Skagit-Mount Vernon Kiwanis Club returns with The Original comedy Night.

 

Featured performers this year include

Derek Richards

Derek's act is fast, fresh, and at times, fanatical. He brings the funny with tales about his blue-collar upbringing, his mom's dog, the holidays and dating an exotic dancer.

A veteran of several USO tours, Richards was chosen as one of the first performers at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba after the base began guarding jailed Al-Qaeda terrorists. The comedy tour earned Richards national coverage in Newsweek. He also has performed at U.S. base camps in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Africa.

Travis Nelson

It’s not often the world spits out a 6’9” man containing both the cheerful exuberance of a child and the cynicism of an old man; but when it happens you wind up with a deceptively charming goofball. Yo-yoing between impishly witty and uncommonly sincere, Travis delivers comedy that averages out to be pretty darn delightful.Despite being a younger comic, Travis has made a name for himself touring across the United States and Canada. Whether it's a clean corporate gig, or the late show at a comedy club, he has an act that is sure to please. Travis has been featured on Rooftop Comedy and may be seen at the following comedy clubs and more: Seattle Comedy Underground, Laughs Comedy Spot, Harvey's Comedy Club, Tacoma Comedy Club, Spokane Comedy Club, Jokers Comedy Club, Zanies Comedy Clubs, Helium Comedy Clubs, and the Funny Bone Comedy Clubs.

Chase Mayers

Chase Mayers, stand-up comedian from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has been honing his talents for years in any venue with a microphone and a crowd. He has performed at the South Sounds Music Festival, Black Box Comedy Festival, and Gilda's Laugh Fest. Chase also co-hosts the "Chase & Josh Talk" podcast with fellow comedian Josh Watts. His mixture of storytelling and observations, along with his unique accent, brings the crowd in and makes him a favorite everywhere he performs. Chase has worked with national acts including Jen Kober, T.J. Miller, Garfunkel & Oats, and Theo Van. He currently tours everywhere from the most southern parts of the United States to Canada, making him a true international comedian.

Net proceeds from this show and other fund-raising events are returned to our community for assistance to Skagit area kids and other community needs.
