    Volume One, will be released this March. His Comedy Central Presents Half-Hour 

    Stand-Up Special will premiere this year. Erik is a first generation American-born 

    comedian/actor who made the decision in 2003 to quit his job and plunge headlong into 

    making comedy his full-time occupation.

     

    Erik first gained national exposure performing in the ALMA nominated “Payaso Comedy 

    Slam” seen on Showtime and Comedy Central networks, “Live at Gotham” on Comedy 

    Central, “Last Comic Driving” on NBC, “Comics Without Borders” on Showtime, nationally

    Nominated, six times for an American Comedy Award, Dom Irrera's stand-up material was honed in a multi-generational Italian household in South Philadelphia with his mother, sister, grandmother, uncles and cousins all under one very big roof. A great-grandmother even lived across the street. Together there were three floors and four generations of family.

    His first big break was his performance on Rodney Dangerfield's "Nothing Goes Right" comedy specials for HBO. In 1989 Irrera's own HBO "One Night Stand" earned him his first CableACE award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special. In '95 he won a second CableACE for the Showtime stand-up series he hosted, "Full Frontal Comedy". That same year he received a second CableACE nomination in the writing category for his work on Comedy Central's animated series, "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist". He also starred in a solo stand-up special for HBO in '92 titled "Command Performance".

Recent credits include an all-new stand-up special titled "Comedy Central Presents", which aired on the cable network this past summer.

    As an avid sports fan, he hosted four seasons of Comedy Central's irreverent football show, "Offsides", where he conducted hilarious on-the-field interviews with football greats. He also hosted Comedy Central's "Behind the Scenes at the American Comedy Awards: specials in '98 and '99.

    Irrera was a series regular on the '98 Fox comedy "Damon" starring Damon Wayans and his guest-star credits include "Seinfeld" (he played an annoying prop comic needling Jerry in the memorable episode), "Becker", "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "King of Queens". In addition, Dom voices the character Ernie, the demolitions expert, on Nickelodeon's "Hey Arnold".

    His film work includes a featured role in Robert Townsend's "Hollywood Shuffle", a cameo in the Coen Bros. Film, "The Big Lebowski", "The Fourth Tenor", starring old pal Rodney Dangerfield, and he played himself in the Rodney Dangerfield / Dom De Luise film, "The Godson".

    Dom has performed at Montreal's prestigious "Just For Laughs Festival" and the "Cat Laughs Festival" in Kilkenny, Ireland (he's made more appearances at both festivals than any other American comic). He also has performed at the "Melbourne Comedy Festival" in Australia, and at "Edinburgh Festival's" Assembly Hall. It was there that he received the "Herald Award" for artistic excellence.

  • Ralphie May

    Ralphie May

    Voted one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch,” Ralphie May has released, a record-setting, four one- hour comedy specials and will be releasing two more this year, proving that his relatable comedic genius is in higher demand than ever. In addition, he recently released a vintage comedy album recorded in Houston in 1998 and his new line of barbecue sauce called “Fat Baby Jesus.” Lovable enough to get away with anything, Ralphie continues to capture the hearts of thousands on his sold out tours and promises to make you gleefully uncomfortable.
     
    Since his debut on season one of “Last Comic Standing,” audiences can’t get enough of the larger than life comedian.  Ralphie has a proven track record of selling out multiple shows in 1,500 to 3,000 seat venues.  He has a no nonsense point of view and the ability to connect with a diverse audience by pointing out society’s hypocrisies.  Ralphie doesn’t shy away from touchy topics or ethnic jokes, nor does he bite his tongue when society suggests, because he sincerely believes that as long as what he’s saying is true, people need to hear it.
     
    Born on February 17, 1972 in Chattanooga, Tennessee and raised in Clarksville, Arkansas, Ralphie was one of four kids raised by his single mom.  At the age of seventeen he won a contest to open for his idol, Sam Kinison.  He later moved to Houston to develop his comedy routine, at Kinison’s suggestion.   “All the comics I’ve ever admired, whether it be Kinison, Lenny Bruce, Buddy Hackett or Richard Pryor, all share a commonality,” says May.  “They’re a tour de force.  When they speak, there’s no room for rebuttal.  They’ve thought it all out.  Even the pros and cons of their argument, they raise openly and debate in the midst of their conversation and it’s a beautiful thing to watch.”
     
    On the small screen, Ralphie has worked as a writer and producer on ESPN's “Mohr Sports” starring Jay Mohr and performed stand-up on numerous late night talk shows including four appearances on CBS's “The Late Late Show w/ Craig Kilborn” as well as eleven appearances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”  He has appeared on “The Man Show” and MTV’s “Bash” as well as guest- starred on NBC’s “Whoopie.”   As if that’s not enough, he’s also one of a handful of comedians to have received a standing ovation on “The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno.” 
     
    When he’s not on the road, Ralphie divides his time between Nashville and Los Angeles with his beautiful wife Lahna, their wonderful dog Hoochie Mama, and their two children, April June May and August James May.  He contributes much of his time and energy to helping others.  Since establishing a residence in Nashville, he has been actively involved with the 100 Club of Nashville, various youth organizations and the Humane Society.
