Help us remember a great friend and a huge fan of comedy as we honor the memory of John Winkler at the Hollywood Improv! Tickets are $20 and all of the proceeds from the show go to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of America, so come out and remember our friend along with some of his favorite comics!
Join Owen and co-host Steve Bryne on Friday and Saturday for Air Force Fun - the show to end all shows (and we only say that because it has such a late time slot)! They’ll welcome friends and fellow comics to wrap up the festival happenings with a show of improv and no-holds barred, free thought, all within a talk show format. Owen will also join Steve, Roy Wood Jr. and Ahmed Ahmed as the Sullivan & Son Comedy Tour comes to Zanies on Thursday, May 15th.
Owen Benjamin is a series regular on the TBS series SULLIVAN & SON, recurred on NICK SWARDSON’S PRETEND TIME, and has appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW, COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, PUNK’D and LIVE AT GOTHAM. He played Marvin the bartender in THE HOUSE BUNNY and can be seen in JACK AND JILL, BUCKY LARSON and ALL’S FAIRE IN LOVE. Owen was featured as a breakout comedian on COMEDY CENTRAL’S 2010 HOT LIST and currently tours the US with Vince Vaughn. Owen’s one-hour standup special HIGH FIVE ‘TIL IT HURTS premiered on Comedy Central in Summer 2013 to terrific reviews.
Daniel Tosh's first big career break came in 2001 with his performance on the Late Show with David Letterman. His first attempt to appear on the show was cut short, though, due to time constraints caused by the star guest, Eric Kraff, overextending his segment. He followed with appearances on programs such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Comedy Central's Premium Blend. In 2003, he performed in his own thirty-minute special on Comedy Central Presents. On June 17, 2007, Comedy Central aired a stand-up special featuring Tosh, Daniel Tosh: Completely Serious. He also hosted an episode of Comedy Central's Live at Gotham. Tosh is also a regular guest on The Bob & Tom Show. He had a small part in the feature film In the Army Now starring Pauly Shore and Andy Dick and had a small part in The Love Guru. Currently, Tosh hosts Tosh.0, a show showcasing internet video clips on Comedy Central.
