Jewish comedian Shaun Eli on stage at the Emelin Theatre

Shaun Eli

Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America’s smartest comics. Whether it’s a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket, master storyteller Shaun Eli shows you that there’s hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Job interviews? Serving on a NYC criminal jury? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything he’s experienced Shaun has a hilarious story at the ready.
Shaun has a lot of friends from Chicago and they all say it’s a great place to live. Shaun looks forward to re-visiting Chicago, and also seeing one of America’s many Springfields (he’s already been to a couple of others), plus Naperville, Rockford, Joliet and Aurora.
Shaun lives in the NYC area because he’s not tough enough for Chicago winters.

Chicago, we know you’re the center of improv. That’s not us. We’re stand-up comedians. Some of what we do in our clean comedy shows may be improvised on the spot but most of it has been honed over years of practice and rewriting. We don’t need the audience to participate, only to sit back and enjoy our clean stand-up comedians.

Book Andy Pitz for your next comedy night (photo of the comedian)Andy Pitz

Comedian Andy Pitz performs clean comedy but not that boring kind. It’s fresh, relatable and very funny. Andy talks about his twenty years in standup, a long marriage to a neurotic woman, and small everyday things like how the world is perceived by our weird human mind. Andy can do this in a funny way even though he is not famous. Look at his picture. “I think I saw this guy at a comedy club one time…” Yes, you probably have. Andy’s been based in New York City since 1997 and has been performing professionally since 1991.
In 2003 Andy made his television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman, and a month later he was on CBS’s Star Search, where he was eliminated from the semi-finals in a total ripoff. Andy also did standup in 2007 on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson where he was asked to sign the guest book backstage. Sweet.
Having clean material allows Andy to work for a wide range of audiences. Standup comedy venues enjoy his energy and uniqueness. The corporate show crowd and even houses of worship appreciate cleaner subject matter and shows where anyone could be there and have fun.
Andy’s second live comedy recording, “More Mr. Nice Guy”, was released in November 2010 and is played in heavy rotation on Sirius Satellite Radio’s clean comedy station “Laugh USA”.
In and around New York City, Andy performs at the most well-known clubs and also the more obscure rooms, with the goal of working at least four nights a week. He could be at Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Dangerfield’s, or the Underground Lounge, Zinc Bar, or a youth hostel on any given weekday evening.
When road trips happen they are headlining engagements across the U.S. and Canada. Andy has toured China, performed in Woodstock New York and it’s very likely he’s appeared in the Netherlands.
