Description: 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 Bel: 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.
Thai Rivera: Thai Rivera will make you uncomfortable in the best way possible. His politically incorrect style of humor has taken the comedy world by storm. Having moved from Arizona to LA Thai quickly became a fixture and force on the comedy scene. After becoming a favorite and regular at clubs such as the Hollywood Improv and World Famous Laugh Factory he started to travel across the country in the most unlikely of places, redneck bars. He has performed with some of the biggest name's in the world of stand up, some of you may recognize him from the Jo Koy Comedy Tour, he has also been featured on Comedy Central's Live At Gotham and The Logo Network's One Night Stand up. While Thai is very proud 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 out troops.
