Stephen Rannazzisi plays "Kevin," the League Commissioner on FX’s hit show The League. He was the first one of the group to get married and have a kid, which makes him as close as it gets to an adult in this group. He started the League because he thought it would be fun but now has realized it just means babysitting seven more children.
Actor/comedian Rannazzisi got his first taste of television success in 2003 as one of the smart-ass cast members on MTV's Punk'd. After being recognized on stage by Ashton Kutcher at the Comedy Store in West Hollywood, Steve was quickly signed up for the show. Since then Steve has continued to make audiences laugh in television, feature films and on comedy stages across the country.
Stephen grew up in Long Island, and majored in Theater and Film at the State University of New York at Purchase. After graduation and a short-lived desk job, Stephen left the Big Apple and moved out to Los Angeles to pursue his dream career in entertainment.
Upon arrival, his first job was as a doorman at the world-famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard. It was there that he honed his skills amongst some of the most prolific comics in the business, such as Eddie Griffin, Joe Rogan and Andrew Dice Clay. He also worked hard on his character acting and improvisational skills with The Groundlings School and Comedy Troupe.
After his success on Punk'd, he was made a series regular on ABC's Big Day, which chronicled all the hilarious happenings of a couple's wedding. Stephen played the wise cracking best-man "Skobo." After that series Stephen was cast yet again by ABC as a lead opposite Heather Locklear in See Jayne Run. Stephen was recently seen opposite Eddie Murphy and Thomas Hayden Church in the Paramount feature film Imagine That. He played "Kulik" the levelheaded partner in the financial investment firm where Eddie Murphy worked. Additionally this year, Stephen starred opposite Kevin James in the Sony Pictures blockbuster comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Stephen was cast as the leading character of "Stuart," the manager of the Pen store in a Mall that gets taken over in a robbery heist.
In addition to performing stand-up, his credits include guest starring in the FOX series Kitchen Confidential, HBO's Sex in the City, and NBC's Third Watch. Stephen has also performed on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, and appeared in the feature films Summer of Sam and For Your Consideration.
Comedian/actor Eric Andre is the creator/host of THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW on Adult Swim. New episodes are on Thursdays at 12:30 am on Adult Swim. He will be touring with THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW live in November (after an extremely successful cross-country tour last year). Beyond his show, he has performed stand-up at clubs, colleges and festivals all around the country. Eric was most recently on ABC’s DON’T TRUST THE B IN APT 23 and on the big screen in THE INTERNSHIP with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.
Rob Lindo hails from Vancouver by way of Jamaica (that's a story for another day). But he also lived in New Jersey and Washington, DC, before relocating to LA in 2008. He has been involved in the LA stand-up community since 2009. Rob has been seen in various national commercials, on Atom TV, Johnny B. Homeless, Comedy Central, Break.com, and Funny or Die.
Rob performs around LA at the Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, and the Pasadena Ice House. He is also a member of the comedy trio The Skinny Dicks. It was with this ridiculous trio that he co-created Skinny Sundays - a comedy show featuring nationally headlining comics and the rising stars of comedy in unfair head-to-head competitions, purely for the enjoyment of the audience. As producer and co-host, Rob was a part of the show's development and eventual transition to its new home on the main stage of the world famous Hollywood Improv.
An east coaster by birth, Joey DePaolo found his beginnings in comedy in New York, writing and directing comedy shorts that were selected for air by NBC, IFC, and even Canada's own BITEtv. Joey made his arrival on the LA comedy scene in 2009 with the comedy trio The Skinny Dicks. It was through the group that he co-created Skinny Sundays, a night of unfair stand-up comedy attracting some of the biggest names and best hidden talents in the stand-up world. As producer and co-host, Joey was a part of the show's blossoming and eventual landing with its new home on the main stage of the world famous Hollywood Improv. Joey performs regularly on both coasts and has been seen on Funny or Die and as a regular in the sketch comedy/variety show Comedy Slice at the Improv Comedy Lab.
Born in the Philippines, Bryan Callen spent the first fourteen years of his life overseas in countries like India, Pakistan, Lebanon, Greece and Saudi Arabia, before moving to the U.S. He went to high school in Massachusetts and earned his B.A. in History at the American University in Washington D.C.
Callen has spent the last 17 years in Los Angeles fighting traffic because that's where he seems to find the most work (Callen is also writing this but making it seem like someone ELSE is writing this by referring to himself in the 3rd person). Callen got his start as an original cast member of MAD TV. He then went on to play numerous roles on the small and big screen including, "Old School" "Bad Santa", "Sex and the City", “Entourage,” "Californication", “7th Heaven,” “King of Queens,” “Stacked,” “Las Vegas,” “West Wing,” “News Radio,” “Significant Others,” “CSI,” “NYPD Blue,” “Suddenly Susan,” and “Frasier.” He recently finished a two-season character arc on USA’s “In Plain Sight.”
Callen is not a famous actor but sometimes people look at him and scream "Bilson," since that's the character he played on several episodes of CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother.” His most recent TV role was Captain Frank Dashell, leader of the Undead Task Force, in the short-lived but critically acclaimed MTV comedy, "Death Valley." He has been recognized for that role exactly 4 times but who cares since he's been recognized over one million times (I'm guessing) as EDDIE, the Middle Eastern owner of a wedding chapel in a little movie called THE HANGOVER. Not to mention his role as Samir, in HANGOVER II where he played basically the same exact character only Samir had thick, curly, hair and darker skin which is actually a good look on Callen considering his Irish/Italian heritage has left him with a ruddy complexion and thinning, mouse-brown hair.
His most recent roles on the big screen were in the Lion's Gate drama WARRIOR and the 2014 feature film RIDE ALONG starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.
Between acting gigs Callen spends his time power lifting, taming lions, vanquishing evil and making people laugh as a stand up comic. That's why he can currently be seen on SHOWTIME performing a stand up comedy special called MAN CLASS.
Nate Bargatze has had an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, two late night appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, four appearances on Conan, two appearances on Comedy Central's "@ Midnight", and had his own Comedy Central Presents in 2011. He has written for Spike TV's Video Game Awards and received critical acclaim at the Montreal Comedy Festival multiple years. When he isn't winning comedy festivals in both New York and Boston, or performing at Bonnaroo or on tour with Jimmy Fallon's Clean Cut Comedy Tour, he might just be performing for troops in Iraq, which he has done five times. His debut comedy album "Yelled at by a Clown" reached #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. Nate was also featured last year as one of Esquire's Best New Comedians of 2012, as one of Marc Maron's comedians to watch in Rolling Stone and in Paste Magazine, and as one of the 10 Comedians Who Deserve Their Own TV Show on CoolMaterial.com.
My name is Sean Patton. I am Comedian based in New York and Los Angeles by way of New Orleans. I cut my teeth doing standup in the Crescent city and since have performed at Caroline's, The Comedy Cellar, Gotham, The Improv, UCBNY, UCBLA, The Melbourne International comedy festival (2011), The Montreal Just for Laughs comedy festival (2008, 2010), and many other clubs around the US and Canada.
I made my Basic Cable debut on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" (2009) and my Network TV debut on "Late night with Jimmy Fallon" (2010). I also recently appeared on "Conan" (2011).
I love doing what I do. Some of you will love it too (thanks!), but some of you will not (thanks for coming) My big plans for the future are to continue sharing my comedy with as many people as possible and to one day fall in love with You. Yes, You, the person reading this bio right now. Don't worry about breaking my heart because I plan on turning the experience into material anyway. Later!
