Vail Laughs

Vail Laughs is based on one simple idea:
 
Clean comedy for a good price.
Entertainment standards have definitely shifted over the years. As the world keeps moving faster, it takes more energy to get our attention in the noise. Unfortunately, much of our entertainment uses shock value and other cheap antics to get it. It’s almost a celebration of being rude and insulting, bringing the audience down right along with the entertainers.
But life is funny enough without having to be vulgar!
Think about this:
 
We drive to the gym so we can walk on a treadmill. We carry these high tech devices in our pockets, the knowledge of all the world at our fingertips and we use them to send each other videos of screaming goats. Or the irony of reaching adulthood and discovering our parents actually had a point about naps.
 
What a strange bunch of creatures we are!
 
Our award winning comedians are as committed to this ideal as we are, bringing you quality entertainment month after month and leaving behind all the vulgarity and cheap antics.  Quite simply, it’s high quality entertainment you can bring your entire family to. The most important decision you have for the evening is whether to leave the kids or the babysitter at home.

 

 

Brian Kohatsu spent 20 years as an award-winning director before stepping away from the camera for a career in comedy.  He quickly found success in radio and gained national recognition when he was featured on Sirius/XM.
Brian trained with several improv troupes, before transitioning to stand up.  He now performs at various comedy clubs, casinos, churches and corporate events around the country.
​His unique style, appeal to all ages, and playful knowledge of pop culture have made him an audience favorite. He’s a gifted performer, improviser and writer

Mike James is a nationally recognized funny man from the great state of Arizona, delivering laughs in the form of stand-up comedy, sketch comedy, improv, and variety. He’s been a writer on some of the funniest television shows. In this day and age, it’s not easy to find a comedian who is genuinely funny, without having to resort to using blue language and getting way too earthy in their delivery. Mike James is one of those rare clean comedians though, with a true talent for delivering hilarious comedy.  Mike prides himself on being able to find the humor in practically any life situation, while also keeping it clean.
