If you're reading this, you probably are considering going to a comedy show featuring a guy you've never heard of: me.

Well, I'm Tom.

I'm from Boston and I do stand-up comedy for a living. I've won a few competitions including a big one in Canada which was televised in 2010 on "The Comedy Network" (Canadian Comedy Central) and paid me $25,000 that I quickly squandered. I'll always love you, Canada.

Comedy Central in the U.S. picked me for the "Up Next" certified club talent search in 2013, but has yet to put me on their network. What gives? I love you guys, but come on. My parents are gonna die before they get to see me do standup on American television and I'm gonna be sad about it. You have the power to prevent that. I'll be waiting by the phone, expecting your call.

Anyway, I've been a part of the Boston Comedy Festival for the past 10 years, and perform at all the clubs in Boston (except one; ask me, I'll tell you the story). I spend about 30 weeks per year on the road, working at comedy clubs across the country (all over New England, alot of the midwest and the eastern seaboard). In winter, I book all my gigs in Florida and the Bahamas because I despise shivering and shoveling.

I love working at comedy clubs, and I'm really good at it, which is probably why they all keep asking me back every year. By the way, thanks for that, comedy bookers. I love you too.

Unfortunately, I'm lazy and I suck at marketing myself through social media and all that jazz, so I've never really built a big fanbase, (hence your never having heard of me). I sometimes feel like I'm just a little late to the party, too old, and not cool enough to be there; As is apparrent by my use of the phrase "all that jazz". But I'm working on it. Do you want to be my manager?

I've also done some commercials, video shorts, webseries, podasts, radio and tv apearances; not all of which I am proud, but most weren't bad. I'm the founder & commisioner of the Boston Comedy Softball League which is awesome. 5 comedy clubs sponsor 60 comedians playing softball at night on the Charles river in Boston; it's as good as it gets. None of that really says anything about how funny I am on stage, but you might gather that I'm generally liked and respected by my peers, and you'd be right.

If you come to my show, you can expect it to be a little dirty with a sprinkle of mean jokes & sexy stories, a little truth and a couple of lies. I'll make some intelligent arguments, some mindless ramblings and hopefully, by the end, you'll have laughed a bunch and got to know me better. Then we can be friends.

And that'll be the moment when you'll feel good about yourself for taking a shot on the comedy show featuring the guy you've never heard of.

Come see me. I promise to be wicked funny. You probably got the tickets for free anyway.

He has performed on Comedy Central and in comedy clubs and colleges all over the country, drawing his material from "living life as a 27-year-old comedian who wakes up at noon and does whatever he wants."

Porter was recently seen on Comedy Central's "Live Tour" and will be appearing in the new season of their series "Live at Gotham," airing this summer.

You’ve seen her stand up on the Showtime special Red Light Comedy filmed in Amsterdam, TV Guide Channel’s Stand Up in Stilettos and Nuvo TV’s Stand Up and Deliver. She’s also performed at the Aspen Comedy Festival, Moontower Comedy Festival, Lucy Fest, and Gilda’s Fest. Christina headlines comedy clubs in the U.S., Canada and has performed for the troops (Our troops, not THEIRS) in Afghanistan, South Korea, UAE and Africa.

Pazsitzky also provides deeply sarcastic pop culture commentary on several Vh1 countdown shows, TV Guide Channel, SyFy Channel’s Insane or Inspired, Tru TV’s World’s Dumbest and E! Television’s Wildest TV Moments. She hosted the FX series Hitchhiker Chronicles, was a cast member on MTV’s Road Rules Australia (back when it was cool, thank you) and was a regional finalist on Season 6 and 7 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. With a background in animation, Christina has written on and lent her voice to several animated projects, like the feature film TV: The Movie with the boys from MTV’s Jackass and the television series, Trolls. She was given Animation Magazine’s “Up and Coming Writer” Award and most recently wrote on the feature film InAPPropriate Comedy.

Before becoming a Comedian, Pazsitzky studied Philosophy at Oxford University, dropped out of Law School after two WHOLE weeks and was Goth for more years than she’d care to admit. She’s a huge fan of the Pixies and once met Kim Deal.

"[Troy Baxley] is a favorite among stand-ups”

– The Onion

Twice a national finalist at the prestigious HBO Comedy Festival, Troy Baxley is already well-known in comedy circle.

The best restaurants are those where chefs dine on their nights off. Troy Baxley is the comic that other comics, from open-mic’ers to top A-List comedians watch every chance they get. Even Letterman talent scout Eddie Brill calls himself a “huge Troy Baxley fan.” Word.

Others are catching on too. The Onion points out that “…only recently has [Baxley’s] weird brand of impish comedy started to penetrate the mainstream…” and from the way people turn out to see him every time he plays a gig, well, tru dat, yo!

Baxley’s act mirrors the thoughts and attention spans of America’s largest demographic: Lifetime “C” Students. A lifetime “C” student himself, Baxley knows a thing or two about overachievement by way of shortcuts. Remember that annoying kid in grade school who would always remind the teacher to assign homework? Well Baxley was the kid who heckled that kid; and he hasn’t stopped since. Word up, party people.

Sometimes the best acts are the hardest to describe. How do you describe a comic who goes on a five minute love-rant about his girlfriend’s beautiful jacked up buck teeth, then waxes poetic about a side-street meat-jones trying to get some cross-town she-hobo? Hilarious.

Don’t worry, he doesn’t know what it means either, but that’s half the point, and why the Las Vegas Sun said “Don’t let the rational and mild mannered shell fool you, Baxley can get as twisted as they come.”

You simply have to see it firsthand to get the slightest idea of what is going on inside his insanely-funny mind. And people see him again and again. Everywhere he performs, fans return, requesting their favorite bits – which are constantly changing and evolving from the last time they saw Troy Baxley “kickin’ it street.”

Comedian Mike “Meat” Cronin is a self-deprecating guy’s guy who happens to also be a fantastic writer with a truly original voice. Mike spent several years honing his craft at clubs and colleges near his hometown of Cincinnati before relocating to Chicago, where he hosts the popular showcase, “Best Night Ever.” Mike performed at the inaugural Limestone Comedy Festival and has opened for Bo Burnham, Tommy Johnagin, and Tom Segura.

When their schedules permit, Mike and a rotating group of his closest friends in stand-up tour nontraditional venues as the Best Buds of Comedy. Along with Best Buds tourmate and frequent collaborator Alex Stone, Mike co-wrote and co-directed the music video for “The Hipster Song,” which has been viewed over 900,000 times on YouTube.

After attending one of Mike’s live shows, the New Times Broward-Palm Beach raved that his “testosterone-friendly jokes about beards, lazy masturbation, and sh**ting his pants were presented so deftly, he even had the ladies laughing.” Mike is pretty sure that was meant a compliment.

He is currently on the road to support his debut album “Hot For Too Long” (Rooftop Comedy Records), which premiered in the top five of iTunes’ comedy album charts.

You know, an enormous number of comics--including the vast majority of those who pass through the friendly little place we like to call Cap City--maintain career objectives that include aspirations toward acting in a sitcom, or writing for one. But, hell, Robert Hawkins has already done both--in the same series, no less: the late, lamented “Titus.”

Indeed, he was hired as a story editor, which means he wrote a script or two per season, and contributed mightily to the scripts written by his colleagues, adding jokes, improving dialogue, etc. Before long, his work in the writers room so impressed the Fox show’s producers--who also knew of his acting aspirations and abilities (a few years prior, he had landed a development deal with Fox)--that they cast him in a recurring guest role as Titus’ brother-in-law, Michael.

So when it comes to working in network television, while we wouldn’t exactly say “been there, done that”--we’re guessing that under the right circumstances, he might be persuaded to return to such work--he has logged that experience, and his passion for stand-up has never wavered.

Not coincidentally, perhaps, he’s always had a tremendous flair and a considerable gift for it. One measure of this would be his results over the years in comedy competitions, or similar enterprises.

For example, in 1993, he won the California State University Comedy Competition, while the next year he was a finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition, a contest as venerable and prestigious as Funniest Person In Austin. Then, in 1996, he wowed audiences and industry figures in Montreal at the Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival, which led to Robert being awarded the aforementioned Fox development deal.

In 2001, he was voted one of the 25 top comics in the country in a poll of comedy club owners nominating candidates for the American Comedy Awards. And, perhaps needless to say (given all these victories, achievements and accolades), he’s starred in his own Comedy Central half-hour special, appeared on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien,” and a slew of other TV shows.

Still, when all is said and done about his work--cable TV, network TV, writing, acting, etc.--Robert Hawkins’ first love is performing comedy in a club in front of a live audience, and obviously he’s pretty damn good at it. Do you want to miss that? Didn’t think so.

Dave Waite’s oddball stories and rants have made him a favorite at clubs around the Midwest. A square peg who found happiness when he stopped trying to fit in, Dave’s hilarious tales of personal failure have won the love of audiences young and old alike.

Although Dave is known for his constant grin, the first few years his post-college life didn’t give him much to smile about. After graduating from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in the lucrative field of geography, Dave drifted through a series of jobs ranging from call center representative to substitute teacher, experiences that later became a part of his act.

On his days as a substitute teacher, Dave says, “My kids would come up to me and say, ‘Mr. Waite, you’re going to die from smoking!’ I was like, ‘No, Timmy, more like drinking!’”

After being fired from nearly every job and having zero luck at finding love, Dave’s self-esteem hit rock bottom in early 2004. His salvation came in the form of a newspaper ad for a stand-up comedy class at the Funny Bone in Newport, KY. Dave took the class and fell in love with stand-up, quickly gaining a reputation amongst both comedians and audiences as one of the Midwest’s wittiest and most unpredictable young comics.
