About the headliner:
Amber Preston is a comedy seductress. Recently named one of “5 Comedians to Watch” in New York Magazine her brassy charisma and keenly honed jokecraft leave audiences powerless not to fall head over heels. From raucous roadhouses to the classiest clubs Preston’s saucy, mischievous charm captivates diehard and casual comedy fans alike.
A proud native of Fargo, ND, Amber took the plunge into standup comedy in 2004 and immediately started turning heads.She brings her “piddly ideas” to the stage where she pokes, prods, and explores them, involving the audience in every step of the instinctive and spontaneous process until they emerge days, weeks, or months later as comedy pearls. Add to this a laundry list of quirky obsessions (mustaches, Hall and Oates, Hall and Oates’ mustaches), and a genuine passion for connecting and having fun with her audience and you have a recipe for true comedy excellence.

In 2007 Gabe decided to followed his dream of being a comedian. 18 months later he got ripped off in his first comedy contest (Runner up, Funniest Person in the Twin Cities.) By 2012 he was a regular in clubs across the Midwest and was voted “Best Comic” by his peers in Minneapolis (The Reapist). He’s been invited to perform at festivals across North America (Asheville, Green Gravel, and Akumal, Mexico). He was honored to the point of embarrassment when his joke about farting was included in Rooftop Comedy’s “Best of Bathroom Humor” compilation. As a founding member of “comedy boy band super group” The Turkeys (City Pages) his work has been featured on the front page of Cracked.com and is on the MyDamnChannel.com comedy network. In 2017 Gabe started the “Profession Confession” podcast. (Top 200 on iTunes) on which he is accompanied by other comedians as they dive in to the dark, gruesome and unusual lifestyles lived by some of the most unique people around.
