Through the ages we have needed the Jester to point out that "the Emperor has no clothes.” We used canaries to warn us when the air in the mines was becoming thin and dangerous. In the tradition of “That Was the Week that Was," "Firesign Theatre," Lenny Bruce and George Carlin, Fake Comedy Radio Hour offers an expertly produced look at the avalanche of Fakery that fills our lives. Operating from an underground bunker in an undisclosed location, Fake Comedy Radio Hour delivers pointed topical satire for the new millennium.
JOHNNY STEELE is a veteran comedian, some-time talk show host, writer, humorist, political satirist, acclaimed actor and all-around loud mouth commentator. He’s the former host of several radio and TV shows including The Live 105 Morning Show, THE SHOW on KRON 4/Bay TV, The War On Error Radio Hour on Green 960. Johnny is a past winner of the San Francisco International Comedy Competition and has performed comedy across the US, Canada, and overseas for 30 years. Johnny has been teaching comedy for 15 years and is currently wrapping up his book, 50 Quick Comedy Tips. He has written for corporate CEOs, Grammy winning musicians, and Academy Award winning actors.
Originally from San Antonio, Texas, MARI MAGALONI moved to New York City to attend a prestigious theater school, soon finding herself exceptionally busy in the local theater/television scene, appearing in many productions including Law & Order. She left her burgeoning career to move to the Bay Area to raise the love of her life, Max. Since then, Magaloni has appeared in many local theatrical productions, films and revues. She has also performed as a stand-up, winning competitions and praise from peers and critics by regaling audiences with her unique hysterical blend of family, heritage, motherhood and a righteous sense of good and evil, right and wrong and black, brown and white. She recently cut a CD of satirical sketches with Johnny Steele and Michael Bossier as the Fake Comedy Radio Hour.
MICHAEL BOSSIER, a third generation San Franciscan native, has performed Stand Up Comedy world wide from the beaded curtains of Paris's Follies Burlesque to Catch A Rising Star in Las Vegas, from chicago's Second City Stage to England's Comedy Store. Bossier's masterful stagecraft began under the tutelage of SNL's Del Close and the mother of Improv Viola Spolin. Bossier received the San Francisco's Improv Festival's Lifetime Achievement Award for his group Spaghetti Jam. He also founded and directed the world famous Comedy Store players. He performed as one half of the comedy due, Deb and Mike and is currently head writer for San Jose Stage Company's Monday Night Live and Will Durst's "Big Fat Year End Kiss Off Comedy Show." And this past year Michael, along with Johnny Steele and Mari Magaloni, have formed the Fake Comedy Radio Hour.
THE TIGER CLUB, a fluid collective of musicians playing Baxter Robertson’s wildly imaginative compositions, an eclectically evocative brand of instrumental pop conjuring exotic locales, intrigue, wry wit, elegant cool, mystique, silken soul, and lush sensuality, among other tastefully stylized but playful moods. The Tiger Club was born in 2004 from the need to play adventurous but accessible music that harnessed Robertson’s compositional skills and his desire to connect people through live music. Their latest record Mephisto Island (Aeneid Recording Company) showcases a distinct band identity threaded through a vibrant tapestry of complimentary and contrasting styles.
