Chicago’s Kellye Howard to Headline Comedy on the Rocks at Journeyman Distillery, May 10th

Journeyman Distillery’s Maxwell Tidey is looking to build on December’s sold out Comedy on the Rocks premier with a May line up that’s sure to slay.

Tidey has pursued his passion for comedy, producing local shows and working at the Drop Comedy Club in South Bend. A part-time server at Journeyman’s Staymaker Restaurant, he brought the idea of a comedy show to owners, Johanna and Bill Welter.

“We were open to giving it a try, but no question, Max’s enthusiasm is what made it a success,” the Welter’s agree. “His energy is contagious… and persuasive,” notes Johanna.

Tidey will reprise his role as host and producer of Comedy on the Rocks, importing top Chicago talent to Journeyman’s Still Room.

Comedy on the Rocks featured performer, Adam Gilbert of Fort Wayne, IN, has opened for the likes of writer/comedian Brian Posehn and notes that he is, “pretty great on road trips.”

Gilbert opens for headliner Kellye Howard. Named Chicago’s “boldest” comedian by the Chicago Sun-times, Howard takes inspiration from her experiences as a mother, daughter, wife, and woman. She was recently featured at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and has been seen on Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, FOX Laughs, and more. In her “spare” time she hosts the weekly podcast series “Be Less Petty.”

Stand up returns to Journeyman Distillery at 8:00pm  on May 10th. Admission is $20 per person and includes one complimentary beverage. Space is limited. Tickets are available online at and on Eventbrite. For more information phone 269-820-2050.
