The Funny Guys:
AJ Smith For over 30 years AJ Smith has been entertaining audiences at comedy clubs, business conventions, on cruise ships in the Caribbean and at Cajun festivals across the U.S. He has appeared in motion pictures and documentaries, recorded several performance videos and co-authored several books on Cajun Humor.
Ed Roy Born on the bayous of South Louisiana in the town of Grand Coteau, (Ko-Toe) Ed is a full “pedigreed” Cajun and speaks English, French and Spanish…sometimes all together at the same time. He has a Cajun Mother, Cajun Father and even a Cajun cat!
John Paul Morgan was born February 19, 1964, and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. The cultural, political and economic diversity of that city laid the groundwork for his development as a performer. John is one of nine children and after high school he attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana Lafayette) where he earned degrees in English, Political Science, and Interpersonal Communications. It was during his college career that John discovered he had the gift of comedy.
