He has appeared at the Boston Comedy Festival, the New York Comedy Festival, and performed a nationally televised gala set for the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival.

The show has been adapted as a feature film and is being produced by Timshel Pictures. Aaron also recently appeared off-Broadway in Jeremy Levy's one act play 21 DAYS and is a subject in the upcoming documentary A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE about 6 Canadian Comedians who travelled to Israel to perform to diverse audiences.

Mark Normand
Mark Normand
Mark Normand is known for his "relentlessly punchy writing and expert delivery" (The Laugh Button)that has made him an internationally known touring comedian. 2016 has included multiple appearances on Louis CK's HORACE AND PETE, and an upcoming appearance on Seeso's "WHAT'S YOUR F@%king
Deal?!" and return appearances on Comedy Central's INSIDE AMY SCHUMER and TBS's CONAN.

Mark also won Caroline's March Madness competition, beating out 63 other comedians, and released an album with Comedy Central records titled "Still Got It". This is a shocker for all of us but he was also voted Village Voice's "Best Comedian of 2013", I know right? Mark was born and raised in New Orleans, LA surprisingly to two normal parents. As a kid he spent most of his time shooting short films and wetting the bed. Mark started doing comedy right after college and quickly moved to New York. Mark now does comedy clubs and colleges across the country and has been involved in many festivals including Portland, Seattle, DC, Boston, and was featured as a New Face at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Mark will be performing at the Melbourne Comedy Festival and Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival in 2016. Mark is a constand podcast guest, appears often on Sirius XM radio, and when home in New York Mark runs two comedy shows and two podcasts. His podcast "Tuesdays with Stories!" with co-host Joe List, also tours. More annoying accolades: Mark was named one of Comedy Central's Comics To Watch for the 2011 New York Comedy Festival. Mark was also named to Esquire's "Best New Comedians 2012", Splitsider's "Top 10 Up and Coming Comedians on Each Coast", and Time Out New York's "21 New York Comedy Scene Linchpins". 

Mark still lives in New York City. 
Judah Friedlander
Judah Friedlander
Stand-up comedy has been Judah's main thing since he first started in 1989. His onstage persona of The World Champion has taken on different shades over the years. It was initially a satire on narcissism & braggarts. Then the persona morphed into being a real life superhero (who is actually humble) subliminally getting audiences to question why we have heroes. For the past several years & currently, Judah's act has been predominantly satirizing American exceptionalism as well U.S. domestic and foreign policy. The World Champion is a champion of the world - who stands up for earth's rights and the people, animals, and plants of the planet. If America does the right thing, Judah will be the next president of the United States. Judah has a stand-up special & album coming out soon.

After performing stand up for the first time at the age of 17 he continued to do so through high school and college.

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.
