Pete Lee
Pete Lee
Pete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment.

In 2005, Pete flew to New York to make his television debut on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend. That same night, he met his future wife, and she made him move to Manhattan. Soon after moving to NYC, he was selected to perform at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he was voted a standout performer. In 2008 Pete made his network television debut performing on NBC’s Last Comic Standing finishing as a semi-finalist. That same year, he made his television acting debut on the CBS Soap Opera As The World Turns, lasting two episodes! At the end of 2008 he then shot his own Comedy Central half Hour Special, which earned him a “cult” following at comedy clubs, and the opportunity to perform over the next four years at 500 colleges across the country.

In 2010 Pete began producing and editing his own shows for the Internet which led to getting his own web show on MSN.com called New York Minute:30. His web shows attracted the attention of television talent scouts and in 2012 he was hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV’s Video on Trial and the NFL Network’s Top 10’s. In 2013, Pete was hired as a cast member on VH1’s Best Week Ever, which debuted in January.

If you haven’t heard of Pete Lee yet, prepare to tell other people.
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.

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.
