Featuring Sal Demilio
Comedy has been an important aspect to Sal Demilio’s life since grade school. Growing up in an Italian household and having lived in Italy, Switzerland, New York City and finally, the Detroit metro area, he has woven his Italian heritage into his comedy routine.
Having been a fan of comedy all his life, Sal took a class at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle, and got hooked on the laughter and applause after putting on a show for his graduation assignment. From there he went on to area bars, coffee houses and restaurants to hone his skills. Since he started doing opening acts 14 years ago, Sal is a national headliner, performing at comedy clubs throughout the United States, and has also performed at all the comedy clubs in the Detroit metro area. His professional inspirations have been Rodney Dangerfield, Richard Pryorand Jerry Seinfeld.
Headliner Derek Richards
"The only thing surprising about Derek is that he's not bigger."
Florida New Times Magazine
Richards' act is fasts, fresh and, at times, fanatical - often described as a politically incorrect discussion amongst friends at a bar.
Show after show, Derek brings the funny with tales about his Detroit, blue-collar upbringing, his mom's dog, the holidays, living in Florida, and dating an exotic dancer.
A veteran of several USO tours, Richards was chosen as one of the first performers at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba after the base begain guarding jailed Al-Qaeda terrorists. The comedy tour earned Richards national coverage in Newsweek. He also has performed at U.S. base camps in seven countries, including Iraq and Afghasistan.
You can catch Richards on the air via the Sirius/XM Satallite Radio Network and on the nationally syndicated, Bob and Tom Show along with Bob and Sheri. He also appeared on The Weather Channel's Top 10 series.
