There might be only one chromosome that separates us, but that makes all the difference in the galaxy. Individually, you’ve seen these comics on Comedy Central, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” Howard Stern, casinos and corporate events, but you’ve never seen them square-off and go toe-to-toe to settle once and for all who is funnier, the lads or the ladies. Be there as Kerri Louise, Bob DiBouno and Joe Currie take the stage for evening full of gut-busting laughter hosted by Hartford’s own Claudia Stavola.

Artist Bio

Kerri Louise Bio:  High-energy, commanding and versatile—but enough about her sex life—Kerri Louise can entertain any audience with her warmth and razor-edge wit. So it’s no wonder that Kerri was a regular correspondent on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Because of that, Kerri was asked to be on the very first episode of The Dr. Oz Show. NBC took Kerri all the way to the finals in the show Last Comic Standing. Her performance on that show prompted The Women’s Entertainment Network to make her the star of their new reality show call “TWO FUNNY”. Kerri’s guest appearances include Comics Unleashed, The Montel Show, The Fine Living Channel. NBC’s Access Hollywood, The Apprentice, ABC’s The View, Comedy Central, VH1, 20/20, and New Joke City. These credits plus her appearance in the Marie Claire Magazine, the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and the Montreal Comedy Festival has made Kerri an attraction.

Bob DiBouno

Bob DiBouno Bio:  Bob DiBouno has established himself as one of the most dynamic acts on stage. With a sarcastic and edgy with coupled with a high energy and animated delivery, he exposes the absurdities in life, his family and the social conscious.

The versalitiy of being able to go in and out of original characters along with dead-on impersonations heightens this unique act!

Bob DiBouno has appeared on MTV, E!, CNN FOX’S RED EYE, GOOD DAY BY, OPIE AND ANTHONY and the BOB AND TOM radio show. He is currently a regular on the JIM BREUR Unleashed on SIRIUS and has been seen in numerous TV commercials.

Bob currently is based out of NYC and headlines around the country.

Joe Currie Bio: My story and I am sticking to it...

I was like any other twelve year kid growing up on Long Island, till one day my buddy played me his Brother’s George Carlin and Cheech and Chong albums and that set the wheels in motion. 

My first gig was making the girls laugh in Elementary school doing Richard Nixon imitations from there the act has evolved( thank god because imitations are kind of hacky).but the thrill I got from that was like no other.

From then on I did several gigs at the camp fire when I was in the Boy scouts and a few Youth Development league shows to boot but I had no partners in crime to be a moron with. 

That changed in my sophomore year in high school when my buddy Joe told me to hang out with his brother who just came in from California, his name was Anthony Cumia of Opie and Anthony fame, still one of my close friends till this day we both live to make each other laugh our asses off.

Joe Currie

During this period in time I picked up my nick name ”Plankfoot” when I was stomping my size thirteen Herman survivor boot in my buddies garage to the Marshall Tucker Band and my buddy Alex stopped everyone and pointed out that dust was flying out from under my foot, like a plank being dropped. Thirty five years on and the name still sticks if you ever hear Foot mentioned on O & A that would be you know who. Meanwhile Anthony and I thought that nobody could share our bond of stupidity, then one day a coworker told me his buddy was starting work with us the next day. That following day this guy had me in stitches, we wrote eight bits and we got absolutely no work done, when I saw Anthony that night I told him he had to meet this new guy at work, Adam Ferrara. The three of us knew what we wanted to do but no clue how to do it, then one day in nineteen eighty eight Adam went to the East Side Comedy Club and got a date at an open mike night and never looked back.

A little while later in nineteen eighty nine I followed suite at Governor’s Comedy Club, my set (which was first time god awful) consisted of me making fun of my ex girlfriend that I just broke up with. By sheer coincidence she happened to be there on a first date with her new boyfriend having no clue I was there, or performing which added to the magic of the night.

In nineteen ninety two the wheels ground to a halt. I to had put comedy aside to concentrate on a record deal with my band Rotgut, I then lost my mentor and my hero, after retiring for less than two months my Mom past away suddenly. The next five years we pushed the band, Anthony hooked up with Greg Opie Hughes to start one of the greatest shows on radio, The Opie and Anthony show. In January nineteen ninety seven I started the comedy machine back up again and never looked back. I have made a lot of great friends, met a lot of great people and have played clubs from New York to Canada. As for the present, I am honored to be a partner in crime with Davin and the lovely Pip Helix on the Davin’s Den Radio show My two other labors of love are my bands, Rotgut, Race Odyssey, and Mr. Potato head, and my screen play “The Weight of the World” with my partner Camille Halpin. In addition if I decide to forgo sleep I will be working on my movie project The Trailer Queen Diaries as well. 

Well folks you have just read my past and present, I hope you will join me along for the ride as I write my future.

Claudia Stavola Bio: Bios written in the third person are douchey (if I wrote this in the third person I wouldn’t be able to use made up words like “douchey”). Would it really matter if I grew up the daughter of a patent lawyer, or an immigrant seamstress with limited English but limitless love? Would my star be rising if potential fans believed that I’d been keeping people “in stitches” since age five doing impressions of Merv Griffin at family get-togethers? If the answer is “yes”, then all of those things are 100% true and valid to the best of my recollection.

Coming from a family of irrational lunatics, and having low self-esteem (but not low enough to strip)—I realized that I’d rather laugh than cry…and that lots of Catholic women marry closeted gay men (What? Where did that come from?).

I think like a guy, I joke like a guy, and I look like an x-ray when my shirt’s off. My comedy does not aim to please or offend any particular group. It’s comedy for people who just “get it”. My inspiration comes from never fitting in, disdain for peoples’ robotic interests in life (religion, Two and a Half Men, buffets), and super-white white people. They’re the ones who laugh extra loud and nod their heads furiously at “African-American” comedians to show their solidarity and ability to relate (even though they can only understand every fifth word spoken). They’re also the people who gasp in horror when somebody uses the word “fat” to describe a co-worker…the same co-worker that said white person never e-vites to happy hour because “I didn’t realize she wasn’t in my contacts list”.

In addition to performing all over the East Coast, I also VERY briefly co-hosted the radio show “What’s Your Problem” with veteran comedians Rev. Bob Levy and Eric McMahon. Other credits include a role in a national TV commercial for retailer AJ Wright. Although not meant to be comedic, it’s my most humorous role to date due to the horrifying attire and wig-like hair I was sporting at the time.

My greatest accomplishments thus far are never having a desire to own a Coach, Louis Vuitton, or Gucci pocketbook; and never having seen Meredith Baxter-Birney or Nancy McKeon domestically abused in a Lifetime for Women movie
