Side Splitters Comedy Club Presents Next Big Comic

November 22
5:10 PM 2010

Ryan Singer is the rarest of breeds: A comic's comic who electrifies mainstream audiences with material that is both uncompromising and unpretentious. The premeditated chaos of Singer's comedy can now be heard on his debut album, HOW TO GET HIGH WITHOUT DRUGS, an intense exercise in wordplay, improvisation, and storytelling recorded at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, OH. Those who enter Singer's world will be rewarded with knowledge of the connections between dimwitted hunters and Tyra Banks, cookies and racial tension, and even gay marriage and dragons, courtesy of a comedian who expertly connects insanity and brilliance.

He was one of 4 finalist in CMT's Next Big Comic Contest, has appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show Bob & Tom and was a regional finalist in Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight.

For more info, just ask him as he'll be glad to talk about himself.

Appearing Next Weekend
Dale Jones, December 2 - 5

Since 1993 Dale Jones has been perfecting his craft and has become one of the most wild and energetic comics in the country. He has entertained audiences at Comedy Clubs throughout the United States and Canada. His zany on-stage character always sends club patrons to the exits with lots of questions but no disappointments.

His machine gun style of delivery and animated facial contortions combined with quick improvisations and non-stop physical comedy leave the audience wishing they had his energy. Forget "high energy"-- this is frantic! His shows are always a most memorable comedy experience. Club owners and managers have gotten used to fielding questions about when Dale will be returning.

Dale has had numerous television appearances including NBC - Last Comic Standing Season Six, Fox Television's 30 seconds to Fame and The Comedy Network in Canada. He also appeared briefly in the 2003 MGM movie "Out Of Time" with Denzel Washington.

Dale started his career in Nashville, Tennessee. While working (mostly wasting) his days away in a factory, his co-workers dared him to try his hand at his life long dream, making people laugh. He stepped on stage for the first time at a Zanies Comedy Club's open mike night. Two years later, Dale turned a dream into a reality and started doing stand-up full time.
