     Long Beach, CA native and stand-up comic Jason Collings toured the country and shared the stage with some of the biggest names in comedy early on in his career. Opening for some of the greats turned him into a headliner and respectively, he is now headlining the country on his own bringing his observational and highly conversational trademark comedy to the masses. Proving to be a powerhouse in the field of entertainment, Collings owned the late night stage on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and has showcased his comedic prowess on BET’s Comic View and on VH-1. He is also a frequent staple at The Comedy Store in Hollywood, the Improv comedy clubs, Laugh Factory, The Ice House in Pasadena, and at The Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.

     
    What started as a mere hobby has turned into what is sure to be a life-long career for Jason Collings and if you have the chance to see him live, you are sure to become a fan of his brand of comedy that has crowds roaring with laughter from coast to coast.

  • Joe Praino

    Joe Praino

    I was born in New York City and grew up just north of there in the small hamlet of Katonah, NY. My childhood home was just down the street from where Martha Stewart lives but she never came over and brought me cookies or brownies or pie. Probably because she is a selfish bitch or maybe she just didn't know how close I lived and how much I love baked goods.

    In 1999 while in college in Pennsylvania I began doing stand-up and would drive into New York once a week to perform at the Comic Strip Live. Upon graduation in 2001 I moved to The City where for the next nine years I split my time between drinking, working and performing (although to be honest I was usually drinking while working and performing too).

    During my time in New York my humor was featured as part of the Boston Comedy Festival, the NY Surf Film Festival, the Lighthouse International Film Festival, High Times Magazine and College Sports Television as well as clubs & colleges in and around the tri-state area.

    In 2010 I moved to Los Angeles to continue performing comedy and to chase my Hollywood dream, landing the role of Thomas Magnum in the feature film update of the hit 80's TV show Magnum PI. If you are a producer involved in bringing Magnum to the big-screen please contact me a few weeks before auditions begin so that I have sufficient time to get my mustache to full Selleck.

  • Helen Hong

    Helen Hong is a comedian, TV host, matchmaker, and star of Logo Channel’s reality dating series “Setup Squad.” Helen’s adorable stage presence and mischievous point of view have landed her on The Huffington Post’s Favorite Female Comedians list and a profile in The New York Times. She’s been featured on E!, TLC, and is a frequent host of the PBS syndicated talk show “Asian America.”

    As a standup comedian, Helen’s “cute little Asian girl” demeanor leaves audiences totally unprepared for her naughty and irreverent material. She was a semi-finalist in the 2008 and 2007 NY’s Funniest Stand-Up Competition, was selected for the Emerging Comics Showcase at the 2007 NYC Underground Comedy Festival, and was a semi-finalist in the 2006 California’s Funniest Female Contest. Helen has performed across the country, including at The Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, in Puerto Rico for Armed Services Entertainment, and at dozens of colleges and universities.

    Helen is the creator and host of a popular comedy-matchmaking event called “Laugh Match.” She stars as a professional wing-woman in Logo Channel’s “Setup Squad,” a reality series about a New York dating agency. When she’s not playing cupid or making people laugh, Helen enjoys karaoke, NPR, and cheese.
