Performer bios:
Erin Judge honed her smart, honest and life-affirming comedy style at the world-famous Comedy Studio in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Today she tours all over the world. In 2014, she was selected as one of the Top 100 comedians invited to compete on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. In recent years, Erin has traveled to more than 40 cities in the US and Canada as part of the Pink Collar Comedy Tour, and she has performed internationally in Ireland, Scotland, and on Atlantis Cruise Lines. She has appeared on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, at the Women in Comedy Festival, the New York International Fringe Festival, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and in the pages of the Boston Globe, Time Out New York and the New York Times. Find out more on her website at
Originally from upstate South Carolina, Nick Hart combines that southern story telling tradition w/a keen paranoid eye on society that will have you laughing out loud and thinking to yourself and possibly vice-versa. Having participated in The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in 2011, LaughFest 2014, as well as placing 3rd in the 2014 Madison’s Funniest Comic and opened for acts like Marc Maron and Kyle Kinane,  Nick possesses that stray-dog charm both grandmothers and anarchists alike find endearing. He is an enabler with ideas doing his best, picking up where his heroes left off, bringing the joy.
Sarah Connor‘s stand up comedy illustrates what happens when you try to paint “sexy” over a primer coat of “tomboy.” Her strong, sarcastic humor speaks for women who are still burdened by a functioning appropriate conversation filter. She has been described by drunk audience members as “a sexy Lewis Black” and has been featured at the Limestone Comedy Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, LaughFest, and the Chicago Women’s Funny Festival.
Greg Bach is a fixture on the Milwaukee comedy scene, but has performed all over the country. People from Chicago, Madison, Minneapolis and Loves Park have found his jokes amusing. His comedic style is a three-part recipe: dry wit, life experiences and observations regarding highway billboards (more the third than anything). Greg has had the honor of being called “a guy who looks like Zach Galifinakis and Louis CK had a kid…in a good way”. He has been a featured performer at the Milwaukee Comedy Festival as well as the Derby City Comedy Festival in Louisville, KY.
