With the name “Vladimir,” few people expect a Dominican from The Bronx to take the stage. His comedic style is the fruit of an immigrant Dominican family living in the cultural mecca that is New York City and is described as an elegant combination of urban grit and intellect. He began polishing his wit in the concrete jungles of The Bronx and Washington Heights and after graduating from Wesleyan University launched into Standup Comedy. He is an NBC Standup for Diversity Finalist and has been featured on “Gotham Comedy Live” on AXS TV and NUVO TV’s “Standup and Deliver”.
Vladimir tours nationally and is a regular in the New York scene performing at The Stand, Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, and the Comic Strip Live. He is also a Diversity Scholarship Winner at The People’s Improv Theater where he is also taking writing courses. Whether discussing his Mother’s obsession with Tropicana orange juice, traveling to college without luggage, or telling stories of his outrageous dad, you will enjoy this artist weave a hilarious fabric of truth and absurdity.
Pamela Werts knew at age 19 that she wanted to make people laugh. When her father asked what she wanted to do with her life, she replied, “I want to be a stand up comic”. His reply? “Not an option!”. Years later, she decided to follow her desire despite his disapproval and never looked back. Since then, Pamela has been instrumental in building Chicks Are Funny, a successful monthly all female show at Funny Bone Comedy Clubs. Pamela produced and hosted Chicks Are Funny for three years in Syracuse, NY. She and her co-producer built the Chicks Are Funny show to being one of the most successful shows at the Syracuse Funny Bone. The show consistently had an audience of 200-300 every month. Pamela went on further to produce and host Chicks Are Funny at the Hartford, CT Funny Bone for two years. Pam has headlined in NYC at such clubs as The Broadway Comedy Club and The New York Comedy club and she continues to feature at the famous Caroline’s on Broadway. She has opened for such comedy giants as Richard Lewis and Judy Gold and Louie Anderson. Pamela is also a comedy writer for Rochester and Syracuse Woman Magazines.
