A little about
Geoff Keith began performing stand up comedy at the end of 2003. Since then he
has been making a name for himself and audiences and industry have both been taking notice. After Keith's first time
on stage he walked off and heard an audience member saying, "remember that kid's name."
He spent his first
two years traveling all over Southern California every night driving over 100 miles per night just to get stage time.
He performed at AA meetings, restaurants, swap meets, nudist colonies, bars, clubs, etc. Whether there were two people
or 200 people he would make the drive.
Soon he began traveling to other states such as Oregon, Washington, Montana,
Idaho, and Nevada for gigs. The drives did not get any shorter going from state to state each day.
2006 he got an opportunity to work a week at the Sacramento Punchline Comedy Club with Pablo Francisco. Francisco immediately
brought Keith on the road with him for the remainder of the year giving Keith tons of experience working in front of packed
crowds at the top clubs in the country. Francisco also included Keith in his one hour Comedy Central special "Pablo
Francisco's: Ouch!" which aired in 2006. Since then Keith has appeared on Playboy TV's "Night Calls," Comedy
Central's "Live at Gotham," CBS's "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," ABC's "Comic's Unleashed
with Byron Allen," HBO's "Down and Dirty with Jim Norton," BET's "One Mic Stand," E! Channel's "Chelsea
Lately," and some others. He also was asked to perform at the Vancouver Comedy Festival in 2006 and the Just for Laughs
Festival in Montreal, Quebec in 2007.
On the acting front Keith was featured in "Coach Carter" and
"Even Money" and has appeared in two national commercials. Along with those accomplishments, he had a development
deal with Turner Broadcasting to create funny webisodes for their internet site SuperDeluxe.com. Keith also filmed a secret
project for Ashton Kutcher which included funny short videos where he was the star. Kutcher directed four of the videos and
Keith improvised the rest himself with Kutcher's approval.
Keith most recently finished shooting two seasons
as one of the stars of MTV's "Disaster Date" with memorable characters such as "Mayhem the Wrestler,"
the "Homeless Guy," "Mr. Romance," and many more.
Currently, Keith is touring the country performing
at colleges and comedy clubs alike.

of who and what he is his disarming style and easy going delivery will put you at ease and there is no doubt that by the end
of his set you will understand that Thai is comic who happens to be gay and not a gay comic, or as he would put it “a
comic who happens to be a fag and not a fag comic.”
Thai’s comedy has not only
taken him across this country but as far away as Austraiia and Thule Greenland where he performed for our troops.

A little about
Kevin Shea was originally born in Seoul,
Korea, and in January of 1981, he was adopted and sent to America to live with a middle class Irish family in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
He is the son of James and Madalyn Shea, parents of five children, two white chicks, two Korean boys, and one Korean girl.
Both parents were middle class. James was a Korean War vet and a decorated police officer, and Madalyn was a factory worker.
His parents' personalities were spitted images of Archie and Edith Bunker. It was as if All in the Family was combined
with Different Strokes.
Being from a very middle class family, Shea was the first to attend college. After
graduating from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Shea was curious to explore the rest of the country, so he moved to
San Francisco in 2000. There he would discover stand up.
After moving to San Francisco, Shea started a career
in the internet industry which lasted a whole year. In 2002, he was laid off and was convinced by a friend to go to an open
mic. Influenced by Eddie Murphy Raw, Shea decided to go to the open mic dressed in a purple leather jumpsuit, not a
good idea. His first set was not very good.
Not trying to become the typical Asian comic, Shea strayed away from
Korean accents based on their mothers', plus, his mom is a honkey. He concentrated on developing his own style which has said
to be very laid back and fresh. With his unique style and jokes, he caught the eyes of Hollywood and was invited to the prestigious
Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.
Shea has numerous television appearances which include
Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and most recently, HBO's Down and Dirty with Jim Norton.
He is currently living in Los Angeles.

At the age of 13, he went to McCormick Jr. high school, where he began to make people laugh. He also excelled at
basketball and water fights. Brandt was voted Class Clown in ninth grade; he has a picture proving this claim in a yearbook
on a shelf in his mother’s garage, if you don’t believe him.
Girls still could not stand him.
age of 16, Brandt went to high school at Central High, where he was a two-sport star, playing basketball and soccer. He was
often compared to Bo Jackson because he liked to wear Nikes and Umbro shorts. He was once again voted Class Clown because
he “…knew people that could make that sort of thing happen.”
At the age of 19, Brandt entered a junior
college in Wyoming. After about a month he dropped out.
At 20, he went to junior college again, but proceeded to drop
out after one month. AGAIN.
At 21, he decided to give it the “Old College Try” once more, this time in Arizona.
However, as usual, he dropped out. (This go-round lasted seven whole months.)
College girls didn’t really like
Once he turned 22, Brandt finally came to the conclusion that secondary education was not for him, and he
decided to move to Las Vegas with hopes of getting a job as a pirate at Treasure Island. Unfortunately, after his first day
on the job, Brandt realized that he was allergic to parrots — and 9-to-5 employment — thus forcing him to retire
from Pirate Life forever. He began doing stand-up in the Las Vegas open-mic scene and quickly became a crowd favorite all
over town. Brandt is also much-loved among other comedians, partly because he always buys them beer, but mostly because he
is a loyal and encouraging friend.
After two years of comedy in Las Vegas he began to travel the country, performing
all across the 50 states. He has since returned to Las Vegas and founded the legendary Backyard Comedy Show. In the Backyard
Show, Brandt created an independent, grass-roots, censor- and clique-free forum for comics to do what they love to do, which
is perform, without having to deal with the confines of typical Vegas-casino red tape. Some of America’s funniest stand-up
comedians have come to town to perform with Brandt.
That’s where the story begins… You will be hearing
a lot more from Brandt Tobler in the near future.

On stage he’s a force of nature, pacing the
stage like a cyclone of funny as he questions authority and the conventions of our society one moment, then earnestly expresses
his affinity for the bizarre the next. His comedy has no limits – its whatever he’s thinking about, and that’s
usually what everyone else is thinking about, even though sometimes we don’t like to admit to it. “I like to think of myself as the little voice in everyone’s head, except I have a microphone
and I’m funnier,” Sam says.

Marc unknowingly began his comedy career in December 1996 while serving in San Diego,
CA as a recruiter for the U.S. Air Force. His sense of humor was discovered by accident, while giving a
presentation to a class of inattentive high school students on the benefits of a military career. Realizing
his presentation was less than inspirational he decided to tell stories about his days in high school and compare them with
the students in the room. Not exactly inspiring them to “Aim High”, but it got their attention.
He left that day learning that if you make them laugh, you’ll keep their attention. The comedian
was taking shape. He created a humorous presentation combining embellished stories about his Prom gone
wrong to his First Job. He seamlessly tied the benefits of the Air Force while conveying how intrinsically
the Air Force changed his life and gave several scenarios as to how it could change theirs. His presentations
were a huge success and he was requested by teachers and administrators to speak to students in assemblies as well as the
classroom. As a result Marc was the Air Forces’ Top Recruiter for 3 consecutive years.
The following summer Marc tested his comedy skills by entering the Gold Coast Comedy competition in 1998.
Armed with 1 joke the “Adoption Story” and material from his class presentation, he took 3rd
place. Continuing to work on material at local open mic nights, he decided to enter the Bay Area Black
Comedy competition the following. He submitted a VHS tape of a joke called “Checking Account”
which got him into the competition, but not out of the first round. However his performance caught the
attention of comedy icons Michael Williams and Robert Sumner whose relationship proved instrumental in landing a spot on BET’s
Comic View. This experience proved invaluable and spurred Marc on to pursue is comedy career even though
the demands of his Military Career made road work difficult to obtain because of scheduling constraints. Still
Marc remained steadfast in pursuit of his new found passion.
Over the past Decade Marc, who prefers to work predominately
clean has performed with several notable comedians to include: Jim Gaffigan, Pablo Francisco, Kathleen
Madigan, Kevin James, Steve Harvey, Sheryl Underwood, Bobby Collins, Robert Shimmel and many others. According
to Marc, “The journey towards comedic success has been slow and arduous, but I wouldn’t change a thing.”
His clever insight and hilarious depiction of everyday life make Marc a favorite in corporate circles and comedy clubs
throughout the country.

Q&A with our headliners...
Getting to Know Your Headliner: The Greg Wilson
by Ali Lerman 10/27/13
There are many shows to see while you are in Las Vegas but when you
are in need of a good laugh, there is nowhere better to go than LA Comedy Club located inside Bally’s. This
week’s headliner is The Greg Wilson and we asked him a few questions so you can get familiar with the man behind the
jokes before you come out to see him.
When: October 29th- November 3rd
Q: Since you’ll be in Vegas for Halloween,
do you have plans to dress up and hit the town?
I am dressing up! I will be the tooth fairy with a tutu, tights, and wings. I’m committing to the whole thing! My girlfriend
is also coming out and she will be the tooth.
Wow. You should definitely wear that on stage one night! So how exactly did the “The” come into play with your
A: Well, the “The” thing was really out of a necessity
because there is a well-known magician named Greg Wilson. So it was really just about separating because he had the website
and everything like that under Greg Wilson. I always felt like he should have been “The Amazing Greg Wilson” or
something like that. Anyway, at the time though, nobody had done anything like that in stand-up and people
thought adding the “The” was the most arrogant thing ever. Now with Twitter and stuff like that, everyone is adding
a “the” to separate themselves and I feel like I kind of really launched that! [Laughs.]
Q: Aside from stand-up, you’re also great on-air. How did you
hook up with Angie Everhart for your podcast, "Hot n Heavy?"
A: It’s interesting because in L.A., everybody knows somebody. I happen to be very good friends with
a gal who’s a publicist, and she happens to be best friends with Angie Everhart. One night Angie was all bummed out
and her friend was like, have you ever seen The Greg Wilson perform? It turned out that she had never even been to a comedy
club so they came out to see me. She wasn’t so much a super fan of stand-up comedy but she loved what I did because
I’m kind of insane, out of control, and wild. She called me up after and left me a message saying she wanted to do something
with me. Then we ended up at our friend Super Bowl party and Angie and I wound up in a room making really funny comments,
talking crap, and being snarky for the entire length of the game. She was like, what can we do with this? I suggested a podcast
and that’s really how it started!
It’s so cool that you’re on Breal.TV also. It must be a blast working with B-Real!
A: Oh yeah it is! I mean, B-Real is a legend in hip-hop and he is still so relevant
and vital! We were on two different networks before Breal.TV. My friend was telling B-Real that she has a buddy with a show
and B-Real was like, bring him on! We had a wild time and it was so much fun. I told him that I had this other show with Angie
Everhart and since B-Real was a big 90’s star and Angie was a big 90’s star, he immediately was excited. Breal.TV
had no show with a really hot female host and they had no comedy show so, B-Real thought it would be great and that is how
we wound up over there. It just worked out really terrific.
Q: Give folks the scoop on what they can expect when they come see you at the LA Comedy Club.
A: It’s all gonzo style because for me, it’s not a scripted act. There
is a script and I can use it, but every show is different. In every show something is going to happen that isn’t going
to happen in another show and if you’re part of the audience, you’re part of the show! That I think is what makes
my comedy show different than a lot of the other comic’s shows. I’m looking for something unique, wild, and different
to happen. It’ll be something that you can’t recreate and that will have you talking about it forever because
it was wild and momentary. I always look for opportunities to get out into the audience and to get the audience on stage and
make them part of the experience, but in a way that they can’t control! [Laughs.]
