Every month Skyler Stone (Raising Hope, Comedy Central's CON, Waiting, For Your Consideration) puts on an amazing evening of comedy and music. Except it is not what you might think. It isn't comedians going up and then musicians going up and doing their separate acts. NO! It is all integrated. Skyler only books comedians who use music in their acts (like Zach Galifianakis or Garfunkel & Oates) and comics who love to talk about music in their acts (think Brian Posehn ranting about metal music or Chris Porter gabbing about the Black Crowes).
"After selling out arenas around the world and setting attendance records globally with his Notorious World Tour; Russell Peters returns to his club roots as he starts working on new material for his next hilarious global conquest.
These shows are a work in progress, with a rare opportunity to see this global comedy rock star up close and personal.
Russell Peters latest stand-up special, Notorious was the first Exclusive Comedy Special for Netflix. His other specials, Outsourced, Red White and Brown and The Green Card Tour were also seen on Comedy Central, Showtime and Netflix."
B.J. Novak is an actor and writer best known for his work on the long- running and Emmy award-winning comedy, “The Office.” In addition to starring as Ryan, B.J. served as an executive producer of the series, as well as one of its most frequent writers and directors.
In film, he is widely known for his performances in Quentin Tarantino's “Inglourious Basterds” and Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” as well as appearances in “The Internship,” “Knocked Up,” and “Reign Over Me.” He will next be seen in the upcoming “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Acclaimed as a standup comedian, B.J. has performed frequently at colleges and theaters across the country since 2002. B.J.’s debut collection of fiction, One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories, was published by Knopf/Random House in February of 2014 to overwhelmingly positive reviews. Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times identified Novak as “a genuine storyteller with finely tuned emotional radar.” Jen Chaney of The Washington Post designated Novak as “a gifted observer of the human condition and a very funny writer capable of winning that rare thing: unselfconscious, insuppressible laughter.” Caryn James of The Daily Beast wrote: “It’s a sign of his freshness that reviews, most with extravagant praise, have strained for comparisons.” TIME Magazine distinguished One More Thing as a book “you won’t want to miss in 2014.” The collection was an immediate New York Times Best Seller, debuting at #4 on the Hardcover Fiction list. Novak’s first book for children, “The Book With No Pictures,” will be published by Dial/Penguin in fall of 2014.
