Downstage Entetainment is proud to be working with the following Artists/Shows:

 

Ralphie May

Voted one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch” in 2008, Ralphie May has filmed a record-setting three separate 1-hour Comedy Central Specials in the past three consecutive years, all of which were among the networks most highly-rated. He’ll be filming a new special on October 1st at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, proving that Ralphie’s relatable comedic genius is in higher demand than ever.

Jim Breuer

With over 20 years of stand-up comedy experience, Jim Breuer remains one of today’s top entertainers and continues to win over audiences with his off-the-wall humor and lovable personality. Named one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Breuer has found success in various facets of the entertainment industry, and is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business. In addition to keeping busy on his current comedy tour “Heavy Metal Family Man,” Breuer can also be heard on his weekly Sirius/XM Radio show “Fridays With Breuer” and podcast hit, “Podcast Masters.” Jim Breuer’s acclaimed autobiography, I’m Not High:(But I’ve Got a Lot of Crazy Stories about Life as a Goat Boy, a Dad, and a Spiritual Warrior), was recently released on paperback. In the memoir, Breuer sheds light on his early struggles, his rise to fame and the many lessons he’s learned along in an extremely funny, yet personal and touching way that fans have never seen before.


  

Margaret Cho

Beginning with her early days on the comedy scene, Margaret Cho has always been the Agent Provocateur of stand-up. Never one to shy away from a difficult, or even “taboo” topic, no subject was off-limits. Her socially aware brand of comedy has made her both a thought leader as well as a teacher to those with open minds and open hearts.

Born and raised in San Francisco, Margaret Cho started performing stand-up at age 16 in a comedy club called The Rose & Thistle above a bookstore her parents ran. Soon after, she won a comedy contest where first prize was opening for Jerry Seinfeld. Still in her early twenties, she hit the college circuit and became the most sought-after act in the market while garnering a nomination for Campus Comedian of the Year. Arsenio Hall introduced her to late night audiences, Bob Hope put her on a prime-time special, and, seemingly overnight, Margaret Cho became a national celebrity. She has two Grammy Award nominations for Best Comedy Album – Revolution (2003) and Cho Dependent (2010) – and two shows that debuted Off-Broadway – I’m The One That I Want and The Sensuous Woman. She has starred in several television shows, including Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva, which is now in its 4th season. She has also written two books, broken into the music industry – quite successfully, we might add – and has become one of the funniest, most entertaining comedians in the industry.

In addition to her many accolades for her entertainment career, Margaret has been widely recognized for her work in the non-profit sector, lending her name, time and tireless work ethic to several charities, especially those involving gay rights and anti-bullying campaigns.

Her all new stand-up show, MOTHER, offers up an untraditional look at motherhood and how we view maternal figures and strong women in gay culture. It’s probably her edgiest show to date, filled with riotous observations on race, drugs, sexuality – gay-straight-everything in between, celebrity, culture, politics – nothing is sacred – least of all this MOTHER.
