This is where our funniest people in Chicago get recognized!
It’s Your Gyrl, Ms. Carmen aka Platinum Voice PR bringing another Platinum Featured Comedian to you!
The Funny Man of the Month is
I had the pleaseure of meeting this gentleman about 2 years ago at Antowin Wimberly’s “Foul Mouth Comedy Tour”. I must say that this guy is truly funny and I know it wasn’t the alcohol. He joked about about real life instances and I was in touch with some of them.
Are you ready for the truth? Well, here it is. Robert “Stick” McClay is unmistakably one of the hottest comics in The Windy City. Stick’s comedy offers a blend of compelling hilarity, urban charisma, and undeniable truth. He’s been said to bring the raw, real, truth – hence, his alias…The Truth Teller.
The Chicago born and raised comic fuels his comedy with mind-stimulating anecdotes and day-to-day themes that his audiences are sure to embrace. Stick has worked several stages in his hometown, including being a runner-up in the 2002 Canadian Mist Comedy Search.
In addition to performances at clubs such as Paje’ and Jokes and Notes, Stick has hosted poetry nights at Sinnabar Nightclub and Funky Buddha Lounge. During his stint on the comedy scene Stick has headlined with established and rising comedians within the Chicago circuit and across the country. He has been proclaimed “the next big thing” in stand-up comedy from the likes of Deon Cole, Lil Rel, and Damn Fool – just to name a few.
Stick is very excited to return to the stage. While stand-up is his current focus, the talented Stick has a few long-term aspirations as well. He plans to perform on a showcase titled The Three Underground Kings of Comedy along with some fellow comedians. He also plans to develop an organization called Comics with a Cause. In his own words: “This organization will represent outrageous, hilarious, ‘in yo face,’ truth tellin’, to the bone, funny as hell comedy.”
Stick’s plans to comically highlight the ‘imperfections’ of daily life and provide positive solutions to them. In the long run he plans to star in and write screenplays and movies that reflect the same comedy that he presents on stage.

The 1st single off of the Shots Fired Soundtrack – Shots – By Coriz TheWrita, T.R.O.Y, Prince Ghost, and Velle Vell
Shots Fired is an action/comedy about two totally opposite detectives, who are forced to become partners and work the biggest case of their careers. Kevin Payne, an overly aggressive, burned out, thrill-seeker, has cost the city millions in damages as a result of his heroics. Marcus Banks, a weed-smoking, self-hating alcoholic who not only has gotten his captain / uncle reprimanded on several occasions, but his fellow officers shot while on duty. Both of these men have different values and agendas, but they have to somehow coincide to solve the murder of world-renowned scientist John Mangenelli Sr. Shots Fired is a non-stop action/ comedy that will leave people at the edge of their seats.
