  • Dwayne Perkins

    Dwayne Perkins

    Brooklyn Native, Dwayne Perkins is a young vet in the Comedy game. With appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show, and Premium Blend, Dwayne has earned a spot in today’s class of elite Stand-up Comics. Dwayne is a regular crowd pleaser in New York, Boston and Los Angeles. The recent culmination of Dwayne’s talent and work has resulted in his very own Comedy Central Presents half hour special. The very well received special showcases Dwayne’s unique way of looking at life and unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner. In many ways still a newbie himself, Dwayne is already inspiring newer comics. With his comedy well grounded and still growing, Dwayne now sets his sights on acting and writing. Look for Dwayne in the HBO movie The Gristle, but don’t look away or you might miss him. Still, Dwayne offers a very memorable cameo as the lost “stereotype” in the bar scene. Catch Dwayne on The Learning Channel teaching a Seattle fireman a thing or two about comedy on the show Faking It. Dwayne’s comedic instincts and acting skill shine through in the soon to be released independent film Target Audience 9.1. In a movie rich with talent, where Breakfast Club meets Night of the Last Comet, Dwayne offers much comic relief as the funny likeable geek. Lastly, don’t Tivo out those commercials as you never know when Dwayne will pop up in an ad pushing products for The Man.

    Jesse Joyce

    # * Jesse Joyce started his comedy career in Pittsburgh in 1998. In 2001 he made the move to New York City and since then has been making a name for himself in cities and countries you’ve heard of as one of the hottest young comics working today. He attributes his comic instincts to growing up with his entertaining family. By following the example of his Uncle Michael, a former clown in the Ringling Bros.& Barnum and Bailey Circus and his great uncles, founders of the International Juggling Association, Joyce developed his own unique brand of comic charisma without throwing or balancing stuff or getting in or out of a tiny car. Jesse has been seen on the inaugural season of Comedy Central’s Live At Gotham, and his Live At Gotham segment on Comedy Central’s website remains in the top most watched clip for the season. In addition he has filmed Weekly Evil segments for The Root of All Evil also for the Comedy Central website. Throughout 2007 Jesse was invited to be part of the Comedy Central on Campus College Tour. He’s appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’s “Pass The Mic” segment. He’s been the host of AMC’s Date Night, a regular guest on RedEye on FOXNews, as well as appearing on Entertainment Tonight, and Lifetime. He was a contributing writer for Comedy Central’s Roasts of Joan Rivers, Larry The Cable Guy, Bob Saget and Flava Flav as well as the TBS Celebrity Roast of Cheech and Chong and was proud to have made fun of Ice-T and Geraldo Rivera to their faces from the comfort and anonymity of his living room. In addition to writing for the Roast, Jesse was also invited to perform on several shows at the TBS Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. His debut CD Joyce To The World has been well received and is played regularly on XM and Sirius Satellite Radio. In addition, Jesse can be frequently heard on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom morning show, is featured on Bob and Tom’s CD As Big As A Hat, and The Montreal Comedy Hour on the CBC in Canada. Since 2007 Jesse has been one of the four members of the nationally touring Comedy Addiction Tour featuring four comedians tackling the subject of their own addiction and recovery performing in theaters nation wide. He’s a contributor and a member of the marginally prestigious “panel of experts” in the book The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Jokes and was recently featured in a Wall Street Journal article about comics using the internet to promote themselves. Jesse was invited by Eddie Brill, the booker of Letterman to participate in The Great American Comedy Festival 2008 – a tribute comedy festival to Johnny Carson. In October 2009 he wrapped shooting his first feature film entitled “Stags” produced by the legendary Ben Barenholz (Raising Arizona, Requiem for a Dream) due out in early 2010. He also recently took part in a stand up comedy special hosted by Caroline Rhea featuring 20 of New York City’s up and coming comedians called Stand Up 360 which was played in movie theaters around the country in 2009. Jesse has also written numerous TV and radio commercials as well as various print ads. In 2001 he received 2 American Advertising Awards (ADDYs) for his writing. Jesse has entertained audiences in 13 countries on 4 continents; all over the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Djbouti, Kuwait, Iraq, China, Malaysia, Singapore and Switzerland where he has appointed himself The Father of Swiss Comedy, as he’s the only comedian he’s ever heard of performing in Switzerland.
