Stagebenders: Last Laugh 2009
Kim Thomassen and Gust Alexander were two junior high school buddies from Wayzata, MN who liked to make each other laugh.
Today, under the playful moniker "The Stagebenders." , they
are America's top comedy duo, as winning the MTV Comedy Challenge for two consecutive
Playing to sell-out crowds and rave reviews just stokes the fire of their fame
Die-hard fans include Geena Davis, The Kinks and the legendary Budd Friedman ( the Stage-
benders headline regularly at "Improvs" all over the United States ). TV and film appearances
include The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ABC's America's Funniest People, MTV's The Jenny
McCarthy Show, TREKKIES 2, and the Coen Brothers' The Naked Man.
After fifteen years, their act has been honed to perfection The Stagebenders' act is a nonstop,
fast-paced hurricane of interactive comedy that has to be experienced to be believed. Once they
whip their audience into a comedy frenzy, no other comic dares perform after them.
Their current project is The Stagebenders TV Show, a scripted, half-hour sitcom. If it leaves the
audience anywhere near as frenzied as their stage show, even Abbott and Costello wouldn't want
to follow them.
