In just a few short years Kyle Grooms has become one of the funniest young comics on the New York stand-up circuit. His love for comedy caused him to abandon his career as Art Director for a Hispanic television network and perform comedy full time. Today he is a headlining comedian with numerous television shows to his credit. This New Jersey born comedian is determined to be one of the strongest comedic voices of our generations.

Kyle delivers an honest and intelligent approach towards comedy. Kyle gives an intimate look into his life experiences growing up in the American Melting Pot. Kyle says, "I want to spill my guts on stage." His exploration of the human experience crosses many ethnic and social boundaries. For this reason that Kyle has been invited to perform on shows such as diverse as "Showtime at the Apollo," "Comedy Picante," "Premium Blend" and "Tough Crowd with Collin Quinn." Kyle has also been well received throughout England, Holland and at the Montreal Comedy Festival.

His interest in comedy started around the age of nine. Often left home alone, Kyle kept himself entertained by listening to eight track tapes of singer Otis Redding and comedian Richard Pryor. Never a great singer, Kyle would perform Pryor's jokes for his friends and family. Eventually he would develop his own comedic wit. But comedy wasn't his first career choice after high school. As a former graffiti artist, Kyle chose to attend the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale where he received a degree in commercial art.

Kyle's TV and Radio credits include "Def Comedy Jam," "Comic View," "Que Locos," "Chappelle's Show," and as "Information Guy" on "Straight Plan for the Gay Man."

Kevin Brennan

Kevin Brennan was born in Chicago, Illinois to Charles and Ethel Brennan (his parents requested that we not use their real names to protect their identities). Brennan (although I'm writing this myself I'm using the 3rd person to pretend I paid a fancy publicist to do it) is one of the country's top comedians. He was voted "Best Comedian" at the 2005 Aspen Comedy Festival which led to him taping his own HBO half-hour comedy special. Brennan started his career in Chicago but soon relocated to New York City to pursue his dream of being on the "Late Show with David Letterman." He nailed his first Letterman set which led to bookings on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "Last Call with Carson Daly." Brennan is a former writer/performer on "Saturday Night Live." He recently taped a pilot for NBC called "Number One Son." Kevin is one of ten children and became a stand-up comedian because he didn't get enough attention as a child. He can also be found on on myspace.com/kevinbrennancomedy. Enjoy.

In general, Ryan Stout loves to explore morally repugnant subject matter with smart and sterile objectivity. His exaggerated honesty, delightful insincerity, and cute self-righteousness sell his wickedly witty material. No matter what the topic, this suit clad comic appeals to everyone's sense of logic. And to assure his brand of "offensive humor" stays on an intellectual level, he tries to keep swear words out of his act. Oh, he’ll talk about rape and abortion, but it won’t be filthy.

Ryan Stout is the winner of the Boston International Comedy Festival’s stand-up comedy competition (2005). In addition, he was a featured performer at HBO’s The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas (2005) and at HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO (2006). Soon after his festival appearances, he hosted two game show pilots for MTV, I.Q. (2007) and Singled Out (2007). He performed stand-up on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham (2007) and made several appearances on the nationally syndicated radio program The Bob&Tom Show.

Stout settled-in to his television career by reviewing, re-capping, and capping-on several of MTV's popular reality shows.  As the host of the network's "aftershow" series A Shot at Love: The Hangover (2007/2008) and More Amore (2008), he told jokes, performed in short sketches, and interviewed reality show contestants. Establishing himself as a go-to host for any event, the network called on Stout to host television specials, including MTV's Most Valuable Players (2008) and, the iconic, MTV Spring Break '08 (2008).  Another MTV game show pilot called Pop-a-razzi! (2008) followed, along with a position hosting a series called MTV's Ranked (2008).

In the midst of all his television work he still managed to continue doing stand-up all over the United States and performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival (2008) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The following year brought a few more MTV jobs, hosting reunion episodes of reality shows and, as you might’ve guessed, yet another game show pilot.  That year also brought appearances on WGN’s television version of the The Bob & Tom Show (2009) and on E! Entertainment’s Chelsea Lately (2009/2011).  And, by year’s end, he filmed his very own Comedy Central Presents… half-hour special, which premiered on April 30, 2010. 

Viewers ranked Stout's half-hour special as one of the top ten best in Comedy Central's 2011 Stand-up Showdown.  A few months later, he made his late-night stand-up debut on CONAN.

"[Troy Baxley] is a favorite among stand-ups”

– The Onion

Twice a national finalist at the prestigious HBO Comedy Festival, Troy Baxley is already well-known in comedy circle.

The best restaurants are those where chefs dine on their nights off. Troy Baxley is the comic that other comics, from open-mic’ers to top A-List comedians watch every chance they get. Even Letterman talent scout Eddie Brill calls himself a “huge Troy Baxley fan.” Word.

Others are catching on too. The Onion points out that “…only recently has [Baxley’s] weird brand of impish comedy started to penetrate the mainstream…” and from the way people turn out to see him every time he plays a gig, well, tru dat, yo!

Baxley’s act mirrors the thoughts and attention spans of America’s largest demographic: Lifetime “C” Students. A lifetime “C” student himself, Baxley knows a thing or two about overachievement by way of shortcuts. Remember that annoying kid in grade school who would always remind the teacher to assign homework? Well Baxley was the kid who heckled that kid; and he hasn’t stopped since. Word up, party people.

Sometimes the best acts are the hardest to describe. How do you describe a comic who goes on a five minute love-rant about his girlfriend’s beautiful jacked up buck teeth, then waxes poetic about a side-street meat-jones trying to get some cross-town she-hobo? Hilarious.

Don’t worry, he doesn’t know what it means either, but that’s half the point, and why the Las Vegas Sun said “Don’t let the rational and mild mannered shell fool you, Baxley can get as twisted as they come.”

You simply have to see it firsthand to get the slightest idea of what is going on inside his insanely-funny mind. And people see him again and again. Everywhere he performs, fans return, requesting their favorite bits – which are constantly changing and evolving from the last time they saw Troy Baxley “kickin’ it street.”
