We are very excited to bring you this show so without delay, let us introduce your comics!

Headliner Eric Blake! Eric is everywhere a world class comic belongs. Showtime, HBO, Comedy Central and BET! A star was born on "P Diddy's Bad Boys Of Comedy" and he's bringing his act to Ukiah High School!

Eric is a survivor of the notorious streets of South Central Los Angeles, where he experienced the “hard knock” life of gangs, drugs, and violence. It was eventually the depraved life on the streets that propelled him on a search for meaning and purpose, where he began to rediscover his passion and talent in comedy. Blake’s challenged upbringing led to his defining purpose: bringing laughter to the soul.

In brief, Eric has been on NBC's "Last Comic Standing", Comedy Central’s“Premium Blend”, HBO’s “Bad Boys of Comedy”, BET’s “Comic View” for ten years, and Galavision’s “Que Locos”. He also was included on Comedy Bash which was released to Redbox. In addition, he is part of Big Boy' s neighborhood on iheartradio and just finished taping Big Boy's Comedy Brawl. Eric is on Showtime’s “Chocolate Sundaes” that is airing on Showtime and his skit has gone viral at 50 million views.

This engaging comic has proven his worth night after night, performing to diversified audiences from coast to coast. Some of his performances include NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” HBO’s “Bad Boys of Comedy,” BET’s “Comic View,” in which he has aired on “The Best of Comic View” for the fourth consecutive year. He has also been televised on Galavision’s “Que Loco,” where he has displayed his cross-cultural abilities that have earned him a devote Latino following. Furthermore, Blake performed as the headliner for the comedy hit entitled “War On Comedy,” which aired on HBO and has recently been released on video. Eric’s acclaimed notoriety lead HBO to choose him among thousands to film a documentary on the eight most up and coming comedians in the country, which aired in the fall of 2013. In addition, he has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, and has performed overseas for USO and Armed Forces Entertainment in Japan, Greece, Europe, Spain, Diego Garcia, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Baghdad. Eric Blake is also part of Big Boy’s Neighborhood the nationally syndicated radio show on 92.3 iheartradio and is part of the Chocolate Sundaes Comedy series which is currently airing on Showtime.

Featuring Gina Stahl-Haven; Gina Stahl-Haven is a comedian, a professor, and a mom. (Not always in that order). She is a San Francisco Bay Area native and has been performing in the improv comedy world for over 15 years; featured at the Un-Scripted Theatre Company, San Francisco Improv Festival, San Francisco International Comedy Competition and lots of shady clubs and bars.

EMCEE Tom Allman will guide you through this incredible night of entertainment! As the community knows, Tom retired at the end of the decade. WHat you may not know is that he did so to pursue a career in comedy! Wink wink! Don't miss your chance to laugh the night away and support a great cause!

Special Performances by The Ukiah High School Choir and Band and Ukiah's hottest hip hop dancers, Higher Ground.

Thank you to our sponsors

Community First Credit Union- Once again, CFCU puts the rubber to the road in supporting our small community. A credit union that cares about community, supports our schools and teachers as a priority to the future. When this opportunity arose, eyebrows raised and interest was immediately focused on how they could help Ukiah High School. Their only interest was in figuring out how all the costs coud be paid for so that the proceeds from ticket sales could go directly to the school! When a finacial institution cares this much about students, teachers and families, you know they also care about the people they serve. Thank you CFCU!

Fowler Auto Center- The Fowler name is Synonymous with community, entertainment and supporting our schools. A big shout out to them for not even the slightest hesitation when asked to support this event. Fowler Auto Center also provides an amazing service and sales departments that are ready to meet Mendocino county's demands for Sales, service and customer needs. Thank you to the Fowler family!
