A longtime Memphis favorite and international comedian, also known as the new 'Mr. Vegas' GEORGE WALLACE is coming to Chuckles Comedy House. By the age of six, George Wallace knew he wanted to be a comedian. He always enjoyed making people laugh, but he also knew the importance of an education. He attended the University of Akron, Ohio and upon graduating with degrees in Transportation, Marketing/Advertising, plus advance studies in Radio and Television from Columbia School of Broadcasting. Literally, a rags-to-riches story, Wallace went from selling rags to VP of Advertising. Still, his dream of being a comedian had a strong hold on him. Within a week of leaving the advertising field, he began to perform stand-up comedy and was offered a job writing for “The Redd Foxx Show.”
In 2004 Wallace appeared as the headlining star of his own show at The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas for a 30 day run. Sin City showed its admiration by extending Wallace’s contract indefinitely and nicknaming him “The New Mr. Vegas.”
Veteran comedian, actor and established radio personality J. Anthony Brown has performed stand-up comedy all over the country as well as internationally. The self-styled tailor-turned comedian launched his comedy career in a gong show contest in Atlanta. Soon after his comedy debut, Brown moved to Los Angeles to work in television and became a writer on The Arsenio Hall Show, and became a writer as well for such sitcoms as The Parenthood and Me and The Boys. Brown hosted two consecutive seasons of BET’s top-rated Comic View and has performed on Vibe, Def Comedy Jam, It’s Showtime at the Apollo, An Evening at the Improv and The Oprah Winfrey Show.
On a dare, Myra J. took to the stage in Los Angeles telling jokes over twenty years ago. After much encouragement from fellow comic and friend, Robin Harris, Myra left behind a career in the social services and decided to make a career as a stand up comedienne and never looked back. Making her mark in comedy led to other fields of entertainment such as television warm-up, writing, acting and radio.
Currently hitting the airwaves as the "Poster child for the Single Mom" on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Myra still performs stand up and makes appearances around the country. And even with her busy schedule, Myra always makes it a point to serve the community where she volunteers to women and children's shelters.
