If the adage is true — that tragedy plus time equals comedy — then Ryan Sickler has paid his dues on the left side of the equation. Born in Baltimore, Ryan lost his father when he was 16. After that, he bounced from one relative to another. And while his early years might have seemed rocky, that tumultuous childhood gave him both fodder for material and armor against the relentless onslaught that is life as a standup comic.
His television appearances include The Pete HolmesShow, Comedy Central’s Tosh.O, Live At Gotham, Cutman and The Late Late Show.
Beyond standup, Ryan Sickler is an engaging storyteller. You can catch him every Tuesday (Toozdee) on his podcast, The CrabFeast. Inspired by his hometown, the show celebrates the things Ryan loves most — storytelling, family, friends and laughter.
Jacob Sirof was born and raised in San Francisco, California during the "Comedy Boom" of the 1980's.
There were few places more booming than San Francisco, so nobody was too surprised when Jacob announced at an early age that he wanted to be a comedian when he grew up. Today, Jacob still hasn't grown up, although he is a comedian. As a young adult, he started doing stand-up in his hometown, and quickly joined the ranks of a promising young crop of local talent, which has since been dubbed "The New Wave" of San Francisco comedy. In 2006, Jacob was selected to perform at the prestigious "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Montreal, Canada, where he got very drunk and high with comedians and industry-types from all over the world.
His television appearances include "Live At Gotham" on Comedy Central and "Down and Dirty With Jim Norton" on HBO. He has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle, as well as the Hollywood Reporter, and performs across much of the known galaxy. Jacob currently resides in Santa Monica, California with his wife, fellow comic Sherry Sirof, and their daughter, Wynter Moon.
He would like to do comedy for ever and ever, yet he is a mere mortal, and will most likely die someday.
Since Allison was able to talk, she has wanted to entertain. Then, as a teenager, with her piano-teaching mother's encouragement, she picked up a guitar. Allison started honing her skills at writing lyrics, especially parody songs. After moving to LA in 2007, she formed her parodies into a stage-ready set. Her first taste of stand-up was at The World Famous Hollywood Improv in December 2008. Allison's raunchy yet sweet and witty style made her an instant hit. Soon after, she entered in the Fresh Faces of Comedy Contest and finished in the top 3 out of the 50 comics that competed. She has since been invited to perform at such festivals as the Hollywood Comedy Festival, the San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival (in 2011, 2012, and 2013) , and the Boca Raton Winter Comedy Festival (in which she was the first place winner). Allison also won the Rated X Factor Comedy Competition and tours the country as the 2013 Strip Club Comedian of the Year. On top of that, as a perfect juxtaposition, she is also the Voice of "Flower Kid" in 20th Century Fox's animated movie EPIC.
