Crackers Downtown Welcomes Ryan Dalton

Who ever said people with A.D.D. should be medicated? Ryan can’t remember. But whoever said it was wrong! No meds required. Just give him a stage, a mic and you’ve got a comic with an erratic style and constantly fresh material.

Join Crackers Comedy Downtown this week from Wednesday September 4 – Saturday September 7 as we enjoy the humor of comedian Ryan Dalton.

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-renowned 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 comedy has led him to regular appearances in the country’s best comedy clubs. He is a regular the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom Radio Show.” His first comedy album “You Were Funny Too” is on rotation on Sirius XM’s “RawDog” comedy channel. Ryan has been recognized as one of MySpace’s “Featured Comedians.” In 2011 Ryan made his first USO tour of Qatar and Afghanistan. Ryan made his television debut on the third season of Comedy Central’s “LIVE AT GOTHAM.” He also wrote for Comedy Central’s “Roast of Charlie Sheen” in 2011. Just recently Ryan took the grand prize at the 2011 World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas and finished as a finalist in the 2011 Boston Comedy Festival.

Ryan’s got some great material that you do not want to miss. Joining Dalton is feature act Pete Davidson and opener, Jordan Mather-Licth Grab your tickets here!

Crackers Downtown Presents Keith McGill

Hey Indy! We’re excited to present Keith McGill at Downtown Crackers from Wednesday July 24 – Saturday July 27.

What kind of comic is Keith? Well, he’s the guy you want to sit next to at a boring meeting. He’s clever, insightful, and a little bit eye-opening. His comedy is truth with a twist. Indy’s NUVO said, “Keith McGill has a style that is smooth and temperate, and lacks any gaudy gimmicks or catch phrases, making him one of the best standup acts within earshot… His material is positive and PG-13, yet still intelligently critical of the comical absurdities [of life]…The Louisville native is impossible not to like.” As well as being popular internationally on Royal Caribbean Cruises, Keith has appeared on BET and CMT, and is a Bob and Tom Show favorite, as well as a much sought-after entertainer for corporate events. A sample of his comedy:

“The Economy”
The economy is getting better, but the media isn’t saying very much about it. They like it when the news is bad. When the stocks were dropping, that was all they could talk about. “Oh, my God, your stocks are going down! Watch your stocks! Watch your stocks!” I was like, I should be watching my stocks. Then I realized–I don’t have any stocks! I was broke when the meltdown started; I’ll be broke when it’s over. My portfolio is stable. I’m not waiting for my 401(K) to come back–I don’t have one. My 401(K) is a Powerball ticket. My retirement plan is a slippery floor at WalMart.

Another sample of his comedy:

Keith will be performing at our downtown location with the EXCEPTION of Thursday night. He will be performing for a private benefit in Broad Ripple on Thursday night, and Tone Bell will be performing downtown. Get your tickets here.
