Heywood Banks is simply one-of-a-kind, almost impossible to describe, with a style his very own. Equal parts genius and buffoon, this songwriter-comic-singer-poet-musician has become a cult hero and a pop icon, with a show that appeals to college students, stoners, businessmen, yuppies, rednecks, punks, kids or your grandmother.

Heywood has been featured in "Rolling Stone Magazine" and "People Magazine." He won First Place in the Johnnie Walker Comedy Search Contest.  Heywood has appeared on A&E's "Evening at the Improv," MTV's "1/2 Hour Comedy Hour," CNN's "Hollywood Minute," "Caroline's Comedy Hour," "Entertainment Tonight," "Showtime Comedy Club Network," "Dr. Demento Show," "12th Annual HBO Young Comedians Special with Paul Rodriguez" and is a frequent guest on the national Bob and Tom radio show.

OTHER GREAT SHOWS!

  • Greg Hahn
    March 07, 2020 at 8:00 PM Greg Hahn
    A favorite on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show. He has appeared on Late Night with Conan Obrien, Comedy Central, CBS, ABC, FOX, MTV and CMT.
    Greg Hahn has parlayed his absurdly energetic, all out style of physical humor, one liners and crowd work into a performance of immediate pandemonium and continuous laughs. His unique stylings have led to numerous television, corporate and theater appearances throughout the US and Canada.
    While in New York, Greg developed into a touring headliner and costarred in the independent film Tomorrow Night which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Then, after successful shows at the Montreal and Chicago Comedy Festivals, Greg enjoyed television appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien (NBC), Premium Blend (Comedy Central), Make Me Laugh (5 episodes, Comedy Central), Louis CK’s Pulp Comics (Comedy Central), 30 Seconds to Fame (Fox), Cedric the Entertainer Presents (Fox) and Star Search (CBS).
    When appearing on Star Search, Greg was spotted by Tom Griswold of the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show. Greg has since established himself as a favorite guest on the show and starred on the Bob @ Tom Comedy Central Special. He also headlines the Friends of The Bob @ Tom Theater Tour, which included a stop at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

    A return appearance to the Montreal Comedy Festival along with the Halifax Comedy Festival and wild appearances on Country Music Television’s “Comedy Stage”, “Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen”  and running for president on “TOSH.O” (Comedy Central) have added to Greg’s popularity.
    Greg now lives in Los Angeles where he continues to infiltrate the TV and movie biz with the intention of buying a llama farm and a kitchen fish tank.

  • Mark Sweeney
    March 14, 2020 at 8:00 PM Mark Sweeney
    This Comedy Central veteran turns topics as intergender relationships and golf inside out with his sarcastic and witty brand of hilarity. A native of St. Louis, Mark mixes Midwest convictions with wise-guy attitude. Always a tad irreverent, Mark Sweeney has a way of making even the victims of notorious attention laugh about their shortcomings. The four years he spent in the U.S. Marines were forgettable, either that or he just can't remember them. Though his military history is a bit fuzzy, he's constantly being reminded that at some point he attended college, which is why he's still on the run from the student loan collectors. Mark's credits also include acting roles in Boston Public, The Visitor, and Days of Our Lives. Mark is a long-time Funny Bone favorite and an acknowledged attraction at corporate events.

  • Michael Winslow
    March 21, 2020 at 8:00 PM Michael Winslow
    Michael Winslow had his first television appearance on The Gong Show in which he squeezed in sound-a likes of Benji the movie dog, Star Trek, and Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze”. Winslow, who was born on September 6, 1958 in Spokane, Washington, played the role of the Radar Operator, who was in charge of the radar and could imitate realistic sounds using his own voice. He is best known for his role as Sgt. Larvelle “Motor Mouth” Jones in the Police Academy series of movies and TV shows. In 1985, Island released a 12″ of Michael Winslow titled “I Am My Own Walkman”. He also appeared as a radar operator in the movie Spaceballs, in which he performs all the sound effects during his scene himself. Mel Brooks (who wrote, directed, produced, and co-starred in the film), stated that by doing so, Winslow saved the film money. Winslow is also a motivational speaker. Since the fall of 2008, Winslow has hosted the motion picture television series called “Way Back Wednesday with Winslow” on the cable super station WGN America, which features movies mostly released in the 1980s. Michael continues to perform stand-up comedy around the globe.

  • Jordan Rock
    March 28, 2020 at 8:00 PM Jordan Rock

    Seeing this calm, poised young comedian on stage it’s easy to forget that Jordan Rock is just 23 years old. That’s because he speaks with a wisdom and candor well beyond his age. Of course being mentored by big brothers Chris and Tony Rock doesn’t hurt either. With that kind of rep to live up to, it’s hard not to deliver, and deliver is exactly what Jordan does night after night. Bright, versatile and instantly likeable, this young man has already established himself as a legitimate act and earned the respect of his peers. Being born in the same Brooklyn, NY home that already spawned comedic greatness but raised in the semi-rural setting of Georgetown, SC. Rock’s diverse roots make it easy for him to relate his message to any crowd. Ever the perfectionist, Jordan is constantly improving and perfecting his craft.

    They say that success is when opportunity meets preparedness; well for the youngest Rock a star is rising and he is prepared to ride it to the top.
