  • Sklar Brothers

    Sklar Brothers

    Randy and Jason Sklar began as one zygote and later guest starred in many TV shows, including an Emmy Award winning episode of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, the FX hit “It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, as well as Adult Swim’s Childrens’ Hospital. They starred as conjoined twins in a memorable episode of Grey's Anatomy and as warring agents on HBO's Entourage. Of the Entourage episode, Entertainment Weekly television critic Paul Katz wrote of their turn, “in the hands of comedic masters, The Sklar Brothers, they made it soar.” They’ve also appeared in such films as Touchstone's, Wild Hogs, and Fox Atomic's, The Comebacks. They currently host the critically acclaimed History Channel docucomedy
    that highlights the ways in which statistics tell the story of America called The United Stats of America. In November of 2006, Randy and Jason wrapped their 4th and final season of their cult classic comedy series, Cheap Seats on ESPN Classic. They also wrote and appeared in a regular segment on ESPN's SportsCenter called, “The Bracket” from 2008 to 2009. In addition they regularly fill in as guest hosts for Jim Rome on his popular nationally syndicated radio show.
    As stand up comedians, they recorded their second half hour Comedy Central Presents in November 2009 and it premiered in March of 2010. The Onion A.V. Club named their latest comedy CD
    Hendersons And Daughters in their Top 10 Comedy albums of 2011.
    And Neil Strausse of the New York Times said of the Sklars, “Their
    comedy accepts the reality of being twins but does not use it as a
    crutch. Instead," noted Strauss, "they work with their physical and
    mental similarities and correspondences, their status as imperfect
    carbon copies of each other. In their comedy, the straight man is often
    an echo."
    Randy and Jason currently reside in Los Angeles, where they record
    their popular weekly sports comedy podcasts Sklarbro Country and
    Sklarbro County for earwolf.com.

  • Perry Strong

    Perry Strong

     

     

    Perry Strong is an up and coming comedy talent inspired by the highs, lows and flows of New York City life, from the perspective of a native and denizen.  His raw, daring observations about experiences with relationships, women and substance abuse hit both above the belt and well below.  His humor, performed regularly at clubs in NYC and Los Angeles, have earned him a reputation as an edgy, “bewitching” performer inducing even skeptical adult audiences into laughter.

    A charismatic stage presence, it’s easy to forget that Perry has been formally performing for less than four years.  He honed his standup as a regular within the NYC circuit, locally headlining Gotham Comedy Club, The Stand NYC and the Greenwich Village Comedy Club.  Regionally, Perry has headlined at Joker’s Wild in New Haven, CT.  Breaking out of his immediate home area, Perry has also successfully taken his brand of humor to the Cape Fear Comedy Festival in Wilmington, NC and Comedy with Hannibal Burress At The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY.

    Equally comfortable on-screen, Perry is a natural actor and commentator.  His praise and skewering of pop star beauty and reputation fueled television credits that include 2012 appearances in three episodes of  Vh1′s 100 Greatest Women In Music, as well as March 2013 appearances in all five episodes of Vh1′s 100 Sexiest Music Artists.  Perry was featured in a spoof commercial on on TruTv’s World’s Smartest Inventions.  In the last year, he has co-starred in the in the short film “You Good!” which screened at the Friar’s Club Comedy Film Festival and The LA Comedy Festival.  Perry’s newest short film, “The Stick,” has just completed post production and is being submitted to film festivals around the country.

    From behind a camera, Perry has enjoyed a ten year career as a freelance media professional; camera operating, producing, editing and directing everything from short films and commercials to reality television and EPK’s.  In addition to co-starring, he also produced and edited “You Good!” as well as “The Stick.”  Perry’s backstage maturity has also taken him into show promotion and management, evidenced by his 2013 “Dirty Thursdays” shows at The Stand NYC, mentioned in the “NSFW” section of Time Out NY Magazine (9/5 issue) and The ForgetMeNot Comedy Tour.

  • Jeffrey Baldinger

    Jeffrey Baldinger

    Born and raised on the mean streets of St. Paul, Minnesota, Jeffrey Baldinger discovered his love for comedy at a young age, admiring the likes of Rodney Dangerfield and Andy Kaufman. But after moving from Minnesota to Israel, to Kansas, to Australia, to Kansas again, and then to Minnesota again, he ultimately found his calling at an open mic on the east side of Los Angeles.

    Since beginning his stand up career, Jeffrey has used his quick wit and goofy attitude about life to become a favorite amongst crowds and fellow comedians alike. He has appeared on The Outsourced (2010), The Playboy Comedy Tour (2011-12), and has been featured on Louie Anderson's LOL show in Las Vegas. He is also the creator and producer of the Hollywood Improv's most successful monthly show, Flyover Comedy.

    Jeffrey has been featured on the websites Youtube, Break.com and FunnyorDie.com, and has made appearances on Showtime's Dexter, ABC's Happy Endings, and NBC's Community. Most recently, Jeffrey appeared as a panelist on HDnet's "AXS Live Super Bowl Show."

    Jeffrey is a regular on one of the biggest college comedy shows in the USA, Comedy Juice, and he can be seen most nights performing at the World Famous Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and the Hollywood Improv. Jeffrey does not like writing in the third person, but has decided it to be the best way to write his bio...for the time being

     

  • David Koechner

    David Koechner

     Though he would remain one of the comedy world's best-kept secrets through the later half of the 1990s, improvisational comic-turned-actor David Koechner later made a successful transition from SNL and Late Night With Conan O'Brien funnyman to supporting feature player roles when word of his talent spread, thanks to stellar supporting parts in such wide-release films as A_Guy_Thing and Anchorman. The Tipton, MO, native studied political science at the University of Missouri, with a subsequent career in the family business (manufacturing turkey coops) narrowly averted by a post-college move to Chicago. It was there that Koechner attempted to master his comic skills under the tutelage of improv master Del_Close, with further studies at the Windy City's ImprovOlympic cementing the skills of the up-and-coming talent. A subsequent stint at Chicago's Second City Theater led to Koechner's lucky break when he was whisked away by SNL creator Lorne_Michaels to become a player in the long-running weekly comedy mainstay. Though he would remain with SNL for merely one season, Koechner continued to impress on the small screen as a performer on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in the 1996-1997 season. As his reputation continued to grow due to appearances on such popular shows as Mad_About_You and Dharma & Greg, Koechner also made an impression in features thanks to small but memorable roles in Austin_Powers:_The_Spy_Who_Shagged_Me, Man on the Moon, and My_Boss's_Daughter. Though he would continue to work in minor capacity on the small screen, Koechner seemed to be focusing on features at this point in his career, with a turn as a chauvinistic sportscaster in the 2004 Will_Ferrell comedy Anchorman offering what was perhaps his most substantial feature performance to date.
