National Headliner, Buddy Fitzpatrick
Gotham Comedy Live on AXS TV, HBO, ABC TV, A&E
BUDDY FITZPATRICK, a native of Philadelphia, is currently a New York City club favorite sharing his comedy perspective. His act combines the skill of a great monologist with a physical style that brings his observations to life. At the age of 18, he left Philadelphia to pursue a career in the arts. He enrolled in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City and has never looked back. He went on tour with several theater companies starring in plays ranging from Shakespeare to Neil Simon. His comedy timing was always a bright spot in any production and with a little prodding he took the next step to the comedy club stage. Soon after, Buddy was a regular at all the prominent showcase clubs in New York City honing his craft night after night. The positive response to his work fueled his desire and has kept him very busy on the comedy circuit for the last 20 years. His act is made up of inventive material delivered in a self-assured style.
Buddy's stand-up made him a regular on Comedy Central with appearances on ABC and A&E. Buddy can be seen in the Damon Wayans film Harlem Aria and in The Business of Strangers starring Julia Stiles and Stockard Channing. His television credits include HBO's Sopranos. Buddy has written, produced and performed in his biographical play Sides at various NYC theatres. When not currently headlining, Buddy can be seen opening for Joe Behar and was a frequent opener for Joan Rivers. Buddy has also had the privilege of opening for The Beach Boys, Doobie Brothers, and The Righteous Brothers.
Buddy can be seen on Gotham Comedy Live AXS TV, has two appearances on nickmom Night Out and is a contributing writer on nickmom's Actual Housewives of the PTO.
Feature, Kevin Israel
Gilda Radner's Laugh-Off Winner, Major NYC Clubs
For over 15 years Kevin had been entertaining audiences with an act forged at his family’s dining room table, in his fraternity house, and in the halls of law school. Kevin has an act unlike any other, because it is his story and his alone. With razor sharp wit and the ability to improvise that only a lawyer could possess – once you see him, you won’t forget him.
Considered one of the top political operatives in New Jersey, Kevin left that life, and a lucrative position at a law firm, to pursue his one true passion – comedy. Now he tours the country regaling audiences with his decades of life experience. From stories of his mother, to relationships, to the reality of growing up the only Jewish kid in his school, when Kevin leaves the stage you won’t just feel that you’ve seen a great show, you’ll know you made a friend.
Kevin has worked with some of the top acts in the nation. He has appeared on NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX. He guest hosted the Sirius Satellite Radio RawDog comedy morning show and he won the prestigious Gilda Radner’s Laugh-off in 2013. Now he stars in his own web series, “B.R.O.’s” and cohosts the Comedy Point Radio show.
