Chris Porter is an American comedian and finalist on season 4 of Last Comic Standing. He has also appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, Comedy Central’s Live Tour, and appeared on Live at Gotham. In 2009, Porter made an appearance on Comedy Central Presents. In recent years, Porter has opened for Country/Rock Singer Kid Rock. His comedy special “Chris Porter: Ugly and Angry” is available for streaming and is rated one of the top Stand-Up comedy specials on Netflix.
Bronston Jones’ first CD, “She Has to Take This Call” was recorded at Venice Underground Comedy. Bronston created VenUground with fellow comedian Matt Devlin in 2011. It quickly became one of LA’s top stand-up shows (LA Weekly: Best of LA 2012). Each week, a SRO crowd fills an historic Prohibition Speakeasy to laugh. Bronston is developing a following in the UK. He’s spent the last three summers doing Edinburgh Fringe, where he garnered four and five star reviews. He’s played some of UK’s top clubs. Bronston is a guest on numerous radio shows & podcasts, and he sometimes blogs for Huffington Post Comedy.
Laurie Kilmartin spent her first 10 years as a standup in San Francisco, the second 10 in New York City and now lives in LA. She currently writes for CONAN on TBS. When home in LA, Laurie does standup about 3-4 times a week. She uses her 10 hiatus weeks each year to go back on the road.
Tony Vinh: Tony is often described by fellow comedians as the Asian Chris Rock, not because his delivery can sometimes sound like the legendary comedian, but because Tony’s comedy offers a similarly sharp, clever and absurd commentary on life– only from the point of view of an Asian-American who grew up in the Midwest. Tony does stand-up all over the US, performing at iconic comedy clubs such as The Comedy Store, The Hollywood Improv and The Ice House Pasadena. He has also performed internationally in England, Ireland and Canada. And he’s been a crowd favorite at the Funniest Person in Austin contest, Out of Bounds Comedy Festival and the The Detroit Comedy Festival.
