With two 1-hour specials that aired on Showtime & Comedy Central, (Red-Nexican & Hick-Spanic) Alex Reymundo appeals to all demographics. Three words describe him best: "FUNNY as HELL." After 5 years of road gigging Alex went on to Los Angeles where he discovered an exploding Latino comedy scene. It wasn’t long before Alex was touring with greats like Paul Rodriquez and Ron White. This twenty year standup has widened his skills in three films, Permanent Vacation, The Movement and El Matador has done voice over work for many companies as well as Disney’s animated film Cars.

It's time for another exciting episode of the best joke filled, news feature hosted by a stand-up comedian named Bob Zany, The Zany Report. But the Report isn't the only thing you'll get when Bob calls in, we'll also find out where he's playing next, Bing Crosby will tell a joke, and some lucky fan will win prizes after fixing one Zany's less than successful punch lines. So you'd better tune it because it's going to be huge! In other news, Bob was recently featured in the Matt Damon film, The Informant! and is the star of the new documentary Close But No Cigar: Bob Zany which you can find here and pre-order the 2-DVD set here. Follow Bob on Facebook and twitter. Bob also has a new Podcast, "The Bob Zany Show" with Zan Aufdeerheide.
Standing a towering 6’3” and weighing in at over 200 pounds, Tim Northern may seem intemidating, but once this gentle giant opens his mouth, you'll realize the only thing you have to be worried about is him splitting your sides. With an oddball sense of humor, Tim presents his standup comedy with an articulate, smart and deceptively witty style. For most performers, saying 'I love y'all' to the crowd is just another line fill time, but spend any time listening to Northern speak and you discover he's sincere. Tim’s a regular performer on the national comedy club circuit and appeared on CBS's Star Search where he advanced to the finals.
Like Father, Like Son

John Bonham died in 1980, but Jason, who has marked a few places in music history himself, has stepped in from time to time to help keep his father's memory alive. In 1988, Jason took his father's spot in the televised, first-ever Led Zeppelin reunion at the Atlantic Records 40th Anniversary concert, which included Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones. Later than year. he went on to tour with Page and recorded the album Outrider with him. Now Bonham is once again honoring his legendary late father with the "Led Zeppelin Experience" tour.
