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 three movies, “Extraordinary”, “Sleeper Agent” 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 and Hunter.
Michelle was born in a small town in North Carolina where she made others laugh as soon as she could talk. Michelle’s talent has taken her around the world, but her southern roots still remain strong. Her quick wit and southern charm are infectious.

She’s a regular at some of the best comedy clubs in the country and her versatile show has delighted crowds at fund raisers, corporate parties, and churches.

Dan’s breakthrough came with his first major label release “Beautiful”, which peaked at #17 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart.

Dan’s insatiable penchant to see the world inspired Wherever I Go, which spawned an eight-day escapade to shoot a music video in seven countries. In 2022, Dan Bremnes returned to contemporary Christian radio with the single “Hold You Tight” which achieved a top 20 radio charting position. The song is part of his Into The Wild LP, released in June 2022.
