Campbell and Steven Lyons are two comedians from different sides of the
world, coming together for a limited, can-t miss, co-headlining tour in
2019! Hailing from New Zealand and Kansas City, respectively, the two
comedians met when they were both stand-out performers in Chicago’s
world-famous comedy scene, where they collaborated on the sketch/talk
show Talk Hard, which was named Chicago’s “Best Sketch/Improv Troupe” by
The Chicago Reader.
They also appeared on television sets
across the nation as guests on Steve Gadlin's Star Makers. In this
reunion tour, they bring their individual, critically-acclaimed styles
to the stage before coming together to close the show in an improvised
“riff-off” that makes every show unique and interactive!
