The Queen – Kerri Louise – Last Comic Standing

Who can turn the world on with her smile? Mary Tyler Moore. But who can turn the world on with her hysterical stories, original humor, and boisterous characters? Kerri Louise.

High-energy, commanding and versatile--but enough about her sex life-- Kerri can entertain any audience with her warmth and razor-edge wit. So itÂ,,s no wonder that Kerri is a regular correspondent on the Oprah Winfrey Show and that NBC took Kerri all the way to the finals in the show Last Comic Standing with Jay Mohr. Kerri may not have gotten in the house on the hit reality show, but she impressed The Women's Entertainment network for them to make her the star of their new reality show call "TWO FUNNY". You will surely get a laugh while watching Kerri along with her husband and her twin baby boys on the WE Network. After giving birth to her 3rd boy, Kerri got asked to be a regular radio personality on The Radio Rita's. Kerri gives common sense, funny, mommy advice as the Mean Mommy. That landed her a spot on The Montel Show, and on the Fine Living Channel. Kerri's broad appeal has made her a natural on television appearances like NBC's Access Hollywood, The Apprentice, ABC's The View, Comedy Central, VH1, 20/20, New Joke City and The "New" Dr. OZ show.

Part Generation-X, part Girl-Next-Door, Kerri Louise is a pleasure to watch. Her movie debut in The Next Karate Kid addicted her to show-biz, hence her move from her hometown of Boston to New York City, where she quickly established herself as a player in the top comedy clubs. These credits plus her appearance in the Marie Claire Magazine, the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and the Montreal Comedy Festival has made Kerri and attraction.

The King – Tom Cotter – R.I. Favorite from America’s Got Talent

Before his historic run on the world’s largest talent competition, Tom won the Seattle International Comedy Competition, the grand prize at The Boston Comedy Festival and was voted "Best Stand-Up" at The Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

He has become a familiar face on television shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, The Today Show and his own series, TWO-FUNNY, on The Women’s Entertainment Network.

Other TV credits include CBS’ The Late Late Show, Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, Comics Unleashed and a Barbara Walters Prime-Time Special among many others.

Since moving to New York City, Tom filmed his very own Comedy Central special, “Comedy Central Presents... Tom Cotter”, and was featured in the Miramax film, “Next Stop Wonderland”. Tom has performed at over 300 colleges and wide variety of venues the world over, from London to Beijing, to the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. He has also been featured in dozens of television commercials, for products like McDonald’s, Doritos, Pepsi, and Amstel Lite, just to name a few.
