Bobby Slayton: A true "comic's comic," Bobby Slayton, often referred to as "The Pitbull of Comedy," has been performing his own intense style of stand-up comedy for over 20 years, becoming one of the best known, respected, and energetic comics working today. And there is no stopping “The Pitbull,” this past March, he starred in his own one hour Showtime Special “Born To Be Bobby” which also comes out on DVD on April 27th.
Audiences will recognize Bobby from his scene-stealing roles in movies such as "Get Shorty," "Ed Wood," "Bandits" and "Dreamgirls." He's been seen on dozens of television shows including "The Tonight Show" and "Politically Incorrect." Bobby's many appearances on HBO have included "Comic Relief " and his own stand-up special. He was a series regular on the HBO series "Mind of a Married Man," and played 'Joey Bishop' opposite Ray Liotta and Joe Mantegna in the critically acclaimed film "The Rat Pack."
Slayton's distinctive gravelly voice has often been heard on animated shows like "Dr. Katz'" and "Family Guy," as well as many popular radio shows across the country including Howard Stern, Kevin & Bean, and Tom Leykis.
The NY Daily News called Slayton "Armed and Dangerous" and the Las Vegas Review Journal pointed out that "Slayton's refusal to comprise his art has always made him worth a special trip."
Louis Katz: Louis was born and raised in Los Angeles (not the Valley, not Orange County, but actually in Los Angeles). His comedy career began at the incredibly early age of 9 when as part of a school project he submitted several jokes to “The Tonight Show,” two of which were read on air by Johnny Carson. When Louis moved to Northern California to attend UC Berkeley, he continued to pursue comedy as a writer/performer with the Theater Rice sketch comedy troupe. After graduating, he began performing stand-up throughout the Bay Area and quickly made a name for himself. He is now a professional comedian who can be seen performing at clubs and colleges across the country. In 2005, Louis had a great year, appearing in both the Montreal Comedy Festival and Atlanta’s “Laffapalooza” Comedy Festival. He also made his television debut (not counting the time he went on "The Judge Joe Brown Show") on “Last Call with Carson Daly.”
