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.
Ari Shaffir
Ari Shaffir
Stand-up comedian and actor Ari Shaffir describes his comedy as a puppet show, but way filthier and without the puppets. He grew up orthodox Jewish, spent 2 years in a yeshiva in Israel, and came back to America to lose his religion and become a comic. Now with two hour standup specials and his own late-night TV series coming up, Ari is a "gifted comic unyielding in his art," becoming "a real force to be reckoned with" (LA Weekly).

Ari's second hour standup special Paid Regular premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. His first hour special, Passive Aggressive, premiered on Chill.com in 2013 and premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. His standup album Revenge for the Holocaust was released in 2012 and went to number 1 on iTunes and amazon.com the week of its premiere. Ari's weekly story-telling series This Is Not Happening premiered on Comedy Central in 2015. The show, which originally debuted as a web series on CC.com, features Shaffir and his comedian friends telling hilarious and true stories in front of a live audience at LA's most distinguished gentlemen's club, Cheetahs. Season 2 of This Is Not Happening will premiere in 2016 and it was recently picked up for a third season on Comedy Central.

In addition to his TV and standup projects, Ari also hosts the wildly popular podcast The Skeptic Tank, a weekly interview show where he chats with everyone from parents to comedians to prostitutes "to help better understand humanity and also to make fart jokes." The podcast is consistently among the top-rated podcasts on iTunes and averages over 100,000 downloads per week.

Ari is a regular panel guest on the popular TV series @midnight and has appeared on Comedy Underground with Dave Attell, both on Comedy Central. He has also been featured on Showtime's The Green Room with Paul Provenza, Comedy Central's Brody Stevens: Enjoy It, and HBO's Down & Dirty with Jim Norton, and he appeared alongside Rob Schneider and Adrian Brody in the film InAPPropriate Comedy. He performs standup to sold out crowds nationwide and has been featured at the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, San Francisco SketchFest, SXSW, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and the Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival.

“One To Watch” - Elite Daily

“A force of nature” - The Scotsman Newspaper

“A promising favorite” - The New York Times

“One of Funniest People You Should Know About…. Her Twitter feed is equal parts intentionally bad puns, Machiavelli references and language that would make a teamster blush tomato red” - Triple J Magazine

“Giggle Goddess” - Comediva

“It Girl….brash and bold, leaving no prisoners and issuing no apologies” - Holly Pinafore Magazine

“The Brilliant Leah Bonnema…” - Village Voice

“Leah Bonnema is the most talented comedian I've ever worked with. She is completely honest in her material and her delivery pulling directly from her everyday life and talking with the audience, making us feel at home with her and relaxed in the palm of her hand.”-Karen Sommers Theater Director and Media Arts Manager at The Art of Elysium, Los Angeles

“Leah Bonnema's stage presence is a force to be reckoned with. Her personal storytelling coupled with her rapid fire wit is unprecedented. This is one comic who truly commands your attention and dominates the stage!” -Blondelogicblog.com

“Leah Bonnema, founder and host of Rosie the Irreverent, a comedy line-up showcasing hilarious female comics, has done yearly benefits for Pets for Life NYC, an animal surrender prevention program. Leah's benefits have allowed Pets for Life NYC to assist hundreds of animals in need. She is a great asset to Pets for Life NYC as both a volunteer with the program and as the warm and welcoming host of these wonderful comedy benefits. Leah is such a fabulous comedian! And if that is not enough, we love Leah even more because she is the proud mom of two rescued guinea pigs, Tupac and R2D2." -Jenny Olsen Pets for Life NYC Coordinator The Humane Society of the United States

“The first female comic, Leah Bonnema, kicked off her set with the recent passing of Utah's Kill The Miscarriers bill. Her least controversial bit was about telling a kid in PetCo to "Shut the fuck up!" She's only the second comic I've ever seen, after Sarah Silverman, to pull off abortion jokes and I don't know that I've seen anyone do a suicide joke and make it the perfect button to their set.” -117-Hudson.com

“By far the best performance was given by the beautiful Leah Bonnema. The actress used her onstage powers to shine and is absolutely a joy to watch." -Jade Estaban Estrada, Arts and Entertainment Columnist for the Villager-New York and The Downtown Express New York
