Clean Comedy Night Showcase - Philadelphia

Brian Atkinson is a comedian, voice actor, singer, and former radio personality. Brian commands the stage with his voice and confident, engaging storytelling. His good guy persona occasionally gives way to blunt and unexpected twists. Brian’s sharp, smart comedic style has been a hit at clubs, contests, corporate events, and festivals across the country including Bonkerz in Orlando, Crackers Indianapolis, Comedy Cabaret Philadelphia, Dr. Grins Grand Rapida, One Night Stan’s Detroit, Punchlines, Sunday Night Funnies, The Funny Stop Cleveland, and Gilda’s Laugh Fest. Brian was a Semi-Finalist in The 2019 Funniest Person in Grand Rapids contest and is a co-founder and host of Clean Comedy Time.

Comedian Dwayne Brake is “Smooth!" This New Jersey native began digging his comedic roots in Philadelphia's comedy club venues in 2001. The steady grind in front of both urban and mainstream audiences has helped shape his humor, and the result has been material that has proven to be clever, creative, and smart.

He was chosen to perform as one of the featured comedians in the 2015 and 2016 McDonald Gospelfest showcases, and proudly delivers jokes that are funny, relatable, and unapologetically clean.
