If Nick Gaza looks familiar to you he should. Nick has appeared on such hit T.V. shows as “Drew Carey”, “Malcolm in the Middle”, “Becker”, “Dharma and Greg” , “Profiler”, “The Pretender”, “Comedy Central Tough Crowd” and too many others to list. His stand-up comedy career which has spanned over twenty-five years has taken him from places like the Strip of Las Vegas all around the world to our Troops in the forward operating bases in the deserts of Afghanistan. Nicks comedy is a hysterical mixture of true stories and things we can only hope aren’t true. Nick’s strong improvisation background makes every show unique. Nick makes fun of everyone and everything. No one is safe in his act. Nothing escapes the crosshairs of his comedy including his friends, his family, the audience and even himself. His act is a mixture of hysterical true stories and things we can only hope aren’t true. His comedy knows no boundaries, so be warned! But if you’re the kind of person who laughs at things you know you shouldn’t, then Nick’s comedy show is something you must see.
Barry Neal has worked his way up the comedy ladder by working hard, taking advice from those who have been successful, and never letting others tell him what he couldn’t do. After graduating from Northwestern University and completing a successful run in the famous Mee-Ow show (whose members have included Julia Louis Dreyfus, Seth Meyers, and more), his brother dared him to do a routine at an open mic. Barry was a hit that night, and knew that stand-up was his next mountain to climb. For the next year, Barry played every hole in the wall club he could and performed for more drunks and characters than in the famous bar scene from Star Wars. Barry returned to L.A. and auditioned at the World Famous Improv. He passed the audition and for the next 3 years was a regular comedian and house m/c. During that time, Barry learned from the best comedians in the country. He watched people like Jerry Seinfeld, Bill Maher, Ellen Degeneres, and Tim Allen, just to name a few. After a few years of being at the Improv, Barry hit the road again, but this time as a headliner.
Debbie Praver lives in Los Angeles but is always more at home in New York City, because in Manhattan people are ready to order when they get to the front of the line. Her impatience combined with her sarcastic wit made stand-up comedy her only career option. She was an invited guest performer at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival, has shared the stage with Kathy Griffin in Dennis Hensley’s “Screening Party” and performs regularly at the Improv, the Comedy Store, and the Friars Club. Debbie honed her writing skills with Desperate Housewives Creator Marc Cherry and Desperate Housewives Co-executive Producers Joey Murphy and John Pardee. The refinement of her stand up act happened as she studied with the fabulously talented yet brutally honest Mark Lonow.
