The comedy explosion of the 80’s led
Elaine from The Ice House Office Manager to booking agent.
The comedy club scene expanded to over 200 comedy clubs
across the country. The reputation of The Ice House spread
to Independent club owners who opened clubs from Hawaii
to Indianapolis, and The Independent Booking Network was
created. The quality of the shows at The Ice House and the
clubs of the Network inspired millions to attend “live”
comedy shows during comedy’s finest decade. The original
roster of 400 entertainers has increased to the over 4,000
Elaine Tallas-Cardone currently books all the
comedians for I.B.N. (The Independent Booking Network) which
consists of several comedy clubs across the country. Elaine’s
input is always in demand by the talent coordinators of
The Tonight Show, Casting Agencies and Producers of Comedy
Festivals for Montreal, Aspen and Las Vegas, but her prime
focus is providing clean comedians to Event Planners and
organizers of corporate events. With this vast experience,
