He’s had numerous television appearances including “The Tonight Show” on NBC, CNN’s “The Larry King Show”, MTV’s “Half Hour Comedy Hour”, and A&E’s “Evening at the Improv”.   Don stars in commercials for Budweiser Beer, playing the Bud delivery guy.  He can also be seen in commercials for 7–11, Franco-American Ravioli, Little Caesar’s Pizza, and United Airlines.  Don has also appeared in the feature length films: “Air Bud III-World Pup”, “Life Without Dick” and “Macon County Jail”.  Don has guest starred on the TV series “Star Trek: Voyager”, “Babylon 5″, “City Guys”, and “Step by Step”.  Don has not lost contact with his high-tech roots. He has performed over 500 shows for major corporations and  named the #1 Corporate Comedian by the CBS Business Network.

 “We’re glad to have a show where people can just come and laugh,” says Cultural Program Supervisor Scott Buchanan.   “During the summer months the comics perform in the courtyard under the stars. It’s a lot of fun.”

Producer and host Jason Love has appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, America’s Got Talent, and over 20 national broadcasts.   He has performed overseas for the troops and on the seas for cruise lines, and was a finalist at the Cabo Comedy Festival.  Jason’s non-profit, Love & Laughter, brings free shows to cancer support communities and others in need.
