The official Kick Off event at Lakefront Brewery will feature some of the top stand up comics around.

Joe Riley (Host)
Joe is a social worker “by day” but has been doing stand up for the last couple years. He is very motivated by people’s personal perspective and find that’s where his best work comes from studying people. Growing up in Milwaukee has given him an abundance of stories and experiences to share on stage but has also given me the opportunity to experience a wide variation of perspectives.
Seth Davis is a writer, standup comedian, actor, storyteller, and producer from Chicago, IL. He has been doing standup religiously for 6 years. His comedy explores his quirky life through the lens of mental illness and situational storytelling. A graduate of The Second City and i.O. Theater, he’s been described as pee-in-your-pants funny by people with bladder control problems. Seth has appeared in You’re Being Ridiculous at The Steppenwolf Theater, NACA, New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, Sketch Fest, Chicago Musical Improv Fest, and is a regular at Zanies and the Laugh Factory. He produces the comedic storytelling shows, I Shit You Not and Snapped: Live. His comedy shows have been reviewed by Timeout Chicago, The Reader, and The Chicago Tribune; they actually said pretty good things.
Erin Grotheer is a Chicago transplant from a small farm in Kansas where she saw so many dogs stuck together. Erin’s comedic style gravitates towards the strange, yet adorable because…those dimples. Erin was a cast member of 100 Proof Comedy; founder and producer of Andorka’s Comedy Revue, and a producer of VHS Comedy, both popular monthly stand-up showcases in Chicago. Erin has opened for Ben Kronberg, performed in the Cream City Comedy Festival in Milwaukee, the Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival, and the NC Comedy Arts Festival. Erin is a writer and performer for the political satire, Libel and Slander, and was also an ensemble member in “Politically Correct Bedtime Stories” at the Annoyance Theatre. She was also selected as one of the top 4 stand-up comics in Chicago by the Chicago Reader “2017 Best-Of” reader poll.
