Claude Stuart

Comedian Valarie StormFrom packing comedy venues across the globe to regular television appearances on shows like “The Tonight Show,” and “Last Comic Standing,” Claude Stuart has come a long way from his down home southern roots. By his own admission, he was “paddled on more than one occasion for being the class clown.” Claude’s explosive, in-your-face, rapid-fire, madman stage style is truly an exhilarating assault on the senses and has evoked comparisons to golden era physical comedians such as Steve Martin, Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. Claude’s unique brand of Don Rickles-esque crowd interaction, coupled with clever well-written jokes makes him not only the world’s first physical insult comedian but a “comedy triple threat!”

Claude’s decision to pursue a career as a comedian was not well received by his family. Born in deep south tugboat town, Greenville Mississippi, Claude’s attorney father and school teacher mother were not initially thrilled their only son chose stand-up over law school. Growing up, there was a lot of judgement. “Most kids got in trouble; I got cross examined and would hear things like, ‘This is what you did wrong and here’s why,’” says Claude. Instead of taking the criticism personally, he transformed the experience into the unique style his fans have come to know and love. He likens his comedy to legal arguments focused upon proving a point, which clearly comes from growing up in a family full of lawyers. Now, even his parents agree: comedy was the right choice.

Claude’s natural comedic flair was recognized early on. As a teen he interned at a local radio station and ended up writing and performing a morning show broadcast to over 30 cities nationwide. Next he won the title, “Funniest Person at SMU.” After a pit stop in Houston where he developed his stand up act, he naturally ended up in L.A.. This lead to an extremely successful stand up career; as well as myriad appearances in feature films and television, including a recent spot starring with Jay Leno on the wildly popular “Undercover Jay” skit segment of “The Tonight Show.”  Some of his other credits include national commercials for products such as, Honda, Heineken, Jeep, Grapenuts and even Midol. He has appeared on “That 70’s Show,” “Scrubs,” “Comics Unleashed,” “Entertainers,” “The Best Damn Sports Period!,” “Oblivious!,” “Talk Soup” and as a regular on “The Bob and Tom Show.”

Claude frequently performs at the world famous Hollywood Improv and is currently on tour, headlining comedy clubs, colleges and military tours for our troops; nationwide and internationally.  Claude also recently co-founded the production company/sketch comedy team “Recycled Babies”; in which he is a writer, producer and performer.

Tommy Torres

This high energy mid-40s NJ native hits the stage, and doesn't hold back!! Tommy has the ability to grab your attention early, and keep you there until the very end!!

Tommy has always loved stand-up comedy, and has seen many of the legends perform live, including his all-time favorite comedian, George Carlin. He has never been afraid of the stage, and started his comedy career in March, 2008, at a local comedy workshop in Jacksonville, FL.  After a few short months, Tommy was hosting at the Comedy Zone in Jacksonville, and shortly thereafter, was featuring regionally. 

Since then, Tommy has shared the stage with many great comedians like Ralphie May, Kevin Pollak, Louis Ramey, Jon Reep, Billy Gardell, John Caparulo, Reno Collier, Henry Cho, Bobcat Goldthwait, Rich Vos, John Joseph, Guy Torry, Tommy Davidson, and many others.

Tommy is a regular guest on 99.9 FM Gator Radio's "Hometown Morning Show" in Jacksonville, FL., and "Funny Business" Internet Radio. He was a Semi-Finalist in the 2011 "Florida's Funniest Comedian" competition, the 2012 Mardi Gras Casino Comedy Challenge, and was voted Jacksonville's "Best Local Comedian" for 2012. Tommy will take you on a roller coaster ride of hilarious everyday events, real-life happenings, personal history, and family events in a way that any audience can relate to, and every audience loves!!

Mike Rivera

America’s Most Hilarious Teacher, Mike Rivera began his career performing comedy while a student at San Jose State University. Always valuing education, Mike set-off to perfect his Stand-Up skills in the comedy clubs of the San Francisco Bay Area. Within a year, Mike was a regular at all the clubs, opening for big named acts and appearing on local television and radio stations.

After becoming a regional winner of ShowTime’s Funniest Person in America and appearing on HBO’s From the Earth to the Moon, Mike Rivera found a way to bring his comedic act to our future generations.

For the past thirteen years, Mike has been bringing humor to his students as a full-time Civics middle school teacher. Winning Teacher of the Year in his very first year as an educator, Mike realized he could really make a difference in and out of the classroom. In his thirteen years of teaching, Mike has been recognized for his innovative teaching approach by being named Whose Who Among American Teachers, earning Most Comprehensive Multicultural Program, and also Pinellas County School’s Program on the Move. Working as a comic at night, the number thirteen proved to be a lucky number when he was named America’s Most Hilarious Teacher in 2013.

A favorite teacher to many, Mr. Rivera’s philosophy is that all students should have the right and opportunity to learn in a caring environment that encourages them to reach their highest potential, all the while having fun.

Mike Rivera - America's Most Hilarious TeacherIt is this philosophy that has motivated Mike to guide students abroad for the last ten years. Taking kinesthetic learning to an entirely different level, Mike takes students out of the classroom and into the world by leading them on tours across the United States, Europe, the Caribbean, China, Peru, Asia, and South America. Viewing the world through the eyes of his students is only one of the many things that make Mr. Rivera a comical teacher students will never forget.

As America’s Most Hilarious Teacher, Mike Rivera is a versatile performer who brings high energy with a brazen sense of humor for one knockout show in and out of the classroom.

Brian Thomas

Brian Thomas has quickly created a foothold for himself by becoming a finalist in each comedy competition he has attended. His humor stems from his living situation, as he not only lives with his parents, but his grandmother as well.

Brian's sarcastic style of comedy is tempered by his sometimes silly wit, and augmented by his clever use of facial expressions. He has experience performing in not only comedy clubs across the country, but country/golf clubs, bars, nightclubs, fraternity organizations, corporate events, charitable organizations, private parties, colleges, and the occasional back yard.mor for one knockout show in and out of the classroom.

Brian has performed stand-up comedy in venues from the rowdiest bars to the calmest of country clubs. In other words, he knows how to perform dirty or clean as needed. His comedy style is a mix of the silly and sarcastic, and he'll touch on topics ranging from his appearance, living with his parents (and grandmother), and his awkward social life. Brian is professional, punctual, and always has fun while performing (which is obvious to the audience).
