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.

Nick Di Paolo
Nick Di Paolo
The Winnipeg Press said it best: "Gentle as a starved wolverine and as predictable as a tipsy-hop through a minefield". Nick Di Paolo's honest and acerbic comedy has made him a sought after voice on stage, television and radio for years and earned him two Emmy Nominations for writing.

Di Paolo's career took off after he appeared on "HBO's Young Comedian Special". He has since written and performed four standup specials and four CDs. The most recent standup effort being a one hour Showtime special entitled "Raw Nerve".

He was a regular for the whole two year run of "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and became a staple on the Comedy Central roasts. Other notable television and film credits include "Louie", "Lucky Louie", Artie Lange's "Beer League" a guest starring role on "The Sopranos" and "The Chris Rock Show", where he was a writer for two seasons as well. Writing credits also include the 77th Annual Academy Awards and the MTV Music Video Awards.

For years he has been a favorite guest on radio shows including "The Howard Stern Show", "The Opie and Anthony Show" and "The Dennis Miller Show" to name a few. He also hosted "The Nick Di Paolo Show" in New York City in 2007 and "The Nick and Artie Show" from 2011-2012.

Nick Di Paolo is probably one of the most authentic voices whether on or off stage. He's referred to as a comic's comic because there are no facades, no act. It's all Nick Di Paolo, all the time.
Vladimir Caamano

With the name "Vladimir," few people expect a Dominican from The Bronx to take the stage. His comedic style is the fruit of an immigrant Dominican family living in the cultural mecca that is New York City and is described as an elegant combination of urban grit and intellect. He began polishing his wit in the concrete jungles of The Bronx and Washington Heights and after graduating from Wesleyan University launched into Standup Comedy.

He is an NBC Standup for Diversity Finalist and has been featured on "Gotham Comedy Live" on AXS.TV, Standup 360, ComedyTime and NUVO TV's "Standup and Deliver". Vladimir tours nationally and is a regular in the New York scene performing at the Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, HA Comedy Club and the Comic Strip Live. He is also a Diversity Scholarship Winner at The People's Improv Theater where he is also taking writing courses. Whether discussing his grandfather who fathered 43 kids, traveling to college without luggage, or mimicking his parents struggle to pronounce his name, you will enjoy watching this comedian weave a hilarious fabric of truth and absurdity.
