Tommy Ryman, a semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, is an acclaimed comedian. His oddly-adorable stand-up landed him No. 2 on iTunes comedy charts for his album Having the Time of My
Life. Named Best of the Midwest at Gilda;s Laugh Fest, Tommy grew up in Minnesota jamming on clarinet for his new-age mom and kale-chip-making dad.

Comedian Chris Killian

Saturday, December 3 at 10pm - MUB Ballroom

Comedian Chris Killian                                                                                             

Chris Killian grew up in a small town outside of Nashville, TN.  He was just a small guy with big dreams, but luckily for you, none of those dreams materialized and he decided to pursue stand-up comedy. Armed with a guitar, Chris’ humor has been described as “edgy and smart,” but that’s probably only because he likes wearing a sweater vest. Make no mistake though – Chris’ innocent and laid-back demeanor compounded with his aggressive hilarity consistently catches crowds off-guard.

Chris has worked with everyone from Last Comic Standing’s Jon Reep to SNL’s Collin Jost. His comedic songs, which often use acoustic melodies to launch into an array of satirical and self-deprecating lyrics, have been met with much approval from Chris’ rapidly growing fan base. Plus, there’s a rumor going around that catching one of Chris’ shows automatically makes you cooler. Maybe it’s just a rumor, but what if it isn’t? Are you really willing to risk it?
