Meet our Comedians:
John Fugelsang hosts ‘Tell Me Everything” weekdays on SiriusXM Insight #121 and PAGE SIX TV for the FOX network,premiering in 2017. He once got George Harrison to give his last live performance on VH1 and once got Mitt Romney’s advisor to call Mitt an ‘etch a sketch’ on CNN. John’s been murdered on CSI, nominated for a Drama League award for his off-Broadway solo show, hosted America’s Funniest Home Videos and Bill Maher called him ‘one of my favorite comedians’. He’s sold out theaters across the country with Stephanie Miller, Hal Sparks and Aisha Tyler on The Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour; their album “Volume 1” became the 1st political album to ever hit #1 on the Amazon, iTunes & Billboard Comedy Charts. He’s performed for American troops, including the humanitarian mission in Haiti. Acting credits include “CSI,” “Coyote Ugly,” “Becker,” “Providence” and “The Girl on the Train.” His new film, “Dream On,” a road trip in search of the American Dream, just premiered on PBS.
When it comes to comedy, Marion Grodin can pretty much do it all. When it comes to life, well, she’s still working on paying her parking tickets, and trying not to eat cake. Marion started out as a staff writer for the network sitcoms “It’s a Living” and “Princesses”, was put under contract to Twentieth Century Fox, and later went on to sell six screenplays. Just as she was about to embark on her seventh screenplay, it dawned on her that her father had not lovingly nicknamed her “Mouth” for nothing; she decided it was time to start saying all these funny things she was writing for other people to say… So, for the last decade, Marion Grodin has been one of the hottest comics in the country. She is a favorite at New York City’s top clubs, including Standup NY and Gotham Comedy Club, where she regularly headlines. As one of the country’s top emcees, Marion’s incredible ability to improvise has allowed her to master the art of talking with the audience. Always willing to be as self-revealing as she is probing of the audience…this affectionately edgy style has become Marion’s trademark. The result is a hilariously personal show that makes the audience feel like it was custom-made just for them. Marion has toured with Linda Ronstadt, opened for Lewis Black, Judy Gold, and Robert Klein…as well as having shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Roseanne Barr and Robin Williams.
