Olivia Allen-Arrington (Headliner)Olivia Allen-Arrington Granddaughter, daughter and sister of cops. Olivia Allen-Arrington thought one day she would follow that fine family tradition but instead she decided she would buy her own coffee and donuts. Olivia's natural humor is drawn from growing up on the south side of Chicago in the Catholic school system. Never sheltered from the ups and downs of life, she always managed to see the brighter side of every situation. Olivia Allen-Arrington is one of America's hottest rising, hard working, stand-up comedians! This mother of three teenage boys spans the globe touring military bases, Theatres, and comedy clubs all over the U.S., South America, Europe and Asia. Olivia's level of consciousness occurred 13 years ago when she became a huge fan of comedy, attending a local Houston comedy club every weekend as a devoted audience member. Suddenly a thought occurred to her....."Hey, I can do this!" After getting her courage together, along with 5 minutes of comedy material, Olivia took the stage. She has toured with Steve Harvey as well as opened for musical greats such as Angela Bofill and Alex Bugnon. Olivia's refreshing brand of humor serves as a great diversion for troops all over the world. Her routine covers subjects from male-female relationships to dieting to raising boys . Olivia has performed on Black Entertainment Television's nationally syndicated comedy show "Comic View" as well as BETs Action PPV Step Up To The Mike taped in Jamaica. Also SiTV's "Insid eJokes and "The Latino Comedy Festival."
Jim McNally (MC)Jim McNally is a comedian with an irreverent outlook that blends big city wit with small town cheekiness.
His Irish, story-telling roots shine through in his performances which weave observations of the everyday into stories from his own life to highlight the absurdities of the world we live in.
Jim’s spontaneous and engaging style, quick wit, and knack for seeing the outlandish make him a natural, versatile performer who leaves audiences doubled over with laughter and wanting more.
Although Canadian and American audiences have been howling at Jim McNally for over a decade now, he is becoming more and more recognized lately after stellar performances at the Ha!lifax Comedy Festival and on CTV’s “Comedy NOW!”.
In 2005, he was the first comedian to get a standing ovation at Ottawa’s Absolute Comedy and was asked back to headline their first anniversary weekend.
