Greer Barnes
Greer Barnes
Greer Barnes was born in the Bronx, New York City. Raised by his mother and Jewish stepfather, Greer received his Bar Mitzvah at age thirteen. Athletics led Greer to baseball, in which he excelled. Having been scouted by the San Francisco Giants, he seemed to be on his way until he suffered a career-ending injury at age 18. Following his second dream of stand-up comedy, Greer was quickly noticed and began headlining at clubs and colleges across the country.
Greer has done commercial work for both the NBA and the NFL. His television credits include "In Living Color," "Last Call with Carson Daly," Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," "The Late Show with David Letterman" and "Chappelle's Show." Greer was able to combine his love for baseball and acting when he appeared with Kevin Costner in the film "For the Love of the Game." His first "Comedy Central Presents" half-hour special premiered in 2009.
Sam Morril
Sam Morril
Sam Morril, one of the fastest-rising stand-up comics in New York City, is also one of the best joke writers in the scene today. How do you know that’s true? Because he is writing this bio, and he wouldn’t lie about that to get extra work.

In 2011, Sam won The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and was named one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch.” More recently, Sam has been seen on Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and “Conan” on TBS for multiple appearances.

He’s also been on Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, @Midnight, and Inside Amy Schumer. Sam recorded his debut album on Comedy Central records, which went to #1 on iTunes and made numerous top 10 lists. He also released his very own half-hour Comedy Central special.

Sam is currently hosting his very own show on MSG called “People Talking Sports” Monday-Thursday at 11PM, and each episode is uploaded to YouTube because I know you’re all too cheap to pay for cable.

Sam also just finished taping his first hour special on Comedy Central — it’ll be premiered this year in 2018, so be on the lookout!

You can see Sam regularly at The Comedy Cellar in New York City, and some other clubs. He even pops into those pretentious indy hipster shows, and is regularly on the road hitting new cities.

Now is your chance to see Sam. Do it soon before you catch swine flu or something. It’s out there!
Big Jay Oakerson
Big Jay Oakerson
Big Jay Oakerson is one of the most beloved and easily recognizable comedians in New York City. His easy charm and dirty delivery endear him to audiences every night at The Comedy Cellar, The Stand and Stand Up New York. He’s no stranger to the rest of America, either, regularly headlining across the country and playing festivals including Bonaroo, Jager's Korn tour, Rock Star Energy Drink's Mayhem Fest, Gathering of the Juggalos and Funny or Die’s Oddball Festival. Jay has also recently been featured on This Is Not Happening with Ari Shaffir, Comedy Underground with Dave Attell, FX’s Louie, Inside Amy Schumer, and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

This last year, Jay's Comedy Central hour special "Big Jay Oakerson: Live At Webster Hall" premiered. Filmed at the legendary music venue in New York City providing the perfect heavy metal vibe for the show. Jay's comedy is raw, compelling and honest to the core, as he takes viewers on a journey of brutal truths about his relationship with his teenage daughter, sexual tension between him and his best friend Dave and advise to women on how to delicately handle a man with an unfortunate penis size. His second album with Comedy Central Records, The Crowdwork Sessions: What’s Your F@#king Deal?! Recorded in 2013 live at The Stand, it captures Jay’s raunchy, off-the-cuff essence with a full hour of crowdwork. It joins Jay’s first album, An American Storyteller, a one-hour onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock n' roll hilarity recorded at Stand Up New York in 2009.

Jay is co-host of two wildly popular podcasts - “The Most Offensive Podcast on Earth” Legion of Skanks with Luis J. Gomez and Dave Smith and The SDR (Sex, Drugs & Rock & Roll) Show with Ralph Sutton. He also the co-host's of The Bonfire on Comedy Central Radio Sirius XM 95 alongside Dan Soder Mondays and Wednesdays 6-8pm EST.

Longtime fans of Jay’s will also remember him as Neil, the sexually ambiguous owner of a NYC rock club, on IFC’s Z-Rock, and from his appearances on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Comedy Central Presents and Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. He’s wowed audiences at the prestigious Just For Laughs Montreal festival an impressive four times, both on The Nasty Show and with his solo show, The American Storyteller. And he’s a fan favorite guest on Sirius XM’s Bennington (previously Ron & Fez).
