Watching a Bob Nelson live performance is like watching several different types of top comedians all rolled up into one.  Bob’s classic football routine is a recognized comedy classic and “Morning”, his tale of a farmer and a duck, is one of the finest works of one man showmanship. His shows are filled with spontaneity, zaniness and singular moments that will astound you. A  contemporary of Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno, Mr. Nelson’s extraordinary talents have been refined by a career that has included multiple appearances on The Merv Griffin Show, The Tonight Show and David Letterman. Bob Nelson was Rodney Dangerfield’s opening act for eight of the most popular years of Mr. Dangerfield’s career.  He also has two  HBO specials including the ground breaking classic Nelson Schmelson.  Bob won an Emmy Award in Philadelphia for a children’s show he wrote and starred in.  Bob has since had supporting roles When Harry Met Sally and also Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters  and Twins as well as box office smash Kindergarten Cop with Arnold  Schwarzenegger.

Rick Corso was selected as one of Showtime’s Comedy Club All-stars and picked to be a member of Comedy Central’s “The A-List.”  He talks about daily frustrations, politics, relationships, his Italian family and growing up in New Jersey, hitting home with all audiences by finding the right mixture of topics for any demographic.

Rick moves smoothly in and out of characters – including an Italian trying to tip his way to the front of a funeral line – and some lively impressions.   His excellent use of his voice and his body combined with well-written material make his stage personalities freshly funny and a far cry from the stale stereotypes employed by many stand-ups.

Corso’s act has a universal appeal which makes him a hit with comedy club audiences as well as Colleges, Cruise Ships and the showrooms of Las Vegas and Atlantic City.  You’ve seen him on VH1 Stand Up Spotlight, Evening at the Improv, Star Search, Comic Strip Live and more!

Carl started performing on the New York comedy club circuit right after he graduated from college in Ithaca, NY.   He honed his comedic skills performing regularly at such clubs as The Comic Strip, and Dangerfields.   Now he performs regularly on cruise ships, country clubs, comedy clubs and at corporate events.   His recipe for comedy is simple.  First he mixes in some observations of everyday life,  he then adds some relationship humor, sprinkles in some comments on topical events, tosses in some characters,  a couple of jokes, blends it with some spontaneous moments, maybe adds a touch of his guitar,  and presto, he has an act!  

In addition to numerous TV appearances, his PG rated material has enabled him to open in concert for such acts as Patti LaBelle, Julio Iglesias, Paul Anka, Debbie Reynolds, Joan Rivers, George Benson, and The Four Tops amongst others.
