100 Proof Comedy Knocks It Out of the Park with Danny Kallas

100 Proof Comedy is back with top shelf comedy and a strong kicker of a headliner: Danny Kallas!

image

The blue-collar Chicago accent of Danny Kallas has been described as “so thick, you don’t even know what hit you.” Raised in Elmwood Park, a tightly-knit community bordering Chicago’s Northwest side, Danny enjoys blending all sorts of comedy. From absurd silliness to intelligent satire, if it’s funny, it’s in his act.

Danny has been named on Comedy.com’s list of funniest comedians in Chicago. He was the winner of Snubfest 2009 and has participated in numerous comedy festivals including Just For Laughs in Chicago and the Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta.

100 Proof Comedy Rages On with Peter-john Byrnes

100 Proof Comedy is back with top shelf comedy and a strong kicker of a headliner will make you mad with laughter: Peter-john Byrnes!

image

Peter-john Byrnes has been described as having “the voice of an NPR announcer and the mind of an apocalyptic street preacher.” He eschews typical subject matter in favor of informing audiences about the inevitability of human decline, the end of civilization, and other light-hearted fare. He also uses words like “eschews.”

Peter-john is the host of the comedy podcast This Week in Despair, which gets downloaded in all 50 states and (at last count) 34 foreign countries around the world. He is inexplicably popular in Finland.
