Warren B. Hall is a full-time stand-up comedian who has worked every major comedy club in the United States. He appeared on FOX’s “Laughs,” is a regular on the Bob and Tom Morning Show, and has traveled overseas to perform for troops stationed in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan. His style is considered original, relatable, and “definitely funny.”
Prepare for Jen Kober’s energetic blend of stand-up, storytelling, and improvised rock-n-roll comedy. After claiming the title of “Comedic Performance of the Year” in 2017 and 2018, Kober appeared on several shows on Netflix, HBO, Showtime, and Disney+. Her face can be seen in Disney’s “The Mandalorian,” Showtime’s “Black Monday,” CBS’s sitcom “How We Roll,” and on Netflix’s “Dead to Me.”
Jody Fuller is a comic, speaker, author, and U.S. veteran with three tours of duty in Iraq. Fuller also considers himself a “lifetime stutterer.” Growing up in Opelika, Ala. he says he had to overcome two things: poverty and stuttering. Enlisting in the U.S. Army after high school helped him overcome the poverty, but the stuttering “continues to pose unique challenges,” leading him to become a member of two NSAs: the National Stuttering Association and the National Speakers Association. With his military career now behind him, he takes his sense of humor on the road, performing for non-profits, businesses, disability groups, and for troops at home and abroad.
