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).
Prolific blogger, gleeful Twitterer and funny local fixture Greg Johnson exhibits a combo of smarts and amiability every time he steps onstage. Anyone unfamiliar might start with Web series Stand Up Apartment, which began as a sort of Shit Comics Say a couple of years before that was the trend.
Shalewa Sharpe got her start in Atlanta but now resides in Brooklyn. She has joked on extremely popular live shows (Night Train with Wyatt Cenac, Comedy Night at The Knitting Factory) and at festivals (Brooklyn Comedy Festival, Atlanta’s Red Clay Comedy Festival). She co-produces and hosts “Thug Passion Presents,” a lively table read and celebration of classic black movies. Her debut album, “Stay Eating Cookies,” on Rotknee Presents Records came out this year.
George Peyton Gordon III (yes that is his real name) is a comedian from Dale City, VA, (or as he likes to call it, the great state of Virginia). He currently lives in New York City where you can see his stand-up almost every night, then argue with him about things like which is the better Weezer album—Pinkerton or Blue (definitely Pinkerton)—or why Alien is better than Aliens (because it just is). He has been in the New York Underground Festival, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, OR, The Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, TX and his writing has been included in the blog Rock Bottom. He has an unhealthy obsession with using parentheses.
Selena Coppock is a standup comedian, writer, and storyteller based in New York City. Her debut book, THE NEW RULES FOR BLONDES, ia a collection of essays celebrating and subverting the blonde stereotype and will be released with HarperCollins April 23, 2013. Her writing has also been featured on TheFrisky, McSweeney's the Collared Sheep, and Rock Bottom Stories. Selena's storytelling abilities have been showcased at shows throughout New York and Boston, including RISK! (live and show and podcast), Stripped Stories, and, at The Moth Story Slam (where she tied for 1st place with her "After Hours" story in March 2011). Selena has been seen telling jokes and doing characters on VH1, RooftopComedy.com, CollegeHumor.com, TheApiary.com, ComedySmack.com, PMSports.com, and elsewhere. She has also been featured in the Boston Globe, LA Weekly, Boston Metro, and the Boston Phoenix. She has trained at ImprovOlympic (Chicago), Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (NY), and ImprovAslyum (Boston) and has earned spots in a multitude of comedy festivals, including the Boston Comedy Festival, NY Comedy Contest, Detroit Comedy Festival, North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, Out of Bounds Festival, Ladies Are Funny Festival, and the Women In Comedy Festival.
KATINA CORRAO is an actress, comedian, and writer living in NYC. She just finished a dream job writing questions for The Newlywed Game and warming up The Jenny McCarthy Show! You may have seen Katina on Comedy Central, OWN, HBO, College Humor, Barely Political (with the Key of Awesome), Late Night Republic, and on VH1‘s Big Morning Buzz Live and Best Night Ever. She’s been nominated for an ECNY for Best Female Comedian and has appeared in numerous web series including Jack In A Box (Winner of Best Web Series at the 2010 NYTF) and Kid Farm! on ComedyCentral.com. She has an award-winning series of her own called The Good Neighbor Minute, which explores Katina’s desire to be the nosey neighbor in a sit-com. She has been featured in Time Out New York, Reader’s Digest, Broadway World, and in New York Magazine’s Vulture section. She loves seltzer water with lots of ice and is literally the only comedian in New York City (and probably Los Angeles) who is writing a sit-com pilot starring herself.
