About the headliner:
Described by San Francisco Weekly as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers,” Grant was once a collegiate soccer player. He decided to pursue a career on stage instead of on the field, and that decision’s been rewarded by being chosen as a New Face in comedy at the Just For Laughs Festival, winning the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and being a finalist in the Big Sky Festival.

He plays a fun role in the second season of The Comedy Central show “Corporate” and stars in the upcoming feature film Killer Kate! As well as performing in a number of other prestigious comedy festivals including The Great American Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Grant’s performed on the TV show Comics Unleashed. He has appeared on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show, is heard regularly on Sirius/XM satellite radio, and has been a guest on numerous popular podcasts including Doug Loves Movies.

The film he wrote and starred in, Interview Date, was eligible for a short film Academy Award. Funny or Die, MSN, Huffington Post, and others are among the sites that have featured Grant’s sketch videos on their home pages. You might also recognize him from a number of national commercials including AT&T, Johnsonville Sausage, CiCi’s Pizza, and more.

About The Comedians:

Jeff Pfoser owns two minivans, enjoys top-shelf root beer and prefers eating breakfast food for dinner. A charismatic family man whose stories take surprise twists and turns, Pfoser walks the likeable-vs.-offensive tightrope with true panache, and his material will make you laugh or cringe (sometimes both). He's appeared in the Boston Comedy Festival, Minneapolis’ 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival and Mexico's annual Akumal Comedy Festival, and was a finalist in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 Joke Joint Comedy Club’s Minnesota’s Funniest Person Contest.

Trevor Anderson is a Minneapolis based stand up comedian who has been making a name for himself throughout the Midwest over the past half decade. His intelligent and charmingly enthusiastic approach to comedy helps him win over almost any audience. Trevor has performed at the Aspen Comedy Festival where he was a winner of the 2009 Rooftop Comedy College Competition. He has also played an integral part in the 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival.

David Harris is a nationally touring, regionally Emmy Award Winning comedian, magician, actor, and host. Harris has entertained North American audiences for over 20 years with over 2000 live performances to date. He regularly appears at clubs, colleges, corporate events, theaters, arts centers, alternative rooms and other top venues across the U.S. and Canada. Harris has been lucky to share the stage with some of the best in the business including legendary Louie Anderson, Bobby Slayton, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Ben Bailey, to name a few. Based in his hometown of Minneapolis, Harris recently won 2017’s Minnesota’s Funniest Person Contest. Harris’ personal and person-driven approach to the topics of work, family, relationships, and anxiety make his act relatable to virtually anyone. Harris is fun, relatable, creative, interactive, and most of all – hilarious.

About the Comedians:

Trish Cook is a Minneapolis-based comedian and public speaker. She has experience running and booking shows having worked with Parkway Theater booking talent as well as hosting and running the Bunny's Showcase. Trish brings a unique perspective to the stage having been raised by very eccentric parents in south Minneapolis. Her style of comedy can be described as home brewed, often finding the silly in everyday interactions.

Mike Earley presents himself in a way that takes audiences by surprise. With an unassuming demeanor, he delivers material that strives to express his vision as a comedian: "I want to be myself to such a degree, that it shows other people its alright to be who they are and not shiver in the shadow of who they wish they were". With an experience that spans a spectrum of clubs, colleges, bars, organizations, and even a house party or two, Mike has entertained audiences of all backgrounds. Mike has become a prominent talent in the Twin Cities, performing frequently at Acme Comedy Club and is the winner of the Funniest Person in Minnesota Contest. His videos about working construction in Minnesota have been viewed by millions online.

Senthil Rajasekharan is a standup comedian from Minneapolis/St. Paul. He started doing comedy in 2010. He works at clubs, bars and other venues across the midwest. He works as a software engineer by day and considers himself a semi-pro Table Tennis player. His favorite TV show is Jeopardy!
