Aries Spears made a name for himself as one of MADtv's longest-serving original cast members. Known for his easy-going vibe and candid bits about race and culture, Spears has made frequent guest appearances on The Best Damn Sports Show Ever and a number of national talk shows. He got his stand-up start at the early age of 14 and landed a role in Spike Lee's Malcolm X a few years later. He's since starred in his own Comedy Central and Showtime specials and has consistently cracked up audiences with uncanny Bill Cosby, Red Foxx and Eddie Murphy impersonations. Learn More

Super funny guy - the kinda funny where you think, "I shouldn't think this is funny. This is so wrong!". I was squeeling the whole time. He does a great job heckling the crowd - Don't see him if you are sensitive or take yourself to seriously.
A true “comic’s comic,” Bobby Slayton, often referred to as “The Pitbull of Comedy,” has been performing his own intense style of stand-up comedy for over 20 years, becoming one of the best known, respected, and energetic comics working today.
Audiences around the country may recognize Bobby from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as “Get Shorty,” “Ed Wood,” “Bandits” and most recently “Dreamgirls.” He’s been seen on dozens of television shows including “The Tonight Show” and “Politically Incorrect.” Bobby’s many appearances on HBO have included "Comic Relief "& his own stand-up special. He was a series regular on the HBO series “Mind of a Married Man,” and played ‘Joey Bishop’ opposite Ray Liotta and Joe Mantegna in the critically acclaimed film “The Rat Pack.”
Slayton’s distinctive gravelly voice has often been heard on animated shows like “Dr. Katz’” and “Family Guy,” as well as many popular radio shows across the country including Howard Stern, Kevin & Bean, and Tom Leykis.
The NY Daily News called Slayton “Armed and Dangerous” and the Las Vegas Review Journal pointed out that “Slayton’s refusal to comprise his art has always made him worth a special trip.”
