MEET YOUR HEADLINERS: Megan Gailey and Liza Treyger
A native and current resident of Skokie, IL Liza Treyger is a rising star in the Chicago comedy scene. In 2012, Liza was named one of Comedy Central's 'Comics to Watch' at the NY Comedy Festival. At the festival, she got to go watch comedy shows with two professional wrestlers. They ate cake balls together and it was amazing! In 2012, she also participated in the TBS 'Just for Laughs' festival in Chicago, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Laugh Your Asheville Off Festival. Liza lived her teenage dream by meeting Steve-O of Jackass fame and featuring for him at Zanies in Rosemont, IL. She majored in Sociology in college so she doesn't have many skills outside of telling jokes. She does enjoy rollerblading, making collages, shopping, going out to eat, eating in bed, laying outside, attending baseball games, and chatting.
Megan Gailey grew up in Indianapolis, the perfect town to raise a delusional upper-middle class Midwestern socialite. With a love of flirting and vacationing, it was a natural fit to leave the monotonous exercise schedule for a life of stand-up. In the past year Gailey was a finalist in NYC’s Laughing Devil Festival, a featured performer at the Traverse City Winter Comedy Festival and selected as one of Comedy Central’s Chicago Comics to Watch. Megan was recently featured in Chicago Magazine for her comedic risk taking and amazing dresses. And she has finally performed alongside enough famous people that her older brothers no longer hate her. As a founding member and co-host of the Chicago comedy podcast "Naked Sports Live, Megan works and applies makeup at a fanatical pace. She also continues to search for a rich husband, just in case.
