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.

OTHER GREAT SHOWS!

  • Dwight York
    August 19, 2016 at 8:00 PM Dwight York

    “I hope you like jokes” may seem an absurd way for a comedian to begin a show but those are the words that comedian Dwight York uses to introduce himself to his audience each night. Then the joke-slinging begins and never ends until York says “goodnight” a couple hundred perfect one-liners later.

    Dwight York performs at many of the nation’s top comedy clubs and every summer headlines the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club at the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. He has appeared at the Great American Comedy Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was a two-time finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Contest. In October of 2014, he placed 2nd at the Laughlin Laugh Fest.

    York has also been a favorite guest on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and was featured on their CD, You Guys Rock. York’s CD Quickies (Stand Up! Records) can be heard on Sirius XM Satellite Radio’s Raw Dog Comedy Channel and was rated a “top ten comedy release of the year” by The Serious Comedy Site. Laffspin Magazine says that Dwight York, as inventive as he is suggestive, is what Steven Wright would be if Wright had Robert Schimmel’s blue streak, and that’s a  compliment to all three master comics.
