Ari Shaffir
Ari Shaffir
Stand-up comedian and actor Ari Shaffir describes his comedy as a puppet show, but way filthier and without the puppets. He grew up orthodox Jewish, spent 2 years in a yeshiva in Israel, and came back to America to lose his religion and become a comic. Now with two hour standup specials and his own late-night TV series coming up, Ari is a "gifted comic unyielding in his art," becoming "a real force to be reckoned with" (LA Weekly).

Ari's second hour standup special Paid Regular premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. His first hour special, Passive Aggressive, premiered on Chill.com in 2013 and premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. His standup album Revenge for the Holocaust was released in 2012 and went to number 1 on iTunes and amazon.com the week of its premiere. Ari's weekly story-telling series This Is Not Happening premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. The show, which originally debuted as a web series on CC.com, features Shaffir and his comedian friends telling hilarious and true stories in front of a live audience at LA's most distinguished gentlemen's club, Cheetahs. Season 2 of This Is Not Happening will premiere in 2016 and it was recently picked up for a third season on Comedy Central.

In addition to his TV and standup projects, Ari also hosts the wildly popular podcast The Skeptic Tank, a weekly interview show where he chats with everyone from parents to comedians to prostitutes "to help better understand humanity and also to make fart jokes." The podcast is consistently among the top-rated podcasts on iTunes and averages over 100,000 downloads per week.

Ari is a regular panel guest on the popular TV series @midnight and has appeared on Comedy Underground with Dave Attell, both on Comedy Central. He has also been featured on Showtime's The Green Room with Paul Provenza, Comedy Central's Brody Stevens: Enjoy It, and HBO's Down & Dirty with Jim Norton, and he appeared alongside Rob Schneider and Adrian Brody in the film InAPPropriate Comedy. He performs standup to sold out crowds nationwide and has been featured at the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, San Francisco SketchFest, SXSW, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival.

Damien Lemon
Damien Lemon
Damien Lemon's comedy career began from his seat in the back of public school classrooms and continued at his college alma mater, Clark Atlanta University, where he fine tuned his ability to make people laugh until they choke.

On stage, his material comes from everywhere and nowhere, from fornicating politicians driving up sex prices to the "Stop BCC'N!" campaign, and is delivered with a flair that can be best described as an all-inclusive bug-out session.

Damien is a regular cast member on the hit MTV2 shows Guy Code and Guy Court, and makes appearances on Charlemagne and Friends. He was also featured on Hip Hop Squares and Russell Simmons: The Ruckus on Comedy Central.

Abby will be making her television debut on Fuse's Uproarious this fall.
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.
Aaron Berg
Aaron Berg
Aaron now makes his home in New York City where he works most of the top comedy clubs. Aaron just wrapped 13 episodes as Floyd in the groundbreaking new TV series 24 HOUR RENTAL which will be airing on Superchannel in 2013. He has appeared at the Boston Comedy Festival, the New York Comedy Festival, and performed a nationally televised gala set for the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival. His first solo show, The Underbelly Diaries ran off-Broadway at Theatre Row in NYC where it was chosen as "one of three shows you can't afford to miss" in the New York Daily News. The show has been adapted as a feature film and is being produced by Timshel Pictures. Aaron also recently appeared off-Broadway in Jeremy Levy's one act play 21 DAYS and is a subject in the upcoming documentary A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE about 6 Canadian Comedians who travelled to Israel to perform to diverse audiences. He will also be featured in Alan Zweig's new film WHEN JEWS WERE FUNNY. Additional recent Televison guest appearances include KING, Breakout Kings and Murdoch Mysteries. He has also been heard on CBC's The Debaters.
