David Cross
David Cross
David Cross began his professional television career as a writer on "The Ben Stiller Show." It was there that he first met Bob Odenkirk, with whom he would later co-create the award-winning HBO sketch comedy series, "Mr. Show with Bob and Dave." Cross has since starred as Tobias Fünke in "Arrested Development" and has appeared in numerous films including "Men in Black," "Ghost World," 'Scary Movie 2" and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Cross also maintains a notable stand-up career and has released two comedy CDs on SubPop Records: the Grammy-nominated "Shut Up You Fucking Baby!" and "It's Not Funny." In addition to his larger roles, Cross has made cameo appearances on "Just Shoot Me," "The Drew Carey Show," "NewsRadio," "Strangers with Candy" and "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Cross also provided voices for the Xbox game "Halo 2" and appeared on Adult Swim's "Tom Goes to the Mayor" (for which Bob Odenkirk is executive producer).

Joe Pera
Joe Pera
Joe Pera is from Buffalo and has been doing standup in New York since 2009.  Though he misses his family a great deal, Jet Blue’s $59 tickets from JFK to the Buffalo-Niagara airport make returning home for the weekend feasible in both expense and time. Joe has performed his low-key Buffalo Bills and Declaration of Independence jokes in a variety of venues including clubs, theaters, subway platforms, and art galleries that are more of someone’s house than an art gallery, as well as at his own weekly show ‘The Dan + Joe + Charles’ Show’ (every Tuesday at 8pm at the Creek and Cave).
Jo Firestone
Jo Firestone
Jo Firestone is a comedian and producer based in Brooklyn. She has created several poppin' Brooklyn events, including Punderdome 3000, the Annual Inner Beauty Pageant, Bullsh*t History, and Friends of Single People.

He is the author/editor of the stand-up comedy zine "Tight Five" and the host of the Pretty Little Liars-themed podcast "Pretty Little Podcast with Dan Licata."
