Wits & Giggles Stand-Up Comedy brought to you by Bud Light returns to the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena Saturday, February 13 at 7:30 p.m. The night features not 1, but 2 headliners. “The Educated Redneck” Dan Ellison and Mike Conley will mark history as the first Wits & Giggles Stand-Up Comedy event to boast 2 headliners in one show.

Dan Ellison, as known as “The Educated Redneck,” is traveling all the way from Virginia to bring Jamestown his down to earth humor. He graduated with an electrical degree in Ohio before realizing his true passion was in comedy. Ellison didn’t start performing until he was 27 but has made a 25 year career entertaining people in over 40 states and 1,000 venues. Ellison’s act reflects growing up in West Virginia with his views on everything from politics to women to kid’s toys. “The Educated Redneck” has honed his act to a broken beer bottle’s edge.

Akron, OH native Mike Conley has been performing throughout the Midwest since 1990. Conley has brought his act to a variety of venues including colleges, corporate events, radio and benefits. He has performed along with Louie Anderson, Sinbad, Chelsea Handler, Rocky LaPorte, and “Weird Al” Yankovich. His act covers the day-to-day occurrences we all experience but refuse to share with each other. Conley’s slant on family life, vacations, growing older, and being a single male never fail to entertain audiences.

Returning as the host of Wits ‘n Giggles is Robb Will, Jamestown, New York’s self-proclaimed 67th Funniest Comedian. Will has performed in Buffalo, Pittsburgh, and Southern Indiana where he draws from his life experiences and gives you reasons to laugh at them. Will has famously remarked, “I got into comedy because I needed to laugh, I am staying because you need to laugh.”
