A decade into his standup career, Steve Gillespie moved from Minneapolis to LA, recently made an appearance on Conan, and released his critically acclaimed first album, Stever Fever. Prior to that, this gentleman degenerate spent most of his life traveling the country regaling audiences with his delightful self-destruction.
Gillespie’s act is a slaphappy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona and coarse yet effective word choice. His hilarious self-flagellation and blistering social commentary has also earned him spots on Fox’s Laughs as well as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. He was a finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic, a runner up for Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laughfest, and his debut album Stever Fever from Rooftop Comedy was named a top-10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.

8 bit comedian and retro video game enthusiast, Scoot Herring, is a what later scientists will call a “gentle bro.” He has been described as “The Ryan Gosling of Portland Comedy”. By one person. that person was himself but Scoot Herring takes what he can get. He’s humble like that. A tall drink of nerd rage who avoids eye contact with other men, Scoot Herring is a comedian that hates things you probably never heard of. This bearded manboy surprises you with his hilarious thoughts on time travel and his borderline creepy love of Disney.
