It’s the Famous Kevin Kramis!! Noted for his universal appeal, with stage presence and off-beat improvisations that captivate and involve audiences. Kevin works successfully before all kinds of folks from mature, discerning audiences at outdoor venues like DTE to the inmates at the super-maximum security prison in Mansfield, Ohio.

Natural likeability, original jokes and the knowledge to make it all look made up every time…this is what Comedian Mike brings to the table.

Her likeability and original approach to stand up has made her a fan favorite.

She is so beloved that she had a fan club of support when she auditioned for America’s Got Talent. People don’t just like Melissa. They adore her!
