Crackers Comedy Club Downtown Welcomes Quinn Dahle

Crackers Comedy Club Downtown presents the HILARIOUS Quinn Dahle from Wed Feb 5 – Sat Feb 8! Also, don’t forget that our downtown weekend hours have changed THIS week. Friday and Saturday shows are now 7:45 and 10Pm.

With appearances on The Tonight Show, Showtime, Comedy Central, Lopez Tonight and Carson Daly, Quinn is a smart, clean and witty stand-up comic with impeccable timing. He has worked with such names as Robin Williams, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Dane Cook, Dana Carvey, Norm McDonald, Jon Lovitz, Bill Maher, Frank Caliendo, David Alan Grier, John Witherspoon, Tommy Chong, John Pinette and Harland Williams.

Originally from Minnesota, Quinn has lived in Colorado and Arizona before settling in Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in comedy. He tours from coast to coast and has even entertained our troops as far away as Japan. Quinn’s comedy appeals to all age groups and ethnicities and he loves to talk about them all. Being married to a Mexican-American girl from east L.A., he is never short of material. However, audiences often come back just for his improvisational crowd work where he can be the most spontaneous.

Crackers Comedy Club Downtown Presents Dave Landau

Working the road nonstop since his 21st birthday, Dave Landau has grown into a true comedic juggernaut. Finding himself much in-demand among audiences and club owners due to his deadpan demeanor and those jokes — my God, those jokes — that fluidly fly forth with breakneck pacing and perfect timing. Dave, it can be said with all due respect, is a throwback to another era of comedy. The entertaining everyman. Innocent enough at first blush; as he states his case, you begin to see where you and he have quite a bit in common. A wife, a house. An odd sense of calm in an increasingly crazy world. You’re on a tour of the familiar and prosaic, with Dave Landau as the bus driver.

Then he drops his foot on the accelerator. And things start to get wild. You see, Dave Landau might appear to be just like you, but he’s not really. His mind goes to places that angels would fear to tread, and he has no problem telling you about it. The mark of a great comedian, it is said, is the ability to find jokes where others would find tears. Dave find jokes everywhere; with his own foibles and faults, to his family, to pop culture and the state of the world today.

Cutting his comedic teeth as a teenager in Detroit in the Second City’s Conservatory, Dave Landau has risen to become one of the most in-demand headliners working today. He’s appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” as well as being featured prominently on two consecutive seasons of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” He’s become a regular on the nationally-syndicated “Bob & Tom” radio show, and was honored as one of the top 21 club comics of today at HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

Crackers Comedy Club Downtown Presents Brian Dunkleman

Crackers Downtown is thrilled to have Brian Dunkleman headlining this week alongside feature act, Forrest Shaw and opener Brad Scott from Wednesday October 16 – Saturday October 19.

Les and Jane Dunkleman were the proud parents of nine children….and then Brian was born. Due to a desire to have his parents one day address him by the correct name, Brian started doing stand up comedy in 1992. That year he won the “Buffalo’s Funniest New Comedian Contest”. Granted, the contest was voted on by the audience and he brought 50 people with him, but that’s not important….the point is, he never looked back.

Since then, he’s performed at HBO’s US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, on the “Tonight Show”, NBC’s “Late Friday”, and TBS’s ”Very Funny at the Laugh Factory”.

He has had acting roles on several hit television shows such as “FRIENDS”, “3RD ROCK FROM the SUN”, “THAT 70’s SHOW”, “GHOST WHISPERER”, “NYPD BLUE”, and “LAS VEGAS”.

He was the voice of SANFORD on the MTV animated series “3 SOUTH”, as well as characters on “FAMILY GUY” and “PROUD FAMILY”.

He hosted the first season of “AMERICAN IDOL”, and knowing full well the show would never last, decided to continue to pursue his dream of breaking the record for pilots that never make the air.

He was also the host of the syndicated television show “AMERICAN IDOL REWIND” and is a regular host of “Family Feud Live” in Atlantic City for Fremantle Media. He recently guest starred on two episodes of the NBC hit show “MY NAME IS EARL”, which was then abruptly canceled.

He can be seen doing stand up regularly in Los Angeles at the Laugh Factory and Improv, as well as comedy clubs all over the country. He also just had a comedy special air on SHOWTIME. Check out his comedy here!
