Hampton Yount: I was born in Virginia, started comedy in DC, aged four years, and now live in Los Angeles. I won the DC Improv Comedy Competition in 2008 and other lesser important comedy contests in VA. I soon made a name for myself as the premiere contest winner and cheater of DC. I am very proud of the peer group I started out with in DC and think they will all be comedy heros! You must feel foolish for not having seen them. I've been invited to the Bridgetown Comedy Festival twice now and picked out of 600 hundred comics to compete in the Laughing Skull Festival where I made it to the semi-finals.
The webcomic that I make with my brother Clay Yount www.robandelliot.com has an awesome fanbase and has been a critics' favorite on occasion. We've been doing it for 6 years. If it were a child it would finally be of the age to realize the world is fucked up.

Cristela Alonzo: ONCE UPON A TIME...
I started doing stand up in Dallas, TX. I moved to Los Angeles in 2005 and got my first break in 2006 when I was hired to write for a Comedy Central show. In 2007, I was featured on Comedy Central's "Live At Gotham."
I was also a semifinalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing," in 2010 and that appearance led me to 2011: my busiest year to date. I was a part of Showtime's "Legally Brown," a stand-up special featuring a diverse collection of comedians that premiered in May and was on Gabriel Iglesias' "Stand Up Revolution," in October on Comedy Central. Aside from stand-up, you might've also caught me on an episode of FX's "Sons of Anarchy."
This past February, I showcased at NACA (National Association of Campus Activities) Nationals and was the most requested act of the convention. As a result, this fall I will be doing shows at more than 100 colleges across the country.
Aside from stand-up, I've won awards for short films I've written, including Best Film at the Boston Comedy Festival for a musical I wrote ("TGIF: The Musical") and had one of my sketches named Latina.com's "Five Funniest Sketches Of The Decade."
