He's launched television shows, made guest appearances in movies, and was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Earl David Reed, Joe Bronzi & Uncle Larry Reeb
Earl's Bio EARL DAVID REED is a trendsetter in the comedy and radio world. Within his 15 years of stand up comedy, Earl has performed at over 100 comedy clubs and colleges and is a favorite in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Along with his 10 years of morning broadcasting experience and numerous television appearances, his improvisational style has become a favorite of radio and stage audiences all around.

Joe began comedy in the early 90's by winning the title of "Funniest College Student in the Hudson Valley."  Then Joe went on to win the "Funniest College Student in New York," and today he performs at clubs and colleges along the East coast.  Bronzi has opened up for many of the industries' top talents, such as David Brenner, Robert Klein, Bobby Collins, Kevin Pollock and John Pinette.  Joe has also appeared in the Independent Films "Due Diligence" and "The Cleaning Lady.

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 another tip from your Uncle Lar'.
