    Special Event
Do you remember the girl in your high school who had a horrible rumor spread about her? It might have involved a football team, or a dog and some peanut butter or maybe processed meat. Well, that girl in Easton, Pennsylvania was April Macie. So, where did she turn for comfort? While some might turn to the Lord, April turned to promiscuity. Promiscuity and then comedy. With her irreverent brand of overtly sexual humor she attempts to break down troubling double-standards and lend her voice to women everywhere. April would like to add that she doesn't really know what irreverent means, but she's heard a lot of other comics use it and thought it sounded kinda' cool.
 
April Macie travels the world collecting stories and experiences, which she then translates into humorous, relatable tales in front of audiences worldwide. April has been to over 23 countries, 12 of those performing stand-up comedy (not fellatio) for the troops, was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2006, has appeared on E! Entertainment, Fuel TV, HSN, Sirius and XM Radio, Bob & Tom, Access Hollywood, and was labeled an "emerging talent to watch" by the Hollywood Reporter at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2005. April is a regular guest on the Howard Stern show, where in 2008 she was voted the “Funniest and Hottest” comedian in America. She is currently in the documentary, “I Am Comic” which premiered at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival and is currently airing on Showtime and will also be appearing on Showtime in the stand-up special "Vegas Is My Oyster" premiering August 5th. Currently, she spends most of her time traveling the United States as a headlining stand-up comedian.
 
April has slapped a boyfriend on the toilet for renting out their home for porn shoots, stood on the North Korean border, entertained troops next to the detainee camp in Guantanamo Bay, imported a young Englishman for the summer, only to see him turned away at the border months later for overstaying his visa. She has had numerous crappy jobs-including: a nanny, Hooter’s waitress, clowns assistant, telemarketer – fired from all of them, occasionally smokes weed out of an apple and goes to Chucky Cheese with her friends, thinks double standards are ridiculous and hopes to change the world by empowering women, “One dick joke at a time.”

    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.
