A full night of fun, all under one roof!

Drew Lynch

16 and Over Show

In 2015, Drew Lynch captured the hearts of America with his Golden Buzzer performance on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent. “The person I was before would probably never hangout with who I am today” is the statement that resonated most in capturing audiences across the country, as they fell in love with Drew’s charming wit and genuine vulnerability every week of the competition. “Do something every day that scares you” is a motto Drew lives by.

Drew becoming a comedian was almost as unintentional as capturing America’s hearts. Originally from Indianapolis, at the age of 19, Drew moved to Los Angeles with aspirations of becoming an actor; a dream he had since he was a kid. An unexpected softball accident just a year into his acting career left Drew with a severe stutter and crushed his hopes of ever performing again.

But his continued drive to become an entertainer forced him in a different direction, often reflecting on the “softball that humbly changed his life and gave him a career”. Drew’s vulnerabilty in dealing with his stutter and making it relatable to real-life situations propelled him each week of the competition – advancing him to the finals and ultimately landing him first runner-up on season 10 of America’s Got Talent. Drew attributes much of his success from his ability to be honest, genuinely facing the “elephant in the room” head on. Inspired by comedians Bo Burnham, Louis C.K, he now headlines Comedy Clubs across the country.

Since his success on America’s Got Talent, Drew’s career has come full circle and he has broken back into the acting scene. Drew recently garnered a recurring role on the Marc Maron Show, has appeared on “Dr. Oz,” and as a celebrity guest on the game show “Idiot Test.” He is collaborating on a book, and ultimately becoming the actor he always dreamed of, with a now different and enlightened perspective on who he thought he was, and who he is today.

Steve O

18 and Over

Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) has become a household name and it all started when he snatched a video camera from his father’s closet when he was fifteen years old. From there he started producing homemade skateboarding videos featuring dangerous stunts mixed with comical behavior.

He was born in London and by the age of twelve, had lived in five countries and communicated fluently in three different languages. He holds citizenship in three countries – the United States, He was born in London and by the age of twelve, had lived in five countries and communicated fluently in three different languages. He holds citizenship in three countries – the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

After finishing high school in London, and completing a year at the University of Miami, Steve-O realized that college wasn’t for him. He enrolled in Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Clown College to help further his goal of becoming a professional stuntman. After graduating Clown College, and determined to make it in Hollywood, he began to pitch his home videos to producers.

Eventually, Steve-O’s videos made it into the hands of Jeff Tremaine (Jackass Creator/Director/Producer) who was working with Johnny Knoxville to create a stunt based reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season of JACKASS in 2000. In 2001, Steve-O launched his own “Steve-O Don’t Try This At Home Tour”, establishing himself as an accomplished stage performer, at venues throughout the U.S. and in a dozen countries.

When the JACKASS TV series ended in 2002, the team moved on to JACKASS: THE MOVIE, released by Paramount in October of that year. Shortly thereafter, Steve-O and fellow JACKASS alum, Chris Pontius, were given a spin-off show entitled WILDBOYZ, which aired on MTV and MTV2 and lasted four seasons. In 2006, Paramount released JACKASS: NUMBER 2 in theaters and Steve-O continued to thrill audiences with his outrageous stunts.

In 2009 he competed on ABC’s hit show, DANCING WITH THE STARS, and lasted six weeks, despite an injury and having virtually no dancing ability whatsoever.

In 2010, Paramount released JACKASS: 3D. Since then, Steve-O has become a New York Times Bestselling Author with the release of his memoir, ‘Professional Idiot,’ and has established himself as a force in the world of stand-up comedy. Thus far (and still counting), his career as a performer has brought him to a total of 38 countries, and his first hour-long comedy special, GUILTY AS CHARGED, recently premiered on Showtime and performed in the top one percent of all Showtime comedy specials.

Most importantly, however, Steve-O has been clean and sober since March of 2008 and lives a healthy, vegan lifestyle in the Los Angeles area…but he still has no problem stapling his balls to his leg.

“Ms. Kirkman knows how to deliver a one-liner, but her inclination is to linger in the telling of a story. She digs into a subject, embroidering it with jokes at various angles. A huge number of her bits culminate in vivid metaphors. Though delivered in an effortless conversational style, her comedy has the meticulous detail that can come only from repetition and experience.” – The New York Times

Dave Attell

Born in Queens and raised on Long Island, Dave Attell got into stand-up comedy in the late eighties after graduating from New York University with a degree in Film and Television. Attell used this prestigious degree to land amazing jobs in the food service industry – as a waiter. At night he would hit the “open mic” circuit in Manhattan. After many years, Attell worked his way up through the club scene onto the road, touring across America as a national headliner and developing a huge following among fans and the industry alike.

Dave Attell was the creator and host of “Dave’s Old Porn” on Showtime. “Dave’s Old Porn” has featured such talent as Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler, Adam Carolla and Daniel Tosh.

Dave’s new Stand Up Series, DAVE ATTELL’S COMEDY UNDERGROUND and his new one hour special, ROAD WORK are both currently airing on Comedy Central.

He was named one of the “25 Funniest People in America” by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery and his choice of material that can best be described as “very adult” has earned him the reputation as a “comic’s comic.” But if you ask Attell, he’d say, “I’m just trying to get some laughs and sell some drinks.”

In 2001, Attell used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series, “Insomniac with Dave Attell” for Comedy Central.   A travelogue show in which Attell goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, The New York Times called the show, “a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog.” To Attell, the Insomniac show is more of a cross between “Girls Gone Wild” and “Cops”.

After four seasons of “Insomniac,” Attell taped several hour-long “Insomniac” specials overseas in Japan, Germany, England and Brazil. Once back in the states, he headed out on a thirty-five city theatre tour ending in Vegas, where he hosted a two-hour special for Comedy Central featuring Sean Rouse, Greg Geraldo and Dane Cook, some of the biggest comics in the country.
