Ralphie May

September 10, 2015

Long-time fans of Ralphie were joined by countless new fans when America thought he was robbed of the winner's title. Despite the show's outcome, Ralphie's special brand of comedy combines the familiar elements of hip-hop and topical comedy with a dash of southern down-home flavor and quick wit, making him one of the most popular comedians in the country. His first DVD, appropriately titled "Just Correct," went platinum!

Ballet Folklorico de Mexico

September 25, 2015

For five decades this folkloric ballet ensemble has presented dances in costumes that reflect the traditional culture of Mexico. The ensemble has appeared under the name, Ballet Folklorico de Mexico de Amalia Hernandez. The women usually go bare foot while dancing.

Jay Leno

October 29, 2015

Love him or hate him, the hugely controversial Leno followed in the footsteps of legendary NBC late-night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson as the host of the Emmy Award-winning and top-rated "The Tonight Show," until his last show in 2014. You would think that he would be eager for some downtime - instead, he continues to hone his sharp, good humored roasting and standup skills at engagements across the country, often exceeding 300 dates per year!

Frank Caliendo

November 6, 2015

America's top impressionist and comedian Frank Caliendo has become well known for his hilarious and extremely accurate impressions of a variety of American sports commentators, politicians and celebrities including Morgan Freeman and John Madden. His career highs include work on popular Fox Network TV show MADtv and appearances on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the Late Show with David Letterman.

Brian Regan

December 5, 2015

Critics and peers agree, Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The "perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality" (Wall Street Journal), Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations. His clean language and sharp, sarcastic obersations on everyday life have led him to be known as the "comedian's comedian".
