A regular on the Las Vegas Strip, Derek’s act is fast, fresh, and at times, fanatical. He brings the funny with tales about his blue-collar upbringing, his divorce, the holidays and his child-free existence.

A veteran of several USO tours, Richards was chosen as one of the first performers at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba after the base began guarding jailed Al-Qaeda terrorists. The comedy tour earned Richards national coverage in Newsweek. He also has performed at U.S. base camps in Iraq, Afghanistan, and more than 15 countries. He is the creator of The Irish Comedy Tour.

Guy Fessenden

“Clever, sarcastic and enlightening” are what audiences are saying about Las Vegas based comedian Guy Fessenden. His comedy deals with the everyday challenges that we experience in our lives with a humorous and positive outlook.

Following a very difficult period of helping some of his children deal with a significant mental health disability, Guy felt overwhelmed by the sadness of seeing his children and family in pain, as well as the challenges that one sees in psychiatric hospitals. In a recent interview, Guy said, “After 20 years of watching and experiencing some of the most painful parts of life, I would like to put a little humor back into the world”.

Fessenden is a regular performer in Las Vegas and periodically tours the country. In addition, he provides motivational speeches about overcoming obstacles and the importance of remaining positive through all of challenges that we experience in our lives. Furthermore, Guy and his wife, Stephanie, run a not-for-profit agency based in New York that help thousands of people with mental and physical disabilities to connect to housing, benefits, legal and medical services.

Guy Fessenden has spent most of his life as a father and entrepreneur. It wasn’t till a later stage in life, once the things that one “has” to do were taking less time, he pursued the things that he “wanted” to do, specifically comedy and motivational speaking. When he’s not on tour, you can catch him perform regularly as the house emcee at Delirious Comedy Club in Las Vegas.

Ron Coleman

After a decade of touring as a successful comedian at the top comedy clubs across the United States and Canada including The Improv and Catch A Rising Star, Vegas based comedian Ron Coleman chose to step away the stage to raise his family. “I wanted to be there to raise my kids so they didn’t end up on Teen Mom,” said Coleman in a recent interview. Fortunately, they turned out great and

Coleman is already back onstage tearing up the mic with a whole new perspective and act. He added, “Sure, I kept a few great jokes but it’s all new stuff that’s even funnier than before.” Ron is currently touring and feels, “There is no better feeling than standing on an empty stage with just a microphone and making strangers laugh.” For the last five years, comedian Ron Coleman had been training in MMA & Boxing and after two semi-professional fights, Coleman is back onstage bringing the knock punches to the audience instead of his opponents in the ring.

Commenting on the difference between being a professional comedian and fighter, Coleman said, “Getting punched in the face seems easy compared to living in the comedy condos.” While he was first starting out in stand up, Ron Coleman and Quentin Tarantino were roommates in Southern California and during a recent interview for Robert Rodriquez’s “Director’s Cut” Tarantino credits Coleman for encouraging him to pursue his writing and directing career.

Based in Las Vegas, Ron Coleman is a regular at Jokesters Comedy Club inside The D Casino Hotel and has appeared at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, Treasure Island and The Orleans as well as the other top clubs in Vegas and across the country.
