To say we are lucky to have Marty DeRosa headline the show is an understatement. This guy is a LEGEND of Chicago comedy!! As a founding member of Comedians You Should Know, the premier independently run stand up showcase in Chicago, DeRosa has had a #1 comedy album on iTunes and has been recognized as an emerging talent by Time Out Chicago. He performs stand up all over the country which lead him to a partnership with pro wrestler Colt Cabana. DeRosa has blended his talent for stand up comedy and his love of pro wrestling to become a favorite of both critics and fans for his quick wit and versatile voice The duo also collaborate on the Mystery Science Theater meets pro wrestling project $5 Wrestling, multiple web series including Worst Promo Ever & Creative Has Nothing For You. Wrestling With Depression, DeRosa’s critically acclaimed podcast, is an honest and humorous series of interviews with fellow comedians, wrestlers, and performers, reconciling the creative process with the daily struggle of depression. It has been profiled by Time Out Chicago, Comedy of Chicago and The Onion’s AV Club. Marty has performed at comedy clubs and colleges throughout the country. You can catch him virtually every night of the week on a stage somewhere saying words into a microphone. Sometimes there isn’t a stage and a few times there wasn’t a microphone. Only 10 bucks for a show that is at least worth 11-15 bucks.
