Headliner Sid Davis featuring Melissa Douty
Sid honed his material on his own time. "After all; this was my retirement. Then I realized I had hit a wall in the business. You can't approach this as a hobby. I dedicated myself and kicked things up a few notches. "
It payed off. Sid was a huge hit at the 2012 San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival
and the audiences voted him into the festival's Best in Fest Showcase.
Sid returned to the SLO festival to be voted “Best in Fest” again in 2013 and 2014.
In 2014 comedy legend Joan Rivers was looking for an opening act. The demanding Rivers and her manager viewed hundred of audition videos. After seeing 30 seconds of Sid Davis she declared, "Get him. He's terrific!"

Headliner Jim Holder, Featuring Ryan Van Genderen
Jim Holder is an 18-year veteran of stand-up comedy who has headlined comedy clubs from coast-to-coast. Jim started his career at The Comedy Workshop in Houston, Texas, home of the "Texas Outlaw Comics" such as Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks.
From those early influences, Jim developed the passion for stand-up comedy that he carries today. With an attitude aimed at making people laugh uncontrollably, Jim strikes incredibly close to home with his cynical descriptions of everyday subjects. His comedy is sometimes silly and hard-hitting, often spontaneous and interactive, but always funny. The question Jim receives most often after his show is "When are you coming back?"
Ryan hails from Patterson, New Jersey. He's been writing and performing comedy for almost 9 years. Based out of Charlotte, NC he now tours the country as both a feature and headlining act delivering the funny ( Jesus really?) one city at a time. His unorthodox style will sneak up on you with a laugh you never see coming (wait is that a good thing?). Voted "Class Clown" by his peers in 2000, Ryan has managed to make a career out of making people laugh. A true force on stage he mixes self deprecation with a witty point of view on life... in fact he might just change yours.
He has opened up for some of the best including Nikki Glaser, Neal Brennan, Jaime Kennedy, Keith Alberstadt, Mike Birbiglia, Charlie Murphy, Margaret Cho, Aries Spears, Natasha Leggero, Jon Lovitz, and Bill Burr.
