Hosted by Terrance Washington
Born and raised in Louisiana, Terrance is known as the likeable misanthrope or the Cajun Lover from another mother. His career in comedy started from a $50 bet he made with a friend at a Barbeque to do comedy at an open-mic and not chicken out! He's still waiting on the $50.00. His unique and hilarious brand of comedy take you through the journey of his surreal unbringing to his current life and his light-hearted and extremely amusing take on our current society, couple that with his razor-sharp wit, down-home likeability and his ability to connect with his audiences from all walks of life, makes for a hysterical experience.
Ellen’s comedy ride is one not to miss. Her humor is autobiographical and told with the lovable bitterness of an east coaster. With topics ranging from her family to being jealous of the wrong things as a child, she tells jokes with a take no prisoners approach. Sarcastic, dark, unapologetic, yet insanely charming, Ellen says what she thinks although most of those thoughts should probably be kept to herself. Ellen has toured all over the US and has been featured at the World Series of Comedy, the SLO Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Featuring Jonny Loquasto
Jonny is a Physical Therapist turned stand-up comedian and sportscaster. As a comedian he has toured around the world telling stories about growing up an awkward fat and the tortures he endured. It was his experience as an actor and comedian that lead Jonny to fulfill another lifelong dream as a play-by-play, ringside announcer for both wrestling and MMA. He splits his time between comedy and the ring, entertaining us in both. At least on stage, nobody will hit him with a chair ... we hope. Jonny is absolutely hilarious and will be a great host our May SLOFunny.
