Clownvis Presley: 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.
Sina Amedson: One of the stars and writers of the critically acclaimed Sundance hit, Circumstance, and a finalist in the 2008 Rocky Mountain Laugh Off, Sina was featured in the 2009 Middle Eastern Comedy Festival, as well as landing roles in TNT's Southland and ABC's FlashForward, Sina Amedson has come a long way from his humble beginnings performing in dingy dive bars across the country. Since 2003, Sina has been bringing his unique brand of comedy to the stage. Through social commentary and vivid storytelling Sina will not only have you laughing, but contemplating life as well. Come out to say you've seen a grown man named Sina and stay to listen to one of the future voices of comedy.
