Hosted by 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.
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.
