Brian Kenny

I’m Bill Squire and this is my bio. I am a stand-up comedian. I’ve been doing stand-up for a long time. I started when I was 22 years old after I was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I worked on my act and started getting work on the road. I always focused on writing and being the best comedian I can be.

I have never focused on fame or fortune so I haven’t been on TV but I have worked with a lot of comedians that have been on TV and in movies and some of them remember my name. I have released three comedy albums. Sarcasm Bus was my first album and it isn’t terrible. My second release was a self produced stand-up special called “Just Say Your Jokes” which you can watch for FREE on youtube. My third album “Crowded” came out in September 2013 and made it to number eight on the iTunes Comedy charts.

I do have a day job and that is co-hosting The Alan Cox Show on 100.7 WMMS. Things are good now go make yourself familiar with my world.

 

Josh Morrow

Stand up comedy is often put in terms of a battle of wills between audience and performer for ego supremacy.  This paradigm must be tossed out the window and abandoned when you witness Joshua Morrow perform.  Every stage that Josh exits after delivering his signature brand of homespun, inclusive humor feels a little warmer, and audiences are left with a sense that they’ve reconnected with an old friend.

Joshua Morrow began his career as the steward of The Village Idiot at Lakewood Village Tavern, Cleveland’s longest running and most attended open mic.  Under Josh’s tenure, this show grew from the usual smattering of local heroes and budding comics to the must visit mic of the week.  He developed an ability to make anyone he brought to the stage feel like a star, and audiences bought in, giving the whole show an event feel despite its humble origins.

It wasn’t long until the clubs came calling, and Joshua Morrow became a talent coordinator and house emcee for the Cleveland branch of Bonkerz Comedy Club.  Josh applies his eye for talent and ability to set up anyone for a great set to create an environment that exceeds audience expectations night in and night out.  He is a valued member of the Accidental Comedy Collective, which is responsible for several showcases throughout Cleveland and the Accidental Comedy Festival every fall.  Josh is also a regular emcee at Hilarities 4th Street theater, and travels the Midwest entertaining hordes of comedy fans seven nights a week.

 

Rachel Goldman

Biting yet upbeat, Rachael Goldman’s entertaining rebuke of the “Midwestern nice” attitude has led her to work with such comedians as Bobcat Goldthwait, Gilbert Gottfried, Rich Vos, Emo Philips, Jimmy Pardo, Andy Kindler and Bill Burr. When she’s not doing stand-up, she’s a pawnbroker. She can’t shut up about it.

 

 

Hunter Roberts

Hunter Roberts is a stand up gentleman from a wonderfully magical town full of cows and butter. Determined to break through the glass ceiling hell-bent on shaping him into a ranch hand, Hunter has become an up-and-coming (it’s getting closer) comedian in the Bible Belt known for his highly energetic rants centered around his upbringing in the 90’s.

Hunter enjoys teaching dogs pointless children’s games, holding unlit cigarettes and filming his webseries, Forever Alone. He’s also shared the stage with late night talk show mainstays like Shane Mauss, Dave Stone and Nate Bargatze and been an official after-party act for Mumford & Sons’ 2012 Gentleman of the Road Stopover Tour in Bristol, TN.

 

Alex Hooper

Alex Hooper was sculpted in Baltimore, MD.  As a troubled weirdo, he tried on many hats before realizing only comedy could tame his hair. On stage he is known for his clever writing, fearless style, rampant energy, and sickeningly positive attitude. Offstage his expertise included pugs, yoga, and Pug Yoga. He has appeared on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle 2, Fox’s New Girl, TVLand, Nickelodeon, and most importantly, The Bad Girls Club.

Funny Or Die named him one of the 15 Funniest Comics to Follow. Good Deed Seats included him in their list of The 40 Best Up & Coming Comedians.  He created CRAVE, a unique comedy and dance party experience. Named one of LA Weekly’s Best of 2013, CRAVE has also been recognized by The LA Times and Thrillist.

Joshua Morrow

Stand up comedy is often put in terms of a battle of wills between audience and performer for ego supremacy.  This paradigm must be tossed out the window and abandoned when you witness Joshua Morrow perform.  Every stage that Josh exits after delivering his signature brand of homespun, inclusive humor feels a little warmer, and audiences are left with a sense that they’ve reconnected with an old friend.

Joshua Morrow began his career as the steward of The Village Idiot at Lakewood Village Tavern, Cleveland’s longest running and most attended open mic.  Under Josh’s tenure, this show grew from the usual smattering of local heroes and budding comics to the must visit mic of the week.  He developed an ability to make anyone he brought to the stage feel like a star, and audiences bought in, giving the whole show an event feel despite its humble origins.

It wasn’t long until the clubs came calling, and Joshua Morrow became a talent coordinator and house emcee for the Cleveland branch of Bonkerz Comedy Club.  Josh applies his eye for talent and ability to set up anyone for a great set to create an environment that exceeds audience expectations night in and night out.  He is a valued member of the Accidental Comedy Collective, which is responsible for several showcases throughout Cleveland and the Accidental Comedy Festival every fall.  Josh is also a regular emcee at Hilarities 4th Street theater, and travels the Midwest entertaining hordes of comedy fans seven nights a week.
