Perhaps this energizer bunny began developing his off-centered and out-of-step approach to life when he was teased as a child, mistakenly labeled learning disabled and placed in special classes. Just minutes into Pete’s act he leads us to believe that maybe it wasn’t a mistake after all.

Pete got his start in show business as a lead guitarist in a Cleveland based 80’s rock group. “We wanted to be like the band A Flock of Seagulls, so we called ourselves A Peck of Peckers.” Discovering that being funny was his calling, Pete ventured into comedy competitions and a quick string of wins set off a 20-year career that has included over 7,000 shows at a multitude of venues and corporate events, touring the world, headlining comedy clubs, cruise ships, colleges, military shows and special events. “One time I even opened for the Australian Male Stripper Show Thunder From Down Under”, George remembers… “I thought it was a seminar on Irritable Bowel Syndrome.”

No slouch as an actor, Pete has appeared in several major motions pictures, including The Shawshank Redemption and The Majestic as well as appearances on Family Law, Strong Medicine, Night Shift, Comedy at Club 54, Now That’s Comedy and several national commercials.

    You know him, you love him! Well-known from The Bob and Tom Show, we welcome DONNIE BAKER!

    “Due to the fact I’m still on probation much of my background is sealed in Court 7. I swear to god it is. You can look it up but good luck getting access because the new judge is a dick and I’d say it right to his face thru a privacy fence. Again!

    A lot of people think my Mom Phyllis is my real mom. Well, she ain’t! She’s the one who basically raised me from a little bad ass in adult diapers because I was born with a condition called “Pork-a-phatitis.” Let’s just say my pork sword needed more leg room and regular pull ups wouldn’t fit me. I wasn’t even able to do regular push ups until my arms grew out when I was 14 years old. I was raised in a strip club named XXXandues when my Mom Phyllis (Sheena/Vegas/Champagne) basically ran the place. And she made more money in one summer with a broke arm than most the other girls put together. And she couldn’t even push her boobs together like they could. So you know she’s fire ass hot!

    I got my first boat when I was 17 years old. I’ve had 4 boats since including the one I’m trying to sell. When I do sell it, I’m going to get a bigger boat, so take that Mitchell. The worst place to be in life is between boats. I’ve been there too many times and I swear to god I’m never going back to that dark place. I love my boat and hate to see it go. But I’ll never sell my 7 trophies which are still in the front window at Discount Karate. I probably know more about the marshal arts than anybody I know of!

    My best friend for life is Scotty Winkler. Scotty is good people and the only honest, friend I can truly trust. I can’t wait until he gets out. Me and Scotty have been with more hot girls than anybody I know of. He was the one who introduced me to Angel Skinners. And I was the one who told him about Patty Fergusons. Looking back it’s kind of like the circle of life because now I’m with Patty and he’s been with Angel. I know. Twilight zones. Scotty is also the only other friend I have who really understands what its like to live and think like the harvest wolf. Welcome to the pack Scotty!

    My job sucks. I work for somebody who ain’t even qualified to be a supervisor. And I’d say it right to your face Randy! Dishman hired me anyways and rumor has it your days or numbered anyways. I’m tired of breaking down cardboard boxes for minimum wage especially the boxes are maximum weight. I could sue your ass. And who gave you the right to take FICA out of my check? So Shut Up Randy!!

    My Uncle Sonny has played cards with a lot of famous people including Burt Reynolds. I think David Coverales is why rock n roll is still alive today. And my goal is to push Trojan rubbers to keep working until they find one that fits me! I’ve put stretch marks in a can coozie before so do the math! If you have any other questions about my background you can look it up or call my pager to ask me right to my face.”

  • Auggie Smith
    January 19, 2019 at 8:00 PM Auggie Smith
    When Auggie takes the stage, audiences across the country quickly realize that they’re in for an evening of riveting, take-no-prisoners stand-up comedy. During Auggie’s set, pop culture and political targets are dissected piece by piece into intelligently written manic rants. His seamless rapid fire style has developed a loyal following across the country. He has spent most of the last two decades keeping a constant road schedule honing his craft and creating a truly memorable, relevant, and constantly evolving live experience.

    Keeping a continuous road schedule of clubs across the nation, Auggie introduced himself to a new legion of fans in January of 2004, with a now legendary appearance on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show. The morning was a mix of signature rants and brilliant improv highlighting his sharp point-of-view. His outstanding debut has become one their most replayed treasures.

    This led to performing in theaters across the country on the very popular Bob & Tom Comedy Tour, where audiences quickly became aware that the only thing better then listening to Auggie on the radio was sharing the energy he creates in his live performance.

  • Mike Armstrong
    January 26, 2019 at 8:00 PM Mike Armstrong
    Mike Armstrong is the ex-cop from The Bob and Tom Show and as seen on Comedy Central. Mike's an ex-cop - He'd stop cars and warn the speeding drivers about the speed traps up ahead. “I think that when I quit the police department three other cops lost their jobs. They simply didn’t need that many internal affairs officers anymore!” His kids are funny, too. When asked by his teacher about his lucky rabbit's foot his son responded, “It was the only thing left in the trap… pretty lucky huh?” When the teacher called Dad to complain about the youngster’s behavior, Mike offered his true feelings . . . “Shut up! I’m not married to you!”
