ABOUT THE EVENT

Bruce Bruce (born as Bruce Church on February 9, 1965) is an African-American actor and stand-up comedian from Atlanta, Georgia. He grew up in The Bluff, one of the city's roughest ghettos.He was the host of BET's ComicView and has appeared in various stand-up comedy specials and television series. He was also a spokesman for Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits.

Arnez J Diverging from the hard-edged raunchy and streetwise observational styles of other contemporary African-American comedians, Arnez J offers comic routines reminiscent of an earlier era of comedy. His improvisational comic style is primarily physical, with a strong reliance on impressions and exaggerations of familiar personalities. "J is a whirling dervish on stage--he runs, jumps, spins, slides, slips, and mugs through a performance, acting out many of his bits while describing them," wrote Doug Kaufman in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. His idols are the classic television comedians of the 1960s: Flip Wilson, Red Skelton, and a performer who might be considered an unlikely inspiration for a modern African-American male artist. "There was never a nicer and funnier comedian to me than Carol Burnett," Arnez J explained to Daniel Neman of the Richmond Times Dispatch. "The Carol Burnett Show, to me, will never be replaced."

Gary Owen is an American actor and stand-up comedian. After being named “Funniest Serviceman In America,” his big break came in 1997 on Black Entertainment Television's stand-up showcase Comic View. Owen’s followed this debut with featured roles in the films Daddy Day Care, Little Man, and College. He has cultivated an African-American following after headlining on cable channel BET and performing at targeted events, such as Shaquille O'Neal's All-Star Comedy Jam Tour.

Dominique A run on the highly successful Def Comedy Jam Tour and numerous television appearances including the fresh new "Comic Groove" on Comedy Central, the legendary "Showtime at the Apollo" and the controversial "Comic View" on Black Entertainment Television prompted a move to Los Angeles. Upon arrival, Dominique began making the rounds in Hollywood's comedy clubs as well as the smaller lesser known clubs in LA. "I like telling jokes in mainstream clubs as well as underground spots cause it keeps me fresh no matter where I am". And fresh she is. She has become a club staple and continues to tour clubs and colleges around the country. Since 1998, Dominique has been a headliner on the RJE Comedy Cabaret Tour www.comediandepot.com, the largest and highest grossing college/ university based comedy tour. She has participated in Urban Internationals Comedy Arts Festival better know as Jamie Foxx's "laffapalooza" as well as the Don "DC" Curry's "Bay Area Comedy Competition" in Oakland. After Two (2) years of study, she added acting to her resume when she landed a part in the critically acclaimed indie "Thirty Years to Life".
