Additional Show Dates :
Comedian Brad Williams has lived a true comic Cinderella story. Born with Achondroplastic dwarfism, Brad would endure countless taunts and gawks from classmates and random people on the street. Instead of crying about it, Brad turned to humor. He discovered that by making jokes about his condition, he could make other people comfortable and get laughs in the process. Stand-up was a logical step for Brad and he began hitting the local open mic nights. One night at a Carlos Mencia show, Carlos asked Brad if he wanted to do time. After his set, Mencia decided to bring Brad on the road with him as his opening act. Brad has been touring with Carlos ever since, even making a few appearances on The Mind of Mencia. Brads ability to make humorous observations that make everyone comfortable with difference is winning over audiences and proving that anyone can overcome their shortcomings.

Comedian Joshua Snyder FLAPPCAST, COMEDY STORE, FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB
Joshua Snyder grew up in beautiful and pastoral Colorado, where he did not participate in such activities as mountain climbing, rafting, spelunking, and power walking. His parents taught him that sex was a natural act, and that he should use his time in college to "have fun." (his parents are currently looking into adopting their own grandchildren).
Josh has gone on only three dates in his lifetime, and each ended as it began: with a skin rash.
Hobbies include tracking changes of hair style on the extras in Star Trek: The Next Generation, trying to cry, and crying.
The lure of Southern California's market research facilities could not keep Josh in Colorado. He currently works as a Client Service Representative, where he makes name tags, defends the dignity of the office printers, and shows clients how to use the coffee machine with only one button on it.
