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.

Joe Praino
Joe Praino
Joe Praino is a comedian, actor and podcast host with his sights set on his own late-night talk show. He has two podcasts, Dirty Sports (with Andy Ruther), which showcases his immense depth of sports knowledge, and the Kooks of Komedy (with Lachlan Patterson). He can be seen performing at several clubs in New York City & L.A., including Gotham Comedy Club, The Stand, The Improv and the Westside Comedy Theater.

A native New Yorker, Praino began his stand-up career at the early age of 19 while majoring in Journalism and Communications at Lehigh University, where he was Program Director of the campus radio station. Praino made a name for himself when his ambition and performing talents led him to host his own comedy/music show, "The Joe Show," with guests ranging from the University President to inmates from the Lehigh Valley Correctional facility.

While developing his material on the club circuit, Praino further learned the programming business as an intern at the legendary radio station 102.7 WNEW-FM in New York, as a CBS Page and finally as a Desk Assistant at the Evening News With Dan Rather before stand-up comedy eventually won out as his full-time pursuit. His unique background and smart, funny POV earned him regular spots at the Comic Strip Live and Boston Comedy Club and he hosted his own variety show, Miscellaneous, at Galapagos in Brooklyn. It wasn't long before Praino landed some acting roles in indie films, hosted shows for CSTV, and had appearances on "Gotham Comedy Live" and several episodes of "ESPN Instant," where he was in the company of some of his favorite analysts and commentators.

Praino is a sports enthusiast, with a three-sport varsity background of football, basketball and baseball, who lived a dream when he threw out the first pitch at a Mets game in 2015. Now an avid surfer he regularly waveslides on both the East & West coasts with the occasional excursion to Baja and Costa Rica. He finds great reward in coaching high school baseball and volunteering at camps & clinics. While surfing in New York one day in early 2010, it started to snow and Praino thought "Maybe it's time to try L.A." He made the move and happily lives in Venice with his dog, Vince, who has an unusually small trachea.
Jay Larson
Jay Larson
With the release of his first 1 hour special, “Me Being Me” (2017) Jay Larson has established himself as a mainstay in the comedy world. Jay's style is completely original and his ability to connect to an audience through storytelling is unmatched. His "Wrong Number" story went viral after climbing to #1 on Reddit and was also featured on "This American Life" with Ira Glass claiming, "Perfect Comedy, Perfect Storytelling…" And with appearances on Comedy Centrals’ “The Meltdown, “This is Not Happening”, @Midnight, his own Half Hour special, a handful of Late Night appearances including Conan four times it’s hard to miss him. But if you did you can always pick up one of his albums “Self Diagnosed” (2011), “Human Math” (2016), “Me Being Me” (2017) and you can hear him weekly on his wildly successful podcast, The CrabFeast.

Stand up called Jay to the stage and has brought him to the Big Screen in the Critically acclaimed Karyn Kusama thriller “The Invitation”. The success of the movie led to a role in the highly anticipated and long awaited second season of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” which is currently running on Showtime and parts in the upcoming indie films “Concrete Kids” and “All Square”. While playing out the roles of amazing writers is fun Jay also loves to write his life as he goes and he went everywhere when he hosted Esquire Network’s “Best Bars in America”.

With all of these amazing opportunities the true dream for jay is where all of these things collide in his own scripted show based off his stand up. And while he’s sold two projects to Fox and NBC Universal he is still in search of the project that will allow him to put all of his creative outlets in one place. With the next creative project just around the corner Jay gets the most joy from being with his family and raising his two children.

Jourdain was selected to be a part of the 2015 Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, was a back to back winner of The Ultimate Comic Challenge, a finalist in 2014's Carolina's Funniest Competition and a Regional Showcase Finalist for 2015's Stand Up NBC in New York.
