- WhoComedy Night w/ Mike Gaffney and Mark DeMayo
- DateDecember 14, 2013
Mike grew up in a tough New Jersey neighborhood where he quickly learned he needed to get tough or get funny...He’s not that tough but Mike Gaffney is very funny. Mike's style of comedy is very conversational discussing day to day life not only as a single dad but as a friend, son, uncle and all around good guy. Wherever Mike performs, whether it be in a New York City comedy club or a town fundraiser, Mike wins audience's love and respect with his personal take on life and fatherhood. People all over, find Mike very relate-able and likable. His high energy and quick wit keep audiences engaged and entertained the entire time.
Mike took to the stage at 32 which is a little older than most. He spent a few years grinding it out before taking a break like many comics do. In 2009, Mike decided that his love for comedy was too strong, so he hit the stage full speed ahead and hasn't slowed down. Mike works regularly at most clubs in NYC as well as comedy clubs up and down the east coast. You can also hear Mike on his weekly podcast "The Disgruntle Dad."
Mike recently made his debut television appearance on “Gotham Comedy Live” for AXS TV.
Mark DeMayo is fresh off taping Gotham Comedy Live for AXS.TV. He is a regular at the top Comedy Clubs in NYC & Tri-State area. He headlines Casino Resorts and has toured College Campuses throughout the country. Mark worked his way to the top of the comedy business, all the while continuing to fight crime as a NYC Police Detective.
Recently retired from The NYPD, Mark DeMayo is now free to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, about what its really like to be a NYC Cop. Marks stories about his days on the force are hysterical, insightful and interesting and will soon be included in his One Man Show perfectly entitled “20 & OUT”. Mark also has jokes to spare on what its like to be married for a really, really long time. “My wife is beautiful, shoe works out, has a great body. Sometimes I look at her and think. Wow, I wish I could sex with her”. Marks teenage children do not escape his wrath either. “My son is 16, the other day he said, dad can I have a sip of your beer? I said Absolutely not!…go get your own…
Mark’s has been featured on ShowTime’s “White Boyz in da Hood” Comedy Centrals “Laffopolooza” Si-Tv’s Latino Laughter and the film “Stand-Up 360”.

Rhett Tyler is best known for his virtuosic guitar playing and high-octane, house rockin’ performances riddled with sizzling guitar licks forged from raw emotion and spirit. In addition to master guitarist, he is also an accomplished songwriter, vocalist, and producer, Rhett’s passion, heart, and soul are evident throughout his music regardless of whether it is a simple chord change, subtle single note bend or mind boggling explosive run. Music reviewer and author, Don Wilcock appropriately wrote ”Rhett is not just proficient throughout the spectrum of today’s blues, he’s a universal master of all… You gotta hear him live!”.
Born in San Antonio, Texas, and raised in Mississippi, Ohio, and St. Louis, Rhett grew up listening and learning about music and the blues. His earliest influences include his father, a talented classical, boogie, and blues pianist, and his mother, a published poet. Rhett realized his own God-given talent at the age of 15 when his parents gave him his first electric guitar.
Rhett was accepted by Julliard in the early ‘70s, but without an available guitar program he opted to attend Mannes College of Music and then went on to Berkley School of Music all the while feverishly honing his skills as a player, performer, and writer. He soon found himself on tour as bandleader for R&B recording artist Ruth Copeland. On this tour Rhett got a taste of his future receiving a standing ovation at the Baltimore Civic Center for his electrifying featured guitar solo. During the latter part of the 70s and early 80s, Rhett had the pleasure of working with many notable artists on both live and studio projects.
In the mid-80s Rhett formed the band, Early Warning. After undergoing a period of stylistic exploration and soul-searching, he brought the band’s focus back to his first true musical love, the blues. His music is certainly rooted in the tradition of blues, but Rhett incorporates his jazz, rock, and gospel influences to create an innovative modern musical blend with his signature guitar style. Rhett continues to push the boundaries of his creativity with each recording and performance. In 2011 he was honored as an inductee into The Blues Hall of Fame as a Master Guitarist from NY
Rhett Tyler has independently recorded and released eight CDs. His latest recording is entitled “The Rhythm The Power and The Blue” (2013). Prior CDs include: “Total Package” (1992), “My Passion” (1997), “Live at Manny’s Car Wash” (1999), “Don’t Put Me In No Box” (2003), “A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’” (2006), “Live @ HomeGrownRadioNJ.com” (2007), “Mad Dogs and Angels” (2007). He has performed at many prominent festivals and venues, including the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival, Fleet Blues Fest, Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Festival, and Treasure Coast Food Bank Blues Festival. He has shared billing with many distinguished blues artists, including Johnny Winter, Lonnie Brooks, Elvin Bishop, Delbert McClinton, and John Hammond, to name a few.
