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.
Amberly is a national comedian, speaker, and author with a passion for “GRINspiring” others. She has won hearts (and funny bones) of people all over the country and loves sharing the joy of Christ with others.
She is dedicated to helping people experience the freedom found in meaningful relationships with God and others. Her bible study, “The Belonging Project: Finding Your Tribe and Learning to Thrive” was released in May 2020 by Abingdon Press. Amberly received her Master’s degree from Biola University and serves as an adjunct professor at Grand Canyon University.
Amberly has been married to Scott Neese since 1992. They have two teenagers, Judah and Josiah. They live in beautiful Prescott, AZ and love the Food Network and all things Star Wars.
Christian Recording Artist
Singer/Songwriter and Chart-topping CCM recording artist, Jonny Diaz, engages his audiences with great songs, great melodies and the ability to find humor in everyday life. His hit song “More Beautiful You” released in 2009 began to soar the charts and is still a fan favorite. He continues to write and release new songs that speak of God’s presence in the good times and bad. His songs will make you laugh and possibly cry. They will encourage and they will entertain. His most recent single “BREATHE” – was a #1 song on Christian radio.
Married to Libby for 10 years, they now have two young children, Charlie Grace and Dodger. Being in music full time for the past 12 years, leading a family and owning a gym all based in Nashville, TN keeps Jonny the Diaz family busy and their lives full as they share hope, laughter and encouragement with those they meet.
