Featuring: Hari Rao
Comedian. Musician. Proficient in Microsoft Excel. Hari Rao's comedy draws upon 45 years of life experience to highlight the peculiarities of everyday living that we simply accept as given, as well as dissecting his own personal experiences that can best be described as "are you being serious??". His adventure in standup began in 2017 while his experience in entertainment spans two decades as a recording artist, a reoccurring theme in his comedy (the song “Rewind” by his band I Fight Dragons can be heard as the theme song to ABC’s "The Goldbergs"). A clean(ish) comic with a tinge of absurdity, Hari has a broad appeal and has opened for a wide range of comedy club favorites including Jake Johannsen, Sam Morril, and Chris Kattan. Hari is a regularly featured performer at Zanies Comedy Clubs in Chicago. @iamharirao on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter

Jay Lafarr & Big Al Gonzales 12-24-2022
Headliner: Jay Lafarr
The son of an immigrant mother and Native American father, Jay LaFarr was raised in a home that fostered his love of America and massive, crippling guilt and self-doubt. This comes through in his standup comedy, which is funny, honest, and at times disturbing. Performing over 300 sets a year for the last decade and with material that can be relatable to most any of us. A writer for children's shows and a staple of the Texas film scene, you may have seen him on Amazon Prime or Netflix, but most likely in one of the dozens of venues he performs at every year. He regularly performs with the comedians of Humor for Heroes, a nonprofit that raises money for various US veteran's groups.
Featuring: Big Al Gonzales
Big Al was the winner of the "Funniest in South Texas" comedy competition in 2018. He has also performed on Texas Public Radio's storytelling show "Worth Repeating", and has been seen on Amazon Prime, Food Network, Game Show Network, NBC, and made his stand-up comedy debut on KOFY TV20.
Scott Hardy 12-31-2022
Headliner: Scott Hardy
A veteran of stand up comedy, Scott Hardy has performed in comedy clubs, colleges, corporate events, cruise ships…basically, anything that starts with the letter “C”. He’s opened for Jimmy Buffett, Dolly Parton, Mel Torme, Chicago, and many more. Scott has worked closely with The Ellen Degeneres Show for the past 6-7 years making sure his Nana, Gladys Hardy, gets through loud and clear to Ellen. Some even speculate that Scott is Gladys!
His shows are consistently positive, and his material is proven, but you never know quite where he’s going to go.“I love improvisation and discovering the funniest moments with the audience. After 27 years of performing stand up, this is how I’ve never grown tired of my own act. Also, just as impressive, is how I've managed to successfully remain undiscovered!"
