Sherrod Small

Keith Robinson
Keith Robinson
Keith Robinson is the quintessential comedian’s comedian, admired by his fellow artists – his great art of inherently subverting his audience, shaking them out of their cozy assumptions to fresh perspectives sustains his comedic prominence. His commanding stage presence has gained him appearances on MTV, VH1, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, TBS’s family comedy series Are We There Yet, The Chelsea Lately Show on E! and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Many talented comedians can make you laugh but it’s difficult to find a comedian who rises to a level of middle brow brilliance finding comic expression in cultural/racial disparities, his mischievous past, and political absurdities, which leads to a further probing deep beneath Keith Robinson’s hardened pseudo-street exterior to expose his geeky indisputable-intellectual interior. It is within the comedic improvisation of standup where his strident honesty and confrontational style expose the conspicuously concealed obvious – spilling to observations that masterfully make him a skillful teller-of-tales.

In his teens, Keith began cultivating his wit with his "back of the bus funny," subsequently working the comedy circuit in his hometown Philadelphia and securing a spot as one of the finalists on Ed McMahon’s Star Search. He did not take home the $100,000 prize, but his career as a comic and actor mushroomed. He now merits a coveted comedic and acting career on the stage, screen, and television. Keith’s impressive record of accomplishments include his self-titled special on Comedy Central, a standout regular on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, writer and central performer on The Wanda Sykes Show and writer for the Chappelle Show. He was recently seen in Kevin Hart's record-breaking movie, "Laugh at My Pain."

One of New York Comedy Cellar’s elite, where he frequently hosts, Keith Robinson has a reputation, best described by Cringe Humor for "being the best at impromptu zingers and one-liners that annihilate his colleagues." His first hour special, recorded live in New York at The Gramercy Theater: Kevin Hart presents Keith Robinson in Back of the Bus Funny, is now released on iTunes, Hulu, Amazon, and Google Play.
Greer Barnes
Greer Barnes
Greer Barnes was born in the Bronx, New York City. Raised by his mother and Jewish stepfather, Greer received his Bar Mitzvah at age thirteen. Athletics led Greer to baseball, in which he excelled. Having been scouted by the San Francisco Giants, he seemed to be on his way until he suffered a career-ending injury at age 18. Following his second dream of stand-up comedy, Greer was quickly noticed and began headlining at clubs and colleges across the country.
Greer has done commercial work for both the NBA and the NFL. His television credits include "In Living Color," "Last Call with Carson Daly," Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "Chappelle's Show." Greer was able to combine his love for baseball and acting when he appeared with Kevin Costner in the film "For the Love of the Game." His first "Comedy Central Presents" half-hour special premiered in 2009.
Adrienne Iapalucci
Adrienne Iapalucci
Born and bred in the Bronx, Adrienne Iapalucci's skewed look on life is reflected in her unique brand of intelligent comedy. Her dark sense of humor is enhanced by her political incorrectness and counteracted by her love of dogs. Comedy fans might recognize Adrienne from her performances as a semifinalist on season 7 of NBC's Last Comic Standing and her recent appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

In 2009, Adrienne won the first ever People's Choice award at the New York Comedy Festival. She was also a semifinalist in the festival's New York Funniest Stand-Up Contest and a runner-up in the New York Underground Comdy Festival's Best of the Boroughs contest.

Adrienne has been featured in the Daily News, New York Times, Reader's Digest, and TimeOut NY magazine. In 2010 Adrienne made her international debut as part of Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival, where she took part in "New Faces."

Whether hosting HOT 97 Morning Show for over 7 years, DJing and doing stand-up around the world, or producing & hosting his own comedy shows Cipha Sounds radiates personality, driving every project. His "No Small Talk" TIDAL streaming stand up series filmed at The Comedy Cellar or his improv show "Take It Personal" at UCB theatre are just a few of the current shows taking over the city. Just as comfortable on stage as he is behind the turntables, Cipha has carved out a distinct voice in music and comedy over the past 15 years.

Cipha's ear for talent made him a natural A&R executive, a position he has held with labels ranging from Rawkus, Tommy Boy , Neptunes' Star Trak imprint with Pharrell Williams, and Roc-A-Fella with Jay-Z. Cipha learned how to break new records, helping turn once-unknowns like Sean Paul, 50 Cent, Pitbull, Rick Ross, Rihanna into superstars, while maintaining a healthy sense of humor on the mic. In 2003, he took an even bigger leap into the music industry and began hosting "Sucker Free" and "TRL" on MTV. In the past few months Cipha has become the first comedian to sign to ROCNATION management and has teamed up with Alicia Keys to develop a Television Series.
