Over the last few years, Dry Bar Comedy has welcomed more than 300 professional stand-up comedians to perform on their stage. With so many talented entertainers on their platform, choosing one for your next big event may seem like a daunting task.
To help you with your search, we’ve put together a list of top comedians who we believe will make your event a guaranteed success and even leave your audience wanting more.
1. Brian Kohatsu
This versatile performer, Brian Kohatsu, has spent two decades as an award-winning director before stepping away from the camera for a career as a professional comedian. He first started training with various improv troupes and eventually transitioned to stand-up.
Brian’s comedy set is full of silly jokes and witty remarks, but his slapstick humor stands out the most. The physicality he had developed through his improv days serves him when he wants to deliver a story and make it more believable.
But don’t just take our word for it. Watch the following clip from Brian’s Dry Bar Comedy special, where he narrates the Japanese version of three little pigs.
2. Maureen Langan
Maureen Langan was an award-winning broadcaster when she decided to take a leap of faith, quit her job, and try out her luck as a stand-up comedian. Her numerous on-screen appearances, including HBO, Gotham Live, Comics Unleashed, and Dry Bar Comedy, indicate that her decision is paying off.
Like many top comedians, Maureen draws most of the inspiration for her jokes from her life experience, including being a female performer, a radio talk show host, a keynote speaker for corporate events, and a professional complainer.
Her honest rants, quick wit, and flawlessly executed punchlines have made her one of the most beloved comics in the country.
Check out one of her bits in the video below and see why she is the talk of the town.
3. Mike E. Winfield
Before his performance on The Late Show with David Letterman or his reoccurring role on NBC’s The Office, Mike E. Winfield was already making a name for himself as a stand-up wunderkind before Dry Bar Comedy, and America’s Got Talent.
His silly jokes, relatable material, and ability to engage and interact with his audience have turned Mike E. into one of the most sought-after comedians in the country.
His high-energy delivery and well-thought-out jokes make a combination guaranteed to bring his audience joy.
