Lenny Clarke: Lenny Clarke was born in Cambridge, Mass., one of eight children. He decided to pursue stand-up comedy one night when he was working as a janitor, putting himself through college at University of Massachusetts in Boston. That night, he went to the Ding-Ho Restaurant in Cambridge and saw some comics performing. Convinced he could do the same thing, he returned the next week and, "The rest, as they say, is history!" he exclaims. Clarke spent several years as the host of the open-mike nights there and has traveled the world as a stand-up comic. His comedic abilities captured the attention of Rodney Dangerfield, who gave him his first big break, casting him in Nothin' Goes Right. He and Dangerfield also worked together years later on Meet Wally Sparks. After years of hard work, Clarke was "discovered" at the Montreal Comedy Festival. He had his own series, the eponymous Lenny, which ran for 18 episodes. Other TV work includes The John Larroquette Show, hosting The Sunday Comics, and appearances on Touched by an Angel and The Love Boat: The Next Wave.
Scott Higgins: Scott Higgins first interest in performing came at a young age. He used to perform impressions of family members at family functions. In high school he was thrown out of biology class for doing an impression of the teacher. He was voted class clown too little surprise. In 2000, he was persuaded to perform by good friend comedian Cal Verduchi. In 2001, one year after his restart, Scott was a runner up in the Sam Adams Comedy Festival in Rhode Island. He has been heard on radio including 95.5 WBRU in Providence, RI and XM Satellite Radio nationally. In 2006 he appeared in his first movie “Street Players” a Road Rambler Films production. Scott’s view of everyday life through the absurd male point of view continues to be a hit with crowds everywhere he performs.
