Kevin Fitzgerald is a true renaissance man. Perhaps best known for his ten seasons on the popular Animal Planet TV show Emergency Vets, he has a passion for making people laugh and animals big and small.

In addition to his numerous appearances on Animal Planet, Kevin has opened for such diverse and legendary performers as Bob Hope, Diana Ross, The Temptations, and The Neville Brothers. Despite maintaining a busy practice at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver, Kevin performs to rave reviews at nearly one hundred corporate and fundraising events annually. He believes that laughter is an incredibly important part of everyday life, and that nobody could ever laugh too much.

Stephanie McHugh, opening for Dr. Fitzgerald, is a regular at the prestigious Comedy Works. She was a finalist on season 3 of Nick at Nite’s Funniest Mom contest. She has opened for Kathleen Madigan from the TV show Last Comic Standing, she won a trip to the Las Vegas Comedy Festival as a finalist in the Laugh Across America Contest. She’s a proud mom and said to describe herself as white bread with a little bit of mold, but still a good piece of dough if you cut off the mold!  But that’s a metaphor. Don’t try to really cut her because that would really, really hurt!
