The Disgruntled Clown
A Full Week of Shows
He's 6'5" and doesn't do children's parties. Brace yourself for one of the wildest shows you will ever see.
The Disgruntled Clown's material covers a wide range of topics -- from employment opportunities, marital issues, disciplining children, achieving financial independence, sports and much, much more. No two shows are ever alike.
If you are looking for politically correct comedy, keep walking!
The Clown uses props throughout his show for "virtual" enhancement, but do not misunderstand. At 6'5" and 285 lbs. The Clown refuses to let anybody else take control of HIS show!
The Disgruntled Clown has made regular appearances on FOX TV commercials. He has been featured in other network commercials, appearing both in and out of character.
Janet Williams • "The Tennessee Tramp"
4 Nights Only!
In the Spring of 2012, the Funny Stop introduced Northeastern Ohio to Janet Williams, a.k.a. "The Tennessee Tramp". Now she's back!
"The Tennessee Tramp" is a lovable force to be reckoned with. Her endearing stage presence makes audiences think of her as a crazy grandmother, a wacky aunt, or a nutty neighbor. Audience members can all relate to her in some way and leave her shows with a feeling that she is part of the family.
Janet Williams has toured the United States and Canada as well as performing as part of several USO tours in Japan, Korea, Guam, and Germany.
Drawing from comedy influences including Eddie Murphy, Wanda Sykes, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Etta Mae, and "every husband I have ever had", the Tennessee Tramp has been described on her television appearances on 3 seasons of BET Comic View as "a black woman trapped in a white woman's body".
The Tennessee Tramp rocks the house everywhere she appears and it will happen during this return appearance at the Funny Stop.
April 30 - May 2
3 Nights Only!
The Funny Stop welcomes back an all-time club favorite Tommy Blaze for his first appearance in over 2 years.
A veteran of the comedy stage, Blaze has appeared in every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse, and doghouse in the country.
His comedy is opinionated, thoughtful, controversial and admittedly one sided. If you are married, single, divorced, parents, gay or lesbian, confused, young, desperate, misguided, lost or easily offended then you need Tommy Blaze to straighten you out.
In addition to comedy clubs, private corporate events, casinos, cruise ships and colleges, Tommy was series regular on the nightly comedy series The Newz (predecessor to Mad TV), appeared in the hit television show Friends, and has starred in the movies Rumpelstiltskin and Viewer Discretion Advised.
