Not only is storytelling an art that throughout time has passed information, life lessons and entertainment from generation to generation, it is one of the oldest art forms celebrated. It is also the best part of the entertainment business. Ask any performer when the show is over, and the place has cleared out, there is no better feeling then belling up to the bar with your fellow performers cracking a drink and a smile- and entertaining your fellow entertainers. What we do on stage isn't what entertains us as performers. We love the stories from the greenroom, sparkle in your eye a drink in hand and a great tale from the road. In "Drinks, Jokes and Storytelling" it is our job to bring the greenroom out to the stage and let the audience see what entertains us...
Host Mark Riccadonna grew up an artsy jock, who at 17 moved to New York to pursue Theater and Stand-up Comedy. He has performed in the bowels of New York, as well as travelled to the Middle East and around the globe, entertaining American and UN troops. Mark has traveled every road in this land, and in 7 continents, working with his childhood heroes. He has also been seen in the off Broadway hit Happy in the Poorhouse.
Vic Henley is the anchor of the night. Southern by birth, New Yorker by choice, Vic Henley is one of New York’s favorite comics. When Vic isn't writing for shows like the Sasha Baron Cohen feature film BRUNO, or performing on a Comedy Central Special, Letterman HBO, Edinburgh, Montreal, over 500 campuses (receiving 8 nominations for comedian of the year) or hosting a corporate show with George W. Bush, you can probably find him at a comedy club in New York charming an audience with stories from his life.
Special Guest Storyteller Carl Labove. Carl Labove has lived a life most of us couldn't imagine. Known as one of the original Out Laws of Comedy, Carl was known to run with some of the wildest, craziest crowds throughout the 80's and 90's. Carl has seen the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, partying with Billy Idol, Sam Kinison and Motley Crue, just to name a few. He left Texas and pursued the American Dream. He is currently in a one man show about his life as an outlaw, amazing crowds everywhere.
