Alex Stone is a comedian from Cincinnati, Ohio who now makes his home in Chicago, Illinois. His hard work and determination have led him from his early days as an absurdist joke writer to his current role as one of the most impressive young storytellers in comedy. In addition to the deeply personal material that has become the cornerstone of his act, Alex has written jokes for nationally touring comedians and this year was one of the top one hundred comics selected for season eight of NBC's Last Comic Standing. Also in 2014, Alex was invited to preform at the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal for their New Faces of Comedy showcase. He has also appeared at Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, Indiana as well as being selected to participate in the 2013 Best of the Midwest competition at Gilda's LaughFest in Grand Rapids, Michigan. His prolific nature and originality has also made him a regular at the Chicago Laugh Factory and earned him an appearance on the Independent Film Channel. Alex was also recently featured in both the Chicago Tribune and the Huffington Post. Thank you all for reading this!

A recipient of life saving heart surgery, John Roy grew up an only child in Chicago's ethnically diverse Rogers Park neighborhood. 

John's parents were an ex Jesuit who worked for Chicago's urban Loyola University, and a psychotherapist, who infused a love of the arts and philosophy into the boy from an early age.  He repaid their efforts by becoming a stand up comedian.

John began his career performing in independent rooms in Chicago.   After honing his act in clubs around the Midwest, John competed and was crowned the first champion of CBS' “Star Search,” in 2003.

He has performed stand up on numerous television shows, including “The Tonight Show,” “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” and “Last Comic Standing,” where he was a semi-finalist.  He made his debut on  “Conan,” in 2012.  His web series, "Marc Maron in Space" with Marc Maron and James Adomian, premieres in 2013, produced by IFC.  John's second album will be released on AST Records in 2013.

He has appeared numerous times as a panelist on cable networks like VH-1, Fox News, and Fuel TV.

John's CD “Dressed for Recess,” was released in 2008 on RBC records and continues to receive frequent airplay on Sirius Satellite Radio.

John performs in clubs across North America, including the Comic Strip in New York and the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach.  He is also a  regular performer on such acclaimed independent comedy shows as “Whiplash,” “Comedy Bang Bang,” “Meltdown,” and “Comedy at the Knitting Factory.”  In 2008, he was invited to perform for the World Bank in Washington, DC.

John was a guest at the 2004 HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, the 2009 Just For Laughs Festival in Chicago, and has been an annual guest at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland since 2010.

Stewart Huff was born in Campbellsville, Kentucky and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has been performing comedy for over 15 years, beginning when he decided to drop out of college to become a writer. Currently touring theatres, comedy clubs and special events across the country, Huff reaches past the norm for his genuine -- and genuinely unexpected -- comedy. His knack for embracing the foibles of humanity and his refreshing originality make him as likeable as he is hilarious. A storyteller at heart, Huff continues to amaze with his clever material and personal wit.

Huff has performed in comedy clubs nationally and internationally, including the Improv in Los Angeles and New York, the Punchline in Atlanta and the Funny Bone in Omaha, as well as countless others.

Invited to perform in the HBO Las Vegas Festival, Huff’s act can be viewed on pay-per-view. He was also a finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival in 2006.

He currently lives near Athens, Georgia with his girlfriend. There, in his crooked farmhouse, he drops off the various items he collects while on the road, including an antique barber chair, countless vintage photographs, and an extensive collection of LP’s. She likes this.

Look for him in the upcoming documentary Road Comics: Big Work on Small Stages, currently in post-production and slated for release in Fall 2011.

In the hard-hitting New York comedy world, D.C. Benny is a heavyweight contender. His unorthodox style of comedic story-telling, seasoned with original characters, has earned him a rabid fan base of all shapes, sizes, shades and ages over the last 26 years.

As an English major at the University of Maryland, he entered a talent show where he got big laughs doing impressions of all of his professors. He soon became a fixture at local comedy clubs in the D.C. area, before moving to Brooklyn NY.

Once in New York, he made a name for himself as a white comic who was happy to work the urban rooms in addition to performing at the mainstream comedy clubs.

Benny killed on his first tv appearance on Showtime At the Apollo and has since performed in all over the U.S. and toured internationally.

Many of his fans know him from his dramatic film and tv roles. He has been seen on multiple Law and Orders, had a long run on the soap As The World Turns, and has been in many feature films such as Freedomland with Samuel Jackson and John Singleton’s Illegal Tender.

He has also been in numerous national commercials for Verizon, Dell, Volkswagon, Wendy’s, and was the main character in the Budweiser “How You Doin’?” Superbowl spots.

His Comedy Central half hour is one of the highest rated in the networks history, and he was a top 8 finalist in season 8 of Last Comic Standing.

His weekly comedic story-telling show, Urban Myth, became an underground staple, where performers such as Dave Chapelle, Ben Bailey, Jim Gaffigan, Marc Maron, Jim Norton, and Colin Quinn would drop by and tell their true, funny, stories.

Benny still lives in Brooklyn with his wife and animals, where he works on his writing projects, fiddles around with old Land Rovers, and makes his own sauce.

It was 1999, six years after finishing his collegiate basketball career at Division III Whitewater College, and bouncing around jobs that Kevin found himself in the real world with no real job skills and a strong desire to work an hour a day.  What to do?  Inspired by nights on the couch watching Def Comedy Jam and challenged by his roommate, Kevin decided to head over to nearby Madison, WI and try the “Open-Mic Night”.  “I always was the guy who could make people laugh, and lets be honest I had nothing better going on”.

Thirteen years later Kevin is still going on-stage, and he has found the job that fit his requirements.  “For an hour a night I’m wildly successful”.  With a smooth and clever style, a great smile and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country.  In 2000 he was the winner of the Midwest region of the HBO “Comedy Competition” and flew to Los Angeles to compete as a finalist.  He performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” in 2003, and finished 2nd in the Boston Comedy Competition in 2005.  He was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” in 2010.  This past summer he co-starred in the Indie film “Flat Chested” starring Alicia Witt and Luke Perry.
