Howie's House of Comedy Ft. Marc Yaffee

Howie Nave has been a Lake Tahoe fixture up here for over 18 years now and his experience in the comedy biz dates back to 1998 when founder of The Improv, Budd Friedman hired him to run his room first in Reno than up in South Lake Tahoe. Before that Howie was a full-time, road touring comedian best known for his parody songs and regular stints on the nationally syndicated "Dr. Demento” radio show and being on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Nave opened for a wide variety of talent including Neil Young, Trisha Yearwood, Howie Mandell, Louie Anderson, Soupy Sales, Johnny Cash, “Weird Al" Yankovic and Robin Williams to name a few. He's also had the number one morning radio show here in Tahoe (Howie's Morning Rush on KRLT 93-9) since 2003 and was inducted into the Nevada Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2015. His podcast, (Howie's High Sierra Comedy Vault Podcast @ is a popular download and features some of the biggest names in comedy. "Being a member of The Loft family is a real treat and an extension of everything I've done that's come before."

I first saw comedian Marc Yaffee on the Showtime special, Goin’ Native' and even on PBS. Talk about different ends of the programming spectrum! Like the programs and credits he has amassed, this Native-American comedian has accumulated over the years Yaffee is very diverse. To date he's performed his stand up in 43 states and 11 countries. Marc even performed on a flat-bed truck for our U.S. Marines in Iraq while getting his head shaved. Marc even entertained Alaska Airlines passengers at 30,000 feet. More on the ground Yaffee has done the comedy club circuit, casinos and even the World Eskimo Indian Olympics in Alaska. Marc’s also appeared on the FNX Network’s, "First Nations Comedy Experience" and his recent special "Marc My Words" is a mainstay on You can see his latest, "Dry Bar Comedy Special" when it airs this month. As you can imagine Marc has a very unique perspective being Native American and doesn't hold back with the idea of not just making his audience laugh but gives them something to think about too. And to think Marc got the comedy spark from attending a comedy workshop at Laughs Unlimited in Sacramento. Now you can see him at Howie's House of Comedy @ The Loft Tahoe.
