Brian Moote: 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.
Jackie Monahan: Jackie is taking the NYC comedy scene by storm. Quickly becoming a local favorite at Gotham and Caroline's on Broadway, Jackie took her show on the road headlining at Clubs and Colleges all over the country. When she is not on the road with the LOL tour, she is busy around Manhattan doing spots on Maxim's Sirius radio and VH1 shows. With this trained actress and Uprights Citizen Brigade improviser it seems that Miss Monahan is unstoppable.
