Ralphie May is one of the most popular comedians in the country. His one-hour special, "Ralphie May: Prime Cut" premiered on Comedy Central in 2007. Filmed in front of a live audience in Knoxville, TN, Ralphie is the first comedian in history to record two specials in one night. "Prime Cut" is the follow-up to "Girth of a Nation" which aired on Comedy Central in 2006. Both were followed by a DVD and CD of the same name, released by Warner Bros. Records.
Known for his hip-hop brand of comedy, Ralphie has his ebonics and quick wit down pat, which has earned him roles in films such as "For Da Love Of Money" and "Gas." He was also the only white comedian to perform on "The Big Black Comedy Show," along with Mo'Nique, RodMan, Sexy Marie and Vince Morris.
Ralphie has a proven track record of selling out multiple shows in 1,500 to 3,000 seat venues. He has a no-nonsense point of view and the ability to connect with a diverse audience by pointing out society's hypocrisies. He doesn't shy away from touchy topics or ethnic jokes, nor does he bite his tongue. Ralphie sincerely believes that as long as what he's saying is true, people need to hear it. No topic is off limits, whether it be the 2004 tsunami, the death of Pope John Paul II or midgets.
On the small screen, Ralphie has worked as a writer and producer on ESPN's "Mohr Sports" starring Jay Mohr. He has performed stand-up on numerous late-night talk shows including multiple appearances on "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live." He has appeared on "The Man Show" and MTV's "Bash" as well as guest-starred on NBC's "Whoopie." As if that's not enough, on one of his recent appearances on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" he received a standing ovation, making him the first comedian in ten years to attain this honor. Ralphie hosted Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" in 2008 and his hour-long stand-up special, "Austin-Tacious," aired on the channel that same year.

  • 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'.
