Lou Santini


Celebrate the Kick-Off of the Cleveland Comedy Festival with Cleveland's Own Lou Santini

Come early to hear Lou’s stories about his life in comedy, part of our Cleveland Stories series.



Why you should see this show…

Comedian, author, wedding host, DJ – Lou Santini has done it all. Santini got his start in radio at the University of Akron, learning under the tutelage of legendary radio personalities Tom Beck and John Gorman. He was on the airwaves of WMMS in Cleveland from 1994 to ’97 before relocating to Los Angeles to pursue a career in standup and acting. Lou Santini returns to Cleveland for a night of fun and laughs you won’t want to miss.

Be sure to also arrive before the show for a special edition of Cleveland Stories in our Supper Club. He will be sharing how his journey in comedy began, brought him to L.A., and where it’s taking him. After Cleveland Stories, Lou will kick off the Cleveland Comedy Festival. The Cleveland Comedy Festival began in 2008 as a celebration of local, independent comedy and has grown into much, much more in 8 years. The mission remains the same — to celebrate Cleveland’s comedic past, present and future and help promote one of Cleveland’s greatest exports — our collective sense of humor and comedic talent.
