Mark Lundholm has performed in all 50 states and 10 foreign countries. From world-renowned musicians, heads of state, Fortune 500 companies to rehabilitation centers and convicted felons, Mark has truly entertained on the world's stage. He's appeared on Comedy Central, Showtime, A&E, CBS and NBC. Mark wrote and performed his own one-man show off-Broadway in New York City reaching critical acclaim, and in his spare time created the now staple DVD series, Humor in Treatment and the Recovery Board Game. One thing is clear about Mark Lundholm - he's not slowing down anytime soon.
Kurtis Matthews began his comedy career at the Comedy Store in Hollywood in 1984. He soon became a regular at the Improv chain, appearing and touring with Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison, Adam Sandler, Judd Apatow, George Lopez, Rodney Dangerfield, Janeane Garofalo, Alonzo Bodden and many others. He has performed in 48 of 50 states, clubs, college, cruises, rehab centers, prisons and halfway houses. His television appearances include A&E's Evening at the Improv, Celebrity Rehab 2 and starring in the BBC's Find Me The Funny.
Jesse Joyce started his comedy career in Pittsburgh in 1998. In 2001, he made the move to New York City and has been earning a reputation as a rising star on the comedy scene with performances loved by crowds around the world, and a writing style admired and respected by comedians at every level. Spawned from a family of lawyers, professional jugglers, an army ranger and a circus clown, Joyce developed his own unique brand of comic charisma which he brings to the stand-up comedy stage entwining distinctively intelligent material and high energy performance. In 2010 he was a top 20 Semi-Finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing. Currently, Joyce can be seen regularly on RedEye with Greg Gutfield on the Fox News Network where he brings his acerbic wit to bear on the events of the day.
Ken Townsend began performing comedy in 2003. Known for making trouble and getting laughs wherever he goes, Ken Townsend is the illegitimate child of Molly Hatchet and the Ramones, baptized in corn liquor, lit on fire and raised on a steady diet of pro wrestling and comic books. Ken is a favorite at rehabs, halfway houses, convenience store security cameras, and more forgiving comedy establishments worldwide.
Please note that Jesse Joyce will not be appearing in this performance.
