Jeff Shaw

with Chris Young

Jeff Shaw is a stand-up comic. His writing is marked both by idealism and humanity. His stimulating satire is often infused with a singular poetic beauty. More important, he looks like Rod Stewart.

Over the past three decades, Jeff has performed nearly 9,000 shows across North America and the Caribbean, including a residency in Las Vegas. In 2019, he taped his first half–hour comedy special for the Dry Bar Comedy network, started working for Norwegian Cruise Line and signed a record deal with On Tour Records for a 2020 CD release. In 2009, Jeff helped launch the Punchliner Comedy Club chain for Carnival Cruise Line, where he's known as Jeff "the Fun Dude," and was the club manager and house MC on the Carnival Dream. More recently, Jeff was a finalist in the 2019 Antelope Valley Comedy Festival and taped an episode of "America's Got Talent" for Season 15, airing sometime during the summer of 2020.

In the 1990s, Jeff wrote popular comedic essays and feature stories for Cleveland's Scene Magazine, Buffalo's Art Voice, and the online comedy publication SHECKY! Magazine. Jeff is also a former staff writer for Cleveland's American Greetings Corporation, responsible for hundreds of funny greeting cards and novelty items for the company's Alternative Cards Department.

Jeff's hilarious first book, The Fun Dude's Guide to Cruising: A Humorous Handbook for Taking Your First Cruise and Living to Complain About It, is available now as a paperback and Kindle e-book on Amazon.

Chris Young

Chris Young is able to take real life experiences and turn them into laughs that maintain a clean but funny appearance. Chris’s luck (or lacks there of) have lead him to look at the world through a different set of glasses. Having once been called a pessimist by a fellow classmate "he replied simply, that he is not a pessimist but a optimist, as he believes things could not get any worse!”

He is a frequent performer at comedy clubs, colleges and casino’s as well as corporate shows around the country. He has appeared at the Gilda's Laughfestin Grand Rapids,Mi the Laughing Skull Festival and the Canton Comedy Festival. He was the winner of the TV20 Detroit "That's Funny" Comedy Contest on My Network, as well as a finalist in Dave Coulier's "Clean Guys of Comedy/Unbleepable Contest." Chris is also a favorite on radio stations all across the country. He has shared the stage with some of his favorite comics, including Bob and Tom's Mike Armstrong, Larry Reeb, Heywood Banks, and Dave Coulier.


He credits his family and God for giving him his quick wit and ability to laugh. Chris ends each show with a quote that sums up the way he views the world. “ If you can’t get ahead in life, at least get a little behind”.
