Ocean Glapion:

Born in New Orleans, Ocean moved to Los Angeles at any early age. Growing up in L.A. he was influenced by the raw talent of such comics as Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor. Ocean went back to Louisiana to study theatre at Xavier University. He later returned to L.A., where he currently resides, to pursue a career in comedy and acting. Ocean is currently working nightly in the stand-up circuit, in addition to working on an untitled independent film, the Comedy Playground pilot, and a series of commercials for Match.com.

Auggie Smith:

At the age of 19, Auggie Smith moved from Billings, Montana to Portland, Oregon to pursue a carreer in stand up comedy. After a few years of toil and struggle, he first achieved acclaim by winning the 1994 Sam Adams Comedy Contest, who’s prizes earned him his first national exposure on the television show Evening At the Improv. Auggie truly found his comedy voice in 1997, when he placed second in the Seattle Comedy Competition to legendary comic Mitch Hedberg. This earned him an invitation to the 1998 Montreal Comedy Festival, where he performed a remarkable 12 shows, including New Faces, Danger Zone and The Nasty Show. 

Keeping a continuous road schedule of clubs across the nation, Auggie introduced himself to a new legion of fans in January of 2004, with a now legendary appearance on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show. The morning was a mix of signature rants and brilliant improv highlighting his sharp point-of-view. His outstanding debut has become one their most replayed treasures. 

This led to performing in theaters acroos the country on the very popular Bob & Tom Comedy Tour, where audiences quickly became aware that the only thing better then listening to Auggie on the radio was sharing the energy he creates in his live performance. 

In 2006, Auggie shot national TV performances for Comedy Centrals Bob & Tom All Stars, and Live at Gotham, where he was put in the honored status of headlining the first episode.

In 2007, Auggie made a brief but very memorable appearance on Last Comic Standing.

In 2008,, Auggie was invited to perform at the Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival, where he was voted Club Comic of the Year by club owners.

Auggie is the star of his own CD and DVD titled Cult Following. His comedy rants are on heavy rotation on both XM and Sirius satellite radio, and can be seen on several popular youtube videos, but none of these compare with seeing his live performance.

When Auggie takes the stage, audiences across the country quickly realize that they’re in for an evening of riveting, take-no-prisoners stand-up comedy. During Auggie’s set, pop culture and political targets are dissected piece by piece into intelligently written manic rants. His seamless rapid fire style has developed a loyal following across the country. He has spent most of the last two decades keeping a constant road schedule honing his craft and creating a truly memorable, relevant, and constantly evolving live experience.
