Tammy Pescatelli – Headliner

Arguably one of the hardest working women in comedy today, Tammy Pescatelli bring brassy sexiness with a female voice of witty sarcasm to her audiences, holding her own on the topics of sports, television, dating and family life using tongue-in-cheek humor. She has appeared on The View, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, A&E’s Donnie Loves Jenny, CBS’s The Talk, NBC’s Last Comic Standing: The Best of the Best, and The Howard Stern Show and was featured in the documentary I Am Battle Comic. Tammy was also chosen by Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg to be part of their Dirty, Sexy, Funny franchise.

Aaron Kleiber – Host

Aaron has emerged as one of the most in-demand feature acts, touring alongside the likes of Bob Saget, Jim Breuer and Harland Williams. He is known for his energized, crowd-pleasing live performances with tales of life, marriage and fatherhood. He has been seen on Gotham Comedy Live, Standup and Deliver and Nickelodeon, and heard on Doug Loves Movies, feature films and dozens of commercials.

Mary Santora

Mary Santora is a fresh breath of femininity in the otherwise male-dominated world of stand-up. The Cleveland native’s quick-witted, observational style has landed her the opportunity to not only travel across the country in various clubs, but to open for several comedic greats. She took second place at the 2015 Cleveland Comedy Festival, was named The Best Local Female Comedian by the Cleveland Scene Magazine two years in a row in 2016 and 2017, was chosen to compete in the 2018 Best of the Midwest competition at LaughFest in Grant Rapids, Michigan and is continuing to quickly make a name for herself as one of the best up-and-coming comics in the Midwest.

Juanda Mayfield

Juanda grew up on the east side of Cleveland, cutting her comedy teeth early on by impersonating members of her church family. She soon learned she had a knack for making people laugh and keeping them entertained. Juanda won the Ohio’s Funniest Comedian contest at The Funny Stop Comedy Club as well as several other comedy contests. She’s had audiences busting a gut in almost every town, large and small, in Ohio. She also loves playing in clubs and colleges across the country, because it gives her a chance to coupon (her second love). It’s nearly impossible to contain your laughter once you experience Juanda’s witty perspective on food, fat, children and relationships, just to name a few.

Mike Wysocki

Mike is a popular Pittsburgh comedian known for regularly contributing to the WDVE Morning Show and co-hosing the Jim Krenn and the Q Morning Show on Q92.9FM.
