Headliner RUSTY RUTHERFORD

Rusty Rutherford’s twisted comedy has "More Energy Than A High School Cheer Squad" (Montreal Fringe Festival). You'll question if Rusty is sane one minute with his dark, offbeat humor, then question if he's a "Comedic Genius" (Rusty's mom) the next when he seems to incorporate every member of the audience into an on-the-spot freestyle rap. Rutherford was recently voted 2nd best Albuquerque comedian in the Weekly Alibi's "Best of Burque'."  His comedic journey has taken him to venues of all shapes and sizes across America and Canada and has even landed him a spot on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Rutherford graduated from the University of New Mexico where he studied Theatre, Media Arts, Psychology, and Communication and has been member of Blackout Theatre Company and Eat, Drink and be Larry sketch comedy troupe. He has trained with Tricklock Theatre in Albuquerque, NM and The Annoyance Theatre in Chicago, IL. Whatever you expect, throw it out the window and expect the unexpected in what can only be described as structured insanity.

Featuring KENDRA JEAN

Kendra Jean first fell in love with stand up in 2004, but was too shy to introduce herself. She dated sketch and improv comedy from 2010-2016. After a one night stand with stand up, she lost stand up’s number. Now in a serious committed relationship with stand up, as of 2017, she's eagerly waiting for stand up to break her heart. 

Hailing from the exotic Daytona Beach, Florida Kendra Jean is now residing in the mean streets of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Her material is often personal, sometimes punny, and is always known to make audiences weep long after she has the left the stage.

JAMAR HALL

 While on stage, Jamar has been described as a cleverly blatant conversationalist. Originally starting in 2009, Jamar finally took to comedy in late 2012. Influenced by the likes of Bill Cosby &  Rodney Dangerfield, Jamar illustrates his misfortune in a storytelling fashion. One fellow comic has been quoted saying "Jamar adds logic to absurd situations." Having toured through most of the southwest and the east coast,  his main goal is to just spread the laughter.
