“I dropped out of West Point to Become a Comedian… probably the greatest service I will ever do for my country.”
MacArthur attended West Point and became a National hero.
Eisenhower attended West Point and became the President of the United States.
Ross Bennett attended West Point, dropped out and became a comedian.
The mid-70’s were a different era, and West Point was admitting a different kind of cadet when Ross Bennett was sworn in on July 8, 1975. But by 1977 Ross had decided that he wanted to take aim and fire jokes at nightclub audiences. So he undertook a giant career change, he dropped out of West Point, and landed right square in the middle of the comedy explosion that was taking America by storm.
For 30 years Ross has led a comedy attack. Armed with an expressive delivery and real life topics. Growing up with a father who was a Marine Colonel (a nice mellow guy!), grade school snow days, disastrous golf games, catastrophic water skiing outings and middle age medical procedures. ROSS BENNETT is a high-powered performer who takes his act to the audience and comes back with a victory every time! Seen on dozens of television shows, including: The Late Show with David Letterman, 5 appearances on Comedy Central’s Tough Crowd W/ Colin Quinn, 4 appearances on Evening at the Improv.
Tony Deyo is a comedian known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. New York City’s Village Voice calls him “one of the tightest joke writers in the business.” In 2013 he made his late night television debut on Conan. Within a year, he had added appearances on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen.
Humorist, motivational speaker, TV & radio personality, actress, author, blogger and entrepreneur are all titles fitting for Karith Foster. She is one of the hottest comics to come out of New York City according to both The Hollywood Reporter and Backstage Magazine who named her one of the “Top 10 Comics to Watch.” She has made a name for herself as national headliner for being a clean, funny African-American comedian. Karith travels nationally and abroad bringing humor and inspiration to all of her audiences and has appeared on Comedy Central and the Today Show.
Robyn became a regular in the NY comedy club scene and highly sought after in the fundraiser scene, performing frequently for all types of charities. She was in the NY Comedy Festival and won 1st place in the Hoboken Comedy Festival Competition. Soon after Robyn was named 1 of the top 5 stand out comics listed by CBS.com. You have seen her on TV shows such as Raising McCain on Piviot TV, The Bethenny Show on Fox, The Little Couple on TLC and most recently on Gotham Comedy Live on AXS TV. Her favorite project to date; a featured role in ASAP Rocky’s music video Shabba Ranks- doing what else- eating cake!
