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.

Jake Soloman Crowned
As "Ohio's Best
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".
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".

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.
