The heat waves of summer are behind us and the kids are back in school.... it's time for some LAUGHS! Funny Noizes Productions has just the ticket for you.  

Back to School Relief Comedy Show with Co-Headliners Diego Attanasioand Mike Szar, Featuring Chris Ketler (aka The Bitter Dude) and introducing Brett Thomas at The Rialto Theater located at 1000 Kenmore Blvd in Akron, Ohio. 

Co-Headliner Diego Attanasio is a Detroit based comedian originally from Peru who quickly wins over crowds with his quick wit, likability, and sarcastic observations. His rapid-fire delivery and onstage charisma make Diego one of the most notable acts in the midwest. Diego has performed stand-up in Alaska, Hawaii, and everywhere in between. He was a semi-finalist in the San Diego Comedy Festival and a finalist in the Laugh Your Bluegrass Off Comedy Festival. Additionally he has performed at the Baltimore Comedy Festival, Cleveland Comedy Festival, Memphis Comedy Fest, North Carolina Comedy Festival, Idaho Laugh Fest, Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, Beast Village Comedy Festival, Motor City Comedy Festival, Burning Bridges Comedy Festival, Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival, Gilda’s LaughFest, Border City Comedy Fest, Windsor Comedy Festival, Let’s Fest, and Fairbanks Funny Festival. Diego has opened for Joe List and Matt Braunger.

Co-Headliner Mike Szar has survived dating, dead-end jobs and a questionable college career in the wilds of Ohio. He's distilled what he's seen and learned into a dark, smart and quirky comedic vision that finds the universal humor in everyday angst. One of the hardest-working comics in the Midwest, he's opened for Brad Williams and Bobcat Goldthwait and toured regionally. His exasperated but hopeful observations have made him a comedic talent to watch from the fertile rust belt comedy underground.

Featuring: FNP own Chris Ketler ( aka The Bitter Dude ). Along with producing some of the most talked about and highly rated comedy shows in Akron, Chris keeps himself busy touring the mid and south west gigging at major Comedy Clubs in NYC, Illinois, Florida, and Ohio at manyh well known clubs like Broadway Comedy Club, Zaines, The Laugh Factory, Greenwich Village Comedy, the Funny Farm and the Funny Stop. When Chris isn't making people laugh, he's busy acting and recently added to his resume with the FX series "Below Average Joe", and the upcoming "Mafia Ties" as well as feature films, "White Boy Rick", "KOPPS" and even more to come. 

On this night, FNP introduces a very young, yet funny,  Brett Thomas. Come out and cheer him on.

Last and never least is The Master of Ceremonies the man with the golden voice (& and golden hair) from WNIR radio Mr. Tom Cullison.
