Don Friesen

Don is a modern suburban dad just trying to raise his kids and get through the day with a bit of money in the bank and a scrap of dignity intact. With a unique style that can best be described as frenetic and engaging, Don captures the irony of parenting, marriage and everyday absurdities through characters, voices, parodies and some of the best written routines around. He’s a wanna-be geek who constantly upgrades to the latest technology, but can never get it to work, leading to signature bits about tech support, Idiots Guides, texting and passwords.

Friesen has recently taken his smart, savvy, and highly-caffeinated comedy to the stage at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA, for the taping of his new Showtime one-hour special titled Ask Your Mom. In his first nationally released concert special, Don delivers a winning hour of clever, true-to-life "he's talking about my family up there" comedy that manages to be adult-smart yet family-friendly.

Friesen's credits include Live at Gotham, The Lewis Black Christmas Special, and Comics Unleashed. He was also featured in TBS' The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas and is a wildly popular on KLOS' 5 O'Clock Funnies and XM Sirius satellite radio.

Costello's already extensive resume continues to grow, she performed with Rosie Perez, Alan Cumming and Olympia Dukakis at the Nantucket Film Festival's Story telling event. She co-starred in Jim Breuer's pilot for Comedy Central. Her stand up reached a new level when she made to the finals of NBC's Last Comic Standing. Costello has also been a regular guest host on "Breuer Unleashed" on Sirius radio.

Harry Basil

Comedian Harry Basil "lives the movies." He’s a human movie trailer taking his audience on a wild romp through current and classic movies with a trunk of outrageous props and costumes that could fill a sound stage. Harry recreates and spoofs memorable moments from hit movies. He’s more than an impressionist as he physically and vocally takes on a wide variety of unforgettable actors and movie characters pulling unsuspecting audience members up on stage to act as his costars.

Acting is also another of Harry’s achievements. Since moving to Hollywood, Harry has appeared in several films and television shows. He landed a feature role in Francis Ford Coppola’s 1950’s period romantic comedy Peggy Sue Got Married starring Kathleen Turner and Nicolas Cage. Harry was cast as a member of Nicolas Cage’s singing group along side fellow comedian Jim Carrey. He also appeared opposite Demi More in the sci-fi cult film, The Seventh Sign and wrote himself small parts in Ladybugs and Meet Wally Sparks.

NBC chief Brandon Tartikoff caught Harry’s act at The Comedy Store and signed Harry on the spot to a network development deal. Out of that came several TV pilots, one a spin off from the hit series Family Ties.
