Myq Kaplan is a comedian named Myq Kaplan (pronounced “Mike Kaplan” when done correctly or however you like, he’s not picky). The Comedians magazine calls him “a comedy machine, in the best possible way. The way that some machines vend soda or prevent other machines from killing future revolutionaries – that’s how Myq Kaplan does comedy: relentlessly, methodically, unblinkingly.” Myq just made his debut on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,” and his half-hour “Comedy Central Presents” special will appear in 2010 (a year for which Punchline Magazine says to watch out for Myq). He has also appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” at the New Faces show of the 2009 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, was voted 2008’s Best Local Comedian in the Boston Phoenix, and won the 2009 NY’s Funniest Standup Competition. A Jewy-ish vegan atheist who spells the name “Mike” weird, Myq enjoys words, social justice, Netflix, and comic books. Also non-comic books, ping-pong, and being great with women. And grammar and run-on sentence fragments. And of course, being hilarious to his demographic, which is anyone who might know the word “demographic.”

Raised in the urban city of Compton, California, Richard Villa always knew he wanted to make people laugh. After completing a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering, Richard felt there was something more out there in stored for him. While driving home one night, the neon lights of the Irvine Improv called his name. Hey Richard!
Seizing the moment of amateur night, Richard grabbed the microphone, went on stage, and has not stopped since. Using stories of his childhood, Richard Villa turned what he thought were basic experiences into autobiographical satirical humor that depict life for Latinos and other minorities in the United States. Amid his newfound talent in improvisation, Richard was accepted to The Groundlings Theatre Group.
With his comedy and thorough understanding of his audience, Richard Villa became the first Latino to ever host the renowned Hollywood Improv on Friday nights. Sharing the stage with various other talent such as Jeff Garcia, Carlos Mancilla, Gabriel Iglesia, Mike Epps, Orlando Jones and Dat Phan, Richard Villa quickly took over co-host duties at the Ha-Ha in North Hollywood, and the Ontario and Brea Improv.
His ability to appeal to the audience earned him a special invitation by the U.S. Military to perform for the troops on the Combat Comedy Tour which included Iraq, Unit, May, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, Djibouti, and Saudi Arabia.
In 2005 Vanguard Cinema released Richards 1st DVD, called
Richard Villa: Performing This Way.
Now being hailed as the leader for the new generation of Latino Comics, Richard Villa exemplifies dedication to making other people laugh. With his television appearances on Mun2s Loco Comedy Jam, HBO Latino and Los Angeles based LATV, Richard Villa has turned his talent into animation, becoming a writer and voiceover for MTVs Latin animation, Chico y Guapo.
In a personal project, Richard Villa is aiming at introducing his audience to Border Patrol Tales, a sketch comedy show depicting the social impact and influence of immigrants in the United States.

It all began in Cleveland, Ohio, where Rob made his stand-up debut at a high school talent show and later won the city’s largest comedy competition. While attending Boston University on an academic scholarship, he became a finalist in the 2005 Boston Comedy Festival and retired any notions of a “normal career.” With his youthful point-of-view making him a favorite at three NACA conferences, Rob now headlines colleges across the country. He booked 27 colleges out of NACA Northeast (2007) alone. Residing in New York, he also enjoys playing in a comedian basketball league and performing sketch comedy with his group The Straightmen.
Jacob Sirof was born and raised in San Francisco, California during the "Comedy Boom" of the 1980's.
There were few places more booming than San Francisco, so nobody was too surprised when Jacob announced at an early age that he wanted to be a comedian when he grew up. Today, Jacob still hasn't grown up, although he is a comedian. As a young adult, he started doing stand-up in his hometown, and quickly joined the ranks of a promising young crop of local talent, which has since been dubbed "The New Wave" of San Francisco comedy. In 2006, Jacob was selected to perform at the prestigious "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Montreal, Canada, where he got very drunk and high with comedians and industry-types from all over the world.
His television appearances include "Live At Gotham" on Comedy Central and "Down and Dirty With Jim Norton" on HBO. He has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as the Hollywood Reporter, and performs across much of the known galaxy. Jacob currently resides in Santa Monica, California with his wife, fellow comic Sherry Sirof, and their daughter, Wynter Moon.
He would like to do comedy for ever and ever, yet he is a mere mortal, and will most likely die someday.
