Larry’s jokes come fast and furious! He hits every topic: stupid stereotypes; wacked out relatives; why Santa avoids Indian reservations. Without using shocking language he will have you in convulsions and tears. Some comics attack their audience but Larry engages his audience and takes them on a roller coaster comedy ride they’ll never forget. His unique point of view on multi-ethnic America has garnered numerous tv appearances and places him in great demand on the corporate circuit. His comical stories about his youth are hailed by the Los Angeles Times as, “Refreshing, funny and universal.” Omaha’s side-splitting jabs at every day life inspired the Las Vegas Sun to label him , “A very hip comic for the the new millennium.”
This show is a Fundraiser for the United American Indian Involvement.
Paige Wesley is a fun, confident, and assertive new voice in comedy. Originally from Dublin, California she found her calling when the kids started picking on the “chubby chick” and it seemed that the only comeback for those bullies was a few solid punchlines. After a brief stint at UCLA where she studied screenwriting, she decided she couldn’t stay away from Stand-Up Comedy. She has been seen on Today in LA, at the San Diego Pride Festival, and the Eagle Rock Comedy Festival. She was Burbank’s Funniest Female Finalist in 2016, and a Los Angeles’ March Comedy Madness Finalist 2013. @paigewesley

Comedian Brad Williams has lived a true comic Cinderella story. Born with Achondroplastic dwarfism, Brad would endure countless taunts and gawks from classmates and random people on the street. Instead of crying about it, Brad turned to humor. He discovered that by making jokes about his condition, he could make other people comfortable and get laughs in the process. Stand-up was a logical step for Brad and he began hitting the local open mic nights. One night at a Carlos Mencia show, Carlos asked Brad if he wanted to do time. After his set, Mencia decided to bring Brad on the road with him as his opening act. Brad has been touring with Carlos ever since, even making a few appearances on The Mind of Mencia. Brads ability to make humorous observations that make everyone comfortable with difference is winning over audiences and proving that anyone can overcome their shortcomings.
See Brad live in Burbank this weekend!
