May 23-25: Steve Gillespie with Nate Abshire and Derrick Henkels
Hailing from Minneapolis, where after receiving a graduate in something or other Steve became really bored and started telling jokes into a microphone. He first began honing his craft at the Acme Comedy Club, and has quickly emerged as a fast-rising talent in one of the strongest and most competitive comedy scenes in the country. Metromix magazine named Steve one of the top comedians in the Twin Cities.
Steve has appeared in some of the best comedy clubs all over the country – including opening appearances for Dave Atel, Harland Williams, Jim Breuer, Gilbert Gottfried, and Doug Benson.
In 2010 he performed at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival and in 2011 he appeared in the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival. This year Steve was named a finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic Award. His first comedy album “Stever Fever” is being produced by Rooftop Records and is coming out this fall.
