  • Joe Rogan

    Joe Rogan

    “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
     
    A standup comedian for more than 20 years, Joe Rogan sells out theaters internationally with his inquisitive and intense comedic style.  His third hour comedy special “Joe Rogan: Live from the Tabernacle” was released in December 2012 via his website.  Rogan previously starred in two hour long specials, “Talking Monkeys in Space” (2009) now available on CD & DVD and “Joe Rogan Live” (2007) now available on DVD, and released the CD’s “Shiny Happy Jihad” (2007) and “I’m Gonna Be Dead Someday” (2000).
     
    Rogan is host of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” a twice-weekly long form conversation with guests that is one of the most popular comedy podcasts on iTunes.  Fans can watch the podcast on Ustream and the podcast can also be heard on Sirius XM’s “The Virus” channel on Saturdays at Noon ET and Sundays at 5:00 AM and 6:00 PM ET.
     
    Since 2002, Rogan has provided color commentary for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) on Pay Per View, Spike Television and now on FOX.  Rogan’s passion for MMA began with martial arts practice at the age of 13.  Within two years, the Boston native earned a black belt and soon became the

    Joey Coco Diaz

     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 highly
    anticipated 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.

    Jeff Richards joined the cast of Saturday Night Live as a Featured Player in September 2001. Jeff comes to SNL after touring the country doing stand-up comedy and impressions.

     

    Growing up in Walnut Creek, California a suburb of San Francisco, Jeff excelled in both football and baseball. When a knee injury forced him off the field in his senior year of high school, he focused on public access television. His show "Hanson Live" put Jeff in front of and behind the camera for the first time. After graduating high school, Jeff hosted a morning show radio and created a sketch comedy show that also appeared on public access TV in the bay area. In 1996 he began attending the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill. There he joined the Chapel Hill Improv Players (CHIPS) where he performed live comedy for the first time. Friends, family and teachers encouraged Jeff to unitize his gifts of impersonation as a stand up comedian. Jeff soon began hosting shows at Charlie Goodnights in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    In late 1997, Jeff moved to Los Angeles to pursue comedy as a career. He soon became a regular at the world famous Comedy Store and appeared in several local and nationwide commercials. He began touring comedy clubs across the country. In 2000 Jeff briefly joined the cast of Fox¹s MAD TV, appearing most memorably as David Letterman. In 2001, Jeff performed on CBS Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn and NBC¹s Late Friday. His performance on Late Friday caught the attention of Saturday Night Live who invited him to audition and then to become a feature player for the 27th season of the show.

    Jeff¹s high-energy stand-up is a mix of his-growing arsenal of impressions (including Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, Louie Anderson, Kevin Spacey, Gary Shandling, Charlie Rose, Don Imus, Dustin Hoffman, and Ozzy Osborne) and outrageous original characters (including the "knife guy", the "drunk girlfriend," her "jealous boyfriend" and the "jock/meathead" from every 80¹s teen movie).
