Sit back and get ready for a night of comic relief. Three of America’s funniest stand-up comedians (with numerous appearances on "The Tonight Show," "The Late Show," and "The Daily Show") join forces to showcase their original brand of humor in an evening packed with punch lines, clever writing, and hair-trigger laughs.

We welcome back Omaha native Pat Hazell who was one of the original writers for NBC’s "Seinfeld," a veteran of "The Tonight Show," a critically acclaimed playwright, and a contributing commentator to National Public Radio. Tony Deyo is a stand-up comedian known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing. He has appeared on "Conan" and "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," among others. Rounding out the trio will be Pete Lee, who was the first stand-up comedian to earn a standing ovation on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." He has also appeared on Comedy Central, NBC’s "Last Comic Standing," and "The Late Show with David Letterman."
