Greg Warren, most recently seen on “Comedy Central Presents”, “The Late Late Show” and “Last Comic Standing”, has been building a strong fan base around the country with his act inspired by stories from his Midwestern upbringing. Greg attracts a diverse audience spectrum, performing on networks such as BET (as a finalist on “Coming to the Stage”) Country Music Television’s “Comedy Stage” and Greg is also a favorite on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom” radio show, which led him to tour theatres across the country with the “Friends of Bob and Tom Comedy Tour”.
J.R. Brow went to college, became a standup comic, and eventually toured 49 states and 4 continents with his guitar in hand. His original standup comedy instantly won over young and old fans alike. Almost immediately, J.R. marched to the finals of the San Francisco Comedy Competition. He has opened for performers like Dana Carvey, Ray Romano, Bill Hicks, and Steven Wright. He’s recently been featured on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” as well as many other television spots along the way.
Dr. Gonzo’s performances combine stand-up comedy and classic rock parodies. When he wasn’t touring with top music acts, he headlines major comedy clubs across America with Huey Lewis and the News, Starship, Joe Walsh, and Night Ranger.
Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. In his comedy routine he melds observational humor, one liners, family humor, and humorous original songs with guitar accompaniment together, to create his own unique style of comedy. He has been compared to the likes of Adam Sandler and Louie Anderson. Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states including Nevada, California, and New York.
Comedian, actor, and writer Josh Wolf has become one of the most sought after personalities in comedy today. From adding his quick witted commentary on comedy round tables, to becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author, writing on hit television shows, and headlining stand-up comedy tours across the nation, Wolf has proved time and time again he is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted comedians in the entertainment business. Wolf is currently a regular round table guest and writer on the hit E! series “Chelsea Lately,” and recently appeared as a performer on the new E! series “After Lately.”
Call him cocky, call him confident, but never call him dull. The Midnight Swinger erupts onto the stage like the volcano in front of the Mirage Hotel in a fresh and original, over the top event that has been called “sharp-witted,” “clever” and “classy.” Putting the show back in showman, The Midnight Swinger combines the style and cool of a 60′s Las Vegas performer with the flash and excitement of a 21st century Super Bowl halftime extravaganza.
Currently starring in the Disney XD show, LAB RATS, actor/comedian Hal Sparks began his professional career as a teenager in Chicago. As a member of the famed Second City Troupe, his quick wit and affable personality quickly gained him recognition and acclaim and he was named the “Funniest Teenager In Chicago” by the Chicago Sun Times. Sparks went on to host the Emmy Award- winning “Talk Soup” on E! Entertainment Television, winning rave reviews from fans and critics alike. He starred for five seasons on Showtime’s hit series “Queer As Folk” and appeared in the films “Extract,” “Spiderman 2” and “Dude, Where’s My Car?”
