Meet the Comedians

ANDY GOLD
Andy Gold has quickly become a staple of the Salt Lake comedy scene. He talks about his life openly and unapologetically, winning him praise from audiences and fellow comics, alike. He took to the road as a feature comic just 1 year after he began and was headlining soon thereafter.

CHRISTIAN PIEPER
Christian Pieper  is a rising star on the Salt Lake City comedy scene. Even though he lives in the shadow of innocent, conservative Brigham Young University, his comedy is exceedingly dark and courageously so. He has a great eye for the psychological games we play on ourselves, and will unveil and joke about your  most secret impulses.

STEVE SOELBERG
Steve started performing stand-up comedy in 2007 as a New Year’s resolution. Shy and quiet at parties, Steve does comedy ‘cause he desperately needs attention. Known for his likeness to actor Kevin Bacon, Steve tries to distract you from his face by talking about his painfully nice parents, being attacked by a homeless man's sandwich, and the effects of a radioactive cat bite. 

His comedy is intelligent, subtly sarcastic, and asinine with each show gaining fans and emails from good people and fist bumps from people who do that kind of thing. As a Seattle native,  he always recycles, never uses an umbrella, and loves dogs.

Marcus
Winner of the 2007 Seattle International Comedy Competition, Marcus is probably best known as the runner-up from the 2008 season of NBC’s hit series, “Last Comic Standing”. Marcus is a constantly touring comedian who has lit up comedy clubs, colleges, and theaters nationwide. Having performed in over 250 cities in 40 different states in the last two years alone, his humor is spreading with fun and hilarious shows that leave his audiences asking for more.

In 2008, after his unbelievably successful run on LCS, Marcus self-produced his first comedy special DVD, “Second To None”.  In 2010 he self-produced two huge comedy projects: a comedy special DVD called “The Hand That Feeds”, and an comedy CD, “Hell Oh Well”.  In 2012, Marcus debuted a brand new side of himself with a musical impression show with best friend and fellow comedian, Guy Seidel.  In developing this show, Marcus and Guy crafted an incredible and mind-blowing experience that has to be seen and heard to be believed. It’s an acoustic, musical show consisting of over 75 different pitch-perfect impressions of musical artists that span from the 50s to today, covering all musical genres.

MIKE ANDERSON
Mike can be seen five days a week, delivering some serious news on KSL 5 TV. He's a field reporter and he's a comedian. Though he rarely does both at the same time, at least not intentionally.

He got his start in TV News in the very glamorous state of South Dakota. After a  few years, he moved on to Florida and eventually decided to pursue his lifelong dream to become a part-time comedian who also does the news.

Mike's comedy has been featured at the HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. He's also the winner of the STARZ "Stand Up Now" Comedy Competition. He's known for talking about his experiences as a Half-Asian, who looks Mexican… who may have been secretly adopted from a Mexican family, by a short Chinese woman. He also finds talking about himself in the third person to be a bit pretentious, which is why this bio will now come to an abrupt

HARRIS ALTERMAN
Harris Alterman grew up in Colorado, went to school in Canada, and lives in Salt Lake City. It's all very confusing…even to him.

Harris has always loved performing.  His first time on a stage, he proudly played a goat. But because his only line was "Bahhhhh", he aspired to more monologue in the future.

He would like to thank his family and his numerous comedy influences. His mom is both of those."

GUY SEIDEL
Guy Seidel became a working musician by the age of 17. His travels as a guitarist, businessman, and DJ circuitously lead him to what he always wanted to do.... Comedy.

Upon a dare by a friend, Guy tried an open-mic night and hasn’t looked back yet. Since then he has toured the country, was a finalist in the Rocky Mountain Laugh Off Comedy Competition and has worked with some of the biggest names in comedy. His take on life, music and life as a terminal bachelor is not to be missed.
