ALI WONG is a stand-up comedian living in Los Angeles, CA. After SF Weekly selected her as “The Best Comedian of 2009″ and the SF Bay Guardian awarded her “Best of the Bay,” she decided that it was finally time to depart her hometown. In 2010, Comedy Central listed Ali Wong as one of 7 “Comic’s to Watch.” In 2011, Variety Magazine named her as one of the “10 Comics to Watch” , and Ali appeared in the 2011 and 2012 Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, QC. Since then, Ali has performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, the new season of “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show”, Dave Attell’s “Comedy Underground”, “Late Night with Seth Meyers”, appeared in Oliver Stone’s “Savages”, hosted the Golden Globes live coverage on E! and starred as “Link Lark” in the ABC drama “Black Box” with Vanessa Redgrave and Kelly Reilly. You can catch her on Chris Hardwick’s late-night game show @Midnight, the new season of Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy.” She is also a writer on ABC’s new comedy “Fresh Off the Boat.”
After moving to San Francisco, Kevin started a career in the Internet industry which lasted a whole year. In 2002 he was layed off and was convinced by a friend to go to an open mic. Influenced by Eddie Murphy's "RAW", Kevin decided to go to the open mic dressed in a purple leather jump suit......not a good idea. His first set was not very good.
Not trying to become the typical Asian comic Kevin strayed away from Korean accents based on their mothers'.....plus his mom is a honkey. He concetrated on developing his own style which has said to be very laid back and fresh. With his unique style and jokes, he caught the eyes of hollywood and was invited to the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival.
Kevin has numerous television appearances which include Comedy Central's Premium Blend and Jimmy Kimmel Live. He is currently living in Los Angeles.
In 2004 Brian Moote's mother said to him in her usual Irish sarcasm, "Well, if you think you are so funny, why don't you become a comedian then mister?" Shortly thereafter, mostly out of spite, Brian first stepped on stage and thoroughly entertained 3 people at an 11pm open-mic show. To his surprise, his stubbornness had just opened the door to his dream job and he worked as a professional comedian throughout his college studies. Since that night, he has worked at comedy clubs and colleges across the country. He has an energetic and conversational style that promises no two sets are exactly the same, and his goal when he performs is to facilitate good time for everyone in the room, or seriously injure himself trying. The latter of which has yet to happen to him, and a bit dramatic. He was a part of Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight and the Maxim/Bud Light Real Men of Comedy Tour featuring Joe Rogan. He is "just a barrel of fun" says his mother, who to this day takes credit for launching him into the world of show business. He recently recorded a 50 min album entitled “Paying for Graduate School” at Wiseguys Comedy Club in Salt Lake City, UT.
New York bred and Los Angeles based John Campanelli is one of the nation’s hottest up and coming comedians. His debut comedy album “Nervous”, recorded at NYC’s The Stand Comedy Club, was highly regarded and lead LAFT Magazine to review John as, “A comedian for the people.”

In addition, the comedian headlines “Live with John Campanelli” twice a month at The Comedy Store in Hollywood and has made notable appearances on TVGuide Network, Playboy Radio, BiteSizeTV and Reelz Channel.
But if you can’t hop on a private jet to Hollywood, have no fear because John plays clubs all over the country, frequenting NYC, and is sure to be found at comedy club near you.
Darrell La Montre is a Los Angeles native who began performing comedy in his hometown. He won a local stand-up comedy contest only four months into his comedy career. His original brand of humor is best characterized as sardonic, edgy, and thought provoking. No one is exempt from being the recipient of his venom (not even himself). Darrell's ability to recognize patterns among human behavior and deliver his observations in a clever and hilarious manner is exceptional. In addition, he expresses his personal, often relatable experiences in an equally funny and intelligent fashion. Darrell doesn't typically interact much with the audience, preferring instead to launch into one scathing, hilarious bit after another attacking such diverse subjects as: the homeless, obese people, slow supermarket checkers, aspiring L.A. actors and Mexican valet parkers.
Darrell is a regular at the world famous Laugh Factory and has been featured on radio and internet podcasts. Currently, he is the co-host ofthe Knuckles and Chuckles Podcast along with fellow comedian Bryan Dey. Prior to that, he was the co-host of The Bret Ernst Show. You can catch Darrell killing crowds at all the major clubs in the southern California area and in other states across the country. He is a rising comic to be taken very seriously.
