Bengt Washburn is an Aquarius with Hazel eyes who prefers boxer briefs, solid deodorants, and Crest toothpaste. He is 5'9" tall, weighs about 149 pounds and can bench 150 pounds three times without a spotter. He has a vertical leap of 16 inches. 8 years ago a lump appeared on his right thigh. Its not visible from the stage but according to some kids at the water park, it looks creepy. Many people say Bengt looks kind of like a monkey.

Bengt Washburn was born in Salt Lake City, Utah but grew up in a large Utah town (1,200 people) as the fifth child in a small Mormon family (7 children). Bengt is married to an officer in the United States Airforce. They have lived in 6 different cities over the last eleven years. Most recently he moved to Springfield, Virginia (Washington D.C.) after living in Stuttgart, Germany for 3 years.

Bengt is a former winner of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He has been seen on The Late Late Show with Craig Fergusen, Live at Gotham on Comedy Central and most recently Conan on TBS. He was invited to perform at the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, The Boston Comedy Festival, the Aspen Laff Festival and Gilda’s Laugh Fest in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

He’s been heard on NPR, PRI and Bob and Tom. All three of his comedy Cd’s can be heard playing on XM Sirius radio.

Most people who know him would say Bengt is a logistically impaired ditz, but his comedy is described as intelligent, surprisingly universal considering the content matter and profoundly funny.

Mike Lebovitz

Mike Lebovitz began his comedy career at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He's been delighting and confounding audiences with his intoxicating brand of wild-eyed humor ever since. Equal parts lovable and absurd, Mike's act careens from topic to topic with the force of a runaway freight train with a loose wheel and some questionable couplings. Audiences have described the experience as "spontaneous," "joyful" and "slightly terrifying."
Mike cut his teeth in Chicago (not as painful as it sounds), where he was a member of the popular collective Comedians You Should Know and a regular contributor to WBEZ's weekly live literary magazine, The Paper Machete. He also co-curatored (with his buddy Junior) Señorita Weiner's Top Secret Humor Experiment and Ice Cream Social Club, Chicago's longest-running clandestine, nomadic comedy showcase and the original members-only ice cream social.
A burgeoning international star now based in New York, Mike has offended nostrils in Montreal as a "New Face" of the 2013 Just For Laughs, and in Switzerland where he won the international competition at the 2013 The Montreux Comedy Fest. Mike returned to Montreux in 2014 as the "Godfather" of the competition, that year he also recorded his debut album, Two Slob Household for Stand-Up Records. It is still possible that it may be released one day. In 2015 he appeared on Season 9 of NBC's Last Comic Standing

Josh Sneed is quickly making his mark as one of the top young comics in the business, and for the purpose of this bio, has become skilled in the art of writing in the third person.  After quitting a comfy day job working for Procter & Gamble, he’s made excellent strides in following his passion for making people laugh.  He’s opened for such acts as Dave Chappelle, Dane Cook, and Lewis Black.

In 2008, Josh finished 2nd out of 100 of Comedy Central’s top comedians in the Annual Stand-up Showdown, earning him a deal to record a new album on Comedy Central Records.  That album was released on Sept. 30, 2008 and was given rave reviews.  iTunes selected it as one of the Top 10 comedy albums released last year.  In 2006, Josh filmed a 30-minute special, “Comedy Central Presents: Josh Sneed” that debuted in March 2007 and is currently re-airing.  In November of 2006, Josh placed 6th in the Sierra Mist/MySpace Stand-up or Sit Down Challenge out of over 2,000 entrants.  Finishing high in competitions is nothing new to Josh.  In 4th grade he earned a blue ribbon for throwing a softball through a tire.

In 2004, he performed at the Just For Laugh's Montreal Comedy Festival in the "New Faces of Comedy" group, one of the highest honors that a comedian at his level can achieve.  In 2007, Josh was chosen by Comedy Central to perform in the inaugural South Beach Comedy Festival, and garnered praise from Punchline Magazine for his performance at the Aspen Comedy Festival.  Josh has also be seen performing in large venue theaters across the country as an opening act for the various members of "The Blue Collar Comedy Tour", and has made several appearances on the nationally syndicated "The Bob & Tom Show".

Hello, my name is Sean Patton. I’m a comedian based in Los Angeles and New York, by way of New Orleans. I began doing standup in the Crescent City and have since performed in comedy clubs across the US and Canada. I’ve also performed at The Melbourne International Comedy Festival (2011), Just for Laughs Chicago (2013), Just for Laughs Toronto (2013), and at Just for Laughs Montreal (2008, 2010, 2012). I’ve appeared on Comedy Central’s ‘Live at Gotham’ (2009), ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ (2010), and twice on ‘Conan’ (2011, 2013). 2013 also marked the release of my Comedy Central Half Hour. I’ve also been on ‘@midnight’ (2014, 2015) and will be on Season 2 of ‘The Meltdown’ (2015). As for acting, I’ve appeared on IFC’s ‘Maron’ and Comedy Central’s ‘Inside Amy Schumer’. Those are the things I’ve done that I’m proud of. For a list of things I’ve done that I’m not so proud of, yeah right you ain’t never gonna know that! I love what I do, some of you will too (Thanks!), and some of you will not (Thanks for coming). This is all I have, and I want to share it with you. Whomever you are.

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.

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.”
