- Jason Resler is a stand-up comedian and a writer. He has also done a little bit of bad acting.
Never the less he has performed improv with the late Academy Award winner Robin Williams in front of a sold out theatre. He is a well decorated US Naval war veteran, a father, and he has resigned from the US Postal Service, voluntarily, after numerous disagreements with management.
He listens to 80's metal bands. He is a baseball fanatic, a road warrior, and an alternative highschool spelling bee champion. Hailing from Sacramento Jason is blue-collar from the north, laid back yet enthusiastic, and more self-educated than un-educated.
Jason has wanted to be a comedian ever since he was convinced, mostly by his own coaches, that he'd probably never be able to hit a big league curve ball. Now he headlines at top comedy clubs, resort casinos, universities, and theatres nationwide with over 200 showdates anually since '98.
Trenton Davis is beginning to make his mark on the Chicago comedy scene as one of the funniest comedians alive. Diverse audiences and fellow comedians are drawn to his charismatic style and witty material like a moth to a flame and find themselves wanting more than one set can offer.
Trenton was raised in a dual parent household in a rural county of Greensboro, NC. He attended a high school that was 95% white and then followed that up with attending a historically black college. His unique experiences have shaped his views and created one of the best comedic minds of our generation. Trenton looks at everyday problems and issues (i.e. war on Iraq, dating, politics) and offers hysterical, non everyday solutions. Critics have said the following: "Trenton is funny as hell, definitely star status!"
Trenton has performed at numerous night clubs in the Chicagoland area like the Improv, Riddles, Comedy Shrine and can be seen regularly at the Edge Comedy club in downtown Chicago. His largest credits to date are winning the talent competition for Norwegian Cruise Lines in 2003 and performing at the famous Laugh Factory in Hollywood, CA.
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. Recent headlining dates include Acme Comedy Club in Minneapolis, The Punchline in San Francisco, Rooster T Feathers in Sunnyvale, The Laughing Skull in Atlanta, Cap City Comedy Club in Austin, The Comedy Underground in Seattle, and pretty much every gig in Arizona.
Audiences have never seen anything like an exhaustingly funny Pete George performance. As he pinballs through his act, he leaves them laughing so hard they can barely catch their breath. His stage antics take us on a journey that includes hard hitting jokes, life stories, cartoon voices and even... yes, Rock and Roll.
Mark Stuplin at E! Entertainment Television says, "Pete George is Spastically Funny!" and according to Las Vegas booker Kevin Kearney, "Pete George, in a word...Hilarious! He really is the complete comedy package that you simply must see to believe."
Perhaps this energizer bunny began developing his off-centered and out-of-step approach to life when he was teased as a child, mistakenly labeled learning disabled and placed in special classes. Just minutes into Pete's act he leads us to believe that maybe it wasn't a mistake after all.

Thai Rivera will make you uncomfortable in the best way possible. His politically incorrect style of humor has taken the comedy world by storm.
Having moved from Arizona to LA Thai quickly became a fixture and force on the comedy scene. After becoming a favorite and regular at clubs such as the Hollywood Improv and World Famous Laugh Factory he started to travel across the country in the most unlikely of places, redneck bars.
While Thai is very proud of who and what he is his disarming style and easy going delivery will put you at ease and there is no doubt that by the end of his set you will understand that Thai is comic who happens to be gay and not a gay comic, or as he would put it "a comic who happens to be a fag and not a fag comic."
