The World Famous Mad House Comedy Club Showcase Special
Up to 8 super talented comedians go onstage, back, to back, to back. You get everyone's best 10 or 15 min and if you happen to not like one comedian... you don't have to stare at them for an hour! It's like the All Star Game of Comedy and more fun than one person should be allowed to have 🙂

Clifton Cash
Clifton Cash
Cliff Cash is a North Carolina native born in a small southern town where he was exposed to everything from Nascar to banana and mayonnaise sandwiches. Let’s put it this way, he may have had a rat tail at one point. Growing older and seeing more of the world, Cash soon developed a not so healthy love/hate relationship with the shenanigans of southern small town life finding inconsistencies in many of the cultural, political, social and dogmatic guidelines that once seemed to be set in stone.

After going through what can only be described as rock bottom, Cliff decided he’d try stand up at an open mic thinking it may make him feel better to laugh not knowing it would change his life. What it really did was save his life. Seeing through a new set of eyes and knowing what he was meant to do, Cash took the local comedy scene by storm and was opening for national headliners one month into his comedy career.

Fast forward two years and he was writing and performing multiple different 30 minute sets as a feature for many other clubs around the country and is now headlining some of the best Indy shows, colleges, theatres and clubs in the Southeast. Recent winner of the Port City’s Top Comic 2013, Almost Famous 2013, Regional winner of Comedy Central’s UpNext and runner up/finalist in several other competitions, Cash is just getting started. He has been chosen to perform in the Cape Fear Comedy Festival 2011,2012,2013 and Norfolk Comedy Festival 2014, a finalist for the Martin Grant and chosen to showcase at 2015 NACA south. Cash has opened for amazing comics like Michael Ian Black, Bert Kreischer, Jeff Dye, Kyle Grooms, Todd Glass, Rory Scovel, Alonzo Bodden, Sean Patton, Joe Zimmerman, Michael Che, Lachlan Patterson, Matt Fulchiron, Moshe Kasher, Judah Friedlander, Tom Cotter, Carl Labove, Wyatt Cenac, Seaton Smith and many more. Cliff has professionally recorded many 30, 45 and 60 minute shows which are available for sale at www.cliffcashcomedy.com.

I am now done saying nice things about myself in third person. Thanks for sticking it out. I know that was weird for both of us. Let’s do some laughing.

He has been featured on Laughs on Fox and opened for such comedians as Donnell Rawlings, Theo Von, Michael Kosta, Rodman and Todd Glass.

Kurt Swann
Kurt Swann
For the past 15 years I’ve performed in comedy clubs and for corporate clients across the country. I’ve appeared in all types of venues from smoke-filled bars and comedy clubs to theaters and ballrooms. The audiences have varied greatly and have included everyone from business bigwigs (and some small wigs) to The San Francisco International Comedy Competition.

I’m also host of the long-running comedy show, “West Coast Funnies.”

Besides performing, I also write for the award winning comic strip, “Dustin,” which is syndicated in over 300 newspapers nationwide.
Emma Arnold
Emma Arnold
Emma Arnold is a comedian, author, and beekeeper. She tours regularly, and performed in fifty two cities in 2016. A fan favorite on the Dana Gould Hour, Sklar Bro Country, and Doug Loves Movies, she once followed a eulogy at the Limestone Comedy Festival, after which, Bobcat Goldthwait told her he’d never seen anyone do what she does. She has taken this as a compliment. Her greatly anticipated book, “Notion Sickness”, will be published in the spring of 2017, and her comedy album will be available April 2017 from Rooftop Comedy. When not touring, Emma lives with her six children (yes, six) in Idaho, where she keeps kids and bees with varying degrees of success.
