Ryan Singer: Ryan Singer is the rarest of breeds: A comic’s comic who electrifies mainstream audiences with material that is both uncompromising and unpretentious. The premeditated chaos of Singer’s comedy can now be heard on his debut album, HOW TO GET HIGH WITHOUT DRUGS, an intense exercise in wordplay, improvisation, and storytelling recorded at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, OH. Those who enter Singer’s world will be rewarded with knowledge of the connections between dimwitted hunters and Tyra Banks, cookies and racial tension, and even gay marriage and dragons, courtesy of a comedian who expertly connects insanity and brilliance.
He has appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show Bob & Tom and was a regional finalist in Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight.
Peter Banachowski: Raised in the small town of Oxford MI, Peter started stand up in Detroit at age 17 while working many jobs and earning a degree in mathematics.

Banachowski's style of comedy is very conversational and stream of thought.
