The Performing Arts and Leadership Series proudly presents The Good Humor Men at the North Iowa Community Auditorium on the NIACC campus at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 19th, 2019. This presentation is part of the 2018-2019 Performing Arts and Leadership Series.
Three of America’s funniest stand-up comedians (with numerous appearances on The Tonight Show, The Late Show, and The Daily Show) join forces to showcase their original brand of humor in an evening packed with punchlines, devilishly clever writing, and hair-trigger laughs. Good humor and a great night out!
Showtime declared Pat Hazell one of the five funniest people in America. His 30 years of experience as a writer, producer, and director have made him a go-to guy for new American theater. Pat is one of the original writers for NBC’s Seinfeld, a veteran of The Tonight Show, a critically acclaimed playwright and a contributing commentator to National Public Radio. He is recognized for his genuinely funny Americana humor and his salute to nostalgia. As a playwright, Pat’s first endeavor, Bunk Bed Brothers, was optioned by Columbia Pictures, then gained the attention of the TV industry and was filmed as the sitcom, American Pie, for NBC. Hazell’s signature work The Wonderbread Years is a grand salute to the baby-boomer generation.
Pete Lee was the first standup comedian to get a standing ovation on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Pete’s joyful humor comes from his Midwestern roots. Raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, he was destined to pursue a career in entertainment. In 2005, Pete flew to New York to make his debut on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and never left. In 2008, Pete made his network television debut performing first on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, finishing as a semi-finalist. Currently, Pete is a cast member on truTV’s Greatest Ever and he hosts his own segment on Nickelodeon’s Nick Toons. He is a regular on Comedy Knockout and Roast Battle.
Tony Deyo is a stand-up comedian known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. New York City’s Village Voice calls him “one of the tightest joke writers in the business.” In 2013, he made his late night television debut on Conan. Within a year, he added appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Gotham Comedy Live, and Comics Unleased with Byron Allen. His latest album, Comedy Road Trip, landed on the Billboard Magazine comedy chart and debuted as the #1 selling stand-up album on iTunes.
