Jason Lawhead


Jason Lawhead is as relatable a comic as you’ll see working live on stage today. Observational everyday takes, personal family experiences, an array of sports material along with a knack for voices & story telling is the essence for the Cleveland bred comedian’s cleverly edgy & always funny delivery. Lawhead made a name for himself as a regular opening act for Bill Burr on both his “Billy Red State” & “Billy Bible Belt” tours in 2014 & 2015, as well as opening for Bill’s Netflix special “You People Are All the Same”. Jason has also appeared three times on Gotham Comedy Live & was hand selected by Wanda Sykes to the Season 9 cast of NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

Jason has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in comedy such as Jerry Seinfeld, Sebastian Maniscalco, Adam Sandler & many more. Lawhead is a regular contributor to the Kaplan & Crew show on The Mightier 1090AM ESPN Sports Radio in San Diego.


Bill Squire


In 2004, at age 22, Bill Squire was just your regular old excommunicated Mormon Missionary trying to find his way through life. Returning from a two-year-long Mormon mission in the Philippines, Bill found his voice on stage traveling the country telling jokes as he relentlessly pursued stage time. 

Bill Squire is the co-host of The Alan Cox Show on 100.7 WMMS. In the two decades Bill has been doing comedy he’s amassed more than 50 million views across YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok. Bill’s latest special Pure BS has over 100k views on YouTube. 

He also hosts his wildly popular podcast The Bill Squire Show on the iHeartRadio network.
