Jerry Farber's unique style of hip piano finesse and warm-blooded humor endears him to fans. Best of all, he personalizes each performance, weaving his audience into each routine. He performs at a near exhausting pace that leaves a crowd roaring at this Georgia Football Fan / Redneck routine and mesmerized by his music. Fans have voted Jerry One of the Top Five Celebrities in Atlanta in an Atlanta Constitution / WSB Radio Poll. He was elected Entertainer of the Year by Atlanta Magazine three times in recent years. Jerry was also featured in a short documentary about his life as an older comedian on the road called "Jerry-atric: One Comic's 77-Year Climb to the Top of the Bottom".
Exploding onto the comedy scene, young Atlanta comedian Josh Harris has experienced an impressive rise over the last few years. Hailed by Creative Loafing Magazine for “combining frat boy silliness with a trap star mentality,” his high energy performances and one of a kind material made him a semi-finalist on Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes. In 2009 NBC flew him to LA to compete in the finals of the nationwide talent search Stand Up for Diversity, which showcased the country’s ten freshest comedians at The Comedy Store. Most recently he performed a nationally televised comedy set for Bounce TV’s “Off The Chain” hosted by Rodney Perry from “The Monique Show.”
In 2014 Josh launched a Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund his debut musical comedy album I’m Here You’re Welcome. Securing many album pre-oders, the project raised nearly twice as much as projected and finished out as the 8th most popular Kickstarter campaign in the country out of over 30,000 projects. The album is a collaborative project featuring Josh Harris as well as vocalists from American Idol, The Voice, and some of the best music producers in the country.
In 2015 after nearly a year and a half in the studio Josh Harris released his debut musical comedy album “I’m Here You’re Welcome.” In its first week the album hit #3 on the iTunes comedy charts and #13 on the Billboard Comedy Charts.
Josh gives all the glory and credit to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the source of his, peace, joy and many blessings.
