Featured Comedians:
December 23: Leah Mansfield & Daniel Isherwood.

Leah Mansfield is a hard working comedian living in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  She just returned from the San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival, where she was one of six comedians voted into the “Best of the Fest” show.  She was also accepted into the World Series of Comedy last year.  Her jokes have been featured on and  In 2010, she traveled over 46,000 miles to bring laughs to people locked away in small farm towns.  In this time she has opened and featured for national headliners such as Tig Notaro, Issac Witty and Troy Baxley.  She’s a regular performer at the Joke Joint Comedy Club, where she once worked the door and ran the weekly open mic.  Expect big things from this little comedian.

Daniel Isherwood began performing stand up comedy in 2008 when a chance reunion with an old high school friend allowed him to realize his secret fantasy of performing on stage. Since first taking the stage his style and manner have evolved to match his changing life, always with a mind to find a bit, a quip, a line that’s funnier than the last one he wrote. An avid experimenter Daniel strives to provide comedy with depth and meaning that explores his mundane physical life as well as his rich internal world. In the course of his career thus far he’s worked as a feature for such headliners as Duane Goud and Nate Jackson. He’s also very involved in local open mics around Olympia and the western Washington area.
