July 6-7 – Eddie Clark


From ESPN, Law & Order, Nick at Nite
Also featuring Susan Golden and Mike Warsaw

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 13-14 – Pat Dixon


From The New York City Crime Report,VH1,Compound Media
Also Featuring Johnny Hollywood and Ty Rainey

Pat Dixon is an experienced standup who has been seen in his own half hour special (ComedyCentral), as a cast member on Vh1’s Best Week Ever and The Late, Late Show (CBS). Earlier this year, Dixon appeared on Comedy Central’s This Is Not Happening, on which he found the comedy in the story of an ex-girlfriend who was arrested (and later convicted) for his attempted murder after following him to an IHOP restaurant with a gun and ambushing him in the parking lot.  Dixon is also the host of The New York City Crime Report, a true crime podcast which has featured comedy based on tabloid crime stories from the NY Post since 2011. He also hosts 2 shows on Anthony Cumia’s Compound Media (Crime Report and TRUMP) which broadcast LIVE each week.

Pat Dixon’s style is interactive and fun, and while his stand-up is far from typical, his show can be enjoyed and appreciated by any kind of person. His stuff about his wives (current and past) and casual observations about relationships make this show perfect for couples – whether it’s a first date or a 50th anniversary – but families, loners, office parties and bachelorettes are all encouraged to come and laugh, because there’s something for everybody.

Some of his over-the-top observations and surprising punchlines would qualify for an R-rating, but his ease on stage and obvious respect for the audience take the edge off. He’s just a funny guy, and what he does is appreciated by comedy nerds, casual fans and even people who don’t tend to like stand-up comedy at all.
He’s performed in theaters, comedy clubs and bars in (almost) every state and earned a reputation as “a rare comedian who can say everything that’s on his mind without pissing everybody off.”

 

July 20-21 – Shuli Egar


From the Howard Stern Show, Sirius XM, The Killers of Comedy Tour
Also Featuring Stacy Kendro and Monty Mason

SHULI EGAR truly knows that if you’re going to make it in comedy, you’ve got to hustle. His start in
stand up began with him bombing every night in nearly empty casinos along the Las Vegas Strip.
But in 2002 Shuli’s luck would change. That’s when he met the one and only Howard Stern.
SHULI’s love for The Howard Stern Show started in middle school. He moved to Las Vegas from
Los Angeles to start his stand-up career and was a frequent caller to the Stern Show. After seven
years of weekly calls, he was invited to play a round of blackjack with Stern and his gang while the
show was in Las Vegas. As it happened, he won more than just money gambling at the table that
day. Despite having no journalism experience, Shuli was brought on as a correspondent for the
Howard 100 News team and has been reporting on all things Howard ever since.

In addition to his work on the Stern Show, Shuli co-hosts The Jay Thomas Show, the Dr. Harry Fisch
Show on Sirius XM, and he has contributed to the Scott Ferrall Show and Miserable Men.
SHULI has toured the country as part of “The Killers of Comedy “ and “Ronnie’s Block Party”, and he
regularly performs stand-up in clubs all across the U.S
