This Week at Laffs: Co-Headliners!
August 28 & 29
- Jason Resler is a stand-up comedian and a writer. He has also done a little bit of bad acting.
Never the less he has performed improv with the late Academy Award winner Robin Williams in front of a sold out theatre. He is a well decorated US Naval war veteran, a father, and he has resigned from the US Postal Service, voluntarily, after numerous disagreements with management.
He listens to 80's metal bands. He is a baseball fanatic, a road warrior, and an alternative highschool spelling bee champion. Hailing from Sacramento Jason is blue-collar from the north, laid back yet enthusiastic, and more self-educated than un-educated.
Jason has wanted to be a comedian ever since he was convinced, mostly by his own coaches, that he'd probably never be able to hit a big league curve ball. Now he headlines at top comedy clubs, resort casinos, universities, and theatres nationwide with over 200 showdates anually since '98.
Trenton Davis is beginning to make his mark on the Chicago comedy scene as one of the funniest comedians alive. Diverse audiences and fellow comedians are drawn to his charismatic style and witty material like a moth to a flame and find themselves wanting more than one set can offer.
Trenton was raised in a dual parent household in a rural county of Greensboro, NC. He attended a high school that was 95% white and then followed that up with attending a historically black college. His unique experiences have shaped his views and created one of the best comedic minds of our generation. Trenton looks at everyday problems and issues (i.e. war on Iraq, dating, politics) and offers hysterical, non everyday solutions. Critics have said the following: "Trenton is funny as hell, definitely star status!"
Trenton has performed at numerous night clubs in the Chicagoland area like the Improv, Riddles, Comedy Shrine and can be seen regularly at the Edge Comedy club in downtown Chicago. His largest credits to date are winning the talent competition for Norwegian Cruise Lines in 2003 and performing at the famous Laugh Factory in Hollywood, CA.
