The Adventures of Mike Armstrong
He's sold out comedy clubs all over the country, is a former cop, had hobos that lived in his front yard as a kid and has even jumped over a tiger while in the Bahamas, so it's safe to say that Mike Armstrong has no shortage in the interesting life experiences department. But that's what makes his comedy shows so enjoyable and why he's received countless standing ovations. Armstrong has a story or a prank he's pulled to go along with just about any topic, and he tells them in a way that makes it nearly impossible not to laugh. Mike is a regular on the BOB&TOM Comedy All-Stars tour and recently released his first comedy album, Comedy Police.
Comedian Jackie Kashian got her first taste for comedy while heckling Sam Kinison in a Madison, WI comedy club back in 1985. Management told her that if she wanted to be the center of attention, open mic night was on Sundays. 25 Years later, she’s the one on stage dealing with drunk patrons. This L.A. resident has starred in a couple of one-woman shows, has been featured on Comedy Central, NBC, VH1, A&E and ABC Australia and guest starred as a cop on the last season of "Murphy Brown."

Comedian Ruben Paul, not to be confused with the actor who played Pee Wee Herman, has been keeping busy. Ruben's acting resume continues to grow including roles in films such asGround Control, Deliver Us From Eva and Pensacola Wings. As you can see, Ruben is a man on the move, but he still finds time to continue his work on the road touring the comedy club circuit. Ruben's act has been featured on Comic View, The Late Late Show and HBO Comedy Showcase just to name a few. On twitter and facebook.
On the Air
As one of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces, Larry Miller is not only a great stand-up comedian, he has appeared in over 100 film and television shows. He began his career with a memorable cameo as the brown-nosing store manager in Pretty Woman and has since gone on to delight audiences in some of the most unforgettable roles in such films as Best in Show, Waiting For Guffman, The Princess Diaries I&II and The Nutty Professor I&II. Miller can currently be heard as the voice of the French golfing goose, Marcel in the animated 3D film Alpha and Omega and on his new podcast "This Week with Larry Miller."
Tommy Johnagin began his stand-up career at the ripe young age of 18, a decision his parents were less than thrilled with. But how could they argue this life choice when their son obviously possessed a gift for joke telling, and more importantly, promised to pay them back for the six semesters of college he "wasted." While on stage (and hopefully on the air) Tommy doesn’t curse, but what he does do is find the humor in his life and the people he meets, (especially in his practical joke loving father). Tommy has been featured on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and and was a finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing." Follow Tommy on twitter. Tommy's new album, "Stand Up Comedy 2" is available now!
