Joe Sib, founder and co-conspirator of SideOneDummy Records for over twenty years has quickly climbed up the ranks of the comedy scene. In 2011 his nationally acclaimed, “California Calling: Growing up Punk,” solidified his success as comedic storyteller. In a twist of irony, his tales of youthful rebellion and irritating his own parents now serve his audience a blend of karmic stand up comedy as he attempts to navigate his own role as a father of two. In 2014, Joe launched the monthly SideOneDummy Storytellers show in Hollywood. He has performed at the SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, FYF Fest, the Laugh Factory and Improv Comedy clubs. When he’s not lamenting his lost youth or fatherhood, Joe hosts the Complete Control radio show on 98.7FM in Los Angeles and nationally select cities.
Robert Mark Pickard III was born and raised in Palos Verdes, Calif., where he surfed, played sports and until he was 16, thought girls had cooties. His soccer skills helped get him into the University of California, Irvine, where he got his B.A. in Literary Journalism. Passionate about comedy and needing money, Robbie waited tables at the Irvine Improv his last two years of college. He was nearly fired on a daily basis for watching the comics while his customers waited 30 minutes for their mozzarella sticks. It wasn’t a job—it was like going to comedy school.
A collegiate soccer player turned frat guy, Robbie’s first taste of performing comedy came when he wrote and hosted roasts of his fellow fraternity brothers. Even though they don’t remember any of it, all of the drunks at these events thought he was super funny, and it gave Robbie the unmerited confidence he needed to pursue a career in comedy. Robbie stepped on stage for the first time on May 11, 2007 at The Ice House in Pasadena, Calif. He did really well because he had about 40 overly supportive friends in the audience, resulting in even more unmerited confidence. Next, he performed at a dive bar in Pomona, Calif. called Scoreboards. He did the exact same five minutes of material that did so well in front of his friends the week before, and bombed miserably. Humbled and humiliated, the journey began.
Since then, Robbie has been moving up the ladder in the Los Angeles comedy scene at a rapid pace. His sharp, tightly written material paired with his laid-back delivery have been winning over audiences across the country. Already a regular at all of the Improvs in Southern California, he is also a regular performer on Comedy Juice, recently hailed by Sirius Satellite Radio as "the best standup show in the country.” In a short time, Robbie has already performed at many of the top comedy clubs in the country: The Improv (Hollywood, Brea, Irvine, Ontario), The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, The Ice House, Caroline’s on Broadway, The Broadway Comedy Club, Stand Up NY and many more. Robbie has shared the stage with some of the hottest comedians working today, including Bill Burr, Jim Norton, Aziz Ansari, Rob Schneider, Harland Williams and Tom Green. He has also been hitting the road as the feature act for Sadiki Fuller and Tom Clark, touring across the Pacific Northwest.
In April 2008, Robbie started producing and hosting his own weekly show at his alma mater, UC Irvine. Monday Night Comedy @ The Anthill Pub has gone on to be one of the most successful recurring social events that the school has ever seen. Each week, Robbie works out new material and brings in top headliners from around the country. Many students that graduated years ago still come back on Monday nights to catch the show. In 2008, he was selected to perform in the California Comedy Festival and was a finalist in Orange County’s Funniest Person Competition. Soon after, producers from National Lampoon caught his act and gave him a role in their film, "Dirty Jokes: The Movie." He has written and produced many popular short films on YouTube, and is finishing writing his first TV pilot.
Robbie currently resides in Santa Monica, Calif., and can be seen live all over Los Angeles, Orange County and the rest of the country.
Sarah Tiana has been a “working” comedian/ex-waitress in Los Angeles since 2003. Originally from Calhoun, GA, Sarah’s act emphasizes the thrills of growing up after “The War Of Northern Aggression” and trying to survive in the current battle of the sexes. She doesn’t call herself “single,” (she’s too old for that), she prefers to be called “sexually active.”
Sarah’s big break came after she was recognized for her “breakout performance” as Carmen in four episodes of Reno 911!’s 7th season. In 2005 she helped create a sketch comedy company called The Strait Jacket Society as a way to help young actors in Hollywood accelerate their stage time and gain exposure while still having fun (she has currently put over 500 actors through the program). A downright ‘Merican, Sarah has done over 10 tours of comedy for the troops including Germany, Singapore, Afghanistan, Guam, Okinawa, and several Wounded Warrior Facilities.
A trip to Iraq at the beginning of the war is highlighted in the documentary film, “We Love You Mrs. Bevins.” Sarah recently wrote and starred in “The Burn” with Jeffrey Ross for 2 seasons on Comedy Central. She is currently a correspondent on “The Soup Investigates” and a regular on the “Chelsea Lately” roundtable.
An avid sports fan Sarah wrote for the ESPY awards and the Rob Riggle NFL segments on Fox. She can also be seen at The World Famous Comedy Store, Twitter, and numerous unhealthy relationships in and around Los Angeles. She will never be seen in the three pilots she taped last year or be caught dead in the dress she wore on Craig Ferguson (it no longer fits).
