Marcus Monroe
Marcus Monroe
When Marcus Monroe takes the stage you can't help but take notice. Dubbed "the rock star of jugglers" by the New York Press, Marcus combines innovative juggling with a high-energy original take. This makes him one of the most sought after variety performers. Not only is he is giving comedy-juggling a much needed extreme makeover, but Marcus is taking a strong lead in the new generation of variety performers.

Marcus is the recipient of the prestigious Andy Kaufman Award, and has performed at some of the largest music festivals including Bonnaroo, Summerfest and Outside Lands. In the summer of 2012 Marcus was a featured performer at SF Sketchfest and performed onstage with special guest Neil Patrick Harris. Marcus is a favorite at the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, alternative comedy shows such as Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen and a frequent performer at Monday Night Magic in New York City. Most recently Marcus starred in the cast of the hit Off-Broadway show La Soirée.

Marcus has appeared on dozens of national TV shows and has already been seen by millions, including a performance on The Late Show with David Letterman. Other TV appearances include: MTV's TRL, ABC Family's Switched!, the host of Discovery Kid's Mad Science, The History Chanel's Pawn Stars, MTVu's Dean List and CBS's Secret Talents of the Stars. Marcus also appeared as the juggling consultant in the Zach Galifianakis movie It's Kind of a Funny Story.

Greg Barris
Greg Barris
Greg Barris is a staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene and is the creator of Heart Of Darkness: a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music and fringe scientists that has been a frequent Time Out New York critic’s pick, much loved by BrooklynVegan and hailed as ‘Excellent’ by The New Yorker. Comedians who have appeared on Heart of Darkness include Reggie Watts, Fred Armisen, Janeane Garofalo and Jim Gaffigan.

In Fall 2012, Barris announced the release of his debut comedy album SHAME WAVE. Recorded in the spring in NYC, SHAME WAVE features Barris, whom PAPER describes as “the perfect combination of very good looking, hilarious and super-weird,” at his charasmatic best. aspecialthing Records will release SHAME WAVE on October 9th.

In addition to curating and performing every sold out Heart of Darkness live show, Barris’ boundless talent and energy is also showcased on his pop fantasy comedy album as the Wigmaker’s Son. Wigmaker’s Son ‘Greatest Tits’ lp is the wholly original Zappa-meets-Lonely-Island creation from Barris and guitarist / visual artist Dima Drjuchin (Corrupt Autopilot) who leads The Forgiveness band at every Heart of Darkness show. The album, out Spring 2012 and featuring songs from Heart of Darkness, takes listeners on a magic carpet ride through time waves, anoints Tom Selleck as a baby saving mustachioed saint, makes things better, puts the reptilian army on notice and forgives all your sins.

The well-rounded Barris’ comedic shorts have been featured on Funny or Die, College Humor and Jay Leno’s Laugh Squad to name a few. He has been a commentator on MTV's All That Rocks and MTV's Warren The Ape.

“Greg Barris is the kind of man who believes the Universe tilts toward Justice AND that a quote from me means something. What a dear sweet fool.” – Janeane Garofalo

“Greg Barris takes his audiences to places they’ve never been before, inside the heart of a man who cares so much, you can taste his pain. Then he turns you around and covers you with his joy, just like in one of those sex movies, only its standup comedy.” – Rory Scovel

“Greg Barris strong and make people happy with charm powers. He good friend and tell good jokes. One time he help me kill hunger with pizza. His comedy best because him say stories that mostly true. Him like girls as much as I do and that make for fun talks. Because of Greg New York and LA is better place.” -Reggie Watts
Valley Lodge
Valley Lodge
Valley Lodge is the best rock band basically. You might know them from their wildly popular song "Go," which serves as the theme song to HBO's "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver."Anyway, the band is comprised of singer and guitar player Dave Hill (the internationally renown comedian and writer who has also been a member of Cobra Verde, Sons of Elvis, Walter Schreifels Band, Diamondsnake, Witch Taint and some others too), drummer Rob Pfeiffer (Sense Field), guitar player and singer Phil Costello (Tragedy, Satanicide, Diamondsnake, Witch Taint), and bass player man Eddie Eyeball (2 Skinnee J's, Gordon Gano, and more!) Guitar player and founding member John Kimbrough (Walt Mink, Teen Judge, Tenacious D) provides additional rock heat and spiritual guidance via his Los Angeles bunker. They sound kind of like Cheap Trick, T. Rex, Big Star, Raspberries, Matthew Sweet, Slade, the Kinks, and probably a bunch of other stuff too. It's power pop meets pop rock meets your best friend's parents going out of town when you are sixteen and think that they won't notice if you threw a pool party. Oh, and it's 1978 and you are hooked on glue.

Valley Lodge has recorded three albums and are currently recording their fourth incredible album. When not recording hot rock albums, the band has found time to tour Japan, where they are considered geniuses, and also serve as the house band for Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. Additionally, the band's music has appeared in such popular television programs as "Raising Hope," "Cougar Town," "Camp," and more. It is worth noting that all of these programs have been cancelled. Valley Lodge's music has also been featured in television commercials for GMC Trucks and Sonic, the popular hamburger restaurant, an incident that has left the members of the band rich beyond their wildest dreams.

Valley Lodge puts on public displays of their patented live rock assault several times a year. If you would like to have them play at your club, house, teambuilding seminar, or somewhere else, please get in touch via the contact page and a representative will probably get back to you. Also, if you are interesting in licensing the band's music for something or another, you should totally do that.
