WHO'SNEY CHITWHAT?! Whitney Chitwood is a Chicago-based, nationally touring standup comedian & a lesbian squirrel in a shoebox who was recently called "Inspiring!" by the incomparable Maria Bamford. Whit's debut standup album "The Bakery Case" (Stand Up! Records) premiered at number 1 on the iTunes and Amazon comedy charts, was played in its entirety twice by Sirius XM, and was in the Top 10 on the Billboard Comedy Charts. In Chicago, Whit headlines shows constantly and is a regular at the Laugh Factory and Zanies. She's been the requested opener for the likes of Rhea Butcher, Adam Conover, Guy Branum, Greg Behrendt (“I want to say, see Whitney Chitwood while you can see her on the cheap, because she’s headed somewhere.”), and the great Eddie Pepitone (“Whitney Chitwood is one of my favorite comics everyone should know.”) Additionally, Whit has been featured on MoveOn.org and is a frequent contributor to The Paper Machete at Chicago's Green Mill (where "The Bakery Case" was recorded), as well as OUT Chicago on WCPT. Nationally, Whit headlines tours such as "Is This Us? Are We Here? Comedy Tour?" and "Never Look A Horsegirl In The Mouth", as well as festivals like Altercation Comedy Festival (TX), Yuck Fest (IN), Southwest Chief Comedy Festival (CO). She's been featured at clubs like the Hollywood Improv and The Comedy Store; festivals like Riot LA, 208 Comedy Festival, and SF Sketchfest; and shows like UnCabaret and "Put Your Hands Together". In case you were wondering, Whitney is what happens when a child spends 1/4 of her time on a farm, 1/4 of it at her father's theatre, 1/4 at her mother's theatre, and 1/4 alone daydreaming about marrying Alyssa Milano's character, Phoebe, from Charmed.

Jamie Ward

Jamie is an Atlanta based comedian, who was adopted from Korea, but not sure which one. He is a US Army veteran, who served in Afghanistan, as well as an adventurer who has been bullriding, dogsledding, and loves ballroom dancing. Most recently, Jamie and his friend took a 10 day trip, driving through all 48 of the contiguous states in just over 240 hours. His comedy is autobiographical and reflective of his over complicated approach to life’s simplicities. He’s done a lot of dangerous activities, but the thing he fears most, is trying to talk to women.

Jamie Ward has been featured on FOX, HULU and can be heard on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio. He regularly performs at comedy clubs across the country as well as touring internationally including performing overseas entertaining our deployed US servicemen & women. He just finished up headlining the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line ship, MS Grand Celebration. He is going to be featured on an upcoming show on E! and can be seen on Punching Below The Bible Belt, an Amazon Prime show filming in October.
