Host/MC Drew Lynch OPENER FOR BO BURNHAM, NBC DIVERSITY FINALS 2013, FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB
An opener for Bo Burnham, Drew Lynch was an eager young actor and a classic "chatterbox", notorious for talking a mile a minute. Born in Indiana and raised in Las Vegas, he graduated from the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts with aspirations of becoming a fully articulate film actor. Then something unimaginable happened; at only age 20, during a company softball game, Drew got hit in the throat with the ball causing his vocal chord to paralyze, turning his chattering into stuttering. This life changing injury sparked a passion for writing and performing Stand up Comedy, bringing to life the social hardships of dealing with a newly-found speech impediment. Inspired by the comedy of Louis C.K., Dave Chappell, and the up and coming Samuel J. Comroe, Drew is on a mission to make you laugh. WEBSITE | BOOK

Comedian Dave Reinitz THIS AMERICAN LIFE, BBC, TRAVEL CHANNEL, KPFK,
Dave´s unique perspective and sarcasm gives us a hilarious hour of stand-up comedy that won´t soon be forgotten. Taking nothing for granted Dave challenges "normal" beliefs and expectations. He finds humor wherever common sense is in jeopardy, such as the prescription drug industry, in ordering a simple cup of coffee and genetically engineered food "of course the bugs won´t eat it , it taste like crap". Like a modern day minimalist Robin Hood, Dave steels small things from big companies, not just to get even but to feel even. Well-traveled and semi educated, Dave appeals to the smart and silly sides of the audience. Raised by 1960s radicals in upstate New York, Dave lists George Carlin, Bill Maher, and John Stewart as artistic influences. BOOK

I am a certified Sado-Masochistic Bondage Dominatrix, graduate of BDSMU in Munich. Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Dusseldorf, I knew I wanted to entertain. I would watch Golden Girls and scambled porn simultaneously, huddled underneath one of my Grandmother's hand-made leather blankets.
Stand-Up and Dominatrix-ing are very similar; we aim to please. Sometimes that means telling jokes to break the ice, and sometimes it means breaking ice to tease nipples, but it's always entertainment, dahling.
If you see me live, you may wonder certain things. I only know this because I have been told the following: 'Are you a man or a woman?' 'Is that a real whip', 'My wife and I would like to invite you over for coffee and 'dessert', how much do you charge for 'dessert'?' and 'Wow, are your tits real?' BOOK
