Hosted by Lauren and Peter, and anchored by two of Los Angeles' best improv teams, HeyDay and MAX, THE LEAGUE OF FOOLS is on the hunt for the best and most brazen comedy acts they can find: music, stand up, sketch, dance, magic - all forms of the foolish and funny are welcomed by The League of Fools in this extravaganza of irreverence.

COUNTRY JESSE STORM (aka RICHARD LEVINSON), with special vocalist guest, JAMIE FLUET! After penning Burt Reynolds's hit "Let's Do Something Cheap and Superficial" many years ago, Richard entered the dark world of jingles, winning many advertising awards, including two Clios. To atone, he writes comedy music and satiric songs, some of which have appeared in productions for MTV, National Lampoon, Fox, Showtime, and Disney Television. His CD, "Unchartables Vol. 1 Live at the Sacred Fools Theater" is heard on XM Radio, and some of his not funny songs have been heard on HBO's "True Blood" and other less critically acclaimed shows. Richard often contributes to Sacred Fools' "Serial Killers" and performs with Fred Willard's sketch group, The MOHOs." He appeared in "Louis and Keely Live at the Sahara." Also, we dug up this bio from his show "Savin' Up For Saturday Night," which was written around his deep catalog of songs. And we did that show in 2009. He's done other stuff since, including his Fringe shows "12 Bars" and "Personal Privilege," and he co-wrote the Fringe hit "Thanks A Lot: My Gratitusical!"
