Chad Zumock

The self-proclaimed leader of the Sweater Vest Army burst onto the stand-up comedy scene in Los Angeles in the summer of 2004 and hasn't looked back. His famous trademark outerwear has gotten him national recognition, and even publicly acknowledged by former Ohio State head football coach and original Sweater Vest wearer Jim Tressel.

 

Chad Zumock is a proud 2.4 GPA General Studies graduate out of Kent State University, the same University that produced famous comedians such as Arsenio Hall, Steve Harvey, and Drew Carey. He captivates audiences with his high energy humor, brutal honesty about his life, and quick slacker wit. His likability is what connects him with all kinds of people and makes him a strong draw for all over the country, and also a strong social media presence. 

 

His stand-up comedy has led him to appearances on Comedy Central, Spike TV, Showtime, E!, AXS TV, Gotham Comedy Live, HBO Lab, The Artie Lange Show, numerous low-budget commercials, and even a writing spot on the 2006 Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner. In 2015 he released his Top 20 iTunes ranked comedy album “Reckless Operation” which also can be heard on Sirius XM Raw Dog, Slacker, and Pandora Radio. Although Chad has accomplished a lot in stand-up comedy, he still doesn’t not consider himself a comedian. He claims to be a basketball player that tells jokes. Chad is currently averaged six points a game in his Men’s YMCA basketball league that plays on Monday nights.

 

For Cleveland and Northeast audiences Chad was an everyday voice on the legendary 100.7 WMMS for over three years, taking his drive-time talk radio slot to number one in several key demographics. He was also correspondent for Tailgate 19 CBS during the 2011 Cleveland Browns season and the host of the short lived “That’s Cleveland” on Fox Sports. Chad was also honored by the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers franchise in 2012 with "Sweater Vest Night,” which was his biggest honor to date considering this was his favorite childhood sports team. This led to appearances on ESPN’s Sportcenter and Fox Sports. In 2011, Zumock returned to his former Alma Mater and served as Grand Marshall for the Kent State Homecoming Parade after Drew Carey cancelled. This made him the very first seven-year General Studies major to ever hold this honor in Kent State’s history.

 

Chad can sometimes be heard guest hosting the nationally syndicated legendary radio program, “The Bob & Tom Show" on radio station WFBQ our of Indianapolis, Indiana and regular guest on BENNINGTON on Raw Dog Comedy Hits 99

 

He hopes his stand-up comedy will one day lead him to his dream job of being in 'The Beastie Boys," replacing the late, great Adam "MCA" Yauch R.I.P. 

 

Chad is also single and loves the 80’s attack helicopter television show “Airwolf”

Orny Adams

American comic Orny Adams first rose to international prominence after co-starring in Jerry Seinfeld’s documentary “Comedian.” He has made several appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman. In 2010, Orny followed up his critically acclaimed debut comedy DVD/CD “Path Of Most Resistance,” with a powerful and poignant one hour special “Orny Adams Takes The Third” which aired on Comedy Central. Currently, Orny can be seen playing the iconic role “Coach Finstock” on the hit MTV show “Teen Wolf,” a one hour drama created by Criminal Mind’s Jeff Davis. Jeff handpicked Orny for the role after seeing him at the Hollywood Improv.
 
Early in his career Orny was named in The Hollywood Reporter as a favorite comedian to watch. He has written jokes for Jay Leno, Garry Shandling, and many other top comedians. He has twice written for the Annual Emmys Broadcast and has become the “go to” guy when a celebrity needs a funny line. In July 2000, Orny made quite an impact at the Montreal Comedy Festival, which resulted in a development deal with Warner Brothers Studio, and his appearance on Letterman. In 2010, Orny was thrilled to return to the festival in Montreal working alongside one of his favorite comedians Steve Martin on a taped televised stand up show Martin hosted. Orny garnered rave reviews for his performance and was called a “Stand-out act” by The Hollywood Reporter.
 
Other notable projects include a talk show pilot developed for Orny by CBS Television Distribution/Kingworld along side Ashton Kutcher’s Katalyst Films. Orny shot another pilot for his own late night talk show for TBS and taped his own series, “Modern Chaos with Orny Adams” for The Discovery Channel. He hosted his own show on Discovery’s Travel Channel, has appeared on Jiminy Glick, Tough Crowd on Comedy Central, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Last Call With Carson Daly, and did a regular segment on Hollywood and politics on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. You may also recognize him from other notable television appearances and many of his national commercials, including Coca-Cola. Orny made his first TV appearance in 1996 on Friday Night Videos.

When not performing stand-up, Orny spends his days writing, penning scripts, and developing television shows. A few years back, he struck a deal with Endimol for “The Pitch,” a reality show he conceived.
 
But none of this matters until you see Orny live where he is at his best, deconstructing the chaos of the modern world and getting worked up about things that most people just accept. His tour has reached clubs, theatres, even the Staples Center in LA, colleges, corporate events, and festivals as far away as Ireland, Australia, and South Africa. Orny’s comedy style is unique, yet universally appealing. Orny is quick on his feet to deliver a powerful, clever, sophisticated, and fast paced routine that attacks topics from an angle that many people have never considered.

What some people have said: “I'm a big Orny Adams fan.”
 -- Jerry Seinfeld
 
“I thought this CD was hilarious. Then Orny told me it was a DVD. Well, to see his facial expressions made it even funnier. Either way, he kicks ass.”
-- Garry Shandling
 
“You judge a comedian by the laughs he gets and the laughs on this CD are huge...shattering. Orny reminds me of Joe Frazier working the ribcage."
-- Dennis Miller
 
“There’s a growing group of people who have known that Orny is a great comic thinker and performer. We search out his stuff on the internet, we go to his shows, we send emails around with things he’s said. It’s like we discovered Bob Dylan early and everyone else is just about to.”
-- Bestselling author Gavin de Becker
