Steve Coltrain

Steve Coltrain is a veteran comedian, writer and public speaker who has appeared in comedy clubs for over twenty years. During that time he has worked in some of the top clubs in the country and has worked with a number of comedy's biggest stars including Kevin Pollak, Lewis Black, Louis CK and Robert Schimmel. Steve's act appeals to all walks of life and has led to the development of his keynote speech "Make the Connection", a program that focuses on using humor to deal with the many challenges we face. Steve's material deals with family, work, dealing with adversity and developing strategies to cope with a rapidly changing world. These people have said some nice things about Steve, but he's not sure why...

"There's funny and there's Steve Coltrain funny. I've been a comic since 1979 and during that time I've owned over fifty clubs, so let's be honest; I hate comics. Well, not all of them. Steve is not only a thinking-man's comic but he can mix it up anywhere from Maine to Mississippi. Over the years, I've booked Martin Lawrence, Patton Oswalt, Kevin James and Ray Romano, so I know funny. With a finely-tuned sense of irony, Steve not only delivers but he makes me hate comics a little less." Chip Franklin, Radio Host, 7 time Edward R. Murrow Award Winner for Comedy Writing; regular on CNN

"I cannot say enough great things about Steve Coltrain. When I started my charity, Steve offered his comedic talents (pro-bono) to raise money for our veterans and "Comedy for a Cause" was born. He recruited his friends and has helped raise over twenty thousand dollars. We continue to enjoy his support and can't thank him enough. He draws packed houses and the audience response is amazing." Deborah Snyder, Founder and CEO of Operation Renewed Hope Foundation

"Steve Coltrain is one of my favorite comedians. He has been a frequent guest in studio at ESPN 980, making us laugh while promoting his work with homeless veterans. I've had the pleasure of seeing him live several times and I always leave laughing...funny and smart." Scott Jackson, ESPN 980

"Our community has been incredibly fortunate to include Steve and his talent, energy and dedication. His efforts of behalf of homeless vets has been tireless. His particular brand of self-deprecating humor allows people to laugh and reconnect in a meaningful way. Steve would be as asset for any corporate gathering." Alisa Parenti, Bloomberg News Anchor

"I like your anger." Jonathan Katz said that to Steve after watching him perform one time.

Kevin Israel

Kevin Israel has a resume that will make you look twice. If you can think of a job, Kevin has probably worked it during his 40 years on earth. He was a lawyer, a political operative, a communications specialist, and, of course, a stand-up comedian.

For over 15 years Kevin had been entertaining audiences with an act forged at his family’s dining room table, in his fraternity house, and in the halls of law school. Kevin has an act unlike any other, because it is his story and his alone. With razor sharp wit and the ability to improvise that only a lawyer could possess – once you see him, you won’t forget him.

Considered one of the top political operatives in New Jersey, Kevin left that life, and a lucrative position at a law firm, to pursue his one true passion – comedy. Now he tours the country regaling audiences with his decades of life experience. From stories of his mother, to relationships, to the reality of growing up the only Jewish kid in his school, when Kevin leaves the stage you won’t just feel that you’ve seen a great show, you’ll know you made a friend.

Kevin has worked with some of the top acts in the nation. He has appeared on NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX. He guest hosted the Sirius Satellite Radio RawDog comedy morning show and he won the prestigious Gilda Radner’s Laugh-off in 2013. Now he stars in his own web series, “B.R.O.’s” and cohosts the Comedy Point Radio show.
