Welcome to AlaskaComedy.com’s new and improved website. My name is Jerry Evans, and over the past 20 years I’ve had the opportunity to work with and meet some of the best, most respected comedians of our time. Take a look in our “Green Room” and you’ll see what I mean. Thanks for checking us out and please take a look around, and lemme know what you think. I’ll be updating frequently.
“Hey! That thing got a Hemi?” Jon Reep!Does this face look familiar? Maybe you remember Jon as the fifth season winner on NBC's "Last Comic Standing" or have seen him on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" or the half-hour special "Comedy Central Presents: Jon Reep," maybe on his own special “Jon Reep: Metro Jethro”. He’s been on TBS’s “Pit Stop Comedy”, NBC’s “Late Friday” or CMT’s “Comedy Club” & “Comedy stage” among others.If it’s not from his stand-up performances then you probably know Jon from Dodge's popular ad campaign as the "Hemi guy" where Jon is known to millions as the redheaded hillbilly in the Dodge Ram commercials who leans out of a beat-up car and utters the now famous line: "That thing gotta Hemi?" As an actor Jon has played the pot smoking farmer “Raymus” from the movie “Harold and Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay”, and the dim witted cop Gerald Bob from the ABC Sitcom “Rodney”. He played a goodwill worker in Disney Channels “Good Luck Charlie” and was the HEMI guy in Dodge Truck’s popular ad campaign. Most recently he can be seen as Jed Forney in “Eastbound and Down” and was the host of SPEED TV’s, “R U Faster than a Redneck.” He can next be seen in the Steven Quale film “Into the Storm” starring Richard Armitage and Matt Walsh.Born in Hickory, NC, Jon is one of the hardest working comics in America, performing on television, in films and selling out clubs and theaters across the country. His show is supersonic energy filled with non-stop characters, super clever writing and of course the one talent that separates Jon from all other comedians in the world: He's the best redneck dancer since Elvis.SaturdayApril 30thThe Blue Loon7 & 9:30pmTickets $25Available at Gulliver’s BooksTickets and reserved tables soon at TheBlueLoon.com
The Hilarious Comedian/Hypnotist Rich Guzzi!With recent appearances on Access Hollywood and in Parade Magazine, how does Comic Hypnotist Rich Guzzi plan to keep the momentum going? How about a nation wide 300 show comedy tour to prepare for the one hour special he is developing!Rich Guzzi is a comedian that does hypnosis, not a hypnotist that does comedy; that is what ultimately sets his show apart from others. At any given time, Rich can take an already hilarious situation happening on stage and turn it into an unforgettable moment. Hypnotizing a group of audience members and being able to have them act outrageously is one thing, but making the scenarios create a storyline that produces outright hysteria is another, all created with new audience members every night making each show a unique experience.BEvery night Rich performs a high wire act. Bringing audience volunteers to the stage and then hypnotizing them right before your eyes. He doesn’t even dim the lights because he wants everybody in attendance to see the induction process. Once hypnotized, he then puts them into some of the most outrageously funny scenarios you could possibly imagine, obviously to the delight of the friends left in the crowd watching in disbelief.Interestingly enough though, believing is exactly what Rich wants to accomplish with his show every night. You see, its not enough for Guzzi to just make you laugh really hard. He wants to have every person leave that showroom knowing that Hypnosis is real. Not some spooky witch doctor trick. By showing the true benefits, he can hopefully take the stigma away, give it wide spread acceptance and bring it to the masses.SaturdayMay 22nd The Blue Loon7 & 9:30pmTickets Available soonAvailable at Gulliver’s BooksTickets and reserved tables soon at TheBlueLoon.com
