With a background that ranges from being a bouncer with The Rolling Stones and The Who, a 25-year career in veterinary medicine that saw him named “Specialist of the Year in Private Practice” in 2006, & over 20-years of performing as a professional stand-up comedian; Kevin Fitzgerald is a true renaissance man.
Perhaps best known for his 10 seasons on the popular Animal Planet TV show Emergency Vets, Kevin’s passion for making people laugh is surpassed only by his unwavering dedication to all creatures great and small. He believes it is a great privilege to be in a position where he is able to pursue a dual career doing work that he truly enjoys.
Our favorite comedy group, The Grawlix, have been renewed for a 3rd season. We are so proud of Andrew Orvedahl, Adam Cayton-Holland, and Ben Roy. Make sure you catch Those Who Can’t on TruTv Monday, January 14th!

Mitch Fatel’s Comedy Works Naughty and Nice Holiday Show
Mitch Fatel hosts this Holiday Showcase featuring Comedy Works best national headliners. Six comics compete for six charities to win it all! Each comedian will perform two separate routines. The first routine will be their NICE set which is Rated G to PG, Family friendly with no cursing or vulgarity. The second routine will be their NAUGHTY set, rated R to X which is no holds barred, as raunchy and dirty as they choose. At the conclusion of the performances three judges will vote on who pulled off both sets best, that comedian’s charity will win $500.
Neither the audience nor the comedian will know what charity they have actually played for until the conclusion of the show. This is to ensure that each charity present won’t be biased towards their comedian. Before the performances, Mitch will welcome all six charities.
Rules and Judging: Three judges will judge the sets based on FOUR merits: Material, Delivery, Originality, Laughs.
At the conclusion all six comedians will come on stage and Mitch will announce the winner. After the name is announced the comedian will open their envelope and reveal what charity they just won for!
