Farley Brothers

Kevin Farley (accomplished actor, writer, director) has truly established himself as a comedic presence both on the big screen and television.

Kevin P. Farley grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, as the fourth child of five children and he attended Marquette University where he earned a business degree. Farley then went to work for his father's business, but eventually moved to Chicago and studied at the famed Second City.

The minute he relocated to Los Angeles he began landing roles in films such as Tommy Boy and Black Sheep. Then Farley landed a starring role as "Doug Linus" on MTV's sitcom 2gether where he was met with rave reviews. After that Farley appeared in numerous TV series programs such as That '70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Joey, Just Shoot Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm and many more.

When Farley moved more into feature films, his unsurprising emphasis was exclusively on comedy. He appeared in the Adam Sandler animated comedy Eight Crazy Nights, and soon after The Waterboy, Dirty Work, the Cedric the Entertainer laugh-fest Johnson Family Vacation to name a few. Farley recently starred in the lead role of An American Carol playing a cynical, Anti-American "Hollywood" filmmaker who sets out on a crusade to abolish the 4th of July holiday. He is visited by three spirits who take him on a hilarious journey in an attempt to show him the true meaning of America. This comedy film, (directed by David Zucker) is a parody of liberal filmmaker Michael Moore that "lampoons contemporary American culture, particularly Hollywood." It uses the framework of A Christmas Carol but moves the setting of the story from Christmas to Independence Day. The supporting cast included Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Dennis Hopper, and Leslie Nielsen

Soon to be released this fall is the feature film Hollywood and Wine, which Farley co-wrote, directed and stars in. The film also stars Chazz Palminteri, Chris Kattan, David Spade, Norm MacDonald and Jeremy London. Next up is Farley's latest written project Back in the Saddle - a western comedy set in Wyoming.

Farley was born in Madison, Wisconsin, the son of Mary C. Anne (née Crosby), a housewife, and Thomas "Tom" Farley, Sr., who owned an oil company.[1] He was raised in an Irish Catholic family. He is the youngest brother of actors Chris Farley and Kevin Farley. He is married to actress Jennifer Herron and has two children. He majored in marketing in college, graduating in 1992 from Regis University,[citation needed] and later studied at The Second City in Chicago.

Currently he and Kevin work together on projects and tour comedy clubs around the country. Farley has received many roles from Chris's former SNL alums, such as Adam Sandler, David Spade, and Rob Schneider. His notable film work includes The Waterboy and The Benchwarmers. He also has a small role in You Don't Mess with the Zohan, Joe Dirt and Extreme Movie. He also appears on multiple episodes of Frank TV.

Host:
Jackson Jones

Jackson Jones

Jackson Jones is a hillbilly with a heart of gold, his fast paced comedy is taken from life experiences of dating strippers, being a father, and looking like a meth cook.  Originally from Indianapolis but now a madisonian, Jacksons charming souther accent and quick style of speaking reminds one of a deep voiced "Boomhauer".  His constant and uncontrollable narcissism and never ending desire for attention keeps him coming to the stage along with the fact that he doesn't know how to do anything else.  People who have seen Jackson Jones perform have been quoted as saying "I'm thirsty". "I like his hat".  "Tacos are a good idea". And "He's twice as funny as he is attractive".
