The funny forefathers of Arizona comedy are coming together for one big night of laughter!

Arizona has a vibrant comedy scene and that is in part due to the contributions made by these comedy trailblazers.


Joe Corcoran spent 30 years as an actor, singer, comedian and writer. He has performed in comedy clubs and conventions from LA to New York. He has been the opening act for Jerry Seinfeld, the Righteous Brothers and more. Numerous national commercials include Miller Beer, Chevrolet and more!


Mark Cordes is an inventive comedian and humorist that has been hailed by critics as a "one man laugh factory". Having toured and worked with stars like Harry Connick, Jr., Hall & Oates, and dozens of others, it's evident that his humor and versatility is in great demand.

From his humble start at an open mic, he steadily worked his way up the comedy ladder. From the opening act to feature act to headlining the top comedy clubs and corporate events from coast to coast, Cordes has enjoyed the ride. "I realize every day how fortunate I am to do what I love. To be able to travel, meet interesting people, and make people laugh is a gift I enjoy sharing".


Michael Finney has more sides to his life than a well-cut diamond. There is an authenticity to him that seems to disarm an audience instantly, causing everyone to feel as if a friend has just stepped on stage. One reason for the respect Finney gets may be the incredible amount of entertainment he's able to squeeze out of what seems to be so little.

His confidence is a by-product of sincerity and the audience connects with it and feeds it back to him in a beautiful way. In Michael's case, sincerity and authenticity transform a simple mixture of Character, Context, Humor, and Magic into something that not only Entertains but Inspires. Many years of performing in comedy clubs have been assimilated into creating an instinct for what's appropriate at every venue ... something his Audiences (& Clients) have learned they can depend on for fun for Everyone.


Bob Kubota's penchant for dry wit, lighthearted sarcasm and deciphering life's ironies has led him to the majority of the contiguous 48 states as well as Alaska and Hawaii. The sly take that he has on his own ethnicity continually proves to be a popular feature of his act. In 1996 he became an international performer when he joined the United Service Organization (USO) and now tours regularly with the 'Comics On Duty' (Davis Entertainment) providing comic relief to American military troops stationed around the globe.
