Meet the Jokers and Jester Comedy Tour Players

Steve Mazan

Beginning his career in the same San Francisco comedy scene that produced such comic legends as Robin Williams and Dana Carvey, Steve Mazan has brought his stand-up around the world. He has enjoyed venues from clubs and colleges across the U.S. as well as corporate events, cruises, and a variety of television shows including The Late Show with David Letterman. As a writer for The Ellen DeGeneres Show Steve received an Emmy for his work there.

Performing clean, clever routines Steve has landed spots (in addition to David Letterman) on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Bob & Tom Radio Show, as well as Sirius/XM Radio comedy channels. He has also handled audience warm-up duties for television shows Deal or No Deal, among others. Adding to his resume’ are eight different trips to Iraq and Afghanistan where he performed rousing comedy shows for U.S. and coalition troops.

These are the shows that are closest to his heart and when asked if he’d do it again, Steve says, “In a heartbeat!” The subject of the award-winning film “Dying to do Letterman,” Steve’s comedy has been described as “brilliant” and “side-splitting.” His material offers layers that leave audiences howling and retrospective at the same time. Smart and silly, intelligent and ridiculous and always clever, Steve Mazan’s clean comedy keeps audiences coming back for more.

Mark Gee

Quick witted and personable, Mark Gee’s comedy inspires a wide variety of audiences. A genuinely friendly and very funny comic, Mark is a natural behind the microphone. Performing at all the major clubs nationwide and known for his relatable comedy, audiences feel like they’re spending time with an old friend whenever he performs.

Mark’s comedic journey began in San Francisco where he performed at open mic’s throughout The City and the Bay Area. Mark ultimately enrolled in the Bay Area Theater Sports (BATS), a world-famous San Francisco improvisation institute; this additional training helped add more versatility to Mark’s comedic routines. He gives a lot of credit to BATS for helping him improve his natural abilities to weave his material with improvisation. The result? The audience experiences what Mark describes as a “fresh out of the oven” act every time! A true world traveler, Mark performs full-time around the U.S. and abroad.

Currently living just outside of Sacramento, California, Mark has performed as far away as Japan, Singapore, Korea, and Canada.

Jake Daniels

Chasing a dream, before landing on the comedy circuit Jake produced several award-winning films. Two of his feature-length films (Dark Woods, The Deviant) can be found on Netflix, while some of his older short films can be found on YouTube. Known as one of the hardest working comedians today, Jake is involved with over 300 shows annually.

Touring the U.S. most of the year doing comedy shows nightly in bars, stadiums and comedy clubs, Jake has also been heavily involved in some amazing causes. These include producing and performing in fundraisers for Children's Cancer Research, as well as several different Veterans Organizations.

The "Heart Break Kid" brings his history of relationship heartbreaks to life in his act. This romantic comic flirts with topics such as: "Love at first sight," "Role playing," and the “D” word (D-I-V-O-R-C-E, not Dallas). Jake is one of those rare comedians who can get an audience to shake their heads even though they're laughing at the material.

Dan Ellison

Dan began his life in a place that may be considered by many to be the basis for much of his strange view of life; Parkersburg, WV. After graduating high school, he moved to the state of Ohio to attend college and received an electrical degree.

While it may have taken him a while to start his comedic career, after stepping on stage in December 1988 it didn’t take him long to discover that this is what he was meant to do for a living. Now, after 34 years and over 2,000,000 miles and performing in 44 states and in over 1,000 clubs across the United States, he has honed his act to a broken beer bottle’s edge.

His comedy reflects his experiences growing up in West Virginia and his BS in Divorce and Phd in Life Studies he earned at the College of Life. Previously, Dan has had the privilege to work with some of the greats, such as Ron White, Alan King, Jim Breuer, Joe Piscopo, Bobcat Goldthwait, DL Hughley! His act can appeal to many different audiences, from whistle clean comedy to some stuff as dirty as any bar will allow. If down to earth humor is what you desire. Dan Ellison is EXACTLY what you need!
