About Jim Breuer
Jim Breuer – the freewheeling, New York bred comic storyteller who made the list of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Standups of All Time” – is hotter than ever! A global touring sensation and regular presence on radio and television, his rabid audience is filled with “lifetimers” – once folks see him live, they’re hooked. Breuer came to national attention during his seasons on Saturday Night Live (1995-98), during which time he starred alongside Dave Chappelle in the stoner comedy flick Half Baked, which featured cameos by Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, and Tommy Chong. He continued his meteoric rise with Comedy Central specials such as Hardcore (2002) and Let’s Clear The Air (2009), one of the highest rated comedy specials in the network’s history. His next special And Laughter For All (2013), became the highest rated original comedy special on EPIX, earning it’s spot as a family favorite for its relatable and multi-generational humor. His latest special Comic Frenzy (2015) is available on Amazon Prime. Over the years, he has become something of a multi-media sensation, appearing on shows such as Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Sirius XM’s The Howard Stern Show, as well as hosting MTV’s popular Beach House and Sirius XM’s Fridays with Jim Breuer. He currently hosts The Jim Breuer Podcast, which is available on iTunes and at JimBreuer.com.

About Jessica Kirson
Jessica Kirson is a powerhouse on stage. Jessica’s act is a hilariously relatable performance of sheer silliness, vulnerability and ridiculous characters. Her countless comedic character videos have racked up over 30 million views on social media. Her audience is multigenerational creating an excuse for large groups of friends and families to spend a night out together. In an era where only 10% of all touring comedians are female, Jessica stands out as one of the strongest comedians regardless of gender. As her friend Dave Attell says, “I’d hate to follow her.” This year, Jessica will be featured playing herself on the HBO series Crashing with Pete Holmes. She recently served as a consultant, producer and writer as well as acted in the Robert De Niro’s film “The Comedian.” She has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon”, “The View, and “Kevin Can Wait.” She was recently awarded “Best Female Comic” by the MAC  Association in New York City and received the prestigious Nightlife Award for “Best Stand-up Comedian.” And in her spare time, Jessica is a regular contributor to the “Howard Stern Show, where she produces and stars in prank calls for the program.

About Randy Feltface
Randy Feltface has spent fifteen years carving out a unique niche on the international comedy circuit. He was nominated for best comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, played an eight week off-Broadway season in New York City, featured several times at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and his special Randy Writes a Novel is a pirated YouTube sensation. He penned and starred in his own ABC scripted comedy Ricketts Lane alongside his skinny comedy husband Sammy J, a role that earned him an AACTA award nomination for best comedy performance. His occasional guest appearances on light entertainment television programs in his native Australia have earned him much respect and an average income and he most recently infiltrated American television as a contestant on NBC’s Bring The Funny. His live show is a high energy existential crisis full of the kind of amusing anecdotes and biting observations that have earned him the title of World’s Most Entertaining Non-Human Comedian.
