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 punch lines, clever writing and hair trigger laughs.
Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which probably explains why he pursued a career in entertainment.
In 2005, Pete flew to New York to make his television debut on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, and the taping went so well that he decided to move to NYC. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. In 2008 Pete made his network television debut performing on NBC’s Last Comic Standing finishing as a semi-finalist. That same year, he made his television acting debut on the CBS Soap Opera, As The World Turns, lasting two episodes! At the end of 2008 he then shot his own Comedy Central Half Hour Special, which earned him a cult following at comedy clubs, and the opportunity to perform over the next five years at 500 colleges across the country.
In 2010 Pete began producing and editing his own shows for the Internet which led to getting his own web show on MSN.com called New York Minute:30. His web shows attracted the attention of television talent scouts and in 2012 he was hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV’s Video on Trial and the NFL Network’s Top 10’s. In 2013, Pete was hired as a cast member on VH1’s Best Week Ever, where he was a writer and cast member for three seasons. That same year, he made his late night television debut on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman. Currently, Pete hosts his own segment on Nickelodeon’s Nick Toons, in co-ordination with the NFL, called NFL Rush.
If you haven’t heard of Pete Lee yet, prepare to tell other people.
In 2007, Pat McGann transitioned from packaging salesmen to stand up comedian. Soon after taking the stage Pat was booked to be House MC at the historic Zanies Comedy Club. Hosting shows helped Pat develop the ability and desire to work any crowd. In 2010, Pat created and hosted the Emmy nominated television show “The Chicago Stand Up Project”. Pat has been invited to The Great American Comedy Festival and Laugh Fest.
In 2013, Pat performed and presented at the Chicago/Midwest Emmy Awards. He was also asked by The Chicago White Sox to write and direct a comedy show with their players. The show, Wild Pitches, was a home run! (Their pun, not mine.)
Pat developed a special segment for the highly rated “Chicago Countdown New Year’s Eve Special 2013” on ABC. He was also asked to help Giordano’s Pizza respond to Jon Stewart and The Daily Show’s assault on Chicago pizza, resulting in a quick appearance on The Daily Show.
When not traveling the country working comedy clubs or corporate gigs, Pat appears regularly on Sports Talk Live (Comcast), Windy City Live (ABC), Mancow & Good Day Chicago (Fox), WGN Morning News, WGN-Radio & ESPN Radio.
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 Wonder Bread Years, a grand salute to the baby-boomer generation, aired on PBS where they referred to Hazell as “America’s foremost pop culture anthropologist.” Currently, the live theatrical tour of The Wonder Bread Years is enjoying success across the US.
As the Chief Creative Officer of Sweetwood Creative, he is responsible for the national tours of four original productions: Bunk Bed Brothers, The Wonder Bread Years, The Good Humor Men and A Kodachrome Christmas. Pat is currently in development on a musical adaptation of his original play, Grounded For Life. However, his greatest accomplishment is being the father of two of the brightest shining stars in the universe, Tucker and Keaton.
