Sid Davis' experience in psychology keeps his howling audience members wondering if he's the practitioner or the patient. Armed with ADD, a wavering ego and a psychology degree, Sid's exasperating view of our lives takes behavioral therapy to a hilarious new low.
He's shared the stage with comic greats Jimmy Brogan, Evan Sayet, Cowboy Bill Martin, J.J. Ramirez, Basile, Julie Scoggins, Fay Woodroof (The Grandma From Hell), Killer Beaz, John Wesley Austin, Brian Bradley, Jim Wiggins, Brian Cork, Ward Anderson, Janet Williams, Monte Allen, & Jim Holder, Mike Storck to name a few.
Sid is nationally recognized by Toastmasters International; finishing first in the 2005 North Carolina humorous speaking contest. His comedy was featured in the June 2006 issue of the Toastmasters' internationally distributed magazine.
In 2006 he released Space Available, a critically acclaimed comedy novel inspired by his 18 year tenure as an airline worker.
In screenplay form, Space Available rose to the top 250 out of over 8,000 entries in HBO Project Greenlight.
D.S. is one of the hottest up and coming comedians in the country. A very high energy, clever comedian, D.S. will have you on the edge of your seat the entire evening. He uses a number of call backs, but he is best known for his "Rules of Life", which will have everyone saying "Learn the Rules, Read the Handbook!" D.S. has appeared on the last five seasons of BET's Comic View.
Georgia-born country comedian Tim Wilson was a born funnyman, delivering dead-on impressions of his teachers while still in elementary school; he later MC'ed his high school's talent shows, but after taking up guitar as a teen he instead aspired to a career in music.
While in college he accepted a job as a sportswriter, later convincing his editors to allow him to review local concerts as well; at an Atlanta Rhythm Section date, Wilson passed along his demo tape to the group's drummer, Roy Yeager, who agreed to produce a session at his Georgia studio. The resulting demo went nowhere, however, and so Wilson instead turned to comedy; immediately he earned a devoted local following, and soon after won a Cinemax standup competition.
A series of television spots followed, including an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno; in 1990, he also teamed with the duo of Pinkard & Bowden to write the song "Arab, Alabama," and its success convinced him to include music in his standup act.
In addition to a series of LPs for the independent Southern Tracks label, including Tough Crowd, Waking Up the Neighborhood, Low-Class Love Affair, and Tuned Up, Wilson scored a hit single with his "Garth Brooks Ruined My Life," also co-writing Jeff Foxworthy's smash "The Redneck Twelve Days of Christmas." Upon signing to Capitol, he released his major-label debut, It's a Sorry World, in early 1999; Gettin' My Mind Right followed later that same year.
In 2000 he issued Hillbilly Homeboy, which was helped by the success of its first single, "The Ballad of John Rocker," and waited three years to follow it up with his first funk concept album, Super Bad Sounds of the '70s.
Three more traditional albums -- Church League Softball Fistfight (2005), But I Could Be Wrong (2007), and Mr. Wilson Explains America (2009) -- followed.
