Hugh Moore's comedy journey began on the streets of NY where he was raised by his parents, a poor farrier and coppersmith team collectively known as the metallics.
While performing on the NY comedy scene Moore, affectionately known as "Catwoman" was an immediate stand out. His low key, deadpan, yet regal demeanor enabled him to perform regularly at the premiere comedy club The Comic Strip. Moore honed his skills at the club nightly and he wrote daily.
Working for Vibe led to him wearing normal clothing and writing on other shows such as MTV's The Lyricist Lounge Show, Fox's The Best Damn Sports Show Period and head writer on MTV's Nick Cannon Presents: Wildnout. The show that entered MooreÂ’s name into the history books for being the lowest paid head writer in the history of television. Moore continues to perform standup all over the country.
His goals are to win an Emmy award and kick Tito Santana in the head.
If the adage is true — that tragedy plus time equals comedy — then Ryan Sickler has paid his dues on the left side of the equation. Born in Baltimore, Ryan lost his father when he was 16. After that, he bounced from one relative to another. And while his early years might have seemed rocky, that tumultuous childhood gave him both fodder for material and armor against the relentless onslaught that is life as a standup comic.
His television appearances include The Pete HolmesShow, Comedy Central’s Tosh.O, Live At Gotham, Cutman and The Late Late Show.
Beyond standup, Ryan Sickler is an engaging storyteller. You can catch him every Tuesday (Toozdee) on his podcast, The CrabFeast. Inspired by his hometown, the show celebrates the things Ryan loves most — storytelling, family, friends and laughter.
Pete Correale is one of the best comedians working today. Pete has made numerous appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Conan Obrien Show and The Tonight Show.

Plus a brand new one hour special on Showtime titled Let Me Tell Ya.
Pete’s success is directly correlated to his ability to dissect his life, whether talking about being a husband and father or the joy of ice cream; people laugh because they see their own lives through Pete. Simply put, Pete Correale performs his craft on a level very few comedians are working at today and he always delivers a knock out performance.
