Best Stand-Up Comedian

1st Place: Cullen Ryan
2nd Place: Eric Christenson
3rd Place: Ryan Kahl


This past year has seen big growth for area standup, with lots of new performers and events. First-place comedian Cullen Ryan is definitely a big part of this growth. He has performed in numerous shows at several Eau Claire venues this past year and is a long-time resident at The Plus’ open mic (where most local comedians have gotten their start); Ryan’s comedy and warm personality have made it a welcoming place to try standup. Second place comedian Eric Christenson is one such newcomer, getting his start just this spring as a regular at The Plus, and has since been seen on the bill at lots of local events including opening for The Frenettes at The Mousetrap. Third place (and yet another Plus regular) is the hilarious Ryan Kahl, who has been doing stand-up in the area for several years and was seen most recently hosting “The Standup Getdown” at the House of Rock. –Jordan Duroe
