A throwback to the days of rock-star comics, Bay-area bred Dean Delray is an enigmatic funny man who brings the party to the stage and pulls no punches with his rock n roll-infused comedy. With subject matter that draws from and mirrors his own crazy life in music and comedy, sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll are all dished up Delray style: raw and honest with a razor-sharp edge! Delray is a motorcycle riding, hard-driving comic who was once signed by 4 Non-Blondes' Linda Perry, toured internationally with The Wallflowers, and opened for Tom Petty, Lenny Kravitz, the Black Crowes, and many more during his time in music. A natural jester, Delray is now fully dedicated to comedy, delivering side-splitting laughter with verve and conviction. With roles in Quentin Tarantino's Hell Ride, Ice Cube's The Longshots, Noise Matters and I LIVE, Delray has quickly become one of the most exciting comics on the Hollywood scene. Delray was recently featured on Pete Holmes podcast YOU MADE IT WEIRD,Jay Mohr's Mohr Stories and Marc Marons WTF podcast & Marc's I.F.C.show Maron. Dean also his own successful podcast LET THERE BE TALK on the ALL THINGS COMEDY network.
The favorite son of Baltimore, Erik Myers has been killing audiences with his fast-paced, high-energy comedy for the last few years. It really has to be seen in person to be believed (this isn't Erik writing this paragraph, by the way)--these are the kinds of jokes you'll try to pass off as your own when talking to your co-workers the next day, you bastard. The concepts (partying, women, family, weighing about 115 pounds soaking wet) are familiar, but no one does them with Erik's style. Erik has been a regular on the 98 Rock morning show in Baltimore. He has won stand-up competitions at the DC Improv, the Baltimore Improv and the Tampa Improv.
Jeff Richards joined the cast of Saturday Night Live as a Featured Player in September 2001. Jeff comes to SNL after touring the country doing stand-up comedy and impressions.
Growing up in Walnut Creek, California a suburb of San Francisco, Jeff excelled in both football and baseball. When a knee injury forced him off the field in his senior year of high school, he focused on public access television. His show "Hanson Live" put Jeff in front of and behind the camera for the first time. After graduating high school, Jeff hosted a morning show radio and created a sketch comedy show that also appeared on public access TV in the bay area. In 1996 he began attending the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill. There he joined the Chapel Hill Improv Players (CHIPS) where he performed live comedy for the first time. Friends, family and teachers encouraged Jeff to unitize his gifts of impersonation as a stand up comedian. Jeff soon began hosting shows at Charlie Goodnights in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In late 1997, Jeff moved to Los Angeles to pursue comedy as a career. He soon became a regular at the world famous Comedy Store and appeared in several local and nationwide commercials. He began touring comedy clubs across the country. In 2000 Jeff briefly joined the cast of Fox¹s MAD TV, appearing most memorably as David Letterman. In 2001, Jeff performed on CBS Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn and NBC¹s Late Friday. His performance on Late Friday caught the attention of Saturday Night Live who invited him to audition and then to become a feature player for the 27th season of the show.
Jeff¹s high-energy stand-up is a mix of his-growing arsenal of impressions (including Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, Louie Anderson, Kevin Spacey, Gary Shandling, Charlie Rose, Don Imus, Dustin Hoffman, and Ozzy Osborne) and outrageous original characters (including the "knife guy", the "drunk girlfriend," her "jealous boyfriend" and the "jock/meathead" from every 80¹s teen movie).
