Adam Richmond: Adam Richmond was one of the youngest touring headliners to come out of Canada in the year 2002.

He produces one of the most popular monthly shows called RHOC - ‘Richmond’s House Of Comedy’ once a month at the Hollywood Improv. While also doing regular audience warm-up work for ‘The Best Damn Sports Show Period’ and the TV Guide channel, Adam has also gone global! Not only did he complete a tremendously successful USO tour for the American troops in Japan/Korea/Guam, he’s added Australia to the list and has recently performed at Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

With his fun persona, Richmond has the ability to make an audience feel comfortable in his presence, and has definitely become a candidate as one of the new comedy faces the world will see for many years to come. Go see Richmond and witness how much you can get away with when an audience likes you.
Peter Banachowski: Raised in the small town of Oxford MI, Peter started stand up in Detroit at age 17 while working many jobs and earning a degree in mathematics.
Now at 24, he lives in Los Angeles where he performs stand up every single night of the week, and regularly hosts 2-4 shows a week at the Hollywood Improv.
Banachowski's style of comedy is very conversational and stream of thought. His sets are filled with honesty and vulnerability making every moment seem like an inside joke between himself and the audience. Banachowski paints a picture for his audience using voices, characters, and telling deeply personal, true stories while providing unique and smart social commentary.
He thanks you in third person for reading this and hopes to see you soon.
