Bio....
 
      Judy Tenuta is the most famous person who has ever lived...and if you don't believe it, just ask her. Judy is a triple threat in the sense that she has strong stage, television, comedy and film credits with a large fan base.  She has appeared in" The Vagina Monologues",  "Menopause the Musical" both in LA and Chicago, and she's had her own stand-up specials on Showtime, HBO and Lifetime.  Judy was the first female stand-up comic to win "Best Female Comedian" at the American Comedy Awards and is a two-time Grammy nominee for her comedy CD’S,  "Attention Butt-Pirates” and “Lesbetarians!" and "In Goddess We Trust".  That same year, she became the national spokesperson for a series of Diet Dr. Pepper commercials. The self-described "Love Goddess" and "Aphrodite of the Accordion" has made hundreds of guest and co-hosting appearances on such popular TV shows as "The View",  "Late Night with David Letterman", "Larry King Live", "Entertainment Tonight", and "Comics Unleashed".
      Judy's stand-up routine is appropriately described as outrageous, mind-blowing comedy. She recently became an ordained minister, and converts her audiences to her signature religion, "Judyism".  A strong advocate for gays, children and women's issues, the fun-loving feminist preaches that all women should be worshipped as "Love Goddesses!"
      Some of Judy's roles include:  an ex-show girl turned wedding chaplain on General Hospital, a snobby judge on "Corey in the House" and a featured role in the teen comedy hit, "Material Girls", starring Hillary and Haley Duff and directed by Martha Coolidge.  Judy also produced and starred in her own film, "Desperation Boulevard" about a former child star who stops at nothing to make a comeback. Judy costars with Bruce Villanch in the Indie film, "Sister Mary".... so watch out, Meryl Streep!
Some of her recent roles include...
An ex-show girl turned wedding chaplain on "General Hospital"
A self-absorbed group therapist in the indy film "10 Attitudes and a Date"
A small but pivotal role as the genteel trailer trash cat lady in the Hilary Duff film "Material Girls"
 
Judy just completed 2 Independent films:
Judy plays Zania, a menacing, aging actress in the recently screened independent film, "Going Down in LALA Land". Judy just completed the role of an overly zealous, in your face Mother of the star high school pitcher, in the soon to be released, independent film "Gibsonberg", based on a true story.

  • Charlie Weiner
    July 21, 2018 at 8:00 PM Charlie Weiner
    Charlie Wiener has headlined comedy clubs across the United States and Canada for more than 30 years. He has been called ‘Too weird for New York’, manager of the Lone Star Café and ‘Too Midwestern’, both in L.A. and Dallas, we feel he is somewhere in between.  Maybe too weird to be Midwestern or too funny to be categorized, we are not much on labels. 
     
     In that time people who have found him not too weird to work their rooms are  Zanie’s in Chicago, Nashville, Mount Vernon and St. Charles, The Loony Bin in Wichita, Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Little Rock, Goodnight’s in Raleigh, The Admiral Theater, Bremerton, WA, The Improv, Catch a Rising Star in Reno, Providence, Princeton and  Atlantic City, The Riviera and The Plaza in Las Vegas, Loonee’s in Colorado Springs, Cozzy’s in Newport News and Laff’s in Albuquerque and Tucson.
     
    He has shared the stage with Ellen Degeneres, Bobcat Goldthwait, George Lopez, Gordon Lightfoot, Randy Newman, Meatloaf, Todd Rundgren, America, (the band not the whole country, tho’ close), Jefferson Starship and many, many others.  He has performed in 49 states and several provinces of Canada as well as Dublin, Ireland, driving more than two and a half million miles and aging himself by a multiple of six. He is old, broke down and in pain which he bitches about almost constantly but that is what old people do best.
     
    The father of two adult daughters and three very odd dogs, he has lived a full life but isn't ready to cash in his chips just yet. His greatest joy is taking the stage and promoting the concept of old people becoming a drag on the younger generation. Power to the old people!, is his battle cry and the audience follows. Well, they're in wheel chairs, walkers and leaning on canes, don't move very fast and need to stop to pee every few miles... but they follow. And the young see him as hope for their future. That maybe someday if they waste their lives they, too, will get to be bitter old people as well. And that life doesn't necessarily end at 25. 
     
    With appearances on A&E, Comedy Central, his own cable shows 'Off The Wall' and 'Wienervision', CBC, NBC, ABC and CBS as well as being heard regularly on XM radio he has brought the concept of having fun while piling on the years to an art form.
     
    Charlie finds there is nothing funnier than everyday life - especially his. His subject matter ranges from travel to politics, road rage to stupid people, fatherhood to marriage, marriage to marriage to relationships back to marriage around the corner to sex (and lack thereof), Yes, it's high energy, fast paced and extremely hilarious.
     

    For more than forty years in music and comedy, Charlie has proven himself to be the consummate entertainer and one of the most requested stand-up comedians working the road.  Charlie Wiener, comedy with that old, old world edge.  If wisdom comes with age does it not seem logical that cranky is right on its heel???Then he drops his foot on the accelerator. And things start to get wild. You see, Dave Landau might appear to be just like you, but he’s not really. His mind goes to places that angels would fear to tread, and he has no problem telling you about it. The mark of a great comedian, it is said, is the ability to find jokes where others would find tears. Dave find jokes everywhere; with his own foibles and faults, to his family, to pop culture and the state of the world today.

    Cutting his comedic teeth as a teenager in Detroit in the Second City’s Conservatory, Dave Landau has risen to become one of the most in-demand headliners working today. He’s appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” and was a finalist on season 8 of “Last Comic Standing.” He’s become a regular on the nationally-syndicated “Bob & Tom” radio show, and was honored as one of the top 21 club comics of today at HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

  • Claude Stuart
    August 11, 2018 at 8:00 PM Claude Stuart
    Claude Stuart is a comedian, actor, writer and producer. From packing comedy venues across the globe to regular television appearances on shows like "The Tonight Show", and "Last Comic Standing," Claude Stuart has come a long way from his down home southern roots. By his own admission, he was "paddled on more than one occasion for being the class clown." Claude's explosive, in-your-face, rapid-fire, madman stage style is truly an exhilarating assault on the senses and has evoked comparisons to golden era physical comedians such as Steve Martin, Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. Claude's unique brand of Don Rickles-esque crowd interaction, coupled with clever well-written jokes makes him not only the world's first physical insult comedian but a "comedy triple threat!"

  • Frank Caliendo
    August 16, 2018 at 7:00 PM Frank Caliendo
    7PM SHOW SOLD OUT!  Tickets still available for 9PM

    Hey Everyone,
     
    This spring and summer, I'm going to be doing a bunch of ONE NIGHT ONLY SHOWS (with a couple exceptions) in smaller venues. The idea behind these shows will be different than what I've been doing in theaters around the country for the past few years.
     
    Before you ask..... YES, of course I'll be doing a bunch of impressions, but I'm going to also work on being "me" a lot more around them.
     
    Some of you are probably thinking, "Oh No! Frank's having a midlife crisis!" No, I think a midlife crisis is more about being unsure of yourself. This is not the issue. This is about getting outside of the box I've built around myself on stage and letting my fans get to know the real me.
     
    My plan is for these shows to be the most fun I've ever had on stage and I know we will all end up having a blast.
     
    So, see you out there! Let's make some magic.
     
    -Frank
     
    PS. I won't actually be doing any magic tricks with the audience.
     
    PPS. If I do start doing magic, then you can easily say, "Oh he's DEFINITELY having a midlife crisis."

    Comedian, actor, and impressionist Frank Caliendo has been making people laugh his
    entire life. He is well known for his impressions of famous actors Morgan Freeman, Al
    Pacino, Robin Williams and Robert DeNiro; politicians George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and
    Barack Obama; broadcasters John Madden, Charles Barkley and Jon Gruden; and talk
    show hosts Dr. Phil, Jay Leno, and David Letterman.
    On stage, Caliendo’s high energy act is a blend of observations, impressions,
    characters and anecdotal stories that start at a frenetic pace and never let
    up. Appropriately described by the Hollywood Reporter as "a combination of Robin
    Williams and Jim Carrey," Caliendo is one comedian that should not be missed.
    After completing an impressive 10-year run on the “FOX NFL Sunday Pregame” show,
    Frank recently found a new home over at ESPN, where he joined the cast of the
    “Sunday NFL Countdown”. Realizing that ESPN has a plethora of strong personalities,
    Frank has added to his already vast arsenal of impressions, a new set of highly
    entertaining sports persona, including analysts like Jon Gruden, Mel Kiper, Jr., Ron
    “Jaws” Jaworski, Coach Mike Ditka, Adam Schefter, and Chris “Boomer” Berman.
    Beyond ESPN’s NFL show, Frank’s segments have appeared on “Sports Center” and
    his “Gruden QB Camp” segments and Super Bowl “Richard Sherman 30 for 30”
    mocumentary have gone viral across the web.
    An eleven year veteran of television sketch comedy as a cast member on Madtv and
    starring in his own series Frank TV, Caliendo has been a fixture on television for the last
    decade. He has comedy specials that run regularly on TBS and Comedy Central and
    he is a regular on the talk show circuit performing on such shows as The View, The Late
    Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Tonight Show, and Late Show with David
    Letterman.
    Though Frank can be highly known for his variety of sports-related impressions, he
    makes his live shows appealing for everyone in the audience by continually including a
    little bit of every major genre - sports, political figures, and celebrities.

  • Cindy Kaza - Medium
    August 19, 2018 at 7:30 PM Cindy Kaza - Medium
    Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium.  Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter. This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit.
     
    Cindy has been extremely intuitive since very early childhood.  At the age of 10 she had her first memorable experience with a spirit. Days after losing a childhood friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience and convinced herself it was just a dream.  It wasn’t until her early 20’s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multi-faceted abilities as a psychic medium.  She began training not only in the United States but also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. She believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess and that everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!
