ANTHONY K
GCA FY19
ANTHONY K
Modesto-area favorite Anthony K is a comic whose star is on the rise. Raised without a father and something of a know-it-all in school, he credits comedians like Roseanne Barr, Patrice O'Neal and Jim Norton for helping to raise him and plant the comedic seed into his DNA. Once he found a local open mike, it wasn't long before Anthony K found his own voice in stand-up comedy—a voice that is equal parts wry, sarcastic, improvisational, original, and hilarious.

ANITA RENFROE
GCA FY19
ANITA RENFROE
It’s been a wild decade going from “stay-at-home-mom” to “YouTube comedic Phe-mom-enon,” but Anita Renfroe doesn’t mind. With her unique brand of estrogen-flavored musical comedy and blend of sass, edge and slightly offbeat takes on All Things Female, audiences at her comedy concert tours, viewers of Good Morning America appearances and the YouTube masses who enjoyed her William Tell version of everything a Mom says, would say that Anita just tells it like it is. Some would say she just says what everyone else is thinking, but won’t say out loud. Gallo Center audiences love her.

MARCELLA ARGUELLO
GCA FY19
MARCELLA ARGUELLO
Too lazy to shoot hoops and too tall to model, Modesto native and Johansen High grad Marcella Arguello stands over 6 feet. Although she may be taller than most men, the only thing more intimidating than her height is her comedy. Marcella mixes a combination of genuine reason with a sexy suggestion of street. She appeals to everyone and is not afraid to tell you how she really feels about subjects concerning race, gender, politic, relationships, family, work, music, pop culture and whatever else is on her mind that day.
