2nd Annual Pickin’ & Grinnin’ at the Pantry

ARTIST BIOS

Bone Hampton – the term “crossover” is seldom used of comedians, yet the word is the perfect descriptor for “Bone” Hampton, one of redemptive comedy’s most well traveled and in-demand funnymen. Bone’s comedic smarts know no bounds. One day he can be seen hosting and performing at 10,000 seat music festival, the next working the crowd at a comedy club or he’s doing his thing at a church gig, and the following he’s making a splash on a hit sitcom.

Such is evidenced in his diverse resume, including “All About Steve” with Sandra Bullock & Bradley Cooper, NBC’s My Name is Earl, ABC’s Less Than Perfect, and reoccurring appearances on ABC’s Daytime talk show The View, on TBN’s “Praise the Lord,” Lecrae’s “Higher Learning Tour” and on the Thou Shalt Laugh 2 and 5 projects with Tim Conway and Chonda Pierce.

Bone is the 2005 Urban Gospel Alliance’s Male Comedian of the year and the Recipient of the 2013 GMA Dove Award Grady Nutt Humor Award for Comedian of the Year. Hampton can also be heard in Nashville weekday mornings co-hosting on “Mighty Good Day” with Stellar Award winner Lady Shaunte’ on 760AM on The Gospel, and is part of the comedy tour “The Heavy Hitters” with Chinitta Morris, Akintunde, and Marcus Wiley.

 

Mark Schultz is from Colby Kansas. Moving to Nashville not long after graduating from Kansas State University, Mark found his way to the youth staff at First Presbyterian Church where he began writing songs for the youth and their families. A concert at the Ryman Auditorium in 2000 led to a career in which Mark has sold over 1.3 million albums and had 10 No. 1 singles in Contemporary Christian Charts. Mark has landed the top spot on Billboard magazine’s Christian Adult Contemporary Songwriter list and has been featured on “48 Hours”, “CNN”, and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” He has been nominated for numerous Dove Awards, winning his first at the 2006 Dove Awards when the CD/DVD Mark Schultz Live: A Night of Stories & Songs was named Long Form Music Video of the Year. In 2011, Mark and Kate started the Remember Me Mission, which is a non-profit dedicated to helping orphans all over the world. Proceeds from Schultz’s music and other creative projects go toward healthcare and education for orphans at home and abroad. Mark is married to Kate. They have two children, Ryan and Gus. Mark has volunteered at PTM as a lunch mate mentor.
