With an inspired blend of lunacy that includes physical humor, impersonations, stylized caricatures of nightclub singers and his signature "man on the street" interviews. Emmy Award winner KEVIN MEANEY has been one of the country's most popular standup comedians for more than 25 years. Tom Shale's of the Washington Post said, "Picture the precocious love child of Jonathan Winters and Ethel Merman and you have some idea of Kevin Meaney's act." 

Making people laugh has always been a top priority for Kevin. From his early years doing standup comedy in San Francisco and Boston he's amassed an impressive list of credits along the way. His first HBO special in 1986 catapulted him to the forefront of the comedy scene. In 1987 Kevin made his debut appearance on, "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson and was invited by Johnny to join the guest panel. Since his first appearance Kevin has returned to the show a dozen times. He was a special guest on Saturday Night Live and has appeared on Letterman, Regis, Oprah and Conan. 

Kevin is also an accomplished actor, having starred in the CBS sitcom, "Uncle Buck" which ran for a full season. In addition, he has done numerous guest appearances on both sitcoms and dramas. He also had a featured role in the movie 'Big". In 2006, Kevin expanded his acting repertoire to appear in the Broadway production of Hairspray as The Male Authority Figure, playing five roles - Mr. Pinky, Harriman F. Spritzer, The Principal, The Cop and the Flasher. Kevin is also a successful writer and producer. He wrote and produced and starred in a one-man autobiographical play titled, Wedding Vows in Vegas which premiered at the prestigious U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado before going on to a successful summer run in Boston at the Hasty Pudding Theatre. Steve Martin called it, "The most innovative, heart-rending and funny show I've seen in a long, long time." 

Known for drawing upon his family relationships for much of his material, Kevin has made such lines as "That's not Right" and "We're Big Pants People" and "We're going to lose the house" (delivered in the tremulous voice of his mother) catch phrases for hilarity. An evening with Kevin is a trip to the funhouse and one laugh escalates into a bigger one and good-hearted humor prevails. So, Big Pants People of the world unite... your leader is here, his name is Kevin Meaney and he's on a mission of mirth. Kevin is currently living in New York with his daughter Kate.

Johnny Rizzo-

Where do you begin the task of trying to describe Johnny Rizzo?  The elastic faces, the flopping limbs, the silly, googly eyes…he’s got you in stitches and he hasn’t even opened his mouth yet!  And once that happens, you’re gone.  At the end of the night, your face hurts – literally – from the constant laughter.  He has earned the nickname, “The Rubber-Faced Comedian.”

Part old school (think Red Skelton, Jerry Lewis, Danny Kaye) intertwined with his own unique observations on everyday life, Johnny Rizzo has been cracking up audiences around the country for over 30 years.  Born in raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Johnny cut his comedy teeth in some of the most hallowed clubs in New York City, including Catch a Rising Star, Caroline’s, Dangerfield’s and The Comic Strip.  Before long, Johnny was opening all over the country for superstars including Jay Leno, Richard Belzer, Dennis Miller, Tommy Chong, Joan Rivers, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Ray Charles, Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Mamas and the Papas, Pat Cooper and Henny Youngman.

Johnny has headlined across the country at The Bitter End in NYC, the Borgota Casino in Atlantic City, the Riviera and Sun Coast casinos in Las Vegas and at all the major comedy clubs, including Madison Square Garden.  He has appeared on numerous television programs including NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Fox’s 30 Seconds to Fame, A & E Comedy on the Road and The Joan Lunden Show. He also received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Achievement – Performance Artist, for the acclaimed CPTV comedy special, Hot Summer Nights.  He also hosted his own public-access talk and variety show, The Johnny Rizzo Show.

Johnny has also toured the country as part of Jim Labriola’s Night of 1000 Guidos comedy revue show.  He continues to perform hundreds of shows per year.  “I’m a road monkey,” says Johnny, “I’m paying off my car with jokes.”

He has appeared in numerous television commercials and also appeared in feature films. Johnny is currently the host of ESOTERICA with Johnny Rizzo, a offbeat radio program now available for free downloads on iTunes.

Kevin Downey Jr

Comedian, columnist Kevin Downey, Jr. has been recently labeled "refreshingly bizarre" by fellow comedian Joe Mulligan.  Kevin headlined small rooms all over the U.S. and enjoyed a cult following, (that means only 28 people dug him), until his frequent and on-going bookings at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, bringing him to a new level of notoriety. Kevin now works "A" clubs everywhere, and to larger and larger audiences.

The Early Years - Whereas most comedians will lie about where they grew up in an effort to gain street cred, comedian, columnist and all around swell guy Kevin Downey Jr. actually did grow up in Detroit MI. He made his TV debut at age 6 on CKLW's "The Bozo Show" where he won a hockey stick, a 12-pack of Orange Crush and some Tootsie Rolls playing, The Bug Game.  Like all kids in Detroit Kevin attempted to play ice hockey, but his first and only season was cut short when the coach realized Kevin was too small to skate while wearing all the gear, thus clearing the way for Wayne Gretzky to top Gordie Howes achievements.

Bright Lights burnin' Gonna set your Soul on Fire - Kevin moved to New York City looking for fame and fortune. He instantly landed a part at Macy's Santaland as an elf (some call it the longest running show on Broadway). Kevin was decimated to learn all elves were fired after the Christmas Eve shift. Shortly thereafter, Kevin went to his first comedy show at New York's "Comic Strip Live" and realized his calling; however,  it would be three years until he had the stones to get on stage himself. 

Money for nothing and your chicks for free - Today Kevin is headlining clubs everywhere in the U.S., and can be heard regularly on "The Bob and Tom Show", as well as, Sirius and XM Satellite radio.  Kevin is also a proud member of Armed Forces Entertainment and he travels the world performing for the troops. Some of the bases he's been to include: Pearl Harbor, Guam, Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, Singapore, Diego Garcia.

He's also appeared on "Comedy Central", "What Not to Wear" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" where he got a much needed haircut. Kevin appears at the Trop's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas at least four times a year. He truly appreciates his ever-growing fan base who come to see him again and again.  Kevin authors a column called, Drinking on $11 a Night, which can be read in "Bachelor Pad Magazine" and "GC" magazine, and online at usedwigs.com.  Kevins song, "Secret Garden of Dirty Little Whores (who think they're better than me)", can be heard on college and traditional radio stations throughout the country.  His nationally-released DVD called, "I'm not Gay, but Don't Stop" can be found on both Amazon.com and Netflix. 

...And no, Kevin is not related to Robert Downey, Jr.

Bio- You may have seen Ian Harvie on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore or may co-starring on the two-time, Golden Globe Award-winning, TV series TRANSPARENT on Amazon.
 
He was known for being Margaret Cho’s opening act for years, turned cross-country headliner and a groundbreaking transgender comedian, unafraid to joke about subjects no other comedian has ever touched.
 
In the spring 2014, Harvie, with the help of friend and Executive Producer Cho, Harvie unveiled his first-ever live standup comedy special, poking fun at topics from top surgery, to his fear of public restrooms, to his active sex life in the feature concery film IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO.
 
Harvie’s unique act queers the traditionally macho, sex-obsessed world of stand up in ways you won’t believe, proving that laughter cuts across all gender identities and ultimately unites us all.
 
Audiences of every possible cross-section of society are quick to relate to – and laugh along with – Ian’s eccentric views on love, families, adolescence, substance abuse, and gender identification, as well as his acute dissection on the circus act that is the stunt double for today’s popular culture.
 
His feature-length concert film IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO has been an official selection of over 25 film festivals world wide, and won 3 awards. It is available for download now.
 
You can now find Harvie co-starring in the role of Dale on the critically acclaimed Jill Soloway TV series TRANSPARENT on Amazon Prime, available now for binge watching.
 
You can find Ian touring his live stand up comedy at clubs and colleges all over the world.

Ray Harrington is an infectiously likable comedian who has performed from L.A. to London, England along with comedy clubs, festivals, and colleges across the country. Harrington has turned his awkward and un-led stumble into manhood into hilariously irreverent material and marvelous improvisational riffing that embraces the uncomfortable and the absurd with a smile. His debut album from Stand Up! Records, The Worst Is Over, was named 'New and Noteworthy' on iTunes and debuted at the top of the comedy charts on Amazon and iTunes. Here are a few things others are saying about Ray:

"A stand out Stand Up Comedian."

- The Boston Globe

"Wickedly funny with a slightly dark sense of humor."

New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-playing “Third Conchord” on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords and Mickey Rourke’s deli boss in 2009 Oscar winner The Wrestler, and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced, measured, and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary. 

Boasting multiple stand-up appearances on The Late Show with David LettermanLate Night with Conan O’BrienJimmy Kimmel Live!, and two Comedy Central Presents specials,  and his latest one hour Comedy Central special Super Crazy. Todd’s resume also includes such hit TV shows as LouieDelocatedBored to DeathTim and EricChappelle’s ShowSex and the City, and even Sesame Street. Among his additional feature-film highlights are Todd Phillips’s Road Trip, Louis CK’s Pootie Tang, and Mitch Hedberg’s Los Enchiladas.  You can see him soon at Sigourney Weaver's right hand man in Amy Heckerling's Vamps, and as Paul Rudd's co-worker in David Wain's Wanderlust. Internationally he has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and Kilkenny, Ireland’s Cat Laughs Festival.  

Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show, and his albums Medium EnergyFalling Off the Bone, and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records, Amazon and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival’s Jury Award, praise from Ricky Gervais as one of the best comedians of 2009, and accolades from The Onion’s A.V. Club, which declared Medium Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade. 

Todd was the subject of a recent New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a “master of standup” and noted “when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.”

In April 2013 the Todd Barry Podcast debuted. It reached #1 on the iT

 “Comedy savants revere this Conan and Letterman veteran’s hushed, singsong sarcasm.” – Entertainment Weekly

“Piercing, blinding, slaying, violating wit.” – NPR

“Infuses his observational comedy with a wonderfully individual disdain.” – The Times of London

“He doesn't suffer fools, and fortunately for his comedy his definition of ‘fool’ doesn't discriminate.” – Pitchfork.com

 “Acerbic wit, deadpan delivery and wickedly smart punchlines.” – Time Out New York

“Barry is so beautifully arid he is positively parched.” – London Evening Standard

 

“The success lies with the delivery, and in his ability to seamlessly merge ad-libbed material with his prepared schtick.” – The Age, Melbourne

In the hard-hitting New York comedy world, D.C. Benny is a heavyweight contender. His unorthodox style of comedic story-telling, seasoned with original characters, has earned him a rabid fan base of all shapes, sizes, shades and ages over the last 26 years.

As an English major at the University of Maryland, he entered a talent show where he got big laughs doing impressions of all of his professors. He soon became a fixture at local comedy clubs in the D.C. area, before moving to Brooklyn NY.

Once in New York, he made a name for himself as a white comic who was happy to work the urban rooms in addition to performing at the mainstream comedy clubs.

Benny killed on his first tv appearance on Showtime At the Apollo and has since performed in all over the U.S. and toured internationally. 

Many of his fans know him from his dramatic film and tv roles. He has been seen on multiple Law and Orders, had a long run on the soap As The World Turns, and has been in many feature films such as Freedomland with Samuel Jackson and John Singleton’s Illegal Tender. 

He has also been in numerous national commercials for Verizon, Dell, Volkswagon, Wendy’s, and was the main character in the Budweiser “How You Doin’?” Superbowl spots.

His Comedy Central half hour is one of the highest rated in the networks history, and he was a top 8 finalist in season 8 of Last Comic Standing.

His weekly comedic story-telling show, Urban Myth, became an underground staple, where performers such as Dave Chapelle, Ben Bailey, Jim Gaffigan, Marc Maron, Jim Norton, and Colin Quinn would drop by and tell their true, funny, stories.

Benny still lives in Brooklyn with his wife and animals, where he works on his writing projects, fiddles around with old Land Rovers, and makes his own sauce.
