Halli Borgfjord: Halli Borgfjord grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan in a well-rounded family where he enjoyed the comfort of suburban life. Being the middle child, Halli was naturally inclined to be in the spotlight and initially had childhood dreams of becoming an actor, but as a young teenager Halli fell in love with the show “Friday Night Stand-Up” on Comedy Central and from that moment on knew someday he would be a comedian himself. All through grade school and into college Halli was the biggest student of stand-up. While his friends were buying the latest pop albums, Halli was listening to George Carlin and going to see legends such as Jerry Seinfeld and Mitch Hedberg in concert.
Due to his relentless study and passion for comedy Halli was a natural on stage. Starting his comedy career in college, Halli became an instant success with his quick wit and ability to point out the insanity of everyday life. Shortly after beginning his stand-up career, Halli obtained some success by becoming a finalist in a local stand-up competition and from there he began to perform in the bigger clubs in Chicago and across the midwest.
Halli now resides in Los Angeles, CA and is a crowd favorite all across the country. Halli appears regularly in Las Vegas opening for comedy legend, Louie Anderson and he also appeared briefly on the 2010 Green Card Tour with Russell Peters. In Los Angeles, Halli runs his own regular show, “A Comedy SmorgasBorg” at the World Famous Comedy Store and is a regular on the hottest college show in the country, “Comedy Juice.” Halli has been featured in Life Magazine and in August 2010 Campus Activities Magazine named Halli to their “Hot Comedy” list as one of the top comedians of 2011. In September 2010 Halli released his first full-length comedy album“Have You Been Borgfjorded Lately?” The album debuted at #2 overall on the iTunes Top Comedy Charts. Halli continues to tour nationally and his comedy album is currently available on iTunes and Amazon.
Jason Collings: JASON COLLINGS
Jason Collings spent his youth growing up in the heart of Long Beach, CA with his identical twin brother, mom and dad. During his elementary days, Jason was known for being a bit of a jokester. This passion for humor only intensified as he reached his teen years. Lacking focus, Jason's father put him into martial arts at age 12. Jason later went on to compete in tournaments and win several local and national 1st place titles. He gained prominent status in the fighting word and eventually trained side by side with Royce Gracie. When other stand up comedians were beginning their careers, Jason, at age 21, was opening his own Martial Arts School.
As his passion for Martial Arts grew, so did his passion for comedy. He began idolizing comics like George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor and Jim Carrey. He would breathe in every 'special' he could get his hands. He began to wonder if he too could be a stand up comedian. This dream became more practical when the gravity of reality struck at the heart of his career. At age 34, Jason sustained a major leg injury during training and he was told that he would never run again. Jason found his career in Martial Arts coming to a screeching halt.
At age 35, after a long recovery from surgery, Jason knew he needed to consider a new career. While continuing to run a successful school, he decided to look up his first and long time love, comedy. He began writing material based on his life experiences, his family and his two boys. Unknowingly, Jason's ultimate decision to step on stage would rest on one more pivotal moment.
In 2006, Jason’s father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Knowing that it may be his father’s only chance to see him on stage, Jason made it his purpose to find a decent venue. He convinced a local Hollywood club to give him stage time, saying that he had been doing it for several years. 15 Minutes later, Jason found his purpose. The club made him an instant weekly regular never knowing that he fibbed his way in the door.
Like 99% of all other comedians, Jason has always had a love for comedy. It has been in his heart since he was just a small boy. The 1% percent that makes him different is that in only 3 years time, he has sky rocketed ahead of the pack. Starting his career at age 35, he has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in comedy. He has toured with Jo Koy and most recently, Carlos Mencia. He is a well known regular at major comedy clubs including The Improv, The Laugh Factory, The Ice House, The Punchline and The Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. Jason's unique brand of observational humor and his ability to paint a picture with his physical comedy will have you falling out of your seats and begging for more.
