FRANK VIGNOLA (headliner)
Besides appearances on Comedy Central, Amazon Prime and SiriusXM radio, Mr. Vignola also has performed at Montreal’s prestigious “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival and toured the Middle East with Armed Forces Entertainment. Frank’s acting credits include the film roles of “Eddie” in “Tilting at Windmills” (International Film Festival Manhattan), “Mr. Leibowitz” in “Game Night” (Amazon Prime) and voicing the character of “Dr. Robert” in the animated television pilot “Ben v World”. And as a teacher he has taught stand-up at some of Manhattan’s finest comedy clubs (including StandUpNY, The Laugh Lounge and Broadway Comedy Club) in addition to mentoring and private coaching 2 decades worth of aspiring comedians.

…for Corporate events
Frank is also a corporate event favorite (Gotham Comedy Foundation, Statement Arts, Team Building Unlimited LLC, Bristol Meyers Squibb, Girl Scouts of the USA) and has shared stages with Gilbert Gottfried, Robert Klein, Bill Maher, Howie Mandel, Mark Maron, Colin Quinn, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman and Robin Williams just to name a few. All of which means he brings a wealth of experience and professionalism to the table. His humor is clean, the laughs are fast paced and everyone gets to personally participate in the fun as ‘non-insult based’ crowd work is one of his specialties.

Karen is a Philadelphia based comedian who found her passion for making people laugh last July. As she celebrates the one year anniversary of her new pursuit, she has had many amazing and fun experiences so far to be proud of performing on shows for Soul Joel’s, Over The Wall Comedy, Grierfest, SiriusXM and more.

Belynda Cleare
Despite her humble beginnings, Belynda’s aspirations transcend borders. Her mission to spread the gift of laughter takes her across continents, as she graces festivals, theaters, comedy clubs, and corporate events in both Canada and the United States. With a genuine desire to uplift spirits and provoke thought, Belynda Cleare is a beacon of humor, resilience, and mental well-being, leaving an indelible mark wherever her comedic footsteps lead.
