In the hard-hitting New York comedy world, D.C. Benny is a heavyweight contender. His unorthodox style of comedic story-telling, seasoned with original characters, has earned him a rabid fan base of all shapes, sizes, shades and ages over the last 26 years.

As an English major at the University of Maryland, he entered a talent show where he got big laughs doing impressions of all of his professors. He soon became a fixture at local comedy clubs in the D.C. area, before moving to Brooklyn NY.

Once in New York, he made a name for himself as a white comic who was happy to work the urban rooms in addition to performing at the mainstream comedy clubs.

Benny killed on his first tv appearance on Showtime At the Apollo and has since performed in all over the U.S. and toured internationally.

Many of his fans know him from his dramatic film and tv roles. He has been seen on multiple Law and Orders, had a long run on the soap As The World Turns, and has been in many feature films such as Freedomland with Samuel Jackson and John Singleton’s Illegal Tender.

He has also been in numerous national commercials for Verizon, Dell, Volkswagon, Wendy’s, and was the main character in the Budweiser “How You Doin’?” Superbowl spots.

His Comedy Central half hour is one of the highest rated in the networks history, and he was a top 8 finalist in season 8 of Last Comic Standing.

His weekly comedic story-telling show, Urban Myth, became an underground staple, where performers such as Dave Chapelle, Ben Bailey, Jim Gaffigan, Marc Maron, Jim Norton, and Colin Quinn would drop by and tell their true, funny, stories.

Benny still lives in Brooklyn with his wife and animals, where he works on his writing projects, fiddles around with old Land Rovers, and makes his own sauce.

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.

It was 1999, six years after finishing his collegiate basketball career at Division III Whitewater College, and bouncing around jobs that Kevin found himself in the real world with no real job skills and a strong desire to work an hour a day.  What to do?  Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Kevin decided to head over to nearby Madison, WI and try the “Open-Mic Night”.  “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and lets be honest I had nothing better going on”.

Thirteen years later Kevin is still going on-stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements.  “For an hour a night I’m wildly successful”.  With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country.  In 2000 he was the winner of the Midwest region of the HBO “Comedy Competition” and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist.  He performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” in 2003, and finished 2nd in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005.  He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010.  This past summer he co-starred in the Indie film “Flat Chested” starring Alicia Witt and Luke Perry.

Jeremy Essig loves the smell of clean clothes. He also likes his grilled cheese on either multi-grain or wheat bread. However, this is most likely not the information you were looking for.

Jeremy began his comedy career in the summer of 2000 after graduating from Wake Forest University. Choosing open-mic nights over graduate school, Jeremy began to develop an act that incorporated his interests in current events, music and religion, along with stories of personal failure. As a comedian, Jeremy offers a biting, hilarious look at our daily lives. Relevant material along with a sarcastic delivery have made him a favorite in clubs all over the country, and won him a spot in the 2003 Boston Comedy Festival. His ability to make people laugh at themselves and the illogical facets of our society makes for a very funny, refreshing performance.
