Brian Regan's blend of sophisticated writing and physical expression make him one of the most successful comedians in the business today. He has a deft ability to pinpoint the most specific situations and make them relatable to audiences that span generations. Regan has been featured on all the major late night talk shows as well as Showtime, Comedy Central and MTV. In fact, with his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and in 2012 he made his 25th appearance, the most of any comedian on the CBS show. His first CD has sold over 150,000 copies, and his past two DVDs have been bestsellers. You can get his new CD, All By Myself, on his website. Brian is currently on a nationwide tour, and if he comes to your town, he's a definite must see. Follow Brian on twitter. You can also catch him in an episode of Jerry Seinfeld's new online series "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee"
It's a well known fact that for most part, comedians are bitter and angry people. But every rule has an exception, and in this case, that exception is Jim Sibley, a man who actually loves life and considers himself an optimist. What in the hell is going on? With a comedy style known to be original, fun and exciting, Jim tries to keep his act clean and upbeat. And as odd as that combination may sound, it still translates into funny stuff.
FACTOID - James Sibley gets additional work as a voice-over guy for a number of commercials though you may not recognize him without his distinct southern drawl.
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
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.
