This month's line up includes:
Colin Ryan, who’s originally from Dublin, Ireland, but has been living in rural Iowa for two years now and has played throughout the state featuring for National acts like Josh Blue, Greg Warren, Scott Long and Mike McRae, and was also the winner of the Iowa Comedy Showdown competition in 2011.
The night following this show he is recording his first CD with Underground Comedy, at the House of Bricks in Des Moines, "Atheist by Grace of God". His insightful act covers many issues, such as his unique perspective on life in Iowa, religion, politics and Fatherhood.
Tom Garland, whose unique act blends hip-hop and topical comedy with a dash of home-grown Iowa flavor. He's worked world famous clubs such as Chicago's Zanies Comedy Nightclub, opened sold-out shows with over 1,000 fans for B.J. Novak and Joel McHale, and was featured in Gilda Radner's LaughFest 2012 in The Late Night Comedy Pros Showcase, solidifying him as "one of the country's best young professional comics..."

Garland has also shared the stage with Heather McDonald, Alonzo Bodden, Mike E. Winfield, Josh Blue, Alex Reymundo, Chad Daniels, Steve-O and Carlos Mencia. His album, "Leash Your Kids," is currently available on iTunes and in rotation on Pandora Comedy Radio. In August, Garland will be featured in Denver's prestigious Laugh Track Comedy Festival 2012 at the historic Bug Theatre.
Jake Vevera, who, in his own words, is "neither funny, charming, intellectual, good-looking, inspiring, wise, or charismatic, original. He is a worthless hack and doesn't deserve an ounce of your time or attention. But come see him anyway, because if you're unsatisfied with the show, he might be convinced to give you a lap dance to make up for his lack of talent. Either that, or you could just ask for your money back if he sucks at either one. Jake Vevera loves you!"
Porn star/comedian Bruce Jay, who has reached his sensual peak.
After over 600 porn films and a close collaboration with Larry Flynt. He's decided to share his over 20 years of experience with jokes and gags. What happens when the amyl nitrate goes bad? Well it really hurts? Get ready for 20 minutes of feathers, fluff and fun. The old fashioned Hollywood way. In an old fashioned romp through human tragedy.
The evening’s festivities will be hosted by Yale Cohn, a five time Olympic gymnastics champion, former financial advisor to the Enron Corporation, the first yogurt shop bouncer in the history of the state of Iowa, and the tallest person in his family.
He also has a wildly popular weekly television show.
