For over 20 years Todd Yohn's high energy, non-stop act has blended stand-up, improv, and music into one deliciously stimulating show. His fresh and clever original comedy tunes such as "The Femenine Hygene Song" "Daddy Please Don't Go" and the very popular" Orange Barrels" have separated Todd from the "other" guitar playing comedy acts.
Todd has been an accomplished musician for many years and still has a songwriting deal with MCA Publishing in Nashville, Tennessee. He is one of the few performers today who has the rare ability to produce large amounts of laughter with the lift of an eye brow or droop of the lip.
Todd's combination of material, uncanny sense of timing and his complete uniqueness of personality, has earned him the reputation as one of the best club comedians in the country. As a matter of fact, Tom Griswald of the nationally syndicated morning radio show "Bob and Tom" has said that, "Todd Yohn is, by far, the funniest live comedian show anyone will ever see". At 6'3" and 180 pounds Todd is a red-headed, walking, talking cartoon. A master of physical comedy, Todd can move in and out of characters within seconds and make anyone think they are watching multiple performers. But then again, that's what Todd does best!
Watching Todd's show, one gets the feeling that they are watching an "out-take" of a movie as Todd is laughing himself and having a genuinely grand time on stage. This self-deprecating comic puts you at ease from the beginning to the end of his show and you will hurt from laughing as you leave his performance.
Todd is heavily requested on the college circuit as well as the corporate world and national comedy club network. You might have seen Todd on HBO, SHOWTIME, VH-1, and COMEDY CENTRAL.
He has worked with Glenn Campbell, The Four Tops, Charlie Daniels, and is Joan Rivers' favorite opening act (in his price range). His humor and songwriting have made him one of the ORIGINAL "regulars" of "The Bob and Tom Show".
According to Kevin Brady of Outback Concert Promotions, "Todd is my number one closer for the "Friends of the Bob and Tom Show" national tours." Simply put, Todd does comedy the way comedy was meant to be performed. He is a total performer who will thrill any audience!
Don't miss the opportunity to experience this "one of a kind" entertainer! Read more...

Gathering material from a wealth of life experiences, Jose takes audiences on the rollercoaster ride that’s been his life. Born in Cuba and deported because of his father’s political prisoner status, he came to the U.S. at a young age. Growing up with a hard working, and always quirky, Cuban family brought loads of funny moments everyday.
From his mother’s ability to kill a chicken with her bare hands, to his Dad’s ability to hit on any woman, anytime, there was never a dull moment. What they did best was teach him to work hard for his dreams, and not forget how to laugh at life and himself. He made them proud when, after high school, he was accepted to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. He became an officer in the Air Force, is an accomplished aviator, and is a veteran having served in Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. He’s been all over the world and has even been shot at in two countries. This and more he brings to the stage believing that, “if you can’t laugh at a hard time in your life, you ain’t over it yet.”
His comedy career started out in New York and Philadelphia, getting on stage anytime he wasn’t serving. He performs all over the country now and is rapidly becoming an audience favorite for his ability to make deportation, and life threatening moments hysterical.
He’s been featured in the Air Force Times, was selected for the 2007 Latino Laugh Festival in Los Angeles, and the Lucky 21 Contest at The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. In 2008 he won the Funniest Person In South Texas Comedy Competition and was a semi-finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition.

He is the co-host of NUVO TV’s Stand Up and Deliver which airs it’s fourth season in 2015. Most nights you can find him on stage somewhere, but one week a month its all dog tags and volleyball, down in Texas, teaching the next generation of top guns the basics. Read more...
