Location: The Loony Bin
Category: Comedy
AJ Finney

Stylistically manic, artistically brilliant, AJ Finney is an eclectic Mid-Westerner with a passion for the 60’s psychedelic scene. Comedy, Jam Bands, and Volkswagens that’s him, he’s like an Eco-Friendly, improvisational, sometimes philosophical, patchouli soaked quipster. AJ’s organic approach is refreshing, and his poetic stream of consciousness makes for a colorful and unforgettable comedic experience. His audience much like the deadheads are finding him through new and creative venues such as music festivals, Head shops, and Record stores. In 2015 AJ joined T.J. Miller on his "Meticulously Ridiculous" Tour, In 2014 AJ was crowned The “Best of the Mid-West” winner at Gilda’s Laugh Fest, was featured on FOX’s television show “Laughs”, and was one of the 100 Chosen for Season 8 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. In 2013 he was a Simi- finalist in Comedy Central’s “Up Next”, as well as a finalist in the 2011 San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He was voted “Best in Fest” at the 2011 Detroit Laugh Fest, and was a finalist in HBO’s Lucky 21 Comedy Competition.

AJ's an effective and engaging story teller. He’s got rhythm that pulls you quickly into his world, and you'll laugh until you leave. Then later you'll laugh again. With a childlike curiosity about the world around him, and a writing style that ranges from T.V. ready to wildly inappropriate, you can be sure that an evening with AJ Finney is an evening not to be missed!

Danny Keaton

Stand up Comedian and syndicated writer for the Los Angeles Post-Examiner www.lapostexaminer.com/author/DannyKeaton

Danny Keaton is a comedian from Fort Worth, Texas, who now lives in Los Angeles and tours comedy clubs nationwide.

Adopted at a young age and with a stuttering problem in grade school, Danny began overcoming obstacles early in life, including the racism of being Hispanic in a small redneck Texas town. He joined the Army after high school and pursued a career in radio broadcasting (not bad for a kid who used to stutter). After his father’s death and a failed marriage, Danny’s life took a downward spiral. As a cheap form of therapy and on a dare, he went on stage amateur night at a local comedy club—Danny was hooked!

Starting out in Dallas comedy clubs, New Orleans, and Austin, Danny Keaton continues to bring his own distinctive style to the many stages of comedy across the country. From his military anecdotes to his comedic attacks on religion and conservatism, Danny’s humor jabs directly at the many ironies of society’s structure. His comedy takes on American pop-culture, mainstream media, and reality TV. He talks about online dating and even delivers personal tips on cougar-dating!

Current highlights include opening for Tommy Chong, appearing with Danny Bonaduce, and earning Canada’s Comic Video of the Month from Yuk-Yuk’s International Stand Up Comedy Clubs. Danny is becoming a regular at The Comedy Store in Hollywood and recently has added acting to his career with roles from reality TV to feature films.

Category: Comedy
Tony Tone aka Tony Luewellyn is a veteran comedian/actor who for the last 17 years has set the mood for continuous entertainment with his mastery of impressions and real life humor. Tony Tone has appeared on HBO's “Def Comedy Jam,” BET’s “Comic View,” Byron Allen’s "Comics Unleashed” and more. He has also shared the stage with other respected comedians including Bill Bellamy, Dave Chapelle, Eddie Griffin, Steve Kravitz, Adele Givens, Steve Harvey, John Witherspoon and Bob Zany. For the last three years Tony Tone served as Ringmaster for the historic UniverSoul Circus, also known as “Hip-Hop Under the Big Top,” allowing him to showcase his comedic talents to an entire new audience. The New York Times raved about Tone’s performance declaring, “he delivers ad libs…that a lesser professional would milk too hard.” From the moment Tony Tone’s spontaneous personality steps on stage, all eyes are on him, the laughter begins and is never ending. Anything from anecdotes of family members, playing out the roles of the good ol' boys, to the impressions of familiar household names, Tony is the cutting edge of comedy. There is truly no adjective to define his unique style. Rated Soft. R.
