Rich Vos
Rich Vos
Best known from NBC's hit reality show "Last Comic Standing," Rich Vos is one of the most exciting and broadest headlining comedians in the country. Back Stage Magazine says of Vos, "He has an uncanny 'Everyman' ability to likeably bond with anyone in the audience…" The excitement of a Rich Vos show stems from his unique, no-holds-barred perspective on relationships, divorce and parenthood. Vos pulls no punches when it comes to comedy. On many occasions, he will deliver some of the quickest crowd banter, leaving audiences not knowing what to expect next.

Vos is a "comic's comic" who is quick, off-the-cuff and appeals to all types of audiences, best represented by his extensive resume of television and radio appearances. He has two Comedy Central Half-Hour Specials and appeared in two other Comedy Central specials. He was a regular guest on "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn," and has been a regular guest on "The Opie and Anthony Show" for the past 10 years. Vos has appeared on HBO, Showtime, Starz, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," NBC's "American Dreams" and "The View." He is also a regular on the Joy Behar show, made three appearances at the Apollo, four appearances on BET, and was the first white comic to perform on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam." He also wrote for the 2005 Oscars, and has appeared on and wrote for many roasts.

Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Vos struggled to beat drug and alcohol addictions. He now celebrates his victories on stage with stories about kids, divorce, marriage and recovery. Besides being a proud parent of three beautiful girls, he just celebrated 25 years, clean and sober.

His strength as a live performer comes from years of headlining clubs across the country and performing shows for colleges, corporations and charities. He is inundated with letters of thanks and gratitude for the good work he has done. When he is not on the road, he can be seen regularly at Caroline's and The Comedy Cellar as well as other clubs all over New York City, which he calls home.

Monroe Martin
Monroe Martin
Monroe Martin is a colorful and imaginative comedian with a lifetime of hard knock experiences that have been spun into side-splitting jokes and stories.

Monroe was born and raised in Philadelphia, one usually wouldn’t find Monroe’s life story laughable. After all, how inappropriate is it to laugh at a foster child who jumped around from one dysfunctional family to another? Sit in the audience of one of Monroe’s performances and you’ll find yourself laughing at his adversity. Monroe’s honest and open approach to joke and storytelling universalizes his experiences.

Monroe’s creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit. His intelligent and hysterical perspective resonates and has earned him respect among his peers.

Monroe is on his way to becoming the type of comedian he admires—one who says exactly what he wants, the way he wants to say it. He idolizes these types of comedians because he realizes that it takes guts to say how you truly feel whether it be right or wrong. It is especially hard to discuss the topics that are considered taboo and/or controversial. By saying what he wants, how he wants, Monroe is creating his legacy of being one of the funniest comedians in America.

Monroe says “All good comedians speak of life experience through their own unique perspectives.” Based on his experience, He has the makings of a great comedian, and is well on his way.

Derek Gaines
Derek Gaines
The man with the smile of a thousand angels, Derek Gaines, a California born New Jersey resident, raised a new face in the wonderful art of comedy. July 29th 1984 was the day that the Lindenwold's only campaign began. Derek started in the vicious comedy clubs of Philadelphia and than began to move around the tri-state area (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York) working and still working on what he would like to call the "Left field crusader show", the style of comedy that speaks to all but touches the very hearts of the Black, "can't-be-a-thug suburbanite only children" of the US. Derek trusts and believes God for this gift he has been given and just wants to bring it back for the people. "Progress and not peril" is his motto and he plans to take that with him through every stage of his career.
Tammy Pescatelli
Tammy Pescatelli
“When I was pregnant, my agent said, “Your career is over! I have never seen a pregnant woman on stage.” I said, ‘Apparently you have never been to a really bad strip club!’”. “I’m not going to tell you my mother-in-law is difficult BUT the Pope would stab her with his hat!” Comedian Tammy Pescatelli is the kind of woman you wish was your sister or your best friend. Like a good sister, she‘s always ready with a good joke or lively quip. Tammy learned her funny skills growing up in a large Italian household outside of Cleveland. On her album, IT IS WHAT IT IS, she uses every bit of her experience to make us laugh about family, religion, and even politics (her sister thinks Al Qaeda is a guy from the neighborhood.)

But like a best friend, she also gives us great advice on everything from drinking tips to keeping us grounded (“Just because a man wants to sleep with you doesn‘t mean you‘re sexy. I have brothers that will hump a couch.“) When people ask her – “Where do you get your material?“ Tammy famously replies, “I wake up!“

Tammy‘s recent reality series, A Stand Up Mother (which she co-created, executive produced, wrote and starred in) on WEtv, documented her life as she balanced her family and her growing career with a lot of laughs. Being one of the Final Five on NBC‘s “Last Comic Standing 2“ catapulted Tammy‘s career and won her a slew of new fans, solidifying her as one of the sharpest women in the comedy world. She just won “Comedy Central‘s 2010 Stand-Up Showdown”, and has appeared twice as a guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”. She has also recently appeared on BRAVO TV’s “Rocco’s Dinner Party”, CBS’s “The Talk”, Nickeloden’s “NICK Mom’s Night Out”, NBC‘s “Last Comic Standing: The Best of the Best”,and Comedy Central‘s “The World Stands Up!”. Tammy also recently appeared in her own half-hour special for Comedy Central, “Comedy Central Presents: Tammy Pescatelli.“ She has made numerous appearance on the CBC’s hit show,”The Debater’s”, as well as the “Jerry Lewis Telethon“. She has performed on “The Bonnie Hunt Show”, “TBS‘s Evening at the Laugh Factory“, “Last Call with Carson Daly”, and has been a guest a number of times on the syndicated show “Comics Unleashed”, and was chosen for their “Best of the Best“ world wide top selling DVD!

She was also featured weekly as part of the “Fashion Police“ panel for US Weekly. And giving pros a run for their money in the poker department, Tammy participated in the GSN poker series “Poker Royale: Comedians vs. Pros”, making it all the way to the finals. A regular on USO Comedy tours, Tammy has entertained our troops all over the world.

She co-stars in the upcoming indie films “Everybody Wants to Be Italian”, “Single“, and “Made in Brooklyn.”

Tammy currently tours the country promoting her latest comedy album, “Finding the Funny”.
