Todd Glass (Born Kendall Todd Glass) is an American comedian from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a contestant on the second and third seasons of NBC's Last Comic Standing and has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, the Sarah Silverman Program, Mr. Show with Bob and David, and his own Comedy Central Presents special. Todd also does a podcast titled Comedy And Everything Else with fellow comedian Jimmy Dore and Stefane Zamorano. Todd released a CD of live standup called Vintage Todd Glass and Other Crap and is also featured on the two CD set Comedy Death-Ray, a compilation of various stand-up comedians recorded at the UCB theater in Los Angeles, California. On the May 8, 2009 episode of Comedy and Everything Else, Todd mentions that he will have a new CD coming at the end of May on Comedy Central Records called "Thin Pig".
Jerrod Carmichael is an LA based standup and performer originally from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He has been crafting his standup for over three years and this year was featured in Variety as being one of the top ten comics to watch, as well as being one of the New Faces at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
Jerrod is a regular around some of LA’s favorite standup shows, including Meltdown, The Improv, Laugh Factory and many alternative rooms.
Comedian Jerrod Carmichael is getting his very first standup special, and it's going to be a big one: an hour-long special for HBO. The untitled special will be taped May 7th, 2014 at The Comedy Store, and it will air later this year. Carmichael's HBO hour is being produced by Funny Or Die and directed by Spike Lee. This will be only the second standup special Spike Lee has directed, following the 2000 standup concert film The Original Kings of Comedy.
In an interview with us back in 2012, Carmichael discussed plans to do a special:
"I have an idea [for a special]. I think it's a good idea. It's very specific to me … If you do a special, you want to do it not just to do a special. You want to do it because you have something to say, and you think it can be impactful. So, what I want to say is coming out more, and I'm excited about that."
It's very rare for HBO to give an hour special to a comedian as new as Carmichael, who, although he's been doing standup since 2008, has never done a set on TV. Most comedians start with late night spots or a half-hour Comedy Central special, so Carmichael getting an hour on HBO, which is a prestigious and sought-after gig in the industry, as his first televised performance says a lot about how much faith HBO has in him.
Carmichael, who ranked first in a 2013 poll we conducted amongst LA bookers and hosts to determine their favorite up and coming standups, has appeared on Fox's The Goodwin Games, the upcoming movie Neighbors, and created and starred in a sitcom pilot that's currently in development at NBC.
New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-playing “Third Conchord” on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords and Mickey Rourke’s deli boss in 2009 Oscar winner The Wrestler, and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced, measured, and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline, his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent, often biting, occasionally absurdist worldview, one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary.
Boasting multiple stand-up appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and two Comedy Central Presents specials, and his latest one hour Comedy Central special Super Crazy. Todd’s resume also includes such hit TV shows as Louie, Delocated, Bored to Death, Tim and Eric, Chappelle’s Show, Sex and the City, and even Sesame Street. Among his additional feature-film highlights are Todd Phillips’s Road Trip, Louis CK’s Pootie Tang, and Mitch Hedberg’s Los Enchiladas. You can see him soon at Sigourney Weaver's right hand man in Amy Heckerling's Vamps, and as Paul Rudd's co-worker in David Wain's Wanderlust. Internationally he has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival, the Vancouver International Comedy Festival, and Kilkenny, Ireland’s Cat Laughs Festival.
Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show, and his albums Medium Energy, Falling Off the Bone, and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records, Amazon and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival’s Jury Award, praise from Ricky Gervais as one of the best comedians of 2009, and accolades from The Onion’s A.V. Club, which declared Medium Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade.
Todd was the subject of a recent New York Times Arts section cover story, which referred to him as a “master of standup” and noted “when it comes to live performance, few comics are more consistently funny.”
In April 2013 the Todd Barry Podcast debuted. It reached #1 on the iT

“Acerbic wit, deadpan delivery and wickedly smart punchlines.” – Time Out New York
“Barry is so beautifully arid he is positively parched.” – London Evening Standard
“The success lies with the delivery, and in his ability to seamlessly merge ad-libbed material with his prepared schtick.” – The Age, Melbourne
Heart of Darkness: The world's most important live event
featuring Greg Barris, Kate Berlant, Rory Scovel and musical guest Arizona
A staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene, Greg Barris is the creator of Heart Of Darkness: a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music and fringe scientists that just recently had its 20th sold-out show in a row, at Union Hall in Brooklyn! Heart Of Darkness has been a frequent TimeOut New York critic’s pick, and has also been hailed by the Village Voice and the New Yorker as well — and BrooklynVegan calls it “NYC’s most awe-inspiring comedy/variety/brainz shows.”
