With appearances on TOSH.0, The Late Late show, The Smoking Gun Presents, Conan and his own half hour special on Comedy Central Jay has come a long way since he moved to Los Angeles in 2000. After flunking out of college, then finally getting accepted back after many attempts, Jay threw away his diploma to pursue a career in Stand Up comedy. After living in a condemned house for 14 months, I mean who hasn't, Jay started opening for comedy greats such as Nick Swardson, Daniel Tosh and Pablo Fransisco. He soon became known as a comedian with a whacky, original voice who tends to get a little weird. Since those early days Jay has continued climbing the ranks with multiple TV appearances, many internet short films and his first album, "Self-Diagnosed". His voice continues to grow as he has delved into the world of interacting with strangers and creating conflict with people he doesn't know. Jay is a fantastic storyteller, showcased weekly on his podcast, "The Crabfeast" on Jay Mohr's Fake Mustache Studios. With TV projects in development, be sure to catch Jay now before he ignores everyone...forever...seriously...he will.
If the adage is true — that tragedy plus time equals comedy — then Ryan Sickler has paid his dues on the left side of the equation. Born in Baltimore, Ryan lost his father when he was 16. After that, he bounced from one relative to another. And while his early years might have seemed rocky, that tumultuous childhood gave him both fodder for material and armor against the relentless onslaught that is life as a standup comic.
His television appearances include The Pete Holmes Show, Comedy Central’s Tosh.O, Live At Gotham, Cutman and The Late Late Show.
Beyond standup, Ryan Sickler is an engaging storyteller. You can catch him every Tuesday (Toozdee) on his podcast, The CrabFeast. Inspired by his hometown, the show celebrates the things Ryan loves most — storytelling, family, friends and laughter.
Nick Thune, comedian / actor, hails from the Great Northwest (Seattle), where he spent his early years growing up. Nick’s absurdest view and deadpan wit combined with the soothing lull of his guitar, have distinguished his unique style of comedy. He has appeared on the Tonight Show 8 times, and on each occasion, he won. Nick has also appeared on Conan, The Late Show w/ Jimmy Fallon and has his own Comedy Central Special.
Thick Noon, Nick’s debut album, was released on Comedy Central Records in 2010 and was included in amazon.com's "Best of 2010 Comedy Albums". Nick can be seen in Mike Judge’s movie “Extract” and the independent film “Highway 61 Re: Revisited” opposite Tobin Bell. Thune’s other film credits include “Spring Breakdown” and “Unaccompanied Minors”.
Nick has created two web series for Comedy Central, "iThunes" and "NicksBigShow.com". Currently, Nick is touring the country changing lives one joke at a time. For more information, go to nickthune.com, eyethune.com or twitter.com/nickthune.

Mixing his spontaneous creativity and absurd view of the world, Rory Scovel is quickly making a name for himself across North America. Whether discussing drugs, politics, or life in general his infectious stage presence and engaging charisma will quickly shift the vibe of any room and place the audience in the scene of every punch line.
Rory Scovel has been featured at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot and Bonnaroo. His Comedy Central Half Hour premiered last May. Rory has also been seen on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and CONAN.

His CD, DILATION, is available on iTunes and he recently released a vinyl album, RORY SCOVEL LIVE AT THIRD MAN RECORDS.
“Picture a storyteller, philosopher, and absurdist, whom you can’t quite decide whether he’s a nice guy or a huge asshole. Either way, he’s pretty damn funny.” -Daniel Berkowitz, LaughSpin
