March 4-5 – Mike Storck


From Sirius XM, Boston Comedy Festival, Laughing Skull
Also Featuring  Sharon Simon, Matt Jenkins and guest Dean Gemmell

Rarely taking things at face value, even the most ordinary of topics are spun into new directions that only his creatively warped mind could envision. Mike always keeps audiences on their toes by being about as predictable as a car thief whose options are running out. He is the comedic wheelman, taking audiences on a conceptual joyride fueled by an overactive imagination. Along the way, they find humor on every corner, and taboos thrown into a ditch like a drifter with no money for gas.

Mike Storck started his stand up comedy career in 1998, in his hometown of Baltimore, at an open mike with a broken microphone and a frayed notepad. His act developed at an incredible rate, and within the first few months he quickly started catching the eyes and ears of club owners and comics in the stand up circuit. Since then he has honed his skill for working with an audience and generating tons of fresh original A-list material.

After moving to New York City, he was quickly recognized as a comedic talent to be reckoned with, making a name for himself in the circuit as a strong writer with the performance skills to match. Storck has performed at the Boston Comedy Festival, the Asheville Comedy Festival, the Prince Edward Island Festival, and the Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta, GA.

He was a contributing writer for “The Complete Idiotʼs Guide to Jokes” and the book “Kiss Your Butts Goodbye.” In 2007 he was the Mid-Atlantic winner of “HBOʼs Lucky 21” contest. He has been heard on the Nationally Syndicated “Bob and Tom” radio show, the Canadian radio show and podcast “Whatʼs So Funny” and is a regularly featured comic on XM Satellite Radio.Velocity Magazine called him, “…funnier than a rubber crucifix.” The Ottawa Comedy Resource stated, “…Mike tore the room apart with stunningly good, original and smart stuff. He may very well be the best act on the “alternative” circuit…” and “…delivered cleanly without pretense or exaggerated character, heʼs just being himself, if itʼs rehearsed it doesnʼt show.” Sén magazine said, “… Storck had my guts spilling out of my splitting sides…”

Mike continues to work the comedy club circuit across the United States and Canada, continually writing and performing new material.

March 11-12 – Mick Thomas


From Gotham Live & The Borgata
Also Featuring  Ed McGonigal, and Rob Epple

“Mick” is a derogatory term for Irish American immigrants. Of that lot, MICK THOMAS is the funniest. Born and raised in Wexford, Ireland, it wasn’t until moving to New York that Mick’s stand-up comedy career was born. A natural performer and insightful writer, in a few short years Mick has blown away one club owner after the next with his honest and genuinely original takes on American society and life as a young and dedicated family man.

March 18-19 – Kyle Grooms


From Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, The Chappelle Show
Also Featuring Roberta Rockwell and

With a long list of notable accomplishments as an actor, writer and comic, he’s proven to be one of the industry’s must-see comics on the scene. With a uniqueness all to himself, Grooms delivers an honest and intelligent view of the world, while giving an intimate look into his life experiences growing up in the American melting pot. Throughout his career, he has appeared in his own hysterical half-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central, while also making multiple appearances on VH1, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and famed sketch comedy show, “Chappelle’s Show.” Among his many accomplishments, his first comedy CD, “The Legend of the Jersey Devil,” was named one of iTunes’ Top 100 Comedy CD’s of 2009.
A regular on the New York comedy scene, Grooms has performed at several top clubs, including Caroline’s, Comic Strip, Comedy Cellar and Gotham. He has been featured on several television, radio and internet broadcasts, such as P-Diddy’s “Bad Boys of Comedy,” Jamie Foxx’s “Laffapalooza,” “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” “The Byron Allen Show,” “BET Comic View,” and “Red Carpet Fashion.” Having even brought his act overseas, he performed at the “Le Grande Journal” in France and has made several appearances in national TV ad campaigns for companies including T-Mobile, Sears, Career Builders and Holiday Inn Express. Grooms continues to grow as a stand-up comedian, writer and actor, and can currently be seen performing worldwide.

March 25-26 – Joseph Anthony


From Last Comic Standing , The View, Conan O’Brian, The Today Show
Also Featuring Sean Morton and Joanne Filan

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
