The Comedy Stop Presents Dave Landau, Sonya White & Brian McFadden
Working the road nonstop since his 21st birthday, Dave Landau has grown into a true comedic juggernaut. Finding himself much in-demand among audiences and club owners due to his deadpan demeanor and those jokes  my God, those jokes  that fluidly fly forth with breakneck pacing and perfect timing. Dave, it can be said with all due respect, is a throwback to another era of comedy. The entertaining everyman. Innocent enough at first blush; as he states his case, you begin to see where you and he have quite a bit in common. A wife, a house. An odd sense of calm in an increasingly crazy world. Youre on a tour of the familiar and prosaic, with Dave Landau as the bus driver.

White's observational comedy is enhanced by dead-on impersonations and appropriate sound effects. Both her comedy stage show and her one-woman show, "Airing Dirty Laundry," are based on real-life experiences and her fond, but irreverent, interactions with friends, family and the world at large. White's television credits include roles on the Fox Network's "Nightshift," The Family Channel's sitcom "Big Brother Jake" and MTV's national promotion for "Spring Break '98." She has played a colorful character on national promos for "The Jerry Springer Show," and done cartoon impressions for The Cartoon Network's "Pick Your Shorts."

Edgy, unpredictable and prone to manic outbursts of wild comic energy on stage. Brian McFadden is a performer whose unique style leaves audiences doubled over with laughter. His musings on dysfunctional families, dating, relationships and the absurdities of modern life have propelled Brian to appearances on MTV, Comedy Central & numerous cable comedy shows.

The Pointer Sisters
The Pointer Sisters began their formal vocal training in their father's church, The Church of God in West Oakland, California. They went on to achieve worldwide fame and have secured a place in pop music history as a dynamic female group! Their first performance in Los Angeles at the Troubadour club was hailed by critics for its versatility and range and called The Pointer Sisters "the most exciting thing to hit show business in years." Their 1973 debut album gave us the singles, "Yes We Can, Can," which reached #11 on Billboard magazine's pop singles chart. The album was certified gold and the group had become the most talked-about new act of the year.

The following year, the sisters released That's A Plenty, an album that included a bona-fide country-western tune, "Fairytale," written by the sisters. The single hit big on both the country and pop charts. As a result, the sisters became the first black female group to ever perform at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. They also became the first contemporary act to perform at the San Francisco Opera House and released a live recording of the performance. In 1975, "Fairytale" won the sisters their first Grammy Award, for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Elvis Presley later covering the tune. That year, the Pointers released their fourth album for Blue Thumb. Entitled Steppin', the record included "How Long (Betcha Got A Chick On The Side)"; co-written by the sisters, it went top 20 on the pop charts and sailed all the way to #1 on R&B. In 1976, the sisters hit the big screen, joining Richard Pryor in the film, Car Wash. "You Gotta Believe" which was featured on the film's soundtrack, rose up the R&B charts. In 1977, the Pointer Sisters released Having a Party, their last album for Blue Thumb and their last album as a quartet.
