Axis of Awesome:

The Axis of Awesome are The World’s Most Awesomest Comedy Band. In the incredible time that they have been together, they have done literally so much stuff. They have blown audiences away across Australia and around the world with their mixture of original comedy songs and pop parodies.
Their Four Chord Song is one of the highest rated comedy video of all time on YouTube, and has received over 20 million hits. They have made TV appearances in Australia, the UK and Sweden and their albums “Scissors, Paper, ROCK!” and “Infinity Rock Explosion” and DVD “The Axis of Awesome Live” are hits with audiences worldwide.
They recently picked up the Time Out Award for Best Australian Act at the Sydney Comedy Festival, and they are also recipients of the prestigious Moosehead Award for their first ever Melbourne International Comedy Festival show, “The Axis of Awesome Comeback Spectacular”. Their most recent show “Songs in the Key of Awesome” had its Australian premiere at The Sydney Opera house. The Axis of Awesome are currently touring the United States.
They leave men laughing and women gasping (and also laughing), and before long you’ll be laughing and/or gasping, depending on your gender.
The Axis of Awesome are:
Jordan Raskopoulos: Lead vocals. Star of stage and screen, Jordan is best known for his work on “The Ronnie Johns Half Hour” on Channel 10. His memorable characters and humorous lines were both memorable and humorous. Currently a National Theatresports Champion, Jordan was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2007 Melbourne International Comedy Festival for his one-man show, “The Adventures of the Man With the Dominant Claw”. Jordan enjoys Snickers bars and the music of David Bowie.
Benny Davis: Keyboard, vocals. A classically trained musician, Benny brings some class to the Axis. And a portable keyboard. As an original member of the sketch comedy troupe “The Delusionists”, Benny was a stand out in their 2007 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Show. A regular cast member of almost every improvised comedy show in Sydney, Benny is a virtuoso on the keyboard. Benny enjoys Super Mario Galaxy on Nintendo Wii and the music of Billy Joel.
Lee Naimo: Guitar, way way back up vocals. One of Sydney’s best improvisers, Lee has made stuff up while touring Australia and internationally. Along with Jordan, Lee is a current National Theatresports Champion, and he is co-creator of the hit live show, “Scrabble Unscripted”, which was a sold-out success at both the Melbourne and Sydney Cracker Comedy Festivals in 2006 and 2007. Lee enjoys sunshine and the music of Hannah Montanna

  • Brett Walkow
    September 16, 2016 at 7:30 PM Brett Walkow
    For over 15 years, Brett has enjoyed creating a vast array of characters for original comedy shows in which he starred, co-wrote, directed, and produced. The shows have featured Brett on The Tonight Show, Seinfeld, E! TV, Comic Relief, HBO, and as recurring characters on MTV... just to name a few. Things kicked up another notch for Brett when he went on to co-star with heavyweight champ James Toney in his award winning short film ‘Fight Night’ ; which he also wrote and co-produced. The film was chosen for two of the world's largest festivals - Sony's Tropfest & The Just For Laughs Comedy Festival - which that year Brett was also asked to be a host. The following year Brett was given the honor of being selected as one of 22 comics from around the world as one of The New Faces Of Comedy at The Just For Laughs Festival. In the last few years Brett has been chomping at the boob tube show by show. The NFL Quarterback Challenge... The Farrah Fawcett Story... And after appearing for his 5th appearance in Las Vegas doing stand up, the writers of NBC’s Las Vegas got the idea to write Brett into 2 episodes. Including one that was rated one of Las Vegas’ highest ever. 2010 flew in and Brett found himself touring the country doing stand-up, appearing in 3 new commercials, 5 new films and 5 new pilots - From Game Show Network to the creators of Laugh-In to Brett's new short reaching over 20,000 hits on Youtube. Most recently, Brett became one of the new chat show hosts on Actors Entertainment & Actors Reporter. With over 3 million viewers in the last year, Brett talks it up weekly with everyone from Kevin Nealon to the Red Carpet at the LA Music Awards. Stay tuned. Who knows what’s next?

  • Cindy Kaza - Medium
    September 21, 2016 at 7:30 PM Cindy Kaza - Medium
    Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium.  Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter. This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit.
     
    Cindy has been extremely intuitive since very early childhood.  At the age of 10 she had her first memorable experience with a spirit. Days after losing a childhood friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience and convinced herself it was just a dream.  It wasn’t until her early 20’s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multi-faceted abilities as a psychic medium.  She began training not only in the United States but also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. She believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess and that everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!

  • James Johann
    September 23, 2016 at 7:30 PM James Johann
    James Johann was born in the Midwest during the 70’s era of bell-bottom jeans, wood paneled station wagons and disco music. His childhood upbringing was significantly influenced by country music, countless bad haircuts and heavy doses of Catholic school. In 1991, after being fired from several “McJobs” James began his standup career in Kansas City. But don’t let James’ boyish appearance fool you; he’s a ten-year veteran of the stand-up comedy circuit. His self-deprecating sense of humor and high-energy style all come together to create a unique onstage persona. James relies more on his brain than the profane, and his comedy often hits upon the universal theme of failure, and provides a truthful and hilarious reflection of life as he sees it.
     
    In July 2004 James performed in the “New Faces of Comedy” category at the Montreal “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival. James was also featured on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” which aired in 2005.
     
    Besides headlining comedy clubs nationwide, James just completed the theatre tour “Paying For The New Trailer” (Blue Collar Comedy Tour) starring Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy.

  • Kevin Bozeman
    September 30, 2016 at 7:30 PM Kevin Bozeman
    It was 1999, six years after finishing his collegiate basketball career at Division III Whitewater College, and bouncing around jobs that Kevin found himself in the real world with no real job skills and a strong desire to work an hour a day.  What to do?  Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Kevin decided to head over to nearby Madison, WI and try the “Open-Mic Night”.  “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and lets be honest I had nothing better going on”.
     
    Thirteen years later Kevin is still going on-stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements.  “For an hour a night I’m wildly successful”.  With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country.  In 2000 he was the winner of the Midwest region of the HBO “Comedy Competition” and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist.  He performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” in 2003, and finished 2nd in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005.  He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010.  This past summer he co-starred in the Indie film “Flat Chested” starring Alicia Witt and Luke Perry.
     
    He currently resides in Chicago.
