After growing up as the youngest of 5 kids in an Irish-American household, Sam struggled to have any voice at all in his own family. Now after years of toiling away in the rotting basement of the entertainment business, Norton performs to sold-out audiences in clubs & theaters across the nation. Norton has been seen on FOX’s “Laughs”, JBTV’s “Four Star Stand Up” & Comcast’s “Trial By Laughter”.
Every time Norton performs he manifests his bubbling anger into a relentless package of humility, debauchery & heartwarming honesty which RE: Comedy Magazine called “… deviant comedy”. With his cantankerous optimism, Sam showcases the everyday dilemmas a white trash kid from Kansas has while growing up and trying to navigate the real world scenarios of racism, sexism and homophobia, much to the delight of his fans. And if all those words don’t impress you, then reading this was a waste of both of our time.
Originally from Boston, Rick has been a recurring sketch performer on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno whose keen observational humor, quick wit & and improv skills lead him to the finals in the prestigious San Francisco Comedy Competition.
Rick has appeared on other TV shows such as Comedy Central’s Stand-up Stand-up, Comedians Unleashed, Grand Slam Comedy Jam, National Lampoon’s Funny Money and Starz/Encore’s West Coast Comedy. He has headlined clubs and corporate events all across the country as well as entertained our troops in Japan, Korea, Italy, Bahrain, and Germany.
On the side, Rick performs in a comedy duo called Hits & Giggles with fellow stand-up Adam Stone. Their show combines stand-up comedy, inane banter, and music that draws upon material from the 1960’s right up to present day. Picture a contemporary cross between The Smothers Brothers and Cheech & Chong (without the bong water).
Rick has produced, sold & briefly appeared in three stand-up specials for the Showtime Network: Going Native (9/09), Green Collar Comedy Slam (4/10) and The Godfathers of Comedy (1/11). In 2006 this “wicked die-hahd” Red Sox aficionado had his first book published: How to Talk to a Yankee Fan… a tongue-in-cheek look at the rivalry between the Yankees and the rest of America. His 2nd book, Bathroom Bits, a collection of the “world’s greatest jokes” is currently available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and his website www.rickdelia.com.
Today, in addition to stand-up, Rick is the director, writer, and co-host of the Half Hour Happy Hour – a late night comedy show on the CW Network in northern NV & CA.
