T.J. MILLER is one of the most sought after comedians in the comedy world, but not in the drama world, or the finance world. He was named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” and EW's “Next Big Things in Comedy”. Miller’s voice stars in Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated feature, BIG HERO 6. You may recognize his non-animated face and body from his roles in FOX’s big screen comic book adaptation of DEADPOOL, the highest grossing R-rated film of all time, 2014’s surprise indie hit TRANSFORMERS 4, and Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series SILICON VALLEY, now in its third season, for which he received the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Comedy. His podcast "Cashing in with T.J. Miller" on nerdist.com is listened to by 12 and ½ people, and he is a nationally touring standup artist, crisscrossing the country listening to Kris Kross (he's also done shows in the U.K. and Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico did not go well)). He has been performing his absurdist observational standup act for over 10 years, and has never gone to the bathroom in his pants on stage. His hour-long Comedy Central stand-up special T.J. MILLER: NO REAL REASON and hip-hop/pop/folk music album "The Extended Play E.P.", an E.P. with 41 tracks, and the ILLEGAL ART REMIXTAPE are all available now. He hosted Comedy Central’s MASH-UP, a mashup of standup, sketches and visualizations, and has appeared on CHELSEA LATELY more than most women his height. He got his start touring with Second City in Chicago and improvising with Annoyance Theater, iO, and managers at electronics stores asking why he was late and smelled like gin. Miller has been in a number of major studio films including CLOVERFIELD, SHE'S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, ROCK OF AGES, OUR IDIOT BROTHER, YOGI BEAR 3D (Ranger Jones, his greatest role to date), UNSTOPPABLE, and GET HIM TO THE GREEK. Miller also talks like an old drag queen after a hard night of chain smoking, and thus voiced the character Tuffnut in the Oscar-nominated animated film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. He voices Robbie from GRAVITY FALLS on Disney, Tuffnut in the Netflix HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON TV series, and GORBURGER, a very strange show you just have to google to understand. T.J. recently starred in OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY, opposite Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston and will be seen in 2018's READY PLAYER ONE directed by Steven Spielberg. He resides in Hollywood, California, where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world. He is a comedian.
Roy Wood Jr
Though he can currently be seen on the TBS sitcom ‘Sullivan & Son’ Roy’s journey did not start there. Named by Entertainment Weekly as one of 12 comics to watch in 2009, Roy has been featured on the new season of CBS’ The Late Show w/ David Letterman, HBO's Def Comedy Jam, TV One’s ‘The Funny Spot w/ Tony Rock’, BBC’s The World Stands Up-London, CBS’s Late Late Show w/ Craig Ferguson, NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and Comedy Central’s Bob & Tom Comedy Tour. He’s also showcased at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival and is a regular guest on the E! Network’s Chelsea Lately.
Janelle James is a New York based comedian that can be seen on NBC Seeso's Night Train with Wyatt Cenac, @midnight on Comedy Central and Uproarious on Fuse (2016). She was included in the Just For Laughs Montreal's New Faces category for 2016, named one of the The 50 Most Funny People in Brooklyn 2016 and has been featured for her outstanding performance ability in the The New York Times, Portland Tribune and Time Out Magazine.
Hosted by Rob Haze
In a short amount of time, Rob Haze has become a rising star in stand up comedy. The Atlanta native began his stand up journey while studying Political Science, at the University of Georgia. There he would host and perform at many talent shows, pageants, and step shows. He went on to win the Athens Last Comic Standing contest. Robert moved back to his hometown Atlanta, Georgia to further his comedy career. With a sense of humor that is full both of clever wordplay and references to popular culture, there is no wonder why Rob has become a favorite at the Laughing Skull Lounge, Punchline, and Uptown Comedy Corner. Rob uses his gift, to help others as well; in 2012 he won the Autism Laughs charity competition. He also was a writer and star of a (local) sketch comedy show called Cabbagetown. In 2012, Rob began to branch out from the Southeast, and was a finalist in the Bay Area Black Comedy Competition inOakland, California. He was a 2012 Finalist in the NBC Stand Up for Diversity contest and will be joining them on their 2013 college tour. There are no racial or age limits to Rob’s comedy as he likes to bring people together rather than tear them apart.
