Peter Bales, who studied at Chicago’s famous Second City, has appeared as a stand-up comedian at countless comedy clubs, corporate functions, and colleges across the country. He has appeared on numerous television networks including Fox, A&E, Comedy Central, Lifetime, MTV, VH-1, and on XM Satellite Radio. Bales also has hosted his own radio program on WABC in New York City. A professor of history at Queensborough Community College of the City University of New York, Bales has worked as a writer/researcher for the History Channel and teaches a comedy class for aspiring comedians known as Stand-Up University.
Matt Burke, a 25-year veteran of the stage, has been described as “sarcastic, cynical, mourning our cultural devolution, devoutly contrarian.” He has appeared on numerous television shows including “The Showtime Comedy Club Network,” “Comedy Central’s Stand Up, Stand Up,” and A&E’s “Comedy on the Road.” He also has worked as a writer for the Late Show with David Letterman. Some critics have called him an “heir to the throne of the great thinkers of the trade.”
Steve Lazarus began a career in comedy in 1995 after working for five decades as a beer man at Yankee Stadium. He has shared the stage with Robert Klein, Kevin James, and Ray Romano. In his tell-all book, “The Pope and Me at Yankee Stadium,” he reveals how he leaves fans rolling in the aisles in both places. A lifelong Yankee fan, Lazarus was born in The Bronx, saw his first game in 1965, and seemingly never left.
