Joe Madaus

Joe Madaus was born in Massachusetts; the son of a school teacher and a dairy farmer. He started standup comedy in 2007 and then moved to Key West in 2010 to work on a TV show that you've probably never heard of. When the production ran out of money and left town, Joe, instead of moving back in with mom and dad, decided to make a manly man out of himself and started crewing on a snorkel boat. For the last 7 years, Joe has been braving the harsh conditions of the Florida Keys while educating and sometimes entertaining tourists with stories that are mostly true. In 2016, Joe, along with his partner Anne Walters, started Comedy Key West in Anne's fitness studio. The show was called The Downward Dog Comedy Showcase. The first night was a rousing success and they were promptly told to never try that sort of thing in the venue ever again. With a quick pivot, a week later, they found themselves in the BottleCap Lounge. What started as a five week experiment with thirty seats, has expanded into sold-out stand-up comedy shows nearly four nights a week. Comedy Key West, currently the only comedy club in the Florida Keys, hosts different national headliners every week and serves as a spring board for local comedic talent to express themselves and practice their craft.

Steve Crane

Steven Crane works too much at his family-owned Key West Adventures and therefore will leave his bio space pending until a later date. Side note: he's funny.

Tony Hughes

Born and raised in Iowa, Tony moved to Key West after a few winters snowboarding in the Cascade Mountains in Washington. He somehow manages to make a living sailing boats, surrounded by women in bathing suits. He’s an alcohol enthusiast, a comedy pupil, and would rather be playing video games. He hosts our Drunken Spelling Bee at Mary Ellen's every other Monday.
