What: Pig Minds Comedy Fest: Night 1
When: Friday, November 17, 2017 at 7:00 pm
Where: Pig Minds Brewing Co., Machesney Park, United States, 61115
Description: Pig Minds Brewing Co. Comedy Fest: Night 1 Friday November 17th 2017 8pm // FREE Host: Cameron Little Guest Feature: Kevin Haas Main Feature: Kaitlyn Grissom Headliner: Jason Earl Folks Host: Cameron Little is a producer for Shots and Giggles Live Comedy in Joliet and for Dr. Beef's Low Calorie Existential Such and Such Variety Show & Insert Food Theme Here. Cameron's comedy is off the wall absurdity mixed in with an abrasive view on the world. He has opened for Randy and Mr. Lahey from Trailer Park Boys and Creed Bratton from The Office. Guest Feature Jamie Martin is a local comedy "Jobber" and open mic vagabond you may have seen around the stateline area. Aside from being his Mothers favorite comedian his quick wits and dynamic play on words will leave you in a state of laughter and disbelief. Main Feature Kaitlyn Grissom is an Ohio gal who moved to Chicago in 2012 to pursue carpentry, tried her hand in standup and forgot to stop. You can see KAITLYN perform weekly at Comedy clubs all over Chicago and the suburbs. Headliner Jason Earl Folks is not going to be okay. Sure, he escaped the mean streets of Laurel, Maryland, to become a beloved and signature voice in the Chicago stand-up scene. That makes sense. His stage presence is hypnotizing, like watching a manic streetside preacher whom you can't help but feel is right about everything but his lifestyle of partying, tracking down Bigfoot, and drinking soup directly from the can is simply baffling. He is not afraid of anything, and he is here for you to learn from the beatings he has received in that process. He is Jason Earl Folks and you should be, too.
