Within these pages you will find hilarious stories from his childhood and learn more about what makes Bruce Bruce one of the most popular comedians in the business today. Bruce’s comedy can actually be traced back to when he was working as a chef directly out of high school. He would entertain his customers with his humor while cooking up mean BBQ dishes. Bruce also worked as a FritoLays salesman and did everything from shelf placement to performing his comedy sets during their corporate meetings. Eventually, Bruce brought his comedy routine to the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta and was an instant hit.

When BET’s Coast to Coast came to town searching for new and talented stand-up comedians, Bruce would pursue the opportunity to appear on the show and would incessantly audition at each club in the area. Ultimately, he appeared on the show three times. In 1993, Bruce made his first appearance on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam; followed quickly by an impressive appearance on the Showtime at the Apollo hosted by Steve Harvey in 1994.

Kountry Wayne | Aug 13-15

Raw, real and wickedly-hilarious, “Kountry” Wayne Colley’s microformat digital videos have catapulted him from life in small town Georgia to mega social media superstar and comedy sensation, selling out clubs and theaters across America.

Since his first Facebook post in October 2014 went viral, the charismatic comic has amassed millions of followers across Facebook and Instagram, generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers within the entertainment industry for being one of the funniest emerging performers to hit the comedy scene.

Kountry Wayne at the Comedy House

Keeping it real, mining comic gold from the everyday and applying his genius for freestyling, Wayne is a master comic storyteller. In 2017 Wayne embarked on a the 150-date national “Child Support Tour” throughout the U.S. That wasn’t just a clever moniker – he’s the dad of nine kids and even as he builds his own entertainment legacy, he’s all about securing the future for them.

“My hashtag, my mantra, is ‘Help is On The Way!’ – that’s my slogan, I own it, because I believe God’s got my back and your back and whatever is stressing you out today, it won’t last because help is truly on the way,” says Wayne, whose endearingly funny way with English comes from growing up “Kountry” in Millen, GA (pop. 3500), between Statesboro and Augusta.

He was given what became his stage name during a stint living and going to school in Savannah in the mid-2000s. In January 2020, Wayne began his “The People’s Champ” North American tour, travelling to cities across the U.S. and Canada including Miami, Pittsburgh, West Palm Beach, Phoenix and more.

In addition to his comedy tour, Wayne performed alongside comedy heavyweight, Mike Epps, along with an all-star lineup, on the “The Fabulously Funny Comedy Festival” arena tour, in major cities such as Los Angeles, Detroit, Miami, Chicago, New York, Houston, Nashville, Atlanta and Dallas, to name a few.

With his humble roots and unbridled energy, Wayne continues to build his audience with cutting edge yet clean, curse free material whose appeal transcends all cultural lines and is fit for (and often draws) the whole family. All while still posting content online daily.

Mike Epps | Aug 27-29

MIKE EPPS is generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers for being not only
one of the funniest comic actors in town, but also for his burgeoning dramatic talent.

Mike is currently starring and producing the Netflix comedy “The UpShaws.” The show is based
on his life of growing up in Indiana and taken from his 2018 Harper Collins autobiography Unsuccessful
Thug. The book is written by Mike about his life and childhood; growing up in poverty and how comedy
saved his life.

He was recently seen in the Amazon feature “Troup Zero” starring opposite Viola Davis,
Allison Janney, and Jim Gaffigan; and in the A24 film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” which
both premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

In 2019, his fifth stand up special “Just One Mike” premiered on Netflix. Last fall, he was seen opposite Eddie Murphy in the comedy “Dolemite is my Name” which was nominated for Golden Globe, Broadcast Film Critic Awards and a NAACP Image Award.

Mike was seen in the HBO-Emmy Winning biopic “Bessie ” based on Bessie Smith, played by
Queen Latifah. The film chronicles how Smith overcame her tempestuous personal life to become one of
the most acclaimed performing and recording artists of the 1920s and ’30s, earning the nickname Empress
of the Blues. Mike plays Richard Morgan, a bootlegger and romantic interest to Bessie Smith. The film
also won a Critics Choice Award for “best mini- series/ movie” as well as a Primetime Emmy for
“ Television Movie or Limited Series.”

Mike was seen in three seasons of the Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse” produced LeBron James and Mike O’Malley which he won a 2016 NAACP Image award for “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his portrayal as Uncle Julius. In 2011, he was awarded an NAACP Image Award for “Best Supporting Actor” for his role in the
Sony Pictures film, “Jumping the Broom.” He continued to receive critical praise for his dramatic turn in
2012 with “Sparkle,” opposite Whitney Houston and Jordan Sparks.

In 2016 he further pursued his dramatic side with two important roles: starring opposite Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie in the Lionsgate thriller, “Repentance,” being released through Lionsgate/Codeblack Entertainment., followed
by the independent Nina Simone biopic, “Nina,” starring Zoe Saldana. In “Nina,” he plays the legendary Richard Pryor, who opened for the singer in the early 60’s.

He has recently entered the tech space with the first interactive game ‘button’ made by Amazon
for the Alexa called “Sounds Fun with Mike Epps” The amazon button features Mike making hilarious
sound effects with his voice. The sound effects included in “Sounds Fun” will range from the obvious to
the absurd, such as a “lawn mower” or “helicopter” to “Donald Trump getting a haircut.” Every day a
new and different sound will be released, making each game a unique experience for the players. Epps
will also serve as the game’s judge, providing a comedic mix of friendly encouragement and snarky
banter.

He is also currently on a national stand up tour and in 2015 his “Mike Epps; Don’t Take it
Personal” was seen on Netflixs. In 2009, Mike headlined his hugely successful stand-up special, “Mike
Epps: Underrated and Never Faded,” and in 2011 introduced the world to new comedic talent with, “Mike
Epps Presents…,” both which aired on Showtime. He also released his first comedy rap album called
“Funny Bidness: Da Album.” The album featured Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, and Slim Thug to name a
few. That year also marked the release of his comedy DVD “Funny Bidness.” With his undying love for
hip-hop, Mike hosted the BET Hip-Hop Awards from 2009-2012.

Since 2000, Epps steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks when he was
recognized by a national audience for appearing on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam (which, years later,
he would go on to host).

During a performance at LA’s Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube. This led to the first of three feature films they would do together: the cult hits “Next Friday,” “Friday after Next,” and “All About the Benjamins.” Other features include the Hangover franchise, “Girls Trip” “Faster,” “Hancock,” “Lottery Ticket,” “Next Day Air,” “Roll Bounce,” “The Fighting Temptations”, the Resident Evil franchise, “Bait”, “How High,” “Dr.Dolittle 2”, “Talk to Me”, and “Guess Who?”

Epps has been seen in over 40 cities and 3 continents live doing standup.
