Ryan Stout is a well-crafted and seasoned comedian who has performed all over the world. A regular guest on CHELSEA LATELY, Ryan has also appeared on CONAN, Comedy Central’s LIVEAT GOTHAM, and his own half-hour special: COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS… RYAN STOUT. While still in college, Stout was already performing over 300 shows per year when, at age 22, he won the Boston International Comedy Festival's stand-up comedy competition. He went on to perform at HBO’s The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festivalin Aspen, the prestigious Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal, and the very hip SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. Within six months of moving to Los Angeles, he booked his first pilot, hosting a game show for MTV. That project established him as a go-to host for any occasion and over the next few years MTV booked Ryan to host nearly 50 pilots, specials, and episodes of random television. He even hosted the iconic MTV SPRING BREAK. In December 2011, his debut comedy album, Touché, was released by Comedy Central Records and reached #7 on the iTunes comedy charts. Currently, Ryan Stout can be seen every Monday thru Thursday on AXS TV, hosting the network’s one-hour flagship show, AXS Live.
Kevin Brennan was born in Chicago, Illinois to Charles and Ethel Brennan (his parents requested that we not use their real names to protect their identities). Brennan (although I'm writing this myself I'm using the 3rd person to pretend I paid a fancy publicist to do it) is one of the country's top comedians. He was voted "Best Comedian" at the 2005 Aspen Comedy Festival which led to him taping his own HBO half-hour comedy special. Brennan started his career in Chicago but soon relocated to New York City to pursue his dream of being on the "Late Show with David Letterman." He nailed his first Letterman set which led to bookings on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "Last Call with Carson Daly." Brennan is a former writer/performer on "Saturday Night Live." He recently taped a pilot for NBC called "Number One Son." Kevin is one of ten children and became a stand-up comedian because he didn't get enough attention as a child
Comedian and writer, Gene Pompa's television credits include regular appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," on NBC and a handful of appearances on "The Late, Late Show" on CBS. Other credits include Comedy Central, HBO, Que Locos on Galavision, Showtime's "Latino Laugh Festival," and "In Living Color" on FOX, and Si TV! Gene co-starred in Paul Rodriguez' "Comedy Rehab" in May, 2009.
Gene has completed two half-hour solo stand-up specials, "Pompalicious" for Comedy Central and a self-titled half-hour stand-up special for SI! TV, both airing regularly in rotation.
Gene's offbeat perspective plays extremely well with college age audiences and crosses all racial and ethnic lines. He headlines regularly at the Improvs in Hollywood, Irvine, Brea and Ontario and across the country, doing a stand-up show with great social relevance and irrelevance.
Gene was born in East Los Angeles and raised in the working-class suburbs of Southern California. He's been a Mexican-American for most of his life, except for a few years during the 70's, when he was a "practicing Chicano." As a product of the multi-ethnic suburbs of Los Angeles, Gene was inspired to utilize universal themes in his stand-up and his writing.
