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???

  • Tim Sullivan
    November 24, 2018 at 8:00 PM Tim Sullivan
    Tim Sullivan is one of the country’s best comedians you have never heard of. He got his start in comedy at the age of 18 combining hyper attention deficit disorder with an amusingly acute take on life for one of the highest intensity shows in stand-up, making him an audience favorite.
     
    Tim has traveled the country from coast to coast for twenty years and while he has yet to receive his big break he has appeared on H.B.O and is heard regularly on Sirius/XM-Raw Dog and Laugh U.S.A.
     
    Tim’s show is versatile enough to allow him to open for many notable acts over this past year including: Dave Chappelle, Bob Saget, Jim Bruer, Joe Torrey, Kris Kattan, Kevin Pollack, Louie Anderson, BobCat Goldthwait, Tom Arnold, Jon Lovitz, Tru TV’s The Impractical Jokers and WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley.
     
    Tim also performs many corporate shows and company holiday parties throughout the year. If you get the chance to see or book him for a show you won’t be disappointed. Below is a letter from a recent conference Tim has performed for.

    The Detroit Free press selected him as the “Best up and Coming Comedian,” and he earned the title of “finalist” in both the Seattle and San Francisco International Comedy Competitions.  Rob was also selected as a feature performer at the Chicago Comedy Festival along with the Boston Comedy and Movie Festival.  Recently Rob was named Maxim Magazine’s “Real Man of Comedy”.  Last Comic Standing on NBC named him, “The Happiest Comic in America”.  Campus Activities Magazine named him “College Comic of the Year” and you have also seen him on the Comedy Central sketch comedy show “Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time”.
