#AccidentalComedyFest with KYLE KINANE September 9 & 10 at REDDSTONE
September 9, 2012 @ 8 p.m.
More Cleveland comedy fans have requested the services of Kyle Kinane since shows started at Reddstone than any other performer.
Finally, he's returning to Cleveland for two nights to kick off the first ever #accidentalcomedyfest!
The last few times he was in Cleveland, he demolished opening for Patton Oswalt + Daniel Tosh. Since then, he's released one of 2011's best comedy albums (Death of the Party) and has an hour special premiering on Comedy Central later this year. Now, he's coming to headline!
Both nights hosted by Ramon Rivas II
Seating is limited to 50 per show. Please RESERVE your TICKETS in ADVANCE!

Ramon Rivas II (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.

Bill Squire (Sunday 9/9)
At age six Bill Squire fell while getting out of a kiddie pool and broke his left arm. It got a huge laugh. Ever since then Bill has wanted to make people laugh.
Bill has earned the respect of his peers by performing fearlessly at any venue, whether it is a hole in the wall bar or a 2000 seat theater Bill is going to put on a show to remember.
In 2011 Bill won the “Car Crash Comedy Contest” on SiriusXm’s Opie and Anthony Show. In 2008 he was part of the Mitch Across America Tribute to Mitch Hedburg where several Comedy Clubs across the country held shows to celebrate the life of Mitch Hedburg and the release of his last album. In the summer of 2009 Bill made a non-traditional appearance on Comedy Central by winning the “Show Us Your Best” contest and had his stand up clip aired on Comedy Central and featured on comedycentral.com . Bill is also a cast member on the youtube sensation webseries “Man in the Box” which has over 60,000 subscribers, nearly 200 episodes and was aired on Cinemax OnDemand in 2008.
Bill is also a regular in comedy clubs all over the country and has opened for some of the best comedians working today like Daniel Tosh, Tom Green, Roy Wood Jr, Russell Peters, and Bruce Bruce. Bill has even shared the stage with comedy legend George Wallace. His hard work ethic and his natural comedic talent have made him one of the fastest rising stars in the comedy world today and his performances are always non-stop laughs.
Ryan Dalton (Monday 9/10)
Ryan Dalton is a homegrown Cleveland favorite. Ryan attended the prestigious Kent State University. After college, Ryan went on to hold part-time jobs in such world-reknowned trades as food service, retail, and coffee distribution. Finally, Ryan sunk his teeth into the most honest profession in the world, car sales. This dream occupation was not enough for him. Ryan hungered for the taste of stand up comedy, and on a dare, took the stage in Nanuet, NY in 1998. This experience started a hunger for the constant approval from crowds of complete stangers. His thirst would never be quenched!
Ryan soon discovered the entertainment industry where a basic lack of knowledge on any subject is not only necessary, but also embraced. He uses stand-up as a device in which he pokes fun at controversy and the “everyday personal injustices” that are dealt with by the common man, sorry, person, whatever!
Ryan is a comedian that wants everyone to just relax. His lovable sarcasm and smart, conversational style makes for a broadly appealing show.
Ryan’s standup has led him to regular appearences in the country’s best comedy clubs. Ryan is a regular the nationally syndicated, “Bob and Tom Radio Show,” and he was featured as one of “Myspace.com’s Featured Comedians.” Ryan recently made his television debut on the third season of Comedy Central’s “LIVE AT GOTHAM.”
