About Kevin Brennan:
Known for his no holds barred style, Kevin Brennan is one of the top standup comedians in the country. Brennan started his comedy career in Chicago but soon relocated to New York City to pursue his dream of being on the “Late Show with David Letterman.” He shined on his first Letterman appearance which then led to subsequent memorable appearances on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and “Last Call with Carson Daly”. Kevin was voted “Best Comedian” at the 2005 Aspen Comedy Festival, which led to his own HBO half‐ hour comedy special. A former writer/performer on “Saturday Night Live,” Kevin taped a pilot for NBC called “Number One Son” about growing up in a big Irish‐Catholic family. Most recently, Kevin has written for Comedy Central’s “Sports Show with Norm Macdonald” as well as the “Latin Grammys” hosted by George Lopez. He is a sought out guest on many comedy podcasts such as Breuer Unleashed, on Sirius Satellite Radio. Kevin’s comedy CD entitled, “I Said It”, has garnered rave reviews and will keep audiences laughing for years to come. Currently based in New York but ever bi‐coastal, Kevin Brennan continues to impress as a performer and writer.
About Eleanor Kerrigan:
Eleanor is the latest in a long line of historically funny women who cut their teeth at the World Famous Comedy Store. Starting out as a waitress there, Eleanor learned the ropes of comedy, all the while making the best comics in the country laugh, in the kitchen of the club. It would take several years and lots of pushing from one of her biggest fans, Andrew Dice Clay, to finally get her to take her comedic talents to the stage. After co-starring with him in “Dice Undisputed”, Dice invited Eleanor to go on the road with him to promote the show. “I’m an actress not a stand up!” she replied. After seeing her one woman show, Andrew would no longer take no for an answer. “You’re hysterical and everyone should know that!” he said, and Eleanor’s been performing stand up in clubs and theaters around the country ever since.
About The Reverend Bob Levy:
Levy was not much of a comedy fan until he started listening to The Howard Stern Show in 1990, for which he started to send jokes and song parodies that he had written. Levy then started to attend open mic nights hosted by the show’s writer, Jackie Martling. Levy recalled that he was unpaid for the first year of doing stand-up. Later on, Martling gave Levy the nickname “The Reverend”; Levy recalled: “Because I was a filthy fuckin’ pig, and he wanted to call me the opposite of what I was doing onstage”.
