Jimmy Della Valle
Jimmy Della Valle’s streetwise edgy flare, macho vulnerability, and his blue-collar twists always keep you on the brink of laughter. Don’t let his young looks fool you, he is a true professional who has been making people laugh long before he stepped onto the comedy stage over a decade ago. He has been headlining at major comedy clubs and colleges in the United States and Canada. Jimmy’s act has evolved from personal topics such as his hot-tempered Italian father, his neurotic Irish mother, his sister’s African American husband, and his family’s gambling problem. His act takes you through his wild experiences with women and life’s many adventures. Jimmy is a member of the clean comedy division of EntertainmentMax.
Andrew Searles is one of Canada’s youngest headliners, performing coast to coast with no plans of slowing down.
His comedic approach about his ethnic upbringing, his ethnic and dating experiences, to his observations on topical issues will leave audiences roaring with laughter from the time he walks on stage until the time he leaves.
Born and raised in Montreal, Andrew has been named in the “Top 10 Best Stand-up Comedians in Montreal” four years straight by the Montreal Mirror, heard on XM Satellite Radio’s “Laugh Attack”, was one of the top 10 finalists in the Russell Peters XM Satellite comedy contest, hosted the Montreal show “U Got Jokes” featuring comedians from BET, had a role in the Kidnapper Films short production “SharkBoy” which debuted at the 2004 Just for Laughs Comedia Festival, and made his Canadian network debut in 2013 on the show “No Kidding”. He also made festival appearances at the Calgary Folk Festival, the Cracking up the Capital Ottawa Comedy Festival and the Natal Day Gala Festival in Halifax.
Andrew has co-produced and co-headlined 2 different Black Canadian shows; “Black in a Minute” with Kwasi Thomas which debuted in Montreal 2008 & Vancouver 2010, and stand-up comedy show African-American stereotypes, and “The Underground Comedy Railroad” tour with co-producer/performer Rodney Ramsey, which has showcased Canada’s top Black comedians every February for Black History Month since 2012.
After years of performing across Canada, Andrew debuted his headlining show, “C’est Moi! C’est Chocolat!” in March of 2013 at Theatre Sainte-Catherine to a record selling 400 tickets and not only sold-out his entire headlining weekend, but was the highest grossing weekend in Theatre Sainte Catherine’s History. Andrew once again headlined Montreal in September 2015 at the ComedyWorks Montreal with “C’est Moi! C’est Papa Chocolat!” and in September 2016 with “C’est Moi! C’est Finale Chocolat!” to once again sold-out audiences before leaving to further his career in Los Angeles.
