Meet the Comedians:
We are fortunate to have Dan Swartwout join us again this year. Dan has been a part of all five Kicking Cancer Events. Dan’s high energy comedy performances have been instrumental in the growth of this charity event. Dan always assembles an outstanding team of comedians. This year we are honored to have Dino Tripodis, David McCreary, Jason Banks and Jeff Robinson with us. Thank you, Dan, Dino, David, Jason and Jeff for contributing your time and talent toward the fight against cancer.

David McCreary – David McCreary has been performing comedy and magic since he was twenty years old. Combining rapid-fire quick wit and unbelievable sleight of hand, David will have you scratching your head one moment and holding your sides from laughter the next. David takes pride in performing magic that’s not “cheesy” – but magic you’ll be talking about for weeks and months to come. David has also been the host of the Ohio Lottery Game Show Cash Explosion since 2007.
Jason Banks – Jason has a unique and refreshing style of comedy that has led to performances in some of the nation’s hottest rooms. He recently recorded his first national TV appearance for Laff Mobb’s Laff Tracks, which airs on Tru TV. His natural ability to connect with any crowd with humorous yet over exaggerated stories has placed him as one of the top comedians in the Midwest. After winning the funniest person in Columbus contest as well as being named funniest person in Ohio, Jason has shared the stage with big names such as Jim Breuer, Carlos Mencia, Bruce Bruce, and Gary Owen.
Jeff Robinson – Jeff Robinson has performed comedy in clubs and at charity and corporate shows throughout the Midwest, working with such comics as Brian Regan and Bobby Collins.
