Alexandra McHale made her network debut on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” She grew up in Connecticut before relocating to New York City, where she became a lifetime member of the Actors Studio and studied with acting greats such as Paul Newman, Sally Field and Ellen Burstyn. She is a frequent commentator on VH1’s “I Love The ’80s,” “Super Secret TV Formulas” and “The 100 Most Cheesetastic Video Countdown.”
Mike Paramore has a natural ability to infuse everyday situations with energetic, uplifting humor featuring a smooth delivery punctuated by powerful punchlines.
Paramore has opened up for comedians Damon Wayans, “Cash Cab’s” Ben Bailey, Jon Lovitz, and “Saturday Night Live’s” Jay Pharoah; was the grand prize winner of 2015’s Cleveland Comedy Festival; and is a featured comedian on “Laughs” on Fox. He is the senior artistic director of “Good Jokes Live! Comedy & Improv,” a clean comedy production network.
Pete Lee was raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. Thanks to his highly-rated “Comedy Central Presents” half-hour special and appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Lee has packed venues at colleges and universities, comedy clubs, and theaters across the country.
A standout on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, he also played a doctor on the CBS soap opera “As the World Turns.” Lee’s hit YouTube series, “Pete Lee’s Internet Freak Show,” attracted the attention of television executives and he was quickly hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV’s “Video on Trial” and cast member on VH1’s “Best Week Ever.”
The show is rated PG-13 and brought to the community by the University of Findlay’s Student Activities Board and the Marathon Center.
