D’Elia quickly became a regular at the Hollywood Comedy Clubs where he performs multiple times a week. In December 2013, he released his one-hour standup special for Comedy Central, White Male. Black Comic. He has also appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and on Comedy Central Presents.

Mike Lawrence is a comedian born and raised in South Florida. He began doing comedy as a way to escape the dullness of his job at the McDonald's Drive-Thru and quickly fell in love with it. He moved to New York in 2007, where he could write about all of his miserable life experiences from a safe distance. He has since performed at the New York Comic Con -- a dream come true. He performed at the "New Faces" showcase at the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. He was also nominated for Best Male Comedian at the 2010 ECNY Awards and featured in Time Out New York. He will make his television debut on "John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show" on Comedy Central on April 14, 2011.
Matt Knudsen (Kah-nood-son) was born in Hawaii, raised in the Mid-west and sailed around the world as a merchant marine. After trips to Africa, Europe and The Far East, he eventually put down his sea bag, picked up a microphone and began performing stand up comedy all across the country.
As an actor, you may have seen Matt share the big screen with Oscar winner Sean Penn in the Warner Brothers feature Gangster Squad or you may also recognize him from his appearances in Emmy winning TV shows like Big Love, Boston Legal or Malcolm in the Middle just to name a few. Matt’s also been a part of several high profile commercial campaigns for Volkswagen, Apple and GE; which have aired during the Superbowl and The Olympics.
As a stand up, he’s appeared on Conan, The Late Late Show and Last Call as well as several festivals, including The San Francisco Sketchfest, Bridgetown, Laughing Skull, High Plains and the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal; where he was named a “Best of the Fest.”
His critically acclaimed albums The Comedy Stylings of Matt Knudsen and American are top downloads on iTunes, heard regularly on SiriusXM radio and “Mix droll observation with a dry, almost hypnotic delivery,” (The Onion A.V. Club); and with Knudsen’s unique style, “The personal feels universal, and the universal feels personal. The only explanation for this phenomenon is that it's all finely crafted comedy from a strong central voice…a great stand up album.” (The Huffington Post)
Born in the Philippines, Bryan Callen spent the first fourteen years of his life overseas in countries like India, Pakistan, Lebanon, Greece and Saudi Arabia, before moving to the U.S. He went to high school in Massachusetts and earned his B.A. in History at the American University in Washington D.C.
Callen has spent the last 17 years in Los Angeles fighting traffic because that's where he seems to find the most work (Callen is also writing this but making it seem like someone ELSE is writing this by referring to himself in the 3rd person). Callen got his start as an original cast member of MAD TV. He then went on to play numerous roles on the small and big screen including, "Old School" "Bad Santa", "Sex and the City", “Entourage,” "Californication", “7th Heaven,” “King of Queens,” “Stacked,” “Las Vegas,” “West Wing,” “News Radio,” “Significant Others,” “CSI,” “NYPD Blue,” “Suddenly Susan,” and “Frasier.” He recently finished a two-season character arc on USA’s “In Plain Sight.”
Callen is not a famous actor but sometimes people look at him and scream "Bilson," since that's the character he played on several episodes of CBS’s “How I Met Your Mother.” His most recent TV role was Captain Frank Dashell, leader of the Undead Task Force, in the short-lived but critically acclaimed MTV comedy, "Death Valley." He has been recognized for that role exactly 4 times but who cares since he's been recognized over one million times (I'm guessing) as EDDIE, the Middle Eastern owner of a wedding chapel in a little movie called THE HANGOVER. Not to mention his role as Samir, in HANGOVER II where he played basically the same exact character only Samir had thick, curly, hair and darker skin which is actually a good look on Callen considering his Irish/Italian heritage has left him with a ruddy complexion and thinning, mouse-brown hair.
His most recent roles on the big screen were in the Lion's Gate drama WARRIOR and the 2014 feature film RIDE ALONG starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.
Between acting gigs Callen spends his time power lifting, taming lions, vanquishing evil and making people laugh as a stand up comic. That's why he can currently be seen on SHOWTIME performing a stand up comedy special called MAN CLASS.
You might recognize Todd as the bongo-playing "third Conchord" on Flight of the Conchords, Mickey Rourke's mean boss in The Wrestler; or from roles in Louie, Delocated, Sex And the City, The Larry Sanders Show, Chappelle's Show, Bored To Death, Pootie Tang, and Road Trip. He's done stand-up on Letterman, Conan, and in two of his own Comedy Central Presents specials. You can hear his voice and see him animated on Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Bob's Burgers, Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist, Home Movies, Squidbillies, and in the upcoming Adult Swim show Tight Bros.
Comedian Mal Hall has come a long way in a short period of short time. In four years of performing as a comedian, Mal has worked with headliners Dat Phan, Ian Edwards, and Bobby Lee at clubs and colleges across the country.
Mal is featured as a regular in studio guest on The Show (KIOZ FM Rock 105.3), and The Dave, Shelly and Chainsaw Morning Show on 100.7 JackFM in San Diego.
In January of 2009, Mal was named the unanimous winner of the 2009 Orange County Comedy Competition, which featured over 100 local and national contestants at the Irvine Improv. Along with regularly performing at the World Famous Comedy Store and the Irvine Improv, he has performed at the Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and for many members of the US military at various bases worldwide.
Mal was also a finalist in NBC’s 6th Annual Standup for Diversity nationwide talent search and recently completed a nationwide college tour with NBC as well.
Jade Catta-Preta has performed across the country with Bill Burr, Kevin Nealon and Bobby Lee. She is a regular at The Improv, Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store. She was a cast member last year on Punk'd, and guest starred on "Two Broke Girls" and "The Office." You can watch her opposite Steve Rannazzisi in "Daddy's Knows Best," on Hulu's "The Morning After" and she just finished production on MTV's "Hot Mess." Recently, she made her television stand-up debut on TV Guide's "Stand-up in Stilettos." You can also see her on the upcoming season of Showtime's Californication.
Christian Finnegan is a stand up comedian. He appears frequently on the television and also writes things, for both money and for kicks.
Christian can currently be seen on the TBS sitcom “Are We There Yet?” but is perhaps best known as one of the original cast members of VH1’s “Best Week Ever”, where he offered keen insight into the workings of popular culture and the ubiquity of celebrity genitalia. “Chappelle’s Show” fans will recognize him as ‘Chad’, the only white roommate in the infamous “Mad Real World” sketch. And pinko Communists know Christian from his regular appearances on MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”.
Christian Finnegan is a fixture (some might say ‘barnacle’) on Comedy Central, having starred in countless network interstitials, the shows “Premium Blend” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” and in his own special, “Comedy Central Presents: Christian Finnegan”. Christian was also the host of TV Land’s “Game Time” and has appeared on “The Today Show” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson”.
Christian’s first CD, “Two for Flinching”, was released by Comedy Central Records in 2006 and his super-duper DVD extravaganza, “Au Contraire!” was released by Warner Bros. Records in 2009.
When he’s not on tour, Christian Finnegan lives in New York City with his lovely wife Kambri, a Chihuahua, a parakeet and a useless rabbit. He spends his free time plotting society’s downfall and googling the names of obscure hair metal bass players.
