John Branyan, as seen on Dry Bar Comedy, will headline the evening, beginning at 7 p.m. John is featured on nine recorded comedy projects with people like Ken Davis, David Jeremiah, Ted Cunningham and Tim Hawkins. He has performed in Canada, Japan, and every state in the U.S. His Shakespeare version of The Three Little Pigs was a viral sensation, and his book “A Triune Tale of Diminutive Swine” is in its third reprinting.  When John stepped onto a tiny stage in the early 1990s, he thought his interest in comedy was just a phase — he thought he would get the whole thing out of his system. But, more than 25 years later, he still loves making people laugh with his style of speaking that won’t leave a filthy residue. 

As seen on Dry Bar Comedy, BET, ESPN and more, Marty Simpson will close out the night beginning around 8 p.m. Marty has performed on three continents and in 46 of the 50 United States. Marty was a finalist in the critically acclaimed television series, "Trial By Laughter," and was named a festival favorite at Big Pine Comedy Festival. His comedy is shaped not only by his 25-plus years of marriage and two kids, but also by his 10 years as a head high school football coach and drama teacher.
