Spencer James’s comedy career started very early on, namely as an eleven year old fat kid getting picked on by school bullies while also being ignored by seemingly every girl in his vicinity.

Spencer holds the 2014 Winner title of the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, Nevada. He has gritted his comedy teeth on bars and comedy clubs across America, including performances for the fisherman of Dutch Harbor, AK, made famous by the hit TV show “Deadliest Catch,” Laughs TV features of Fox TV, and also for American troops stationed in Pearl Harbor, HI.

Spencer currently resides in Denver, CO, where beautiful women abound, but as a former fat kid he finds it difficult to relate to them, unless it involves complaining about clothes that just never seem to fit properly.

His show is mainly his warped reactions to first time relationships, a result of “fat kid syndrome” he’s had throughout his adult life, and how now he’s taking the Ugly Duckling persons to the stage. He believes he’s sensitive to a woman’s needs, but, due to many past failures, he also somehow winds up saying the most insensitive thing as the worst possible moment.

Why does this happen? Guess you’ll find out at the show.

Jesse is known for his performances loved by crowds around the world, and for his writing style admired and respected by comedians at every level. Spawned from a family of lawyers, professional jugglers, an army ranger and a circus clown; Joyce developed his own unique brand of comic charisma. He brings this charisma to the standup comedy stage by entwining distinctively intelligent material and high energy performance.

In television, Joyce has made appearances on BBC’s How Clean is Your House?, Date Night for AMC, Comedy Central’s inaugural season of Live at Gotham, Entertainment Tonight, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’s Pass The Mic and Stand-Up 360 with Caroline Rhea. In 2010 he was a top 20 Semi-Finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Currently, Joyce can be seen regularly on History Channel’s I Love The 1880’s and RedEye with Greg Gutfield on the Fox News Network; where he brings his acerbic wit to bear on the events of the day.

In October 2009, Jesse starred in Stags, a feature film produced by Ben Barenholz of Raising Arizona, Barton Fink and Requiem for a Dream. The dark comedy is about four permanent New York City bachelors, and is available on DVD and Netflix.

Since 2007, Jesse had been the behind-the-scenes writing half of the long time Comedy Central Roaster: late, great Greg Giraldo. Jesse partnered with Greg to write for Comedy Central and Joel Gallen’s Tenth Planet Productions, including the Comedy Central Roast(s) of David Hasselhoff, Joan Rivers, Larry the Cable Guy, Bob Saget and Flavor Flav. His roast writing talents were also utilized for the TBS Celebrity Roast of Cheech and Chong. Success writing for Comedy Central programs led to his being requested to write on Comedy Central’s Burned! The Roasts’ Most Outrageous Moments and for The Comedy Central Roast(s) of Trump, Charlie Sheen and Roseanne. Joyce’s writing has also been utilized by Joan Rivers on TV Land’s How’d You Get So Rich? He was a staff writer for the well-received first season of The Burn with Jeff Ross on Comedy Central and has been hired to write for the 85th Academy Awards. His work in TV, Radio and Print advertising has won him several American Advertising Awards, which span as far back as 2001.

An established performer with the USO, he has performed overseas on numerous occasions. In addition to his busy club and college schedule, Joyce has appeared at the TBS Comedy Festival in Las Vegas and in 2008, was selected to participate in the Great American Comedy Festival, a festival sprung of Johnny Carson’s legacy. When not headlining clubs or performing all around New York City, he can be seen in theaters as part of The Comedy Addiction Tour where comics bring humor and poignancy to the struggles of addiction.

Jesse resides in New York City with a tiny dog named Petey and about 2 dozen fish whom he hasn’t bothered to name because they likely wouldn’t come when called anyway.

Chris James is a comedian born and raised in Vancouver. He does stand up comedy specifically, in that he tells jokes that are generally pre-prepared, and most often he does this in a club that has been designated a ‘comedy club’. Chris has done his stand up comedy the last three years at the Vancouver Comedy Festival, and has opened for many comedians much better and more famous than he is over nearly six years of performing.

I also- sorry, he also has had his comedy (stand up) featured on the CBC radio program ‘LOL’, and on the podcast ‘Put your hands together’ recorded at the super rad UCB theatre in Los Angeles (Hollywood(California)). Chris also hosts a live talk show called Talk Showcase that has in the past been sporadic, but will soon be regular and monthly at the Little Mountain Gallery on Main street.

He usually has a beard.

Chris used to do a podcast/web series/podcast again for a website called ‘The Dependent.’ It was all kinds of fun. You can listen to and watch all of the old episodes. We suggest starting right from episode 1.

Hari Kondabolu is a Brooklyn-based, Queens-raised comic who has been described by Timeout NY as “smart, analytical and rising.” He has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and John Oliver’s New York Standup Show and the 2007 HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. His Comedy Central Presents half-hour television special debuted on the network in February 2011.

He is currently a writer for FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, set to make its debut in August 2012. He will also be appearing on the third season of John Oliver’s New York Standup this summer.

He made his UK television debut on BBC 3’s Russell Howard’s Good News in April 2011, which preceded a month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. He then had a regular segment on the first series of BBC3′s “Live at the Electric” starring Russell Kane. He has also appeared on Episode 69 (Live Portland Super Show) of WTF with Marc Maron.

When in New York City, he co-hosts the mostly improvised, monthly talk show The Untitled Kondabolu Brothers Project with his younger brother Ashok (“Dap” from hip hop group Das Racist). He also wrote the cover story for Spin Magazine about Das Racist last November.

Hari is also a former video blogger for WORLD COMPASS, a joint initiative between WGBH Boston, PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Hari was born and raised in Queens, NY. He went to Townsend Harris High School and the school’s mascot, “Hari the Hawk,” was named after him during his senior year. (He sometimes fears that his greatest achievement was accomplished at 17.) He also attended both Bowdoin College and Wesleyan University, graduating from the former institution with a B.A. in Comparative Politics in 2004. A former immigrant rights organizer in Seattle, Hari also earned a Masters in Human Rights from the London School of Economics in 2008, writing a merit- earning dissertation entitled “Mexican Returnees as Internally Displaced People: An Argument for the Protection of Economic Migrants Under the UN Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement.” This is, by far, the least funny thing he’s ever written.

A former resident of Vancouver, Canada, Pete made his first forays into Hollywood after a wildly successful Just For Laughs Festival in Montréal, where he signed a deal with Warner Brothers Television after appearing on one of the smaller shows. Soon after Pete made his network debut on NBC’s Friday Night and followed that with the lead in the independent film Mixed Signals with Jason London and Brook Langdon.

On the road Pete performed across the United States for the Improvisation comedy clubs in his spare time. When he returned, Pete started working with HBO independent productions in a new development deal and landed a spot at the USA Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen Co, as one of the new faces. Here he was named one of the comics to watch by The Hollywood Reporter.
Pete also starred in his first half hour special for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in an episode of Comics, he followed this up the following year with an hour long special for The Comedy Channel’s Comedy Now series. He has also performed on several Just for Laughs Gala shows on CBC.

“Pete’s relaxed and insightful performance at the Improv brought the crowd what they had been waiting for all night” – National Post (USA)

“By far the breakout performer this year at Just for Laughs, but more importantly made my list of best jokes of the fest twice!” – The Montreal Gazette (CAN)

Pete performed on The Late Show with Craig Kilborn (CBS), and has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, two episodes of Comedy Central’s Remix, Open Mike with Mike Bullard (CTV), National Lampoon’s Funny Money (GSN), and in the Showtime film The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie with Gena Rowlands and James Caan.

He bagged a starring role opposite Ed Byrne in BBC4′s Sex Bombs and appeared on Channel 4′s Brighton Best of the Fest.

In his hit solo Edinburgh show, Naked Pictures of My Life (2009), Pete illustrated the embarrassing developments of his life and how he reached his ‘happy-apathy’ attitude toward life. The show garnered rave reviews and earned him a nomination as Best Newcomer, one of the most coveted awards in comedy. He returned to Edinburgh in 2010 with Pete’s on Earth. The show pushed his own boundaries and garnered even more 4 and 5 star reviews. A whirlwind year followed; signing with the prestigious Collective Agency in Los Angeles following another great JFL performance, as well as tours of South Africa, New Zealand, Mumbai, the Middle East and Europe. He returned to the UK to feature on Channel 4′s Best of the Fest and Showtime’s Live from Amsterdam. Pete was part of Canada’s Snowed In Comedy Tour in 2011 and 2012, performing to sold out crowds across the country (and getting a little skiing in there too from time to time).

He is an exceptional live talent, in demand with live, festival and corporate bookers all over Europe. Pete appeared at the Altitude Comedy Festival in Mayrhofen, Austria in 2012, as well as returning to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his latest and most challenging show Utopian Crack Pipe (2012).
