Host/MC Bobbie Oliver THE NASHVILLE NETWORK, HOLLYWOOD HAHA FEST, NPR, LAS VEGAS RIVIERA , ICE HOUSE COMEDY CLUB
Bobbie Oliver is one of Los Angeles´ funniest comics, but she had to come a long way to get here. Born Barbara "Bobbie" Evans in Covington, GA, a small town outside Atlanta whose chief claim to fame was being used for location shooting for The Dukes of Hazard TV series, Bobbie grew up in a two-bedroom, one-bathroom trailer inhabited by a family of seven. Bobbie found escape in staying up late with her father to watch The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, which became an inspiration to her. In 1987, while at LaGrange College on a Theatre scholarship, Bobbie began doing standup. She was hooked! After graduating in 1990, she went on the road for 8 years based out of Athens, GA. Bobbie then moved to Los Angeles in 1998 with her writer husband Chris, and still performs in comedy clubs and colleges all over the country. WEBSITE | MYSPACE | BOOK
Comedian Klift Karaffa THE ICE HOUSE, THE COMEDY STORE, THE ANNOYANCE THEATRE, THE SECOND CITY,
Born on Planet Earth and raised by wolves (sisters), Klift's comedy was forged in the rugged suburbs of Chicago where he was known as "that kid" and "that guy over there". After attending the Second City Conservatory and performing at the Annoyance Theatre in Chicago, Klift took himself to Los Angeles to be able to golf year around and not have to talk to anyone ever. After a long time of doing that, Klift decided to start telling his jokes in other places than in front of his mirror. Coming up Klift can be seen in his car, and on most afternoons at his job. Here are some of the excited reactions people have to Klift´s act:
"He's tall...and kind of scares me, but funny" - guy who saw Klift.
"He´s not funny." - Klift´s sister who hates him.
"I don´t speak English." – Some guy BOOK
Comedian Mary Becquet THE ICE HOUSE MAIN ROOM, THE ICE HOUSE ANNEX, COMEDY STORE MAIN ROOM, COMEDY STORE BELLY ROOM,
Mary Becquet is an unsophisticated woman living in a slick and sophisticated world. Bored with her life as a finance executive in the entertainment industry, this confident career woman from rural Texas began writing jokes in her day planner.
Whether offering up a fish-out-of-water view of the hypocrisy and shallow self-absorption of the corporate world, skewering the daily aggravation of married life, or telling stories about her own embarrassing misadventures around the globe, Mary Becquet´s skewed observations and zany worldview make for great comedy.
