2013 is a huge year for Donnell Rawlings, in the fall you can see him starring in his own show as Judge Rawlings on MTV2’s Guy Court. Donnell will be back on MTV2’s Guy Code for another season as well. Donnell can be seen hosting Staann' Dup to be seen on StarzBlack. He lends his voice in a recurring role as “Another Cat Named Rally” on the hit animation Black Dynamite as well being featured in Adult Swim’s animation. Donnell continues to tour heavily, performing his intelligently bold stand-up throughout the US, Europe, and the Caribbean.
Donnell is an overnight success a decade in the making. He made a splash in the DC comedy clubs going from a heckler in the audience to HBO's Def Comedy Jam in a period of six months. You’ve seen him as 'Ashy Larry' on Comedy Central’s award winning and critically celebrated Chappelle’s Show, where he joined Dave Chappelle as both as a writer and performer. He will also be featured in Queen Latifah's new movie Percentage. His 1-Hour Stand-Up “Ashy to Classy” premiered on Comedy Central in October of 2010.
He was a co-host on both Power 105’s (NY’s #1 Hip Hop and R&B radio station) morning show “Egypt and Ashy in the Morning” and “The Big Tigger Morning Show” on WPGC in Washington DC, and he enjoyed weekly guest appearances on New York’s Hot 97 Morning Show. He was a regular on E!’s “Chelsea Lately", starred in Comedy Central's “Reality Bites Back,” and was the resident “Funny Guy” on the Ricki Lake Show. In 2007, Donnell co-created and starred in Heavy.com’s hit web series “From Ashy to Classy”, which was picked up for a second round of episodes. His movie of the same name
screened at the 2011 L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival.
As an actor Donnell has also appeared in the Law & Order series, Special Victims Unit (SVU) and Criminal Intent (CI) as well as NBC’s Third Watch, the Emmy-Award winning HBO Mini-Series: The Corner and as Day-Day Price on HBO’s Emmy-Award winning series “The Wire.” On the big screen he could be seen in the blockbuster Spider-Man II.
His rise to stardom may not have been “overnight”, but the journey itself has kept him edgy and relevant. Comedy's heavy hitters have noticed his talent with Neal Brennan, co- executive producer and co-head writer of Chappelle’s Show exclaiming “whenever we put Donnell in the game he’s going to hit a home run.” Jamie Foxx says, “That guy is a beast!” Wayne Brady commented that Donnell provides “amazing work on the show” and Dave Chappelle feels that “Donnell brings so much to the table...this very funny guy makes it look natural and easy.”
A regular at some of the world's biggest clubs and most depressing dive bars, Brian Whitaker can only be described as... I can't do this. What's up, I'm Brian. I'm writing this. Matter of fact, everyone whose bio you read on this thing had to write their very own bio, meaning we're left with the option of describing ourselves as amazing people (kinda sorta douchey) or finding some ass-kissy quote someone wrote about us that we tend to agree with (even douchier), so I'd just like to say hi here and that I hope you roll out to a show sometime. I grew up rich and then poor and have been through the ringer of both worlds, so I like to talk about how we're all full of horsesh#t in our own special way. Bottom line, no matter what your background is, you'll likely relate to me. My favorite compliment ever from a fan after a show: "You were my favorite. Please don't tell anyone."
Lukas Seely started comedy back in his hometown of Billings, MT then relocated to Seattle in 2004. Lukas soon became a crowd favorite in Seattle Comedy scene and had since moved to Los Angeles, California where he regularly performs. The comedic poise he brings to the stage is impressive. He makes audiences feel as if they were sitting at home in front of the fire place. His stories about his life in a country city and other life experiences make his performance a knock out punch.
He was nominated as an Emerging Comic in the New York Underground Comedy Festival and has also opened for such names as Dane Cook, Damon Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Ron White, Bill Burr, Greg Giraldo, Jeffery Ross, to name a few. In 2010 Lukas performed his stand-up on Showtime's "Louie Anderson Presents"
