The Comedy Stop Presents Anton Shuford, Craig Carmean & Greg Vaccarello
Penn State graduate and US Navy veteran Anton Shuford started his comedy career in October of 2002. After college, the armed forces, and enough work experience, he realized that he and the 9-to-5 world would never happily marry. Once he stepped on stage for the first time in Philadelphia's Laff House Comedy Club, he knew he was finally home -- finding an inner peace and drive that nothing else had yet provided. In under two years, he was working on professional shows for comedy clubs around Philadelphia, going on to open for the biggest names in the comedy business, such as Comedy Central's Patrice Oneal and Greg Giraldo, as well as many others.

Craig Carmean is best known for his comedy songs and hilarious stand-up comedy. His work is heard on morning radio shows across the country, Sirius and XM Satellite Radio. A rising star with a huge internet following from web sites like MySpace, YouTube, Facebook, and FameCast. Craig was recently voted "Comedian of the Year" by several colleges and universities.

Greg knew that he wanted to be a comedic performer the first time he heard Jackie Gleason say, "How sweet it is!" Years of observing other people, combined with his acting ability, have helped Greg craft a unique show. During his performance you are introduced to a variety of characters. You'll encounter Uncle Jack Mahoney, the obnoxious cop, and his drunk, kilt-wearing cousin. You'll laugh hysterically as you watch Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci audition for the Flinstones. Greg closes his show with a portrayal of a narcissistic magician. It's something that you'll not soon forget. Greg has appeared on A&E's Comedy on the Road and Comedy at Club 54 on Canadian television.

Nore Davis, Joey Carroll & Uncle Larry Reeb
Nore, a new breed of comedian, delivers an energetic performance filled with witty quips, sharp punch lines, all done with an amazing stage presence. Both edgy and clean, Nore tells it like it is. Nore is a comedian for the masses, leaving no stone or topic unturned. From relationships to family, race and politics, he delivers a smash-mouth, charismatic performance night after night in the biggest comedy clubs in New York

Joey Carroll made his way onto the comedy scene on a dare. His first open mike got him his first paid gig.

Joey has been described as a cross between George Carlin and Dennis Miller. His no holds barred style has won him the respect of his fellow comedians and the laughter of his audiences. Edgy is his favorite way to work.


Known as Uncle Lar', Larry Reeb is the wise-cracking black sheep, politically incorrect relative everyone knows. Like any concerned relative Uncle Lar' wants to help. So in his own twisted way he does. He gives you "tips". Uncle Lar' offers tips on everything from marriage to lotteries to children. Always topping them off with, "That's a tip from your Uncle Lar'." Reeb is a strong, distinct, classic character, with sarcastic attitude and a sardonic wit. He conveys his concepts with rapid fire one liners. "It's a sick world and I'm a happy guy", Reeb proudly announces after stating his particularly twisted observations. Reeb didn't invent obscene phone calls or adultery, but he makes his living talking about them. In a perfect world Uncle Lar' would be unemployed. Where others cringe, Reeb thrives. His sharp wit was custom built to handle hecklers. During a performance a regretful drunk once shouted "talk about sex." Larry retorted, "your parents shouldn't have had it", and of course capped it with, "that's another tip from your Uncle Lar'.
