Combining hyper ADD with an amusingly acute take on things- Davidoff puts on one of the most high intensity shows in standup- making himself an audience favorite. Voted Top Ten Comedy Albums of 08’ on iTunes and PUNCHLINE magazine, his CD, “The Point Is…” released on COMEDY CENTRAL RECORDS® proves exactly that point.

He dissects the irony and problems of the world in a way that makes funny what otherwise isn’t. Dov reaches people in a way that not only makes people think and look at themselves, but laugh hysterically while doing so.

In the 1990’s, McDonald worked steadily in television, landing guest spots on “Seinfeld,” “Ellen,” “Just Shoot Me” and “News Radio.” Finally, in 1998, he obtained a starring role on “MADtv,” where he enjoyed an unprecedented ten-year run.

Ryan Dalton is a homegrown Cleveland favorite. Ryan attended the prestigious Kent State University. After college, Ryan went on to hold part time jobs in such world-reknowned trades as food service, retail, and coffee distribution. Finally, Ryan sunk his teeth into the most honest profession in the world, car sales. This dream occupaion was not enough for him. Ryan hungered for the taste of stand up comedy, and on a dare, took the stage in Nanuet, NY in 1998. This experience started a hunger for the constant approval from crowds of complete stangers. His thirst would never be quenched!
Ryan soon discovered the entertainment industry where a basic lack of knowledge on any subject is not only necessary, but also embraced. He uses stand-up as a device in which he pokes fun at controversy and the "everyday personal injustices" that are dealt with by the common man, sorry, person, whatever!
Ryan is a comedian that wants everyone to just relax. His lovable sarcasm and smart, conversational style makes for a broadly appealing show.
Ryan's standup has led him to regular appearences in the country's best comedy clubs. Ryan is a regular on the nationally syndicated, "Bob and Tom Radio Show," and he was featured as one of "Myspace.com's Featured Comedians". His performances landed him a spot in the third season of Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham."
Louis was born and raised in Los Angeles (not the Valley, not Orange County, but actually in Los Angeles). His comedy career began at the incredibly early age of 9 when as part of a school project he submitted several jokes to “The Tonight Show,” two of which were read on air by Johnny Carson. When Louis moved to Northern California to attend UC Berkeley, he continued to pursue comedy as a writer/performer with the Theater Rice sketch comedy troupe. After graduating, he began performing stand-up throughout the Bay Area and quickly made a name for himself. He is now a professional comedian who can be seen performing at clubs and colleges across the country. In 2005, Louis had a great year, appearing in both the Montreal Comedy Festival and Atlanta’s “Laffapalooza” Comedy Festival. He also made his television debut (not counting the time he went on "The Judge Joe Brown Show") on “Last Call with Carson Daly.”
Steve-O (a.k.a. Stephen Glover) has become a household name and it all started when he snatched a video camera from his father’s closet when he was fifteen years old. From there he started producing homemade skateboarding videos featuring dangerous stunts mixed with comical behavior. He was born in London and by the age of twelve, had lived in five countries and communicated fluently in three different languages. He holds citizenship in three countries - the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. After finishing high school in London, and completing a year at the University of Miami, Steve-O realized that college wasn’t for him. He enrolled in Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Clown College to help further his goal of becoming a professional stuntman. After graduating Clown College, and determined to make it in Hollywood, he began to pitch his home videos to producers. Eventually, Steve-O’s videos made it into the hands of Jeff Tremaine (Jackass Creator/Director/Producer) who was working with Johnny Knoxville to create a stunt ba-+sed reality show. The rest is history. MTV aired the first season of JACKASS in 2000. In 2001, Steve-O launched his own “Steve-O Don’t Try This At Home Tour”, establishing himself as an accomplished stage performer, at venues throughout the U.S. and in a dozen countries. When the JACKASS TV series ended in 2002, the team moved on to JACKASS: THE MOVIE, released by Paramount in October of that year. Shortly thereafter, Steve-O and fellow JACKASS alum, Chris Pontius, were given a spin-off show entitled WILDBOYZ, which aired on MTV and MTV2 and lasted four seasons. In 2006, Paramount released JACKASS: NUMBER 2 in theatres and Steve-O continued to thrill audiences with his outrageous stunts. In 2009 he competed on ABC’s hit show, DANCING WITH THE STARS, and lasted six weeks, despite an injury and having virtually no dancing ability whatsoever. In 2010, Steve-O returned for the Paramount franchise in JACKASS 3D which turned out to be a huge hit at the box office for the third installment with JACKASS 3.5 releasing shortly after on DVD. In the months leading up to the release of JACKASS 3D he immersed himself in standup comedy, which had been a part-time hobby during the previous four years. Successful performances at prestigious comedy venues such as LA’s Laugh Factory and New York City’s Comedy Cellar led to his current tour performing standup, stunts and bar-tricks across North America, Australia and Europe, which he has dubbed “Steve-O’s Entirely Too Much Information Tour.” On June 7, 2011 Steve-O released his autobiography, Professional Idiot: A Memoir, with publisher Hyperion Books. In 2012, Steve-O hosted the game show called Killer Karaoke for truTV. The show challenged contestants to break out in song in the midst of extreme, hilarious and sometimes skin-crawling situations. In 2013, Steve-O launched his YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/steveo) where he has garnered well over a million subscribers. He uses the site to regularly upload new original material – mixing his stunt work with his comedy bits. Steve-O has been clean and sober since March of 2008 and lives a healthy, vegan lifestyle in the Los Angeles area...but he still has no problem stapling his balls to his leg.
