Dan Bacula is a Wisconsin native living south of Madison with his wife, son, and Forigner-loving, 6 yr old, 70lb, shadowy, rabbit killing, part-lab part-hound dog. Dan is a passive contrarian and a reknowned eulogist. He has shared the stage with Stewart Huff, Michelle Wolf, Tommy Johnagin, Alice Wetterlund, Barry Crimmins, and very inconsequentially introduced Louis CK.
Nate Chappell is the host of Madison's own live semi-fictional internet comedy talk show, The Last Show On Earth. He's performed stand-up comedy in front of actual people both as himself and as a caveman. He hosts a podcast (don't we all) accurately titled The NateCast. Nate enjoys jokes and efficiency. He is survived by his patient wife Vivian and his 2 elderly cats (subject to change).

Will Isenberg has been performing comedy in Madison since May of 2017. He is one of the co-hosts of Comedy by the Slice open mic, and enjoys creative writing and snowboarding, but not at the same time. He can be spammed at email@example.com.
Mike is part millennial, part deep woods hillbilly, and part demon. Sick of crawling inside elk rib cages for his supper, Mike got himself carried away to the big city by a tornado and brought his unique comedic viewpoint with him. Expect his act to be oddly appealing, like squishing Jell-O between your fingers. Mike also has a dark side that may surprise you in how similar his unseemly thoughts are to your own. Mike can be found hosting his weekly open mic or monthly showcases at Black Locust Cafe, hailing puppet Satan for Movie Hell, or getting sketchy with the Late Early Show. His friends and colleagues agree: Mike is someone you want on your side for the apocalypse.
Charlie Kojis has been performing standup comedy in Madison since 2014, during which time he has been described as “this generation’s Charlie Kojis.”
Combining his life experiences and general fears, Charlie blends traditonal joke telling with his own personal narrative. His dry delivery leaves audiences both laughing and wondering if he is as ok as he pretends to be. Charlie performs throughout the Midwest and has opened for comedians who include Tig Notaro, Gary Gulman, and Michael Che.
He was the winner of Madison's Funniest Comic 2016
Margaret Leaf (MADISON) moms 3 kids and 1 cat, works full time as an ANALyst, and tells jokes and stories in her 11 minutes of spare time. She trembled on stage at Lady Laughs 2016 and 2017, nearly peed herself producing and performing in the Madison story-share series “That’s What She Said,” and cried in her bathtub after co-producing and starring in “Loveseat,” the late-night variety show Madison never asked for.
