Uncle's Brother Feat. Tim Meadows


Uncle's Brother is comprised of 'Saturday Night Live' veteran Tim Meadows along with Second City/iO/Annoyance alums Joe Canale and Brad Morris. This killer trio has been entertaining college and club audiences all over the United States and abroad with their unique blend of stand-up and improv.

Uncle's Brother will be doing the Sunday Headliner's Show and closing out the festival Monday night with a Lottery show. That means that any performer will have the chance to do a set with these legends after merely having their name drawn from a hat.

Tim Meadows first rose to prominence with his 9-year stint as a cast member of 'Saturday Night Live,' during which time he developed one of the shows most beloved characters, Leon Phelps, The Ladies Man, later reprising the role in a Paramount feature film of the same name. He also became known for his deadpan impressions of celebrities like O.J. Simpson, Michael Jackson, and Tiger Woods. Other notable film roles include Principal Duvall in 'Mean Girls,' and Sam in 'Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story.' He performs regularly at iO in Chicago with Joe and Brad in Uncle's Brother as well as with Miles Stroth and Heather Campbell in Heather, Miles, and Tim.

Brad is one third of Uncle's Brother along with Joe Canale and Tim Meadows.  He has been improvising, and writing and performing sketch comedy for a long time.  He was a member of The Second City Mainstage in Chicago for four revues and is an original member of iO's, The Reckoning, Stubs, and Armando.  He now lives in LA and appears in tiny roles in TV and FILM.

Joe Canale has worked at too many theaters to list. Here is the list: Boom Chicago, The Second City Mainstage (Chicago), iO, iO west, Annoyance Theatre, Second City LA. Clearly he was lying in his first sentence as there is room for at least 3 more theaters.
