Greatest Athlete of All-Time
Considered the Greatest Olympic athlete of all-time, in many circles, Mark Spitz is synonymous with excellence. He is world renown and one of the most recognized faces in the World. In 2000, Mark was voted Athlete of the Century in water sports and one of the six greatest Olympians ever by Sports Illustrated. Recently, the International Olympic Committee selected Mark as one of its five athletes of the Century. Mark is a highly requested public speaker throughout the World. He has also executed endorsements for Xerox, Kodak, Bausch & Lomb, John Hancock Financial Services, General Motors, General Mills, Swatch and many others. Mark will continue to be a very hot commodity as long as there is an Olympic Games somewhere in the world or the desire by a group to hear from one of the greatest living legends of all-time in sports.
Dan St. Paul
If you've heard his piece The First Baseball Game, you've probably guessed that comedian Dan St. Paul is a huge baseball fan. But outside the ballpark, he's also a suburban husband and father who has to deal with the same daily frustrations as everyone else. The only difference being that while others just complain about their problems, Dan uses his as fodder for stand-up comedy. Dan St. Paul is a member of the Stand-Up Dads comedy tour, and has been featured on a number of BOB&TOM All-Stars shows. Follow Dan on twitter.
When you see Auggie Smith on stage, he may sounds like he's just manically ranting about whatever's pissed him off that day, but in actuality, every part of his act has been a meticulously crafted, well thought out and intelligently dissected into a rapid fire, seamlessly style of raving comedy. Smith has been spreading the "Word of Aug" for over a decade now, and audiences are flocking to his shows to hear more. Along with a very popular DVD and CD set, Auggie is veteran of the BOB&TOM Comedy All-Stars Tour, has been showcased at the Montreal Comedy Festival and has appeared in a number of radio and TV commercials. In other news Auggie just won the San Francisco and Seattle Comedy Competitions, making him the only person ever to win both in the same year. Auggie's new CD "Smell The Thunder" is also now on sale.

Comedian John Evans is known for three things on the BOB&TOM Show. The first is his ability to scat along with any song (a talent that comes in handy more often than not), the second is his fondness for thrift stores and vintage clothing (which is how he got the nickname "High Plains Thrifter), and the third is his uncanny resemblance to cereal spokes-monster Count Chocula (according to Tom).
