Headlining multiple US Comedy Clubs and others around the world Ali has shown his ability to engage diverse audiences leaving many on their feet talking everything from fatherhood, politics, grocery shopping and education to Nigerian stripper associations. The most recent winner of Comedy Central’s Up Next Competition Houston’s Ali has appeared on Showtime’s Ladies Night Out Tour, Centric’s 2014 All Star Taping, BET’s Comic View and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam. With 3 released albums, 2 just lastyear, Ali is preparing a 5th for 2016.

When people ask “How do you become a bartender? Do you go to school?”, I tell them that what you really need to do is start working in the industry in the front of the house and work your way up from there.
Many of the bartenders I speak with have a similar story. They were not fully formed behind the bar, like a clay sculpture brought to life with Jägermeister and some citrus. They were forged in the industry, spending years learning the industry before they were placed behind the bar. There was a big shift at the Dayton Funny Bone in 2014. Their two long-standing bartenders, within months of each other, were getting ready to depart for new ventures. This meant the Funny Bone needed a new bartender that had almost a blank slate to work with. Fortunately for them, Molly Peppo was waiting in the wings.
Molly had come to the Dayton Funny Bone when it first opened in 2006. She was looking for a little extra money on the side, and serving at a comedy club was the right fit for her. As a working mom, it gave her time with her family during the week. Over time, she started to develop an interest in becoming a bartender. Before Molly made the transition, she was one of the senior servers on the staff. Her training for bartending was a slow process, and she picked up a few shifts behind the stick when one of the other bartenders was out for a night.
After years on the floor, she became a full-time bartender. Then, in rapid succession, the bar manager for the club. She went right to work on the huge task she was given, making sweeping changes to the menu. She cleaned house, switching up many of the liquors and beers that had been behind the bar for years. There was a greater focus on building the craft beer selection, knowing that many of the people coming through the doors were beer drinkers. The cocktail menu was also redeveloped over time as the old spirits flowed out and the new spirits flowed in. It was developed to handle the speed of a comedy show, which typically hits fast and early and then dies off. This wonder woman then started training a few other bartenders to build out the rest of her team.
The look of the bar has also been updated. Gone are the shelves of liquor showing off the selection. Molly preferred a clean look, and that is what she created. The craft beers of the month are displayed at the front of the bar for all to see. She is continuing to improve her craft, diving into the craft beer scene while learning more all the time about cocktails. Molly’s path to becoming a bartender was something she was used to; hard work and patience to get where she wanted to be. She built the bar she wanted to create and brought it to life.
How did you get into bartending?
After working as a server for seven years at the club, I decided to learn how to make the drinks I was selling.
What is your favorite drink to make?
This is tricky. If it’s a not crazy busy night I enjoy making cosmos or flavored martinis. However, if it’s a sold out show give me any other drink to make aside from those!!
Which drink makes you internally cringe?
I give this award to the Old Fashioned.
Do you have a favorite spirit you like to work with?
When you go out for a drink in Dayton, where is your favorite place to go?
I’d have to say any of the local breweries. I love the patrons there, the bartenders are super knowledgeable & the atmosphere is always fun.
Who is the most famous person you have served?
I’d have to say Dave Chapelle or Charlie Murphy.
What do you do when you are not bartending?
I’m out taking mini road trips to new breweries or busy being a full-time mom.
What are your favorite trends from the last year?
Possibly the usage of craft beers in some cocktails.
What advice do you want to give bartenders just getting into the business?
The adrenaline rush is crazy addictive!!
What do you love most about Dayton?
I love there are so many cool little local places to hang out right in my own backyard.
Most interesting thing you have seen from behind the bar?
Sheryl Underwood, Stand Up Comedian and co-host of “The Talk, spent $1000 on shots for a room full of her fans.
How has bartending changed in the time you have been in the industry?
I think people are finally realizing there is more to life than a Rum & Coke or a plain domestic beer.
What do you wish customers knew that helped you do your job?
When ordering a drink with no ice doesn’t mean more liquor. When a customer asks me to “hook it up” makes me do just the opposite! Trust me if you’re nice to me I will take care of you.
If you were not a bartender, what career would you be pursuing?
Becoming a nurse.
Typically we feature Food Adventure jaunts to local food joints, but today here is a story of a local comedian friend who will be feeding the crowd some comedy next weekend. It is the “in progress” story of a man settling in from L.A. back to Dayton. For 2 years and 2 months he has been back in the Miami Valley (not that he’s counting). It has given him time to reflect and process where he has been, and see how he can use those skills to further develop a career in his hometown.
Matthew Barnard grew up in Centerville, Ohio and moved to Los Angeles in the late 1990’s to pursue a love of all things entertainment. This included writing, acting, producing, directing with a heavy dose of improv and stand up comedy. After 16 years in the city of Angels, he came back home to Dayton in 2015. He has continued to feed his passion for comedy and entertainment, which is near and dear to his heart.
One example of his current works is getting familiar with the comedy scene in Ohio. Matt will be performing at Wiley’s Comedy Club on Sunday,
April 30 at 8 pm with lots of local comedians in an open mic format. He has recently performed there and other comedy clubs in Cincinnati, etc. It is really second nature for this seasoned artist.
MATT’S COMEDY and ENTERTAINMENT RESUME:
Matt trained in comedy at places like The Groundlings, ACME Comedy Theatre, Improv Olympic and Second City-Los Angeles. One of his long running improv groups was “Swordfight” which included comedians who had won Oscars in Animation. One of his comedy mentors, Peter Murrieta, is a two time Emmy winner as a comedy writer.
Matt worked for Paramount Pictures music division, Dreamworks, The Hollywood Reporter, The Celebration Theatre (the longest running gay themed play and theatre company in LA) and the Writers Guild of America. He rubbed shoulders with many brilliant performers, some who went on to success, such as Tessa Thompson, who played the main love interest in the 2016 movie “Creed.”
FOND MEMORIES OF L.A.
Matt always says “Comedy broke me out of my shell, expanded my perspective and made me willing to tap into any situation and never be afraid.”
He enjoyed living in LA during his late 20’s and 30’s, but as time went by, the big city can grind on anyone. After 16 years, it was his desire to return to his roots and begin new ventures. But coming home to the Midwest brings new challenges and new obstacles.
Being a gay man in L.A. was easy. So many people are “out.” and it’s no big deal. to find friends and network with people in show business who have an artistic streak.
Dating can be tougher when you are not in a big city and even if you are in a metropolis, dating that leads to committed relationships can be difficult as well. Matt used to say “it can be tough to find a great Regaytionship”. And a new term and company was born!
Earlier this year, Matt launched Regaytionships.com, a personalized match-making service for the LGBT community. For more info on membership, please visit Regaytionships.com or for marketing, blog, advertising, PR or other business related questions, please send an email to [email protected]. Or follow them on twitter.
It was this new confidence that lead him to write, create and co-star in his own scripted web series “Spin The Bottle” which was accepted by FunnyOrDie.com and has achieved over 600,000 hits. Another goal of Matt is to keep that series going, possibly with local filmmakers. He would also like to move on to other acting, writing and producing projects that he has up his sleeve.
Matt may have left the capital of entertainment behind, but it’s still deeply rooted in his heart and mind.
Come see Matt and other comics April 30th at open mic night. Eat, Drink and be Merry…

Started at Talawanda now we here
Gary Owen, local-ish comedian, is about to take over the world. Ok, he’s not super local, but he grew up in the Cincy area and now calls Cincinnati home, so that counts, right? Just say yes, and let’s keep it moving.
When he’s not yelling “Who Dey!”, Gary is making people laugh. Hysterically. A lot of people, actually, and they’ve been laughing for over a decade.
You may know him as Mr. Broccoli from Daddy Day Care, Zach the barber from House of Payne, or any number of his scene stealing movie roles. Don’t act like you weren’t hoping your boyfriend was taking notes during his role as Bennett in Think Like A Man (and Think Like A Man Too), we know better. We know.
But you have to take it back a little further. After high school, Gary enlisted in the U.S. Navy. After serving on the Presidential Honor Guard, he found comedy. Being named “Funniest Serviceman in America” was only the beginning. He quickly found a huge African American fan base and was named the “Funniest Black Comedian” in San Diego. Soon he could be seen gracing the stage of BET’s ComicView, with appearances that lead him to the hosting gig.
Now the whole team’s here
Now, it’s coming full circle. Once again, Gary answered when BET called, except this time, it was for his own reality tv show. A statement from BET reads as follows:
“Gary Owen is arguably Black America’s most beloved non-Black comic. He became part of the family as the first Caucasian man to host BET’s ComicView, and confirmed he was here to stay with his star turns in the Think Like A Man films, Ride Along and Meet The Blacks. He also starred in his own hit stand-up comedy specials including ‘I Agree With Myself,’ ‘True Story’ and the upcoming ‘I Got My Associates.’ Now, he brings his own interracial and blended family to BET in a 30-minute unscripted series that is colorful, truthful and hysterical. Gary Owen loves his wife so much, he wants to marry her again — and the path down the aisle is paved with non-stop laughter as he balances planning a wedding with raising his three rambunctious children and growing his white-hot career. ‘GARY OWEN FAMILY’ is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions. Bunim/Murray’s Gil Goldschein and Jeff Jenkins serve as executive producers along with Gary Owen, Stella Bulochnikov, Brian Sher and TIP ‘T.I.’ Harris,”
**Gary Owen Family is currently in production
You can catch Gary Owen at the Dayton Funny Bone (click for tix) this week, August 16 & 17 at 7:30pm. This is a special engagement and WILL sell out, so make sure you get your tickets. I’ve seen Gary perform dozens of times and I can promise you, this ticket will be worth every cent. He’s hilarious. Oh, and make sure you smile for the cameras.
Lucky for you, Dayton Most Metro has partnered with the Dayton Funny Bone to give away a few FREE tickets! We’ll hold the contest on our Facebook page, so keep an eye out!
**if you didn’t read that header in Gary Owen’s voice, go on ahead and look for his special, titled True Story and thank me later, after your abs heal from the laugh-crying.
The Black Box Improv Theater is proud to welcome Asperger’s Are Us to Dayton! After having Netflix pick up their documentary, these guys are touring all over the U.S. promoting it. Asperger’s Are Us is the first comedy troupe consisting of openly autistic people. We’re not a charity & we’re not poking fun at Asperger’s.
I had the pleasure of catching up with local funny guy, Trace Martin. He’s hosting the upcoming open mic night at Wiley’s, as well as other events all over town. I wanted to see what makes this new comedian tick, and where I can catch his next sets!
Q. What made you take the leap of faith to actually do your first stand-up gig?
A. I have been telling jokes since I was 11 years old, but writing and performing your own material, that was a different beast altogether. I have always loved stand-up and thought it would be fun to try to get laughs off of something I had written, not just being a goofball, although that still gets a laugh. Performing actual stand-up comedy is much harder than it looks. I wrote jokes for about 8 years, and made it my goal to perform before I turned 50 years old. I saw a guy do his set at the old Jokers Comedy Café and I wasn’t impressed, but he still got some laughs. I thought “Well hell, I can do better than that.” So I started writing my set and practicing in the bathroom mirror.
Q. Is doing stand-up intimidating or the ultimate rush?
A. Hosting a comedy show is actually a lot of work. Not only do you open the show – so you have to be funny right out of the gate – but you have to know how to warm up the audience, gauge the room and get them fired up to receive the upcoming comedians. Then you have to get each comedian’s name, a bit about them, and be witty on your feet, so you can introduce them in an interesting and funny way that helps them launch into their particular bits. There’s a lot of thought and planning that has to happen quickly, not to mention keeping the energy of the room going between acts.
Q. What is the inspiration of your material typically?
A. I have so much life experience to draw from… and I use it all. I served in the military as a Combat Engineer in the Army and I’ve worked for a police department in Colorado. Work-related stuff is fun because everyone has a work history, good or bad. I drink and have have done “experimental research” with various forms of mind-altering substances in the past, as a lot of people have. Those experiences are always great material. I have been married for 26 wonderful years and I get a lot material from that, because many can relate to that. My wife, Samantha, is also my writing partner, and a great sounding board for new material. She has been to enough comedy shows to know what works and what needs more work. We still make each other laugh every day.
Q. Who are your favorite comedians?
A. First and foremost, George Carlin. His observational humor captured my heart as a kid from the first time I saw him. Steve Martin gave me a love of slapstick and physical, goofy humor, from his early days on Saturday Night Live. Robin Williams gave me a love of improvisation – he could do it like no one else. Finally, Tim Allen, during his early stand-up comedy days, had such a great way of communicating “funny”, often without words. All of these guys still make me laugh to this day!
Q. What is the Dayton comedy scene like, especially for those who are new to going to comedy here?
A. The Comedy scene in Dayton is Fan-FREAKIN’-tastic!! Whether you’re a new comic or a seasoned veteran who wants to work on new material, you can get stage time 5 to 6 times a week at various clubs and venues around town. Sometimes you can hit 2 shows a night. If you like to enjoy laughing as a great evening out with friends, there are many Open Mic nights and comedy showcases happening all over Dayton, almost any day of the week! Check on Facebook for Dayton Comics for show listings, or any of the many other resources dedicated to local comedy.
Q. What do you hope to accomplish through your comedy?
A. I like to give people the opportunity to relax and laugh. So much of life is so serious these days. I like to make people laugh, in a way that stays with them, far after the show. I love to hear that people are still thinking of one of my bits days–even weeks–later, and still laughing about it. That gives me great satisfaction. Making a room full of strangers laugh is the the best thing ever!
Where to see Trace Martin perform this weekend:

24 years ago, a brash, take-no-bs broad from Chicago landed in the little hamlet of Dayton. She thought she’d be here for 90 days, because WHY Dayton? Just quick consulting gig at a comedy club owned by the creator of Pound Puppies. But she stayed a little longer and ended up buying the place. Who could have imagined the next 25 years? Not, Lisa Grigsby .
Wooed by the allure of valet parking at the airport (seriously, I’m not even making that up) Grigs quickly made her mark in Dayton. She brought with her a wealth of knowledge and some pretty badass connections. That dark little room with the caricatures on the walls, low ceilings, and “playful” lobby became a mecca of sorts for comedians at all stages in their career. If you can survive 2nd show Friday in Dayton, you were definitely going to be a star.
The names you know and love now, have most likely worked out their early material in that smoke filled room. When Chris Rock wanted to try some jokes before filming a special, he called Lisa. The rowdy Dayton audiences were yelling “Git ‘Er Done” before Larry The Cable Guy had his own potato chips. Ron White? Yep, he’s the same now as he was decades ago driving a van from gig to gig, including Jokers. When you have The Original Kings Of Comedy on speed dial, you’re probably doing alright for yourself in the comedy world. Bless his heart, D.L. Hughley still has such nice things to say about Lisa, who was unafraid of brutal honesty at any given moment.
“My friend asked me if I wanted a frozen banana, I said “no, but I want a regular banana later, so … yeah”. ~Mitch Hedburg
She also wasn’t afraid to bring in the “too edgy for the midwest” comics, either. Doug Stanhope? Killed it here. Dave Attell taught the Jokers staff a few things about drinking. Who knew an offensive “woman” comic would wow the conservative Midwest crowd? Grigsby did when she brought Lisa Lampanelli, “The Queen Of Mean”. Though his comedy is PG, the song “Big Butter Jesus” by Heywood Banks, ruffled some feathers. You’ll likely understand where he was driving to when he first saw that magnificent engineering feat (RIP Butter Jesus).
Choose your favorite comedian doing a set on late night TV, and it’s pretty likely they have been booked by Lisa at some point in their career. The hit show “Last Comic Standing” has some alumni of that room. (Hi G-Rock Greggy Greg!) Greg Warren was once a corporate dude living the life of an upwardly mobile young professional. Then he quit to do comedy. I’m not sure if he’s thanking or blaming Grigsby at this point, but I bet he’s got a story or two about it.
There may or may not be tales that may or may not be confirmed about future Oscar winners being “politely” asked to leave the building. Shows from future major movie stars being stopped from the back mic when he was being disrespectful to the staff. An SNL star being dropped off somewhere in the middle of general area of the club or hotel (who knows?) for being legitimately nuts. Or intoxicated, whatever. You know these are the ones you want to hear the most about!
Another thing about Lisa. She was a fierce mama bear when it came to her “kids”. The kids were her staff. There were some that would breeze through that place like a revolving door, but there were others. Those are the ones who stayed. The lifers, affectionately called “f*&%rs” from time to time (yep, that really was a term of endearment). Working there wasn’t easy, you loved it or hated it. You were good at it or awful. You viewed Grigs as Satan, or, like many of us, you viewed her as a friend, mentor, teacher, motivator, “teller-of-truths-you-didn’t-want-to-hear”, and most importantly, the one who would encourage and cheer for your successes the loudest.
There is a lot of life that was lived in that room. Conversations that launched big life decisions, lifelong friendships formed, losses of those gone too soon, mourned. The stories. Oh my word the stories that could be told.
So. Many. Stories. Some good, some not so good, most questionable, but ALL entertaining.
And that’s why you’re reading this. It’s for the stories and what comes next.
If you know Lisa Grigsby, then you know, she is NOT one to toot her own horn. She is the brains behind the show. The one managing the creative concepts and logistics of events while inspiring those around her to jump in and give back to the community. Even though she has stepped away from the comedy biz and into the non-profit world, there are some damn good stories to tell. If we wait on her to tell them, we’ll be low on the list of priorities. Behind driving economic development for her adopted community, behind planning functions to further the mission of her favorite charities, and who knows what else.
So…it’s getting done anyway.
Next year marks the 25th Anniversary of the beginning of the Jokers era. My goal is to have a book done and in the process of being published by then. Or at least mostly written. Maybe edited? Who knows? What I’m saying is that a book is happening. She’s probably going to kick my butt for this, so how about we call it “pseudo-authorized” for the time being.
This is where I need YOUR help.
- Are you, have you ever been, or do you know a comedian? If yes, shoot me a quick email with a story or question & some contact info. And pass this along to your comedy friends. And your agent, because they probably have some words to add, too.
- Are you a former Joker? If you’ve seen that bathroom after a JUGS night, I KNOW you have stories. Let’s chat.
- Do you have a photo of Lisa from her days at Oklahoma University with big 80’s hair? This is needed.
- Do you have the stories of her time in Chicago (the beginnings of her career in comedy)
- The “I can’t stand her, she is so mean” stories
- The “thank god she talked some sense into me” stories
- The “she does great things in Dayton and I’m glad she’s my friend” stories
- The “I’m a struggling comic, but there might be some good dirt that will help this book sell and I’d like to be in it” stories.
- Are you any of the above and hope desperately that your name is not mentioned? Don’t worry, I’m setting up a gofundme to cover publishing costs (if needed), there will be a category for you.
Please send any and all info to [email protected] and you can find me on twitter either here: @nikkisayswhat or: @daytoncomedy
So there you have it. I’m probably going to go into hiding for a couple days, ready to emerge with a bottle of bourbon and an “I’m sorta but not really sorry” smile for when she says, “what in the f*&% is this?”. Help me remind her that this is exactly the type of thing she would encourage. Oddly enough, this article is being published on mostmetro.com which Lisa actually owns. You can’t imagine the sneakiness this took to get posted, just to send out the link to people.
“Jokers, doin it right. Jokers, open tonight. Come on in for a laugh or a bite. Make it a Jokers night tonight…”
