Clownvis Presley: Hailing from the glamorous streets of Hollywood, CA, Clownvis Presley has accomplished more in the past few years than most entertainers achieve in their whole careers. In addition to hosting his own monthly variety show and MCing countless events, his charisma, quick wit, and superior singing voice have earned him opening slots on quite a few high-profile shows. He has toured extensively and performed with superstars such as Little Richard, Neil Hamburger, the Dresden Dolls, Jewel, and The Goo Goo Dolls to name a few -- all of which has earned him the title "King of Clowns." Thanks to a controversial appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent, Clownvis is now familiar to millions of people around the planet. His phenomenal audition must be seen to be believed (maybe even more than once). Clownvis also made a hilarious appearance on BET's Judge Karen's Court in 2010. The King of Clowns is a staple of the current Los Angeles comedy and music scene. Much more than just a party clown, this showman does it all. In addition to hosting music awards, festivals, fundraisers and burlesque revues, Clownvis is also a good guy, donating his talents to charity events and non-profit organizations.
Jerrod Carmichael: 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.
