Chris Ketler

Chris Ketler aka The Bitter Dude has been bitter since the day he was born. He hails from NE Ohio but grew up in Central FL. Growing up he had a love of Rock-n-Roll and wanted to be on stage. Sadly, he had no musical talent, so he just lived a Rock-n-Roll lifestyle.

After 25 years of sun and surf Chris returned to his roots in rural NE Ohio. It would take another 25 years before he discovered he should be on stage….as a comic! That was 15 years ago. Today, he’s still a comedian and not so bitter as now owns and operates Krackpots Comedy Club, Massillon His personal philosophy is to live a life worth commenting on, or at least be able to see the humor in it. So, after raising 2 sons, a failed marriage, several lost jobs, being the oldest of 9 siblings and a lifetime of bitterness Chris was ready to hit the stage. Chris is a strong feature comedian who knows how to warm a crowd up for a headliner yet not overshadow a headliner. He has worked extensively throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Kentucky, New York, Florida, Indiana and Illinois. A few defining moment for him was performing at The Laugh Factory, Zanies, Riddles, The Funny Farm, The Improv, The Broadway Comedy Club, The Greenwich Village Comedy Club, The Comedy Bar , & many other notable clubs. He has worked with some of the best and some not so good comedians throughout his career and has been a finalist numerous times in The Funny Stop Comedy Contest in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Chris’s production group, Funny Noizes Productions, is one of N.E. Ohio’s largest independent producers. FNP was nominated as “Best Production Group” in 2018 & 2019 Cleveland Comedy Awards. Chris can be heard on I Heart Radio every week as a Co Host on The Epic Radio Show. Chris’s comedic style is reminiscent of George Carlin and Steve Martin. He entices his audiences to pack their bags as he throws them in the back of his van, willing or not they’re along for the ride as he takes them on a journey through his life. His material reverberates with audience members, relates to common themes of today, but he reacts in a manner that no sane person would but without crossing the comedy blue line. Audiences seem to relate to his unique perspective and tenacious sense of humor. To Chris, life is always bittersweet.

Emily Nulph

Since starting stand up comedy she has entertained in several nursing homes, camp grounds and theaters. Her favorite place is Krackpots in Massillon. Emily enjoys making people laugh. Her husband thinks she is Lucy from I Love Lucy. There is never a dull moment.

Jason Resler

Jason Resler is a stand-up comedian and a writer. He has also done a little bit of bad acting. Never the less he has performed improv with Academy Award winner Robin Williams in front of a sold out theatre. He is a well decorated US Naval war veteran, a father, and he has resigned from the US Postal Service, voluntarily, after numerous disagreements with management. He listens to 80's metal bands. He is a baseball fanatic, a road warrior, and an alternative highschool spelling bee champion. Hailing from Sacramento Jason is blue-collar from the north, laid back yet enthusiastic, and more self-educated than un-educated.

Jason has wanted to be a comedian ever since he was convinced, mostly by his own coaches, that he'd probably never be able to hit a big league curve ball. Now he headlines at top comedy clubs, resort casinos, universities, and theatres nationwide with over 200 showdates anually since '98.
