About Kevin:
 
Comedian, columnist Kevin Downey, Jr. has been recently labeled "refreshingly bizarre" by fellow comedian Joe Mulligan.  Kevin headlined small rooms all over the U.S. and enjoyed a cult following, (that means only 28 people dug him), until his frequent and on-going bookings at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, bringing him to a new level of notoriety. Kevin now works "A" clubs everywhere, and to larger and larger audiences.
 
The Early Years - Whereas most comedians will lie about where they grew up in an effort to gain street cred, comedian, columnist and all around swell guy Kevin Downey Jr. actually did grow up in Detroit MI. He made his TV debut at age 6 on CKLW's "The Bozo Show" where he won a hockey stick, a 12-pack of Orange Crush and some Tootsie Rolls playing, The Bug Game.  Like all kids in Detroit Kevin attempted to play ice hockey, but his first and only season was cut short when the coach realized Kevin was too small to skate while wearing all the gear, thus clearing the way for Wayne Gretzky to top Gordie Howes achievements.
 
Bright Lights burnin' Gonna set your Soul on Fire - Kevin moved to New York City looking for fame and fortune. He instantly landed a part at Macy's Santaland as an elf (some call it the longest running show on Broadway). Kevin was decimated to learn all elves were fired after the Christmas Eve shift. Shortly thereafter, Kevin went to his first comedy show at New York's "Comic Strip Live" and realized his calling; however,  it would be three years until he had the stones to get on stage himself.
 
Money for nothing and your chicks for free - Today Kevin is headlining clubs everywhere in the U.S., and can be heard regularly on "The Bob and Tom Show", as well as, Sirius and XM Satellite radio.  Kevin is also a proud member of Armed Forces Entertainment and he travels the world performing for the troops. Some of the bases he's been to include: Pearl Harbor, Guam, Roi-Namur, Kwajalein Atoll, Singapore, Diego Garcia.
 
He's also appeared on "Comedy Central", "What Not to Wear" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" where he got a much needed haircut. Kevin appears at the Trop's "Comedy Stop" in Las Vegas at least four times a year. He truly appreciates his ever-growing fan base who come to see him again and again.  Kevin authors a column called, Drinking on $11 a Night, which can be read in "Bachelor Pad Magazine" and "GC" magazine, and online at usedwigs.com.  Kevins song, "Secret Garden of Dirty Little Whores (who think they're better than me)", can be heard on college and traditional radio stations throughout the country.  His nationally-released DVD called, "I'm not Gay, but Don't Stop" can be found on both Amazon.com and Netflix.
 
...And no, Kevin is not related to Robert Downey, Jr.

  • Grant Lyon
    May 12, 2018 at 8:00 PM Grant Lyon
    Starting his career in the vibrant San Francisco comedy scene, San Francisco Weekly described Grant as “a hilariously sharp observer, not one of those tired white-guy bellyachers.” A former collegiate soccer player, Grant decided to pursue a career on stage instead of on the field. In 2014, he won the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival beating out comedians from all over the country, and was chosen as a New Face in comedy at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. As well as performing in a number of other prestigious comedy festivals including The Great American Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Grant performed on the TV show Comics Unleashed. He has appeared on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show and is heard regularly on Sirius/XM satellite radio. As well as being a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, the short film he wrote and starred in, Interview Date, was eligible for a short film Academy Award in 2013. Funny or Die, MSN, Huffington Post, and others are among the sites that have featured Grant’s sketch videos on their home pages. You might also recognize Grant from a number of national commercials including AT&T, Johnsonville Sausage, CiCi’s Pizza, and more.

  • Dustin Diamond - Screech from Saved by the Bell
    ONE NIGHT ONLY!

    He played the bad guy on Celebrity Fit Club and has been hailed as the “Dark Prince of Comedy”.  Dustin Diamond is a pop culture icon, and is best known for his role as Screech on Saved by the Bell.  Dustin played Screech through all 10 seasons of the show, and to this day, Saved by the Bell is still seen in syndication 16 times per week in 105 countries.  
    For the past 17 years, Dustin has toured the world as a stand-up comedian.  His act is suitable for the now grown-up fans of Saved by the Bell.  It is adult-oriented, hilarious, and definitely not the same squeaky-clean, Saturday morning comedy that he spent 10 years doing as Screech.  In his act, Dustin touches on life’s most important topics – grandma porn, farts, and the secrets of the female sex.    
    In addition to stand-up comedy, Dustin has been involved in reality television, indie movies, and numerous other projects.  Most recently, he played himself in Better Reach Screech, The Nerdist’s parody of Breaking Bad.  He appeared on the British reality series Big Brother, and was also seen on Oprah’s Where Are They Now?, in which he touched upon topics such as his tell-all book Behind the Bell, and other previous media stunts.  
    Dustin’s other interests include playing video games, following all things “nerdy,” and playing the bass guitar. For more on Dustin and to hear what he has to say, you can follow him on Twitter, @dustindiamond.

  • Uncle Lar'
    May 19, 2018 at 8:00 PM Uncle Lar'
    Known as Uncle Lar', Larry Reeb is the wise-cracking black sheep, politically incorrect relative everyone knows. Like any concerned relative Uncle Lar' wants to help. So in his own twisted way he does. He gives you "tips". Uncle Lar' offers tips on everything from marriage to lotteries to children. Always topping them off with, "That's a tip from your Uncle Lar'."

    Uncle Lar' is a regular on "The Bob & Tom Show", syndicated in over 100 markets. Larry has been voted Chicago Comedian of the Year, and has made numerous television and radio appearances.

    His tips are tops. His inflections infectious. And the fans are fanatics. Reeb's cult-like clan can't get enough. Whether he's headlining comedy clubs, colleges or conventions, his wit is universally appealing. Relatively speaking, everyone travels from everywhere to see their Uncle Lar'.
