Reggie Steele in Broadway REGGIE STEELE
Punch Line Comedy Club
Reggie Steele began his comedy career in 2000 when he decided to take a friend's advice to stop "wasting his talent". Inspired, he hit every open mic the Bay Area had to offer, polishing his characteristic storytelling-style of telling real life stories with his own unique 'embellishments'. Reggie's natural and engaging style proved to be very popular amongst audiences and he won the inaugural Rooster T. Feathers amateur comedy competition, besting over 100 Bay Area comedians. That was just the beginning, and since then he has performed for the troops overseas, appeared on Martin Lawrence Presents the 1st Amendment Stand-Up, Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, and Comedy.TV. He was a finalist in NBC's Stand-Up for Diversity Contest, had a small recurring role in NBC's Trauma, has appeared in the movie Love on the Line and the Youtube favorite Black Guys on a Beautiful Day 1 and 2. He is currently filming the movie "Hey Monster, Hands Off My City!" in San Francisco.

Freddie Rainbow Presents: Gender Night  in Broadway FREDDIE RAINBOW PRESENTS: GENDER NIGHT
Punch Line Comedy Club
Renowned feminist and female sympathizer Ray Molina hosts a hilarious night that showcases some of California's best female comedians!(Comedy shows tend to be packed with male comedians due to there being more males who pursue stand up.) And because Freddie Rainbow, at his essence, is nothing more than a conduit for equality he decided that it's time to balance the scale. Freddie Rainbow has toured for over 30 years and has met some fantastic female comics and wants to now share them with Sacramento comedy fans. Don't expect to just hear jokes about shopping and bad boyfriends, these are artists! And sure, some artists like to shop and some even have boyfriends so it might come up.

God's Favorite in Broadway GOD'S FAVORITE
Sutter Street Theatre
Successful Long Island businessman Joe Benjamin is a modern-day 'Job' with a demanding wife, ungrateful children and wise-cracking household employees. Just when it seems things couldn't get any worse, he is visited by Sidney Lipton, a.k.a. A Messenger from God (and compulsive film buff) with a mission: test Joe's faith and report back to "the Boss". The jokes and Tests of Faith fly fast and furious as Neil Simon spins a contemporary morality tale like no other in this hilarious comedy.

Sleeping Beauty in Broadway SLEEPING BEAUTY
Sutter Street Theatre
The emphasis is on comedy in this musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale. A delightful group of characters are assembled, that young audiences will find as enchanting as the magic in the story itself. There's Chester the Jester, Typsy the Gypsy and the Royal Magician who is so inept he transforms himself into a frog. And there's the evil Thornberry, who puts the curse on Princess Elaine (the "sleeping beauty") and the brave Prince Dauntless who battles the fire-breathing dragon to break the magic spell. Add ten tuneful songs to this zany story and the entire family will be in for a delightful theatre experience.

Jo Koy in Broadway JO KOY
Punch Line Comedy Club
From filling clubs across the nation to being seen as a regular guest on Chelsea Lately, Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest start performing at a Las Vegas coffee house. His infectiously explosive energy on stage, insightful jokes and family inspired humor cross all boundaries and led Daily Variety to name him one of the "10 Comics to Watch". Born in Tacoma, Washington, Jo credits his mother for his comedic and acting talents. Growing up, his mother constantly encouraged him to take part in school talent shows or present impromptu performances for his family and friends. This encouragement led to the Las Vegas coffee house, then a move to Los Angeles, and finally a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2005. He became one of a select few to ever receive a standing ovation on the show. Since his Tonight Show performance, Jo was part of Carlos Mencia's "Punisher Tour" in 2006. He has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, BET's Comic View, Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza, and appeared in various VH1 I Love the 70?s, 80?s and 90?s episodes. His Comedy Central special "Don't Make Him Angry" aired in January, 2009 and is now available on DVD. He is a regular featured comedian at the world famous Improv, tours the college circuit nationwide and performs in Comedy Clubs both in the US and internationally. Jo lives in Los Angeles.

A Christmas Carol in Broadway A CHRISTMAS CAROL
Stockton Civic Theatre
This musical ran for the holiday season at the Madison Square Garden Theatre. In 2004, this version became the basis of an NBC Hallmark Entertainment special, featuring Kelsey Grammer, and an array of stars including Jason Alexander, Jesse L. Martin, Jane Krakowski, Geraldine Chaplin, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ruthie Henshall. But even without starry casts and spectacular trappings, this show retains its emotional power and pure joy thanks to the marvelously told story and beautiful score.

Outrage in Broadway OUTRAGE
Big Idea Theatre
"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." A time-bending roller-coaster ride through history, Outrage deftly moves between Ancient Greece, the Inquisition, Nazi Germany, and modern day academia. Outrage examines the price people pay for staying true to their principles in the face of vicious oppression and reminds us that the revolutionary of one era may become the tyrant of the next.
