Where do you begin the task of trying to describe Johnny Rizzo?  The elastic faces, the flopping limbs, the silly, googly eyes…he’s got you in stitches and he hasn’t even opened his mouth yet!  And once that happens, you’re gone.  At the end of the night, your face hurts – literally – from the constant laughter.  He has earned the nickname, “The Rubber-Faced Comedian.”

Originally hailing from Boston, Pat Ceasar now makes her home  in Montclair. She has appeared in NYC in a number of Off-Off Broadway shows and is a regular at The Broadway Comedy Club, where she appears twice a month and is a featured comic at The Duplex in the Village. She has been seen on LAW & ORDER: SVU and on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. She was also in the Academy Award winning film, MONSTER with Charlize Theron.

Traveling the world before he was out of high school, Brett Bickley honed his comedy chops in every corner of the globe. Central America, the Middle East, numerous European countries and Cleveland. he has been seen on Comedy Central, Late Night with David Letterman and has shared the stage opening for such bands a The Allman Brothers, Huey Lewis & The News and The Beastie Boys. Now making his home in northern New Jersey, he is occasionally able to slip free from the chains of suburban home life to perform in NYC at such venues as The Boston Comedy Club, Caroline’s and the Best Buy Theater in Times Square.
