CISF: Drew Michael & Tom Rhodes
Drew Michael is a Chicago comedian who looks at life from a dark, cerebral point of view. His rumination on relationships, ex-girlfriends, bestiality, pedophilia, God, religion, Hitler, government, life and death has prompted TimeOut Chicago to call him, “Smart, funny and unabashedly crass.”
Drew is a founding member of the comedy collective, Comedians You Should Know. The OnionAV Club says, “The genuine quality of talent on display is unrivaled in Chicago.” The group released a self-titled album that debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts.
Drew released his first album Lovely in 2013. The album debuted #1 on the iTunes comedy charts, which is surprising considering it's this really pretentious love-concept album that nobody understands. He followed that release with Funny To Death, on Comedy Central Records and recently released his first special for Comedy Central (The Half Hour), in the fall of 2016. Drew is also a writer for Saturday Night Live.
See Drew now, while you still can, before he is viciously murdered by an ex-girlfriend, an unruly audience member, or himself.
Tom Rhodes is a world traveling comedian who is now celebrating his 30th year as a stand up comedian.
The New York Times describes him as “A mostly natural intellect with a knack for reporting the harsh realities of life with a dark and absurdly optimistic cynicism.”
An adventurer forging his own path, Rhodes has built a career that not only includes stand-up specials, a sitcom, a travel show, a late night talk show, numerous live CD’s
& DVD’s, his critically acclaimed podcast Tom Rhodes Radio, as well as being a travel writer for the Huffington Post.
