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.

Matthew Broussard
Matthew Broussard
Born in New Jersey, raised in Atlanta, and, in 2012, winner of Houston's Funniest Person, Matthew Broussard isn't sure where he's from. Before doing stand up, he earned a degree in Applied Math from Rice University and got fired from being a financial analyst. His comedy relies on his killer timing, subtle wit, and devilish good looks. Also, he's not very witty and his timing could use some work. When he's not drawing puns for his webcomic, mondaypunday.com, he enjoys swimming, using semicolons pretentiously, and resembling a villain from an 80s movie.

Despite earning a coveted spot on Comedy Central's Adam DeVine's House Party after only doing stand-up for 18 months, and booking a principle role in the comedy film Intramural, the first feature film he's ever auditioned for - his Cajun father and Jewish mother still hope he gets an MBA. TV Credits include: Adam Devine's House Party, Last Call With Carson Daly, The League, and The Mindy Project, and MTV's Sex Tips For Girls. Matthew can currently be seen in MTV2's Guy Code and will soon be seen on MTV2's Not Necessarily News.

After living in New York for six years Dan has been featured on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, Conan, and appeared on Opie and Anthony. This year, you can see him on Comedy Central's The Half Hour and also see his commentary as a new cast member of MTV2's Guy Code.
