Stephen Rannazzisi plays "Kevin," the League Commissioner on FX’s hit show The League. He was the first one of the group to get married and have a kid, which makes him as close as it gets to an adult in this group. He started the League because he thought it would be fun but now has realized it just means babysitting seven more children.
Actor/comedian Rannazzisi got his first taste of television success in 2003 as one of the smart-ass cast members on MTV's Punk'd. After being recognized on stage by Ashton Kutcher at the Comedy Store in West Hollywood, Steve was quickly signed up for the show. Since then Steve has continued to make audiences laugh in television, feature films and on comedy stages across the country.
Stephen grew up in Long Island, and majored in Theater and Film at the State University of New York at Purchase. After graduation and a short-lived desk job, Stephen left the Big Apple and moved out to Los Angeles to pursue his dream career in entertainment.
Upon arrival, his first job was as a doorman at the world-famous Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard. It was there that he honed his skills amongst some of the most prolific comics in the business, such as Eddie Griffin, Joe Rogan and Andrew Dice Clay. He also worked hard on his character acting and improvisational skills with The Groundlings School and Comedy Troupe.
After his success on Punk'd, he was made a series regular on ABC's Big Day, which chronicled all the hilarious happenings of a couple's wedding. Stephen played the wise cracking best-man "Skobo." After that series Stephen was cast yet again by ABC as a lead opposite Heather Locklear in See Jayne Run. Stephen was recently seen opposite Eddie Murphy and Thomas Hayden Church in the Paramount feature film Imagine That. He played "Kulik" the levelheaded partner in the financial investment firm where Eddie Murphy worked. Additionally this year, Stephen starred opposite Kevin James in the Sony Pictures blockbuster comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Stephen was cast as the leading character of "Stuart," the manager of the Pen store in a Mall that gets taken over in a robbery heist.
In addition to performing stand-up, his credits include guest starring in the FOX series Kitchen Confidential, HBO's Sex in the City, and NBC's Third Watch. Stephen has also performed on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, and appeared in the feature films Summer of Sam and For Your Consideration.
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.
