Stand-Up Comedy Federation presents
Clash of Comics
The Stand-Up Comedy Federation is changing the way live comedy is performed. The Stand-Up Comedy Federation combines short comedic sets from the comedians of the Federation with the drama of Pro-Wrestling. Tim Sullivan became the first Intercontinental Stand-Up Comedy Federation Champion and has held the belt ever since. He has been challenged by the like of The Baller an aggressive comedian who will stop at nothing to become champion. He has also been challenged by The Brucej a deranged, unstable comic with multiple personalities who uses his creepiness to not only scare the other comedians but also frighten the audience. The Baller and The Brucej have recently combined their talents to become the SCF Tag Team Champions known as The Sex Boys. We cannot forget to mention the unknown comic known as Napoleon. Napoleon wears as mask and most of his jokes don’t make any sense which is why he uses his manager Hardcore Heather to let people know when to laugh. Napoleon is so unusual that you may find yourself questioning what is happening and why you are laughing. Clash of the Comics is where many of these feuds will be settled with all the belts on the line its sure to be an action packed night of comedy and entertainment, like nothing you have seen in Stand-Up comedy before.
“I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.
Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.
York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a compliment to all three master comics.
Travis Howze is an internationally touring comedian and motivational speaker who spent 14 years in the military and emergency services as a U.S. Marine, Police Officer and Firefighter. Whether performing at corporate events and fundraisers to top comedy clubs, colleges and multiple tours overseas for our troops, Travis has become a comedic demand in multiple arena’s and always leaves his audiences craving more!
Known as the military and emergency services voice of comedy, the topics of Travis’ humor are limitless: from being raised in South Carolina to married life and fatherhood to his time in uniform and much more. Whether dodging bullets, chasing bad guys, or running into burning buildings, Travis is always FUNNY UNDER FIRE!
Brett Erickson is a comedian based in Los Angeles, CA. As host of one of L.A.'s most popular weekly shows, Punch at the Pikey, Brett tackles the week's news with a bold and brash, tell-it-like-it-is style. Combining a razor-sharp wit with a lovably acerbic tongue, Brett takes on topics most comics are too afraid to go near. If you like your comedy in the tradition of Stanhope and Hicks, you'll love Brett.
