July 1-2 – Eddie Clark

From ESPN, Nick at Nite, Law & Order, NASCAR
Also featuring Chipps Cooney and Karen Krentz

February 1979. While attending Mercy college in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. Eddie was approached by members of the student government organization and asked to m.c. a talent show to be held at the school. All of the contestants were singers and Eddie’s job would be introducing the performers and entertaining the audience with comedy while the judges decided the winner of the talent show. After the last performer left the stage and the judges started to leave, Eddie asked the judges to return to there seats because, there was still one last contestant. Eddie then went on a 12-minute comedy rampage that ended with him winning 3rd place. It was then that Eddie knew what he wanted to do with his life.
In November of 1979 Eddie Clark and a friend walked into the Original Improvisation Comedy Club in New York City to audition for a regular spot at the club. Eddie got a chance to show the owner what he could do and despite his lack of experience, he thrilled everyone in the club that night…. Everyone…  except the owner. The club’s policy was that if the owner liked you she would talk to you. If she didn’t, the performer was to just walk by her without saying a word. As Eddie left the stage the owner looked away. Eddie walked outside with his friend and then suddenly turned around walked back into the club and whispered in the startled owner’s ear, “ Thanks for the opportunity to show the “PEOPLE” what I can do.” He has lived by that motto ever since. Eddie then left the club and never looked back. The New York Improv closed a few years later but Eddie is still going strong.
Old enough to remember the sixties yet young enough to enjoy the new millennium, Eddie Clark is still one of the hardest working comics on the circuit today. Eddie was born in Jamaica… QUEENS, NY and raised in the city of Mount Vernon, NY, where he developed his ability to induce laughter from total strangers. Eddie’s humor is a blend of personal experiences and everyday life. Eddie’s stand up has made him a favorite on morning radio shows around the country and has opened opportunities for him to help raise money and awareness for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure. Eddie appeared on Law & Order S.V.U. , the films “Blood Night” ( Currently available on DVD )”Camp” ( I.F.C.), “Salted Nuts” (featured at the 2006 “Sundance Film Festival” )   , ” The Flying Scissors.” , “and the Law & Order made for TV movie “Exiled” as well as several commercials & promo’s including, “TV Land Prime Movies, The Washington Post, OPTIMUM ONLINE, Major League Baseball, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Comcast Cable, Monster.Com, Nick jr. , National Geographic Channel, ADVANTA, care one credit, Quicken Loans, A&E “Cold Case Files,” Gothic Cabinet Craft, Red Lobster, Cablevision, Fox Sports and WCBS (New York channel 2). In 2003 Eddie appeared nationally on ESPN 2’s “Cold Pizza” and hosted two online shows at the U.S. Tennis Open for the U.S.T.A. and America Online. In 2004 Eddie Appeared on C.M.T. ( Country Music Television). The show (40 Greatest Done Me Wrong Songs) was one of the Top 5 Highest Rated Specials for C.M.T. in 2004! Eddie then went on to do two more specials for the network in 2005.  Eddie just finished working on a new project touting the advantages of natural gas which will be on your TV soon!

Eddie has expanded his comedy to Carnival Cruise Lines!

When describing Eddie’s style of entertainment one can only come to this conclusion…. Its just Eddie being Eddie!


July 8-9 – George Gallo

From The Jim Breuer Show, Comedy Central, MTV
Also featuring Terry McNeely & Kevin Dombrosky
George Gallo is one of those performers that keeps his audiences riveted because they don’t want to miss a thing.  Whether he is performing on stage, or directing / producing / acting in a video short, he is an entertainer to the very core. George began “performing” as early as the fourth grade, and says by the seventh grade even his teachers took notice.  One teacher even went so far as to take George around where he impersonated all of the teachers in the school – and kept them all laughing while he did it. He was in fact voted “Most Humorous” by his high school class, but it was his talent for mimicry that has evolved into an uncanny ability to reproduce an exact sound, voice, or character.

A child of the seventies and admitted science fiction freak, his influences include Cheech and Chong, Robins Williams, Eddie Murphy and Steven Spielberg movies.  His involvement as an extreme BMX bicyclist gave him the physical confidence to work in a high degree of physicality into his performances, and he soon began acting in, producing, and directing short segments for radio.  These “bits” led to video segments that have since been featured on NBC, Make Me Laff, FOX, and Comedy Central, to name a few.  Word of his talent for writing led to several segment writer gigs, as well as featured comic spots at some of NY’s most well-known comedy venues.

Gallo doesn’t stop there.  He says he likes to have a lot going on at once; whether it’s simple joke telling, chatting up the audience, or demonstrating his latest cast of characters (ask him about Henry, his newest character, or the post-plastic surgery woman face), Gallo delivers it all with an almost alarming level of energy.

A few of his standard bits that you don’t want to miss include the backwards record because it not only showcases his sound effect talent, but it’s so funny that it’s hard to tell which is more impressive – the sound replication or the humor. With more than 40 video shorts to his credit including the most recent “Downtown Taxi in NYC” and “Annoying Cell Phone Guy” ( George plays with the human condition like dangling yarn in front of a cat.  A native Long Islander, he has been performing across the tri-state area for more than 15 years.  His stints on 92.3 K-Rock, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, Short Attention Span Theatre, Evening at the Improv and as a segment writer make him one of the most diverse and sought-after entertainers in the industry.

George is very selective about his content and language, and feels responsible to create comedy that is funny without being offensive.  (Unless the offensive thing is really really funny
