About the Comedians:

Big Kenney
You’ve seen BIG KENNY on Shaquille O’Neal’s “All Star Comedy Jam”, Bounce TV’s “Off The Chain” & Bill Bellamy’s “Who’s Got Jokes!”. He mixes a great blend of down home humor with side splitting everyday situations that makes him one of the best comics touring today!

Damon Sumner has been bringing laughter to people’s lives even before he held a mic on a stage. Since starting standup in Atlanta in 2010, Damon has shared the stage with numerous headliners, nationally and internationally, like Todd Glass, Iliza Shlesinger, Duncan Trussell, George Wallace and many more. Damon has performed overseas and even helped open the first mainland comedy club in China, Kungfu Comedy Club. Fresh off the recent birth of his third child, Damon is seeking to take his comedy career to the next level, one stage at a time.

Joel Byars’ unique style has been developed over years of sharing the stage with veteran comedians like: Ron White, Brian Regan, Kathleen Madigan, Donnell Rawlings, and Margaret Cho. When not touring around the country, Mr. Byars can be found hosting Decatur’s longest running comedy show, Funny Monkey at Java Monkey, every Wednesday. His hosting skills can also be heard on his critically acclaimed Hot Breath! Podcast that NPR describes to be “discovering the desire to be a comedian, their craft and their unifying bond found within the world of stand up comedy.” Comedy legend Paul Provenza has also acclaimed Joel “more than funny – he’s a true and fearless comedian.” Most recently, he was crowned the 2016 National Champion of Search For The One Comedy Competition.
