As the undisputed “Queen of Comedy,” Sommore is widely considered one of America’s top comedic female entertainers and combines sass and class to entertain audiences. She is the star of the 2013 comedy special “Chandelier Status” and was the first woman to host BET’s “Comic View.” Sommore offers a hilarious, yet piercing look at today’s issues from a woman’s perspective, which led Oprah Winfrey to proclaim her “a force to be reckoned with in the new millennium.”
Bruce Bruce’s steady style of captivating improv skills and larger-than-life comedic style has been showcased across the country. Bruce Bruce brought his comedy routine to the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta and was an instant hit.

Earthquake has performed on stages at HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” and made special appearances on Comedy Central, Bill Maher, and Conan O’Brien. His breakout performance came with his hit special “About Got Damn Time” and his performances on “Clerks II” and “Everybody Hates Chris” cemented his place as a stalwart in comedy.
After realizing that stand-up comedy was his true calling, Arnez J. began to work the comedy circuit in Georgia. Arnez J. has made television appearances on Comedy Central’s “Make Me Laugh,” Russell Simmons’ “Def Comedy Jam” and “Louie Anderson’s Comedy Showcase” among others.
