SCOTT HANSEN is the unprecedented, 5-time winner of the Minnesota Comedian of the Year award. The award winning comedian has made millions laugh with successful national TV appearances on HBO, Showtime, A&E and E!. Scott has developed and created two pilots and a series for Comedy Central including " Access America" which starred Fred Willard, Digest America and "Seriously Weird Magazine", which starred Joel Hodgson (Mystery Science Theatre 3000).

Creatively, Scott has written comedy material that has been performed on the "Tonight Show" or "David Letterman" by Jay Leno, Louie Anderson and Roseanne Barr. As an actor Scott starred in the short thriller "Warped " which was directed by Roger Nygaard ( "Trekkies", "Mind of the Married Man" ) which won the Houston International Film Festival and in the feature film "Crossing the Bridge directed by Mike Binder ( The Upside of Anger)



JEFF GERBINO moved from  New York to Minneapolis, MN. in the 1970's. The reason for the move was common among young men of the '70's: love of a woman. He also had a love for comedy. The love of a woman provided a 29 year marriage and two children. The love of comedy provided the spark to a new, national comedy industry that was still a laugh embryo.

When a small bar in Nordeast Minneapolis advertised a comedy contest, Jeff was the first to sign up for the event. When the event was over he convinced the bar owner to let him do weekly shows in the blue collar room. Comedian Scott Hansen helped Jeff build a show.After a few months comedians starting burrowing their way out of the paneled walls of the dingy nightclub.  The St. Paul Pioneer Press called Jeff the "founding father" of the Twin Cities comedy scene as Mickey Finn's quickly became "the place to be" on Friday and Saturday nights.Jeff moved to L.A. and won the L.A. Professional Comedians Contest, appeared on HBO, Showtime, NBC.CBS and was a featured performer on Air America.

THE STAGEBENDERS (Kim Thomassen and Gust Alexander) are two junior high school buddies from Minneapolis that cracked up all of their friends. They are now America's funniest comedy duo! They are the only national performers to ever win the "MTV Comedy Challenge" twice in a row!

As seen on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno", Gust Alexander and Kim Thomassen bill themselves with the playful moniker "The Stagebenders."  This dynamic duo has tappeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ABC's America's Funniest People, MTV's The Jenny McCarthy Show, the Paramount feature film TREKKIES 2, and the Coen Brothers' The Naked Man.

After fifteen years, their act has been honed to perfection. Once they whip their audience into a comedy frenzy, no other comic dares perform after them. The Los Angeles Times has said this about the comedy twosome: "With a honed ability to play off of each other as well as the audience, the Stagebenders have mastered the art of improvisation!"
