James P. Connolly
James P. Connolly is a stand up comedian and radio/TV host known for his playful, confident style and unique sense of humor. He attended Harvard University on a Marine Corps ROTC Scholarship. While serving in Desert Storm, he was ordered to write jokes for a Colonel.

From packing comedy venues across the globe to regular television appearances on shows like “The Tonight Show,” and “Last Comic Standing,” Claude Stuart has come a long way from his down home southern roots. Claude’s explosive, in-your-face, rapid-fire, madman stage style is truly an exhilarating assault on the senses and has evoked comparisons to golden era physical comedians such as Steve Martin, Robin Williams and Jim Carrey. Claude has appeared in numerous feature films and television, including a recent spot starring with Jay Leno on the wildly popular “Undercover Jay” skit segment of “The Tonight Show,” “That 70’s Show,” “Scrubs,” “Comics Unleashed,” “Entertainers,” “The Best Damn Sports Period!,” “Oblivious!,” “Talk Soup” and as a regular on “The Bob and Tom Show.” He frequently performs at the world famous Hollywood Improv and is currently on tour, headlining comedy clubs, colleges and military tours for our troops; nationwide and internationally.
Eccentric and random, Rubin doesn’t just take the stage, he attacks it. He’s big, he’s offbeat and is not easily forgotten. His material is thoroughly original, incredibly detailed and conjures vivid images. His determination to bring something unique to his audience is greatly appreciated by those who crave something different. A talented writer, performer and actor, The Rube (as his fans like to call him) has appeared in numerous feature films including “Dead in 5 Heartbeats,” Boondock saints 2, Off the Boulevard, Rob Schneider’s The Animal (Revolution) and lent his talented voice to the Disney cartoon, brandy and Mr. Whiskers.
