Frank Santorelli
Frank Santorelli is one of the country’s hardest working and funniest comedians. Frank headlines top comedy clubs all over the U.S. You might have seen Frank as Georgie the Bartender in his recurring role on the HBO’s “The Sopranos.” Frank has been on “CONAN,” “Law and Order,” “Law and Order Criminal Intent,” “Las Vegas with James Caan,” “Spin City with Michael J. Fox” and in “Meet the Fockers.”

Joe Yannetty
Joe Yannetty, like most native East Bostonians, is hilarious. He was raised in an inner-city Italian neighborhood, which means that being funny is not only a survival skill, it is in his blood.

Yannetty got his start at the Ding Ho Comedy Club in Cambridge, Mass., and he quickly became one of the top comedians in Boston and throughout New England, becoming a regular at all the most popular clubs in Manhattan, N.Y.

Yannetty headed west to Los Angeles, Calif., where he continued headlining clubs all across the U.S., and he has since logged more than 40 TV shows. He can be seen in and also wrote the HBO movie “SUCKERS,” for which he won a Best Screenplay award.

A move back to the East Coast brought with it morning radio on two of Boston’s biggest stations, WROR/105.7 FM and WZLX/100.7 FM, and Mr. Yannetty is currently headlining the world’s largest and most prestigious cruise lines.
