when he first stepped onto a comedy stage at the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase in 1993. After only two performances, he joined the ranks of professional comedians with his first paid booking at Gadzooks Comedy Club.

Vince Carone

SEP 3 / 8 PM
featuring Kara Coraci 

Vince Carone isn’t the type of person to sit back and wait for fame to find him. For 19 years, this Chicago based comedian has been in the comedy trenches, touring the Midwest and beyond.  He has played every club, one-nighter, bar, restaurant and Moose lodge within a 500 mile radius of the Windy City and he’s got the scars to prove it.  He’s taken his lumps, smiled and asked for more. He developed a powerful stage presence and material that kills in all environments.  He became a laugh-making machine with no contemporary equal.

Content is PG-13 – Viewer discretion is advised. Cash Bar Available.

Norm Stulz

SEP 17 / 8 PM
featuring Derek Graff

Norm Stulz started his professional comedy life at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle in Detroit back in 1981 and has gone on to become the industry’s premier comic story teller. Truth is always funnier than fiction and no one can tell the truth more humorously than Norm Stulz, whether it is material about raising three children, or funny stories about his childhood sweetheart and now wife Sharon Marie.
