When comedian Greg Hahn takes the stage, he does so with an energetic, all-out style of physical humor, one-liners and crowd work like you've never seen before. And once he lets loose, there's no stopping him because Hahn doesn't have time for laughs, he's out to create immediate pandemonium and panic. Hahn can wear an audience out with his rapid-fire jokes and leave them holding their sides, trying to catch their breath. Greg is one of the most manic comedians to ever enter our studio, something that was only amplified when we sat him in front of a full drum set. You can hear a sample of that visit every time Chick plays his rimshot. Follow Greg on Facebook and twitter.
For years comedian, songwriter and philosopher, Tim Wilson has been joining us on the air and in that time has treated us to a number of classic tunes such as My Brother In-Law, I Could Be Wrong and Church League Softball Fistfight. And though he's one of our most frequent guests, it's still an adventure every time he stops by, thanks in part to his uncanny ability to find a story to go along with any topic of conversation. But as a warning, if you're even talking to Tim, try to avoid mentioning The Bible, NASCAR, credit cards or Jimmy Carter. Along with writing comedy tunes, Tim is also author having written a book, Happy New Year - ted, about serial killer Ted Bundy. He's also just released a new digital album available for download at Amazon called Caffeine, Wired, Nervous and Pale.
Nick Griffin began doing standup comedy back in 1987 as a way to voice his frustrations with life and to avoid having a job with a boss. Sure he may be dark, cynical, depressed and has a problem getting along with women, but Griffin is one of our absolute favorite guests and is a must see if he performs in a club near you. Nick has been featured on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," "The Late Show w/ David Letterman," "The Late Late Show w/ Craig Ferguson" and recently finished a brand new comedy CD "Bring Out the Monkey." Follow Nick on twitter and facebook.
Tommy Johnagin began his stand-up career at the ripe young age of 18, a decision his parents were less than thrilled with. But how could they argue this life choice when their son obviously possessed a gift for joke telling, and more importantly, promised to pay them back for the six semesters of college he "wasted." While on stage (and hopefully on the air) Tommy doesn’t curse, but what he does do is find the humor in his life and the people he meets, (especially in his practical joke loving father). Tommy has been featured on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and and was a finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing." Follow Tommy on twitter. Tommy's new album, "Stand Up Comedy 2" is available now!
