Funny Stop Comedian

Greg Morton

Legendary Performer
of Parodies & Voices

Greg Morton had only two choices in schoolyard conflicts. Learn the ways of the force, or use his wit to diffuse situations.

That wit would soon lead to winning first prize in the "So You Think You're Funny Contest" and the beginning of his stand-up comedy career.

He was no longer the shy introverted kid, drawing cartoons in the corner. He had finally found his voice. A voice he would later use to direct and voice over twenty Saturday Morning cartoons. This former mobile disc jockey, who used to play songs at weddings, now sings song parodies on nationally syndicated radio programs like the Bob and Tom Show.

Take Greg's "Obama Man", sung to Sammy Davis, Jr.'s tune "Candy Man", which has racked up over 4 million hits on YouTube.

Since the debut of his two minute Star Wars mash-up on Just for Laughs and Comedy Central, Greg Morton has gone on to entertain audiences worldwide, opening for Celine Dion and Luther Vandross at Radio City Music Hall.

A noble choice of career young Padawan. Trading light sabers for laughs. This way, no one looses an arm.

Check out Greg Morton's website at GregMorton.com and follow him on Twitter at @GregMortonComic, then call the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservation to see Greg Morton appear on our stage, live and in person, on April 27th through Aprll 29th.

Jake Soloman Crowned
As "Ohio's Best
Amateur Comedian"

On Tuesday night, September 16 a huge crowd had the opportunity to see the ten amateur comedians who survived the preliminary qualifiers, quarter-finals, and semi-finals to reach "THE FINALS" of the latest edition of the "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian" Contest at the Funny Stop.

Scores of performers had taken the stage over the Spring and Summer of 2014 to open the Funny Stop's Tuesday night shows in an attempt just to qualify for the elimination rounds of the contest.

During "The Finals", each contestant performed 5 minutes of clean material and the panel of judges used their professional experience to score the performances as to rate the audience support and response for each amateur.

When the numbers were tallied, Jake Soloman had achieved the goal of all of the competitors, being crowned as "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".

September 2014 Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian Contest Finals

 
Congratulations go out to Jake for earning the championship title.

Special recognition also goes out to the other 9 performers who advanced to the championship round.

In alphabetical order, they are:

Dan Fallone, Kali Fencil, Chris Harvey, Tony Madurai, Jerry Miller, Nancy Remlee, Spike Salazar, Drew Seachrist and Rob Telecky.

Keep an eye on the Funny Stop schedule for the club's next competition to see who is "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".

Funny Stop Comedian

Nathan Timmel

3 Nights Only

When he was but six years old, Nathan Timmel conned his sweet little old grandmother into buying him a record album. The cover pictured a man picking his nose, and what's funnier to a six-year-old than boogers? The album was George Carlin's "Class Clown," and soon Nathan was the only child running around the playground shouting the "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television."

Thus began Nathan's comedy career.

Since those auspicious beginnings, Nathan has performed at comedy clubs across the country, recorded two comedy CD's - the second of which, "An Idiot Speaks," receives regular airplay on both Sirius and XM satellite radio--and visited the nationally-syndicated Bob and Tom Show.

He has also become a world-traveler, having visited such countries as Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Japan (to name a few) to perform for American soldiers stationed far from home. Cutting past partisan politics and getting down to matters we all agree on is one of Nathan's many skills as a wordsmith; though the media may try to separate us as a people, Nathan is here to unite all using one weapon: the sound of laughter.

Look At What
Is New At The
Funny Stop
Comedy Club

The Stage View "Wall of Fame" Bar, Meeting Room Rentals, Gift Certificates, and More!

As the FIVE-TIME WINNER of the MyFoxCleveland "Hot List" competition as the best venue for Live Comedy in Northeastern Ohio, it would be easy for the Funny Stop Comedy Club to rest on its laurels, but that is not the case.

Let's take a look at just some of the new things going on at the Funny Stop Comedy Club.

Funny Stop's New Stage View Bar

Stage View Bar

Since the move to our new location several years ago, one element that our patrons missed was a sit down bar within the club.

Well now the Funny Stop has brought back that old facility element and has taken it one better by providing a sit down bar with a view of the stage.

Whether it be before, during, or after the live comedy show, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of our Stage View bar area.

Drink specials are offered after each evening's comedy show and a special Ladies Night promotion is offered every Thursday night as well.

Meeting Room Rental

It is getting more and more difficult for groups and organizations to find facilities to host their gatherings, meetings, reunions, etc.

Stepping in to fill that void, the Funny Stop now offers its showroom for such activities on mornings and afternoons, seven days a week as well as on most Sunday and Monday evenings.

Groups of up to nearly 200 will enjoy our open floor plan and elevated stage area.

Limited use of audio/visual equipment as well as food and beverage service are also available.

For more details, available dates, pricing, and to make your reservation, contact Nidal at 330-923-4700.

Gift Certificates

Do you know someone who needs an evening out on the town?

Do you have a relative or friend who is hard to by for?

No matter the circumstance, look no further than Gift Certificates from the Funny Stop Comedy Club to fill that need.

Funny Stop gift certificates spend just like cash so use them for admission the show, to enjoy a delicious meal or snack, or even to enjoy the beverage of choice.

To purchase a Funny Stop gift certificate, contact our box office at 330-923-4700.

And More!

Don't forget that the Funny Stop now offers a "VIP Card". Check out the full details of this program in the article found elsewhere on this page.
