With MIKE MURATORE (Loco Comedy Slam), PAULA BEL (Last Comic Standing, VH1), THAI RIVERA (Comedy Central, Logo) and FELICIA MICHAELS (MTV, Comedy Central)
Mike Muratore: Mike Muratore has earned the moniker of "The Serial Killer of Comedy" with his brand of raw, in-your-face, no holds barred comedy. His act has been honed in the worst venues possible for comedy over the past 15 years. Playing terrible venues has turned Mike into one of the best comedians performing today. Will you be offended? Yes. Will you be scared? Probably. Will you laugh? Definitely.
Recently seen performing on TBS Weekend Extra, the Comedy Time Network, Loco Comedy Slam, and even making an appearance on Blind Date, Mike Muratore is always fascinating to watch. Mike headlines shows regularly throughout the country, and when not on the road, you can often find Mike performing at any of the major Southern California clubs, including:
The Comedy Store
The Laugh Factory
The Improv (Hollywood, Brea, Irvine, and Ontario)
The Ice House
You can often hear Mike featured on Raw Dog Comedy on Sirius, and he hosted a show on National Lampoon Radio on XM. His new comedy CD Don't You Be Afraid is now available through Amazon, iTunes, and all major online retailers, and his DVD of the same name will be available in the first quarter of 2012.
When not performing comedy, Mike teaches martial arts, having studied with Jerry Poteet in the art of Jeet Kune Do, as well as being highly trained in Wing Chun and Ketsugo Jujutsu. Mike teaches practical, real-world applications of martial arts techniques, which was put to use in the pilot of a TV show he created and hosted entitled 4 Seconds.
Paula’s performances are hysterically dark... Her voice and delivery are undeniably strong and crass, not your average female or comic. It’s the unexpected truths along with her delivery that are hilarious. You might’ve seen her on “Last Comic Standing” giving hell to the judges or her recent comedic appearances on Nick@Nite and TV Guide network bashing pregnant teens and reality shows. Not one adverse to writing or performing “blue comedy” she’s appeared on Showtime’s Full Frontal Comedy and HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival. Paula’s talented stand-up delivery had her headlining on the 2012 “Just for Laughs” Montreal Festival Nasty Show as well as the off-season “clean” tours throughout Canada. As a successful crossover act, Paula has recently taped BET 2013. Her numerous credits also include 'The View" and "Comics Unleashed."
Only six years into her stand-up career, she performed on “The Tonight Show.” Headlining in clubs across the country, Paula’s numerous television appearances and writing style make her one of the most unique female comics performing today.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
