Here's a guy that brings something to the party - Headlice!

Greg Hahn has parlayed his absurdly energetic, all out style of physical humor, one liners and crowd work, into an act with no waiting for the funny, just immediate pandemonium and panic. His massive likeability and wild stylings have led to numerous television, corporate and college appearances throughout the country.

Developmentally arrested, Greg was raised in South Florida where in high school he amused the Catholic nuns by poking holes in his pockets enabling pens and pencils to shoot out of his pant leg.

As a college basketball player his tendency for half court shots got him benched.

As a Captain in the Marines Corps, Greg kept his men highly motivated and could not overemphasize that camouflage is continuous.

While a buyer for Lockheed Corporation, he thought ?Why make $200 a day, when I can be a comedian and make that in a week!?

After several serious jobs where he refused to be serious, Greg turned pro as a stand up comedian.

The career began with several months of brutal open mics and talent shows. He then landed the absurd gig as emcee for a lumberjack show at Six Flags Great America. This career choice supplied him with a microphone and four huge audiences a day, "I had to do jokes while a bunch of drunks ran around swinging axes. We had a log rolling dog that couldn?t even swim, she would fly off the log and sink. We named her Splash.?

Soon afterwards, he worked as an actor in the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show at Universal Studios. "For $20 an hour, I'd run out, fall down a few times and get hit in the head with a stick".

At night he continually honed his stand up skills and after several years of club work moved his career to New York City.
While in New York, Greg developed into a touring headliner and co-starred in the independent film Tomorrow Night which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Then, after successful shows at the Montreal and Chicago Comedy Festivals, Greg enjoyed hit television appearances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Comedy Central's Premium
Blend, Make Me Laugh (5 episodes) and Louis CK's Pulp Comics. He recently had wild appearances on 30 Seconds to Fame and Cedric the Entertainer Presents with the Fox network and the CBS hit show Star Search.

Continuing to advance his career in film and television, Greg has since relocated to Los Angeles where in between shows and acting classes he knocks out pull-ups, and goes ballistic on his drum set.

Erin Jackson from Erin Jackson on Vimeo.

“Washington has been the home of a number of very good comics and a few great ones (Wanda Sykes, Dave Chappelle, Lewis Black, Martin Lawrence). Erin Jackson could be next in line.” – The Washington Post

Armed with a megawatt smile and a pocket full of dreams, Erin Jackson is poised to conquer the world of stand-up. In fact, she’d probably be a superstar by now if her friends and family hadn’t spent so many years hating on her dreams and stealing her joy.

Since first making a name for herself at colleges and east coast comedy clubs, Erin’s conversational style and relatable humor have helped to propel her onto the national stage. Erin was a semifinalist on the 2014 reboot of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and co-hosts “Exhale,” a provocative and candid talk series, now in its second season on Earvin “Magic” Johnson’s ASPiRE television network.

In 2013, Erin traveled with Dave Chappelle as the opening act for his summer tour, and was nominated Best Female Entertainer by Campus Activities Magazine, the official publication of the National Association for Campus Activities. Erin has also performed stand-up on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” OWN’s “Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious,” Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and TV Guide Network’s “Standup in Stilettos.” She has appeared on VH-1 and TV Guide Network as a panelist on pop-culture countdown shows such as “40 Greatest Hip Hop Songs of the 90?s” and “Best Movie Kisses,” and her writing has been featured in The Washington Post and on NYTimes.com.

A proud alumna of Howard University, Erin is also obsessed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Originally from Aurora, CO, Dan Soder started doing stand-up at 21 while attending the University of Arizona. After two years of playing clubs and casinos all over the southwest, Dan decided he'd had enough of extreme heat and venomous animals, so he moved to New York to get serious about stand-up. After living in New York for close to 5 years, Dan has been featured on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham", and was the standout at the 2011 Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. Dan was also voted funniest comedian at the New York Comedy Festival. Dan recently performed at the 2012 SXSW festival in Austin, TX and is currently hosting the Yahoo! Screen web series, "Mansome", produced by Morgan Spurlock, Jason Bateman, and Will Arnett.

This is more of an AutoBio than a Bio. The truth is most comedians write their own bios. I’m not judging. It’s a lot easier to brag about one’s own accomplishments while hiding behind third person. They are very well written. It seems comedians either 1. Have a Masters in English, or 2. A Thesaurus, and a lot of free time. I have neither.

I could write things like: Chad’s devilishly naughty nature shines through like comedy gold when he takes the stage. Chad’s disarming personality allows him to push boundaries only the truly funny attempt. His edgy style usually begins by splitting the room into two equally stunned fractions and then miraculously ends up with everyone leaving the club with a new favorite comedian. But that’s lame. Or I could write: Plenty of comics have jokes about marriage and children, but few speak about the experience with such uncompromising honesty. “Babies are miracles. Think about it.

When they’re born their feet are tiny. Yet, they can somehow step on all your hopes and dreams.” It’s this acidic material, cut with underlying sweetness and served up with a knowing smirk, that perfectly encapsulates Daniels’s take-no-prisoners style of comedy. Even though he was born and raised there he’s not interested in Minnesota Nice. With his onstage swagger and arsenal of incisive, uproarious material, he practically bullies the audience into loving him. Sounds awesome, but that’s not how I talk.

The truth is I’d rather you come see me to check it out for yourself. To get you to the club I’ll tell you this.

In 2004 I performed in the New Faces show at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. I’ve been on the Late Late show on CBS with Craig Kilbourn and Craig Ferguson. In 2006 I was on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham. I have three CDs. “Two Minutes for Stale Hacking” which was self-produced, “Busy Being Awesome” and my latest “You’re the Best” both on Stand-up! Records. I was named “Artist of the Year” in comedy by City Pages in 2009. I’ve been seen numerous times on “The Bob and Tom Television program”. I performed at the Aspen Comedy Festival for Rooftop Comedy and was given the award Comic’s Comic. I have a half hour special called Comedy Central Presents… Chad Daniels, which was voted #5 of all time in 2010. I am one of 13 comedians that have the honor to say they were on the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. I was invited back to the Just for laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal to perform in The Masters Show. In 2012, I won the Gilda’s Laughfest Competition, performed on Conan’s new show, and released a free one hour special called “As Is” on the internet.

I’m funny. If you’re still not willing to come to a show you’re just being difficult.

Saleem is not only a great Comedian… he is also a great Contrarian: “Even if you agree with me about something, it’s not for the same reasons.” What is not up for debate are audience reactions to this Ohio native. His instant likeability and dynamic stage presence complement his bold and refreshingly original  material.

His ability to appeal to a broad audience without compromising his distinctive comedic “voice” makes him a hot commodity in theaters, corporate events, colleges and clubs worldwide.

Born and raised in Dayton, OH. labeled the “City of Innovators!” It has been home to such luminaries as Edwin C. Moses, Dr. Charles Drew, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Erma Bombeck, John Kettering and most famously the Wright Brothers. Saleem jokes he has much in common with the famous aviation pioneers : “Like Orville and Wilbur, the minute I could, I flew out of Dayton too…” the comedian quips. “I rarely go back…. mainly because my family still lives there.” However, the sky is the limit for Saleem and he is soaring his way to new comedic heights!

His credits include appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, TBS’s “Lopez Tonight” FOX’s “Best Damn SportShow…Period” and BET’s “Comic View.” He has worked with music greats “The Temptations”, “Boyz II Men” and Vanessa Williams. Comedy legends such as George Carlin, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, D.L. Hughley, Kathleen Madigan and Gary Shandling.

With International engagements that include stops in The United Kingdom, Canada, The Netherlands and the Caribbean. Charity performances in Israel and Mexico. The Honor to perform on tours supporting United States Service personnel for The Armed Forces Entertainment Network in Iraq and Kuwait. Clearly demonstrating a universal appeal that has put him in demand Worldwide.

As a professional actor, you may have seen Saleem on ABC’s “Sons & Daughters”, Universal’s “Blind Date” or in a host of commercials including “Foot Locker” and “Pringles”.

Perhaps you’ve heard him hosting on Sirius Satellite Radio’s “Blue Collar” channel or guest appearing on the “The Bob & Tom Show” nationally syndicated broadcast. Regardless of where he performs Saleem’s confident, clean and irreverent style places him firmly in the “Must see!” category of comedians today!

Nick Griffin started his stand up career in Kansas City at the age of nineteen. By the time he graduated from college three years later, he was working full time all across the country. He moved to New York City in 1990 cutting his teeth on midnight shows in Greenwich Village. He was poor and alone but getting funnier and funnier. Eventually he relocated to Los Angeles and quickly became a regular at the world famous Improv and The Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. During this time, he appeared on a handful of television shows including A and Eâ's An Evening at the Improv and Comedy on the Road. He also began writing for television. Nick was a staff writer on the Keenen Ivory Wayans Show in 1996. And later a head writer for the Bobby Slayton/Sue Murphy radio show. But his first love was always stand up comedy. In 1998 he was invited to take part in the New Faces show at The HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. That same year he made his network television debut on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, as well as Comedy Central's Premium Blend. Nick has made multiple appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman. Following his first appearance on the Late Show, Worldwide Pants signed Nick to a development deal that was set up at ABC. Nick has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. Last year he taped his own Comedy Central Presents, which aired in March. He now headlines America's best comedy clubs and is a regular guest on nationally syndicated radio's The Bob and Tom Show. Nick is still alone, but still getting funnier with each passing day. (Why screw up a good formula, right?) His comedy is personal, precise and powerful. It's true.
