Comedian Spanky Brown Originally from Memphis, TN, Spanky first took the stage in November 1997 on open mike night at The Comedy House Theater in Savannah, GA, and has been making his mark in the world of comedy with audiences screaming with laughter ever since. Almost eight years later he is regarded as one of the brightest rising stars in the art of stand-up comedy by audiences and industry alike, as well as one of the busiest.
VERSATILITY, STYLE, CLEAN (but mature) and CLEVER best describe this pure stand-up performer providing comedic insights that transcend all barriers: age, gender, urban or mainstream crowds are no obstacle for this professional. Raised a preacher’s son (even God knows he's funny), he's been a car salesman, insurance writer, advertising executive, radio personality (currently he's a contributing writer for the Tom Joyner Morning Show heard in over 100 markets), commercial actor, even served time... in the Army that is. Throw in father, step-father, husband, ex-husband, husband, ex-husband again, and well, you get the picture.
Weighing in at 300+ lbs (but he is so smooth), Spanky will eat up a room with easy southern laid-back style. Audiences all over are finding out... Spanky Brown is the NEXT BIG THING!!! VISIT FACEBOOK PAGE
Comedian Kevin White This Bostonian southerner describes himself as a wounded veteran of two disastrous marriages. It's no surprise. Raised on a strict regime of cartoons, comics books and afternoon movie marathons, Kevin's outlook on life and love have been professionally described as 'Somewhat troubled'. But it's his unique outlook that will have you feeling right at home. Kevin's loose grip on reality comes from his disjointed career as an actor. He has appeared on bit parts on HBO, a major role in the motion picture The Investigator, he's chatted with Manny, Moe and Jack in a Pep Boys commercial and even sang the blues with Al Roker on NBC's 'The Today Show'. Kevin has that look of the guy you know from that thing. But once you spend some time in his mind, you'll be reminded why so many women describe him as an 'Ex'! VISIT WEBSITE

Comedian Larry Reeb Everybody has that one coarse, smart-mouthed relative who never fails to wedge his been-there-and-done-that observations into any conversation. The undisputed King of these malcontents is Uncle Lar, Larry Reeb. According to him, “It’s a sick, sad world and I’m a happy guy.” Larry presents a dry, observational style of comedy that is punctuated with clever twists and a wonderfully stylized delivery. Just be careful how and when his famous advice is applied. It might lead to a slap in the face, or a lawsuit. VISIT WEBSITE

Comedian Jim Holder is an 18-year veteran of stand-up comedy who has headlined comedy clubs from coast-to-coast. Jim started his career at The Comedy Workshop in Houston, Texas, home of the "Texas Outlaw Comics" such as Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks.
"Bill Hicks was the first non-famous comic I ever saw live and it changed the way I thought about comedy forever! The Outlaw Comics didn't look like comedians I saw on TV. These guys owned the stage like rock stars! You never knew what was going to happen next!"
From those early influences, Jim developed the passion for stand-up comedy that he carries today. With an attitude aimed at making people laugh uncontrollably, Jim strikes incredibly close to home with his cynical descriptions of everyday subjects. His comedy is sometimes silly and hard-hitting, often spontaneous and interactive, but always funny. The question Jim receives most often after his show is "When are you coming back?" VISIT WEBSITE
Comedian Rahn Hortman never thought that one day seasoned veterans of comedy would give him personal praise for his own stage show being "refreshing" and "a departure from the norm". But fittingly, nothing about Rahn's journey to the world of stand-up comedy has been normal. Rahn credits his 5th Grade Teacher as the first to nurture his natural urge to entertain. Impressed by Rahn's good grades, but frustrated by his penchant to distract classmates with his jokes, the comedian-in-training was granted the last fifteen minutes of class to do "his show" as long as he composed himself during the first forty-five!
Rahn credits the earliest influences to his humor to Bill Cosby and Martin Lawrence. Bill Cosby's ability to tackle diverse subject matter without uttering a single curse word, and Martin Lawrence's natural gift of representing the "ordinary guy" combined to form the foundation for Rahn's vision. What resulted is a unique blend of profanity-free banter, with pointed observations about everyday people that leave no one safe.
Since relocating from Milwaukee to Tampa, Rahn Hortman has become a crowd-favorite at comedy hotspots such as The Improv and Sidesplitters. He is the champion of the W-MOR TV Channel 32 “Comedy Challenge,” and finished first out of seven finalists in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Jokers Wild Contest. VISIT WEBSITE
Comedian Al Romas began his career in comedy in the mid 1980s, cutting his teeth in the open-mic circuit of Virginia.

Within a few short years of his start, Al found himself living in New York, working full-time as a standup comic and logging tens of thousands of miles while working clubs and colleges up and down the East Coast. Al’s hilarious material and his natural rapport with his audiences also got him gigs opening for some of the biggest names in comedy, names such as Jerry Seinfeld and Dennis Miller.
Al is a firmly established headliner who has delighted audiences in an impressive list of venues ranging from Radio City Music Hall to the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines to Las Vegas, with countless gigs in between.
