Emcees Mason and Williams are featured in the documentary “Just About Famous.” They both were inducted in the Sunburst Convention Hall of Fame in 2011, after being awarded Funniest Male and Funniest Female in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Mason works at the University of Delaware by day, and in his free time, has penned more than 25 plays, directed more than 75 productions and acted in more than 100 roles. Williams is a court reporter by day and a Whoopi Goldberg look-alike on nights and weekends. She has appeared on numerous television shows and been featured in several entertainment magazines.
Larry Omaha’s unique point of view on multi-ethnic America has resulted in numerous television appearances and has been described by the LA Times as “refreshing, funny and universal.” Growing up Native American, Omaha was surrounded by racism and poverty, but his sense of humor became his escape. He tours with Gabriel Iglesias and has performed with the King of Jordan and is the voice of Nightwolf in “Mortal Combat 9.” In addition to being a comedian, Omaha is an actor, producer, voice-over artist, motorcyclist and singer.
Headliner Michael Malone has a “rubber face, energy, sarcasm and wildly imaginative views on life experiences.” He has performed in more than 27 states and been featured on the “Bob and Tom” radio and television shows. He also has made appearances on numerous other television and radio shows and was a finalist for the “CW Star Search.”
