The Cheep Show is a two-man show with stand up, improv and banjo. Levi Penley and Robert Price present some good old-fashioned fun and freestyle rap.

Levi and Robert live together, laugh together and love other people. Levi has been lauded for his work on stage in musicals and dramas. Robert has written plays that are confusing to his mother. Levi hails from Social Circle, Georgia, and Robert from Houston, Texas. When they aren't writing or watching comedy, Robert and Levi enjoy earning enough money to eat.

See a show a little like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? but different enough contestants will not know what to expect. This show is sponsored by Bud Light, so contestants will receive a free drink, and the winner will receive a bar tab prize. There will also be stand-up performances by Farah Brook (New York Times) and Ben Kronberg (Comedy Central Presents).
