Sat, May 1st 9:00pm - Josh Blue, Derek Hughes and Mike Head
Josh Blue following his groundbreaking win on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in the summer of 2006, he has risen through the ranks from promising up-and-coming comic to well-established and sought-after headliner at venues throughout the country. Josh made his debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in the summer of 2018 followed by an appearance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal on the William H. Macy Gala. The year ended with him recording his fifth one-hour comedy special, Broccoli, at his home club, Comedy Works in Denver, CO, which is now available to stream on Amazon, iTunes, VUDU and additional platforms. He continues to spread laughter and break down stereotypes of those with disabilities one sarcastic and though-provoking joke at a time.
The live performances of celebrated conjurer, “Stand Up Magician” Derek Hughes, have been lauded by audiences and critics alike, with the New York Times calling him “thoroughly entertaining.” Hughes has performed his magic on MTV, VH1, Comedy Central, CW's Penn & Teller: Fool Us and the Ellen DeGeneres Show. He's a consulting producer on TRUtv’s hit magic series, “The Carbonaro Effect” and was atop ten finalist on NBC's “America’s Got Talent”.
Mike Head started as a stand-up comedian on a dare in 2006. His co-workers and family members thought his foolishness and celebrity impersonations needed some sort of platform. Most recently Mike was a 2019 finalist for Stand Up for NBC. In 2013 he was featured as a finalist in the American Black Film Festival’s Comedy Wings Competition. Mike regularly performs at clubs, colleges and corporate events across the country from Pennsylvania to California and his comedy segment can be regularly heard on Cleveland's station 93.1 WZAK. Mike is an experienced actor who has performed with some of Northeast Ohio’s most historic theatre companies. He made his television acting debut in the Lifetime feature film “With This Ring” and very shortly after in an independent film called “Jerico.” Other tv credits includes LAUGHS Tv on fox, Laff Mobs “We Got Next” and Tru TV’s “Laff Tracks”.
