Host/MC Dave Reinitz THIS AMERICAN LIFE, BBC, TRAVEL CHANNEL, KPFK,
Dave´s unique perspective and sarcasm gives us a hilarious hour of stand-up comedy that won´t soon be forgotten. Taking nothing for granted Dave challenges "normal" beliefs and expectations. He finds humor wherever common sense is in jeopardy, such as the prescription drug industry, in ordering a simple cup of coffee and genetically engineered food "of course the bugs won´t eat it , it taste like crap". Like a modern day minimalist Robin Hood, Dave steels small things from big companies, not just to get even but to feel even. Well-traveled and semi educated, Dave appeals to the smart and silly sides of the audience. Raised by 1960s radicals in upstate New York, Dave lists George Carlin, Bill Maher, and John Stewart as artistic influences. MYSPACE | BOOK
Deven Green (from the Arctic of Canada) and Joel Bryant (from the trailer parks of New Mexico) met in 1998 and knew, because of their intense training and individual uniqueness, that their comedy duo would be successful. Together they won "Best Of The Fest" at the First International Hollywood Comedy Festival and were selected for the Bass Red Ale Comedy Tour. As comedy hosts of "Survival of the Funniest," "Uncle Clyde's Comedy Contest," and as the house comedy duo at Flappers Comedy Club in both Burbank and Claremont, they secured their position as "The Comedy Duo to Watch!"
