    Ty Barnett
    Ty Barnett, a Chicago native, got his start at Seattle’s “Comedy Underground,” since then, his stardom keeps rising!!  Dedicated to “bringing the funny,” his shows have been called “hilarious” (Whoopi Goldberg,”) “thought provoking,” “edgy,” and have earned him countless T.V. appearances.  As one of the two finalist on the most watched and Emmy nominated season of Last Comic Standing.  Ty has gone on to multiple Tonight Show appearances (Jay Leno says Ty is: “one of the funniest comedians working”).  He as stared on HBO’s Bad Boys of Comedy, and he has his own special on Comedy Central Presents.  Ty has been called “one to watch” by the Hollywood Reporter. He has also been seen on the sitcoms Samantha Who and Til Death, as well as NickMom Night Out and Tosh.O. With charm and style that transcend race and age, Ty’s ability to rock any and all audiences has made him an international favorite on stages from the South Side of Chicago to theaters in London.  You do not “go to” a Ty Barnett show, you “hang-out” with Ty Barnett. 
    Warren B. Hall

    Warren B. Hall has performed for our troops stationed in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan…not once or twice but five times!  He is a regular on the cruise ship and comedy club circuits.  He has released two stand up CDs, which you may have heard on Sirius XM, Spotify or Pandora.  Lastly, he released his first stand-up comedy special on Dry Bar Comedy.  He has been called “oddly relatable” and “a funny friend of the family.”

    Spencer James
    Spencer James was the winner of the prestigious World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, NV in 2014.  Since winning, he has now become a regular on the Las Vegas Strip, performing at the iconic Tropicana, Stratosphere, and even the legendary MGM Grand.  Spencer James is a delight to all audiences young and old.  As he speaks, sings, and even dances his way on stage, he uses his unique blend of story-telling to express his personal life experiences, of which many abound.
    While touring as a standup comedian for the past 10 years, Spencer always gives a nod to the old vaudeville acts that came before him.  As “this generation’s version of Dean Martin,” he dives into his childhood with tales such as his military father not speaking to him until he was 12 years old; “What have I always told you?!” ‘I didn’t know you could talk to be perfectly honest.’  Then there also was that time his mother advised him, “Don’t take candy from strangers.” ‘I’m a fat kid, I’m looking for a stranger every day now.’  Spencer has performed all over North America, he has won festivals, and he was recently featured on Fox’s television show Laughs.  Yet now, with the title as a Las Vegas headliner, he brings all of his talents to the stage for a once in a generation experience.
