#bigchucklefck no. 27 with Jim Tews
August 21, 2012 @ 8 p.m.
Jim Tews returns from New York for a week to do shows and seduce baristas. Jim got his comedy chops in Cleveland and has since moved to the big apple, where he was invited to perform at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and to pay exhoborant amounts of money for rent and being alive.
Come show Jim that Cleveland is probably better than New York if you ignore all the big buildings and great public transit and beautiful people.
Ramon & Jim will be cohosting the show together in preparation for the weekends pilot tapings at Reddstone. Yusuf will step up to close out the show.

Ramon Rivas II (Co-host)
Despite being mexican, unemployed, carless and heavy, Ramon Rivas is one of the hardest working comedians to come out of Cleveland in years. Combining his work ethic with a overtly chill stage presence, Rivas leaves an impression on every show he performs on. In 2011, he performed at the Just For Laughs Chicago Festival opening for Jo Koy at the historic Vic Theatre.
Rivas has become a fixture in the rich & deep Chicago comedy scene and has been working feverishly to make Cleveland a similar hub for great comedy. Between producing his own shows around town, being one of the club favorites at Hilarties and constantly searching out stage time, Rivas is becoming synonomous with comedy in Cleveland.
His blog has been quoted in the New York Times and his inconsistent personal journalism has led to him receiving props from one of the great comedy curators, Paul Provenza.
Not bad for a lovable stoner.
Lee Honeycutt (Performer)
