John Heffron

February 5 - 8

Blue-collar, middle-class comedy at its finest. Orignially from Detroit, John started his stand-up career as a student at Eastern Michigan University. Comedy has taken him around the world, but he's still rooted in the Midwest. For the last two decades, audiences have been along for the ride as John has transformed from a hard-partying undergrad into a husband and stepfather.

Most people recognize John as the winner of the second season of "Last Comic Standing," NBC's breakout stand-up comedy competition. He's also all over Comedy Central, VH1, and the late, great "Chelsea Lately." And just last year he showed up on best-seller lists with "I Come to You From the Future," his book of advice for the 20-something crowd.

    You're Hired!

    But hope springs eternal! You can see Gilbert doing the job he was made for, May 15-17 at the Improv.

  • Corey Holcomb

    Corey throws down brutally funny commentary on relationships and romance, and we're amped to have him back May 28-31.

  • Todd Glass


    You can't stop Todd Glass, and we're not even sure if you can contain him. Todd was an alt-comedy superstar even before the Internet, and he's still going strong.
