(Aug. 20, 2010)--Comics Dave Coulier and Tommy Johnagin will headline UTSA Roadrunner Days events this year in "An Evening of Comedy" at 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 25 in the Convocation Center on the UTSA Main Campus. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the event is free to the UTSA community.
Coulier is most famous for his role as Joey on the long-running television show, "Full House." Johnagin is on NBC's "Last Comic Standing," where he is among the top five comics and in the running to win the contest.
UTSA students will receive priority seating for the performance. With some mature material, audience discretion is advised for the comedy event.
Dave Coulier (pronounced Cool-Yay) proves that nice guys can finish first in Hollywood. As an actor/comedian/voice-over artist, his talents are much in demand. He is best known for his work on the long-running hit ABC series, "Full House," which aired from 1987 to 1995. The show still is seen on Nick at Nite, TV Land and ABC Family and is syndicated in more than 100 countries.
Coulier followed this success by hosting ABC's "America's Funniest People," "The World's Funniest Videos," Nickelodeon's "Out of Control" and the award-winning series "Animal Kidding" on Animal Planet. He will host his second season of "America's Most Talented Kids" for the iNetwork. He also will voice the characters of Felix the Cat, The Professor and Rock Bottom in upcoming "Felix the Cat" animated feature films for video release.
Highly regarded for his voice-overs, Coulier's credits include Saturday morning cartoon favorites such as "Scooby Doo" and a new version of "The Jetsons." You heard his versatile voice in Jim Henson's Emmy Award-winning animated series "Muppet Babies" as Animal and Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, and as the two old guys in the balcony on the original "Muppet Show."
Coulier's stand-up act has earned him regular appearances on NBC's "The Tonight Show" and HBO's "Detroit Comedy Jam" and "Comic Relief." He continues to enjoy sold-out, stand-up gigs at colleges, nightclubs and theaters across the country.
Tommy Johnagin started his stand-up career at age 18. He dropped out of college at 21 to pursue his dream and become a full-time comedian. Johnagin vows one day to make enough money to pay back his parents for the six semesters of college he wasted. He doesn't curse on stage but doesn't steer away from any topic. If it's funny, Johnagin will say it.
Johnagin is an autobiographical comedian in a medium-energy act with the gift of finding something funny in everyone he meets and everything he does. At 25, he is a favorite at comedy clubs, corporate events and colleges across the nation. Along with being a top-five finalist on "Last Comic Standing," he has appeared on David Letterman's show, Comedy Central's "Live @ Gotham" and CMT's "ComedyStage."
