Jeremy McLellan

A Charleston native since 1985, Jeremy McLellan spends most of his time in the Holy City telling jokes, planning his wedding, and working with people with disabilities. He has performed at the JAIL BREAK arts festival, Charleston Music Hall, Theatre 99, and Threshold Repertory Theatre and recently opened for Jared Logan at Tin Roof, where he also produces the monthly Puppy Dog Show. His material covers a wide range of hot-button topics like politics, gender, race, disability, religion, and Santa Claus. Jeremy’s main goal in life is to postpone death until 2045 when the singularity makes him immortal.

Anthony Driver

Anthony Driver is an Atlanta based comic who is currently active in the Atlanta comedy scene.  He does his best to be honest with himself in order to connect as much as he can with audiences.  While pontificating on matters of life such as approaching women, compulsive eating, and how to manage charm and eloquence while looking like the scariest dude in the room, Anthony makes sure that everybody who watches him has as much fun as he does. Anthony’s comedic style and delivery are influenced by standup comedians such as Corey Holcomb, Patrice O’Neal, Eddie Griffin, Paul Mooney, Bill Hicks, and Sinbad.  If you are into honest humor and a good time, be sure to check out Anthony Driver.

 

Mike Brocki

Chicagoland area native Mike Brocki left the Air Force in 2012 to pursue comedy full time. The son of a Polish immigrant and frequently homeless as a child, Brocki’s story is one of rags to riches—now he’s just waiting for the riches. After vacationing in Charleston and falling in love (with the city) he moved here and instantly became a crowd favorite. From local hot spots such as Theater 99, Charleston Music hall and the JAIL BREAK arts festival, Brocki has become a staple of the Charleston comedy community. With his ability to touch on any topic with a unique perspective, Brocki would describe his comedy as “hauntingly beautiful” and “soulful” while audiences would describe it as witty, clever, silly and most importantly—hilarious.

 

Dusty Slay

Dusty has a smooth southern style that will make you feel so comfortable you have to laugh. Its like cornbread telling you jokes. He’s clever, quick witted and relatable.

Slay was born in Alabama, splitting his time living in a trailer park and on a farm. One would say he was born to be a comedian…or a meth addict. In 2004 Slay moved to Charleston, South Carolina where he began performing Improv Comedy. Improv led to stand up and that led to Dusty performing all over the country. Slay recently relocated to Nashville, where he can be seen performing stand up all over town.

Dusty has had the pleasure of working with several comedians such as: Jeffrey Ross, Jarrod Harris, Michael Ian Black, Pablo Francisco, Nate Bargatze, Keith Alberstadt, Josh Blue (Last Comic Standing), Jared Logan, DC Benny, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Rory Scovel, Carly Aquilino and Jessimae Peluso (MTV’s Girl Code), and Rob Schneider!
