BOBBY WAYNE STAUTS

Though birthed in Mississippi, Bobby Wayne Stauts is not your average Southerner. Raised in a mechanic shop by a father that was addicted to drag racing and a mother that was addicted to women, Bobby was guaranteed to have a different take on the world. After his parents split, for obvious reasons, the days of his youth were shared between Georgia and Mississippi, crossing Alabama every single trip. By the time high school graduation came around, he'd had enough of the South and moved to Texas where he got married and opened a business building custom cars. After failing miserably at both, he loaded up three garbage bags full of clothes (fortunately, the ex was a nice enough lady to pack for him) and without rhyme or reason, headed West. Not sure where he was going or should go, Bobby decided to vanish into the mobs of tourists passing through Vegas. Shortly after settling in, a group of friends convinced Bobby that he should try his hand at Stand Up and in an attempt to prove them wrong, he agreed. Having headlined over 40 colleges and universities, appeared on a handful of major television networks and becoming a regular on the Las Vegas strip in just a few short years, it's hard to disagree with that group of friends. Make some time to check out Bobby Wayne Stauts. You'll never look at Southern folks the same after you do.

AK McMORRIS

Having performed all over the country and almost every casino on the Las Vegas Strip, AK McMorris has been making crowds laugh from the stage for just over 10 years. On top of her comedy career, she is a writer and has done movie scripts and several pilot episodes made for television. You might have caught her on the local FM station KCEP, Power 88.1 as a host on The Breakdown - airing every Wednesday night 6pm-8pm. When she's not busy writing, hosting, or making people laugh, AK gives back to the Las Vegas community through her own grass roots organization that provides clothes, hygiene products, food, and toys to ANYONE in need.

MATT MARKMAN

Matt was born in northern California. Growing up he moved around a lot including living two years in Athens, Greece. In his travels he visited several countries like Singapore, Italy, Turkey and France. His father's job landed him in Las Vegas in 1992, where he now lives. In high school Matt was struck with crippling social anxiety. He's tried everything to overcome it including medication, therapy, books and even hypnosis; however, none of them helped. It wasn't until March of 2004 that Matt took the stage at his first open-mic and started his slow and long road to conquer his anxiety and stumbled upon something he was born to do, make people laugh. He has a unique self-deprecating attitude and delivery which makes him a crowd favorite. Matt tackles a wide variety of subjects from failed relationships, his new marriage and his upbringing. He has appeared on FOX and "Man Up Stand Up" hosted by Adam Hunter. Matt is a rising star and will be one of your favorite comics once you see him.

BRANDON "GOOCH" HAHN

randon “Gooch” Hahn wears many hats. He is the afternoon on-air personality on KOMP 92.3 The Rock Station in Las Vegas, sex symbol, accomplished stand-up comedian, professional sandwich taster, role model, and he’s also the co-host of the best podcast in the Galaxy, ‘Rise To Offend’.
