By the age of six George Wallace wanted to be a comedian, but knew he first needed an education. He attended college at the University of Akron, Ohio. Upon graduating with degrees in transportation and marketing, George entered the advertising work force. Still, George’s dream of being a comedian had a strong hold on him. Within a week of leaving the advertising field, he began to perform stand-up comedy and was offered a job writing for “The Red Foxx Show.”

George won an American Comedy Award for “Best Stand Up Comedian” after being continually nominated four years in a row. George’s television credits include HBO One Night Stand, Hallmark’s movie Santa Jr. (2002), Seinfeld, The Parkers, Moesha, The Tonight Show, Oprah, Hollywood Squares, Late Show With David Letterman, Rosie O’Donnell, Live With Regis, Politically Incorrect, Entertainment Tonight, E! Entertainment, Extra and a guest-host on Later on NBC. As well as In The Heat Of The Night, Tall Hopes, The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, and Arliss. George also appeared in numerous films including Comedian, The Wash, Three Strikes, Little Nicky, A Rage In Harlem, Punchline, Postcards From The Edge, Batman Forever and Ladykillers.

Las Vegas loves their resident comedic headliner, but even more so, George loves Las Vegas in return. In 2004, George appeared as the headlining star of his own show at The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas for a 30 day run. “Sin City” showed its admiration by extending George’s contract indefinitely.

George’s most recognized material is his “Yo Mama” and “I Be Thinkin” jokes, which encourage audience participation. Every show George selects a few people out of the crowd to go one on one in a comical banter. George shows his gratitude to his audience by signing autographs and taking photos after every show.

Unlike any other comedy show in Las Vegas, George gives away a number of prizes every night including CD’s, DVD’s, diamond necklaces, dinners at prestigious restaurants, tropical cruises and even a new car. One of Wallace’s ongoing jokes is he plans on calling past audience members in the middle of the night…to let them know they have not won the car. You never know what will happen at the George Wallace show. You could end up on George’s radio show “Bits on the Strip” if you are caught by the George Wallace Street Team.

Wallace is an evolving comedian, which is why you will never see the same show twice. George is always thinkin’. Fans can now get a taste of what George be thinkin’ at his website

For One Night Only, The Punisher, CARLOS MENCIA!!

Carlos Mencia is undoubtedly one of today's most popular entertainers and comics. Whether it is man-on-the-street interviews, studio comedy, commercial parodies, nationwide sold-out tours, or films, Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience.

Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old, where he was raised in Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles, California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after, he successfully graduated from Garfield High School.

Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the comedy club, Laugh Factory. He later showcased at The Comedy Store and became a regular, performing nightly. After he found success on the L.A comedy circuit, Mencia was named "International Comedy Grand Champion" from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on "In Living Color," "The Arsenio Hall Show," "Moesha" and "An Evening at the Improv." In 1994, he hosted the HBO comedy series "Loco Slam" and in 1998 he hosted "Funny is Funny!" on Galavision. Mencia released a comedy album in 2000 called "Take a Joke, America" that showcased his brand of humor.

Mencia continued his journey up the comedy ladder by headlining "The Three Amigos" tour with Freddy Soto and Pablo Francisco in 2002, which sold out in record time around the United States. He was also featured in the independent films, "Outta Time" and "29 Palms" and starred in guest spots on "The Shield" and "The Bernie Mac Show," among others. In 2002, he received a CableACE
Award nomination for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special for his HBO special. That same year, Mencia was featured on "Comedy Central Presents." Mencia remained busy and after the success of his solo dvd, "Carlos Mencia: Not For The Easily Offended," "Mind of Mencia" went into development. The show was an instant hit and after the first season, Comedy Central signed Mencia back for his own original stand-up special, "Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached." The special was the first Comedy Central Stand-up Special DVD to achieve Platinum sales status.

"Mind of Mencia"
debuted on Comedy Central in early 2005. It became one of the strongest shows in the network's history, averaging about 1.5 million total viewers. "Mind of Mencia" was executive produced by Carlos Mencia and Robert Morton ("Late Night with David Letterman").

In the summer of 2007, Mencia starred opposite Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan in the Farrelly Brothers' hit feature film, THE HEARTBREAK KID (DreamWorks). In the fall of that year Mencia headlined a nationwide comedy tour titled "Carlos Mencia Live Presented by Bud Light." The highly anticipated tour brought Mencia face-to-face with his fans from September 2007 through December 2007. Shortly thereafter, Mencia taped a new comedy special for Comedy Central, "Carlos Mencia: Performance Enhanced," that aired in May 2008.

Since 2007, every holiday season Mencia has embarked on a USO Tour to the Persian Gulf to entertain the troops serving overseas. For his 2008 trip, Mencia visited Kuwait to host "Operation MySpace," an exclusive concert for American Troops in the Middle East alongside Jessica Simpson and The Pussycat Dolls. The special aired on FX in April 2008. Mencia's 2009 USO tour had stops in Turkey, Kirkuk, Baghdad, Qatar, Afghanistan, and many other countries.

In July 2008, Mencia began his tour, "At Close Range" at Red Rock Amphitheatre in Colorado. The tour was sponsored by Bud Light and co-promoted by Icon Entertainment and Live Nation. Larger than all of his previous tours, Mencia performed in 80 cities across the country. In the summer of 2009, he kicked off a nationwide comedy tour entitled "The Administration of Laughter" which brought him to excited audiences all around the country.

Mencia starred in the family comedy OUR FAMILY WEDDING (FOX Searchlight) alongside America Ferrara and Forrest Whitaker. The film was released to theatres nationwide on March 12th, 2010.

In the last couple years, Mencia chose to go back to his comedic roots, performing at a number of comedy stores throughout the country - allowing him to share his newest material with smaller and more intimate audiences. In addition to touring, Mencia is continuously writing material for television pilots and upcoming comedy specials.

SAVE UP!! Killer Beaz is coming to the Stardome!

Twenty-nine years of stage, television and radio and touring throughout the country, Killer Beaz - with his trademark “Save Up!” refrain- has become a familiar, beloved performer to millions of comedy fans nationwide. Born Truett S Beasley, Jr., Killer Beaz delivers edgy, high-energy “everyman”- style humor that appeals to a wide audience, selling out venues from Anchorage, Alaska to Miami, Florida.

With well over a hundred national television appearances, Beaz is a familiar face of comedy. Several nationally syndicated radio shows allow Beaz to entertain millions of his fans on a regular basis, through phone calls as well as in studio appearances. Beaz has a lengthy list of radio stations that request him to call in his “Beaz Reports”, keeping him very in touch with the fan-base he has and continues to build. Working with stations ranging from Alternative to Country, Beaz has something for everyone. Killer Beaz strives to be funny, without the need to be offensive. A gifted story teller, with tons of punch-lines, his shows are fast paced and fun! Beaz’s quick wit and mastery of the ad-lib ensure that at his shows, anything can happen. It’s easy to see that Beaz is in love with his art form.

"SAVE UP!", his latest release, is available now at,, and various nation-wide retail outlets.  In addition to the "Killer" stand up performance, the project includes two musical tracks. "Henpecked Hero", the first release to radio was co-written by Killer Beaz and country music artist, David Lee Murphy (Dust on the Bottle/Party Crowd). Rock and Roll icon, Ed King (Lynyrd Skynyrd) contributed the guitar parts, and the legendary Jimmy Hall (Wet Willie/Prisoners of Love) handled the lead vocals and harp duties. Needless to say, these tracks are "Smokin"!

SHAKEN NOT STIRRED, his first comedy project, distributed through the Compendia Distribution Group, is available at retail locations nation-wide. “We’re thrilled to have a talented performer like Killer Beaz,” said Walt Wilson, vice president/general manager of the Compendia Label. “Beaz has a huge fan-base nation-wide, so making his album readily available at retail was the next right step.”

Truett S Beasley, Jr., (“Thanks, Dad!”) got his start in show business playing blues guitar in Jackson, Mississippi. “Beaz, as his friends call him, played lead guitar. One night, while playing a solo, someone shouted. “That was killer, Beaz!” The name stuck. So, naturally, when he made the jump to comedy, he carried the name with him. And what a jump it was! Using intense desire and a belief that it was “meant to be” as a
springboard, Beaz started out at the best place possible ... the bottom!

Biker bars, pool halls, country music places, and blues rooms all make up a string of one night stands throughout the Delta, he fondly called “The Chitlin Circuit”. During his 317 performances in these trenches, Beaz’s “killer” stage presence was quite obvious. In 1984, Beaz traveled to Chicago on a business trip. Upon his arrival he heard about ZANIES Comedy Showplace, he skipped his meeting that evening and headed to check it out. Jay Leno was the headlining act that evening, and the first comedian Beaz had ever seen perform live. While Leno’s performance was awesome, Beaz was equally thrilled to discover that there were places that people came for the sole purpose of seeing stand-up comedy.

He left that evening with a renewed sense of direction. A few years later, he once again walked through the door of ZANIES Comedy Showplace, only this time, Beaz was the headlining act. He developed a great relationship with the people of ZANIES. Through the years, Beaz has the most stage time of any comedian on the ZANIES Nashville stage, so much so, that when they promote his shows there, they refer to ZANIES Nashville as “The House That Beaz Built!”

Beaz calls the show, "The feel good show of the season!" Maybe that is why Rolling Stone Magazine says of the show, "Beaz is ‘Killer’!" or why USA Today says he is a "Star rising in the South". With the release of the Killer Beaz album, "Save Up!", a new album in the works, and an upcoming video release in the Fall of 2009, Beaz continues to use his successful formula of high energy with universal appeal as one of the nations top comics touring theatres and large clubs throughout the country. “Save Up!” Find out more about this "King of Comedy!" as he is hailed by the Clarion-Ledger at, and don’t miss an opportunity to catch “The Best Buzz in Town”’ll be stung for life!!!

This Cowboy Promises Big Laughs and Has a Heart of Gold...

Comedian Cowboy Bill Martin has built a loyal following of fans from coast to coast the old fashioned way – by working the road.   The Texas native headlines all of the most prestigious clubs and theaters across the U.S. and Canada.  Martin has also toured with country music’s elite including George Strait, legendary singer, George Jones on an 18 city tour of Canada and was part of the CMT Most Wanted Live Tour with Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Chris Cagle.

Plus, the screenwriter/comedian just got back, not too long ago, from headlining a tour in the Middle East for our Armed Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan on the Red, White and a little Bluer Tour.  In addition, he dedicates one show a week to the Susan G. Koman Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness. 

But don’t let the name fool you.  Critic Punch Shaw of The Fort Worth Star Telegram says, "Martin is not your typical country-cowboy comic. There’s no talk about trailer parks or inbreeding. Sure he wears cowboy garb on stage and he speaks with a Texas accent but his comedy touches people of all cultures.  In performance, he’s apt to remind you of Gary Busey with an edge. That is especially applicable, when Martin flashes a toothy grin and gives a gee-whiz shrug of his broad shoulders."

When asked if he is a real cowboy, Martin said, “The only word I don’t like being called is a redneck and I will tell you why.  I was probably 9 years old and I came home crying.  I said, ‘daddy they were calling me a redneck at school.’  He said, ‘boy, you are a cowboy’.   I said, ‘what’s the difference?’  He said, ‘acreage!’”

Martin says while his humor is based on real life, he tries not to take himself too seriously.  But admits there are two spots in the show that he puts comedy aside for a brief moment and that is first, his dedication with his clothing provider, Ariat Western Wear to promote his Pink Out Cowboy Program for Breast Cancer Awareness and the Susan G. Koman Fund.  And second, for his support for our Armed Forces.

In nearly every performance; Martin toasts to the military. And although he has never served, Martin says he does so, not for a cheap applause break but because of a special Military coin that he carries in his right pocket on stage for every show.

Martin explains, "I was doing a show in Oklahoma City a couple of years ago and this kid, I say kid because he couldn't have been more than 22 years old, walks up to me and says, 'Hey Man, I want to give you something.'   And then he says to me, 'A buddy of mine and I went to elementary, middle school and high school together. We enlisted in the Marine Corp. on the same day, went to boot camp together and then got sent to Iraq together on the “Buddy Program.  And then he looked at me and said, ‘and I wanted you to know that he was killed 3 months ago and I haven't laughed since…until tonight, here at your show.' And then he handed me a gold recruiting Sergeant Majors coin and said, 'and I want to give you this recruiting coin because you gave me back the laughter."

And ever since then, Martin does not hit the stage without it.  Martin adds, "I want people to come to the show and have a great time.  Heck, I want them to laugh so hard they pee a little.  But in the end, that coin reminds me that no matter what life throws at you, laughter is still the key.”
