J Chris Newberg is funny. Ask him. He will disagree, but in a way that is probably humorous. He has performed on America’s Got Talent, but lost to dancers that sparkle. He has also been on the Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live & Comedy Central. He has toured nationally in arenas with Dane Cook, Internationally in Stadiums with Russell Peters and written songs for American Idol. He is in fact the funniest person that you have never heard of. Yet. Cedric The Entertainer agrees saying, “He has got an odd sense of humor and he is unique in his point of view. His quirkiness and his own kind of demeanor are things that can go a long way in this business. Talented folks will see it, and the industry will see it.” J Chris Newberg also writes jokes, a lot of them. Some of your favorite comedians have used his jokes on SNL, Late Night With David Letterman, Chelsea Lately and The Conan O’Brien show. J Chris Newberg recently finished being lead writer on Idiotest for GSN and is currently writing at E! He doesn’t ask you to think. He’ll do that for you. Just watch and listen and then tweet your friends and pretend you wrote it.
Hailing from the glamorous streets of Hollywood, CA, Clownvis Presley has accomplished more in the past few years than most entertainers achieve in their whole careers. In addition to hosting his own monthly variety show and MCing countless events, his charisma, quick wit, and superior singing voice have earned him opening slots on quite a few high-profile shows. He has toured extensively and performed with superstars such as Little Richard, Neil Hamburger, the Dresden Dolls, Jewel, and The Goo Goo Dolls to name a few -- all of which has earned him the title "King of Clowns."
Thanks to a controversial appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent, Clownvis is now familiar to millions of people around the planet. His phenomenal audition must be seen to be believed (maybe even more than once). Clownvis also made a hilarious appearance on BET's Judge Karen's Court in 2010.
The King of Clowns is a staple of the current Los Angeles comedy and music scene. Much more than just a party clown, this showman does it all. In addition to hosting music awards, festivals, fundraisers and burlesque revues, Clownvis is also a good guy, donating his talents to charity events and non-profit organizations.
Awkward Kids was born in the year 2007 in direct response to Arnold Shwarzenegger's hit film "Kindergarten Cop". Christiann and Dana were living together at the time and realized Michelle was the perfect combination of 'white girl with a zest for 90's R&B', so they decided she had to become a part of the crew.
The three girls were chillin' one day, when they realized sketch comedy was the best way to express that boobs are indeed funny. So the three girls wrote their very first sketch, Manhands: A Revolutionary New Product. Thanks to Kyle's direction and his amazing taste for 80's tank tops, the video was a huge success. Adam "Baby Newch" Newacheck and his wife Haley Pikhart rounded out the crew for that first shoot. As time progressed, Carly Kennelly became a permanent part of the directorial process when she helped out with "Penis Complimenters"; Carly's feminine touch behind the camera (and her gorgeous blond locks) have been indispensable ever since.
The girls soon faced the fact that becoming nerdy Internet comedians wasn't easy, but once the realization hit that they could cast hot guys in their videos, the girls threw caution to the wind and started shooting videos once month. Once friends and family took notice of the sheer stupidity of their sketches, the Kids became encouraged to make more ridiculous videos with friends such as Mike Nelson from Dry Hump Comedy and other fabulous actor friends who had no idea what they were getting themselves into.
After producing 30 videos, three live shows, and writing a pilot as well as a screenplay, the ladies have decided to continue their journey into becoming the silliest women on the Internet. Now please enjoy this photo of them in spandex and white stars on their eyes.
