One of the Funniest Comedians, Arnez J, is Headed to Stardome April 25-27!


One of the funniest comics currently commanding the stage today, Arnez J. continues to evolve his unique style of comedic skills to new generations. Rapidly becoming one of the most talked about comedians, Arnez J's charisma and physical agility are unforgettable. With the physicality of Jim Carrey, his brand of comedy has dubbed him "the black Jerry Lewis."

On his own at age 14, Arnez lied about his age to get a job at a gas station to work his way through school. Arnez wanted to be a professional baseball player. A Philadelphia Phillies Farm League pursued him, but that fell through. It was later while working as a flight attendant that Arnez discovered his comedic talent. He realized that he had the ability to keep the passengers and crew laughing and upon encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand-up comedy. After that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do. He left his job with the airlines and made the decision to devote all of his time to a career in comedy.
The Harlem Globetrotters recruited Arnez after their scouts saw his very physical comedy routine and his local celebrity basketball game. However, Arnez suffered a minor knee injury that forced him to put his basketball career on hold. An Atlanta native, Arnez began working the comedy circuit in Georgia and quickly became one of "Hotlanta's" funniest newcomers. A finalist in the 1992 "Bay Area Black Comedy Competition," Arnez was immediately noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first television appearance on Showtime's "Comedy Club Network." Numerous television appearances soon followed including recent appearances on "The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show," "Louie Anderson's Comedy Showcase," Comedy Central's "Make Me Laugh," NBC's "Friday Night Videos," Russell Simmons' "Def Comedy Jam," his own BET "Comic View Grandstand Hour Special" and many others.

In keeping with his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace performing for sold out crowds in clubs, colleges and concert halls across the country. And most recently, he has accomplished something no other comic yet has done. Arnez has been asked by The Artist Formerly Known as Prince to perform as his opening act.

Arnez J will be here April 25 through 27 at the Stardome.

Quinn Dahle is in the House March 11-16

With appearances on The Tonight Show, Showtime, Comedy Central, Lopez Tonight and Carson Daly, Quinn is a smart, clean and witty stand-up comic with impeccable timing. He has worked with such names as Robin Williams, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Dane Cook, Dana Carvey, Norm McDonald, Jon Lovitz, Bill Maher, Frank Caliendo, David Alan Grier, John Witherspoon, Tommy Chong, John Pinette and Harland Williams.

Originally from Minnesota, Quinn has lived in Colorado and Arizona before settling in Los Angeles, California to pursue a career in comedy. He tours from coast to coast and has even entertained our troops as far away as Japan. Quinn’s comedy appeals to all age groups and ethnicities and he loves to talk about them all. Being married to a Mexican-American girl from east L.A., he is never short of material. However, audiences often come back just for his improvisational crowd work where he can be the most spontaneous.

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."

Quinn is currently developing a sit-com based on his life and looks forward to using the silver screen to further build his fan base.
