BENTON TOWNSHIP, MI – We’ve scoured the country for the funniest and most outrageous comics we've ever seen and guess what... you've never even heard of them! But all that's about to change! Nobodies of Comedy is coming to the Lake Michigan College Mendel Center Mainstage on Saturday, November 30, at 8 p.m. as part of the Artists You Should Know series.
The evening will feature nearly two hours of stand-up comedy with the best "unknown" comedians from across the country rolled into one hilarious show. No over-hyped stars, just hilarious comics and a great night out with guaranteed laughs.
Comedians scheduled to appear are Matt Bergman, Tony Deyo, Chris Doucette, and Andy Pitz. They are all on the national touring circuit having appeared on Conan, Letterman, and other TV comedy outlets.
Matt Bergman has been performing at clubs and colleges since he was in college pursuing a degree in criminal justice. After graduating, he realized he was afraid of criminals and decided stand-up comedy was the way to go. Since then he has toured non-stop across the United States and Canada. He is a favorite amongst club owners and audiences alike with his sarcastic style and absurd observations.
Tony Deyo is a rarity in the comedy world – clean AND funny. He has performed at clubs, colleges, and festivals around the country including the prestigious HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. Deyo is known for his sharp, quick material that is suitable for nearly any audience. He was recently named one of the year’s best by the New York Post, has been heard on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show, and in September, Deyo appeared on Conan.
Chris is the son of a trucker and the first in his family to graduate college. He’s got a blue collar attitude with an Ivy League wit. Chris also represents the next generation of gay comedians, which he uses to full advantage without resorting to stereotypes or cliches. He has performed on FOX, NPR, The Joey Reynolds Show, WTOP, and WAMU. The Advocate has referred to him as “The Best of LGBT Comedy.”
Andy's unique material and engaging, personable delivery has landed him spots on "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." With over 20 years of touring experience, Andy relies on his upbeat and positive personality to get laughs with nearly 100 percent clean material that is free of insults and negativity (except when directed at himself.) His material can be heard regularly on XM/Sirius satellite radio's clean comedy station.
