From the time he was telling jokes in his second-grade talent show, Steve Trevino knew he wanted to do standup. A small-town boy, Trevino stayed up late watching “Night at the Improv” on TV and knew that if he wanted to be a comedian, he’d need to move to a city with an Improv comedy club. After high school, Trevino got a job as a doorman at the Addison Improv in order to get stage time. He quickly earned his stripes to become the house emcee, opening for the club’s big acts, who encouraged him to bite the bullet and move to Los Angeles.
Trevino was featured in the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Festival along with comic greats Jay Mohr, Rita Rudner, Tommy Chong and Bill Bellamy. His first hour-long comedy special, filmed at the festival, aired on Showtime. He’s currently developing a half-hour comedy show about his life.
Michael Mancini has taken his hilarious standup across the United States for almost 30 years. Since the ’90s, he’s also been a member of the Santa Cruz Police Department. Mancini’s high-energy style and hilarious stories from his real-life job have made him a three-time winner of the World’s Funniest Cop competition, hosted by Jay Leno.
