Ian Lara is really just a regular guy from Queens, New York. He started comedy right after college because he didn't feel like going to law school and he's loved every second of it. Usually you can catch him performing every night in some of the best and worst shows in New York City, or he's on the road at a club or college near you. Ian Lara might become a household name but really all he wants is to get big enough where he can wear those big hats Pharrell wears to awards shows. Peace!

You may have seen me on MTVs Wild N Out or Disney XD 🙂 All i want from you guys is some love and support to help me fulfill my dreams.
lex Pavone’s unique brand of comedy is part rambling insane man, part storyteller, part daredevil. You really never know what’s coming next. One of the more personable comedians, Alex sees the stage as a launching point, instead of a home during his act. Known for walking out into the audience, from tabletop to tabletop, and liberating a few shots along the way, Alex Pavone’s brand of storytelling is one not easily forgotten.
Alex has opened for Bobby Lee, served as a panelist on Video on Trial and MTV’s Cocktales. Making his comedy debut in 2007, Alex Pavone has yet to make it big, but he’s certainly well on his way. To see one of his upcoming performances, check out Best Comedy Tickets’ NYC Comedy Club Schedule where you’ll find uptodate listings. Just be sure to reserve your tickets ahead of time as he has developed a cult following that loves to pack the clubs he performs at all comedy shows in NYC. Alex Pavone is a regular performer at The Stand NYC.

After graduating, Robert worked as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Mayor James E. Mayo. Upon moving to the State Capital, Robert became a Special Assistant under Governor Bobby Jindal. Even as a rising star on the Louisiana political scene, Robert's desire to become a stand-up comedian put him at a crossroads, and his superiors in the Governor's office gave him an ultimatum – either comedy or politics. Thankfully, Robert chose comedy.
After a few years of paying his dues (which included sleeping in his car and $11 a night motels), Robert was named Louisiana's Comedian of The Year three years in a row. In 2012, Robert joined the Shaquille O'Neal All-Star Comedy Jam Tour in addition to opening for comedy stars such as Kevin Hart, Mike Epps, DL Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, and Ron White, as well as musicians such as Ludacris, Anthony Hamilton, and Lil' Wayne.
