Adam Tod Brown:  Adam Tod Brown is an editor and columnist at Cracked.com. He believes he can fly. He believes he can punch the sky. You have seen his work on websites all across this great land (Cracked.com, Playboy.com, The Smoking Jacket.com) and slightly fewer comedy clubs (Westside Comedy Theater in Santa Monica, The Stand in NYC, a shitty open mic in Santa Rosa). 

Ben Blanchard: Ben Blanchard is a distracted writer, soulful lover, single child of divorced parents, living in Santa Monica. He's good at honesty, but better at lying. He often ponders if he will ever discover truth. If he was granted one wish, it would be to make chocolate chip cookies nutritious. He can be found posing with strange Southern tourists doing his best Sacha Baron Cohen impersonation. He doesn't have a type, but after a few drinks he'll admit "women". He loves reggae music and isn't ashamed to burn Babylon down. When he isn't writing comedy, he's scouring the web for the latest conspiracy theories. He's pooped his pants in his adult life and is a recovering pre-mature ejaculator, but does relapse periodically...One day at a time...  

Danny Lobell:  Internationally known, Danny Lobell launched his comedy career 8 years ago. In that time Danny has made an impact on all levels of comedy from headlining clubs around the world, to writing for network TV and dabbling in publishing. Danny has done it all. Danny’s wildly popular radio show heard locally on in NYC's WBMB 87.9 FM has played host to some of the best names in both the comedy and entertainment business. Danny’s ability as an expert interviewer and instinctual leading man makes him one of the best radio personalities working today. The award winning Danny Lobell Show has earned him the respect of industry magazines and has been featured in the New York Times and MySpace Comedy. Danny’s work in radio doesn’t end there. He is a regular guest on Sirius/XM Raw Dog Comedy network, the Jim Breuer Show, and serves as a correspondent for WSNR in Chicago. Danny’s performances overseas have left an impression on the rest of the world, prompting accolades from Scotland’s largest newspaper, The Scotsman. Danny has performed at the Glasgow Comedy Festival and has graced the stage of legendary clubs such as The Stand (Glasgow, Edinburgh), The Slaughter House and Comedy Hell in Liverpool and Le Comedy Club in Paris. Over the last two years Danny has contributed to both the Colbert Report and the Daily Show on Comedy Central. Recently he wrote and directed four episodes of Will Talk on Jamaica’s Tempo TV and has written for AOL’s Ray Ellin Show. Danny has enjoyed success on the screen too, with the popular web series Rise of the Radio Show and co-starring opposite Rick Shapiro in the cult-indie film Show Stoppers. Danny has performed at the Boston and Long Island Comedy Festivals and can be seen all over New York City. When he’s not working Danny likes to unwind at his home in Brooklyn with his pittbull, rooster and chicken.

David Huntsberger: David Huntsberger was born and raised in Reno, Nevada. He attended Colorado State University and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. After college, he moved to San Diego and worked as a substitute teacher during the day while doing stand-up at night. Two years later, he moved to Austin, Texas where he was noticed by Comedy Central and asked to appear on season nine of Premium Blend. In 2006, he was runner-up in the annual Funniest Person in Austin Contest. He also reached the semifinals on season four of Last Comic Standing. David regularly opens for Nick Swardson and Doug Benson and has worked with Paul F. Tompkins, Maria Bamford, Eddie Gossling, Tig Notaro and Patton Oswalt. In 2009, he performed at the Bentzen Ball comedy festival in Washington, D.C. In his free time, he likes drawing and fly fishing.

Maria Shehata: Egyptian-American comedian Maria Shehata’s sharp and original stand-up, combined with her quick-wit and crowd pleasing conversational delivery has brought her appearances in NY’s Arab-American Comedy Festival, the New York Underground Comedy Festival, The Los Angeles Middle Eastern Comedy Festival, as well as on Comedy Central’s The Watch List, Women’s Entertainment Network and numerous guest appearances on Sirius Satellite Radio. Maria has published essays all over the world, from the Italian magazine Stripped Stories to Kuwait’s Bazaar. Her comedy has taken her from suburban life in Columbus, Ohio, to New York City and now Los Angeles, where she brings to the stage a point of view that is unique, hilarious, and yet still universal. Watch out for Maria on Showtime’s Bridging the Gap to air June 2010!

Nate Bargatze: Nate Bargatze is a comedian, born and raised in Old Hickory,TN. He grew up watching his Father who is a world class magician and decided to follow his footsteps in the entertainment business. Since he made his television debut on CMT Comedy Stage in 2007, he has had two appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, performed on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, and at the 2008 Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival in the ‘New Faces’ category receiving critical acclaim in the Hollywood Reporter. Nate wrote for the Video Game Awards as well. Nate recently returned from his second tour in Iraq performing for the troops in Baghdad. He continues to keep the momentum going working every night in New York City comedy clubs when he is not on the road. Just recently Nate filmed his first Comedy Central Presents special which will air in 2011. Also was recently crowned 2010's New York's Funniest Comedian at The New York Comedy Festival
