Kelly Terranova: For a man who bills himself as “The World’s Only Vegetarian NASCAR Fan”, this comedian seems to have energy that you would think could only come from animal protein. When Kelly Terranova hits the stage, audiences are taken on an energetic, hilarious and slightly cynical look at America’s pop culture icons… from our fascination with figure skating to NASCAR to Crocs shoes to riverboat gambling.
A former radio talk show host, Terranova’s material is often culled from the day’s headlines…there’s no time for this “routine” to get routine. Terranova is known as a skilled comedian who features playful audience interaction, making each show unique.
Kelly has been featured on CMT’s Comedy Stage, FOX Sports and the NASCAR Speed Channel. He was a finalist in both the Funny Bone Comedy Club’s World Series of Comedy and Carnival Cruise Line’s Las Vegas Carnival Comedy Challenge. Kelly has appeared with Michael Bolton, The Doobie Brothers, Jim Breuer, Brett Butler and Tim Wilson.
Jay Szech: Jay Szech began his comedy career in July 2002 at Winchester’s Comedy Club in Baltimore. During his senior year at Salisbury University (MD) he was selected by the student body to be the opener for such acts as Daniel Tosh, Bert Kreisher, and Elvira Kurt. As Jay said, “My first paying gig was a coupon for a free oil change”. Upon graduation in 2004 Jay hit the D.C. comedy scene (and survived).
His stories about college, the working world, and life after graduation have thrilled college crowds as well as people who wish they were still in college. During the day he entertained a different crowd as a 10th grade history teacher (it takes alot to scare this man). After spending 2 summers as the on field emcee of MiLB’s Aberdeen IronBirds, Jay relocated to Los Angeles in 2005. He has quickly become a fixture on the scene with appearances at The Comedy Store, Room 5 for White Boy Comedy Productions, HaHa Cafe Comedy Club and Martini Blues. “This is really all just an elaborate ploy to get women to pay attention to me…but I try to keep the act fresh, whether it’s pop culture, college life, or Chuck Norris. I just want to bring a different way of looking at the world that’s fun. It’s all about the people who laid their money down, or snuck in, having a blast.”
