Two items minimum per person
Kevin Shea: After moving to San Francisco, Kevin started a career in the Internet industry which lasted a whole year. In 2002 he was layed off and was convinced by a friend to go to an open mic. Influenced by Eddie Murphy's "RAW", Kevin decided to go to the open mic dressed in a purple leather jump suit......not a good idea. His first set was not very good.
Not trying to become the typical Asian comic Kevin strayed away from Korean accents based on their mothers'.....plus his mom is a honkey. He concetrated on developing his own style which has said to be very laid back and fresh. With his unique style and jokes, he caught the eyes of hollywood and was invited to the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.
Kevin has numerous television appearances which include Comedy Central's Premium Blend and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He is currently living in Los Angeles.
Brian Moote: In 2004 Brian Moote's mother said to him in her usual Irish sarcasm, "Well, if you think you are so funny, why don't you become a comedian then mister?" Shortly thereafter, mostly out of spite, Brian first stepped on stage and thoroughly entertained 3 people at an 11pm open-mic show. To his surprise, his stubbornness had just opened the door to his dream job and he worked as a professional comedian throughout his college studies. Since that night, he has worked at comedy clubs and colleges across the country. He has an energetic and conversational style that promises no two sets are exactly the same, and his goal when he performs is to facilitate good time for everyone in the room, or seriously injure himself trying. The latter of which has yet to happen to him, and a bit dramatic. He was a part of Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight and the Maxim/Bud Light Real Men of Comedy Tour featuring Joe Rogan. He is "just a barrel of fun" says his mother, who to this day takes credit for launching him into the world of show business. He recently recorded a 50 min album entitled “Paying for Graduate School” at Wiseguys Comedy Club in Salt Lake City, UT.
