Anthony J Rudisill: National Parks America's Last Refuge
A. J. Rudisill, who was born in Philadelphia PA, describes himself as a self-taught artist. Inspired by John James Audubon, he began drawing wildlife as a child. While a teenager, he relocated to Southern New Jersey and became a commercial artist. Greatly influenced by the surrounding coastal marshes, he indulged his passion for painting wildlife scenes in his spare time and became adept at the portrayal of the abundant wildlife in the area, particularly birds. As a painter, he preferred gouache over traditional watercolor and oil. When he turned his hand to sculpture, he used his firsthand observation of birds, transferring his knowledge and keen attention to detail from one medium to another.
 
Today, Rudisill’s passion is painting landscapes and seascapes, influenced by his current surroundings and by his travels throughout the United States. Preferring to work in acrylics today, Rudisill’s paintings are of an exceptional quality, so realistic they invite the viewer to experience the scene as if they are standing on the beach, cliff or mountainside.

The Comedy Stop Presents Keith Anthony, Steve Kramer & Carl Strong
In the early nineties if you were to go to a comedy club it would be hard for you not to hear about Keith Anthony. That is because he was a rising comic on the scene. After 1992 he took a turn out of show business and traveled throughout the United States working and going to various schools.
 It was unusual for the entertainer to do such a thing since he had been on five television shows and written up in many newspaper articles as a comedian to watch. Never the less, Keith saw other things in his sights to do.

You might recognize his “Stanford’s” song, which is played every week on the #1 radio show in the Midwest, The Johnny Dare Morning Show, but Steve Kramer started off by doing voice impersonations as a child. He got kicked off the school bus for impersonating both of his bus drivers and kicked out of several classes for impersonating his school teachers. Eventually, he moved on to impersonating celebrities such as Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, John Travolta, Gilbert Gottfried, and Sean Connery, just to name a few.

You have seen Comedian Carl Strong on The Tonight Show, Comedy Central, BET, and CBS. Carl Strong's brand of high energy comedy, blended with his love of music and the MOTOWN greats; includes impressions, singing and characters in his performance. CARL STRONG has toured with the Biggest and Brightest Musical Superstars of our time, performing at concert halls, casinos and showrooms coast to coast with the likes of Paul Anka, Gladys Knight, Little Richard, Chaka Kahn, Dionne Warwick, and Smokey Robinson.

David Kaye, Tom Daddario & Macio
David’s tongue-in-cheek observations have continued to set off boisterous laughter and applause in corporate boardrooms, college rathskellers, and smoky nightclubs throughout the country for over fifteen years. A former mechanical engineer and more recently, trained thespian, Kaye smartly lampoons life with countless comical vignettes. Acting as narrator and cast, he morphs into a one man comedy troupe using manic mannerisms, outlandish dialects, and contorted facial expressions to convey vividly funny living snapshots of his many off-the-wall characters.

Tom Daddario first began performing 20 years ago as a lead vocalist in bands, playing original music in New York City clubs.  He then expanded his work and began acting. He studied ‘Advanced Scene Studies’, at H.B. Studios in NYC. He has performed in such plays as Neil Simon’s “California Suite”, Agatha Christie’s “Murder at the Vicarage”, Thorton Wilder’s “Our Town”, and Christopher Durang’s “For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls”.
 
He has been a stand up comic performing in New York City for 6 years now. Appearing at Stand Up New York, Gotham Comedy Club, as well as hosting a weekly show at NYC’s Boston Comedy Club. His Credits include Comedy Central and in addition to writing and performing in the “Richie Byrne Show”, a sketch comedy show at Carolines in New York.


From the moment he was born, Macio has had a sense of humor. He had to! Being short, having a Caribbean accent, wearing his father’s clothes, and being made fun of at school, all attributed to Macio’s comedic personality. Once he lost his Caribbean accent and received some hip clothes from his cousin, things started to happen- A unique and animated comedian was born.
