Renee Gauthier makes no apologies. Born and raised in Chicago, she got her start at Second City—a comedy theater that produced the likes of Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi—before moving on to other Midwestern sketch troupes. Since moving to Los Angeles, she’s expanded her talents to the screen, appearing on Last Comic Standing and Chelsea Lately after getting her start on Victoria Beckham: Coming to America. Whether addressing the way beauty standards differ by timezone or regaling crowds with tales of her three-legged dog Sugarpoop, Renee keeps it real with witty, relatable stories and absolutely no CGI embedded in her act.<p>

####Marty DeRosa A diehard wrestling fanatic and a lightning-quick wit, Marty DeRosa seems fearless. On stage he doesn't shy away from engaging his audience—even on an uncomfortably personal level. But there's another side to his foul-mouthed stage persona: DeRosa also hosts the podcast Wrestling with Depression, where he and other comedians talk about coping in an honest and hilarious way. Profiled by Time Out Chicago and The AV Club, DeRosa is a rising star with down-to-earth charm and a mind permanently lodged in the gutter.

“Great show. Highly recommended.”
