“One of the most complex and exciting stand-ups working in America today. Like an idealistic hippy stuck inside the body of a testosterone-pumped US marine. He’s been likened to late great US comedians such as Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, but although he exhibits a similar brand of furious indignation, his observations and revelations are entirely his own. His angry, insightful act is an absorbing battle between his raw libertarian instincts and his refined liberal sensibilities.”
--William Cook, The Guardian

Born in Havana, Cuba and raised in North Bergen, NJ, Joey ‘Coco’ Diaz has quickly become one of the most sought after actors and comedians in the entertainment industry today. His love of storytelling is reflected in each role he takes: whether it is on film or on stage, his passion for entertaining and delighting audiences shines through every performance. This winter, Diaz can next be seen starring as ‘Mikey’ opposite Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Kevin Hart, and Kim Basinger in the highlyanticipated feature film “Grudge Match” (Warner Bros.). Diaz’s start in comedy began while serving a short stint at a correctional facility in Denver, CO in 1988. “Each Wednesday we would watch movies on the projector, but sometimes it would break,” he shares, “so I would get up and do stand up to fill the time.” Learning he had the skills to make an audience laugh, he pursued comedy after his release and began performing at an assortment of comedy clubs in the area. While he was touring as a working comic, he began acting in a variety television and film roles. You may recognize him from his appearances in “The Mentalist”, “Children’s Hospital”, “My Name is Earl”, or “General Hospital” - to name a few. On the film front, Diaz has held roles in “The Longest Yard”, “Spider Man 2”, “Smiley Face”, and “Taxi”, among others.
In 2013, Diaz continues to perform stand up and act, while also staying on top of the new media move in podcasting. Currently, Diaz hosts his bi-weekly podcast “The Church of What’s Happening Now,” which ranks among some of the most highly downloaded podcasts online. He is also a regular guest on Joe Rogan’s popular podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
On the comedy front, Diaz continues to tour and perform at the biggest comedy clubs in the country. His comedy specials in “The Testicle Testaments” have sold thousands of downloads, and have even made it to the Billboard Top 100. Diaz’s raw style of comedy is highlighted on television with recurring sketch roles on “Stand Up Revolution” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Later this year, Diaz will release his new DVD/CD special - which will surely top the charts once more.
Assad is writing this in third person so it sounds official and he can fool you into thinking he is way more important than he really is. If you’re reading this for any serious reason you should know right off the bat that you’re wasting your time. If you’ve reached this line in the bio, there is seriously something wrong with you because who really cares about Assad Motavasseli besides Assad Motavasseli?
Assad is a writer, producer, comedian but before all… a model. He is a California boy that was raised by a pack of wolves, and by wolves I mean hairy Persian parents. It wasn’t easy growing up as the only Middle Eastern kid in town. The other kids would eat PBJ’s while he was always stuck with smelly curry. It made his face look like this :( but he soon became the class clown because at an early age, he was trying to get laid.
Now in his mid 20’s Assad is one of the fastest growing comics in the world, but he still hasn’t gotten laid from his jokes, so he might quit soon.
I told you I have no idea why you're reading this...
Born in the Philippines, Bryan Callen spent the first fourteen years of his life overseas in countries like India, Pakistan, Lebanon, Greece and Saudi Arabia, before moving to the U.S. He went to high school in Massachusetts and earned his B.A. in History at the American University in Washington D.C.
Callen has spent the last 17 years in Los Angeles fighting traffic because that's where he seems to find the most work (Callen is also writing this but making it seem like someone ELSE is writing this by referring to himself in the 3rd person). Callen got his start as an original cast member of MAD TV. He then went on to play numerous roles on the small and big screen including, "Old School" "Bad Santa", "Sex and the City", “Entourage,” "Californication", “7th Heaven,” “King of Queens,” “Stacked,” “Las Vegas,” “West Wing,” “News Radio,” “Significant Others,” “CSI,” “NYPD Blue,” “Suddenly Susan,” and “Frasier.” He recently finished a two-season character arc on USA’s “In Plain Sight.”
Callen is not a famous actor but sometimes people look at him and scream "Bilson," since that's the character he played on several episodes of CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother.” His most recent TV role was Captain Frank Dashell, leader of the Undead Task Force, in the short-lived but critically acclaimed MTV comedy, "Death Valley." He has been recognized for that role exactly 4 times but who cares since he's been recognized over one million times (I'm guessing) as EDDIE, the Middle Eastern owner of a wedding chapel in a little movie called THE HANGOVER. Not to mention his role as Samir, in HANGOVER II where he played basically the same exact character only Samir had thick, curly, hair and darker skin which is actually a good look on Callen considering his Irish/Italian heritage has left him with a ruddy complexion and thinning, mouse-brown hair.
His most recent roles on the big screen were in the Lion's Gate drama WARRIOR and the 2014 feature film RIDE ALONG starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.
Between acting gigs Callen spends his time power lifting, taming lions, vanquishing evil and making people laugh as a stand up comic. That's why he can currently be seen on SHOWTIME performing a stand up comedy special called MAN CLASS.
Bobby Collins is always the funniest guy in the room. With more than 200 stand-up performances around the country each year, he is a show-business institution who has made millions laugh.
A native of New York, he was literally born into comedy when his father named him for his favorite comedian, Bob Hope. In the 1980s, Bobby left a lucrative position as vice president of Calvin Klein to pursue his dream and ended up working alongside such comedy legends as Jerry Seinfeld and Jay Leno. While other comics have left stand-up behind, Bobby has kept going, preferring the intimacy and energy he finds in live clubs, theaters and casinos.
The audience at a Bobby Collins show is half the fun. Many of Bobby’s enthusiastic fans have been following him for years and know by heart some of his classic bits (“…on the inside!”). But Bobby keeps it fresh with new observations based on everyday life and his travels around the country.
Over the years, he has hosted VH-1′s “Stand Up Spotlight”; toured with Cher, Julio Iglesias, Dolly Parton and Tony Bennett, among others; and released six comedy CDs, “On the Inside,” “Out of Bounds,” “You’re Not Coming With Us,” “Mr. New York,” “I Wanna Go Home” and most recently “I’m on the Boat.” His latest DVD, “Telling It Like It Is” is available on BobbyCollins.com and will be in-stores, on Amazon and on iTunes in February.
