Brian Hicks - Headliner

Brian is one of the country's most sought-after stand-up comics, (no, he is not wanted by the police).

The laughs come fast and frequently as he has spent the last 22 years honing his craft at clubs and theaters across the United States Brian specializes in giving every audience a hilarious and singular comedic experience. His unique talent consists of clever material and unparalleled audience interaction, which he combines seamlessly with his lightning quick wit. Brian has incredible instincts and an undeniable ability to make audiences laugh. Sounds great, right? Of course it does, Brian wrote it!

He has performed in numerous clubs across the country including The Laugh Factory in Chicago, The Improv, and Zanies. Mike is also a comedic writer and is a Features Contributor for The Onion.

Jess Martinez

She’s single, bilingual, and ready to mingle… Well, she’s single. Jess Martínez is a Chicago-based comedian who enjoys making audiences laugh as she genuinely tries to make sense of the world around her. She has been described as the “Daria of Latina comics” and the “master of awkwardness” by peers that were genuinely trying to compliment her. Jess is the associate producer at Las Locas Comedy and assistant producer at The Moth StorySLAM Chicago.

Joe Eames

Joe Eames is a Chicago based comic who is a regular at Zanies and Laugh Factory. He is also the host and co-founder of Chicago’s hottest comedy showcase The Humboldt Jungle. Joe got an English degree so we’re all really hoping this comedy thing works out for him.
