The Great American Storyteller
Known as one of the great story tellers in comedy, "Tonight Show" veteran Ron Shock doesn’t have to write a lot of material, because almost all of his stories are true. When you’ve lived a life as adventurous as his, it’s almost impossible to make anything up. Before becoming a comedian, Ron studied to be a priest, was on a chain gang in Louisiana, was arrested for being a jewel thief, then spent time in prison. But that’s not all, when he got out of prison he became the VP of a Fortune 500 Company and an inventor who holds three patents in electronics. Now, with all that excitement behind him, Shock has turned to stand-up comedy and taken his tales on the road to clubs across the country.
Jesse Joyce began his standup career in the comedy clubs, but not in the way you'd think. His first gig was actually as a janitor, working at the Pittsburgh Funny Bone cleaning up bathrooms and scrubbing urinals. All the while Joyce was perfecting his material and eventually traded in his mop for a microphone, becoming the club’s emcee. Since then he's been featured onThe Tonight Show, Live at Gotham Entertainment Tonight, the short-lived Jokevision Network and was the host of AMC's Date Night. Oh, and he’s also won two Addy awards for commercial writing. Follow Jesse on twitter.
