Dax Jordan is a renowned stand-up comedian, writer and actor hailing from Portland, Oregon. In addition to a handful of minor film and tv appearances, Dax has been a touring comic for over ten years.
His comedy stems from his brilliant wit and impeccable timing, often called upon to write for others as well. His routine spans hilarious life observations to the wacky and clever shenanigans he is known for.
Dax's good looks (or as he calls it, 'smart looking'), flawless delivery, and ability to think quick and funny on his feet have made him a fan favorite around the country. In 2010 he placed 3rd in the Seattle Comedy Competition, beating out winners of numerous other contests around the United States.
Mike Cannon is a New York City based comedian and a delightful human being. He thinks being a good human being is more important, but for the purposes of this advertisement will keep his thoughts focused to comedy. Mike has been featured on VH1’s “Why Am I Still Single?”, The Huffington Post, Sirius/XM Radio - Raw Dawg Comedy Channel, and Laughspin.com among others. This fall he will appear on MTV's new Untitled Fail Show as a featured comedian panelist. Mike regularly plays major clubs throughout New York City, and is always working on his act. It makes no difference to him whether he’s performing in clubs, trying jokes out on his friends, or bothering strangers on the subway for loose change or a sandwich. Comedy is his life, and he is dedicated to making the majority of you laugh and the rest of you squirm.
