ReGroup Foundation presents Comedians Vinnie Montez, John Novosad (Hippieman) and Anthony Torino for a Special Standup Comedy Event at the Brass House, Austin, TX on September 30, 2016 for two shows at 7:00 PM & 9:00 PM.

Vinnie Montez is a compact ball of kinetic energy waiting to explode. A Colorado native with a strong Mexican heritage, his mom and dad were the biggest influences in his life; they weren't afraid to be themselves or stray from the traditional Mexican culture, instilling core values while letting him find his own way. As his physical dimensions will attest, good food is always a priority especially good Mexican food; the hotter the better. Nevertheless, he has been known to enjoy the occasional burrito or two (or five or six) from the neighborhood Taco Bell.

Always the center of attention at any social gathering, he got into comedy in 2007 with a trial performance at Comedy Works in Denver. A bit of an adrenaline junkie, it gave him a taste of the spotlight, and like a good taco, he found he wanted more: since then he performs regularly at Denver's Comedy Works and has appeared at venues across the nation, including the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas. Vinnie has shared the stage with the likes of Paul Rodriguez, Louie Anderson, Chris D'Elia, Joe Rogan, Lisa Landry, Gina Brillon, John Crist, Josh Blue, Bret Ernst, Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald, Joey "Coco" Diaz, Phil Palisoul and many more.

John Novosad, a.k.a. Hippieman is a stand-up comedian based out of the Comedy Works in Denver, Colorado. John has performed in clubs, theatres and weird little coffee houses across the country for almost three decades. Yes, there were some day jobs along the way. John grew up in Boulder, Colorado - which is a damn good place to be from if youre Hippieman. John made his network television debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, has written a screenplay Hippieman: The Movie and is currently working on a comedy pilot. In the future John will continue to perform and develop Hippiemans Plan for America comedic solutions to our nations problems. And be happy.

Anthony Torino is a child of the 70s, veteran of the 80s, and professional of the 90s. The new millennium began with a wonderful wife and financial wealth. Five years later, he was a widower, broke and an ex-con. His comedy is drawn from his life and his 25+ years as a therapy provider and counselor. Anthony Torino takes a rational look at an irrational world in a sobering, non-politically correct, and hilarious fashion.

All of the comedians will be performing their acts of hilarity. You don't want to miss this show!
