April 6-8 Eric McMahon
If you’ve ever wondered what life would be like if a type-A, high strung, alpha male wound up raising three daughters, then look no further than a night of informative comedy with Eric McMahon. You will understand the struggle of managing a divorce after a long marriage, trying to keep the high school boys away from his daughters and protecting their innocence, and dealing with an aging body that simply doesn’t function like the well-oiled machine it used to be. This show has something for everybody!
His upbeat, energetic delivery and his versatility to work blue or squeaky clean, has made him a favorite all over the country. This is demonstrated by the fact that he has recently opened for both Ray Romano and Andrew “Dice” Clay.
In the past few years, Eric has pitched a sitcom to CBS, starred in an off-off Broadway drama called “The Chill on Lake St. Clair”, hosts a weekly radio show called “What’s Your Problem?”, played Billy Flynn in a Broadway review of “Chicago”, and was one of the writers and performers in Jim Florentine’s comedy sketches on HBO’s “Inside the NFL”.
He is a well-rounded performer doing family comedy at its best. If you don’t appreciate your life as a care free single 25 year old, you certainly will after spending the night with Eric.
April 13-15 Rick Shultis
With his Southern charm, Mid-West sensibility, California cool and New York attitude, Rich is the perfect comic for all audiences. Starting stand-up at a relatively advanced age, he quickly became a regular at NYC clubs due to his vast life experience, hard work, professionalism and most importantly, his outrageously funny material. Rich now performs at clubs and venues throughout the country, leaving the audience in stitches and wanting more. Rich covers a broad and diverse spectrum of material with a unique perspective. Nothing is out of bounds. Delivering with a truly unique and diverse style, combined with truthfulness and art, leaving audiences not only laughing but shaking their heads “Yes”. Rich works with several charitable organizations and is a certified fundraiser for The Memorial Sloan Kettering Pediatrics Cancer Center.
April 20 & 21 Cliff Cash
Cliff Cash is a nationally touring standup comic who got his start in North Carolina. People said “you should be a comedian” his whole life but that sounded just as abstract as “you should be president” or “you should be an astronaut”.
But you can only run from fate for so long. In 2011 at the age of 31, Cash got up at his first open mic. He was in the middle of big financial troubles, his father in chemo, a failing business and a tumultuous relationship. That four minutes on stage breathed life back into him that he didn’t think was possible. He didn’t miss one
after that for two years.
Within a year and a half he landed Comedy Central’s UpNEXT and Sirius XM, the next year he appeared on Laughs TV and won Port City’s Top Comic and Comedy Zone’s Almost Famous. He’s gone on to win SLO Comedy festival’s Best of the Fest, Denver Comedy Work’s Thick Skinned (twice) and has headlined shows at Altercation Comedy Festival, Treefort Festival, West End Comedy Festival and BackHand Comedy Festival. He’s also been part of Standup NBC and Rooftop Comedy. Cash has a half hour on DRYBAR Comedy called “ God Needed a Driver” and his debut album “Halfway There” was released by StandUp! Records in 2021 and spent a week at #1 on the comedy charts.
Cliff Cash was raised on the far right end of the southern, conservative, evangelical spectrum and the result is the antithesis of what was intended. Cliff’s comedy tackles everything from racism to homophobia, greed and war to death and divorce. Don’t worry there’s some poop jokes mixed in. Cash takes the audience on
a journey that’s more than just funny. You’ll think, you’ll feel, you may even cry a little but then you’ll laugh again. His comedy aims to shine the light of levity into the darkest corners or the human experience and by doing so; take some power away from the things that we fear and dread. “Laughter is the best medicine” became a cliche for a reason. It’s true. Cliff hopes it is at least because he doesn’t have health insurance.

May 4 - 6 RC Smith
RC Smith was known as one of the best “TV warm-up guys” in the business for almost 20 years in New York City and he has brought his talents and high energy to SW Florida where he now resides. A warm up comics job is to get people into a great, upbeat mood before the taping of a show just as a headliners job in a comedy club is to have the audience go home feeling that they have seen something quite funny and unique. RC delivers in both of those venues.
Whether its behind the camera, in front of it, on the radio or performing in front of a live crowd, RC possesses the unique ability to work with the audience and make every show special. He has the reputation for being one of the top “crowd work” guys in the business and his ability to improvise so effortlessly is fun to watch. He automatically connects with audiences of all ages and under any circumstance. His style is rapid-fire, relentless and non-stop. And he gets away with it because he’s so darn likable. RC headlines around the country and Canada, hosts gala events, speaks at career seminars, and is a regular on a handful of radio station morning shows which is a true testament to his adaptability, likability and creativity.
RC’s influences are Don Rickles, Lenny Bruce, Gene Simmons and his father RC Smith Senior. RC is available to raise the roof of comedy clubs, theaters, private parties, corporate events and Senior living communities. He’s even done three wakes, a half a dozen churches, two synagogues and several busses in his 29 year career.
