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.

  • Dave Landau
    July 21, 2017 at 8:00 PM Dave Landau

    Working the road nonstop since his 21st birthday, Dave Landau has grown into a true comedic juggernaut. Finding himself much in-demand among audiences and club owners due to his deadpan demeanor and those jokes — my God, those jokes — that fluidly fly forth with breakneck pacing and perfect timing. Dave, it can be said with all due respect, is a throwback to another era of comedy. The entertaining everyman. Innocent enough at first blush; as he states his case, you begin to see where you and he have quite a bit in common. A wife, a house. An odd sense of calm in an increasingly crazy world. You’re on a tour of the familiar and prosaic, with Dave Landau as the bus driver.

    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.

  • Christine Stedman
    July 28, 2017 at 8:00 PM Christine Stedman
    Christine can best be described as one funny mother!   She has a husband, a twenty-something son who lives athome, 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 incomedy 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 practicalway 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 Vegasand Atlantic City. In 2006, she was chosen to compete in Nick at Nite’s Search for the Funniest Mom inAmerica.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!
