Caitlin Weierhauser is pretty fun. This Los Angeles, by way of Portland, comedian serves up coach vibes and delightfully unhinged enthusiasm. Often political, frequently personal, and entirely too tantrum-prone, Caitlin delivers arguments with equal parts glee and rage. They give the worst news about society with a dimpled grin and pointed outbursts.
Caitlin has appeared at JFL New Faces 2018, The Benefits of Gusbandry (Amazon Prime), and will be in the upcoming Disney+ movie, Timmy Failure.

Like you, dear reader, Woody Shticks grew up a competitive handbell ringer in a Puritan cult in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
These days, Woody Shticks is a stand-up storyteller and flesh peddler based in Seattle, Washington. Five-time Bawdy Storytelling favorite, one third of The Libertinis, and forty pounds of fun in a two pound sack, he's been hailed as "razor-sharp" by Seattle Star, "comedy gold" by BroadwayWorld, and "too gay to book anything but children's theatre" by his college acting teacher.
Woody unashamedly harnesses the unruly subject of sex - the good, the bad, and the ugly - to confront power and privilege while getting to the bottom of respectability politics. Uncovering our basest parts is dirty work, but a little fruit makes it all easier to swallow. Never frozen, usually sweet, and always fresh, Woody invites conversation and incites collaboration to bring warmhearted weirdos out of the shadows and into the streets.
Woody has taught master classes at Seattle FringeCon and Intiman's Emerging Artist Program, headlined Intersections and the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival, and produced new theatre and dance in New York, Seattle, Portland, and on his childhood waterbed. Woody will bring his solo shows Schlong Song, Maniac, and Who Cares! to anyone with a bare stage and thirst for shenanigans.

Reilly Hoy hales from Twin Falls Idaho. He brings his charm, wit, and general I don't give a f*** attitude to the stage. Touching on topics such as math, religion, and looking like the boy next door Reilly was the winner of the 2018 Boise's Funniest Person. He performs all over the Treasure Valley, and hosts a secret show once a month. He'll leave you laughing with jokes maybe not meant for the dinner table.
