Two comedy heavy hitters are taking the Spokane Comedy Club stage this week.

First up is comedian/actor Jay Mohr on Sunday.

Over the course of his nearly 30-year career, Mohr has dipped his toes in just about every facet of the entertainment industry.

He became a household name in the early ‘90s thanks to his time on “Saturday Night Live” before appearing on shows like “The Jeff Foxworthy Show,” “Action,” “Ghost Whisperer” and “Gary Unmarried.” He also created, hosted and executive produced “Last Comic Standing” for three seasons.

On the big screen, Mohr has had featured roles in “Jerry Maguire,” “Picture Perfect” and “The Groomsmen.”

He’s no stranger to sports radio, hosts his own podcast called “Mohr Stories,” has released two books and has lent his voice to several video games.

Comedian/actor Sarah Colonna too has quite a varied résumé.

She has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” “Chelsea Lately” as a roundtable guest and writer, “Scare Tactics,” “The United States of Tara” and “Days of Our Lives.”

She has released two books, “Life As I Blow It” and “Has Anyone Seen My Pants?,” and she stars in the upcoming Netflix series “Insatiable.”

Colonna has also launched Clutch Women, a line of clutches that meet NFL stadium regulation sizes (She’s married to Seahawks punter Jon Ryan.).

Colonna was the first comedian to perform at the Spokane Comedy Club when it opened in 2016, and her performances Thursday through July 21 mark her long-awaited return.
