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.
KUMAIL NANJIANI is a tireless New York-based writer and performer who first gained attention for his critically acclaimed one-man UCB show "Unpronounceable,” a hilarious account of his growing up in a highly religious community in Pakistan, and making his way to glamorous Iowa for engineering college, before exploring standup in Chicago and New York. In the past year, Kumail has appeared on SNL, The Colbert Report, Kimmel, and Letterman, won two ECNYs for best standup and one-man show, and was featured New York Magazine’s “10 comedians to watch” feature as well as Variety’s “10 comics to watch.“ He also just wrapped the role of “Simon” in Greg Berlanti’s LIFE AS WE KNOW IT for Warner Brothers. Kumail is currently writing a pilot loosely based on his life for NBC and Conaco, as well as writing and performing on MICHAEL AND MICHAEL HAVE ISSUES for Comedy Central. Kumail was recently profiled in the NY Times and was the host of this year’s Gotham IFP Awards in New York.
