Ray DeVito

Three Nights Only!

For just the second time in more than 4 years, Ray DeVito returns to the Funny Stop for a three-day weekend of fun.

Ray DeVito is one of the youngest comedians headlining across the country. From childhood to the enduring struggles of trying to adjust to adulthood, this former Second City performer's material touches on all of his life experiences and insecurities.

DeVito's humor is smart, likeable, and energetic. Besides touring the nation's top comedy clubs, Ray is also one of the most requested comedians on college campuses.

This native of Cleveland's Italian-American neighborhoods, Ray DeVito made his national television debut in 2005 on the Lifetime Network where his performance at Gotham Comedy Club aired on "How Clean is Your House?" That performance led to appearances on the E! Network and Entertainment Tonight.

Ray also frequents radio's Bob and Tom Show and he has been the featured comedian of the week on SIRIUS Satellite Radio. Clips from his first full-length comedy CD entitled "1647 Waterbury" can be heard on SIRIUS and XM Satellite Radio on a regular basis.

Now based in New York City, Ray is quickly making an impact on the Big Apple's comedy scene. After nearly two years away from our stage, the Funny Stop Comedy Club is happy to bring back Ray DeVito to this home area.

Check out his new website at RayDeVito.net and his Twitter account linked HERE, then call our Box Office at 330-923-4700 to make a reservation to see Ray DeVito this weekend.

Mark Anthony

Two Nights Only!

Mark Anthony (yes..that's his real name) grew up Cleveland, OH. As a kid he always wanted to perform as a singer in a rock band, but never had enough confidence in his own voice. So he went into his next love...comedy.

As a kid he listened to Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor (when his Mom wasn't around) and imitated the jokes he heard to his friends. As a heavy kid, he learned humor was a good weapon to use to avoid being picked on in school.

Mark gets his material from life, being overweight, being married, growing up in the inner-city, and listening to rock and roll. Mark's mixed bag of sources makes for a refreshingly different, very funny show. Mark has performed in most of the fifty states and Canada in venues from West Point Military Academy to Westward Ho in South Dakota (Don't even ask!)

Mark has appeared on Comedy Central and The Black Entertainment Television Network. He is considered to be "too on the edge" for Jay Leno, but "not dirty enough" for Def Jam.

Charlie Wiener

Three Nights Only!

What happens when a baby boomer happily residing in a closet, deep in the recesses of his mind, filled with sixties memorabilia wakes up to find he has been married several times and is the father to two daughters of voting age?

Where did the good times go?
What's a mortgage?
How did his old nemesis, Reality, find him?
Who will win the battle royal for control of his life, responsibility (Yuck) or his mind?!

Charlie Wiener joins the hilarious struggle each night live on stage as he rants and harangues against that which would make him give up the life he has chosen and have to find adulthood and a regular paycheck.

Through three musical albums, headlining gigs in comedy clubs and colleges throughout this great land of ours, hosting two television shows, WIENERVISION and OFF THE WALL, and appearing on such shows as A&E's Evening at the Improv, Charlie Wiener has proven over and over again that there is nothing more hysterical than an old hippie coming to grips with everyday situations we've had to deal with all along.

He has been considered one of the top comedians, working the club circuit for two decades. For one of the most freakishly, wild and comical evenings you will ever have, with all the subtlety of a howling monkey, it's Charlie Wiener to the rescue. You'll find out your life isn't really so bad.

Be sure to call our Box Office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservations for these shows which officially kick-off the Christmas season at the Funny Stop!

Dustin Diamond

Three Nights Only!

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.

For more on Dustin and to hear what he has to say, you can follow him on Twitter, @DustinDiamond.

GEMINI

Three Nights Only!

There was a time, not so long ago, when only friends and by passers walking down a New York street saw bright promise combined with energetic talent when entertainer Gemini strutted his stuff.

Several Las Vegas, Palladium, Atlantic City, and hundreds of comedy clubs later, Gemini's magic and ambience are changing things.

Everything about Gemini and his show is a cut above fantasy. His magic, his jokes, the way he reads the audience easier than a front page headline. Because of his unique style of showmanship he not only keeps the show in motion with his jokes, he has several magic sets as well.

The "Maestro of Magic & Laughter" is also an accomplished ventriloquist, with several "friends" that keep the audience in the palm of his hand.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, his streetwise sense of humor and wit came in handy throughout his life "in the neighborhood." As he says, "I do a little bit of comedy and a little bit of magic. What you laugh at, that's the comedy. What you don't, well, that's the magic."

A Special Family Magic Show will be offered Saturday, December 15th at 2:00 PM - Call 330-923-4700 for reservations.

Mike Conley

Three Nights Only!

The middle child of German-Irish Catholic family, Mike grew up realizing life is an adventure. In his words, "Sometimes it's written by Mark Twain, and sometimes by Stephen King".

When asked where he gets the inspiration for his comedy, Mike simply replies, "Look around, people - aren't you paying attention?"

With material that ranges from teenage life in the mid 70's to middle age in the new millennium, everyone in the audience should find SOMETHING that strikes a familiar chord - as well as their funny bone!

This 25-year Stand Up Comedy Road Dog can be found every Friday morning on the Kathy & Ike Morning Show on Canton's Mix 94.1 and nearly everyday on Twitter at @MikeConleyFunny.

Call our box office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservation to see him live and in person this weekend at the Funny Stop.

Bil Benden

Three Nights Only!

For over twenty years Bil Benden has come back to the stage where he got his start, to spread his special brand of Christmas cheer.

Not long after Bil hits the stage you will realize you're hurting from laughter, and you'll swear Bil has to live in your house. But as Bil's father always said, we all live in the same house, we just pull in a different driveway.

Bil Benden's show has been described as equal parts of marriage counseling, parental advice, crises management, and animal husbandry.

Bil feels that after 30 years of marriage (to a girl he met when they were 12) and three kids, he has something to add to the discussion.

One of the best things about a Bil Benden show is just when you think you're laughing as hard as you can, he gets you to laugh just a bit harder (just like a great personal trainer can get you run harder.)

Now remember we said "like a great personal trainer", because as soon as you get a look at Bil you will know he is no personal trainer.

If you want to laugh, Bil is your guy.

If you want to run, Bil is out!

What we are saying here is that from start to finish, top to bottom, and then reach around, you will laugh at things in a whole new light after attending a show headlined by Bil Benden.

You will learn things you already knew but didn't know you knew.

You will learn that while some men suffer from ED, Bil and maybe you suffer from ND. What is ND you maybe asking? Well just come out to one of Bil's shows this week and find out.

You will also learn how porn can ruin fishing, hunting, traveling, or any other of your favorite pass times.

So now is the time for you to pick up the phone call the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to make a reservation to find out why Bil Benden has been one of our club's holiday season traditions for over 2 decades.

Bil's show is a great way to bolster your holiday season fun, because he will get you laughing over the river and through the woods.

Bill Squire

NEW YEAR'S EVE
Two Shows!

Yes, we are aware that it sounds like Bill Squire is preparing to be a contestant on the recently resurrected show "To Tell The Truth".

- - -

I'm Bill Squire and this is my bio.

I am a stand-up comedian. I've been doing stand-up for a long time. I started when I was 22 years old after I was excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints.

I worked on my act and started getting work on the road. I always focused on writing and being the best comedian I can be. I have never focused on fame or fortune so I haven't been on TV but I have worked with a lot of comedians that have been on TV and in movies and some of them remember my name.

I have released three comedy albums. Sarcasm Bus was my first album and it isn't terrible. My second release was a self produced stand-up special called "Just Say Your Jokes" which you can watch for FREE on youtube. My third album "Crowded" came out in September 2013 and made it to number eight on the iTunes Comedy charts.

I do have a day job and that is co-hosting The Alan Cox Show on 100.7 WMMS.

Things are good now go make yourself familiar with my world.

- - -

If Bill doesn't win the million dollars, or whatever sum is paid out when no panelists guesses that he is who he is, we'll see him at the Funny Stop on New Year's Eve.

To follow Bill's directions to "go make yourself familiar with my world", please check out his website at BillSquire.com and his Twitter account HERE, then make your show ticket reservations by calling the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700.
