    John Henson

     John Henson

    An actor, writer, host and producer of over 1,400 hours of television, John Henson is entering his 6th season as co-host and producer of ABC’s hit reality series “Wipeout,” the #1 co-viewing show on television and winner of the 2012 “Kids Choice Award” for Best Reality Show.

    With an impressive 25 years in the business, Henson has established himself as one of entertainment’s sought-after players with projects in various stages of development. Having recently expanded his production company, Skunk Boy Inc., Henson is set to produce the film “Making Jack Falcone,” based on the New York Times best-selling book by Joaquin “Jack” Garcia. Produced with Double Feature Films, the project will star Benicio Del Toro with Academy Award-winner Steven Soderbergh as executive producer.

    Henson began his professional career as a stand-up comedian where he enjoyed much success, touring the country for several years. He gained audiences’ attention and critical acclaim when he was selected to replace Greg Kinnear as host of E! Entertainment’s Emmy award-winning “Talk Soup.” It was this role as host, writer and co-executive producer of “Talk Soup” which garnered Henson a cult following, in addition to three Emmy award nominations and four Cable Ace nominations.

    Henson’s subsequent projects included the hour-long weekly series “The John Henson Project” which he created for Spike TV, as well as TV Guide Network’s longest running series “Watch This” where he served as host, writer and executive producer. In 2006, he hosted the Creative Arts Technical Emmys opposite Meredith Vieira. In spring 2010, Henson served as celebrity guest host on the game show sensation “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” Henson is also a pop culture analyst, regularly appearing on NBC, CNN and MSNBC among others. Most recently, John served as guest host on the popular entertainment news show “TMZ.”

    His most recent acting credits include a recurring guest star role as Mike Moon, the father of Austin Moon on Disney’s hit show “Austin & Ally,” alongside his real-life wife, comedian Jill Benjamin, who plays Mimi Moon, his wife on the show. He was also seen in a recurring role on NBC’s “My Name is Earl.”

    John has returned to stand up comedy, touring the country in addition to being a regular at The Laugh Factory and The Improv in Los Angeles, where he also performs improv comedy. As a writer, Henson has contributed to US Weekly, TV Guide and George Magazine.

    John is also dedicated to several children’s charities, working regularly with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Children’s Institute, Inc., a charity benefiting victims of domestic violence for more than 100 years.

    Henson currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and son.

  • Gene Pompa

    Gene Pompa

     Comedian and writer, Gene Pompa's television credits include regular appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," on NBC and a handful of appearances on "The Late, Late Show" on CBS. Other credits include Comedy Central, HBO, Que Locos on Galavision, Showtime's "Latino Laugh Festival," and "In Living Color" on FOX, and Si TV!. Gene co-starred in Paul Rodriguez' "Comedy Rehab" in May, 2009.

    Gene has completed two half-hour solo stand-up specials, "Pompalicious" for Comedy Central and a self-titled half-hour stand-up special for SI! TV, both airing regularly in rotation.

    Gene's offbeat perspective plays extremely well with college age audiences and crosses all racial and ethnic lines. He headlines regularly at the Improvs in Hollywood, Irvine, Brea and Ontario and across the country, doing a stand-up show with great social relevance and irrelevance.

    Gene was born in East Los Angeles and raised in the working-class suburbs of Southern California. He's been a Mexican-American for most of his life, except for a few years during the 70's, when he was a "practicing Chicano." As a product of the multi-ethnic suburbs of Los Angeles, Gene was inspired to utilize universal themes in his stand-up and his writing.

  • Rob O'Reilly

    Rob O'Reilly

    With an appearances on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, NBC’s America’s Got Talent and on the Tonight Show as Jay Leno’s correspondent, 24 year-old Rob O’Reilly is quickly gaining a reputation as an up-and-coming comedian to watch in New York City. It all began in Cleveland, Ohio, where Rob made his stand-up debut at a high school talent show and later won the city’s largest comedy competition. While attending Boston University on an academic scholarship, he became a finalist in the 2005 Boston Comedy Festival and retired any notions of a “normal career.” With his youthful point-of-view making him a favorite at three NACA conferences, Rob now headlines colleges across the country. He booked 27 colleges out of NACA Northeast (2007) alone. Residing in New York, he also enjoys playing in a comedian basketball league and performing sketch comedy with his group The Straightmen.
