Ronn Vigh's brash attitude and acerbic wit earned him a comparison to a young Joan Rivers by the SF Weekly. It was certainly a fitting comparison as Ronn later became a writer for Rivers on her hit E! Television show "Fashion Police." Ronn regularly performs at comedy clubs, colleges and festivals across the nation. He also co-hosts the sports-comedy podcast, "Switching Teams: A Gay Dude & A Straight Dude Talk About Sports."
His biggest accomplishment: Working briefly as a flight attendant and not attempting to smother any of his passengers with a pillow. Yes, there were complimentary pillows on the plane when Ronn did that job. Please don't do the math.

Featuring Gene Pompa
Comedian and writer Gene Pompa's television credits include regular appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien " on NBC and a handful of appearances on "The Late Late Show" on CBS. Other credits include Comedy Central HBO Que Locos on Galavision Showtime's "Latino Laugh Festival " and "In Living Color" on FOX and Si TV! Gene co-starred in Paul Rodriguez' "Comedy Rehab" in May 2009. He has completed two half-hour solo stand-up specials "Pompalicious" for Comedy Central and a self-titled half-hour stand-up special for SI! TV both airing regularly in rotation.
Gene's offbeat perspective plays extremely well with college age audiences and crosses all racial and ethnic lines. He headlines regularly at the Improvs in Hollywood Irvine Brea and Ontario and across the country doing a stand-up show with great social relevance and irrelevance.
Gene was born in East Los Angeles and raised in the working-class suburbs of Southern California. He's been a Mexican-American for most of his life except for a few years during the 70's when he was a "practicing Chicano." As a product of the multi-ethnic suburbs of Los Angeles Gene was inspired to utilize universal themes in his stand-up and his writing.
Headliner Gary Cannon
Gary Cannon has been in the comedy business for over 20 years. After arriving in Los Angeles, he quickly became a favorite at all the southern California Improv clubs. Gary’s high energy and ability to jump-start a crowd made him an obvious choice for house emcee at not only the Improv but other clubs, including the Laugh Factory and the world-famous Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. Many top headliners requested Gary to open their shows, including Ken Jeong (Community/The Masked Singer), Craig Robinson (The Office) and Jimmy O Yang (Silicon Valley/Crazy Rich Asians).
Gary’s high energy and likability led him to do a unique job in television called an audience warm-up comic. Anyone attending a television taping has probably met Gary. He gets the crowd excited before and during production and has worked on some of the biggest shows in entertainment, including The Masked Singer, Conan O’Brien, James Corden, Will & Grace, The Connors and Dr Phil, to name a few.
When Gary isn’t on stage performing, he is more than likely working as an animal advocate. He works tirelessly, saving and transporting dogs from the shelter to vets and forever homes. During the pandemic, Gary housed over twelve dogs until they were safely placed with new owners.
