Entertainment Weekly said in 2012, “If you like Louis CK, check out Jen Kirkman’s hyper self-analytical humor.” Jen has a weekly podcast, “I Seem Fun: The Diary of Jen Kirkman”, which is often in the top 100 in comedy on iTunes. Jen tours as a stand-up but is based in Los Angeles. She is currently working on her second book to come out through Simon & Schuster.
Morgan started making a name for herself on the LA comedy scene while still a student at Loyola Marymount University. Shortly after she graduated, she appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call w/ Carson Daly. While still in college, she wrote on the sketch pilot The Offensive Show created by BJ Porter and Scott Aukerman and after graduating was a staff writer on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Morgan was recently named one of Variety's Top Ten Comics to Watch and appeared in this year's Fresh Faces Showcase at The Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Morgan just returned from touring in Europe and she can currently be seen in the movie "Sleeping Dogs Lie," directed by Bobcat Goldwait.
Comedian Eddie Pepitone is a master of the dark art of comedy. Hailed as a modern day cross between Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Eckhart Tolle. Eddie is a force of nature on stage, switching back and forth between social rage and self doubt. His shows are an energetic combo of calm and chaos, blue collar angst and sardonic enlightenment.
Few comedians working today channel the power of the rant better than Pepitone. He’s one of a kind and a favorite among fellow comedians and die heard comedy fans alike.
In addition to his stand-up skills, Eddie Pepitone is a stand-out comic/character actor. Pepitone began his comedy career in New York City, quickly becoming a regular on the scene. He appeared regularly on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. His other numerous television appearances include Chappelle’s Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, King of Queens, Last Comic Standing, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Sarah Silverman Program. Pepitone recently released a Comedy Album entitled "A Great Stillness" and has a Documentary about his life coming later this year called "The Bitter Buddha."
Tig (affectionately named by her brother as a child) was born in Jackson, Mississippi and raised by her single mother. While serving time in a Texas high school, Tig failed three grades by entertaining classmates rather than entertaining the notion of a successful academic career. After dropping out of school, and a brief stint in the music industry while in Denver, she decided to lodge herself firmly into the always fun and always easy world of comedy.
Last year (2010) was Tig’s third season recurring as “Officer Tig” on “The Sarah Silverman Program” on Comedy Central and also recurred on ABC’s “In the Motherhood” opposite Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines. She was also a writer/consultant on the 2010 “MTV Movie Awards”. Tig is set to release her first comedy album with one of the most prestigious indie music labels, Secretly Canadian in 2011. She will be the first comedian they do an album with. In previous years, she has had her own half-hour comedy special, “Comedy Central Presents Tig” and recurred on Comedy Central’s critically acclaimed show “Dog Bites Man”. Tig is a regular each year at all of the prestigious comedy festivals including Montreal Just For Laughs, Kilkenny, Aspen, Vancouver, and Melbourne (she will be doing her own one hour show at Melbourne in 2011) to name a few. She has also performed on CBS’s “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, NBC’s “Last Call with Carson Daly” and performed on SHOWTIME’s “Live Nude Comedy”.
Tig performs regularly at the Hollywood Improv, The UCB Theater and at Largo in her monthly show, “Tig Notaro and Friends”…and of course, headlining clubs, colleges, theaters and living rooms across the universe.
