Featured Performers:


Billy Garan began his career performing stand-up at Catch A Rising Star in New York City. He expanded his career by joining a comedy troupe called Funny Business which toured hundreds of colleges throughout the country.

Billy’s staggering list of impressions is demonstrated in his “Hollywood High” routine where he plays all the characters in a classroom of celebrity students, ranging from Truman Capote to Sylvester Stallone. He not only does the voices with superb accuracy, but also the mannerisms. Billy’s high energy and machine gun style delivery have defined him as a unique talent having made him a valuable opening act for Robert Klein, Jay Leno, and Jerry Seinfeld. He has produced, written and performed numerous radio commercials and has been seen doing comedy on NBC, Showtime and A&E.


Philadelphia may have been where Buddy Fitzpatrick was born, but it was in a Philadelphia Comedy Club where he came to life. And as any true Philiadelphian, he now lives in New Jersey.

Buddy’s stand-up made him a regular on Comedy Central with appearances on ABC and A&E.

Buddy can be seen in the Damon Wayans’ film, Harlem Aria, and in The Business of Strangers, starring Julia Stiles and Stockard Channing.

His television credits include HBO’s “Sopranos.” Buddy has written, produced and performed his biographical play “Sides” at various NYC theatres.


Chris Monty is one of New York’s busier comedians. Along with being a regular at New York’s best comedy clubs, Chris is a terrific actor and can be seen in the comedy film “Mall Cop: Blart 2” coming in April 2015.

You may also recognize him from his recent appearance on AXS channel’s “Gotham Comedy Live”, as well as numerous television commercials.  He is currently performing Off-Broadway in an original award nominated play that he co-wrote titled “Shut Up, Sit Down & Eat!” The show is currently running at The Snapple Theatre in New York City.

He has written for “The Joan Rivers Radio Show” along with numerous stints as an opening act for Joan Rivers and B.B. King. Chris also headlines in Atlantic City, Las Vegas and Reno.


Eric Lyden’s sarcastic and self-deprecating style of comedy celebrates the life and struggles of the working class hero. Making his lower-middle-class existence and lack of success the focal point of his comedy, Eric gives his audiences someone they can both laugh with and relate to.

Now living and performing in New York City, Eric works the circuit of well-known New York City clubs including CAROLINES on Broadway, STAND-UP NY, and GOTHAM COMEDY CLUB.


Gary DeLena  is a triple threat showman. A singing impressionist, an accomplished musician, and a comedian. His show mixes musical parodies, good natured clowning and the ability to befriend the room by simply chatting. With all the hostile comedy making the rounds, DeLena is a wonderful refuge.


Best described as a show without boundaries, Hilby is the living proof that being German doesn’t mean you cannot be funny. While being an expert in juggling all sorts of objects and subjects as well as countless circus and variety skills (such as Unicycling, ropewalking, unsupported ladder, fire manipulations and eating, balancing stunts and the list goes on and on), he really gets his audience involved and creates magical and hilarious moments through their participation. Yes, all that and more….. the long and short of it is that you will love this Skinny German Juggle Boy!


With ISAACS & BAKER you don’t just watch the show, you’re a part of it. Their fast paced off the cuff show can be based entirely on the theme of your event or the vibe of the audience at your club that night. Audience members give us the ideas and suggestions, so there’s no predicting the punch line and no show is the same twice! A musical salute to Human Resources? The CEO starring in a Kung Fu film? You decide, we deliver. It’s a show filled with call backs and catch phrases that your audience members or party goers will be using for months or years to come!


Whether taking on relationships, his Italian-American family, or current events, JOE DeVITO’s dead-on timing, unexpected twists and sheer flights of lunacy make him a favorite at clubs and colleges across the USA, and at the top venues in New York City.
