Traci Kanaan

The Princess of Parodies

______________

"I wish she did drugs so there was some explanation for her behavior."

Traci's mother
______________

The self proclaimed love child of Liza Minnelli and Klinger, Traci Kanaan grew up in Berea, Ohio. Her Italian mother loved piano, musical theater and opera. Her Lebanese father loved antique cars, stock car races and dirty jokes.

The result? A classically trained pianist that sings REALLY twisted ditties.

Traci started taking piano lessons at the age of 4. Never one to play it the way it was written, she constantly improvised during her piano lessons. She'd make up funny words to the songs or change the endings of her pieces, ultimately burning out eight piano teachers before graduating from high school.

Traci attended Otterbein College in Westerville, Ohio, graduating with a B.A. in Music Business, and minors in Music Composition, Electronic Music, and Piano Performance. For her senior recital, she composed all original music, performed by other students. Each piece reflected her sense of humor, including lingerie being pulled out of instruments, pieces performed on children's toys, and the staged death of a performer...assassinated by a ping pong ball gun.

In 2001, Traci's life changed forever when she saw Tony and Tina's Wedding, an improv theater production, while visiting her parents in Cleveland. She vowed she would be in that show if the production ever came to her town in Florida.

Eight months later, the community theater announced auditions for Tony and Tina's Wedding and Traci landed the role of Connie Mocogni, the eight months pregnant maid of honor.

While taking an improv class to prepare for the role, Traci met other aspiring comedians who encouraged her to try stand up. Traci did, and she's never looked back.

Traci continues to amaze audiences all over the country, with her irreverent style of comedy that creatively combines stand up with her piano and vocal skills.

Her show takes you on a musical journey of self deprecating humor, her life, family, pop culture, political events, and wrapping it all up with her energetic closer, "Songs you should never play on piano."

The Funny Stop is proud to welcome back Traci Kanaan... "The Princess of Parodies!"

Dustin Diamond

Screech from Saved by the Bell

Let's give a big Funny Stop welcome Dustin Diamond as he makes a return appearance at the club!

He played the bad guy on Celebrity Fit Club and has been hailed as the "Dark Prince of Comedy". Dustin Diamond is a pop culture icon, and is best known for his role as Screech on Saved by the Bell.

Dustin played Screech through all 10 seasons of the show, and to this day, Saved by the Bell is still seen in syndication 16 times per week in 105 countries.

For the past 17+ years Dustin has toured the world as a stand-up comedian. His act is suitable for the now grown-up fans of Saved by the Bell. It is adult-oriented, hilarious, and definitely not the same squeaky-clean, Saturday morning comedy that he spent 10 years doing as Screech. In his act, Dustin touches on life's most important topics grandma porn, farts, and the secrets of the female sex.

In addition to stand-up comedy, Dustin has been involved in reality television, indie movies, and numerous other projects. Most recently, he played himself in Better Reach Screech, The Nerdist's parody of Breaking Bad. He appeared on the British reality series Big Brother, and was also seen on Oprah's Where Are They Now?, in which he touched upon topics such as his tell-all book Behind the Bell, and other previous media stunts.

Dustin's other interests include playing video games, following all things "nerdy" and playing the bass guitar.

Dave Landau

Three Big Nights

Working the road nonstop since his 21st birthday, Dave Landau has grown into a true comedic juggernaut. Finding himself much in-demand among audiences and club owners due to his deadpan demeanor and those jokes - my God, those jokes - that fluidly fly forth with breakneck pacing and perfect timing.

Dave Landau, it can be said with all due respect, is a throwback to another era of comedy. The entertaining everyman. Innocent enough at first blush; as he states his case, you begin to see where you and he have quite a bit in common. A wife, a house. An odd sense of calm in an increasingly crazy world. You're on a tour of the familiar and prosaic, with Dave Landau as the bus driver.

Then he drops his foot on the accelerator. And things start to get wild. You see, Dave Landau might appear to be just like you, but he's not really. His mind goes to places that angels would fear to tread, and he has no problem telling you about it. The mark of a great comedian, it is said, is the ability to find jokes where others would find tears.

Dave find jokes everywhere; with his own foibles and faults, to his family, to pop culture and the state of the world today. Cutting his comedic teeth as a teenager in Detroit in the Second City's Conservatory, Dave Landau has risen to become one of the most in-demand headliners working today.

He's appeared on Comedy Central's "Live At Gotham" as well as being featured prominently on two consecutive seasons of NBC's "Last Comic Standing."

Dave Landau has become a regular on the nationally-syndicated "Bob & Tom" radio show and was honored as one of the Top 21 club comics of today at HBO's Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

Learn more about Dave and even see some video of his stand-up act by visiting his appropriately named website, DaveLandau.com, then call the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to book your reservation to he him live and in person on our stage.

February 8-10
Vince Morris

His Funny Stop Debut

Originally from Columbus Ohio, Vince Morris is one of the hottest up and coming comedy veterans on the scene today.

No stranger to television, Vince has appeared on B.E.T.'s Comic View, H.B.O's Def Comedy Jam, CBS' Late Late Show, Comics Unleashed W/Byron Allen, and his own Half Hour Comedy Central Special just to name a few.

In addition to headlining comedy clubs, theatres and his television appearances, Vince Morris has been featured at the very prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival, and the H.B.O. Aspen Comedy Festival. Vince has also been honored to perform overseas for the U.S. troops in such places as Baghdad, Kuwait and Afghanistan.

Always speaking from his heart, Vince is dangerously funny. With his diverse style, and original material, Vince appeals to audiences from all walks of life. Vince's unique ability to "switch gears," allows his comedy to go from dirty to squeaky clean, from personal to improvisational, from thought provoking to just down right silly.

Predictably unpredictable, Vince is guaranteed never to have the same show twice!

Check out his website, VinceMorris.com , then give the Funny Stop box office a call at 330-923-4700 to make a reservation to see Vince Morris in his headlining debut at our club.
