Daniel Eachus – Headliner
Daniel Eachus is a rising young star in the comedy world. At only 23, Eachus has the chops of a comedy veteran and people are taking notice. Born and raised in Fresno, CA, he was surrounded by farms, but didn’t want to grow raisins for the rest of his life so he turned to comedy to get him out. For college, Daniel’s wish came true and he left Fresno to study in Long Beach. By day, he was a student, by night he performed on the stand-up comedy circuit. After just one year of nightly performances, he became the youngest finalist ever in the “Funniest Comic in Los Angeles” contest held at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club. He’s been entertaining audiences ever since.
Eachus has been performing stand-up and improv throughout the nation’s clubs and recently was featured on Comedy Central’s“Up Next” and is scheduled for an appearance on Sideshow Network’s “Five Spot.” A finalist or winner in scores of comedy competitions including the World Series of Comedy, Orange County Improv Cup, Up Next Regionals, Flapper’s Uncle Clydes and more, he’s considering expanding his trophy shelf.
But doing stand-up and improv is not enough for Daniel Eachus. When he’s not on stage making people laugh, he’s making people laugh at their screens. Daniel acts, writes, and produces the comedy sketch series, “Bigfoot Chasers” and appeared on the MTV show “Jerks With Cameras”.
With more than 20 years experience Johnny is a sure fire crowd pleaser. This experience gives Johnny the ability to perform in some of the most demanding situations such as his LFOR Tour for the troops over in Iraq! Johnny’s humor is wild and exciting without being offensive or vulgar.
Armando Anto – Headliner

After earning his BA in Finance, he turned his virtuoso talent into a business, embarking on a world tour of violin concerts. Performing and teaching his art for over a decade, Armando began implementing more and more comedy in his performances. Armando believes that in order to be successful, you have to surround yourself with successful people. This explains all the mirrors in his home.
He understood that laughing opens the heart and mind, and that people understand any concept better through humor. Following his twin muses, music and comedy, he has established himself as a standup comedian in Los Angeles. Armando feels he never spends enough time with himself.
For the last 10 years, Armando has been perfecting his unique style of comedy, utilizing his decades of classical violin mastery, his guitar skills, and even breakdance in his act. Discovered in Hollywood, he won first place in his very first stand up comedy competition. He now performs all over the US in various comedy clubs, colleges, competitions and theaters. Even when Armando brags, he is the best at bragging.
