Bill Devlin:

“He endears himself to crowds from the moment he steps on stage… funny as hell”
LA Comedy Examiner

Bill Devlin (comedian, actor and writer) was born and raised in St. Paul Minnesota. The youngest of eight children in an Irish Catholic community, serves as fodder in a good deal of Devlin’s reservoir of comedy.

In addition to touring around the country, Bill has also performed at all the major comedy clubs in Southern California. He appears, hosts and produces shows regularly at the world famous Hollywood Improv Comedy Club. Devlin’s long running Comedy & Cocktails show has featured comedy greats Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Margaret Cho and Drew Carey just to name a few.

Hollywood took notice when Devlin performed nine one-hour comedy shows in a two day period at a maximum-security prison. He wrote a first person story of the experience, exclusive to the Los Angeles Times, which was featured on the front page of the calendar section.
This got Devlin his first major feature film development deal.

His unique comedy style is routinely written about in the Irish Herald, The Irish News and The Irish American Post. Did I mention he’s Irish? Devlin has also been profiled on NBC’s Today in LA and on National Public Radio.

He was commissioned to produce, write and host (before a live studio audience) his own TV talk/variety show The Un-Invited Guests with Bill Devlin; which starred comedy legend Dom Deluise.

As an actor, Devlin has been in dozens of television commercials and has starred in several independent feature films (Blood Predator, The God Complex) including the cult hit Rectuma; which screened at the Cannes film festival.

He has worked with such film veterans as Faye Dunaway (Chinatown, Bonnie & Clyde), Sean Young (Blade Runner) and Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters).

Devlin has performed improv & sketch comedy for many years and trained with the father of improvisation himself, Del Close.

He is also an accomplished professional photographer and percussionist
 

Darren Carter:

As soon as Darren Carter (‘The Party Starter’) takes the stage he unleashes a captivating flurry of impersonations, observations, and off-the-wall social commentary that is a comedy experience unlike any other. Darren’s contagious charm and vivid imagery paints a picture, both relatable and unique. No wonder critics nationwide are calling his act ‘a must see’.
With brilliant delivery and an animated style, Darren Carter captivates a crowd and leaves his audiences rolling with laughter, while begging for more. The Los Angeles based comedian has performed all over the world and is a fan favorite at the nation’s most prestigious clubs including the Laugh Factory, Hollywood Improv, and Comedy & Magic Club, to name a few. On the live performance front, he recently rocked the stage in front of 20,000 fans at L.A.’s prestigious ‘POWER 106 Comedy Jam’ alongside Katt Williams, Carlos Mencia, and Russell Peters.

Hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg spotted Darren Carter on television doing his dead-on impersonation of the rapper, which led to performing multiple times at Snoop’s annual family reunion.

The party doesn’t stop there. After appearing in the summer blockbuster ‘Be Cool’ with John Travolta Darren continues to make appearances regularly on television. Whether it’s Comedy Central, BET, NBC, or E!, Darren appeals to a wide audience. And if you think you are hearing Darren’s voice, don’t worry, you aren’t going crazy! He’s been using his dynamic abilities for a number of voiceover roles, including Activision’s top-selling video game, ‘Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland’.

Darren can be seen chatting it up on “Chelsea Lately”, alongside Jay Leno, entertaining on Youtube, or better yet, check him out LIVE at a show near you!
