Your next performer is Brandon "Shake" Rainwater. Brandon Rainwater is not afraid of the truth. The semi-proud father of two children, he gives audiences his brutally honest - yet always hilarious - take on parenting, different generations and other absurdities of daily life. Born and raised in South Carolina, Brandon brings a sweet Southern flavor to his comedy that makes him hard to hate and easy to love. Brandon has opened up for Dick Gregory, Julia Scoggions , Rodney Perry, Chris Kattan, Anthony Johnson aka smokey from Friday and more. Always brining his energetic humor and random expression to the stage.

And finally, your Headliner is Shivani Nadarajah. Shivani is a local Greenville comedian and improviser with Alchemy Comedy Theater. She was the runner up in the 2014 South Carolina's funniest Comic Competition and is often featured at the Greenville Comedy Zone. Born Canadian, bred Sri Lankan and raised Southern at heart, Shivani’s humor is a healthy mix of what happens when East meets West. She is a social butterfly andbest known as Upstate's brown sound that gets around!
