Paul Virzi is a stand up comedian and many of the nation’s top comedy clubs have called him one of the strongest on the rise! His debut comedy album Night At The Stand was #1 on iTunes and reached #4 on Billboards Top 100. He’s appeared on TruTV’s Comedy Knockout, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, The NFL Network’s Good Morning Football, and written for the ESPN ESPY Awards. Paul has made numerous appearances at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and performed at the SXSW Festival in Austin, TX. 

 

Paul has toured with Bill Burr in some of the country’s most iconic theaters including, Madison Square Garden, The Chicago Theatre and Carnegie Hall. Every week you can hear him host his very popular podcast The Virzi Effect.

 

Paul grew up in the suburbs, outside of New York City. He loves his family, cigars and having pointless sports arguments with his friends. He never fails in keeping the laughs coming and making the audience feel comfortable with his hard hitting personal approach. He is fun to watch and has a stage presence that is second to none.

Nelson began doing stand-up in comedy clubs while a theater student at Nassau Community College.  Nelson specializes in rubber-faced comedy characters. His most popular originals include Jiffy Jeff, a punch drunk prizefighter with a Gym in NYC; Eppy Epperman. Bob Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield’s opening act for eight years of Mr.Dangerfield’s career.  Bob was featured in two of Rodney’s HBO stand-up comedy showcases, alongside Jerry Seinfeld, Rosanne Barr, Rita Rudner and Bob Saget. That led to two HBO specials starring Bob Nelson, including “Nelson Schmelson”.  Bob considers Rodney his ‘Comedy Godfather’. Nelson was also in a comedy group called “The Identical Triplets” with Eddie Murphy and Rob Bartlett. Nelson has appeared several times on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and various other talk
shows, such as David Letterman.  While he formerly incorporated profanity into his act, Nelson now works clean. He cites a meeting with Red Skelton, in which Skelton convinced him to stop using swear words. Since that meeting, Nelson claims he hasn’t sworn while performing. Bob won an Emmy Award in Philadelphia for a children’s show he wrote and starred in, called “Double Muppet Hold the Onions”.  He also had supporting roles in Nora Ephron’s directorial film debut This is My Life with Julie Kavner and Ivan Reitman’s Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bob also starred in the Zucker Brothers films Airplane!, The Naked Gun, and Brain Donors, the 1992 update of the Marx Brothers’ comedy A Night at the Opera. In the latter film, Nelson plays what would have been the Harpo Marx part.
