Mike Paramore

His Funny Stop Debut

Mike Paramore is the guy you fight to sit next to in a movie theatre, on a long car ride, or during a boring lecture.

His natural ability to infuse everyday situations with energetic, uplifting humor, combined with a natural ability to put you at ease is key to his personal brand of comedy.

Paramore's smooth delivery and powerful punchlines make him a force in stand-up comedy, which is very apparent in his debut album "The Things We Tell Ourselves", available now on iTunes and Amazon.

In addition to performing at the 2010 Stellar Awards and being a part of the 2012 Just for Laughs Festival, Mike was a finalist in the 2014 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, winner of the 2015 Cleveland Comedy Festival, winner of the 2016 Laughing Devil Festival in New York City and winner of the 2017 Laugh Fest's "Best in the Midwest" competition.

February 11-13
Kevin Farley

Three Nights Only!

In 2017, Funny Stop fans got their first opportunity to see Kevin Farley live and in person on our stage. In his Funny Stop debut, two things quickly became clear.

1) This guy is a great comic

and

2) Two nights was not a long enough booking to accommodate all of the people who wanted to see him perform.

Pete has taken care of #2 by booking Kevin Farley for a 3 night appearance on Thursday through Saturday, September 17th through 19th, so with that... the Funny Stop is proud to welcome Kevin Farley for a return appearance at our club.

To answer your first question, yes, Kevin is the brother of Saturday Night Live legend and movie actor Chris Farley.

Here is more about this weekend's headliner.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kevin Farley studied at the famous Second City in Chicago. It wasn't long after that he appeared in films such as Black Sheep (with his brother Chris Farley) and The Waterboy with Adam Sandler.

Soon after, Farley landed a starring role as character Doug Linus on MTV's sitcom "2gether" where he was met with rave reviews. Farley then went on to star with top billing in the feature films "An American Carol" and "White Knight". Other films to his credits are "Crowning Jules", "Frat Pack" and "Joe Dirt 2". Kevin Farley's TV guest appearances have been on Hawaii Five-O, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Rules of Engagement, The Neighbors, Just Shoot Me and United States of Tara to name a few.

Farley moved behind the camera as co-writer and co-director of "Hollywood & Wine", which takes an irreverent look at an actress struggling in Hollywood. In addition, Farley directed the comedy "Paranormal Movie". The film pokes fun of the "found footage" horror, sub-genre popular with movie goers today.

To his credit, and met with high praise in all the national reviews, Farley was Co-Executive Producer of the heartwarming "I Am Chris Farley", a feature-length biographical documentary about his brother Chris, the late comedy legend. Presently Farley is co-starring in "F is for Family", a Netflix comedy series, This year he will be co-starring in CMT's new series "Still the King".

When Farley is not writing screenplays, producing or directing or on set filming, he regularly embraces the stage in stand-up comedy. Farley usually appears as the headline act nation-wide in clubs such as The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, and The Improv, but he has also opened for David Spade, Chris Rock, Norm MacDonald, Jeff Ross, Todd Glass, Kevin Nealon and Jeff Richards. Along the lines of stand-up comedy, Farley starred in a New York musical about comedians called "HA! The Musical".

Farley has hosted many live shows, and has been featured on The Today Show, The View, Extra, Fox News and countless radio shows. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California and is involved with the non-profit organization The American Irish Fund.

Kevin Farley has truly established himself as comedic presence both on the big screen and off. Multi-tasking as a comedian, actor, writer, director and producer seems easy for Farley because he does it all, with a fabulous sense of humor.

We are so pleased to host Kevin Farley this weekend at the Funny Stop. Check out his Twitter feed by clicking HERE, his YouTube channel by clicking HERE and his website, KevinFarleyOfficial.com, then call our Box Office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservation today.

Greg Morton

Two Nights Only!

You likely saw Greg Morton just last year, advancing to the semi-finals of the 14th season of NBC's "America's Got Talent".

What a long way Greg Morton's career has come.

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 loses 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 on our stage, live and in person during this "Two Nights Only!" appearance.

Nathan Timmel

Three Nights Only!

Not as serious as Plato, but lighter than Socrates. Not as edgy as Clinton, but livelier than Nixon. Not as heavy as GWAR, but deeper than Culture Club. Nathan Timmel is a stand-up comedy veteran, masterful storyteller and headliner with over a decade of experience behind the mic.

Nathan's comedy roots run deep. When he was but six years old, 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."

After graduating from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a degree in English, Nathan realized he was unemployable. One open mic later... he began a career in the business of laughter.

Nathan Timmel finds the absurdity in everything from making babies to overcrowded prisons, creating comedy that’s intelligent, fun and engaging (with a sprinkling of raucousness). Nathan has recorded five comedy CDs, two of which get regular airplay on Sirius/XM radio, in addition to being the writer of 3 published, full-length books.

He has been a guest on the Bob & Tom Show three times and traveled overseas nine separate times to perform for American troops—including stops in Iraq and Afghanistan. He performs at comedy clubs around the country, from Buffalo to Albuquerque and Colorado Springs to Baltimore... and this weekend returns to Northeastern Ohio to perform once again at the Funny Stop.

To learn more about Nathan Timmel, visit his website at NathanTimmel.com, then call the Funny Stop box office at 330-923-4700 to make your reservation to seem him this weekend.
