Chris D’Elia is quickly becoming one of the most sought after young comedians and actors in the comedy world, with Variety naming him one of their “Top 10 Comics to Watch.” D’Elia currently can be seen starring as Danny on NBC’s comedy series Undateable, which was recently picked up for a second season. He also recently completed his first multi-city, cross-country standup tour, “Under No Influence.” He previously starred opposite Whitney Cummings on NBC’s multi-camera comedy series Whitney.
D’Elia quickly became a regular at the Hollywood Comedy Clubs where he performs multiple times a week. In December 2013, he released his one-hour standup special for Comedy Central, White Male. Black Comic. He has also appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and on Comedy Central Presents.
D’Elia’s other credits include Comedy Central’s Workaholics, TBS’ Glory Daze and Showtime’s Live Nude Comedy.
Tone Bell is best known for starring in the NBC multicamera comedy "Whitney" as RJ, Alex's (Chris D'Elia) old high school friend who has moved back to Chicago to bartend after a recent divorce. Born and raised in Atlanta, the stand-up comedian began his career in Dallas, where he was voted one of the Funniest Comics in Texas. Bell's real-life brand of comedy has seen him succeed on both the comedy festival circuit as well as previously on NBC as the winner of the Stand Up For Diversity program. Tone recently was a guest on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and was also featured on the Spike TV special Eddie Murphy: One Night Only and E!’s “Love You Mean It”. He currently tours around the country performing at colleges and clubs. Tone recently starred in a single-camera comedy pilot for Fox and can be seen next on Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele”.
If the adage is true — that tragedy plus time equals comedy — then Ryan Sickler has paid his dues on the left side of the equation. Born in Baltimore, Ryan lost his father when he was 16. After that, he bounced from one relative to another. And while his early years might have seemed rocky, that tumultuous childhood gave him both fodder for material and armor against the relentless onslaught that is life as a standup comic.
His television appearances include The Pete HolmesShow, Comedy Central’s Tosh.O, Live At Gotham, Cutman and The Late Late Show.
Beyond standup, Ryan Sickler is an engaging storyteller. You can catch him every Tuesday (Toozdee) on his podcast, The CrabFeast. Inspired by his hometown, the show celebrates the things Ryan loves most — storytelling, family, friends and laughter.
Known to those in the know as “The Full Charge,” Matt Fulchiron hardly lives up to his nickname. Worn down by relationships, adult responsibilities, and limited resources; Fulchiron coasts through his life and his act with a sarcastic and defeated outlook. Matt has performed on the television shows “Comedy Central Presents,” “Live at Gotham,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Last Comic Standing,” “Tosh.0,” and “Comics Unleashed.” He’s appeared on The Bob and Tom Radio show, and was the opening act on Daniel Tosh’s “Tosh Tour Twenty Ten.” There’s nothing you can do about it.
Brent Morin can be seen on the hit NBC series UNDATEABLE which is currently entering its second season. After Brent’s memorable set at the "Just For Laughs" New Faces show, Brent quickly began to make a name for himself with appearances on Chelsea Lately, Conan and Comedy Central. He can be seen this season on episodes of Brooklyn 99, The McCarthy’s and Ground Floor. Only a year after his New Faces set at Montreal, Brent was named one of "Variety's Top Ten Comics To Watch," and all this at only the age of 28! This leads us to believe that this is only the beginning…
Jerrod Carmichael is an LA based standup and performer originally from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He has been crafting his standup for over three years and this year was featured in Variety as being one of the top ten comics to watch, as well as being one of the New Faces at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
Jerrod is a regular around some of LA’s favorite standup shows, including Meltdown, The Improv, Laugh Factory and many alternative rooms.
Comedian Jerrod Carmichael is getting his very first standup special, and it's going to be a big one: an hour-long special for HBO. The untitled special will be taped May 7th, 2014 at The Comedy Store, and it will air later this year. Carmichael's HBO hour is being produced by Funny Or Die and directed by Spike Lee. This will be only the second standup special Spike Lee has directed, following the 2000 standup concert film The Original Kings of Comedy.
In an interview with us back in 2012, Carmichael discussed plans to do a special:
"I have an idea [for a special]. I think it's a good idea. It's very specific to me … If you do a special, you want to do it not just to do a special. You want to do it because you have something to say, and you think it can be impactful. So, what I want to say is coming out more, and I'm excited about that."
It's very rare for HBO to give an hour special to a comedian as new as Carmichael, who, although he's been doing standup since 2008, has never done a set on TV. Most comedians start with late night spots or a half-hour Comedy Central special, so Carmichael getting an hour on HBO, which is a prestigious and sought-after gig in the industry, as his first televised performance says a lot about how much faith HBO has in him.
Carmichael, who ranked first in a 2013 poll we conducted amongst LA bookers and hosts to determine their favorite up and coming standups, has appeared on Fox's The Goodwin Games, the upcoming movie Neighbors, and created and starred in a sitcom pilot that's currently in development at NBC.
Line up: Chris D'Elia, Ryan Sickler, Tone Bell, Theo Von, Matt Fulchiron, Justin Harrison
