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. He's had roles in the Lion's Gate drama WARRIOR and the 2014 feature film RIDE ALONG starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. He's also performed a standup comedy special called MAN CLASS on SHOWTIME.
Between acting gigs Callen spends his time power lifting, taming lions, vanquishing evil and making people laugh as a stand up comic.

At 18 years of age Lee moved out of his parents' home and took jobs in restaurants and coffee shops in the San Diego area, while also attending Palomar College for a brief period. In 1994 the coffee shop for which he was working closed. “I just went next door to get a job,” he said, “which was The Comedy Store in San Diego” (also known as the La Jolla Comedy Store). After a few months of working odd jobs at the club he decided to try stand-up during one of their amateur nights. Within a year of doing regular comedy sets he got offers to open for both Pauly Shore and Carlos Mencia. Lee also went on to work regularly at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles, a comedy club owned by Pauly Shore's mother Mitzi.
Lee has admitted in several interviews that his parents had hoped he would continue on with the family business and were less-than supportive of his comedic pursuits at first. During a podcast interview conducted by fellow actor and comedian Joe Rogan, Lee stated that during the first few years he did stand-up his parents barely spoke to him, however after his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno his father called him and apologized for not supporting his comedy career. Lee's parents currently live in Phoenix, Arizona. Lee is known to have included his family in some of his work: His younger brother has appeared in several non-speaking roles on MADtv and his entire family has appeared in a skit on the show.
Employing what he’s labeled “hard funny,” Christopher Titus has released six ninety-minute albums in as many years. He has five one-hour comedy specials currently running on Comedy Central, and his sixth special, Angry Pursuit of Happiness, is set to premiere on Comedy Central on May 9th. After years of experimentation with dark and personal storytelling, he debuted his one-man show “Norman Rockwell is Bleeding” at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles. It was from this performance that the dark comedy, “Titus,” was born on Fox. The show earned Titus a Writer’s Guild nomination as well as an Emmy nomination, and Newsday called him “TV’s most original voice since Seinfeld.”
His second show, “The Fifth Annual End of the World Tour,” was released in 2007 to rave reviews. Titus tackled such difficult issues as the Iraq war, racism, pedophilia and even his father’s unconventional and ridiculous funeral, where he, with his brother and sister’s help, spread his father’s ashes in a casino. These are issues most comedians would run from, but Titus never walks into the familiar.
“Love Is Evol,” Titus’ third one-man show, deconstructs relationships in a way no comic has ever attempted. Titus wades into domestic violence, plastic surgery, custody and all aspects of the nightmare relationships that made him question the existence of God. This groundbreaking comedy special premiered on Comedy Central on Valentine’s Day. The album and dvd were released on February 15th, 2009. Titus claims that “this show will either fix your relationship or destroy it, and either way, you’re welcome.”
“Neverlution,” aired on Comedy Central on July the 4th, 2010. Titus takes no prisoners in this special, tackling the problems of our country, one joke at a time. He quotes, “every joke is a tiny revolution.” Titus declares that we are taking our country back, namely from today’s spoiled children, prescription medication, the media, technology and terrorism.
Titus’ fifth special, “Voice In My Head,” aired on Comedy Central in October 2013. This lighthearted show details all of Titus’ biggest screw-ups, including a hilarious story about his first job as Darth Vader for children’s birthday parties.
“Angry Pursuit of Happiness,” which premiered on Comedy Central in 2015, is Titus at his best, and he leaves no stone unturned in his relentless pursuit for the true meaning of life. Titus covers everything from the Pope, the Boston Bombing, to his Dad’s awkward, yet hilarious ED problem. In one of his most epic and darkly funny bits, Titus solves the nation’s problems by “arming the children.”
Titus is currently performing his newest one-man show, “Born With a Defect,” to sold out theaters across the country.
Titus shone in 2007 as the lovable character, Brody, in ABC’s “Big Shots.” He shared the screen with Dylan McDermott, Michael Vartan and Joshua Molina as a successful CEO who had total control in business, and no control in his relationship.
Inspired by such greats as Woody Allen, Steve Martin, and Cosby, who wrote, directed, produced and performed, Titus has sold ideas to NBC, ABC, FOX and Comedy Central. In 2013, Titus formed his own production company, Combustion World Industries, and produced his two most recent comedy specials, “Voice In My Head” and “Angry Pursuit of Happiness.” His first film production will be “Special Unit,” which is about four disabled detectives. Titus describes it as “The Shield with handicapped people” and is planning for film production in October 2015.
After watching Christopher Titus perform live, there is no doubt that he is one of the best comics working today. With the complete package of comedy, acting and writing, there hasn’t been a performer like him in a long time.
Jeff Ross is an actor, writer, director, producer, and comedian originally from Newark, New Jersey. His latest special “Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals: Live From Brazos County Jail” premiered on Comedy Central on June 13. It’s perhaps his most dangerous roast yet. In fact, he has earned the title of The Roastmaster General skewering the likes of Justin Bieber, James Franco, Charlie Sheen, Pam Anderson and Donald Trump on Comedy Central’s wildly popular Roast franchise in which he also produces. He was recently seen on the big screen in Jeremy Garrelick’s “The Wedding Ringer” with Kevin Hart and Josh Gad and will soon be seen in “Flock of Dudes” with Chris D’Elia, which premieres at the LA Film Festival this month. He also starred on ABC’s multi camera comedy pilot “Keep It Together", produced by Kevin Hart and “The Burn” on Comedy Central, a show which he created, starred in and produced. Jeff’s writing credits include the screenplay "The Comedian" (co-written with Art Linson) and the book, "I Only Roast The Ones I Love" published by Simon & Schuster.
Every month Skyler Stone (Raising Hope, Comedy Central's CON, Waiting, For Your Consideration) puts on an amazing evening of comedy and music. Except it is not what you might think. It isn't comedians going up and then musicians going up and doing their separate acts. NO! It is all integrated. Skyler only books comedians who use music in their acts (like Zach Galifianakis or Garfunkel & Oates) and comics who love to talk about music in their acts (think Brian Posehn ranting about metal music or Chris Porter gabbing about the Black Crowes). The night is topped off with a special A-list musician that is brought onstage for a hilarious and intimate interview done by Skyler. So far musicians that have been interviewed are Josh Homme from Queens Of The Stone Age and Andy Summer from The Police. A Portion of the proceeds for every show goes to the charity of our musician's choice! This show is one of the Improv's hottest, so get your tickets now or you will miss out!
