Ben Gleib

Ben Gleib was just named by TBS one of the "funniest comedians working today." 

He is host of the Emmy nominated comedy game show “Idiotest” in it’s 4th season on GSN, with over 200 episodes. It’s the most watched original program on the network. 

His hilarious hour standup special “Ben Gleib – Neurotic Gangster" is currently airing on Showtime. 

He's also a regular on “The Today Show” with Kathie Lee and Hoda, on their “Guys Tell All” segment, and you may have seen one of his recent appearances on "@Midnight with Chris Hardwick" on Comedy Central.

For years Ben was best known as one of the most frequent regulars on "Chelsea Lately" on E! with over 100 appearances!

His podcast "Last Week On Earth" on the Smodcast Network, debuted on iTunes Comedy at #9, and was #1 on stitcher for 20 straight weeks. 

Gleib is the first comedian to ever live stream a full headline set on Facebook Live, and has been doing for one show in each city on his current tour 100% improvised, each getting hundreds of thousands of views. His act is chock full of hilarious material, but he's also one of the best improvisers in standup comedy. 

An accomplished voice over actor, he voices characters in "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and "The Book of Life," and is one of the stars of "Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie." 

He's been headlining comedy clubs around the globe since 2007, and has toured sold-out arenas with Chelsea Handler and Dane Cook. 

Esquire once called him one of “Six comedians who could be comedy’s next big thing.” The other five were Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Demetri Martin, and Flight of the Conchords. It came true for all of them and it now seems to be Gleib's time.

Tony Rock

Born in the same Brooklyn NY hospital where most of his seven brothers and one sister found their way into the world Tony Rock was born laughing.  He grew up in one of the toughest neighborhoods in New York and developed a natural knack for entertaining.
 
“On a daily basis I’d see a dozen characters (and I emphasize the word characters).  One moment I’d be fighting for my life.  The next minute I’d be laughing hysterically.  There’s a lot of drama in the city and I took it all in.”
 
Tony has been performing for years and he has gained a reputation as a young star in the making.  The Hollywood Reporter recently picked him as one of the hot young talents to come out of New York. 
 
Tony just finished shooting the film “Three Can Play That Game” with Vivica Fox in Atlanta and recently wrapped his fourth season of “All of Us” on the CW playing the role of Dirk Black.  He starred in the films “Life Support” with Queen Latifah and “Homie Spumoni” with Whoopi Goldberg and Joey Fatone.  He is currently featured on the TV screen as the host of TV One’s “The Funny Spot”.
 
Tony's stand-up comedy talents were showcased in the recent revival of “Def Comedy Jam” on HBO.  He was previously the host of “Can You Tell?” on Oxygen and a feature reporter on “Battlebots”.  He’s also been featured on Howard Stern Extra and Craig Kilborn.  Tony can be seen headlining comedy clubs across the country including Caroline’s the Apollo the Laugh Factory and the Comedy Store.
