Mar 10th and 11th 2023

Meet the Comics!

Don Friesen

Don Friesen: Smart and savvy highly caffeinated comedy

He has a one hour special on Showtime called “Ask Your Mom.” He has appeared on Live at Gotham, and Comics Unleashed, and he is the only two-time winner in the 41-year history of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He was also featured in TBS’ “The Comedy Festival” in Las Vegas and is wildly popular on KLOS’ 5:00 Funnies, 100.3 The Sound’s Laughter at 45 After, and Sirius/XM satellite radio.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says “Friesen will leave a lasting comic impression,” and describes him as “offbeat, satirical, self-deprecating and slightly out of control.” With an act that somehow manages to be both intimate and absurd, Don will draw you into his world where he skillfully blends characters, voices, physicality, and parodies to create some of the most memorable routines around.

Jaci Terjeson

Jaci Terjeson is a stand-up comedian and she produces The Laughing Elk Comedy Show in Tacoma and is a regular at Club Comedy in Seattle and the Tacoma Comedy Club. Jaci was featured as “Comic of the Week” on the Jackie and Laurie Show and was a selected performer at the Upper Left Comedy Festival as well as the NW Women’s Comedy Festival. Her lovable style has been known to soften even the hardest of hearts with a triumphant delight that says, “You CAN sit with us!! As soon as you pick the spinach out of your teeth.”

Jeremiah Coughlan

Jeremiah Coughlan is a comedian with a very distinct style. Dave Attell recently described him on stage as “someone who looks like he knows everything there is to know about parrots.” He has worked with diverse acts from Melissa Villasenor and Katt Williams to Lionel Ritchie. In November of 2022 he recorded his second live comedy album that is being released by Helium Comedy Records.

He has been featured on Audible’s comedy series “Sounds Like America” and performed all over the country and internationally at festivals including The SF Sketchfest, The North Carolina Comedy Fest, The Savage Henry Comedy Festival, and The 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival where he was nominated as “Best of the Fest” by the festival’s organizers.

Daina Ali

Daina Ali is a comedian and a storyteller from Minneapolis. She was born in Somalia and immigrated to Minnesota as a kid, considering herself to be a third culture adult. This has allowed her to develop an awareness of the world around her, and to create comedy that has multi-level, multi-cultural appeal. She has performed across the United States and opened for national headliners like Hasan Minhaj.

Kermet Apio

Kermet Apio is a past winner of the Seattle Comedy Competition and a winner of the Great American Comedy Festival, a national competition that takes place in Johnny Carson's home town of Norfolk, NE. He has appeared on Comedy Central and A&E and has numerous appearances on National Public Radio. He has performed in 47 states and recently completed a 25 city theater tour through western Canada.
