Bonkerz Comedy Club, located inside Palace Station, has booked some of the nation’s top comedians for appearances through March.
James Yon with Drew Barth
Florida native and professional chef, Yon is one of America’s hottest up-and-coming young comedians. His comedy styling has evolved into a mixture of hilarious stand-up, dead-on musical impressions and some of the most outrageous dance moves guests have ever seen. Yon’s TV credits include appearances on HBO and NBC’s “Stand Up for Diversity.”
Mike McCarthy with Grant Lyon
Mike McCarthy has a high-energy style of humor that leaves the audience bouncing off the walls and gasping for breath. His explosive brand of humor and frenetic pace quickly earned him a reputation as a crowd slayer, and the colorful alias he still carries today – The Comedy Barbarian. On stage, McCarthy pushes the envelope every night with material that covers weird sex, to drugs and alcohol abuse. His raucous, no-holds-barred act never fails to get the crowd fired up. McCarthy has appeared on both Showtime and Comedy Central.
Chris Edgerly with Justin McClure
Chris Edgerly is widely recognized for his voice which is featured in several animated films, TV shows and video games including “Happy Feet,” “TMNT,” “Celebrity Deathmatch” and “Halo 3.” When not doing voiceover work, Edgerly travels the country performing his first love, standup comedy.
Special co-headline with Lang Parker and Dava Krauss
Lang Parker is the funniest farm girl to hit the comedy circuit in a long time. Audiences are doubling over with laughter when she tells how hard it is to be feminine when raised by a backwoods father and three brothers. Parker gained national attention on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” where she was a favorite of Judge Buddy Hackett.
Dava Krauss can easily play any crowd in any situation. She is also a talented comedy writer. Krauss is one of the youngest comics to have many of her jokes chosen and published for a new book entitled, “She’s So Funny” by Judy Brown. Additional credits include appearances on the CW and her comedy featured on XM Radio’s “National Lampoon Comedy Radio.”
Ron Feingold with Bear
Ron Feingold combines a very funny standup comedy act with an incredible singing voice to bring you great song parodies and an evening full of laughs. During his career, Feingold has opened for the likes of REO Speedwagon, Grand Funk Railroad and Loverboy as well as performed at numerous comedy clubs, universities and casinos. Feingold has appeared on FOX network, among others.
Artie Fletcher with Bob Meddles
Jokingly known as New York City’s “Bad Boy of Comedy,” Artie Fletcher has covered the gamut of entertainment. From standup comedy to TV and movie appearances, he has done it all, including comedy cooking bits with renowned Chef Emeril Lagasse.
