Accidental Comedy Club’s Modern Kicks at The Happy Dog is one of the most exciting regular showcases in the Cleveland comedy scene and for good reason. You wouldn’t expect many people to show up to watch stand-up in the basement of a bar on a Wednesday night when the Cavs are playing the 5th game of a tied Eastern Conference finals series. Instead of having a low-turnout, Modern Kicks packed the room with 50+ audience members for an incredible night of comedy.
The show featured some of Cleveland’s finest comics, such as Yusuf Ali, Jasmyn Carter, Logan Rishaw, Tabitha Jones and John Wellington. There were special drop-in
sets from out-of-town comics Dorian Vasquez (Columbus) and Nick Dlouhy (Chicago). Then, of course, the show featured some fantastic sets from Accidental Comedy Club
’s roster of comedians: Brian Kenny, David Flynt, and the host Jimmie Graham.

The show was closed out with an extended set from Ramon Rivas II, his last show
in Cleveland before heading off to New Orleans to tape his Comedy Central special.
Congrats Ramon!
