About the Comedian: JOHN ROY
Chicago comic John Roy is a unique voice on modern urban life.
A city dweller all his life, John grew up in Chicago's ethnically diverse Rogers Park neighborhood, the son of an ex Jesuit who worked for Chicago's urban Loyola University, and a psychotherapist. Growing up white and Catholic in a neighborhood full of African Americans, Orthodox Jews, Nigerians, Mexicans, Indians, Pakistanis, and every ethnic and religious group imaginable gave John a unique perspective on getting along in a crowded world. John's life saving heart surgery and altruistic parents gave him an appreciation of the importance of comedy as a means to social change. Chicago's rich cultural heritage, economic differences, and fast paced lifestyle contributed to his observations on how we get by in a changing world. Click here for his Website

About the Comedian: THAI RIVERA
Born in Phoenix, Arizona, Thai Rivera was raised in the smaller, more rural town of Casa Grande, Arizona. When he was 19, he moved to Las Vegas where he lived the true Las Vegas party lifestyle. Tired of the fast pace of Vegas, he moved back to Phoenix and settled into a life of boring office work. He quickly tired of the life as a cubicle dweller, but when he found his way to the local comedy stage, he knew he’d never be bored again. After becoming a finalist in a local comedy contest, he knew it was time to move to a city where he could hone his act. He quickly moved to L.A. where he has become a favorite with audiences, bookers, and his fellow comics. Thai Rivera’s blend of sarcasm, edge, and charm is the can’t-miss recipe for a night full of laughter. Click here for his Website
