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.

Why does Shaun Latham crack us up? Because he lays everything out on the table. Shaun isn’t afraid to go off the cuff and go into any and all members of the crowd and even takes a few jabs at himself! Don’t be offended by his “lazy eye” jokes, because he sure isn’t.
Shaun is what we like to call an empowering comic. He holds nothing back and doesn’t let any limitations get in his way. He’s also LMFAO hilarious, with great riffs on dating, partying, sports and video games, and plenty of other everyday life scenarios (basically all the stuff guys deem important).
With his first big screen appearance in an indy film “Im Not like that no more” along side Paul Rodriguez and Felipe Esparza in 2009, Shaun showed us there is more to his abilities than meets the eye.
Gabriel Iglesias is a huge fan of Shaun’s talents and gave him the “Fluffy” stamp of approval by bringing him on the road for 2 national tours.(Fluffyshop, Stand up Revolution) Where during the same time he made his Network television premiere on Season 1 of Comedy Central’s “Stand Up Revolution", and a recent appearance on season 3 which is slated to air just before summer 2014!
2013 was a good year for Shaun, as he was a featured headliner on NUVOtv’s “Stand up and Deliver” season 2, as well as an invited guest to the first ever Oslo (Norway) Comedy Festival in October!
This comedian always brings new material that’ll have you ROLLING. Shaun is definitely a talent worth keeping an eye on and will make for some great water cooler talk the morning after you see experience his show!
Arriving in Hollywood with $40 dollars to her name, Felicia Michaels quickly found herself honing her comedy skillz at the Laugh Factory, Improv and Comedy Store. She was soon able to abandon her "day job" and support herself entirely via stand-up work, performing across the country on college campuses and "A-room" comedy clubs. She has appeared with her comedy on such networks as MTV, A&E, COMEDY CENTRAL, VH1 and SHOWTIME. Not to mention NBC, ABC and FOX. She soon found herself becoming a COMEDY GRAND CHAMPION on STAR SEARCH. Playing with and defying stereotypes, Michaels initially presented herself on stage as the quintessential "dumb blonde." But after several years of telling jokes in her high heels, she came to the conclusion that if she spent more time writing jokes then blow drying and maintaining her dried out blonde tresses, her new monologue would soon be filled with stronger more insightful reflections, it becomes apparent that intellect and wit are alive and well in this soft spoken talent. She is known to have raised quite a few eyebrows by refusing to allow her gender tame her material. An "Army Brat" who was used to moving about, Michaels never flinched when it came to the rigorous travel schedule that a stand-up comedy career demanded. She enjoyed the raucous laughter and the chasing of planes for tour dates, thirty-five weeks a year. Most importantly, she relished grasping for the exciting moments on stage when sharing clarity and laughter with the audience members in front of her over ideas. The 35 week a year travel schedule resulted in Felicia not only being nominated for an
AMERICAN COMEDY AWARD two years in a row, but also managing to win the award itself for FUNNIEST FEMALE. Along with doing comedy Felicia also found time to attend film school at NYU, which led her to her writing and directorial debut with the short film "In the Weeds," which received a CINE EAGLE AWARD. This led her to work as an actor, assistant director and line producer on Mitch Hedberg's film "Los Enchiladas." A passion for photography has always plagued Felicia as well, leading her to find time to teach underserved children photography along the side of many admired photographers, including Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Clarence Williams. She recently received first place at the PRIX DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE COMPETITION in Paris, for her photo documentary project "Stand Up / Stripped Down." Her project documents the mystery of what happens backstage in the shadows that lead from the green room to the power of the stage, leading one to visually understand the loneliness and process of being a cultural whistleblower. Felicia's comedy CD’s "Lewd Awakenings" and “Chew On This” are now available on iTunes, and landed Felicia on XM Satellite’s list of top 100 jokes. You can also catch Felicia along with co-host Joey Diaz on their popular and RAW-SOME podcast, “Beauty and Da Beast.” Her very recent TV appearances include Stand Up in Stillettos, Nick’s Mom’s Night Out, and a regular on NickJr’s Parental discretion. All this, while raising two young boys as a single mother.
