Chet Wild's performances blend self-deprecating humor with witty crowd interaction, building a relationship with the audience and making them laugh. Beyond finding humor in his own flaws, Wild seeks to share his views - mostly frustrations - on practically anything. Chet has performed with such comedy greats as Louie Anderson, Dom Irrera, & Patrice ONeal and is fresh off of appearances in The Lucille Ball Festival of Comedy as well as The Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival. In addition to stand-up, Chet has worked as a comedic video journalist for Hearst Media, and has done various freelance writing - most notably for Lopez Tonight on TBS, as well as The Wegmans Hillside Gala where he wrote sketches for and performed alongside none other than Alec Baldwin. Chase Roper of Punchline Magazine describes Wild as "A strong performer with a unique voice" and a show review by Odeum Entertainment calls him "A comedian to see over and over again." "As funny and original as anyone I've seen on stage." - Ted Greenberg, Emmy Award-winning writer for David Letterman.
Ryan Dalton is a comedian that wants everyone to just relax. His lovable sarcasm and smart, conversational style makes for a broadly appealing show. Ryan's comedy has led him to regular appearances in the country's best comedy clubs. He is a regular on the nationally syndicated, "Bob and Tom Radio Show" and his first comedy album, "You Were Funny Too," is on rotation on Sirius XM's "RawDog" comedy channel. Ryan made his television debut on the third season of Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham."
In 2011, Ryan made his first USO tour of Qatar and Afghanistan. He also wrote for Comedy Central's "Roast of Charlie Sheen," took the grand prize at the 2011 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas and finished as a finalist in the 2011 Boston Comedy Festival. This year, Ryan finished as a finalist in the 2012 Laughing Skull Festival and was chosen to participate in the 2012 Great American Comedy Festival. Ryan also performed in the "New Faces / Unrepped" showcase at the 2012 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Most recently, Ryan made his television acting debut on TBS's "Sullivan and Son."
Tickets are $25 per person, and attendees must be 21 or older. Ticket price includes the show and buffet dinner.
