About Peter

Peter-john Byrnes has been described as having “a voice both hilarious and at times uncomfortable in the best of ways.” He eschews typical subject matter in favor of informing audiences about the inevitability of human decline, the end of civilization, and other light-hearted fare. He also uses words like “eschews.” He averages about two H.P. Lovecraft references a show.

His album recording, “American History XXX,” played to sold-out audiences at the Indianapolis Fringe festival in 2014 and was listed as a top pick by both the alternative weekly NUVO and the Indianapolis Star newspaper.

Byrnes started performing stand-up professionally in 1985 at the age of seventeen. He has opened for the likes of Orlando Jones, Erin Foley, Cameron Esposito, Dan Telfer, and Hari Kondabolu. Festival appearances include Limestone Comedy Festival 2013 (Bloomington IN), Just For Laughs Chicago 2013, and the Arch City Comedy Festival 2015 (Columbus OH).

His comedy podcast, This Week in Despair (, has listeners in over 45 countries. He is inexplicably popular in Finland.

About Cody

Cody Melcher is a witwanton gentleman who weaves a tapestry of obscure observations and personal proclivities.

Based in Chicago, he is the producer of 100 Proof Comedy at CSz Chicago, half of the celebrated sketch duo Melcher & Hauser, Co-Admiral of The Chicago Nerd Comedy Festival, and host of the critically-acclaimed podcast Tomefoolery. He has performed at SF Sketchfest, The Comedy Exposition, Arch City Comedy Festival, PrideFest Milwaukee, and more. He moderated panels for the 2015 Space City Comic Con, and was a Finalist in The Advocate’s National Queer Comedy Search and the 2016 Laughing Devil Comedy Festival.

The Chicago Tribune has called him “ridiculously zesty”.
