Appearing this weekend: MIKE E. WINFIELD January 3 - 6
Mike E. Winfield in minutes will describe what has happened in your life that very day. Many often leave his show saying, "Does he live with us?" Strikingly brilliant comedian Mike E. has not slowed down since his debut on The Late Show W/ David Letterman and most recently winning a reoccurring role on NBC's The Office. Whether its hardships or love, you're gonna get it served honestly from this charismatic Baltimore native who now resides in California's state capitol. When asked, why Sacramento? He says, "If they want you, they'll find you."

His success is rapidly rising and you may have seen him on Showtime's Comics Without Borders or Comedy Central's Live at Gotham. Don't miss your opportunity to witness something very special in the making. He appeared on NBC's The Office this past November.

Appearing next weekend: MARYELLEN HOOPER January 10 - 13
A veteran in the world of stand-up, Maryellen Hooper's comedy has taken her from clubs and colleges to theaters and television. She's appeared on "The Dennis Miller Show", "The Martin Short Show", "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno and has had her own ½ hour special on Comedy Central called "Lounge Lizards". In 1998, the comedy industry awarded Maryellen "Female Comedian of the Year" at the American Comedy Awards.<

A physical, story-teller, Maryellen's act is an ever-evolving story about her life as a woman, wife and mother. Never crude or offensive, her accounts of life's little annoyances leave audiences exhausted from laughter. From home repairs on her family's "Fixer Upper" to colicky babies, no story is too sacred to share with her audiences. Maryellen just taped her latest stand-up special, "Stinky Flowers" which will air this fall. The special is based on her stories about Wifedom and Mommyhood from her hugely popular blog, Stinky Flowers.
