Chris Simpson

Chris Simpson has been a professional comedian for over 20 years, delighting audiences with his unique take on the everyday. His appearances on Comedy Central, Comics Unleashed, and NBC's Superstore have made him one of the top acts in the 2022 comedy world. He regularly tours the country, headlining clubs and colleges alike.

Fritz Coleman

Fritz Coleman is a retired weathercaster who worked for NBC Channel 4 in Los Angeles, California, from 1982 to 2020. A long-time stand-up comic who regards Bob Hope and Johnny Carson as heroes, Fritz has done stand-up for decades at local comedy clubs. Fritz has appeared several times on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson and Jimmy Fallon. In addition, he had several series and specials that aired on NBC4, including "What a Week," "It's Fritz," "Fritz and Friends," and "The Perils of Parenting." He earned four Los Angeles Area Emmy Awards for his work.

Andre Kelley

Andre Kelley is a towering figure in the comedy world. Well, actually, he's just really tall--6'2" to be exact. But what he lacks in height, he makes up for in presence and talent. Andre has been featured on CBS, ABC, VH1, Comedy Central, and Showtime. He's also been seen on Byron Allen's Comics Unleashed and Comedy TV.

Andre Kelly is known for his work on Phunny Business: A Black Comedy (2011), Wisecrack (2005) and Comics Unleashed (2006).

Rudy Moreno

Rudy Moreno was born and raised in the tight-knit community of Lincoln Heights, a suburb of Los Angeles. Rudy began his career at 13 in garage bands with friends in his neighborhood. He attended Lincoln High School and graduated at 16 years old.

Rudy went on to broadcasting school with a dream to work in radio. After several audition tapes, he received a call from a station in Santa Maria, California, where he worked the weekend shift. Rudy continued to pursue his dream of broadcasting with stints in Santa Paula and then as an intern at LA radio station KLOS.

Rudy then worked in nightclubs as a DJ and did the typical DJ work at parties, social gatherings, and weddings. Eventually, Rudy got married and decided to do the 9 to 5 thing, and in 1991 was approached by band leader Rudy Salas of the famed rock group Tierra. "He said that I was so funny that I should be a comedian, and if I wanted to, he would help me and let me open for the band," which they did, and after that, it just snowballed.

By the summer of 1991, Rudy was approached by TV Producer Jeff Valdez, who booked Rudy for his first TV appearance on Comedy Compadres. Since then, Rudy has appeared on over 40 television shows in his current career, including Jimmy Kimmell, Criminal Minds, Everybody Loves Raymond, Arrested Development, and shows on NBC, CBS, ABC, Starz, HBO, and Showtime.

Besides TV, Rudy continues to open concerts for stars like Smokey Robinson, Black Eyed Peas, Bobby Caldwell, Los Lobos, Natalie Cole, and many more.

Rudy has been a National Headlining Comedian for over 30 years with shows in Las Vegas, New York, and Los Angeles and has worked at all of the A-List Comedy Clubs across the country. He has the longest-running show in Los Angles at the Ice House in Pasadena, spanning 20 consecutive years.

Rudy is also an accomplished guitar player and has a working classic rock band.

Rudy and his family are the creators of Komics for Kids, an annual fundraising event to help inner-city children.

So whether it be broadcasting on the radio, doing stand-up, acting on TV or theater, or just rocking out with his band, Rudy will entertain you. Otherwise, he'll have to go back to that boring job as a bikini model.
