By popular demand, the "Nobodies of Comedy Tour" is returning to The Ritz Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 26.
Michael Mills of Mills Entertainment said he selects comedians for the tour based on talent.
"The result," Mills said, "is an incredible night of hilarious comedy."
The line-up for the Tiffin performance includes Tony Deyo, Chris Doucette, Renee Gauthier, Jamie Lissow and Jill-Michele Melan. While not household names yet, Mills said these young comics are poised for comedy greatness.
A look at the cast:
Considered a rarity in the comedy world, Tony Deyo is clean and funny. He is known for his sharp, quick material and timing, probably gained from his years as a professional symphony musician.
In 2007, he performed at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. In 2011, Deyo was named one of the year's best by the New York Post and has been heard on the nationally syndicated "Bob and Tom Radio Show."
Weighing in at 110 pounds and standing less than 5-foot-7, Chris Doucette may be proof big things come in small packages. He is the son of a trucker and the first in his family to graduate college. His blue-collar attitude is paired with an Ivy League wit that Mills describes as "current, topical and completely original."
In 2011, Doucette won first place at the Snubfest Comedy Festival in Chicago.
He has performed on the largest cruise ship in the world and was selected as a feature comic at the Michigan Comedyfest, Charleston Comedy Festival, Baltimore Comedy Festival and Baltimore Artscape Festival.
Chicago native Renee Gauthier has been doing stand-up comedy on "Last Call With Carson Daly" and Season 7 of "Last Comic Standing."
Other credits include as a recurring panelist for "Chelsea Lately: 50 Most Epic Moments on E!" and Comedy Central's 2012 South Beach Comedy Festival.
A native of Rochester, N.Y., Jamie Lissow graduated from Fredonia State with a degree in mathematics and psychology. Then, he decided to abandon his plan of becoming a lawyer and enter the world of stand-up comedy.
Lissow earned a spot in the 2001 Montreal Comedy Festival.
A proud "Star Search" loser, he can be seen recurring on Fox News
Channel's "Red Eye" and he has his own "Comedy Central Presents" segment.
Jill-Michele Melean recently has been seen on Showtime's stand-up special "Hot Tamales" and was the first and only Latin cast member of Fox's "MadTV." On Comedy Central's "Reno 911," she plays George Lopez's girlfriend. Other appearances have been on Fox's "Til Death" and as host of SiTV's "Inside Joke."
Melean also is a writer and producer.
