Kevin Farley has truly established himself as a comedic presence both on the big screen and television.

Farley grew up in Madison, WI, as the fourth child of five children and he attended Marquette University where he earned a business degree. Farley then went to work for his father’s business, but eventually moved to Chicago and studied at the famed Second City and continues to be active as a key alumnus. Then it didn’t take long for him to establish himself as a comedic presence both on the big screen and television in Los Angeles.
 

He immediately began working with Adam Sandler in The Waterboy and also starred in the comedic films Black Sheep and Beverly Hills Ninja. Then Farley landed a starring role as “Doug Linus” on MTV’s sitcom 2gether where he was met with rave reviews. Farley has also been seen in numerous hit TV series such as That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Joey, Just Shoot Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm, United States of Tara, True Jackson, VP and many more.

In the feature film An American Carol (Directed by David Zucker) Farley’s lead character is a spoof on director Michael Moore as the storyline moves into a satirical look at Hollywood and America’s politically correct culture. He is visited by three spirits who take him on a hilarious journey in an attempt to show him the true meaning of America. The supporting cast included Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Leslie Nielsen and the late Dennis Hopper.

Farley moved behind the camera as co-writer and co-director of Hollywood & Wine, which takes an irreverent look at an actress struggling because she’s a dead ringer for a tabloid train wreck-type actress. Alongside Kevin Farley and co-writer John Farley this hilarious film stars a unique cast of comedians, (SNL alum) Chris Kattan, David Spade, Norm MacDonald, Horatio Sanz, Chris Parnell as well as Nicky Whelan, Chazz Palminteri, and Vivica Fox.

Next up for Farley is the feature film White Knight (released January 2011). Farley stars alongside Tom Sizemore and Stacy Keach. It’s about a Texas Ku Klux Klan member confronts everything he's been taught to hate when he's sentenced to three years of hard labor on a prison work farm. An unconventional love story develops that opens their eyes to the possibility of a different life. And a man who was a born and bred racist finds himself heading down a completely different path to salvation.

Listen in on iTunes Radio to the Farley Bros Radio show as Kevin and John (along with traffic cop comedienne Carissa Kosta) spin hilarious takes on life, love, family and more. Drawing on their long history in Improv comedy, the gang riffs on news-of-the-weird stories from all corners of the planet and their very own wild experiences in and out of the entertainment galaxy. From Madison to Hollywood and all points in between, it's a free-flowing conversation undeniably
“Farley” style.

  • Mark Poolos
    December 31, 2014 at 7:30 PM Mark Poolos
    Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career he co-starred in two independent films "Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies" and "Joanie Loves Furbies". After his performances in those two films there wasn't a person who didn't know his name. He did more films, some commercials and some theater but it wasn't enough. Mark needed that instant connection. So he began his stand-up comedy career. In Marks 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. Mark hopes to do a film in the future people have actually seen.

  • Steve Kramer
    January 09, 2015 at 7:30 PM Steve Kramer
    You might recognize his “Stanford’s” song, which is played every week on the #1 radio show in the Midwest, The Johnny Dare Morning Show, but Steve Kramer started off by doing voice impersonations as a child. He got kicked off the school bus for impersonating both of his bus drivers and kicked out of several classes for impersonating his school teachers. Eventually, he moved on to impersonating celebrities such as Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, John Travolta, Gilbert Gottfried, and Sean Connery, just to name a few. Steve wanted to take advantage of his ability to impersonate others, so he started doing stand-up comedy in 1998. He taught himself how to play the guitar so he could add musical elements to his show as well, and in 1999, he mailed an audition tape from his home town of Kansas City to Warner Brothers Studios in Los Angeles for a sketch comedy show to be aired on national television that they were creating and casting for called “Hype”. A few days later, Warner Brothers flew him out to Los Angeles to try out in person. More than 3,000 people auditioned for the show, so the competition was incredible. With only one spot left on the cast to fill, Steve had to audition right after Dane Cook. Talk about pressure! Steve landed the roll and co-starred with nine other extremely talented individuals including Frank Caliendo and “Chicken”. He played President Bush, Keannu Reeves, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Justin Timberlake, Carson Daly, David Blane, Regis Philbin, and many others on national television. His headlining show is like something out of Vegas, filled with music, improv, and audience participation. Steve’s second love is music. He is a one-man-band, so sometimes he argues and sleeps with himself.

  • Tom Green
    January 15, 2015 at 7:30 PM Tom Green

    Tom Green sparked a TV revolution with his hit MTV comedy series "The Tom Green Show." One of MTV’s top-rated programs, "The Tom Green Show" paved the way for shows like "Jackass," "Punk’d" and "Fear Factor. With its guerrilla video tactics and outrageous stunts, it was unlike anything that had been seen before.

    "The Tom Green Show" began on public access TV and was picked up by MTV. In a sense, it was the original independent, viral-video hit, years before YouTube even existed. The raw home-video look was what made the show relatable to young audiences across the globe, and its hilarious clips are still hugely popular online.

    After his show was acquired and broadcast by MTV, Tom went on to produce, direct and star in several films. He appeared in such blockbusters as "Road Trip" and "Charlie’s
    Angels," as well as the cult classics "Freddy Got Fingered," "Stealing Harvard," and "Bob the Butler."

    He has appeared multiple times on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show," "Oprah," "The Jimmy Kimmel Show," "The View," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "Live with Regis & Kelly," and "The Wendy Williams Show." In fact, he is one of the few comedians in history given the chance to guest-host David Letterman’s program. He has also hosted 'Saturday Night Live," and has appeared on numerous magazine covers including the coveted cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

    His autobiography "Hollywood Causes Cancer" is a critically-acclaimed book detailing his battle with Testicular Cancer which he beat successfully at the peak of his MTV show's meteoric rise. "The Cancer Special," a full-length television special for MTV, documented Tom's multiple surgeries and was called one of the Top Ten TV shows of the year by Time magazine.

    Tom’s independent online talk show "Tom Green’s House Tonight" was the first LIVE streaming talk show to become a massive success on the Internet. Audiences worldwide have enjoyed this ground-breaking series broadcast in real time from Tom's home-made living-room studio living room. It is the highest-rated online talk show in history and has attracted A-list celebrities and comedians to appear as Tom's guests.

    Tom is currently traveling the world on a sold-out stand-up comedy tour, and has just completed his first 90-minute stand-up comedy special for Showtime to be broadcast and released on video this year. He is also planning to launch a 24-hour live Internet comedy channel which will be the first of its kind. Given Tom Green’s background of making independent TV accessible to large mainstream audiences, it is sure to be a massive success. Stay tuned.

  • Mark Sweeney
    January 16, 2015 at 7:30 PM Mark Sweeney
    This Comedy Central veteran turns topics as intergender relationships and golf inside out with his sarcastic and witty brand of hilarity. A native of St. Louis, Mark mixes Midwest convictions with wise-guy attitude. Always a tad irreverent, Mark Sweeney has a way of making even the victims of notorious attention laugh about their shortcomings. The four years he spent in the U.S. Marines were forgettable, either that or he just can't remember them. Though his military history is a bit fuzzy, he's constantly being reminded that at some point he attended college, which is why he's still on the run from the student loan collectors. Mark's credits also include acting roles in Boston Public, The Visitor, and Days of Our Lives. Mark is a long-time Funny Bone favorite and an acknowledged attraction at corporate events

    Show Followed by Dueling Pianos with Katy Marguardt & Becca D
