Not sure if you guys are ready for the Marilyn Monroe of Comedy!!
From the time August O'Neal was born, this woman had stars in her eyes. She started off as a youngster in school musicals and plays. She eventually gravitated towards modeling and was even 4th Runner-up in the Miss Columbus Pageant, where she also won Miss Congeniality. After running the streets and losing focus, she moved west and was able to land a spot on Soul Train. However, LA was too much for the small-time girl, so she moved to Phoenix and started a career with the Phoenix Police Department as a 911 Operator, all the while, still going to LA every month to dance on Soul Train. Miss O'neal found herself back in the arms of LA in 2007 and promised herself she wouldn't throw in the towel.
She can be seen on Hell Date season 1, episode 21, a quick/feature in Hancock with Will Smith, Prom Night w/ Idris Elba. In 2013, she ventured into stand up comedy. She has several comedy showcases under her belt and recently, was part of the Divas of the Desert Comedy show. She's making a name for herself by getting audiences of all types to roar with laughter.
Amber Frame: What a charm this will be with Ambers' take about how all advertising is based on fear, and that people on health food diets sound like they're talking about drugs. Everybody understands Amber's sense of humor and will laugh with delight as she describes some of your friends to a T.
Born in Tucson but raised on the east coast, Amber grew up amongst the sprawling horse farms, strip mall diners, and angry sports fans of the Philadelphia area. She spent her twenties as a starving artist in Boston before a desire to be closer to family not to mention Boston’s rising real estate prices… drove her back to her native desert lands in 2014.
Her self-deprecating comedy pokes fun at her own “hipster” sensibilities, the culture shock of an east-coaster living in Arizona, and the joys and pitfalls of starting over in your thirties. Performing at the all-female showcase ‘Estrogen Hour’ at Laffs Comedy Café, and ‘Comedy at the Wench’ on Tucson’s 4th Avenue, has made Amber a household name (at least in her own house.)
Danielle Williams aka The Comedy Diva, is a television host, radio personality and stand up comedian with a unique take on wearing wigs, becoming "Divafied" and her love of pop culture. Danielle has performed throughout the Southwest and has opened for NBC's Last Comic Standing top 10 finalist comedienne Aida Rodriquez, comedian Donnell Rawlings from the the Chappelle show and comedian Godfrey from Zoolander at Rick Bronson's House of Comedy. Danielle's stage presence, comic timing and enthusiastic energy has made her one of the most sought after up and coming comics on the scene.
Have you seen her on TV? Probably: she auditioned for the producers of THE GAME SHOW network. They were looking for a new face to be the guest co-host on their day time talk show GSN Live. Danielle won the producers over and was personally picked by the shows host Fred Roggin going to Los Angeles and made her national television debut on April 23, 2009. Currently she's the host of Arizona Daily Mix on AZTV 7 & 13 which you can watch weekdays at 8 am. She's also a traffic anchor for I Heart Media covering local and national traffic reports.
Tammy King is a fabulous newcomer to stand-up. She is a member of our Clean Comedy Lovers Meetup! Only last year did she first stand before a crowd at an open mic and we're glad she did. Early this year we discovered her and immediately asked her to entertain our audience. We are delighted she accepted. This is Tucson talent that you'll be able to proudly proclaim you saw one of her very first shows!
Comedian Reign is an Arizona native. Besides being very Hott, she's a mother of 7, an elementary school teacher, a wife, petty, sarcastic, and has tourettes. One of comedy's biggest fans, will blow you away!
