He has enjoyed venues from clubs and colleges across the U.S. as well as corporate events, cruises, and a variety of television shows including The Late Show with David Letterman. As a writer for The Ellen DeGeneres Show Steve received an Emmy for his work there.
Performing clean, clever routines Steve has landed spots (in addition to David Letterman) on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Bob & Tom Radio Show, as well as Sirius/XM Radio comedy channels. He has also handled audience warm-up duties for television shows Deal or No Deal, among others. Adding to his resume’ are eight different trips to Iraq and Afghanistan where he performed rousing comedy shows for U.S. and coalition troops.
These are the shows that are closest to his heart and when asked if he’d do it again, Steve says, “In a heartbeat!” The subject of the award-winning film “Dying to do Letterman,” Steve’s comedy has been described as “brilliant” and “side-splitting.” His material offers layers that leave audiences howling and retrospective at the same time.

Quick witted and personable, Mark Gee’s comedy inspires a wide variety of audiences. A genuinely friendly and very funny comic, Mark is a natural behind the microphone. Performing at all the major clubs nationwide and known for his relatable comedy, audiences feel like they’re spending time with an old friend whenever he performs.
Mark’s comedic journey began in San Francisco where he performed at open mic’s throughout The City and the Bay Area. Mark ultimately enrolled in the Bay Area Theater Sports (BATS), a world-famous San Francisco improvisation institute; this additional training helped add more versatility to Mark’s comedic routines. He gives a lot of credit to BATS for helping him improve his natural abilities to weave his material with improvisation. The result? The audience experiences what Mark describes as a “fresh out of the oven” act every time! A true world traveler, Mark performs full-time around the U.S. and abroad.
Currently living just outside of Sacramento, California, Mark has performed as far away as Japan, Singapore, Korea, and Canada.

Jake is one of those rare comedians who can get an audience to shake their heads even though they’re laughing at the material.
