50/50 RAFFLE AND CONCESSIONS
Bill Boronkay, NYC (Headliner)- Former Sportscaster, Current Comedian, Future Bingo Champion. Once one of the country’s fastest rising sportscasters, Bill Boronkay enjoyed stops in Clarksburg, WV, Evansville, IN and Kansas City before finally landing in sunny Cleveland, OH where he was assigned various hazardous duties. Along the way, Boronkay won 5 Emmy’s, one of which is proudly displayed in his mother’s home office behind a lamp. After a failed audition with ESPN (a mirror was involved), Bill reevaluated his career and took off in lukewarm pursuit of his true 14th dream and stand up. Bill’s been seen on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, SportsTime Ohio, Time Warner Cable and heard on ESPN Radio, Bob & Tom and various radio stations across the country. In 2015, Bill moved to New York where he can often be found on the right train going the wrong direction. (website)
Dan Brown, OH (Opening Act)- Being Straight-Edge had the reputation of being aggressive in the 1980’s. But when performed by Dan Brown, it’s clean comedy that still has an edge and is aggressively funny. Dan talks about life from a wannabe superheroes point of view on having to grow up, family and relationships while maintaining honest and true. (website)
Deb G., Detroit, MI (Recovery Speaker)- Deb is a person with 17 years in long-term recovery. She will open the show by sharing her inspirational recovery story with us.
