ANDREW DICE CLAY is proud to be one of America’s most controversial and outrageous comics. And it’s that persona that has made him a Rock and Roll, Comedy Legend. Dice’s rise to fame was nothing less than meteoric, creating “Dicemania”. He became the first comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row, as well as sporting arenas all across the country. Dice has released numerous best-selling DVDs (No Apologies and Dice Rules!) and a string of multi-gold and platinum selling CDs (The Day The Laughter Died and Face Down, Ass Up). Dice also starred in several one-hour HBO, pay per view and Showtime stand-up specials including: The Diceman Cometh and Indestructible. In recent years, Dice’s career has experienced a resurgence. In 1992, Dice performed in front of the largest audience ever by a comedian at that time, when he shared the stage with Guns & Roses at the Rose Bowl and most notably for his recurring role on the final season of Entourage, when he starred to great critical acclaim alongside Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl and most recently in the award winning, blockbuster hit, A Star Is Born. His other notable TV credits are The Celebrity Apprentice, where he is proud to have been the first celebrity thrown off the show that season and his Showtime series, for two seasons, called Dice, which was very loosely based on his own life.

Every idea on Steve-O’s Bucket List was so ill-advised, he never expected to go through with any of them. Until it was time to prepare for this tour. Not only are the stunts more ridiculous than what you already know Steve-O for, he did them all, and made a highly XXX-rated, multimedia comedy show out of them. Not for kids, or for the faint of heart. Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) was willing to do whatever it took to become famous, even if it meant stapling his ball sack to his leg.After failing miserably at the University of Miami, Steve-O was a homeless couch-surfer for three years before he attended Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College, to help further his goal of becoming a famous stuntman. His relentless attention-whoring ultimately led to working with Johnny Knoxville on a stunt-based reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season of JACKASS in 2000. Since then, Steve-O has had continued success, as a New York Times best-selling author with the release of his memoir, ‘Professional Idiot’, and he has established himself as a force in the world of stand-up comedy. He’s thrilled to be releasing his new, profoundly multimedia, and wildly explicit comedy special, direct to his fans at steveo.com. It’s called “Gnarly”, for good reason. Across his social media platforms, Steve-O has amassed well over 31 million followers and counting, providing an intimate window into his continued antics and colorful life with his finacee, Lux. He’s also got a weekly podcast called Steve-O’s Wild Ride! with amazing guests which have included Demi Lovato, Shaquille O’Neal, Ronda Rousey, David Dobrik, Tony Hawk, and more. Steve-O has never stopped being wild and crazy, but he’s definitely evolved. He’s been clean and sober for over twelve years now, and developed a genuine love for animals (including the four dogs, two cats, and three goats he and Lux have rescued). Steve-O and Lux have plans to start their own animal sanctuary. https://www.steveo.com/IN ORDER TO ATTEND THE SHOW YOU MUST BE 18+

MATURE AUDIENCESWhat makes Valby so unique and entertaining is his uncommon rapport with the audience and his ability to mix his musical talent with a mad-cap variety of “Dirty Ditties”. Few people can resist laughing at songs that would have earned them a mouthful of soap when they were children. Valby’s repertoire is composed of popular songs, limericks, classical arrangements and his own original creations. Valby has made a career out of poking fun at his audiences, stretching the limits of free speech and accepted good taste and satirizing current events from behind the piano.When he’s not playing and singing, he yells obscenities: the audience yells back and everyone has a good time. The best way to describe John Valby is to blend the following performers together. Allen Sherman, Spike Jones, Lenny Bruce and Wierd Al Yankovic all topped off with the Dirt of Redd Foxx.
