2013 is a huge year for Donnell Rawlings, in the fall you can see him starring in his own show as Judge Rawlings on MTV2’s Guy Court. Donnell will be back on MTV2’s Guy Code for another season as well. Donnell can be seen hosting Staann' Dup to be seen on StarzBlack. He lends his voice in a recurring role as “Another Cat Named Rally” on the hit animation Black Dynamite as well being featured in Adult Swim’s animation. Donnell continues to tour heavily, performing his intelligently bold stand-up throughout the US, Europe, and the Caribbean.
Donnell is an overnight success a decade in the making. He made a splash in the DC comedy clubs going from a heckler in the audience to HBO's Def Comedy Jam in a period of six months. You’ve seen him as 'Ashy Larry' on Comedy Central’s award winning and critically celebrated Chappelle’s Show, where he joined Dave Chappelle as both as a writer and performer. He will also be featured in Queen Latifah's new movie Percentage. His 1-Hour Stand-Up “Ashy to Classy” premiered on Comedy Central in October of 2010.
He was a co-host on both Power 105’s (NY’s #1 Hip Hop and R&B radio station) morning show “Egypt and Ashy in the Morning” and “The Big Tigger Morning Show” on WPGC in Washington DC, and he enjoyed weekly guest appearances on New York’s Hot 97 Morning Show. He was a regular on E!’s “Chelsea Lately", starred in Comedy Central's “Reality Bites Back,” and was the resident “Funny Guy” on the Ricki Lake Show. In 2007, Donnell co-created and starred in Heavy.com’s hit web series “From Ashy to Classy”, which was picked up for a second round of episodes. His movie of the same name
screened at the 2011 L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival.
As an actor Donnell has also appeared in the Law & Order series, Special Victims Unit (SVU) and Criminal Intent (CI) as well as NBC’s Third Watch, the Emmy-Award winning HBO Mini-Series: The Corner and as Day-Day Price on HBO’s Emmy-Award winning series “The Wire.” On the big screen he could be seen in the blockbuster Spider-Man II.
His rise to stardom may not have been “overnight”, but the journey itself has kept him edgy and relevant. Comedy's heavy hitters have noticed his talent with Neal Brennan, co- executive producer and co-head writer of Chappelle’s Show exclaiming “whenever we put Donnell in the game he’s going to hit a home run.” Jamie Foxx says, “That guy is a beast!” Wayne Brady commented that Donnell provides “amazing work on the show” and Dave Chappelle feels that “Donnell brings so much to the table...this very funny guy makes it look natural and easy.”
The favorite son of Baltimore, Erik Myers has been killing audiences with his fast-paced, high-energy comedy for the last few years. It really has to be seen in person to be believed (this isn't Erik writing this paragraph, by the way)--these are the kinds of jokes you'll try to pass off as your own when talking to your co-workers the next day, you bastard. The concepts (partying, women, family, weighing about 115 pounds soaking wet) are familiar, but no one does them with Erik's style. Erik has been a regular on the 98 Rock morning show in Baltimore. He has won stand-up competitions at the DC Improv, the Baltimore Improv and the Tampa Improv.
Matt Ralston grew up in Alaska, and went to college in Seattle. He currently resides in Los Angeles and does shows all over the place. Matt is skilled at going into hot tubs. He can stay in the hot tub for quite a while, and, even though he gets sweaty, he just continues sitting in the hot water. People sometimes become concerned that he's been in there too long, but it doesn't phaze him. Apart from that, Matt enjoys listening to pop songs and changing the words around to produce hilarious song parodies.
