Great at thinking on his feet, Lawhead is able to blend personal experiences, fresh subjects and facial expressions all ranging from topics about sports & life to questioning relationships and most off, himself. The youngest of seven children Jason always had a built-in audience and would often mimic household life by doing impressions of his siblings and parents, which he brings to the surface today. Jason has become a fixture opening for Bill Burr on the road as well as beginning to headline himself.

    Erik Myers

    The favorite son of Baltimore, Erik Myers has been killing audiences with his fast-paced, high-energy comedy for the last few years. It really has to be seen in person to be believed (this isn't Erik writing this paragraph, by the way)--these are the kinds of jokes you'll try to pass off as your own when talking to your co-workers the next day, you bastard. The concepts (partying, women, family, weighing about 115 pounds soaking wet) are familiar, but no one does them with Erik's style. Erik has been a regular on the 98 Rock morning show in Baltimore. He has won stand-up competitions at the DC Improv, the Baltimore Improv and the Tampa Improv.
