Known for his quick wit and caustic-style of comedy, Eddie Ifft has a habit of speaking first and thinking later and this gets him in trouble – a lot. Having been fired from most jobs, including a short stint at his father’s insurance firm (he was either fired or asked to pursue a new career – depending on who you ask) Eddie took to the stage in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at an open-mic night and realised he was being paid to mouth off…and so his career began.

Michael Pace came on to the comedy scene with a mullet, an oversized jacket, a skinny tie and a pair of untied high-tops. Now? The jacket is too small, neck-ties drive him crazy and he’s finally learned to tie his shoes. Michael started on stage in improvisational comedy. Mike also studied theatre and developed a deep passion for both acting and comedy. He is proud to say that he is a professional stand-up comedian who has made his living on stage for the last 20 years. During his comedic tenure, Mike has developed several hours of hilarious stand-up material. Michael has been seen on Curb Your Enthusiasm and has made several commercials and independent films as an actor.

From packing comedy venues across the globe to regular television appearances on shows like “The Tonight Show,” and “Last Comic Standing,” Claude Stuart has come a long way from his down home southern roots. By his own admission, he was paddled on more than one occasion for being the class clown.Claude’s explosive, in-yourface, rapid-fire, madman stage style is truly an exhilarating assault on the senses and has evoked comparisons to golden era physical comedians such as Steve Martin, Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. Claude’s unique brand of Don Rickles-esque crowd interaction, coupled with clever well-written jokes makes him not only the world’s first physical insult comedian but a “comedy triple threat!”
