MArch 23-25: Justin Rupple with …

It’s been a decade since Justin Rupple graduated from the Edward R. Murrow School of Communications at Washington State University. Thanks to the school, he landed a dream internship and eventual job at KIRO Radio in Seattle. It was truly a lifelong goal of his to work for the home of the Seahawks & Mariners, considering he grew up a stone’s throw away in Issaquah. His previous radio show at KUGR Radio in Pullman was certainly a lot easier to break into than this Northwest powerhouse.

Satisfying his need to be behind the mic, he started attempting stand-up comedy in early 2006 at the legendary, but now defunct, Giggles Comedy Club in Seattle. It wasn’t until a new comedy club discovered him in late 2008 at the Seattle International Comedy Competition that Justin found his footing in the comedy scene. The Parlor Live Comedy Club hired Rupple as their first and only house host, and, for almost two years, he performed up to six shows a week at one of the nation’s best clubs.

He left his home in Issaquah in 2010 for Los Angeles to keep the momentum pushing forward. Even with the help from Seattle, it took nearly six years to find a foothold in one of the most talent rich cities on the planet. Finally this year, the Tetris pieces seem to start fitting into place. First, he shot a feature length foreign film “Operation Chromite” starring Liam Neeson to be released this summer. Then his luck continued as Dana Carvey and company tapped him to compete on the comedic impression game show “First Impressions” on The USA Network.

Feb 2-4: Dave Landau with Jeff Oskay and Kristoffer Olson

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. You’re on a tour of the familiar and prosaic, with Dave Landau as the bus driver. Then he drops his foot on the accelerator. And things start to get wild. You see, Dave Landau might appear to be just like you, but he’s not really. His mind goes to places that angels would fear to tread, and he has no problem telling you about it. The mark of a great comedian, it is said, is the ability to find jokes where others would find tears. Dave find jokes everywhere; with his own foibles and faults, to his family, to pop culture and the state of the world today.

Cutting his comedic teeth as a teenager in Detroit in the Second City’s Conservatory, Dave Landau has risen to become one of the most in-demand headliners working today. He’s appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” and was a finalist on season 8 of “Last Comic Standing.” He’s become a regular on the nationally-syndicated “Bob & Tom” radio show, and was honored as one of the top 21 club comics of today at HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival.
