About this event
The DC Metro area's funniest and most entertaining comedians are coming to entertain you!
Ray Jubela grew up idolizing George Carlin, and dreamed that one day he would be on stage bringing the laughter. While that dream was not realized until he was in his late 40s, he has made up for lost time by being to be one the hardest working comics in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. Ray is a big guy with a big heart, and an even bigger body! He has appeared at the DC Improv, Magooby's Joke House (Baltimore), Broadway Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Greenwich Village Comedy Club, Hyena’s Comedy Club (Fort Worth, TX), Wiley’s Comedy Club (Dayton, OH), Alchemy Comedy Theater (Greenville, SC), Church of Satire Comedy Club (Hanover, PA), 5th Borough Comedy Festival (NYC), Finger Lakes Comedy Festival (NY), and New South Comedy Festival (SC). Ray also co-hosts the Two Joke Minimum Podcast, currently in season 3, which can be heard weekly on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Amazon Music and at www.twojokeminimumpodcast.com.
Sam Cobb was inspired by the brilliance of comedians such as Kevin Hart, Dave Chappelle and Michael Che. He realized then that he truly aspired to follow in their footsteps, and that making people laugh is what makes him feel happy and complete. He began following his dream immediately after graduating, and has since become a fixture of the Metro Washington comedy scene. Sam has developed a style and comedy content that will show you a unique and hilarious view of the world. Venues Sam has played include the DC Drafthouse, Church Of Satire Comedy Club (Hanover, PA), The Grisly Pear (NYC) and The PIT Theater (NYC)
Steve Tracy honed his craft working on the Baltimore, Maryland comedy scene. His time as a comic in Charm City has enabled Steve to use his sharp mind and quick wit to craft well-conceived, hilarious jokes, as well as develop his own unique style of interacting with audiences. Steve’s material reflects his experience with relationships, family, friends, and the world around us. Steve has performed at Magooby’s Joke House (Baltimore), DC Comedy Loft, Wiley’s Comedy Club (Dayton), Harrisburg Comedy Zone (PA), The Grisly Pear (NYC) and The PIT Theater (NYC). Steve is the co-host of the Two Joke Minimum Podcast, currently in season 3, which can be heard weekly on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Amazon Music.
Brandon "Hoot" Fuson is based out of the Church of Satire Comedy Club in Hanover, PA. With an uncanny balance of both self and societal awareness, audiences find this brand of Satire to be relatable, hilarious, repulsive, and righteous from start to finish. A mutt of Smoky and Appalachian mountain blood, Hoot brings his rural upbringing and small town sensibilities to the stage in order to convey his views of the world in a style that endears him to people of all ages and demographics. In addition to his regular feature work at Church of Satire, Hoot has also appeared at Magooby’s Joke House (Baltimore), The Comedy Zone - Harrisburg, PA and the Ellicott Silly Comedy Festival in Maryland.
Natasha Keller was known as Ithaca’s most eligible Bachelorette, and now she is known as Ithaca’s funniest and most eligible Bachelorette. With a unique look on life as a tall, single mother, Natasha is the comedian that you didn’t know you needed until you see her.
Skyler Holzman started doing stand-up during his freshman year at Cornell, about six hours before his 19th birthday. From there, he started Cornell's only stand-up comedy club called Pun Intended and has performed throughout NYC, Ithaca and various Zoom rooms. He's currently a senior studying English and therefore plans to pursue unemployment full-time after graduating.
Kenneth McLaurin has long gone by the moniker, "The Funniest Person You've Never Heard Of." But after the release of his 2nd album "Life’s A Joke, Find The Funny," that is rapidly changing. As a North Carolina native living in Upstate NY, Kenneth keeps audiences laughing with his southern fried outlook on parenting, marriage, divorce, our culture, and life in general, and his infectious energy and affable nature.
