Nikki Glaser
Nikki Glaser

She was the co-host of the MTV late night talk show, Nikki & Sara LIVE, as well as the popular podcast, You Had To Be There. She lives in New York City, performing nightly at clubs such as The Comedy Cellar and The Stand, and travels frequently as a nationally touring headliner.

Marina Franklin
Marina Franklin
New-York based Marina Franklin is emerging as one of the hottest comedians in the comedy scene today, with such notable appearances as, Wanda Syke's Herlarious, Showtime's Women Who Kill, Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show, The Jay Leno Show, Chappelle's Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, NBC's Last Comic Standing Season II, and Showtime at The Apollo.

She is a favorite in Comedy Festivals across the world, like Melbourne Comedy Festival, Scotland's Glasgow Comedy Festival, BBC's World Stand's Up, Rotterdam's Comedy Factory, Montreal's Just For Laughs, Ireland's Kilkenny Comedy Festival, and Nashville's Bonnaroo Music Festival. Franklin's career in entertainment wasn't always in stand-up comedy; originally from Chicago, she made her acting debut at the Illinois Rep Theatre. She then quickly realized her love for acting and went on to pursue a MFA in acting at Syracuse University. Franklin is viciously likeable, if there is such a thing.

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.
Monroe Martin
Monroe Martin
Monroe Martin is a colorful and imaginative comedian with a lifetime of hard knock experiences that have been spun into side-splitting jokes and stories.

Monroe was born and raised in Philadelphia, one usually wouldn’t find Monroe’s life story laughable. After all, how inappropriate is it to laugh at a foster child who jumped around from one dysfunctional family to another? Sit in the audience of one of Monroe’s performances and you’ll find yourself laughing at his adversity. Monroe’s honest and open approach to joke and storytelling universalizes his experiences.

Monroe’s creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit. His intelligent and hysterical perspective resonates and has earned him respect among his peers.

Monroe is on his way to becoming the type of comedian he admires—one who says exactly what he wants, the way he wants to say it. He idolizes these types of comedians because he realizes that it takes guts to say how you truly feel whether it be right or wrong. It is especially hard to discuss the topics that are considered taboo and/or controversial. By saying what he wants, how he wants, Monroe is creating his legacy of being one of the funniest comedians in America.

Monroe says “All good comedians speak of life experience through their own unique perspectives.” Based on his experience, He has the makings of a great comedian, and is well on his way.

You've seen Monroe in the current season of Last Comic Standing. He can also be seen on the upcoming season of Adam Devine's House Party on Comedy Central. Monroe has also been featured on AXS TV's Gotham Comedy Live. For on Monroe log onto www.monroemartincomedy.com or follow him on twitter @monroemartinIII
