Hailing from the glamorous streets of Hollywood, CA, Clownvis Presley has accomplished more in the past few years than most entertainers achieve in their whole careers. In addition to hosting his own monthly variety show and MCing countless events, his charisma, quick wit, and superior singing voice have earned him opening slots on quite a few high-profile shows. He has toured extensively and performed with superstars such as Little Richard, Neil Hamburger, the Dresden Dolls, Jewel, and The Goo Goo Dolls to name a few -- all of which has earned him the title "King of Clowns."
Thanks to a controversial appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent, Clownvis is now familiar to millions of people around the planet. His phenomenal audition must be seen to be believed (maybe even more than once). Clownvis also made a hilarious appearance on BET's Judge Karen's Court in 2010.
The King of Clowns is a staple of the current Los Angeles comedy and music scene. Much more than just a party clown, this showman does it all. In addition to hosting music awards, festivals, fundraisers and burlesque revues, Clownvis is also a good guy, donating his talents to charity events and non-profit organizations.

Brendon Small (born Feb. 15, 1975 in Springfield, Illinois) is a stand-up comedian and co-creator, writer, star, and music writer for UPN's and later Cartoon Network's Home Movies which has now completed production. Small graduated from the Berklee College of Music, where he began his love affair with speed guitar.
In Home Movies, he portrayed the lead character, an 8-year-old aspiring filmmaker, also named Brendon Small, and a number of other, more minor characters. Early episodes of the show featured squigglevision, a style made famous by the cartoon Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, produced by Soup2Nuts, the same company that produced Home Movies.
In April 2005 the Sci Fi Channel announced Small's latest show, Barbarian Chronicles, a half-hour animated ensemble comedy. It will be produced by Small and Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Small is also working on the Adult Swim series Metalocalypse, which premiered August 6, 2006. He is also doing several voices in Season 2 of The Venture Bros.
Small posed for a pictorial that appeared in the (cover-dated) April 2006 issue of Playgirl magazine, as part of a humor-themed issue. AdultSwim.com (the official website of Cartoon Network programming block Adult Swim, on which Home Movies airs) reported on March 7, 2006, that Small posed wearing "nothing but a Viking helmet"; the Playgirl website further described a "strategically placed Viking helmet", indicating that Small's genitals were not exposed in the pictorial.
Brendon Small currently resides in Los Angeles, California with his dog, Ernie.
