Steve SaboThe Caffeinated Voice of Reason – Edgy, Angry, Honest, Hilarious!

Slowing down is not in Steve Sabo’s vocabulary. Tirelessly working the road an astonishing 52 weeks a year, this comedy road warrior brings laughter and joy over the nation, and beyond. No stage is too big or too small; he has performed for crowds as large at 5,000 and as small as two. First hitting the comedy stage straight out of high school at 18, he has honed his craft at comedy clubs, dirty bars, shiny casinos, military bases, cruise ships, colleges, corporate shows, fundraisers, restaurants and even a backyard to two. His comedy has universal appeal, and his experience shows it.

In his 23 years as a performer, he has had the privilege of sharing the stage with comedy legends such as Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Kevin James and Tom Green. He has made television appearances on HBO, NBC, E! and Comedy Central and can be heard regularly on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and has appeared on the nationally syndicated “Sex Talk Live” and “The Jiggy Jaguar Show.”

An admitted workaholic, Sabo has released four full length comedy albums including 2009’s “A Mouthful of Sea-Monkeys” which was considered “One of the top ten comedy albums of 2009” according to the Serious Comedy Site.

Known among his peers as a consummate professional and a comedy chameleon, he has the ability to adjust his act to his environment. Whether the situations calls for a clean show, a dirty show or something in between, he has the experience and material to satisfy any crowd. Considered adult-friendly and intelligent, his honest and observational style, tipped with a high energy and frenetic pace, has made him a fan favorite from coast to coast.

You may have never heard of him, but you’ll always remember him!

No props, No guitar. No magic tricks. No juggling balls … just a man and a microphone … with ATTITUDE to spare!

Johnny Dam has been performing comedy ever since he could utter a sentence. As the resident class clown, he deprived his fellow students of any semblance of a public education all in the name of comedy. They still haven’t thanked him.

A native of Los Angeles, Johnny began his actual comedy career out of necessity in December of 1991 because he couldn’t afford therapy. Since then he has toured the U.S., Canada, and traveled into war zones to entertain the troops. When asked if he did the latter out of some sense of patriotic pride, Johnny will simply say he wanted to finally serve those who serve his country, and he’s pretty sure that had he actually enlisted in the military when he was 18, he’d be getting out of Leavenworth right about now.
