Standup comedian and actor Ari Shaffir describes his comedy as a puppet show, but way filthier and without the puppets. He was a featured standup on the HBO comedy series Down and Dirty with Jim Norton and performed at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and Toronto, the San Francisco SketchFest, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland. Shaffir’s satirical shorts “The Amazing Racist” for National Lampoon went viral on the Internet with millions of views. Additionally, he has appeared on TBS’s Conan, Comedy Central’s Jon Benjamin Has A Van, ESPN Classic’s Cheap Seats, and dozens of national commercials. Ari’s podcast is called The Skeptic Tank and he is a regular guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
Shaffir resides in Los Angeles where he is a regular at The Comedy Store, The Improv and The Laugh Factory. He also headlines around the country and frequently tours with Joe Rogan.
Bill Burr is one of the top comedic voices of his generation achieving success in TV and film as well as the live stage. Selling out theaters internationally, Bill is a regular with Letterman, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon and his Monday Morning Podcast is one of the most downloaded comedy podcasts on iTunes. Bill’s fourth hour-long comedy special, I’m Sorry You Feel That Way, is on Netflix. He will be seen alongside Kevin Costner in the upcoming film Black and White, and earlier this year he was seen alongside Elizabeth Banks in the film Walk of Shame. Bill guest starred in several episodes of Kroll Show on Comedy Central, was seen in the Paul Feig film, The Heat, alongside Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and in the Al Pacino and Christopher Walken film Stand Up Guys. Bill received raves for his recurring role of “Kuby” on the hit AMC-TV show, Breaking Bad, and he guest starred on Fox TV’s New Girl. His third hour-long special, You People Are All The Same, is available for download exclusively through his website and streaming on Netflix; his two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials are available on Netflix and DVD.
“One of the most complex and exciting stand-ups working in America today. Like an idealistic hippy stuck inside the body of a testosterone-pumped US marine. He’s been likened to late great US comedians such as Bill Hicks and Sam Kinison, but although he exhibits a similar brand of furious indignation, his observations and revelations are entirely his own. His angry, insightful act is an absorbing battle between his raw libertarian instincts and his refined liberal sensibilities.”
