BRANDON YOUNG

Brandon Young is a family-friendly comedian based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan who's been able to use a wide variety of topics ranging from growing up in a small town with his weird family to drinking fountains at restaurants and why he despises people who dip french fries into milkshakes, to reach a vast array of people. His intelligently crafted material is a hit with all types of audiences.

Originally from a small town in Michigan called Oscoda, Brandon is middle-aged, middle-classed, married to a woman way out of his league, has no kids, and owns a dog. Basically, his life is that of every leading man in every sitcom from the 1960's. He brings his Midwest charm and likability to a world that truly needs it.

SHANNON ALLISON

Passionate about raising awareness for Alzheimer's disease, Shannon Allison, has been organizing fundraisers and raising awareness and money for the Alzheimer's Association's Walk to End Alzheimer's since 2011. Shannon started her family's Walk team, which she named Papa's Angels after her grandfather aka Papa. Papa was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2006 and in 2011 after seeing Papa's cognitive abilities and health decline, Shannon decided to get involved. The family now walks in memory of Papa, who passed in 2012, Shannon's maternal grandparents who both passed in 2015 from Parkinson's Disease, and her paternal grandmother aka Mema, who passed in 2017 from Parkinson's.  Together with her family, she has created and organized numerous events over the years and has raised and donated over $50,000 to the Alzheimer's Association. In 2015 the Oscoda-AuSable Chamber of Commerce named Shannon as Citizen of the Year for her fundraising achievements in the community.
