Nick Higdon, Gretchen Schultz, and Zach Wycuff

Nick Higdon began performing standup in Louisville in 2020 after months of boredom from being locked inside during the pandemic. He moved to Cincinnati a year later to work on his craft and has steadily found his place in the scene. He regularly hosts at Go Bananas here in Cincy and has opened for national talents such as Jeremiah Watkins, Sean Patton, and Steve Byrne. He also regularly runs the Hi-Fi open mic on Tuesdays.

Gretchen Schultz started her standup career during the pandemic and has been working hard ever since. Running shows all over town and making it to the final round in the 2022 Funniest Person in Cincinnati contest her first year competing, she has proven to be a local favorite. On most Friday nights, you can spot Gretchen running an open mic/roast battle over at Twenties in Walnut Hills. You may even see her toot the flute during the show.

Zach Wycuff is a nationally-touring stand-up comedian. He's been featured in SF Sketchfest, the North Carolina Comedy Festival, and the Cleveland Comedy Festival, among many others. Drawing on his unique past growing up on the road as a member of a family band (true story!), Zach charms and delights audiences with his storytelling and quick wit. Zach got his start in the Midwest, being named the Funniest Person in Cincinnati. He's also appeared on Jerry Springer's show (the podcast, not the...other thing). Come hang with this loveable dork and you might just leave having found a new best friend.”

Why Helltown?

In the late 1800s, our beloved community of #Northside45223 was nicknamed Helltown, because of the immigrant and unwelcome population and its rowdy bars. It was seen as a negative moniker. At Bombs Away! We believe that the unwelcome, the rapscallions, the neer-do-wells and the rowdy taverns are what make Northside home.
