Episode 26

A native Chicagoan, Steven Springer started his comedy career while living in Indianapolis. He has a deadpan delivery and a self-deprecating style reminiscent of his idol, Rodney Dangerfield. He has performed throughout Chicagoland, including Zanies and Laugh Factory, as well as clubs throughout the country. In his 58 years he has lived a life that was meant to be talked about on stage, including his family and multiple jobs such as correctional officer. He is a well-defined character, like his favorite Chicago comedian and mentor, “Uncle” Larry Reeb. Seamlessly gliding from one one-liner to another, he delivers punchline after punchline.

She did her first 5 minutes at Caroline’s, then for several years working there, and at Stand Up NY, Gotham, The Comic Strip, etc. She took a break from comedy for almost a decade, but returned in 2018, and has since performed at The PIT, Gateway Comedy, Governor’s, and McGuire’s Comedy clubs.

“I am a salesman. I’ve had successes in different retail arenas as both a Sales Manager and a commissioned sales guy. I was challenged by Tony Melendez to take a comedy workshop and survived my “graduation” from Standup University and those 3 magnificent geniuses. I had so much FUN after being sooo nervous about the “Bomb.” I could never do it to make a living as I don’t have the patience to put in the extensive work to succeed in this most rewarding craft.”

In 1980 started taking stand-up comedy classes with Lisa Carmel, then with others. Always loved it. Still doing it. My father’s dad was a composer Jacob Weinberg (1879-1956).”
