Energetic, clean and extremely funny, Andy Beningo was named “Best Comedian” by the Detroit Metro Times. He’s a veteran of many comedy festivals across the country and regular performs over 250 times per year. You can also find him in the documentary about comedy “Selling Laughs.” Andy has recently appeared on NBC's "Night Shift" and was a finalist on CMT's "Next Big Comic." Follow Andy on twitter.
If someone were to tell you they were performing as a comedy club MC six times a week and having to host karaoke after each show in the dead of winter 60 miles from the Canadian border while living in a 6x8 motel room next to a French fry factory, you might think they had it all. Chad Daniels on the other hand felt he needed something more in his life. Good thing he did too, because since then he's performed as a finalist in Comedy Central’s "Laugh Riots" competition, appeared on "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn," and Comedy Central Presents and released two comedy albums including his newest one, Busy Being Awesome.

While up on stage, comedienne Patti Vasquez is more like a close personal friend sharing humorous stories than she is a joke teller. Call her act "comedy with heart" or call it hysterically funny, Vasquez entertains audiences with her charming perspectives on politics, relationships and growing up in an Irish-Mexican-American family. Along with her storytelling, Patti keeps her audiences in stitches by pointing out the oddities in the everyday events and situations that anyone can relate to. In other news, check out the comedy festival Patti is involved with. Follow Patti on twitter.
