Upcoming Shows

At The NAACP Image Awards with a young Kenan Thompson and Nick Cannon. Guess who stood out? It was surreal hangin’ with Cheech & Chong. At age 15 I could recite every word of Big Bambu & Los Cochinos We all look the same! Please always remember the night we shared (what the hell does that mean?)- Kevin James To Jerry, Thanks for Bringing me  to Alaska!    -  Louis CK Home Jamie Kennedy said that may have been the craziest gig he's ever done. And that's saying something. Got to open for Jim Gaffigan in front of 4,100 people at the Alaska State Fair. The payoff. Great time with Brian Posehn & Glenner closing out the 2015 Fairbanks Funny Festival.
Kick off the season with       Darren Carter                        “The Party Starter!” Darren Carter continues to amaze and amuse standing room only audiences with his blend of unique and multi-cultural comedy.  Growing up in a racially mixed blue-collar neighborhood, Darren Carter definitely stood out at school, with his red hair and black-framed glasses.  But, he went from nerd to cool -- Opie to Red Rapper -- when he started to rap, break dance, and hip hop, all with easy humor.  Darren Carter still sees himself as a "fish out of water," and this is the core of his accessible comedy.  Moving to San Diego in 1993, Darren Carter worked the comedy circuit there for two years and landed his first national commercial for Miller Beer before moving to Los Angeles.  During the next three years, he headlined at The Comedy Store, The Improv, The Laugh Factory, Stand-Up New York and performed on MTV's "Spring Break" and Showtime's "The Latino Laugh Festival."  Most recently, Darren has guest starred on "The X Show," "The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno," Comedy Central and "The Jamie Foxx Show," along with opening in concert for Chris Rock and Paul Rodriguez. Continuing to create his wacky and unique characters, Darren is now branching out into voiceover work and has a new stand-up comedy CD.

1 Night/2 Shows - Funny Fest Finale    The Sklar Brothers! The Sklar Brothers, are a post- modern take on a stand up comedy duo. Neil Strauss of the New York Times once wrote “Their comedy accepts the reality of being twins but does not use it as a crutch. Instead, they work their physical and mental similarities and correspondences, their status as imperfect carbon copies of each other. In their comedy the straight man is often an echo.” They have released 4 critically acclaimed comedy albums, have had two Comedy Central Half Hour Presents specials, and currently have a one hour stand up special on Netflix, titled “What Are We Talking About” Their next one hour special will appear on Seeso in 2017. Randy and Jason are also writers, directors and actors appearing in a wide variety of shows from Entourage to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia to Maron, to Curb Your Enthusiasm. They are currently recurring characters on TruTV’s Those Who Can’t. However, they are perhaps most well known for their show Cheap Seats, a cult hit that appeared on ESPN Classic for 77 episodes. Most importantly, Randy and Jason are fathers and husbands living in Los Angeles. (not with each other — that would be weird.) Information on Workshop Signups and Tickets coming soon!
