Andy Peters is a stand-up comedian who enjoys getting to the audience like no other. Along with his typically irreverent topics, he has the skills to go off script and still get the laughs. Fearless and often off-the-cuff, Peters has toured the country performing in both big cities and small towns. He won the Rocky Mountain Laugh-Off, was a Finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition and participated in the San Francisco Comedy Competition, D.C. Comedy Fest, and Boston Comedy Festival. After years as a stand-out in the Seattle comedy scene, Peters now calls Los Angeles his home.
London born Matt Kirshen’s precision wit has earned him an impressive reputation on the international comedy circuit. Starting his comedy career in the UK, he first became known to American audiences as a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He has also appeared on Comedy Central’s @Midnight, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Paul Provenza’s Green Room on Showtime, and The Nerdist, and is one of the regular guest co-hosts of StarTalk with Neil deGrasse Tyson. He is currently a writer for The Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central, for which he was nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award, and also wrote for, and appeared on How To Build… Everything on the Science channel, and Comedy KnockOut on TruTV.
Frank Lucero just returned from the Crown Royal Latin Kings of Comedy tour, hosted by Paul Rodriguez. Lucero performs for the Military as well, recently in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He visited the Military and civilians in the Middle East on the Combat Comedy Tour in 2006. Lucero is quickly becoming one of the top comedians to see. He will riff about our everyday routines we call work, to breaking that routine by having fun and to being with family and playing our guitars.
Marc Yaffee was the founder and co-star of the Pow Wow Comedy Jam, featuring performers at the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), the National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA), and top tribal casinos across the land. Marc Yaffee’s TV appearances include PBS, The Latino Laugh Festival, Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen and FNX Network’s, First Nations Comedy Experience. His comedy special, Marc My Words, is a mainstay on the streaming site Nativeflix.com. Marc Yaffee has performed six times overseas for Armed Forces Entertainment. .
Producer and host Jason Love has appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, America’s Got Talent, and over 20 national broadcasts.
