ALEXANDRA McHALE: Emcee
Alexandra McHale was thrilled to make her network debut on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She’s also been seen on CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and New Joke City with Robert Klein on the Metro Channel. After her appearance at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, The Hollywood Reporter cited Alexandra as one to watch “who scored points with quick barbs.” Alexandra grew up in Connecticut before relocating to New York City, where she became a lifetime member of the prestigious Actors’ Studio and studied with acting greats such as Paul Newman, Sally Field and Ellen Burstyn. She is a frequent commentator on VH1’s I Love The 80’s, Supersecret TV Formulas and The 100 Most Cheesetastic Video Countdown. In addition to appearances on network television, Alexandra has headlined at over 300 colleges and was voted 2002 and 2003 Female Entertainer of the Year by the readers of Campus Activities Magazine, been nominated for 2005 & 2008, 2009 Female Entertainer of the Year & 2009 Comedian of the Year and was nominated Performer of the Year by the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities . This past year, Alexandra debuted her new website Townhouse 84 “dedicated to real life insight for college women” which was named after the residence hall she called home while at Fairfield University. http://www.townhouse84.com
MIKE PARAMORE: Feature Comedian
Mike Paramore is the guy you fight to sit next to in a movie theatre, on a long car ride, or during a boring lecture. He has a natural ability to infuse everyday situations with energetic, uplifting humor. Mike’s natural ability to put you at ease is key to his personal brand of comedy. His smooth delivery and powerful punchlines make him a force in stand-up comedy.
Mike has opened for comedians Damon Wayans, Cash Cab’s Ben Baily, Jon Lovitz, and Saturday Night Live’s Jay Pharoah. In addition to performing at the 2010 Stellar Awards and being a part of the 2012 Just for Laughs Festival, Mike was a finalist in the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, the grand prize winner of the 2015 Cleveland Comedy Festival, and is a featured comedian on Laughs TV Show on FOX. Also as the Senior Artistic Director of Good Jokes Live! Comedy & Improv, Mike brings comedy to the masses either though himself or the network of comedians he works with via Good Jokes Live.
PETE LEE: Headlining Comedian
Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. Thanks to his highly rated Comedy Central Presents half hour special and appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Pete has packed venues at over 500 colleges and universities and countless comedy clubs and theaters across the country. Pete has also been a standout on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and played a doctor on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. His hit YouTube series titled Pete Lee’s Internet Freak Show attracted the attention of television executives. He was quickly hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV’s Video on Trial and cast member on VH1’s Best Week Ever. Now, you can see Pete in his own Comedy Central Snapchat Series as well as every Friday Night on TruTV’s Greatest Ever.
This event will take place at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts at 200 West Main Cross Street, Findlay, OH 45840.
