Night Train with Wyatt Cenac

Ari Shaffir
Ari Shaffir
Amongst other works, Ari Shaffir is probably most well-known for a series of comedy works entitled "The Amazing Racist," the title is a play on that of the reality television show The Amazing Race. In these shorts, "The Amazing Racist" is seen acting in a manner which is overtly and ironically racist. Shaffir filmed many of his offensive encounters for the DVD National Lampoon's Lost Reality. They were then ripped to the internet by hundreds of different nerds and seen by millions of people. Watching the videos makes many people laugh and many people very angry. Shaffir gets death threats at least once a week and loves them all. If you haven’t seen the videos, Google him. Please don’t watch them at work because you’ll get fired. Shaffir has also been featured on the HBO show Down and Dirty with Jim Norton, TBS’ show Minding the Store, ESPN Classic’s Cheap Seats: Without Ron Parker, Latino Laugh Festival on Si TV, has made a few appearances on The Opie and Anthony Show, including the greatest day of radio of all time, Babybird, and you probably have seen him on one of the dozens of national commercials he has whored himself in over the years.

Comedians, actors, and writers The Lucas Brothers (Keith and Kenny Lucas) continue their rise as two of the freshest, most dynamic new faces on the comedy scene. Born in a ghetto in Newark, NJ, and raised in a ghetto in High Point, North Carolina, the identical twins now appear in movies and on TV, and perform standup comedy all over the country; even in ghettoes.

Named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch of 2014, they can currently be seen in the highly-anticipated summer comedy feature film 22 Jump Street alongside Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, and Ice Cube. They are also the creators of the animation series Lucas Bros. Moving Co., which premiered as part of Fox's Animation Domination Hi-Def block on January 11, 2014. The brothers voice the series’ main characters, narrating hilarious, absurdist tales with, as The New York Times praised, “a disarming sweetness and a clever, stylized casualness.” They are currently writing the series’ second season. Additionally, they are currently developing their own live action series with the network.

The brothers host the web series The Super Late Morning Show on ComedyCentral.com, which premiered in February 2013. They are also currently shooting the sketch comedy show Friends of the People, which they co-created, and will star in and Executive Produce. The series will premiere on TruTV in September 2014.

Keith and Kenny made their latenight debut when they performed standup on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon in 2012. They were featured in Rolling Stone Magazine's "Hot List," appeared on the cult hit TV show Arrested Development (Netflix), Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, and HBO's Funny As Hell. They were also NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity finalists, as well as standouts on the New Faces show at the prestigious Montreal “Just For Laughs” Comedy Festival.

They are firm believers in the legalization of marijuana.

Bret “The Hitman” Hart is their favorite person of all time.
