DENNIS BLAIR - Dennis Blair is a true Renaissance man. He is an accomplished screenwriter, award-winning songwriter and comedic actor. Yet he is probably best known for the caustic observations and musical satires of his live comedy performances.
Early in his career, Rodney Dangerfield made him his protégé, and together they toured the United States and Canada for over three years. Dennis conceived and co-wrote Rodney’s hit movie, “Easy Money”, and also played two cameo roles. He co-wrote and was a featured actor in two Dangerfield specials on ABC, and was creative consultant for the album “Rappin’ Rodney”. The title song (which he co-wrote) was nominated for a Grammy Award.
His post-Rodney career has seen him opening for a multitude of celebrities such as Tom Jones, The Beach Boys, Garry Shandling, Joan Rivers, Gloria Estefan, Jackie Mason, and George Carlin, with whom he toured for over eighteen years. He appeared on “The Tonight Show” several times. He won an Emmy Award for both writing and voiceovers for the animated film “Confessions of a Standup”. He has a book, “Me First”, about his experiences opening for some of the most famous celebrities in show business. He has released two standup comedy CD’s, “Live Performance Anxiety”, and “Words, Music and Drunks” as well as an album of original songs called “I Sleep Naked in the Rain”. He has also dabbled in theater, starring in Los Angeles in his self-penned, one-man musical comedy entitled “Also Appearing…”, about the ups and downs of his career as an opening act. And his new screenplay, “The Money Trail”, is being optioned by a production company in Hollywood.
JOHN CHARLES - Audiences wail with laughter at JC’s lament of lost love & new hope. A thirty-something with a penchant for big ideas and broken relationships, JC brings his own signature brand of slacker- chic mentality to his comedy performances.
