About the event

Zako Ryan is a world traveling comedian, actor, host, gamer, reader, lifter, and cartoon enthusiast. He was raised simultaneously in both Beaufort, South Carolina, and Toledo, Ohio where he paid close attention to cultural differences and began his act as a cross country class clown...(very little pay).

After a brief enlistment in the Air Force, Zako graduated Engineering from the University of Toledo and thought "well I hated both of those so maybe I'll try comedy?". Since then, he's made people laugh in over 30 states and 4 countries, including stages of comedy royalty such as Laugh Factory, Improv, SideSplitters, Zanies, and more.

Zako Ryan thinks "we're all full of shit" and as a result, this southern charmer never asks for forgiveness while exposing his versions of truth. Zako puts on a show that can appeal to any demographic as his humor aims to set aside cultural differences to find common ground through his preferred medium: Laughter. 

Aaron Putnam is an American touring standup comedian, currently based out of Chicago. You can catch him at his home club "Laugh Factory", as well as many other comedy clubs like Zanies. Aaron is also the founder of "Stand up in Recovery" where he brings laughter to drug/alcohol treatment centers across the country.

His comedy is said to be disarmingly funny and vulnerable. Aaron feels blessed to have opened for some of the best comics working today. He says he gets these opportunities because he is the best hang in the biz. He also has a Podcast with his lovely wife called "The Manchild & The Yogi.
