Meet the Comedians:
We are fortunate to have Dan Swartwout join us again this year. Dan has been a part of all six 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. At this time, we are pleased to announce that David McCreary will be back performing. Dan is working to finalize the lineup with additional comedians being named shortly. Thank you, Dan and David 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 has also been the host of the Ohio Lottery Game Show Cash Explosion since 2007.
Mike Merryfield – In a business where too many performers rely on shtick or the latest political joke du jour to get laughs, Mike Merryfield is refreshingly original. His act never feels fake or forced. By simply being himself, he’s become a comic on the verge of stardom. Accomplishments include: Winner season 3 Comcast’s Trial by Laughter, Runner up in the 37th Annual San Francisco Comedy Competition, One of the original “Lucky 21” at the HBO Comedy Festival, 2 different one hour specials on SiriusXM radio, First album “Live at Loonies” was considered for Grammy Nomination, 3 albums on iTunes.
