March 1-2 – Johnny Watson

From Saturday Night Live, Good Morning America
Also featuring Chipps Cooney & Kevin Dombrowski

Johnny Watson is a nationally headlining comic whose star is on the rise. He’s earning a reputation as clean and clever with the charm of “the boy next door”. Except that you wouldn’t want to be his neighbor growing up… Watson, a kid from a dysfunctional home lived in some of New Jersey’s seedier neighborhoods with his two brothers and two sisters. He learned to use his razor sharp wit to survive. “I was the poor kid on free lunch who always got my balls busted so since I couldn’t really fight, I had to be funny.” He started drinking when he was five years old and kept on going until high school, (“I was burned out from drinking by the time I got into high school, so I became the designated driver before they had designated drivers,” he says). After briefly attending college in California, Johnny joined the Navy. Once he got out, he turned to comedy as a full-time profession (his grandmother implored him to become a comedian because “you can’t do anything else right”) And so… a comedy career was born. Since then Johnny has taken life’s lemons and turned them into lemonade which he freely shares with his fans! And coast to coast, They Love It! You’ve seen Johnny at some of the biggest Comedy Clubs in the country and he has also been seen on TV, (most notably Saturday Night Live and Good Morning America and in a host of independent films and theater productions. Now you can see him perform, live, at The Comedy Cove this Saturday Night.

Coleman Green is the next big thing to come out of Philadelphia…..and we mean BIG! Pound for pound he’s one of the funniest comics to recently emerge from the “City of Brotherly Love”. You may recognize Coleman from his “io” TV Commercials (yes that’s him in the pink leotard). Cole offers his own unique and hilarious perspective on family life, race relations and the absurdity of daily life, in his high energy show! Coleman has a gift for making audiences laugh and luckily for us he’s willing to share it!!

March 22 – Brian Sheil

From Last Comic Standing, MTV, Comedy Central
Also featuring Laura Hayden & Brett Druck
You will remember, tell your friends, and take them to see “The Brian Sheil Show”. A non-stop, laughter packed cavalcade of comedy; complete with audience participation, musical parodies, impressions, and stand up comedy. He is the “One-man Entourage of Entertainment”.

The show must go on, and it does. Between his many TV appearances (NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, MTV) or hosting star-studded red carpet events. Brian is busy producing and hosting “West Coast Comedy” for National Lampoon and Time Warner On Demand. Brian is also the driving force for “The New Rascals Comedy Hour”, on XM Satellite Radio, and an also be seen on Microsoft MSN video downloads, Windows Media Entertainment page, TV NET, Smart Video Mobile Television.  Brian is in great demand because his show appeals to such a diverse audience. He takes the stage with UN-PARALLED ENERGY!!! Rapid-fire intensity, you’ll feel like you’ve seen four shows in one! A Comedy Show, a Music Show, an Improv Show, and you’ll be part of the SHOW!!!  THERE IS SOMETHING IN THIS SHOW FOR EVERYONE!  His stand-up will have your cheeks aching as you sing along to the hysterical song parodies of today’s most “vocally challenged” superstars. Maroon 5, The Killers, Macy Gray, Blink 182, and Shaggy would all do well in speech therapy class, but with Sylvester Stallon as the teacher, no one will pass. Garth Brooks sings with his long lost cousin, Forest Gump. The boulevard of broken dreams becomes the Big K-mart of one hit wonders. Dave Matthews and the Violent Femms get Ricky Martin a job “Working El Pollo Loco”. Robert Downey Jr. checks into rehab, only to find Elvis as his sponsor. Then the Bee-Gees and the Village Person circumcise Neal Diamond…you have to be there.

March 23 – Joseph Anthony

From The View, Last Comic Standing
Also featuring Laura Hayden & Brett Druck
Joseph’s father was an Italian Immigrant, who entered the United States just after WWII and began his career as a Longshoreman at the age of 17. He quickly climbed up the management ladder. His mother was born in Brooklyn, NY and raised Joseph on: delicious dishes, overbearing love, inherent O.C.D. … And incidentally, had a mean right hook – for someone who stood only 4’ 11!”  Surprisingly, being raised (in part) by his five older sisters who frequently opened Joseph’s mind up to such things as: how to use a hot curling hair kit, cleaning the crevices of wood furniture, and being a constant (mini) Hustle practice partner, all with the absence of any brothers and a father determined to figure out the fine art of betting, he (Joseph) was no stranger to the ways of the streets, but also enjoyed a quiet retreat to read and write at a very young age. The results you say? He can hold court with both Harvard and Sing Sing prison alumni, just the same. Yet despite his upbringing, he belongs to no one particular group, class, click, or innate stereotypes, as it were. In the world of entertainment, he’s simply referred to quite often as: VERSATILE – TALENTED – FUNNY – SMART!  Joseph studied writing style and screen writing at the New School for Social Research, in New York City. He learned the basics of filmmaking at the College of Staten Island, NY. He studied the Meisner technique of acting under Joanna Beckson (Ray Romano’s teacher), herself a student of the famed Actors Studio.
In January of 1990, he stepped onstage at PIPS Comedy Club in Brooklyn, New York. He immediately found the avenue for all three of his artistic passions – writing, acting and stand up comedy. Today, Joseph is a frequently requested performer/headliner at the most well known comedy clubs and countless venues in the Northeast and around the country.
