Headliners will include:
Dave Evans is an accountant turned comedian. While that combination may not sound like it adds up, Dave has performed all over the Northeast, including the best clubs in New York City and Philadelphia. His dry, sarcastic humor is a cross between Jerry Seinfeld and Ray Romano. Dave is a regular in Atlantic City with ACJokes.com, making appearances at the Playground Pier comedy club, as well as Anthem Lounge inside the Tropicana.
Jerrold Benford is becoming a fixture on the eastern comedy circuit. Born and raised in Virginia, Benford began his career in New Jersey, where he quickly made a name for himself at New Jersey and New York’s finest clubs, as well as featuring and headlining at clubs, colleges and private functions all over the tri-state area. Benford’s distinctive perspective on dating and marriage topics combines with a high-energy, friendly delivery to create clever content, and his quirky, unique writing style has wowed crowds. He is a regular performer with ACJokes.com.
Steve Cooper performed more than 2,500 shows in the early 1990s and recently has made a return to the world of stand-up. He has opened for Denis Leary and Andrew “Dice” Clay and many other top acts. His humor — considered “creative stupidity” — blends his observations and social commentary. He also has a successful blog called Cooper Talk, where he skewers society and shares his views on life, while also interviewing comedians, actors, athletes and more (coopertalk.net).
