Monty Franklin is an Australian born stand-up comedian now based out of LA. He has performed hundreds of shows all over Australia, New Zealand, on P&O Cruise ships throughout the South Pacific and a handful of major comedy clubs in Los Angeles.
Monty’s numerous television performances include Channel 10s The Circle, Foxtel’s Stand Up Australia, and as part of The Comedy Channel’s special – The Best Of Stand Up and Comedy Gold. Performing sold out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2010, he received wide recognition and praise for his shows The Full Monty, Monty McFly.
Monty performed at the 2009 Carols By Candlelight to a crowd of 15,000 at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, and MC’d for 12,000 music goers at the 2010 and 2011 Pyramid Rock Festivals.
Monty has made three pilots for his own TV Shows with Fremantle Media and Australia’s largest network Channel 7 that consisted of a mix of sketch, stand-up and travel shows.
Monty’s versatile humor and fresh approach has seen him gain a lot of exposure in his relatively short career, with sold out live shows throughout the country, TV appearances and a successful weekly radio show on Australia’s most widespread Radio Network Austereo.
Tim wasn't supposed to be a comedian. A biologist by training, he graduated magna cum laude from UC San Diego with honors in biology. He went on to complete his PhD at UC Davis. He spent years developing simulation and analytical models of population dynamics before he discovered that this bored him to tears. When he tried comedy for the first time the tears stopped.
Tim has become an underground sensation with over 3 million views on his YouTube videos. Piggybacking that success, Tim took the show on the road selling out shows from New York to San Diego. Audiences hungry for comedy that is smart and funny flocked to the show. Lee's comedy uses scientific phenomena and tools to explain everything from the hair that collects on a bar of soap to how his standards drop rapidly with abstinence.
Joe Sib, founder and co-conspirator of SideOneDummy Records for over twenty years has quickly climbed up the ranks of the comedy scene. In 2011 his nationally acclaimed, “California Calling: Growing up Punk,” solidified his success as comedic storyteller. In a twist of irony, his tales of youthful rebellion and irritating his own parents now serve his audience a blend of karmic stand up comedy as he attempts to navigate his own role as a father of two. In 2014, Joe launched the monthly SideOneDummy Storytellers show in Hollywood. He has performed at the SF Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, FYF Fest, the Laugh Factory and Improv Comedy clubs. When he’s not lamenting his lost youth or fatherhood, Joe hosts the Complete Control radio show on 98.7FM in Los Angeles and nationally select cities.
