The Clark State Performing Arts Center will host a Chalk de Peace comedy show in the Turner Studio Theater at 8 p.m., Saturday, October 9.
Featured comedians include: Marcus Martin, Chris Karwoski, Dionte Allen, and Wyatt Lutz.
Some comedians walk the walk and other comedians talk the talk. Marcus Martin does both, and he does it in style. Marcus Martin is real, raw and an exciting act to watch. Pulling no punches, he captivates the audience with true and uncensored tales of his true-life experiences. He was voted both the Best and Most Exciting Comedian in Ohio and has opened for Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley and Gary Owen.
Chris Karwoski is a comedian from Springfield who’s been performing stand-up comedy for six years. An Army veteran with two deployments and now two boys of his own, Chris has appeared in the Savanannah Comedy Festival and runs an open mic at The Market Bar.
Dionte’ Allen believes in making the most out of what you have. What he enjoys most about comedy is its ability to connect with people and change their mind. He feels most creative when he's writing and performing on stage and finds joy in sharing stories and laughter.
Wyatt Lutz is an up and coming and Dayton-favorite comic entering the comedy scene right now, bursting through with his unique style and curly mullet. Wyatt has worked alongside stars including Dave Chappelle, Donnell Rawlings and Big Jay Oakerson.

Though not a comedian herself, Tisa Braddy, owner and producer of Chalk de Peace, has a love for the craft.
“(I am) a community liaison and motivational speaker dedicated to building community, while being aligned to the mission of those partners and staying committed to ‘making a mark on the world in a peaceful manner,’” said Braddy. “As a result of COVID, (I) noticed the adverse effect of the shutdown and the isolation it caused. This opportunity is Clark State Performing Arts Center’s way of connecting with community through comedy.”
Doors open at 7 p.m. with DJ Chill’s Silent Disco. Tickets for the Chalk de Peace comedy show are $27.05 and can be purchased through ticketmaster.com.
