John continues performing in clubs, writing new jokes, and traveling the country. But TV is always calling. Most recently, John did a guest role on TV One's sitcom "Love That Girl." He appeared on Comedy.TV and a guest role on a "Hannah Montana" episode. Back in July of 2005, John performed at the Montreal International Comedy Festival – Just For Laughs. Initially scheduled for one performance at their "Uptown Comedy Show," John had the audience in so much laughter, that he was asked to perform at the second show. John has also paired up with former "Living Single" co-star Kim Coles and together they have delighted audiences as well.<br ><br >After having nine successful years on network television, John Henton established a name for himself as a leading comic talent. He is fortunate to be among an elite group of actors who found success on the small screen. He found a loyal and endearing following through the lovable and sensible character of "Overton Wakefield Jones" on the FOX hit sitcom "Living Single," and the loyalty continued with fans embracing the character of "Milsap" on the sitcom, "The Hughleys." For its third season, "The Hughleys" moved to UPN, and contributed to the network's very successful Monday night line-up. "The Hughley's" wrapped its fourth and final season in spring 2002. John's stellar television work has not gone unnoticed, as he was recognized in 2001 and 2002 with an NAACP Image Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.<br ><br >Born and raised in Cleveland, John Henton never entertained the thought of a career in comedy. In 1982, while working during the day and studying computer science at night, Henton was urged by a co-worker to try his jokes at a local comedy club's amateur night. By his second night, Henton won the amateur night contest and began stand-up part time. Henton made the move to Los Angeles in 1985 and by 1988 started his stand-up career full time. <br ><br >After taking his comedy on the road for a year and winning the 1991 Johnny Walker National Comedy Search, Henton was spotted by "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson" comedy executive, the late Jim McCawley, who booked him for a performance on the show. As he finished his set, Henton looked to Carson for his approval and received much more. Henton was called over to take a seat on the coveted couch where Carson asked him if he had an agent. To Henton's reply of "no," Carson mugged, "Well, you will after tonight." It was a performance that Henton says gave his career a "serious jump-start."<br ><br >Henton has made appearances on "The Arsenio Hall Show" and "Bob Hope's Young Comedian's Special" as well as returning to "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." In January 1993, Henton starred in his own half-hour comedy special for Showtime, "John Henton: Comedy With An Attitude." John performed on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" to an overwhelming audience response. <br ><br >In April of 1993, Henton was cast in the FOX TV series "Living Single" starring Queen Latifah, Kim Fields and Kim Coles. The show received stellar ratings, and TV Guide selected Henton's character as one of the "break out" characters of the 1993-fall season. When the show came to an end after five years, Henton was proud and pleased with the work he had done on the show. He continues to be a favorite on talk shows with appearances on "Weekends at the DL," "Best Damn Sports Show" "The View," "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," "The Howie Mandel Show," "Roseanne," "Later," "Donny & Marie," "Fox and Friends" and "Politically Incorrect."<br ><br >Although Henton lives in Los Angeles, he will always call Cleveland home. He spends his free time with his adorable little girl Nicole Simone Henton. Currently, he is sharpening his golf skills.</section><section><div><div><div><div><div></div></div></div></div></div></section> http://cincinnatievents.com/8071/special-engagement-with-john-henton 06/28/2017 - Special Engagement With Christopher Titus - Cincinnati http://cincinnatievents.com/8070/special-engagement-with-christopher-titus <section ><div ><div >Employing what he's labeled "hard funny," Christopher Titus has released six ninety-minute albums in as many years. He has five one-hour comedy specials currently running on Comedy Central, and his sixth special, "Angry Pursuit of Happiness," premiered on Comedy Central on May 9th, 2015. After years of experimentation with dark and personal storytelling, he debuted his one-man show "Norman Rockwell is Bleeding" at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles. It was from this performance that the dark comedy, "Titus," was born on Fox. The show earned Titus a Writer's Guild nomination as well as an Emmy nomination, and Newsday called him "TV's most original voice since Seinfeld."<br><br>His second show, "The Fifth Annual End of the World Tour," was released in 2007 to rave reviews. Titus tackled such difficult issues as the Iraq war, racism, pedophilia and even his father's unconventional and ridiculous funeral, where he, with his brother and sister's help, spread his father's ashes in a casino. These are issues most comedians would run from, but Titus never walks into the familiar.<br><br>"Love Is Evol," Titus' third one-man show, deconstructs relationships in a way no comic has ever attempted. Titus wades into domestic violence, plastic surgery, custody and all aspects of the nightmare relationships that made him question the existence of God. This groundbreaking comedy special premiered on Comedy Central on Valentne's Day. The album and DVD were released on February 15th, 2009. Titus claims that "this show will either fix your relationship or destroy it, and either way, you're welcome."<br><br>"Neverlution," aired on Comedy Central on July the 4th, 2010. Titus takes no prisoners in this special, tackling the problems of our country, one joke at a time. He quotes, "every joke is a tiny revolution." Titus declares that we are taking our country back, namely from today's spoiled children, prescription medication, the media, technology and terrorism.<br><br>Titus' fifth special, "Voice In My Head," aired on Comedy Central in October 2013. This lighthearted show details all of Titus' biggest screw-ups, including a hilarious story about his first job as Darth Vader for children's birthday parties.<br><br>"Angry Pursuit of Happiness," which premiered on Comedy Central in 2015, is Titus at his best, and he leaves no stone unturned in his relentless pursuit for the true meaning of life. Titus covers everything from the Pope, the Boston Bombing, to his Dad's awkward, yet hilarious ED problem. In one of his most epic and darkly funny bits, Titus solves the nation's problems by "arming the children."<br><br>Titus is currently performing his newest one-man show, "Born With a Defect," to sold out theaters across the country.</div></div></section><section ><div ><div ><div ><div ><div ></div></div></div></div></div></section> http://cincinnatievents.com/8070/special-engagement-with-christopher-titus - Engaged Philanthropy Around The Globe - Cincinnati http://cincinnatievents.com/8069/engaged-philanthropy-around-the-globe <p>Join us on June 8th from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM for an inspired discussion about "Engaged Philanthropy Around the Globe" with Social Venture Partners International CEO Tim Schottman.  What can we learn and reapply in Cincinnati?  This will be an evening you don't want to miss hosted by SVP Cincinnati.  <br></p><p>This event is open to the public and includes light refreshments.

Not many comedians will devote six minutes to a single subject, especially one as seemingly mundane as a toaster or as strange as his conviction that extraterrestrials are working among us. <br ><br ><br >Jake was nominated as "Best Male Stand-Up Comedian" for the 1994 American Comedy Awards. His bizarre take on life has prompted critics to observe that he "conjures up some of the strangest imagery this side of Gary Larsen's comic strip, The Far Side."<br >He starred in his own HBO Comedy Special titled "This'll Take About an Hour," which premiered to rave reviews. People Magazine's 1992 year end issue listed "This'll Take About An Hour" as one of the Ten Best Television Shows, putting Jake in the same company as "The Tonight Show." Jake also received an Ace Award nomination for best writing in an Entertainment Special for his work on "This'll Take About An Hour."<br >Other television credits include "HBO Young Comedian's Special" and public television's "Comedy Tonight" series. He hosted Comedy Central's "Two Drink Minimum" and has appeared more than thirty times on "The Late Show with David Letterman." <br ><br >Jake was seen in the Robert Altman produced, Alan Rudolph ("Choose Me") feature film "Mrs. Parker & the Vicious Circle", distributed by Fine Line Features which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. Jake had a costarring role in a cast that included Mathew Broderick, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Campbell Scott.<br >Man vs. machine, extraterrestrials and relationships are just some of the eclectic themes that Jake Johannsen reflects upon. If anything is his trademark, according to Johannsen it is his longer, convoluted stories. "I'm talking about things that everybody can relate to and I think I have my own idea of where the problem is. I don't feel I make them deliberately bizarre."<br >Born in Iowa City, Jake attended Iowa State University in Ames in the early 1980s as a veterinarian major, later changing to chemical engineering. "I started college when the emphasis was on learning something that would get you a job." After three years in college Johannsen decided to leave the safe confines of Iowa and relocate to San Francisco to be part of the burgeoning comedy scene with such upstarts as Dana Carvey and Bobcat Goldthwait.<br >Shortly after his west coast arrival, Jake Johannsen made his comedic debut at San Francisco's Cobbs Comedy Club during an open mike night. In 1986, he won the 11th Annual San Francisco Stand Up Comedian Competition. Jake also appeared in the "HBO Young Comedians Special" and on public television's "Comedy Tonight" series. In addition, Jake hosted Comedy Central's "Two Drink Minimum," a half hour series that showcased the freshest faces in stand-up comedy.<br >Johannsen has established himself as one of the country's most prominent comedians and continues to headline across the country.</p> http://cincinnatievents.com/8068/james-johann - Special Engagement With Joel McHale - Cincinnati http://cincinnatievents.com/8067/special-engagement-with-joel-mchale <p>Joel McHale is one of the most sought after comedians and actors in the industry.
