For 20 years Costaki has been living his dream as a full-time stand up comic.
He has written jokes for Bette Midler, Jay Leno, MTV and BET.You may have seen him on Showtime, or heard him on Sirius, but you probably know him best from his regular appearances on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show. If you haven't seen him LIVE, you're missing out!!
Sean Jordan is a stand up comedian living in Los Angeles by way of South Dakota. He made it out even though South Dakota is the greatest state in the country! Sean spent his formative years in Portland OR where he was voted the funniest person in 2014. In 2015 he was named one of the "Comics to Watch" by Splitsider and in 2016 was awarded the same title by Comedy Central.
Sean moved to Los Angeles just over a year ago where he waisted no time digging into the stand up scene performing on the top shows in the city while also maintaining a non stop touring schedule. If you're a podcast fan then you've most likely heard Sean on the wildly popular podcast All Fantasy Everything, where he is a regular cohost. IndieWire magazine even crowned an episode: One of the 50 Best Podcast Episodes of 2017! How fun is that?! Sean is also a regular guest and fan favorite on Doug Benson's podcast Doug Loves Movies. You may have also heard him on Professor Blastoff, The Crabfeast, Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, Put Your Hands Together and ARIYNBF (Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend).
Sean is no stranger to the festival circuit, either: Sketchfest in San Francisco, High Plains Comedy Festival in Denver and The Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland to name a few. Sean was also a part time staff writer on Live Wire radio and just recently wrapped up as a member of a writing team for a Comedy Central pilot.
Comedian, actor, radio host and best selling author, JAY MOHR! He's been performing stand-up comedy since he was sixteen years old. With a career that has spanned over three decades, Jay has become an artist that is very difficult to define. Never wanting to rest on his accomplishments, Jay has always pushed himself to be more than just a comic.
After landing his dream job on Saturday Night Live, it appeared as though Jay had reached the height of comedic success. Little did he know that just three years later, he would be cast opposite Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire and that same year co-star with Jennifer Anniston in Picture Perfect. Now the world that knew "comedian Jay" was quickly introduced to the "actor Jay." Never wanting to choose one career over the other, Mohr has brilliantly balanced both acting and stand-up comedy as roommates in his brain.
In the radio world, Jay now hosts the nationally syndicated daily Jay Mohr Sports as well as a regular contributor on the highest rated radio shows in the country, with multiple stints on Kevin and Bean and Opie and Anthony... just to name a few.
Jay has guest starred in over 50 different television dramas and comedy series episodes, but his most recent turn on an episode of Dick Wolf's Law and Order: Criminal Intent as a Charlie Sheen type character ripped from the headlines, has garnered him the most attention and respect. "He's really good" said Wolf, "it's kind of odd because he is known as a comic and this is a highly dramatic role that a lot of dramatic actors would have had a very hard time eschewing and he does a great job." He added "... you know, it's like if you're playing tennis against a club champion, you're game should go up... the better the competition the better the game... and I think Jay really came to play."
Throughout his journey, Jay still loves performing stand-up comedy it's in his blood, his bones and his DNA. Anyone that has ever seen one of his concerts will be quick to tell you that there is no one better. Comedy Central agrees, having named Mohr one of the 100 greatest stand-up comics of all time. A simple bio doesn't do the stage show justice... as there are no notes, no two shows the same, and an act that never picks on the audience. These are the three tenets that Jay believes makes great live comedy, and the foundation is laid when Jay often tells his audiences, "Lets just jump off a cliff together and build our wings on the way down!"

She once followed a eulogy at the Limestone Comedy Festival, after which, Bobcat Goldthwait told her he’d never seen anyone do what she does. She has taken this as a compliment.
Emma is the cofounder and artistic director of the 208 Comedyfest, as well as the codirector for Comedyfort (part of the Treefort Festival). Her debut comedy album, "Shut Up, Calvin", is available from Rooftop Comedy. And, when not touring, Emma lives with her children in Idaho, where she keeps kids and bees with varying degrees of success.

He has opened for some of the best comics in the business including Brad Garrett, Louie Anderson, Dennis Miller, and Eddie Griffin. His abilities that are presented on stage are endless!
