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.

Casey James Salengo is an NYC based comedian from the mountains of Vermont. He's performed in the Riptide Comedy Festival and the Brooklyn Comedy Festival. He's usually very polite.
Joe List began his comedy career in Boston, Massachusetts in 2000 just weeks after graduating from high school. Since that time List has been featured on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, FoxNews Red Eye, The Artie Lange Show, as well as AXSTV's Gotham Comedy Live. List has also twice been featured at the prestigious Just For Laughs festival in Montreal as well as the Vancouver Comedy Festival and Oslo Comedy Festival. His album So Far No Good can be heard regularly on Sirius Radio. List is also the co-host of his own popular weekly podcast Tuesdays with Stories as well as being a regular on Robert Kelly's You Know What Dude podcast. In June of 2014, List made his network television debut on the Late Show with David Letterman and was seen on Comedy Central's Half Hour in 2015.
I'm a 20year old Stand Up Comedian/ Actor/ Writer from a small town in Ohio who's marching band can probably form a Comma, now living in LA. Travel all over the country touring with great comedians like D.L. Hughley, Tommy Davidson, Ralphie May, Dane Cook, Jokoy, and Erik Griffin, just to name a few. You may have seen me on MTVs Wild N Out or Disney XD 🙂 All i want from you guys is some love and support to help me fulfill my dreams.
In the past, Ali Kolbert was as an NBC Page--where she worked on shows such as Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Recently, Ali made her television debut in that very building, on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Ali has worked as a contributing writer at The Onion and her clever and provocative stand-up won her the title of Stage 72's "Greatest New Comedian." She recently performed in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta.
Ali's writing credits include Above Average. Ali performs stand-up comedy nightly in NYC bars and clubs. She even once impersonated Reese Witherspoon on The Howard Stern Show.
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.
