MIKE LEBOVITZ

@mikelebovitz - New York City, NY

Mike Lebovitz began his comedy career at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He's been delighting and confounding audiences with his unique brand of wild-eyed humor ever since.  Equal parts lovable and absurd, Mike's act careens from topic to topic like a runaway freight train with some questionable couplings. Audiences have described the experience as "spontaneous," "joyful" and "a little terrifying." A burgeoning international star, Mike was featured on Season 9 of NBC's Last Comic Standing and has offended nostrils in both Montreal and Switzerland as a New Face of the Just for Laughs Festival and as Godfather of the Montreux International Comedy Festival respectively.

@ZachMartina - Ann Arbor, MI

A family that supports him, an inspiring & beautiful wife, not to mention well behaved children who adore him; that’s the American dream, right? Not if you’re Zach Martina, then it’s a recipe for skepticism and anxiety. At some point during the show, you’ll find yourself wondering, “I don’t know what he’s freaking out about but it’s pretty funny.” Featured in festivals such as the Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, San Francisco’s Sketchfest and Best of the Midwest in 2017’s Gilda’s Laughfest and touring with Rory Scovel; Zach brings his big energy to crowds across America delivering dark jokes in a delightful manner while pointing the finger of blame at every single person, except himself.

MO MITCHELL

@captmander - Bloomington, IN

In September of 2013, fresh out of high school at the tender age of 18, Mo Mitchell began her dark descent into the world of stand up comedy. And now, at the weathered age of 20, she continues that descent, only to bring you not one, not two, but probably three poop jokes, at LEAST.  Mo can often be seen performing at The Comedy Attic and other venues within a 60 mile radius, but other credits include: Thanksgiving, her dad's garage, and that one time she was really drunk at a party. This is her Limestone Comedy Festival debut, and she hopes her pain will bring you a chortle or two. Remember: she needs this more than you do.

Peluffo has been featured in the Women in Comedy Festival, was runner up in the StandUp NY Comedy Competition, and a finalist in the Trial By Laughter Festival that airs on the Comcast Network this spring.  Peluffo has also been seen on NBC's Seeso in 'New York's Funniest" and performed with Gilbert Gottfried, Gary Gulman, and the late Kevin Meany, to name a few.  She has performed everywhere from the Stand and New York Comedy Club in the Big Apple to clubs all across the country talking about her love of “dating,” and her lack of self control. Peluffo is a former soccer player who dropped the wind sprints but kept the thighs as well as the drinking habit. No subject is off limits, however, she did make a promise to her mother that she would never, ever discuss that one time she took those ‘whorish, yet tastefully executed’ photos for a guy she used to bang in the military. She may be a patriot, but a promise is a promise.

TOMMY RYMAN

@tommyryman - Los Angeles, CA

Tommy Ryman grew up with a new-age, folksinging mother and a traditional, Lutheran insurance-agent father. This XY equation evidently equals: acclaimed comedian. Ryman has earned the title of Semifinalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Roseanne Barr, a professed fan, raves she has “never seen anything like [Tommy] before in [her] whole life, [he is] one-of-a-kind, fantastic!” Ryman’s act can be described as absurdist and clever, masked behind a very likable and innocent demeanor, often thought of as disturbingly adorable. He is a favorite among audiences at top clubs and colleges around the nation, and he is regularly featured on  SiriusXM, and iheartradio.  Ryman recently won the title of Best in the Midwest at the prestigious Gilda’s Laugh Fest. He was invited to perform at the Great American Comedy Festival at the Johnny Carson Theater.  Ryman has two albums on StandUp! Records.   Ryman’s unique humorous story telling and comedy stylings should not be missed.
