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.
Thu 1/24/19 7:30PM Mary Stuart Rogers Theater


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. ADULT CONTENT.
Fri 1/25/19 8:00PM Foster Family Theater


WHOSE LIVE ANYWAY?
GCA FY19
WHOSE LIVE ANYWAY?
They're back! "Whose Live Anyway" is 90 minutes of hilarious, clean, improvised comedy and song, all based on audience suggestions. Ryan Stiles of television's “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and improv masters Greg Proops, Jeff Davis and Joel Murray leave their audiences gasping with the very witty scenes they invent before your eyes. Everyone is amazed at how quickly they make it up and crowds of all ages are astounded by the incredible improvised song lyrics the guys perform. If you're lucky, you might even get called up on stage to be part of the show!
Thu 2/14/19 8:00PM Mary Stuart Rogers Theater

CHAD PRATHER
GCA FY19
CHAD PRATHER

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson calls him “supernaturally articulate,” and CNN has labeled him the “Pick-up Pundit.” Chad Prather is hilarious, as a Gallo Center audience learned when he brought his “Star Bangled Banter Comedy Tour” to town in January 2018. So we're bringing Chad back by popular demand! Known for his way with words, comedic family stories told from an adult perspective, and rapid fire rants from the front seat of his truck, the comedian, armchair philosopher and musician may remind you of a fast-talking combination of Lewis Grizzard and Jeff Foxworthy. His social media viral video views are counted in the hundreds of millions. Recommended for audience members 18 years and older.

Sat 4/6/19 8:00PM Mary Stuart Rogers Theater

With comedy as the vehicle, and purpose the destination, you will laugh in such a way that will inspire you to look inside and ask, "What am I called to deliver?"

What The Pump and Dump Show’s #BandOfMothers are saying on social:

“The Pump and Dump Show is basically the best thing you can do for yourself as a mom. It’s therapy and wine and laughs and a lifeline all rolled into one.” 

“Saw your show last night and I have to say it changed my life. You moms are amazing and the deeper message your share is bigger than amazing. Thank you so much!”

“A much needed night out with my girls and a much needed reminder that solidarity is key to surviving motherhood. You are hilarious!”

“A mom from the audience got up and said it’s been a year and a half since she had a night out. That’s when I fell in love with The Pump and Dump girls who gave that mom a reason to get out and laugh her face off because we all need that. I loved that they were using humor to bring so many women together… They are legit.”
