Headliner: Tommy Highland
Tommy Highland grew up in Northern California, moving to Philly in 2005 to marry a hot chick and build houses. Finding east coast life funny, he started doing comedy in 2008. He is a lifelong study in all things handy and blue collar. A pain-in-the-ass husband and the goofy father of two cute daughters, his hands are strong like a man but his heart is soft like a girl. Tommy has opened and featured for many national headliners. He is a three time finalist in "Philly's Phunniest Person Contest" and recently featured prominently on Comedy Central's hit series, "Delco Proper".
Tommy has opened for Chris Smith regularly on his "I need A Social Worker" comedy tour. Their show has become a big hit all over their home state of Pennsylvania including a sold out show at the Newtown Theater.

Special Guest: Steve Rinaldi
Steve Rinaldi’s comedy career started when he decided to sign up for an open mic night in his home town of Philadelphia back in 2012. From there he would go out night after night working on finding his comedic voice at local bars and comedy clubs around the Philadelphia area.
In 2015, Steve made his way out to Chicago where he took improv classes at both the Second City & IO. Steve worked Chicago comedy clubs like Laugh Factory, Zanies, & Jokes & Notes.
He now performs regularly at the Funny Bone Comedy Clubs up north, and has became a regular in the Atlantic City Comedy scene.
