Sunda Croonquist is Black, White, Jewish, and Swedish and she's about as twisted as they come - which explains the straightjacket. She headlines every Saturday night at the world-famous Laugh Factory on the iconic Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. She hosts her own weekly talk show, James & Sunda, on the Jewish Life TV Network. Sunda's outrageous characters include Persian Princess Sherazade Nopayzade and recent North Korean prison camp guard Kim Kim. Sunda captured headlines around the world when her mother-in-law actually sued her for defamation because of the jokes she made on stage at her mother-in-law's expense. Sunda has produced her own comedy shows including Femmes Fatales, one of the longest-running female comedy showcases and is Chairperson for the annual Laugh Off, benefiting Gilda's Club in Northern New Jersey. Sunda is a regular on the talk-show circuit including The View, and the Today Show among others.

Mr. Drysdale is a former Beverly Hills banker to a storied Oil family. This is the first Stand Up tour for the "laugh wonder from down under!" He's insanely funny, he often skips his meds, and his Australian accent sometimes requires the services of a translator. He literally has millions of secrets that he may or may not reveal on this tour. He's not the least bit shy but he is kinda new at this stand-up thing, so a warm reception would go a long way towards encouraging him to reveal all!
