Tyler Boeh is professionally funny. He started performing stand-up in Portland, OR and he proved himself as a young but formidable comedian by taking 2nd place in the Portland Comedy Competition and winning the Oregon International Comedy Competition just a few short months into his comedy career. In 2006 Tyler competed in the month long Seattle International Comedy Competition, where he was a finalist. Shortly following the competition, Tyler was featured in an article in Horizon Air Magazine about how comedians don’t have to move away from the NW to have a successful career in comedy. By the time the article was published, Tyler had moved away from the NW in hopes of having a successful career in comedy.
Tyler made the move to Boston, MA, where he would spend the next four years continuing to hone his craft. He quickly became a favorite on the Boston scene, but continued to work the road, staying busy performing at clubs across the country. In September of 2008 Tyler participated in the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition where he took 3rd place. Boeh was also a semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival in both 2008 and 2009. In 2009 he was featured on an episode of the second season of NESN’s Comedy All-Stars. In 2011 Tyler had had enough of New England’s winters and decided it was time for another cross-country move.
Now back on the West Coast, living in L.A., Boeh is rapidly establishing himself at the top clubs in Hollywood. With a background in improv and a love for writing, Tyler’s act is fast paced with a shotgun delivery. His comedy can be described as high-energy, intelligent, physical, and silly. Tyler has a balance of west coast charm and east coast attitude and has performed across the country from Portland, OR to Portland, ME, so whether he is on the small stage of an intimate comedy club or performing at a theater, Tyler is comfortable, confident, and hilarious. He uses his quick wit and celebrated talent of “beatboxing” to bring audiences to hysterical heights.

Olek Szewczyk. Though his parents came to the United States as political refugees from Jaroslaw, Poland, when he was still an infant, 29-year-old Aleksander "Olek" Krzysztof Szewczyk ("Vanna, can I please buy a vowel?") still has a hint of an accent. Szewczyk occasionally follows the deadpan delivery of one of his jokes with a self-referential laugh. It can make for an awkward moment as audience members look at each other to see if they should be laughing, too."I'm just a goofy bastard," he said with a smile.That's an apt description, but Szewczyk is also approachable, and it isn't long before everyone is relaxed and laughing along--it's like listening to a nerdy nephew tell jokes.
JOHN CAPARULO IS PERHAPS BEST KNOWN AS THE UNDER DRESSED EVERYMAN ON THE E HIT SHOW, CHELSEA LATELY.
From a very early age, Cap knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up— a grizzly bear. Unfortunately, like most youngsters with such lofty aspirations, his grades just weren’t good enough. So young John joined the navy in search of adventure. But his dreams were dashed once again when he realized it was the Old Navy, and the only adventure they could offer him involved folding cheap khakis for minimum wage. Cap wouldn’t let such minor disappointments sway him from finding a fulfilling career path though, and he decided to open his own karate dojo to teach deaf and blind kids how to defend themselves. It took about 6 years before anyone figured out that John didn’t know karate. The blind students had no idea what they were being taught had been derived mainly from Jackie Chan movies and Hong Kong Phooey or that Cap’s dojo was actually in his front yard. None of the deaf kids were able to win a fight against John, and naturally neither were any of their mothers. But after many of them watched Cap break his foot attempting to chop a board in half, the writing was on the wall, even in Braille. So Cap closed his front yard dojo forever and left town. Since then, he’s pursued a relatively successful career in comedy.
After working all over the globe for the past 20 years, he can now be seen exclusively at Harrah’s Las Vegas every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday until hibernation season, as he is still of course very much an aspiring grizzly bear. What a freakin’ weirdo.
Comedian, actor, and writer Josh Wolf has become one of the most sought after personalities in comedy today. From adding his quick witted commentary on comedy round tables, to becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author, writing on hit television shows, and headlining stand-up comedy tours across the nation, Wolf has proved time and time again he is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted comedians in the entertainment business. Wolf is currently a regular round table guest and writer on the hit E! series “Chelsea Lately,” and recently appeared as a performer on the new E! series “After Lately.” In March 2013, Wolf will debut his latest book, “It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Single Dad.” Funny and brutally honest, the book details Wolf’s adventures as a struggling stand up comedian, while juggling being a single parent in Los Angeles.
When he was 28, Wolf decided to make the move to Los Angeles. After several years in Seattle he had made his mark in the local comedy circuit, and wanted to play with the big boys of comedy. He quickly discovered it wasn’t any easier being a small fish in a saturated comedy pond, than a big fish in the entertainment pond of a port city.
In 1999, Wolf got his first big break, performing a one man show at the HBO Workspace- which landed him a talent deal at 20th Century Fox, and a deal for his own television series with ABC. A deal with NBC soon followed. While testing the waters on the television front, Wolf began writing for TV, and quickly found it was another aspect of the entertainment business that he loved. He wrote on numerous sitcoms including “Yes, Dear,” Will Smith’s “All of Us,” and “Cuts,” starring Shannon Elizabeth. He soon decided he wanted to dedicate all his time to writing, and stepped down from stand up, and appearing on camera.
In 2006 Wolf returned to television, appearing on the fourth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” This also marked his return to sitcoms, recurring on the hit series “My Name Is Earl” from 2006-09, and recurring and writing for “Raising Hope” in 2010-11.
