Brad Tassell

Brad Tassell has been called the MOST FUN COMEDIAN TO WATCH since Robin Williams, he has 30+ years a professional full-time comedian, author, speaker, educator Brad Tassell has proven he is not only hilarious, but smart, kind, useful, and the perfect performer for any group, any place, any time. In 2022 his Drybar comedy special was released to massive acclaim and views. He has been seen on CMT, ESPN, MTV, PBS, and has been one of the top comedian on Carnival Cruise lines for nearly 20 years. He also had a hugely successful Las Vegas residency at the Rio Hotel and Casino next to Penn and Teller in a show called, "Comic Therapy." Brad uses his Master's degree in Behavioral Sciences to bring solution-based interventions, award-winning, and hilarious educational keynotes on bullying prevention to schools, educators, and workshops.

Steve Goodie

Steve Goodie is, in all modesty and candor, the genius of our age. Comedian, writer, singer, director and producer, Steve was a founding member of Monty Python and has written scripts for Sid Caesar, Woody Allen, Mahatma Gandhi, Matt Groening, and Queen Elizabeth (for which he was knighted in 1972 at the unprecedented age of six). The Beatles credit much of their fame to his early studio work, during which he developed their recording sound with his apprentice, George Martin. His film scores and theatre work need no introduction, and he became a household word with his ground-breaking recording of The Biggest Belch In The History Of Man. It is a tribute to his humility that, on the suggestion of his long-time fan and sometime paramour Liz Taylor, he entered the Federal Witness Protection Program and began a new career, "to level the playing field," as he put it, "for the other idiots trying to make it in Show Business."

Brian Atkinson

Brian Atkinson is a comedian an all-around nice guy, and a horrible person. His guy next door look gives way to surprising twists – like when he provided voices for PBS Kids and acted in a Lifetime Movie Network movie, as a serial killer, in the same studio, on the same day. His voice might be the first thing you notice, but his confidence, and engaging storytelling will keep you laughing. Brian Atkinson makes jokes, but only the finest artisan, hand-crafted, farm-to-table-saw jokes.
