Robert HawkinsSep 5 & Sep 6
In 2001, he was voted one of the 25 top comics in the country in a poll of comedy club owners nominating candidates for the American Comedy Awards. And, perhaps needless to say (given all these victories, achievements and accolades), he's starred in his own Comedy Central half-hour special, appeared on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," and a slew of other TV shows.
Still, when all is said and done about his work--cable TV, network TV, writing, acting, etc.--Robert Hawkins' first love is performing comedy in a club in front of a live audience, and obviously he's pretty damn good at it. Do you want to miss that? Didn't think so.

I am a professional stand up comedian living in Grand Rapids, MI. I am originally from Chicago. What makes this genius funny is going through more than my fair share of adversity. Not only was I one of five children in a poor household with no daddy around, but i was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease in 1986. I had to wait for a donor. That's right. For me to live...someone had to die. I waited two years on the transplant list....my doctor told me I'd wait three, but I got tired of waiting. I took a job answering phones at the suicide hotline trying to convince people to not jump off a bridge..., but to go home and kill themselves in a tub filled with ice. LO mutherfucking L!!! It's my transplant! My joke!
I apologize for NUTHIN'. I can joke about anything now. I'M ALIVE!!! Now I continue my career as a comedian traveling all around the WORLD. That's right. My travels took me to Afghanistan recently, where I performed for the troops. Trust me...When you can bring laughter to people who are seeing death everyday...YOU KNOW YOU'RE FUNNY, and I can't wait to make all of YOU laugh your asses off!!!
Andrew NorelliSep 19 & Sep 20
Other TV appearances include Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham," and the nationally syndicated comedy round-table "Comics Unleashed," where he also worked as a monologue joke writer. Andrew's natural charisma and sharp material have charmed audiences at comedy festivals around the world.
He won the first annual Las Vegas World Series of Comedy, which only takes place in the US, so the use of the phrase "World Series" is a bit murky. But if it's good enough for baseball, it's good enough for him. He also took second place at the Boston Comedy Festival, and his performance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal was praised in Time Out New York.
He's delighted audiences at Sydney's Comedy Store and Laugh Garage where The (Australian) Daily Telegraph remarked "his show features hair trigger laughs with a deadly aim, all the more so because while some comedians overestimate their own intelligence, Norelli never underestimates ours." Versatility has allowed him to perform in corporate settings too, for companies such as Google and Yahoo.
