Quinn Dahle Returns to Stardome's Stage Oct. 14-19!

Quinn Dahle grew up in Minnesota, finished high school in Colorado and went to college in Arizona. He stepped onstage for the first time while attending Arizona State University and left soon after for the bright lights of Los Angeles. People in and out of the comedy business consider Quinn to be a smart, clean and witty stand-up comic with impeccable timing. Young Mr. Dahle is already working in clubs, colleges, casinos and corporate events. Quinn has worked with such names as Robin Williams, Drew Carey, Dana Carvey, Norm MacDonald, Jon Lovitz, Bill Maher, Frank Caliendo, David Alan Grier, Tommy Davidson, John Witherspoon, Tommy Chong, John Pinette and Harland Williams.

According to Quinn: "People told me I should do stand-up since I was a kid." And it just happens that this talented young man comes from a showbiz family. Mr. Dahle Sr. played in the band Copperhead and had an album out in the early 1970's. Mr. Dahle Jr. decided he would rather write jokes than songs. Never afraid to jump in feet first, Quinn looks out for his fellow comics and actually saved another comic's life once while on the road. "I was opening for some fat guy at a casino in Nevada early in my career. He was about 30 minutes into his act when he started choking on some rock salt from a shot of tequila. The room was packed with about 500 people and they thought it was a joke at first. Then he came backstage pointing to his throat. No one else knew the Heimlich so I gave it a try. I could barely get my arms around him because he was so big but it finally came up. He told me I saved his life but I just did what any hero would do."
The future is bright for Mr. Quinn Dahle and he aims to have industry people know his name. Projects in the works include touring his stand-up act, constantly writing new material and breaking into television and movies.  Quinn Dahle will be performing at the Stardome Oct. 14-19.

David Scott, the Midnight Swinger, is Swinging onto Stardome's Stage Oct. 7-12!

The Midnight Swinger David Scott Call him cocky, call him confident, but never call him dull. The Midnight Swinger erupts onto the stage like the volcano in front of the Mirage Hotel in a fresh and original, over the top event that has been called “sharp-witted,” “clever” and “classy.”
Putting the show back in showman, the Midnight Swinger combines the style and cool of a ’60s Las Vegas performer with the flash and excitement of a 21st century Super Bowl halftime extravaganza. More than just a stand-up comedian, the Midnight Swinger is proud to be called a throwback entertainer. That’s right, an entertainer!

The Swinger believes in more than just standing behind the microphone and telling jokes, and doing more than just a simple “comedy show.” The Midnight Swinger puts on a spectacle that leaves the audience LAUGHIN’, SINGIN’ and SWINGIN’. The Swinger always wears the sharpest threads no matter where he is performing, and stylin’ and profilin’ with an oversized pompadour. The Swinger will be the first to tell you, “Damn, I Look Good,” his battle cry before, during and after every show. The never subtle or soft spoken Midnight Swinger heats up the room as he puts on a classic Las Vegas style show filled with great comedy, music, singing and dancing. And when the show is over you will walkout with a smile on your face yelling DAMN I LOOK GOOD!

The Midnight Swinger has performed his show for presidents and CEOs of companies such as Rockwell, Burger King and John Deere, to mention a few. The Swinger prides himself on learning about the company or group and writing material specific for that event. “I believe personalizing the show makes it much more fun and enjoyable for everybody. Some entertainers will just do their show, which is fine for them, but I want people to be talking about my show for days after. One of the greatest rewards is when people come up to me wondering how I knew so much about the company and was able to write jokes just for them.”

One of the biggest concerns facing hiring an entertainer for a corporate event is: Will they be dirty, will they offend the people at the event? The Midnight Swinger has been entertaining for over thirteen years, performing for crowds as different as the late show in Las Vegas to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Indiana. “It’s important to me that everyone have a good time, but I believe you can be funny without having to resort to being dirty.”

The Midnight Swinger’s Vegas-style show is the perfect show for any corporate event or gathering. Professional and reliable are just a few of the words some have used to describe The Midnight Swinger. Funny and outrageous are the words people have used to describe his show. David Scott will be at the Stardome Comedy Club Oct. 7-12.

Dominique from the Chapelle Show is Coming to Stardome's Stage Oct. 3-5!

What is there to know about Dominique? Well, if you're interested in high - powered comedy, there is everything to know, from clubs across the country to Comedy Central's hit "CHAPELLE's SHOW" she's showing America what a comedienne is.

She began honing her skills unprofessionally as a civil servant on the nightshift as a postal worker at the now infamous Brentwood Postal facility in her native Washington D.C. "I knew something like that was gonna happen. I used to see all kinds of stuff that terrorist could use come through that post office. But that was back in the good ole' Timothy McVeigh days", she quips about the nation's anthrax scare. Boredom with the job and fear of going postal gave way to open mic nights at local clubs at the behest of friends and co - workers. She immediately gained a reputation for telling it like it is; raw and uncut and unknowingly garnered a loyal following. Washington's uppity audiences gravitated toward her mixture of politics, street culture and current events. Her strong presence and a bravado rarely seen in female comics quickly gained the attention of the producers of HBO's "Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam", the show that changed comedy forever. She went from shuffling mail to working with the likes of Chris Rock in no time. "I didn't do anything special. I just talked about what I knew and the next thing you know I'm on T. V. I quit that job and took about 20 books of stamps. I figured they owed me." She never looked back.

Sensing that she had outgrown DC's small comedy scene, she moved to the Bronx, which wasn't a far cry from the Southeast, and became a fixture at the clubs in New York City. Places like the "Comic Strip" and "Stand Up New York" served as testing grounds for her new material. On a chance Wednesday night at a small club on the lower eastside she met Saturday Night Live's Tracy Morgan who made Dominique his opening act for his run at Caroline's on Broadway Comedy Club. The two formed a friendship and have been working together ever since. Being Tracy's feature however wasn't enough to keep the bills paid so Dominique became what she calls a 'hustler', performing all over die country to make ends meet. From Caroline's in New York to The Improv in Miami to LA's Laugh Factory, and every club in between, Dominique has wowed audiences with her straight forward wit and comedic standpoint reminiscent of Mom's Mabley.

A run on the highly successful Def Comedy Jam Tour and numerous television appearances including the fresh new "Comic Groove" on Comedy Central, the legendary "Showtime at the Apollo" and the controversial "Comic View" on Black Entertainment Television prompted a move to Los Angeles. Upon arrival, Dominique began making the rounds in Hollywood's comedy clubs as well as the smaller lesser known clubs in LA. "I like telling jokes in mainstream clubs as well as underground spots cause it keeps me fresh no matter where I am". And fresh she is. She has become a club staple and continues to tour clubs and colleges around the country. Since 1998, Dominique has been a headliner on the RJE Comedy Cabaret Tour www.comediandepot.com, the largest and highest grossing college/ university based comedy tour. She has participated in Urban Internationals Comedy Arts Festival better known as Jamie Foxx's "laffapalooza" as well as the Don "DC" Curry's "Bay Area Comedy Competition" in Oakland. After Two (2) years of study, she added acting to her resume when she landed a part in the critically acclaimed indie "Thirty Years to Life".

These are the things to know about Dominique, she's a class act from stage to film, she's a woman with a strong point of view and a strong way of telling it and she's ready for whatever those in the know throw her way. Dominique will be coming to Stardome's stage Oct. 3-5.
