Matt McClowry – Headliner
With his towering frame, faintly sinister good looks, and a mild case of Asperger syndrome, Matt McClowry does not easily fit the stereotypical image of a stand-up comic. But after a few moments of watching him on stage, it’s clear he’s a natural; with a laconic yet still faintly annoyed delivery underscoring sharply observed gripes about a host of modern absurdities.
Originally from Detroit where he was voted “Best Local Comic” by the Metro Times, Matt now making his home in New York City, and has been receiving national exposure, touring coast to coast as well as posting appearances at many prestigious comedy festivals, like the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival with Dave Chappelle, and racking up contest victories at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta as well the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas.
He has appeared on the AXS TV series “Gotham Comedy Live”, “Laughs” on FOX and his album “Uncomfortable” can be heard on Pandora, Spotify, and SiriusXM.
Johnny Roque is a Southern Californian native who is a writer that sold a sketch to Comedy Central’s animated show Trip Tank and a stand-up comedian that has recorded a comedy album. He has worked with some of the best stand-up comedians in the business like Gabriel Iglesias on his Youtube show “Damn TV” that has over 100,000 subscribers. He has performed with comedians like Felipe Esparza, winner of Last Comic Standing and Joey “CoCo” Diaz who recently played Robert DeNiro’s trainer in “Grudge Match.” He has performed for the troops, churches, bars, colleges, and comedy clubs around the country.
Johnny Roque is raw and nerdy comedian that started performing comedy at 18 years old. As a once academic decathlon member that had a letterman in Wrestling and was a part of marching band led him to the conclusion that he is a nerd. A fan of pop culture, movies, video games, and mixed martial arts Johnny Roque loves to blend subjects that nobody would connect. He has made subjects such as scotch tape, living with his parents, and his future wife hilarious to audiences of every kind.
Daniel Eachus – Headliner
Daniel Eachus is a rising young star in the comedy world. At only 23, Eachus has the chops of a comedy veteran and people are taking notice. Born and raised in Fresno, CA, he was surrounded by farms, but didn’t want to grow raisins for the rest of his life so he turned to comedy to get him out. For college, Daniel’s wish came true and he left Fresno to study in Long Beach. By day, he was a student, by night he performed on the stand-up comedy circuit. After just one year of nightly performances, he became the youngest finalist ever in the “Funniest Comic in Los Angeles” contest held at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. He’s been entertaining audiences ever since.
Eachus has been performing stand-up and improv throughout the nation’s clubs and recently was featured on Comedy Central’s“Up Next” and is scheduled for an appearance on Sideshow Network’s “Five Spot.” A finalist or winner in scores of comedy competitions including the World Series of Comedy, Orange County Improv Cup, Up Next Regionals, Flapper’s Uncle Clydes and more, he’s considering expanding his trophy shelf.
But doing stand-up and improv is not enough for Daniel Eachus. When he’s not on stage making people laugh, he’s making people laugh at their screens. Daniel acts, writes, and produces the comedy sketch series, “Bigfoot Chasers” and appeared on the MTV show “Jerks With Cameras”.
With more than 20 years experience Johnny is a sure fire crowd pleaser. This experience gives Johnny the ability to perform in some of the most demanding situations such as his LFOR Tour for the troops over in Iraq! Johnny’s humor is wild and exciting without being offensive or vulgar.
