RodMan, the winner of “Last Comic Standing Season 8,” has become an award-winning entertainer. He has performed at Caesar’s Palace, the Gibson Amphitheater, and the Apollo Theater. He is currently the host of his own YouTube shows “Time Out with Rod Man” and “That Good Funny.”

The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project is celebrating 17 years of successfully providing free services to teens in the Santa Clarita Valley. Since their doors opened in 2000, the Youth Project has assisted more than 34,000 local families, including 29,000 youth and 5,500 adults.
