Headliner Chris Killian, featuring Blayr Nias
Chris Killian would love to sit down with you, buy you a cup of coffee, and tell you about how he has twice been voted “Nashville’s Funniest Comic,” or how his Facebook page boasts over 1,000 fans. He’d relish in explaining to you how he has performed with lots of famous people, or how he has his own CD cleverly entitled demoGRAPHIC (Get it? It’s a play on words…) but Chris would never do that.Mainly because he is modest, but mostly because he doesn’t have enough money to buy everyone a cup of coffee, so he’s just going to let this bio do all the dirty work for him.
Either way, Chris grew up in a small town outside of Nashville, TN, and nothing came easy for him (unless you count that one girl). He was just a small guy with big dreams, but luckily for you, none of those dreams materialized and he decided to pursue stand-up comedy. Armed with a guitar, Chris’ humor has been described as “edgy and smart,” but that’s probably only because he likes wearing a sweater vest. Make no mistake though – Chris’ innocent and laid-back demeanor compounded with his aggressive hilarity consistently catches crowds off-guard. His comedic songs, which often use acoustic melodies to launch into an array of raunchy, satirical, and self-deprecating lyrics, have been met with much approval from Chris’ rapidly growing fan base. Plus, there’s a rumor going around that catching one of Chris’ shows automatically makes you cooler. Maybe it’s just a rumor, but what if it isn’t? Are you really willing to risk it?
Blayr Nias lives by the creedo "If you can't be a good example, then you'll have to be a horrible warning." She hits the stage with ferocity and high octane humor sharing tales of her misadventures as a post-modern, wisecracking, bad girl next door. This Massachusetts native graduated from the George Washington University with a degree in Theater and Creative Writing. She was featured in the Pink Collar Comedy tour and is the creator and host of the Almost Famous Comedy Show at the Charlotte Comedy Zone. She has opened for Natasha Leggero, Ralphie May, Chris Kattan, Jon Reep, and DL Hughley.

Cliff Cash comes from the religious and conservative south and adds a new twist to stand-up that you won’t soon forget. Finding absurdities in everyday culture, media, politics and dogma; Cash draws comparisons that others miss. Whether it’s through one of his characters or voices, an angry rant or a satirical rap song, Cliff will make you question what you accept as normal.
