Host Kevin Haas is a full-time journalist that hails from Rockford Illinois. When he's not in the News Tower, he's at home thinking of weird stuff to say to strangers. Kevin can be seen in bars and comedy clubs all over the Midwest.

Guest Feature Scott Galvin has performed all throughout the Midwest entertaining crowds of all types and sizes with his dry and witty approach to comedy since 2011. He has opened for Chris Pontius, Preston Lacey, Dave Englund and Weeman from Jackass, as well as Randy and Mr. Lahey from Trailer Park Boys. Galvin has also opened for veteran touring comedians Scott Long, Kris Shaw, Russ Williamson, Peter-john Byrnes and Vince Carone. Known for his one liners, Galvin's soft spoken and shoegazing delivery has made him a favorite among the Midwest comedy scene. Scott has headlined Prime Time Nine at the WIP Theater in Chicago and has performed at Still Not Friday in Aurora, IL and A O.K. Comedy in St. Charles.

Main Feature David Rader has been performing all across the Midwest for seven years, starting at Laugh Comedy Club in Bloomington, IL. He moved to Chicago two years later to pursue comedy. He has opened for Stewart Huff, Dave Landau, and Shane Mauss, and has also featured at the Milwaukee Comedy Festival as well as the Cream City Comedy Festival. He was also recently named one of Rachel McCartney’s five favorite comics in Chicago, according to “Brendon Being Brendon.”

Headliner Mike O’Keefe is a young comic who prides himself on his original brand of self-deprecating jackasserey and a tireless work ethic. A former radio host, punk rock lead singer and college student (Graduated. Boom.), O’Keefe has made a name himself in the national comedy scene with multiple appearances on Sirius XM Radio and the new NBC streaming platform Seeso. He has been vaunted as a “Comic to Watch” in both the Chicago Tribune and Detroit’s 944 Magazine. O’Keefe has also had the privilege of sharing the stage with such acts as Maria Bamford, Bo Burnham and Michael Ian Black, who were all very nice and complimentary to him. When Mike is not touring the nation’s top comedy clubs and smelly dive bars, he makes his home in Chicago where he has adopted the nickname “The Pride of Rockwell Avenue”. He performs regularly all over the city in a myriad of different shows, including Comedians You Should Know and Chicago Underground Comedy in addition to enjoying the local cuisine immensely. His energetic stage presence and irreverently charming material keeps audiences on their toes and in stitches(yes, both of those things). With influences ranging from Don Rickles to Steve Martin to Patton Oswalt, it’s easy to see that Mike has heard of at least 3 other comics.
