Lahna Turner is quickly becoming one of the hottest females on the comedy circuit. With her sharp wit and hilarious songs, Lahna holds nothing back as she shares insights and observations from her life as a wife, mother, and the uncensored inner voice of millions of women. In August, she will release her first one-hour special, filmed live in Las Vegas, titled “So… I Wrote A Song About It.”
Able to relate to people like few entertainers can, Lahna is absolutely unafraid to say things that might at first seem “uncomfortable,” but inevitably have the audiences relating and rolling with laughter. She has a unique point of view as a comedian. She’s a mother of two children, a wife, and a writer. She balances her career and home life brilliantly, with a seemingly endless amount of energy. She is then able to take her life experiences and her comedic wit, and relate to people about the things we all go through on a daily basis.
Lahna has appeared on NBC, Comedy Central, Animal Planet and VH1. She has also been featured as a commentator on CMT Insider and most recently on TruTV’s “How to be a Grownup.” She regularly plays the top comedy clubs and theaters around the country and has also done several tours for the USO. Recently, she made her big screen debut in the indie film “Teacher of The Year,” which is currently touring the festival circuit. Her two comedy albums, “If These Lips Could Talk” and “D!@k Jokes and Other Assorted Love Songs,” have received airplay at top radio stations across the country as well as National Lampoon’s Top 40 comedy countdown, and are currently in rotation on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
“Hot chicks are always appreciated in society, but meet one like Lahna Turner who can make you pee your pants with laughter and you've got yourself a rare find. Juggling a successful comedy career, a husband (fellow comedian Ralphie May), two kids and upcoming role in the movie "Teacher of the Year," and a freakin' podcast, we wonder if there's anything this superwoman can't do.” - Ali Lerman, OCWeekly.com
“No small laughs… Some of the best musical comedy I’ve ever heard.” - ComedyCritic.com

Gary Cannon's mom knew her son had comedic talent when, at the young age of five, Gary had a very bad cold. At the time, his mom was out of kleenex and offered her son toilet paper instead. Gary quickly replied, "I need to blow my nose not wipe my ass." Well, sure Gary got the shit beat out of him–I mean was sent for a timeout–but that was the beginning of his incredible comedy career.
Since that day, Gary knew he wanted to entertain people. He moved to San Francisco and quickly became a favorite among the local comics and audiences. After developing his style and confidence, Gary moved to Los Angeles and immediately began working some of the top clubs in southern California, including the Hollywood Improv and the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.
After about a year in LA, Gary transitioned his comedy into another area, studio audience warm up. Most T.V. shows have a warm up comic who entertains the audience before the show starts. Gary 's high energy and ability to work a crowd made him a great fit for this opportunity. He landed his first job for the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast infomercial. Gary was excited to be doing audience warm up but even more excited to meet comedy legend Don Rickles who was there for the taping. What a great first day!!!
Gary went on to warm up the Late Late Show with then host Craig Kilborn and current host Craig Ferguson. In 2005, Gary landed the warm up job on Last Call w/ Carson Daly when the show moved from New York to L.A. Gary has also worked on some other big shows, including Dancing with the Stars and Americas Got Talent. Gary has worked with some amazing comics including Bob Saget, Dana Carvey, Norm MacDonald, Brian Regan, Ralphie May, David Alan Grier, John Pinette, and Jim Gaffigan. Gary currently tours some of the best clubs in the country, and one nasty club in Shreveport. For legal reasons Mr. Cannon must tell you he is in no way referring to the Funnybone Comedy Club in Shreveport. Please note: The Funnybone is the only comedy club located in the fine city of Shreveport.
Check out the Tour Dates page to see when Gary is coming to your city. Gary is proud to say in his time as a comic, he has only been screwed over by (384) club owners.
But don't think that Gary is only involved with high dollar, high ticket events. Gary consistently donates his time to a cause dear to him, Autism. After learning his niece was affected with this condition, Gary is always participating in events to raise money and create awareness for this rapidly growing disorder.
2012 will mark Gary’s fourteenth year anniversary in comedy. Although he doesn't like to brag about his income, an unconfirmed source at Forbes magazine said Gary must be doing well since he shares a studio apartment with only six other people. And with the high cost of rent in Los Angeles, the unconfirmed source said, “I can only assume this is one nice studio apartment.” Take into account his day job as a sign twirler for Liberty Income Tax and an amazing invention called the Coinstar machine, Gary Cannon is a true Hollywood success. And Gary wants to confirm and end all rumors posted on TMZ. He broke it off with Lady Gaga... not the other way around.
