According to Punchline Magazine, Greg Warren is a comic who’s been “on the rise for the last decade.” Most recently seen on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” Greg’s humor is largely based on stories and characters from his Midwestern background. Called a “comic’s comic” by Kim Coles and “that white dude” by an anonymous audience member, Greg made several appearances on BET’s “Coming To The Stage,” where he captivated audiences and judges with anecdotes of his crazy Uncle Earl and the conflicts inherent in meshing two high school identities: varsity wrestler and clarinet player (aka band geek).

Greg’s TV credits also include Country Music Television’s “Comedy Stage” and Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” where he was warmly endorsed by Wanda Sykes. A favorite on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom” radio show, Greg entertained in theaters across the country with the “Friends of Bob and Tom Comedy Tour.” His “Flute Man” bit is one of the most requested in the history of the show. In it, he perfectly capsulizes the insecurities of high school and the ongoing quest to be cool. Greg grew up in St. Louis with his dad who was his high school wrestling coach, an experience that served as a wellspring of material, and his mother who made him wear ridiculous clothes and take clarinet lessons, another source of comedic inspiration. He was a West Point cadet for about a year, where he distinguished himself by amassing an impressive tally of demerits and endless hours of pointless marching. At the University of Missouri, he studied journalism and was named an All-American wrestler. While a student at Mizzou, Greg won a comedy contest and was invited to perform at a local club, Déjà Vu. After a stint pitching Pringles and Jif for corporate giant Proctor & Gamble, Greg made the move to full time comedian. From an early invitation to Montreal’s Just For Laughs festival, to his ongoing cross-country club appearances, Greg continues to make people laugh.

    Michael Thorne is an amalgam of culture and white trash raised on a greasy silver spoon in a borough of Minneapolis aptly nicknamed “Nordeast”. He has brought his hilarious observational insights on evolution, (or lack thereof), human relations, marriage & parenthood to backwoods barrooms, colleges, casinos and A-list comedy clubs from coast to coast & border to border. Michael grabbed the attention of LA bigwigs at one point who urged him to leave Minnesota to further his career. “You’re the funniest thing out of the Midwest. Now get out of the Midwest.”

    But Michael favors the Midwestern family life. He will take you on a wild and hysterical tour of the minefield that is his life. Michael has shared the stage with comedy legends Steven Wright, the late Bill Hicks and the late Mitch Hedberg.

    Christine can best be described as one funny mother!   She has a husband, a twenty-something son who lives at home, a divorced daughter and three grand-kids. This gives her a full portfolio of material to draw from.  A lot of people ask Chris why she began a career in comedy so late in life. Well, it’s not a coincidence that she started immediately after her daughter began having babies! Chris does not like to baby-sit! Sure, traveling around the country telling jokes to drunks in smoky nightclubs was not the most practical way to get out of baby-sitting, but she decided it was definitely worth a try. (It was either that, or go to truck-driving school and she hates the way she looks in flannel shirts! ) So far, this desperate attempt to distance herself from family obligations has worked out quite nicely. She’s come a long way from her early years in comedy.

    She currently headlines in some of the top clubs in the country and has become a favorite at “The Comedy Stop” in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. In 2006, she was chosen to compete in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom in America. She appeared in six episodes and made it all the way to the finale where it came down to only 5 finalists. Ok, she didn’t win—-but just ask anyone who has seen her perform and they will tell you that she is definitely one funny mother!
