Fox 7 Comedy Showcase with Carl LaBove
If the mark of a great entertainer is the ability to continually reinvent, create and astonish an audience, then Carl LaBove has undoubtedly made his mark. An original founding member of "The Outlaws of Comedy", His powerful approach to stand up comedy has been filling theaters and clubs for over 30 years.
LaBove was born in Fort Worth Texas, grew up a military child, which required his family to move all around the world during his youth. At age nineteen he discovered stand up comedy with the man who would become his best friend, Sam Kinison. Together the two founded a Rock & Roll Comedy concept that would earn Billboard Magazines "Top Tour" honors by selling out theaters across the country for 5 straight years.
Skyrocketing to the biggest performance stages in the country as a founding member of "The Outlaws" in the late 80’s, and early 90's, Carl would establish himself as an unparalleled comedic force during the biggest comedy boom of the last fifty years. Twenty years after “The Outlaws," Carl continues to sellout venues and amaze audiences from coast to coast. With credits that include The Tonight Show, HBO, Showtime, two comedy CD's, a concert DVD for Journey Records and much more. There is no end in sight for Carl.

Waka Flocka Flame
Waka Flocka Flame doesn't care what you think. The riotous rapper, who penned hits like "O Let's Do It" and "No Hands," has undergone an artistic transformation since his 2010 bombastic debut "Flockaveli." He's experimented with his sound but always with the focus on growing as a rapper.
The Queens-bred, Atlanta-based MC is always thinking outside of the box on wax. When you hear Waka's scratchy voice over electro beats by Neon Dreams or Steve Aoki, it's his way of showing that trap music isn't his only trick. "I'm trying to open people's brains up," Waka says. "You don't have to be stuck in a fucking bubble. You don't have to do this kind of music because people say you are this kind of artist. I do electronic music just to get out the bubble."
THUGLI (Pronounced 'ThugLee') is Tom Wrecks and Pat Drastik, a production/dj duo based out of Toronto Canada. Pat Drastik, a former national Redbull Thre3style and DMC champion and Tom Wrecks, known for his popular remixes and Juno nominated production, teamed up in the summer of 2012. The duo's sound is inspired by a long lasting love of dirty south rap combined with a strong passion for electronic music. The outcome in their production is a perfect hybrid of both these worlds and it shows from the support they are receiving from both ends of the spectrum. From having hip hop producers like Just Blaze & AraabMuzik playing/remixing their work and receiving radio play from New York's Hot 97 & L.A's Power 106, to support from Dubstep legends like Zeds Dead & Benga and having regular play on BBC Radio 1, their sound is able to reach a broad audience thus further helping blur the lines between the world of Rap and EDM.
