Mark Poolos

Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career he co-starred in two independent films “Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies” and “Joanie Loves Furbies”. He did more films, some commercials, and some theater but it wasn’t enough, so he began his stand-up comedy career. Mark stands 6’7″ weighs in at 350 technically a giant however he is very weak and a wimp. In his routines, he weaves the story of his life as a bumbling jolly giant in his fast engaging storytelling style.  He has been compared to the likes of Adam Sandler and Louie Anderson. Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states and all across Canada. Mark’s ultimate dream is to do a film in the future people have actually seen.

 

Billy D. Washington

“Low-key intensity and dead on humor” is how the Denver Post described Billy D. Washington. His clever but quirky approach combined with his undeniable skill as a pianist has made Billy D. Washington a formidable force in the world of stand-up comedy.  After a 5-year stint as a Houston Police Officer, he followed his heart, took to the stage and has since assembled a pretty impressive body of work for this part-time church musician and full-time national Headliner.  Billy has a college show, performing arts show- Hue-more Comedy in Full color and has just begun touring his gospel play Finding First Lady. Billy has been featured at the prestigious “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival twice, HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and for 3 years traveled with The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin as her opening act. He has also appeared on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Last Comic Standing, The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Bob and Tom radio show, and spent time on VH-1 as a host and on-air personality. In 2008 he was identified as one of the most diverse comedians in America by the NBC stand-up for diversity initiative and is the creator of the critically acclaimed S.E.L.L.O.U.T. Comedy Tour, a group of talented black comedians who challenge America to resolve racial differences one joke at a time.
