ABOUT US​

About Us Oxy Fly in pic (5-2024).jpg
"Oxymorons, Extremely funny and very professional. 100% crowd pleasers!"

Erik Hawkinson, Owner

Loonees Comedy Corner

Oxymorons Comedy is an award-winning, clean and family friendly, Christ following, Stand-Up and (Whose Line is it Anyway) Improv comedy group dedicated to putting the joy of the Lord in people's hearts.

 

We do a lot of charity and fundraising work (almost $10,000 to local charities last year).

 

We don’t do “the church thing“ on stage.  We bless our audiences with laughter, showing them that our God is not just the God of “thou shalt nots“, but THE God of joy, love, laughter, Grace, forgiveness and salvation through His Son Jesus Christ. 

We perform for general audiences and also have our own "Joy of the Lord" performances with some short teaching and ministry for churches, youth groups and other! 

 

Contact us to find out more or tailor our show to YOUR needs OR, book us for your holiday office party, fundraiser, event or private party!

Trip & his Technicolor Dream Shirt logos

After a failed career as an underwater mime, Trip started a brilliant path as a world-renowned model for Men's Bathroom Icons. Starting comedy in 1984 he's worked with Sinbad, Judy Tenuta, Emo, Paula Poundstone, Sam Kinison, and more! Uhalt was an original and founding member of the Union Boulevard Irregulars, the House improv group for Jeff Valdez' Comedy Corner.

Trip gave his heart to Jesus at a Luis Palau Crusade in 1981 and today is bringing clean, Joy of the Lord comedy to audiences anywhere that pays with poultry! (See Trip's OTHER TALENTS)

A gifted athlete, Jedd Hafer was "All-Coast Almost" in junior varsity Tether-ball and an alternate on the US Olyophonic Beatboxing team (Sydney, 2000).

He began his comedy career in 1992, traveling to all but a few of the little, tiny states up in the top-right corner and working with comedians like Sinbad, Mitch Hedberg and Matt Iseman (American Ninja Warrior).


Jedd is committed to spreading love and joy and is fond of saying, “If I can make just one person laugh... I’ll have done better than Pauly Shore.” (See Jedd's OTHER TALENTS)

Paul Cooke

Paul was asked repeatedly to write his bio.  He didn't.  So we've written one for him.  Paul will know better next time...

 

As the "pretty one" of the group Paul excels as a stage performer!  His background includes theater, voice and singing (in the shower), 30 second interpretive slam dancing at stop lights, is a proof reader at an alphabet soup factory and is the Heir Apparent to the kingdom of Barbequeville!

 

Paul is a long-time Believer in Jesus Christ, has a day job in ministry and is a bright spot in the Oxymoron's line up!

Tylor wLogo.jpg

Tylor Gardino

Tylor runs a Martial Arts Dojo and if things get out of hand at a show you can bet there'll be more than just the sound of people breaking out in laughter!  Tylor's background in theater and comedy is more than we can even think about listing here.  Tylor is married to a world class guitarist and also a new mom!  Here favorite things include quite walks in the rain... quiet rides in the countryside on the backs of Clydesdale's... quiet nights by the fire... Pretty much anything that involves "quiet"...

Tyler gave her life and love to Jesus and is a strong Believer with the desire to help others any time the opportunity arises.

Hunter wLogo.jpg

Hunter Willis

Hunter enjoys reading by the light of oncoming traffic.  He is also fond of pressing all the floor buttons in elevators just before stepping out, but not before singing a rousing chorus of "Hope You're Not In a Hurry" to the passengers.

Having been performing comedy and improv since the late 1900's he was instrumental in the startup of a few comedy groups.

Hunter is a wonderful father and follower of Christ.

Samantha wLogo & Name Bar.jpg

Samantha Davis Crocker

When she's not identifying and mapping out an action plan for potholes that need filling Samantha is busy classifying the binomial Phylum, Genus and Species of farmland creature Knock-Knock jokes. She was a member of a Houston based ComedySportz team, has a tremendous background in improv comedy, and enjoys rolling her 'R's every chance she gets!

Samantha gave her life to Jesus in her teens, is married to Casey and has two wonderful children (3 if you count Casey!)

Casey wLogo & Name Bar.jpg

Casey Crocker

You can often find Casey arm wrestling Walmart door greeters. Being the eternal optimist, he says, "Win, lose or draw, I wrestle with the ongoing test of the ages." We don't know what that means, but Casey stands firm by it! He enjoys solitary walks through the mall, secluded strolls along city sidewalks and independent jaunts through the countryside. Casey gets lost a lot.

Casey has a great deal of stage and musical performing experience. He and Samantha were High School sweethearts, and have been married since 2015.

Casey teaches Theology and is himself an ordained Christian Minister. He gave his life to Jesus in college.
