Over 20 million people have seen Jarrod’s popular Action Figure Therapy characters and most recently the series was named LA Weekly’s “Top Comic To Watch in 2012″.  His character Jungle was also featured on the front page of the Huffington Post Comedy section in 2011.  Jarrod has also been seen on TBS’ Lopez Tonight and Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. Campus Activities Magazine named him as one of the Hot Comics of 2009 and Top Comics to Watch in 2010.  In 2009 Jarrod was final 4 at the San Francisco Comedy Competition and in 2010 was invited back for Detroit Comedy Festival’s “Best of Fest” as well as host of 2010/2011 Laughing Skull Festival.  Jarrod spends his time in LA and is a regular performer at independent shows as well as the Improvs, Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and in 2010 had the pleasure of hosting a Comedy Death Ray show.

“Jarrod harris‘ act is an oddly comfortable mix of trailer-park filth, comic angst and hipster irony. While his style may fit into several categories along the comedy spectrum, his clever writing only fits into one: funny.”  Noah Gardenswartz – Creative Loafing.

"[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.”

Lisa Landry came up through the famed New York City comedy circuit to become an audience favorite at clubs, colleges and theaters across the country.

Landry has appeared on CBS’s “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” & “The Bonnie Hunt Show” on NBC. She starred in her own half hour Special, “Comedy Central Presents Lisa Landry.” And a nationwide vote catapulted her special to third place out of 100 top comedians in Comedy Central’s annual “Standup Showdown.” She’s the first woman to ever place in the top three.

Landry’s CD Put Your Keys in the Key Bowl was selected by iTunes as one of the “Top 10 Best Comedy CDs” of 2008. She is one of a handful of comedians chosen by TBS for their “We Know Funny” series of stand-up style commercials. She’s also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and co-starred on NBC’s “Law and Order: SVU.”

The Louisiana native was featured on “Brett Butler’s Southern Belles of Comedy” DVD. She did commentary for E!’s “Forbes Top 100 Celebrities” and CMT’s “20 Greatest Redneck Moments,” where Landry was chosen as a “Top Pick” by TV Guide. Her guest appearances include Fox’s “Morning Show with Mike and Juliet,” the “Bob and Tom Show,” Fox’s “Redeye” and the “Hollyweird” segment on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country.” For four years, Landry was a comedy writer for US Weekly Magazine. Punchline Magazine describes Landry best: “She’s an incredibly skilled comedian, a controlling presence onstage and a master of pacing and delivery.”

Trust us, you don’t want to miss seeing Lisa Landry!

A true comedy veteran, Alabama-born Vic Henley has done it all. Co-author of a national bestselling book with fellow comedian Jeff Foxworthy, Vic has appeared on HBO, CBS, NBC, FOX, MTV, BRAVO, CMT and just about every other stand up comedy show on television. He was a VH-1 VJ and has his own Comedy Central Presents half hour special as well as performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

With an easy style that covers a variety of topics, Vic’s material has been featured on nationally syndicated radio shows like John Boy and Billy as well as SIRIUS XM’s Raw Dog and Blue Collar comedy channels.

Vic’s innate ability to turn perfectly reasonable adults into guffawing idiots has made him a crowd favorite all over the world. Whether it’s HBO’s US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, or the granddaddy of them all-The Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, Henley has drawn rave reviews and packed houses. His success at Edinburgh led to a slew of BBC TV appearances on stand up and talk shows, some where he was the first American to perform.

Vic has also performed on over 500 college campuses receiving 8 “Comedian of the Year” nominations. His popularity in the Corporate and Association markets has landed him many high profile gigs including co-hosting an event with former President George H.W. Bush. In 2009 Vic combined his writing and performing skills in the Sacha Baron Cohen feature film, Bruno.

Vic resides in New York City and can be seen on numerous stages including The Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club, Comix and The Comedy Cellar.

Tom Simmons does an unbelievable job of blending comedy and philosophy into one of the best all around comedy shows that you can see. A true comedian in every sense of the word. He has toured practically non-stop for ten years developing his act and himself. He has appeared on Comedy Central, Showtime, BET, NBC, and has written for numerous comedians. Tracks from all four of his comedy CD'€™s can be heard daily on both XM and Sirius radio. He has appeared on Bob and Tom, at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, The Boston Comedy Festival, as well as performing with Comics on Duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is truly a great comedian who has a unique ability to make you think differently, question cultural and personal beliefs- all while being incredibly funny. Seriously spit-take funny. Tom's goal as a comedian is not just to be funny and make you laugh, but to genuinely be one of the best- to be mentioned in the same sentence with greats like Chappelle, Rock, Carlin, Seinfeld. Come see this show and see what constant work and dedication means. Tom'€™s comedy takes chances that most comedians won'€™t take all while embracing the audience and genuinely caring that they laugh and enjoy themselves. The show will entertain with subjects from being a new father and relationships, to socially relevant issues like violence, war, racism, and frustrations we all have with the world and one another. It is easily relatable and seriously funny... Like a Blue Collar Tour for people that read.

Dave Waite’s oddball stories and rants have made him a favorite at clubs around the Midwest. A square peg who found happiness when he stopped trying to fit in, Dave’s hilarious tales of personal failure have won the love of audiences young and old alike.

Although Dave is known for his constant grin, the first few years his post-college life didn’t give him much to smile about. After graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in the lucrative field of geography, Dave drifted through a series of jobs ranging from call center representative to substitute teacher, experiences that later became a part of his act.

On his days as a substitute teacher, Dave says, “My kids would come up to me and say, ‘Mr. Waite, you’re going to die from smoking!’ I was like, ‘No, Timmy, more like drinking!’”

After being fired from nearly every job and having zero luck at finding love, Dave’s self-esteem hit rock bottom in early 2004. His salvation came in the form of a newspaper ad for a stand-up comedy class at the Funny Bone in Newport, KY. Dave took the class and fell in love with stand-up, quickly gaining a reputation amongst both comedians and audiences as one of the Midwest’s wittiest and most unpredictable young comics.
