Comedy Gate is a once-monthly stand-up showcase featuring talent from around Montana, and the greater North West region. Established in March 2015, Comedy Gate became the steady sailing ship of the Bozeman stand-up scene, weathering many great exoduses and double bookings (sorry to all the DJs who were hurt along the way). Originally founded by Garrison Choitz, Roerick Sweeney, Alexander Kavon and Thomas Blake, and greatly furthered by Jenna Eliel and Zachary Martinez, Comedy Gate now exists as an opportunity for the shady underbelly of Bozeman performance to sneak a tan in the spotlight of stand-up comedy. Come out for a good time with locally sourced jokes, grass fed humor and don't forget to bring your laughing shoes!

Jenna Eliel
Jenna Eliel
Jenna Eliel is a native of Montana. She honed her brand of humor in high school when she realized she would never look cool hopping a chain link fence and, really, shouldn't have ever tried. These days, she spends her time watching excessive amounts of "animal odd couple" videos while double-fisting ham sandwiches and sobbing over her own hypocrisy. She dreams of a world that reflects the pure love of a lamb and his kitten best friend. She was a finalist in Missoula's 2018 Homegrown Comedy Competition.
Aaron Juhl
Comic since 2014. Three time finalist in the Missoula Comedy Competition. Sold out Madison Square Garden four times (well, almost one time). Lives and works in Missoula, but originally from the treasure of the Treasure State: Butte, America. Blue eyes, hair.
Deanna Invergo
Deanna Invergo
Deanna Invergo is a Chicago native who has been living in Bozeman for about 9 years. A lifelong fan of stand-up comedy, she has been writing jokes for nearly a decade. She only recently decided to put her background in insect ecology to good use and take up the mic and share her unique blend of social commentary and self-deprecating humor. Yes, there will be bug puns. She prefers gin.
Charlie Of Doom
Charlie of Doom (aka Charlie Bernstein) is known throughout Bozeman as a comedian, musician, and all around bad guy. When he's not making people laugh or ears bleed, he can usually be found somewhere around town doing unsavory things.
Zachary Martinez
Zachary Martinez
Zachary Martinez is a stand up comic originally from Southeast Louisiana. After moving to Bozeman in 2005 due to Hurricane Katrina, he has been bouncing between the two states ever since. Having been raised in an Italian bakery, and earning a degree in Criminology from MSU, the next logical step was stand up comedy. This is upsetting to many people, including his mother, who reminds him constantly that "law school is only 3 years".
Garrison Choitz
Garrison  Choitz
Garrison Choitz has been in the joke saying game for a little over 4 years. He has garnered his comedic styling by staring deeply into the abyss of social constructs and the failings of human language to communicate effectively. He'd like you to be disoriented by his jokes, and to perhaps glimpse the peeling paint of the institutions we've all come to accept as reality.
