Leland Klassen

Comedian & Actor  

Raised on a farm in the heart of Canada, Leland quickly learned that shoveling manure and weeding potatoes, although lucrative, wasn’t his passion in life. So with absolutely no clear direction or vision for his future, he did what everyone does when they find themselves in that position – he went to College. He wisely chose his classes based on whichever cute girl happened to catch his attention and after several short years of last minute cramming and late assignments, Leland graduated from the University of Saskatchewan with a degree in Anthropology.

As you might have guessed, Leland’s university education opened many doors for him in the years to come, but for some reason, he was dissatisfied working for a courier as a night shift stock boy. By this time married and with his first child soon on the way the most responsible and obvious choice was, of course, to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.

His career has led him many places around the world doing live acts, television and film. Recently He starred in two movies, “Extraordinary” and “Altar Egos.”

Leland and his wife, Carrie, have been married for 23 years and he’s been doing comedy for 22 of them! The Klassen family lives in Canada where they have raised their two sons, Cooper, 21, and Hunter, 17.

Jonny Diaz

Heath Arthur

Comedian

Heath loves connecting and laughing with people.  Whether its standup comedy, acting, hosting, emceeing, or motivating, the one word that describes him best is Entertainer.

Always looking for the funny side of things, Heath Arthur brings his unique, and sometimes snarky perspective to every show.  He uses his charming, storytelling style to point out the humor of everyday life.  His wit and genuine likeability have made him a favorite at showcases, as well as churches, youth groups, corporate events, and cruise ships.

Sally Baucke

Comedian  

All  you really need to know is that Sally is just a regular Joe, an “every woman” kind of gal who loves to wear a tiara around the house while she cleans. Sally doesn’t want to be famous, she just wants to be an encourager of people.  Sally has been married for almost 30 years, has 3 amazing sons, and a RN by education.  Sally started doing comedy through a random appearance at a church chili comedy night.

Sally loves to speak on stage, and writing her book What Didn’t Kill Me Made Me Funny! was simply a stepping stone for that. The most important thing you need to know about Sally is her Savior is the Love of her life, and the Lover of her soul.
