J.R. Havlan is a proud father and uncle to a small band of happy and curious Montessori students, and he is returning this year to once again emcee Urban Montessori Charter School’s annual fundraiser. J.R. spent the last 18 years writing for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart where he won 8 Emmy Awards and contributed to the show’s two best selling books, America: The Book and Earth: The Book. J.R. also wrote for the Academy Awards in 2006 and 2008 and has performed stand-up comedy on both The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
W. Kamau Bell is best known for his critically acclaimed, but criminally short-lived FX comedy series, Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell. The New York Times called Kamau “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.” Salon.com listed Kamau on their “Sexiest Men of 2012” list, calling the series “surreptitiously revolutionary in its effortless diversity and humanism.” Kamau has appeared on Comedy Central, Real Time with Bill Maher, Conan, WTF with Marc Maron, Henry Louis Gates Jr’s Many Rivers To Cross, MSNBC, The View, Fresh Air with Terry Gross, and NPR, among others. SF Weekly called Kamau “smart, stylish, and very much in the mold of politically outspoken comedians like Dave Chappelle,” though he was more excited that they called him “handsome.”
Renowned DJ and UMCS dad, DJ Matteo reprises his role as master of the music for Laughs for Learning, providing tunes to socialize, dance, dine, and bid by at the event. Matteo has traveled the world absorbing, collecting and, most importantly, listening to music, internalizing whole genres and beats, turns and tables — always cultivating his selector techniques. He has DJ’d at parties around the globe, for many luminous guests including Sharon Stone, Barry Bonds, Ellen Degeneres, MTV, UPN, QTV and more, as well as spinning at after-parties for Earth, Wind & Fire, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smashmouth, Elton John, Chris Isaak, English Beat, Men at Work, among others.
