Tower City Headliner Alumni

Chris Fairbanks 2019


Quirky and lovable, Fairbanks was our first. His Conan appearance is one of our top 10. His style is not replicable. 

Eric Schwartz 2019


His ability to insert music into his act, make him a super exciting fun show to watch. 

Sarah Tiana 2019


From Reno 911 to Light's Out with David Spade to Rob Riggle's side kick, she's America's Sweetheart comic. 

Shane Torres 2020


Vulture magazine called his Guy Fieri bit on Conan was one of the top 100 bits of the 2000's.
