Saleem is not only a great Comedian… he is also a great Contrarian: “Even if you agree with me about something, it’s not for the same reasons.” What is not up for debate are audience reactions to this Ohio native. His instant likeability and dynamic stage presence complement his bold and refreshingly original  material.

His ability to appeal to a broad audience without compromising his distinctive comedic “voice” makes him a hot commodity in theaters, corporate events, colleges and clubs worldwide.

Born and raised in Dayton, OH. labeled the “City of Innovators!” It has been home to such luminaries as Edwin C. Moses, Dr. Charles Drew, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Erma Bombeck, John Kettering and most famously the Wright Brothers. Saleem jokes he has much in common with the famous aviation pioneers : “Like Orville and Wilbur, the minute I could, I flew out of Dayton too…” the comedian quips. “I rarely go back…. mainly because my family still lives there.” However, the sky is the limit for Saleem and he is soaring his way to new comedic heights!

His credits include appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, TBS’s “Lopez Tonight” FOX’s “Best Damn SportShow…Period” and BET’s “Comic View.” He has worked with music greats “The Temptations”, “Boyz II Men” and Vanessa Williams. Comedy legends such as George Carlin, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, D.L. Hughley, Kathleen Madigan and Gary Shandling.

With International engagements that include stops in The United Kingdom, Canada, The Netherlands and the Caribbean. Charity performances in Israel and Mexico. The Honor to perform on tours supporting United States Service personnel for The Armed Forces Entertainment Network in Iraq and Kuwait. Clearly demonstrating a universal appeal that has put him in demand Worldwide.

As a professional actor, you may have seen Saleem on ABC’s “Sons & Daughters”, Universal’s “Blind Date” or in a host of commercials including “Foot Locker” and “Pringles”.

Perhaps you’ve heard him hosting on Sirius Satellite Radio’s “Blue Collar” channel or guest appearing on the “The Bob & Tom Show” nationally syndicated broadcast. Regardless of where he performs Saleem’s confident, clean and irreverent style places him firmly in the “Must see!” category of comedians today!

Nick Griffin started his stand up career in Kansas City at the age of nineteen. By the time he graduated from college three years later, he was working full time all across the country. He moved to New York City in 1990 cutting his teeth on midnight shows in Greenwich Village. He was poor and alone but getting funnier and funnier. Eventually he relocated to Los Angeles and quickly became a regular at the world famous Improv and The Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. During this time, he appeared on a handful of television shows including A and Eâ's An Evening at the Improv and Comedy on the Road. He also began writing for television. Nick was a staff writer on the Keenen Ivory Wayans Show in 1996. And later a head writer for the Bobby Slayton/Sue Murphy radio show. But his first love was always stand up comedy. In 1998 he was invited to take part in the New Faces show at The HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. That same year he made his network television debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, as well as Comedy Central's Premium Blend. Nick has made multiple appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman. Following his first appearance on the Late Show, Worldwide Pants signed Nick to a development deal that was set up at ABC. Nick has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. Last year he taped his own Comedy Central Presents, which aired in March. He now headlines America's best comedy clubs and is a regular guest on nationally syndicated radio's The Bob and Tom Show. Nick is still alone, but still getting funnier with each passing day. (Why screw up a good formula, right?) His comedy is personal, precise and powerful. It's true.

Recognized as one of the top comedians by comedy clubs across the country and hailed by critics as one of the sharpest and wittiest live performers in the business. Davidson’s material is packed with provocative witticisms and edgy undertones. He hits the stage with an instant likability and draws the audience in with his charm. He has the rare ability to put people at ease while interacting with an audience resulting in the Chicago Sun-Times to say “quick with the audience, …everybody laughed”. His confidence inspired the Indianapolis Star to say “A natural, …sexy”.

Dan Davidson recently had the pleasure of performing for the troops based in the Middle East on the Red, White and a little Bluer tour. He has appeared on Comedy Central – Short Attention Span Theater, Fox – A Night of Comedy. He has been a guest numerous times on the nationally syndicated The Bob and Tom Show and his material has been aired on satellite radio.  Davidson has worked with a wide range of performers such as David Alan Grier, Brett Butler, Bobby Slayton, Kevin Pollack, Bryan Callen and opened for musical acts such as The Counting Crows and The Wallflowers.

Davidson has sharpened his comedic timing and live performances through his 4,000 plus shows which keeps him in high demand.

He is a regular at The Improvs, Funny Bones, Catch A Rising Stars, Zanies and many other independent comedy clubs. He has made numerous appearances for charities, festivals, casinos and corporate groups.

Dan Davidson is a talent to be reckoned with.  In a relatively short time Dan has become a comedy club favorite across the country.  Since his humor wasn’t welcome at Purdue University, Dan decided to make his observational sarcasm work in his favor.  This shy boy mustered up the nerve to hit an open mic night at the local comedy club and his talent didn’t go unnoticed.  Shorltly thereafter, Dan won the regional Johnny Walker comedy competition and was doing stand-up full time.    His midwestern likeabliliy matched with his biting improvisational skills put him on the comedy world map.  Don’t mess with Double D.   He has also acted in several national commercials.  His compact disc has been played on satellite radio.  He has also written humorous articles in nationally magazines.
