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.

Janeane also co-authored the best seller "Feel This Book," with Ben Stiller. Janeane was a cast member of the Emmy Award-winning Ben Stiller Show and played the role of Paula, the acerbic talent booker, on "The Larry Sanders Show," for which she received an Emmy nomination.

Some of Janeane's other television work includes two specials for HBO, FOX's "24," "Mad About You," and the final season of NBC's "The West Wing," where she played Democratic campaign strategist Louise Thornton. In addition to acting in film and television, Janeane is an outspoken activist, spoken word performer and stand-up comedy entertainer known and respected around the world. She was instrumental in the successful launching of the first liberal radio network, Air America Radio, where she hosted her own talk show, "The Majority Report."

Sean Patton
Sean Patton
Hello, my name is Sean Patton. I'm a comedian based in Los Angeles and New York, by way of New Orleans. I began doing stand-up in the Crescent City and have since performed in comedy clubs across the US and Canada. I've also performed at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival (2011), Just for Laughs Chicago (2013), Just for Laughs Toronto (2013), and Just for Laughs Montreal (2008, 2010, 2012). I've performed on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" (2009), "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (2010), and "Conan" (2011, 2013). 2013 also marked the release of my Comedy Central Half Hour. More recently, I've been on "@midnight" (2014, 2015) and will be on the second seasons of "The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail"(2015) and "This Is Not Happening" (2015). As for acting, I've appeared on IFC'S "Maron" and Comedy Central's "Inside Amy Schumer."
Those are the things I've done that I'm proud of. For a list of things I've done that I'm not so proud of... yeah right, you ain't never gonna know that! I love what I do, some of you will too (thanks!), and some of you will not (but thanks for coming).
I want to share myself with you, whomever you are.

Paul Virzi
Paul Virzi
Paul performs all over the country and many of the nation's top comedy clubs have called him one of the strongest up and comers working today. Recently, Paul was a semi-finalist for NY's Funniest Comic Competition for the NY Comedy Festival in NYC. He also opened for Bill Burr at Carnegie Hall where he killed in front of sold out 2800 people which was also part of the NY Comedy Festival. Paul's Stand-Up can be heard on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio daily. He has recently made a TV appearance on Fox's "Redeye" Spike TV and wrote for the 2011 ESPN Espy Awards. He has opened numerous times for some of the best comedians in the business. Comics such as Dave Attell from Comedy Central's "Insomniac"and Bill Burr from Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show" and his one hour special "Let It Go" are just a couple. Paul has also shared the stage with the likes of Tracey Morgan, Bob Saget, Christopher Titus and Louis CK. Paul never fails in keeping the laughs coming and making the audience feel comfortable with his hard hitting personal approach. He is fun to watch and has a great stage presence.
Ian Lara
Ian Lara
Ian Lara is really just a regular guy from Queens, New York. He started comedy right after college because he didn't feel like going to law school and he's loved every second of it. Usually you can catch him performing every night in some of the best and worst shows in New York City, or he's on the road at a club or college near you. Ian Lara might become a household name but really all he wants is to get big enough where he can wear those big hats Pharrell wears to awards shows. Peace!
