Rob Delaney:

 Rob Delaney is a writer/stand up originally from Boston and graduated from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Much of Delaney’s success can be attributed to his massive following of over 650,000 followers that grows every day. In 2012, he won the award for “Funniest Person on Twitter” at the Comedy Central Comedy Awards beating out such luminaries as Steve Martin and Stephen Colbert. He’s also been listed as one of “The Funniest People on Twitter” on such sites as the Huffington Post, Vice Magazine, Paste Magazine, Comedy Central, and Funny or Die. Most recently he self-released his debut one-hour comedy special Live at the Bowery Ballroom via his own website, www.robdelaney.com. Rob’s reach spreads beyond the US market; in the UK he sold out the

Soho Theatre in 7 minutes via one “tweet” making him the fastest selling US performer in the venue’s history. His television credits include Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, FUEL TV’s The Daily Habit, and the pilot Movie Nook for TBS. In past years, Rob was a contributing writer for Ridiculousness on MTV and Vice Magazine. At the end of 2011, he filmed a
pilot for Comedy Central entitled @robdelaney. Rob was named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch” for 2012. In 2013, his first novel will be published by Random House. Rob also sings the national anthem for the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He currently performs stand up regularly at the top comedy venues in Los Angeles, New York, and across the United States.

Huffington Post: “ Rob certainly meets all the criteria required for the clutches of stardom to grab 
hold

The Guardian: “Delaney is one of the sensations of the US scene.”

UK Arts Agenda: “An excellent US comic, who pedals wry, searing anecdotes on modern life. A rare, and
fleeting, delight.”

Kumail Nanjiani:

Kumail is a tireless Los Angeles-based writer, actor, and comedian. He has been seen performing stand-up on Conan, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with David Letterman, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. His 2013 comedy special Beta Male was on the "best of 2013" lists for Vulture, Village Voice, and the Onion AV Club, and it was chosen best comedy special of the year by Entertainment Weekly. Kumail is a recurring cast member on shows like Portlandia, AdventureTime, and the webseries Burning Love, among others. He has also appeared in the feature films Hell Baby, Loaded, Bad Milo, Five Year Engagement, and the upcoming Hot Tub Time Marchine 2. He was a regular cast member on TNT's Franklin and Bash for two seasons and is now a regular cast member on the Mike Judge show Silicon Valley on HBO. The live show he cohosts, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, is considered the best standup show in Los Angeles, and it will be a series on Comedy Central in 2014.
