Joe Sib, founder and co-conspirator of SideOneDummy Records for over twenty years has quickly climbed up the ranks of the comedy scene. In 2011 his nationally acclaimed, “California Calling: Growing up Punk,” solidified his success as comedic storyteller. In a twist of irony, his tales of youthful rebellion and irritating his own parents now serve his audience a blend of karmic stand up comedy as he attempts to navigate his own role as a father of two. In 2014, Joe launched the monthly SideOneDummy Storytellers show in Hollywood. He has performed at the SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, FYF Fest, the Laugh Factory and Improv Comedy clubs. When he’s not lamenting his lost youth or fatherhood, Joe hosts the Complete Control radio show on 98.7FM in Los Angeles and nationally select cities.
A graduate of the San Diego State University Dramatic Arts Department and with training from the American Conservatory Theatre and The Groundlings, Ms. Soltanovich is extensively trained in every aspect of writing as well. "I loved living in the dorms at college because my father never let me have slumber parties as a kid. He said sleeping on the floor and eating from cardboard boxes was the reason we left Russia."
Recently, Kira optioned a 1/2-hour hybrid comedy with New Line Television starring Scott Baio. Based on her writing and acting, she was selected to be a part of the ABC Comedy Development Showcase where she was named "Hottest new writer". She has shot several pilots this year, including a Pilot Presentation for Comedy Central. You might also hear Kira as the voice of "Carla", a teenage know-it-all, on the animated series, Iggy Cool.
Kira has been a winner, finalist and semi-finalist in a myriad of comedy competitions and festivals, including Comedy Central's Laugh Riots, California’s Funniest Female, Seattle International Comedy Festival, and the Boston Comedy Festival.
Long Beach, CA native and stand-up comic Jason Collings toured the country and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in comedy early on in his career. Opening for some of the greats turned him into a headliner and respectively, he is now headlining the country on his own bringing his observational and highly conversational trademark comedy to the masses. Proving to be a powerhouse in the field of entertainment, Collings owned the late night stage on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and has showcased his comedic prowess on BET’s Comic View and on VH-1. He is also a frequent staple at The Comedy Store in Hollywood, the Improv comedy clubs, Laugh Factory, The Ice House in Pasadena, and at The Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.
What started as a mere hobby has turned into what is sure to be a life-long career for Jason Collings and if you have the chance to see him live, you are sure to become a fan of his brand of comedy that has crowds roaring with laughter from coast to coast.
