Opener – Larry Bloom
Larry Bloom has been writing jokes and making people laugh his entire life. Growing up, north of Chicago, in Wilmette, Illinois, what interest—and talent—Larry lacked in sports, he made up for with a passion for the stand up comedians, and characters from movies and television, of the 60s, 70s and 80s. Larry was a remarkably horrible high school and college student, and he often says that if those years were a book, it would be titled, Fear and Loathing on Campus. Larry’s stand-up comedy springs from a lifetime of experiences and a view of the world seen through a comedian’s filter, in which humor can be found in everything and nothing is off-limits—unless it’s not funny. He can be seen performing on stage throughout the Chicago area. Through Funnier By The Lake Comedy, Larry has made it his mission to bring live comedy to the North Shore.

Host – Khamandi Johnson
Khamandi is a Chicago based comic who now lives in Bloomington and has been blowing the roof off of comedy clubs, night clubs, and lounges throughout the MIdwest.
