Detroit-based comedian Josh Adams has performed on BET’s Apollo Live and just released his debut stand-up comedy album Miseducation of Josh Adams.
Born in Lima, Peru, Diego Attanasio has quickly become one of the most notable acts in Michigan and throughout the Midwest for his rapid-fire delivery and on-stage charisma.
Dubbed a rising star in Detroit’s comedy scene by 101.9 WDET, Sam Rager has mastered the blend of personal storytelling with huge laughs on her debut stand-up comedy album Trigger Warning.
Born and raised in Detroit, Jeffrey Ford is one of the most talented comedians working in the city today.
A huge presence in metro Detroit’s comedy scene, producing several local shows and telling jokes from the perspective of a gay man. He has opened for comedians Jen Kirkman, Joe Mande, Guy Branum and Eddie Pepitone.
A transfemine and queer comic living in Detroit, Kai Quix is the host of the LGBTQ comedy night “Quix, Women and Queers.” Quix was profiled by WDET in 2018.
