Gus Tate

As a father to an ungovernable 4-year-old girl, Gus’s comedy appeals to tired men and insane women of all ages.

Gus has performed at the Boston Comedy Festival, Gilda's LaughFest, Rogue Island Comedy Festival, Big Sky Comedy Festival, and most recently the Asheville Comedy Festival. His videos have been viewed millions of times on Instagram and TikTok, and his debut comedy special "Top Gus" has over 100,000 views on YouTube.

Turner Sparks

Turner is American; his wife Ye is Chinese; and his parents, Myrna and Gary, are nuts. That pretty much covers it.

Turner Sparks’ new stand-up comedy album “Double Happiness” (released in September, 2022 by Larry The Cable Guy’s Git R Done Records/ Comedy Dynamics) went to #1 in America on the iTunes Comedy Charts and is currently in heavy rotation on SiriusXM’s comedy channels.

Sparks is also the host of the popular “Lost in America” podcast on iTunes, which is a worldwide hit going to #1 in Armenia, Albania, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, El Salvador, Finland, Mongolia, Nepal, Peru, Pakistan, South Korea, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates and his high school’s Instagram page (Jesuit High – Go Marauders).
