At some point after starting a career in stand-up comedy, one realizes that you might have to make some sort of move. For St. Louis-native Gabe Kea, that move was to Cincinnati. He was born to Canadian parents who settled in St. Louis after moving around the U.S. several times. "Everybody says it’s a great place to raise a family,'" Kea points out. "The running joke is that that should be the town motto." After finally working up the nerve to do stand-up in college, Kea realized he needed to get out there and just do it, feeling a change of comedy scene might be just the tonic.
After a talk with Michael Kurtz, who runs Go Bananas, he decided the Queen City was the place he ought to be.
