April 24 - 27, 2012
Dave Foley

Dave Foley was born and raised in Toronto, and at a young age, he began writing stand-up comedy for creative writing projects. His interest in improv led him to comedy workshops, where he met and teamed with Kevin McDonald. They became "The Kids in the Hall" one year later and the rest is history! Their distinct and irreverent brand of comedy quickly earned "The Kids in the Hall" a large cult following influencing a new generation of sketch comedy. In 1987, Lorne Michaels produced their first television special. By 1989, the troupe had their own series on the Canadian Broadcasting Co. and, later on HBO, where it aired until 1991. CBS and Comedy Central soon after picked it up, where it ran from 1992-1994. They crossed over into feature films with the 1995 release of "Brain Candy" for Paramount Pictures. After the successful television run of "The Kids in the Hall," Dave signed onto the long running NBC series, "Newsradio." In between seasons, he forged a feature film career that is still very active today.

Pablo Francisco

When Pablo Francisco hits the stage, he immediately brings his audiences to their feet with boisterous laughter and applause. He weaves together his arsenal of characters, spontaneous outbursts, and clever insights to create a stand-up show that more resembles an hour-long comedic jazz riff. He is an off-the-wall, animated character that points out the absurdity in an illogical, pop-culture obsessed world. His unmatched take on all things pop culture has taken him into the ranks of the most popular touring comedians worldwide. Pablo's enormous popularity and outrageously funny material has hooked millions of viewers on YouTube and Facebook.
