Description: Comedy for The Heart Charity – Come enjoy some wonderful comedy to warm your heart!
Jill Bryan: This married mother of two has always had an appreciation for performing and making people laugh, but didn't discover her true calling until July of 2006. Since then, she’s worked with Jimmy Fallon, Norm Macdonald, Jeffrey Ross, DL Hughley and other great comedians at Stand Up Live, the Improvs, The Comedy Store and other respected venues around the country. Jill has also done numerous charity events and was personally asked to emcee a fundraiser by world-renowned musician Nils Lofgren, who also performed at the event.
On the last Wednesday of every month, Jill books and hosts the "Comedy Gold Showcase" at Stand-Up Live, which culls together the best and brightest from the Valley’s booming comedy scene. And every Tuesday night you can catch Jill hosting her own comedy show at Dos Gringos, a sports bar in Tempe, AZ, where the comedy is mediocre and the food is Mexican.
Plus, you can now hear Jill on the radio as the brains and voice behind the weekly segment “What A Mouth” on the “Lu Valentino Show.” Tune in to www.i100rocks.com (http://www.i100rocks.com) every Friday at 6:20pm PST to hear Jill’s opinions on current events happening in entertainment, sports and politics. If it’s annoying her, she wants you to know about it.

Mike James: Mike James is an in-demand comic. He performs around the country as a corporate entertainer and can also be found on stage in some of the most prominent comedy clubs.
Mike uses his improvisation skills and his life experience as a husband, father and generally very confused man to relate to his audience in a hilarious montage of miscommunication and everyday observations.
Tom Sims: Making unusual but relatable observations of marriage, parenting and everyday life, Tom Sims has quickly become a southwest favorite. Audiences love his often twisted take on the absurdities of life.
A former member of an 80's hair band, a radio dj, and corporate I.T. nerd, Tom has a very unique view of the world and life in general.
