ABOUT Don Jamieson (Headliner)
“He’s a sarcastic, caustic rib-splitter who can wind up any audience and splatter them hysterically” – The Village Voice

Don is currently co-hosting VH1 Classic’s hit heavy metal talk show series, “That Metal Show” where legends of rock hang out to discuss their past and current projects in front of a live studio audience full of metal maniacs. Rolling Stone Magazine dubbed “That Metal Show” one of the 50 Best Reasons to Watch TV! He is also a co-host on “Beer Money,” a fast-paced, non-traditional sports quiz show airing on SNY (SportsNet New York). Amongst his many accomplishments, Jamieson’s stand-up CD “Live & Hilarious” on Metal Blade Records hit the Top 20 on iTunes and Top 10 on the Billboard comedy charts. He also recently performed stand-up at Metallica’s Orion Music + More Festival and was introduced by drummer Lars Ulrich. He is proudly sponsored by Monster Energy Drinks. Jamieson’s proudest moment is becoming an “Emmy Award-Winner” for his work on HBO’s “Inside The NFL.” Don and long-time comedy partner, Jim Florentine, lent their brand of humor to the popular sports show; writing, producing and performing sports-themed comedy sketches. The two have also collaborated on the hidden-camera DVD and Comedy Central web series, “Meet The Creeps” as well as a series of prank call CD’s, “Terrorizing Telemarketers,” which get a lot of airplay on the Howard Stern radio show. He is also a joke writer for the country’s best celebrity roaster, Lisa Lampanelli and has lent his voice to MTV2’s “Crank Yankers.” Don’s stand-up act brings his everyday take on life with an added dash of sarcasm for good measure. He’s able to make people laugh at things they wouldn’t normally laugh at and then laugh again at that realization. Besides performing at clubs in New York City, Don tears it up at clubs and theatres all over the country. For the last seven years, he has been the regular opener for Andrew Dice Clay.

ABOUT Mark Riccadonna
Mark Riccadonna is a professional comedian who is somewhat of specialist in reading audiences and making them feel comfortable. He has toured globally playing theatres and clubs as well as with the USO and Armed Forces Entertainment (which landed him his Travel Column “Dad Trippin” in Today’s Man Magazine). Over ten years of touring Mark found time to thrive as an on-air host for talk radio out of Atlantic City, performed in an Off Broadway hit “Happy in the Poor House”, did three films in three years; “The Devils Tree”, “The Days of Power” and “Game Night” (winner of Best Director at The International Film Festival). Mark worked as a voice-over actor, and directed the play “The Boom” for the NYC Dream Up Festival and Now is Directing in a pilot he co-wrote called “Radio Gods” with Paul Provenza, John Fugelsang, Rich Vos and Rick Overton. Because of his attitude, he is considered fun, lovable, and easy to work with, landed him shows on FOX, MTV, SPEED network, SPIKE TV, The CW, NBC and The Food Network and a contributing writer for “Weekend Update”. Mark is a gifted storyteller, with a charisma that makes you feel like you’ve known him forever, unique delivery, signature voice and likability; you will see why he is a favorite at clubs and theatres everywhere.

ABOUT Jesse Thomas
Since 2007, Jesse Thomas has established himself as a solid working comedian. He is fast becoming a comedy standout, opening sold out shows for comedians such as Jim Breuer, Tom Arnold, and Jim Norton. In 2009, Jesse performed at the popular Brew Ha-Ha Comedy Festival in Cincinnati, Ohio. He’s smart, but not overly intellectual. He’s crude, but not distasteful. In a nutshell, he’s the cleanest dirty comic there is.  Some say Jesse Thomas was born without an inner monologue.  Some say he was just born without shame.  The truth is Jesse’s unabashed honesty allows him to effortlessly discuss a variety of topics, both taboo and mundane.  Jesse is able to point out flaws in the world around him by way of pointing out flaws in himself.  Jesse isn’t perfect, but reminds audiences across the country that perfection is overrated.  The truth is whatever people say is close enough.
