We’re bringing a night of stand-up sketch, & a bit of improv from two of the best comics in the midwest! Steven Lyons & Jamie Campbell are reuniting for a limited-run comedy tour that will hit a handful of lucky cities this October. The duo met when they were both stand-out performers in Chicago’s world-famous comedy scene. Two twelve year-olds trapped inside the bodies of 30-something men, their act combines sketch comedy, stand-up, improvisation, and any other mix of dumb fun they can think of!

Opening act TBA.

Credits:
Before disbanding when both left Chicago, they collaborated on the sketch comedy/talk show Talk Hard, which was named Chicago’s “Best Sketch/Improv Troupe” by The Chicago Reader. The duo has performed on numerous stages, including The CSz Theater, Laugh Out Loud Comedy, Chicago Underground Comedy, Under The Gun Theater, and as headliners at the Columbus Improv Festival. They appeared on television sets across the nation as guests on Steve Gadlin’s Star Makers. Steven now resides back in his home country of New Zealand, but is returning to the U.S. for a brief stint, making this very limited reunion tour possible. Don’t miss this rare chance to see Lyons & Campbell return to the stage!

About Steven:
Steven Lyons has performed comedy around the globe including Chicago, London, Boston, Bermuda, Vancouver, New York, Calgary, Indiana, across the Caribbean and even Auckland, New Zealand (where he lives)! Steven makes comedy hugs for your ears with his absurd yet empathetic views on life and language. Steven is a member of New Zealand’s renowned Improv Bandits, has performed with Second City Theatricals aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines, and was a professional ensemble member at ComedySportz Chicago and Laugh Out Loud Theater. Having moved back to Nz from America in late 2016 his stand up performances made him a National Raw Quest Grand Finalist in 2017, he also co-hosts the I’ll Be Back Catalogue (Nz Comedy Guild nominated best podcast) and performs stand up regularly around Auckland.

“He hit us with quick-fire puns, well-written material and ended with some impressive impressions used to brilliant comedic effect.”

    In May of 2020, Regional Performing Arts lost Colton Darr, one of our talented young actors. Colton had a condition called Long QT Syndrome that caused him to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest. After this loss, Regional wanted to take action to both honor Colt’s memory and continue his legacy by finding a way for students to participate in the performing arts who might not have the financial means to do so. Through a partnership with the Porter County Community Foundation, the Colton Darr Memorial Arts Fund was born. The goal of this fund is to raise an untouched principal of at least $10,000, which will result in roughly $500 of awardable monies each year to help students afford performing arts experiences wherever they may go.
    Join us LIVE on YouTube for the first ever Colton Darr Memorial Arts Fund Telethon! The evening will be filled with a variety of musical acts in a loving tribute to Colt's memory.
