Unfortunately, Belynda Cleare’s comedic, writing, and performing abilities are often overshadowed by her striking resemblance to Beyonce. Even as her stand up broaches topics like poverty, aging, and death, Belynda’s bright, warm energy brings life to every room. Since moving to Philadelphia from The Great White North (emphasis on the “White”), Belynda has shared the stage with comics like Bob Nelson and Luenell. In 2015, she was featured on Amazon Prime’s Comics Watching Comics, and her one-woman show, Staying on the Right Side of Sanity, Diary of a Dirt Road Diva was the top grossing show in the Wilmington Fringe Festival for four years in a row. This show, which has captivated audiences from Nashville to Nova Scotia, inspired a forthcoming script that has made Belynda a finalist in the Yes And…Laughter Lab. Fox 29 News did a segment on Belynda’s use of comedy to cope with grief. Belynda is so committed to addressing mental health in comedy that she teaches a course on the topic at The Comics ROCK Convention, wherein she has been a presenter for the last 9 years. Her festival appearances include: Black Girls Giggle, Ladies Room, Meadowland, and Ladies of Laughter. She is a frequent guest on THE HAWK radio station, has been featured on CBC’s The National and in Nova Scotia’s Guysborough Journal. Belynda can be seen on club stages all over Philadelphia, Delaware, and New York, as well as walking past Andre 3000 in a party scene in AMC’s Dispatches from Elsewhere.
Ask any comedian in the country, they will tell you…Mike Eagan is a comedian’s comedian. This is one of those funny people that make all the other funny people stay after their set is done to watch a master. He tells the most simple stories in the most disarming – and hilarious – manner. Whether the topic is driving on a crowded highway, sharing a bathroom with his wife or visiting the family at Thanksgiving, Mike finds the humor with a quick and very sharp wit. He is so fast you can actually watch the audience trying not to laugh in fear they might miss the next side-splitting gem.
Mike has more than twenty-five years of stage experience and has made his mark from coast to coast and beyond. You can catch him regularly in Las Vegas and Atlantic City. He spent years as the mc/host/creative director of famed New York City hot spots like Catch A Rising Star and Dangerfield’s. He has also enjoyed a stellar career in radio where his quick wit and ability to ad-lib earned him the coveted morning show for a number of different stations in the New York metropolitan area. Currently he is in demand at comedy clubs, corporate events, and everywhere great comedy is available.
Watch Mike once and you will think he is making up everything that comes out of his mouth right on the spot. Watch him a number of times and you will realize that happens a lot! If you are a fan of funny and you are a fan of smart, this is one comedian you cannot afford to miss!
