Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career he co-starred in two independent films Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies" and "Joanie Loves Furbies". After his performances in those two films there wasn't a person who didn't know his name. He did more films, some commercials and some theater but it wasn't enough. Mark needed that instant connection. So he began his stand-up comedy career. In Marks comedy routine he melds observational humor, one liners, family humor, and humorous original songs with guitar accompaniment together, to create his own unique style of comedy. He has been compared to the likes of Adam Sandler and Louie Anderson. Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states including Nevada, California, and New York. Mark hopes to do a film in the future people have actually seen.
Iowa-born artist William Elliot Whitmore is a singer/songwriter and blues musician who uses elements of folk and alternative country to create his unique sonic aesthetic. He released his debut album The Jarret Mitchel Demo Album, in 1999 with an earthy sound that stems from his upbringing on the banks of the Mississippi River. Often performing live a cappella or with a banjo, he offers a stripped-down traditional folk/blues sound driven by his raw and raspy voice and simple instrumentation.
