Bob’s football routine is a recognized comedy classic and “Morning”, his tale of a farmer and a duck, is one of the finest works of one man showmanship to grace the modern stage. If all that were not enough, Bob’s ability to relay personal stories and observations about everyday life put him in the same league as the best of today’s stand-up comics. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. Throughout his career Bob Nelson has been hailed as one of the most gifted funny people on the planet.

Actor & Comedian Jimmy Shubert Comes to the Stardome August 1-3

Jimmy Shubert has built an impressive resume as an actor, both in film and on television. As a comedian, he is recognized as one of the busiest comedians working today, headlining A list comedy clubs, casinos and theaters across the country. His hour-long stand-up comedy special which just won top ten comedy DVD’s by Punchline Magazine, and it’s available on itunes!

“Alive N’ Kickin’” is a theatrical presentation of Shubert’s stand-up persona of a blue collar working man’s man. He combines the outlook of a modern-day Archie Bunker with an utterly real world sensibility to create signature bits on Starbucks, airport security, relationships and the dumbing down of America. – soon to be seen on a premium cable network.

In television, Shubert is known for his recurring role on “King of Queens” for five years and several appearances on “Entourage”. Jimmy has a wide range as an actor and has played everything from a prison guard in a hostage crisis to a murder victim on “Monk.” He’s worked with such marquee names as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Katie Holmes, Robin Williams. He says: “One of the great things about working in movies is I get a chance to work with A-list filmmakers.” It is another medium that allows you to be creative in a whole other way. On the small screen, He recently did a guest star on ABC’s “Back in the game” with James Caan on the CBS comedy “2 Broke Girls”, He played Betty Whites neighbor in a new NBC show called “ Off Their Rockers” He recently appeared on Disney’s hit show “Zeke and Luther” as Bobby Dicey”-World’s Greatest Daredevil, and “Barely Legal” a pilot presentation about a dysfunctional family law firm, other TV credits include ” “Heist,” “The Loop,” “ER,” “Reno 911,” “Rude Awakenings,” “Angel,” “Lucky,” “New Car Smell,” “Sonny with a chance” and “Youth In Revolt.”

Jimmy started performing right out of high school in comedy clubs around the Philly area. He later moved to Los Angeles and started working at the Comedy Store. It was at the Comedy Store where he later met Sam Kinison, and after taking him offstage on a Motorcycle at the Comedy Store’s Main room in front of a packed house, they became fast friends. Kinison liked Shubert’s cockeyed chutzpah and included him as one of the original “Outlaws of Comedy” which he toured with for five years, playing major casinos in Las Vegas and other venues like the Universal Amphitheater in front of audiences as large as 6,500 people. In 1997, after a well-recognized performance at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, he was spotted by the late Brandon Tartikoff, who signed Jimmy to a holding deal to develop a pilot sitcom for him to star in at 20th Century Fox, which led to another holding deal and then finally a Pilot.
Jimmy’s comedy routine is usually performed with an observational point of view, in comedic short-story form, and typically focuses on poking fun at pop culture. As AllMusic.com put it, “His confidence and lucid delivery enhances his humor, making even his most perverse moments hilarious.”
Jimmy will be at the Stardome August 1-3.

My Wife & Kids Actor/Comedian, Damon Wayans Coming to Stardome June 27-29!

Damon Wayans was born September 4, 1960, in Harlem, New York, as the third of ten children. His parents, supermarket manager Howell Wayans and social worker Elvira Wayans, were strict Jehovah's Witnesses. Because of their faith, Wayans and his nine siblings were not allowed to associate with other children in their neighborhood. Instead, the family found ways to entertain each other—usually through comedy.

Wayans started his standup-comedy career in 1982, eventually landing a role in Eddie Murphy's Beverly Hills Cop (1984) and in his brother Keenen's film, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka (1984). Damon's successful film career helped him land a role on the TV sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live in 1985. Wayans left the show after only a year in order to pursue more film projects, including Hollywood Shuffle (1987), Roxanne (1987) with Steve Martin, and Punchline (1988) with Tom Hanks.

In 1990, Wayans experienced a new level of fame as a member of his brother Keenen's new sketch comedy show In Living Color. He stayed on the show for only two years, but during that time he popularized characters such as Blankman, who later became the inspiration for a full-length feature film in 1994, and Homey D. Clown.

In 2001, Damon starred on the TV series My Wife and Kids, which earned him critical acclaim and lasted for four years. Since then, he has been involved in a series of projects including voiceover work for Farce of the Penguins (2006) and a sketch comedy show on Showtime called The Underground (2006).
He currently lives in Beverly Hills, California. Damon will be performing at the Stardome Comedy Club June 27-29.

Last Comic Standing Judge, Russell Peters, Will be at Stardome June 13-15!

Russell Peters, a Canadian Comedian, began performing in Toronto in 1989. His popularity extends to several countries, as he has since also performed in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Afghanistan, Sweden, South Africa, India, Caribbean countries, Philippines, Vietnam, China, Sri Lanka, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Jordan, Denmark, Norway, Lebanon, Oman, the Netherlands and Malaysia, among other places.

In 1992, Peters met comedian George Carlin, one of his biggest influences, who advised him to get on stage whenever and wherever possible. He said he "took that advice to heart, and I think that's the reason I am where I am now." In 2007, 15 years later, he hosted one of Carlin's last shows before his death the following year.
Peters attributes a performance he did on the Canadian TV comedy show Comedy Now! in 2004, which was uploaded onto YouTube and became viral, as the turning point in his career. While the initial video upload featured his performance in its 45-minute entirety, subsequent videos uploaded by other YouTube users were snippets of that performance, chopped into each of the cultural groups he targeted. According to Peters, those snippets made their way to those specified cultural groups, and were well received by them. The video and its viral nature was referenced by Peters on the DVD performance of his show Outsourced, when he entered and jokingly addressed the audience with "Look at you, you filthy downloaders!”

Russell Peters' stand-up performances feature observational comedy, where he uses humor to highlight racial, ethnic, class and cultural stereotypes. He often refers to his own life experiences growing up in an Anglo-Indian family. He impersonates various English accents of different groups in his act to poke fun at each group. As Peters told an audience in San Francisco, "I don't make the stereotypes, I just see them." Peters uses his minority status to allow him to poke fun at different races in his performance but, according to a 2006 interview with The National, he does not intend to put down or offend different races and cultures; he tries to raise them up through humor.

Peters is widely known for his punchlines, "Somebody gonna get a hurt real bad." It ends a joke he tells about his childhood with a traditional Indian father, who used corporal punishment on his sons. Another punchline he utilizes is "Be a man! Do the right thing!” which details a story of a Chinese man trying to get him to pay more for an item at a shop.

Russell Peters will be at Stardome Comedy Club June 13-15.
