Kelly Thewlis has had nothing in her life go to plan, and she’s prepared to tell you about it. With her comedic stories, she invites you to share in the laughter and annoyance of life’s surprises. Originally from Akron, Ohio, she is an international touring comedian who has performed at notable clubs such as The World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles, The Second City in Hollywood and Comedy Cirque in London. She has been featured at the Lady Laughs Festival in Wichita, The Cleveland Comedy Competition, The Burbank Comedy Festival, Laugh Riot Grrrl Festival and Funny Women Fest LA.
Caroline shares personal stories punctuated by her dry delivery, and warm personality. Recipient of the Paper Plate Award for "Silliest" in Kindergarten, she chased that dragon one book-report at a time, eventually finding standup.
Lindsey’s act is a clever intersect of struggles with romance, finances and bodily mishaps, while sardonically calling out her foibles and that of the corporate, dismissive world around her.
Elyse Nylin is a Chicago-based comic. She is the host/producer of You Joke Like a Girl, a monthly all-women’s open-mic and showcase at Volumes Bookcafe in Chicago. Overall, her sets are pretty dynamic with a humorous trip through some personal and very relatable stories. She likes to poke fun at some of her experiences as she has found her authentic self as well as pose some questions about everyday random things.
