Stand-Up Comedians To Record In Princeton, IL

A group of touring stand up comedians are coming to Skooner'z Grill & Bar on May 14th at 8 p.m. to perform a live show and record for a documentary web series called the “Transparent Comedy Tour”. They are hitting the road, turning on the cameras, and not turning them off. The tour will be seven days on the road traveling the midwest starting in Maddison, Wisconsin and ending in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


The focus of the documentary web series is on what it’s like to do comedy on the road capturing genuine moments while they happen. The live show will feature six comedians of varying styles and backgrounds. From hard-hitting truth tellers to light-hearted story-tellers, the show will have something for everyone. The lineup for the tour is Perry Thompson, Matt Lamb, Jeremiah Scavo, Sam Hirchak, Matt Banwart, and Wade Taylor. Comics you’ve likely never heard of, but soon will. Between the ensemble of comics, they have played comedy festivals, sold out theatres, colleges, and, comedy clubs. More information can be found at TransparentComedyTour.com
