"AJ Finney took the stage first, braving the hoard of cynical
mongrels alone. Rather than baring his sword, he harnessed their
attention with his words. The fearful among us were put at ease as AJ
proved what we thought to be impossible--a room full of midnight-drunk
hipsters ready to scowl laughed instead. For that he will forever be a
fearless gentleman in my eyes. Then I got on stage, drank beer, and
made fart noises."
Kyle Kinane Comedian
"Aj is a pro. A true comic. Challenging funny material and he knows
how to command the stage. Bravo."
Nick Griffin Comedian
"AJ has been a great asset to the Funny Business roster. His
unique delivery and material, backed by strong writing and stage
presence, bring a fresh energy to our stages. AJ has performed in many
diverse markets and for very different demographics at our clubs, with
consistently positive feedback. You can trust he will deliver, no
matter where he goes, and that makes him a very easy choice to be
someone you want to work with."
Eric Yoder Funny Business Agency
"A.J. Finney and I share many things; timing, strong stage
presence, and a middle initial. It is the last of these things that
make him ONE OF MY FAVORITE WORKING COMICS TODAY (or any day
TJ Miller Comedian
"AJ Finney is Funny, Likable, and a perfect act for my college
Matt Istwan - Deja Vu Comedy Club
"I first worked with AJ over 5 years ago. I thought he was pretty funny. The crowd didn't. Now, we both agree he's hilarious! I don't want to follow him anymore. He's too funny!"
Dan Cummins Comedian
"One Funny Guy!"
Dov Davidoff Comedian
"Not everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy AJ as I have, as a
wide eyed dreamer that slept on my couch for 3 weeks and compulsively
did my dishes, but I recommend letting him into your heart if not your
home. The man's love of and dedication to all things comedy truly
shows in his actions on and off the stage."
Emmett Montgomery Comedian
"It's obvious that you get laughs, nobody's going to argue that."
Greg Giraldo - Comedian Last Comic Standing Season 7
"AJ is one of Kansas City's fastest rising young comedians!"
Craig Glazer - Standford's Comedy Club
"To define a man by the time old tradition of conflating an
applicable dichotomy of adjectives and presenting it in sentence form
in an effort to convey selective objective opinion as absolute fact is
a daunting if not impossible task. But I'll try:
AJ Finney is hilarious, mutton chopped, and shorter than me.
Wow. Easier than I thought."
Matt Davis Comedian
"this site is an embarrassment to me and comedy in general"
Iliza Shlesinger Comedian
"AJ Finney was a blast to work with, hilarious stories, he should
change his name to "Killing It On Stage!!!" if there were'nt so much
paper work involved in doing so."
Nick Vatterott Comedian
"He's likable, funny even between jokes, and he lets each bit
build until it explodes."
Alan Scherstuhl - The Pitch
"AJ Finney stands on a stage and tells us how completely
ignorant, deranged and infantile we are as a society and individuals
and we howl with laughter and applaud! Sadly, most of us amble away,
unchamged and continue to be fodder for his razor sharp vitriol but I
like to hope that a few actually learn and evolve."
Emery Emery Comedian/Producer
"AJ Finney is hilarious!!! He's very likable even while being
abrasive or riding the line... Just a good guy all around."
Rob Little Comedian
"His act is innovative & fresh."
Susanna Lee - Kansas City Society Of Burlesque
"You have never seen a comic quite like AJ Finney! Not content to
be like every other comic on the block, AJ is smart, personal, out of
control. If you want to see a show that actually pushes the boundaries of funny, then
you want to see AJ. He is not safe, he doesn't compromise, but he is
well worth the price of admission."
"AJ Finney? Best Mutton Chops in the BIZ!"
John Wessling Comedian
"I loved it. It was much better than Cats... I am going to see it
again and again."
The Jenna at Black Sky Radio
"I think of AJ's comedy as a delicious meal of laughs. Jokes you
can really sink your teeth into."
Kira Soltanovich Comedian
"AJ is one of the funniest and entertaining comics I have ever had
a chance to work with. His comedy style is that of a combination of
Bobcat and Robin Williams but with his oqn originality. He is
extreemly likable and a damn good writer! i am proud to say i know
him, i work with him, and that he writes for my show!"
Rocky Whatule Comedian
Tanna Guthrie - Radio Personalty
"A uniquely hilarious comedic voice"
Dave Nelson - Comedy A-Go-Go
"AJ Finney is not an acquired taste. Everyone likes him. He's like
a big juicy steak. And fuck vegetarians"
James Inman Comedian
" A Killer Show!"
Pablo Francisco Comedian
