A Colorado native, Jodee Champion is a favorite at her hometown Comedy Works in Denver. She travels all over the country to perform at venues like the Gotham in New York City, and Red Rocks Ampitheatre. Being a young single mom inspires much of Jodee’s material—and socially acceptable alcoholism provides the rest.


Christie Buchele is an up-and-coming standup comic living and working out of Denver,
Colorado. From recent appearances at the Crom Comedy Festival in Omaha, NE, to regular shows at
Denver's own Comedy Works and the Denver Improv, this girl reps The Mile-High City hard while
crushing audiences with a wry, biting style that's a bit sweet, a bit surly and really
really funny.


A classic middle child, Mara Wiles parlayed her need for attention into a comedy career and so far so good. She has proven a vital addition to Denver’s comedy scene with her quick-witted routines and devastatingly funny asides. Mara got her start with Denver improv group, Impulse Theater and from there became involved with Denver’s thriving stand-up scene. She is also a founding member/writer/performer of Ladyface, her former all-female sketch group. Mara was voted Best Comic at 2011 Laugh Tracks Comedy Festival in Denver.  Mara can be found performing all over at Denver’s best shows like the Grawlix, The Fine Gentleman’s Club and Arguments and Grievances: Debate Show. She has opened for the like of Chris Fairbanks, Dan St. Germaine and Adam Cayton-Holland. When Mara isn’t on stage she can be found trying to get into yoga, reading Real Simple magazine or  writing on her blog about motown music, Lady Gaga and her recent kidney transplant.


Kendra Anne Thompson's comedy originated on the East coast in Philadelphia and New York City. She has been a new talent featured performed at Carolines NYC and Gotham Comedy Club NYC. Kendra's comedy is a blend of whitty observation and outlandish storytelling, edgy and feminine, her comedy offers a unique outlook on life. Kendra is thrilled to be performing in her second Dairy Theater Comedy Showcase.


Haley Driscoll has been doing professional improv comedy since 2007 and stand-up comedy since the beginning of 2011. She was born in California, raised in the Mile-High City and got her BFA in Theater from CU Boulder. Haley has studied and performed with i.O (Improv Olymic) West, The Groundlings, Second City LA and has been featured in national commercials. You can follow her on twitter at @HaleyMDriscoll. Haley also cannot whistle and gives horrible high-fives.

Comedian, poet and writer Jil Chrissie is an entertainer with a unique witticism. She began comedy in LA at the Laugh Factory, and found out there was nothing else in the world she'd rather do than help people smile. She believes comedy is the only suitable career for her, unless hospitals start hiring nurses with a "passion for Grey's Anatomy" degree. She has also performed in a number of comedy clubs across the country. As a poet she stands firmly among award winning slam artist, and performance poets alike.
