This month I’m pleased as punch to welcome opening comic:
Dick Satori has done stand-up in nearly 30 cities across America and has participated in such events as The Guinness World Record’s Longest Comedy Show (with multiple comedians), The New York International Fringe Theater Festival, The Future Legends of Comedy Show at The Funny Bone Comedy Club, and The Females in Comedy Convention in Los Angeles. He has appeared in the Richmond Virginia Comedy Festival, Greenville North Carolina Comedy Festival, and The Midwest Comedy Festival, and Comic’s Rock Festival in Los Angeles as well as entertained at The College of William and Mary, Washington College, and Old Dominion University.
And featured storytellers:
Denise is a writer, storyteller, and performer. She is a daughter, sister, friend, graduate, employee, wife, and mom. Denise has four ridiculously supportive daughters. Also, she’s an ex-wife, ontological mentor, and a SWF. Denise bares her soul to bestow sacred truths about the human spirit. She divulges stories about an invalidating childhood (identity crisis begins) divorce (blame. period.) dating (I love you, g’bye) suicide attempts (Cuckoo’s Nest) debt (enabling) maternity (sacrifice or die.) Denise will perform her one-act play My Funny Suicide at the Gene Frankel Theater as part of the second annual Radio Active Festival from June 10–14.
Mike lives in New York but is originally from Scottsdale, Arizona, because everyone makes mistakes. He’s done a bunch of cool things like talk into a camera on The Wendy Williams Show, write articles for The Advocate and Elite Daily, and perform in the longest variety show ever (which put him in The Guinness Book of World Records). He was the only NYC comedian selected for the 2014 San Diego Comedy Festival and in 2015 Mike will be one of 72 featured comedians at the prestigious Laughing Skull Comedy Festival.
