Our host for both Friday and Saturday night’s performances, this Ohio farm boy, turned airline mechanic, turned comic, is becoming one of the comedy industry’s rising stars. In 2012, Sid finally made his debut on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio show and was an immediate hit. He’s now is a regular and anticipated guest. In early 2014, the audiences at the San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival voted Sid Davis “Best in Fest” for the THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR. A week later, comedy legend Joan Rivers, looking for an opening act, viewed Sid’s clip and told her manager, “He’s terrific! I want him!” Sid’s volatile combination of A.D.D., needless curiosity, imagination and a wavering ego are the fuel for his side splitting tales. You will be howling and understand why his grade school teacher wife views him as a child left behind.
Keith Alberstadt grew up the son of a Vanderbilt professor and a craft artist. The result…a very clever comic with sharp perception, creative sarcasm, and a treasure trove of unique material. His likable personality and down-to-earth charm invite people into his brand of humor — one that is smart but not brainy and relatable but not hacky.
While performing, Keith takes pride in laughing at himself and his “inner dork”, which he demonstrates is something in all of us. Current events, popular trends, personal details…Keith shares his witty insight on everything, all the while doing it with a mischievous smile that quickly becomes infectious.
A regular performer for the U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, Keith has been described as “absolutely hilarious” by Armed Forces Entertainment and “a hidden gem” by the Boston Globe. He’s also a contributing writer for Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, National Lampoon and various online magazines. After you see his show, you’ll understand why Keith is quickly breaking through the comedy ranks as a must-see performer!
Andy made his television debut on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham..

Who can turn the world on with her smile? Mary Tyler Moore. But who can turn the world on with her hysterical stories, original humor, and boisterous characters? Kerri Louise. High-energy, commanding and versatile–but enough about her sex life–Kerri Louise can entertain any audience with her warmth and razor-edge wit. She just filmed the hit, new, stand-up show “Gotham Live” on AXS-TV.
Kerri was a regular correspondent on the Oprah Winfrey Show and that lead her to be a guest on the very first episode of The Dr. OZ Show. NBC took Kerri all the way to the finals in the show Last Comic Standing. Her performance on that show prompted The Women’s Entertainment Network to make her the star of her own reality show called “TWO FUNNY”. Howard Stern said,“She needs a sitcom!” Other guest appearances include… TV Guide’s “Stand-Up In Stilettos”, NBC’s “The Apprentice”, The Montel Show, Nickelodeon’s “Nick Mom Night Out”, Comedy Central, NBC’s “Access Hollywood”, ABC’s “The View” among many more. Part Generation-X, part Girl-Next-Door, Kerri Louise is a pleasure to watch. Her movie debut in The Next Karate Kid addicted her to show-biz, hence her move from her hometown of Boston to New York City. This is where she quickly established herself as a player in the top comedy clubs and festivals like Montreal, HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and most recently the Lucille Ball Comedy Festival. These credits plus her popular webisode on youtube has made Kerri Louise an attraction. Working throughout the country and leaving her audiences applauding, Kerri Louise is the comic to watch.
To say Lachlan Patterson is having one of his better years would be an understatement. Most recently, he finished as the runner up on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. With other recent television appearances on FX’s Legit, Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 and his sets on The Tonight Show and Late Late Show with Drew Carry, it seems like people are finally becoming aware of just how talented this Canadian born comedian really is. Lachlan’s laid back style has given him a unique stage personality that has audiences charmed from beginning to end. His CD “Jokes to Make Love to” was a top 10 release on Rooftop Comedy and his live shows have drawn fans all across the globe. When not touring or preparing a set for television, Lachlan records his weekly podcast “The Kooks of Komedy” where he talks candidly about his personal life, goals and his passion for surfing.
What kind of comic is Keith? Well, he’s the guy you want to sit next to at a boring meeting. He’s clever, insightful, and a little bit eye-opening. His comedy is truth with a twist. Indy’s NUVO said, “Keith McGill has a style that is smooth and temperate, and lacks any gaudy gimmicks or catch phrases, making him one of the best standup acts within earshot… His material is positive and PG-13, yet still intelligently critical of the comical absurdities [of life]…The Louisville native is impossible not to like.” As well as being popular internationally on Royal Caribbean Cruises, Keith has appeared on BET and CMT, and is a Bob and Tom Show favorite, as well as a much sought-after entertainer for corporate events.
Bengt Washburn was born in Salt Lake City, Utah but grew up in a large Utah town (1,200 people) as the fifth child in a small Mormon family (7 children). Bengt is married to an officer in the United States Air force. They have lived in 6 different cities over the last eleven years. Most recently he moved to Springfield, Virginia (Washington D.C.) after living in Stuttgart, Germany for 3 years.
