A former P.E. teacher, West Virginia native Reno Collier has endeared himself to a wide range of audiences from college students to church softball teams. With a contagious laugh and friendly, almost intoxicating demeanor, Reno's observations often find him recalling mishaps of his West Virginia cousins, his Scottish heritage, unruly in-laws and alien abductions.

Reno's journey began at the Punchline Comedy Club in Atlanta, GA where he tended bar to supplement his day job. One night he found himself on stage during the weekly open mic night. His unique outlook on life - mixed with a six-pack - was instantly popular and provided a platform to launch a career as a comedian.

Reno has built a reputation by selling out comedy clubs and colleges nationwide. In 2004 he joined Larry The Cable Guy on the hugely successful "2004 Tour of America".

Reno's other national tours look more like a comedian's wish list than a resume, including theater and arena tours with the legendary Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Ron White. In January 2007, he re-joined Larry The Cable Guy for his wildly successful arena tour currently spanning the United States and Canada.

Reno's past TV credits include NBC's "Late Friday", "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher", "The Martin Short Show", VH-1's "The List", and Comedy Central's "Premium Blend".

In 2005 and 2006, Reno headlined the "Comics on Duty" tour for American troops stationed in Iraq. He is a regular fixture on the Bob & Tom syndicated radio show and Country Music Television (CMT), hosting various specials for the network. He has performed at the prestigious HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, CO and the Montreal Comedy Festival, and in 2005, taped his own "Comedy Central Presents" half-hour special. He can currently be heard during his weekly call-ins to the Blue Collar Comedy Channel on Sirius Satellite Radio.

A recipient of life saving heart surgery, John Roy grew up an only child in Chicago's ethnically diverse Rogers Park neighborhood.

John's parents were an ex Jesuit who worked for Chicago's urban Loyola University, and a psychotherapist, who infused a love of the arts and philosophy into the boy from an early age.  He repaid their efforts by becoming a stand up comedian.

John began his career performing in independent rooms in Chicago.   After honing his act in clubs around the Midwest, John competed and was crowned the first champion of CBS' “Star Search,” in 2003.

He has performed stand up on numerous television shows, including “The Tonight Show,” “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” and “Last Comic Standing,” where he was a semi-finalist.  He made his debut on “Conan,” in 2012.  His web series, "Marc Maron in Space" with Marc Maron and James Adomian, premieres in 2013, produced by IFC.  John's second album will be released on AST Records in 2013.

He has appeared numerous times as a panelist on cable networks like VH-1, Fox News, and Fuel TV.

John's CD “Dressed for Recess,” was released in 2008 on RBC records and continues to receive frequent airplay on Sirius Satellite Radio.

John performs in clubs across North America, including the Comic Strip in New York and the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.  He is also a regular performer on such acclaimed independent comedy shows as “Whiplash,” “Comedy Bang Bang,” “Meltdown,” and “Comedy at the Knitting Factory.”  In 2008, he was invited to perform for the World Bank in Washington, DC.

John was a guest at the 2004 HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, the 2009 Just For Laughs Festival in Chicago, and has been an annual guest at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland since 2010.

Mike Birbiglia is a comedian, writer, actor, and director known for his highly personal approach to comedy. Birbiglia burst onto the scene in 2006 with his critically acclaimed debut, “Two Drink Mike” on Comedy Central Records, and followed that with “My Secret Public Journal Live,” “Sleepwalk With Me Live” and “My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend.” He toured his most recent show, “Thank God for Jokes,” to more than 100 cities, and filmed it for Netflix, where it will premiere in 2017. Birbiglia can also be seen as Danny Pearson in Orange is the New Black, as well as in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck, The Fault in Our Stars, and in his own films, Sleepwalk With Me and Don’t Think Twice. See Birbiglia online at www.birbigs.com and at twitter.com/Birbigs

Show Description
“Mike Birbiglia’s Working It Out”
Fresh off his recent hit show, “Thank God for Jokes,” that toured 100 cities, ran off-Broadway for 4 months, and was nominated for the Lucille Lortel award, Mike Birbiglia will be making some rare club appearances in 2016 and 2017. Birbiglia is underway on an all-new hour of comedy. In his own words, “I’ve never been more excited about standup in my whole career. These shows will be a blend of entirely new material, improvisation, and a few stories from ‘Thank God for Jokes.’ These shows are raw, semi-improvised, unfinished. As rough as it might be, I promise that my heart will be in it and sometimes my writing has to catch up to my heart. That said, they will be FUN. And FUNNY.”

Stewart Huff was born in Campbellsville, Kentucky and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has been performing comedy for over 15 years, beginning when he decided to drop out of college to become a writer. Currently touring theatres, comedy clubs and special events across the country, Huff reaches past the norm for his genuine -- and genuinely unexpected -- comedy. His knack for embracing the foibles of humanity and his refreshing originality make him as likeable as he is hilarious. A storyteller at heart, Huff continues to amaze with his clever material and personal wit.

Huff has performed in comedy clubs nationally and internationally, including the Improv in Los Angeles and New York, the Punchline in Atlanta and the Funny Bone in Omaha, as well as countless others.

Invited to perform in the HBO Las Vegas Festival, Huff’s act can be viewed on pay-per-view. He was also a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival in 2006.

He currently lives near Athens, Georgia with his girlfriend. There, in his crooked farmhouse, he drops off the various items he collects while on the road, including an antique barber chair, countless vintage photographs, and an extensive collection of LP’s. She likes this.

Look for him in the upcoming documentary Road Comics: Big Work on Small Stages, currently in post-production and slated for release in Fall 2011.

Jimmy Pardo is as funny talking to a stranger in an elevator as he is talking to a crowd from the comic stage. That's because everything he observes or thinks, he immediately scans to find the funny. And he always finds the funny. After Jimmy was told for like the thousandth time that he was even funnier offstage than he was onstage, he dropped most of the jokes from his act. Now he spends nearly his entire set interacting with, and making fun of, his audience. And they love it.

Jimmy stands at the very center of the comedy world. That's not only because he's the ultimate "comic's comic," (as he's often called), but also because he represents where comedy is going, and everybody wants to come along.

Jimmy's raucous-but-smart weekly podcast, "Never Not Funny," has revolutionized the way comedians use the internet to connect with their audiences. It's the No. 2 paid podcast hosted by a comedian, after Ricky Gervais's. His guest list reads like a Who's Who of comedy: Conan O'Brien, Adam Carolla, Kevin Pollack, and Sarah Silverman have all been guests. Actors Jon Hamm, Ty Burrell and Craig Bierko have appeared on several of the funniest episodes.

"Never Not Funny" was voted by both iTunes and USA Today as one of the top podcasts of 2006 and 2007. It was an Editor's Pick in the September 2009 issue of Esquire magazine. In 2010, GQ magazine called the show "The Number 1 Relatively Obscure Thing You Need to Be Paying Attention To." The show, which started in Jimmy's dining room in 2006, now regularly hits the road with live tapings at festivals like SF Sketchfest, MaxFunCon, the Vancouver Comedy Festival and Bumbershoot. Twice, Jimmy and Co. have presented the "Pardcast-A-Thon," taping for up to 12 hours to raise money for The Smile Train.

Besides the podcast, Jimmy continues to headline at some of America's top comedy clubs and currently works as Conan O'Brien's opening act on "Conan," getting the studio audience into a laughing mood before the show tapes (he did the same for Conan on "The Tonight Show").

A true multimedia talent, Jimmy has frequently appeared on television and in movies. He has performed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." He had his own half-hour special, "Comedy Central Presents Jimmy Pardo." He hosted "National Lampoon's Funny Money" on the Game Show Network, and was the co-host of AMC's "Movies at Our House" for four seasons. He has hosted episodes of VH1's "The Surreal Life" and "Love Lounge" and NBC's "Late Friday." He's appeared on popular shows such as "Monk," "That 70s Show," and "Becker." And he has acted in independent films such as "Relative Strangers" and "The Godfather of Green Bay."

Jimmy was the co-writer and star of the critically-acclaimed one-man show subtly titled "Attention Must Be Paid: The Jimmy Pardo Story" and a live pilot presentation, "Jimmy Pardo's Dance Party." He hosts monthly shows at the famed Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. He has recorded two comedy albums, "Uno" and "Pompous Clown."

A decade into his standup career, Steve Gillespie moved from Minneapolis to LA, recently made an appearance on Conan, and released his critically acclaimed first album, Stever Fever. Prior to that, this gentleman degenerate spent most of his life traveling the country regaling audiences with his delightful self-destruction.

Gillespie’s act is a slaphappy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona and coarse yet effective word choice. His hilarious self-flagellation and blistering social commentary has also earned him spots on Fox’s Laughs as well as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. He was a finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic, a runner up for Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laughfest, and his debut album Stever Fever from Rooftop Comedy was named a top-10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.

Gillespie has also had the pleasure of sharing the biggest stages with some of the best comics in the country, including opening appearances for Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, Tom Segura, Kyle Kinnane, Tom Green, Harland Williams, Doug Benson, Emo Phillips, and Gilbert Gottfried.
