Kristen Toomey

Kristen Toomey

Kristen Toomey is one of the top comedians in her hometown of Chicago. She has built a reputation for being a "comedy powerhouse". She is a charming, hilarious, fearless performer who attacks the stage with wit and brutal honesty about her life. Along with performing close to 300 shows a year, Toomey is also the first female producer/member of the nations premier comedy collective Comedians You Should Know. The collective produces acclaimed, sell out, weekly shows in both Chicago and LA

“Chris Redd’s opening act on the road is fellow Chicagoan Kristen Toomey, who describes herself in her Twitter bio as “I look like Madonna; if she had never never left Michigan. Comedian. Mother. Fucker.” In person, she also looks and carries herself as if Amy Poehler had become a mother and gone wild first before starting comedy. Toomey has a raunchy sense of humor that suggests she doesn’t much care what her two kids (13 and 9) think of her talking this way to strangers, let alone in the house.” - Thecomicscomic

Sohrab Foroozesh

Sohrab Foroozesh

Sohrab Forouzesh is a Chicago based comedian and writer who won't take it personally if you say his name wrong. He moved to the U.S from Iran when he was just eight years old, and his material is heavily influenced by his experiences as a fat Persian kid growing up in America. His rapid-fire delivery paired with his down to earth reliability is what makes him a favorite of the local Chicago comedy scene. He was recently named a finalist for StandUP NBC, and he’s also a regular at the world famous Laugh Factory, Comedy Bar, and Zanies Comedy Club.

Sohrab got his start in comedy while attending Western Michigan University where he won The Kalamazoo Comedy Competition and was a finalist in the TBS and Rooftop Comedy’s National College Comedy Competition. Before graduating college he opened for Nick Swardson and performed at the prestigious Gilda’s Laughfest Comedy Festival. He's an Iranian comedian even your racist uncle will love.
