Myles Weber’s Stand Up Comedy addiction started very early in life. By the time he was eight years old, he was sneaking out of his bed at night to watch any stand-up comedy show he could find on black box cable. When his teacher explained to him what stand-up was and how comedians make people laugh just like he did, he immediately jumped at the opportunity to enter his school's talent show. “I won the whole thing doing stand-up, mainly because I was the only kid that wasn’t singing 'Living La Vida Loca' or 'What A Girl Wants.'”
At that moment, Myles got bit by the comedy bug; hard. Since then, Myles became obsessed with Stand-Up Comedy, studying the craft and performing almost nightly to get in his 10,000 hours. He handedly took first place in the 40th Annual San Francisco International Comedy Competition. (Past competitors include Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Sinbad, Ellen Degeneres, Louis CK, Patton Oswald, Marc Maron, Doug Stanhope and Dane Cook.) Weber was the second youngest to win the competition and one of only two comics to ever sweep the whole thing.
Myles has appeared on MTV's "Greatest Party Story Ever". You may have also seen Weber as the Host for Portico TV or maybe you’ve seen him as a correspondent for Popular Science, one of the biggest science websites in the world. Also able to flex his comedy writing muscle, Myles wrote for Portico and Smosh Pit Weekly on Smosh’s YouTube Channel. (The biggest gaming channel in the world.) Myles' high energy crowd work has kept audiences in stitches all across the U.S. and Canada.
Blending together high octane improv, crowd interaction and story telling, seeing Myles Weber means you will never see the same show twice.

The Jack Mormon Comedy Hour for the Latter-Day sinners! The Straight Outta Darkness episode!
It may just be a live microphone in a small spotlight, but when Kris Shaw steps up to it, the experience is unlike anything you've come to expect from stand up comedy.
Kris is a storyteller who, with quick bursts of wit and carefully crafted silences, keeps the audience engaged through everyday observations and tough topics alike. His slightly askew but lovable style disarms and charms from the first set-up to the final punch line. There isn't so much as a hint of meanness in his spirit, and that good energy spills onto the stage and beyond. You will find yourself laughing out loud, delighted at how easily you relate to this uniquely funny guy.
Kris is a fan favorite who tours comedy clubs, colleges and events all across the United States and Canada. He has entertained troops in Iraq, Kuwait, Japan, Korea, Bahrain, Dubai, Kyrgestan and Africa. Kris also appears in national television commercials and had a recurring extra role on the CBS drama Close To Home.
JAY MOHR RETURNS TO LIQUID!!
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!"
When Sophie Hughes talks, people listen—and laugh. Not only is she one of the funniest stand-up comedians around, she's one of the most fearless. Though rather soft-spoken and sweet, Hughes isn't afraid to get on stage in front of a crowd and say what's on her mind. What's even more remarkable is how respected by her peers Hughes is. When asked who their favorites are, a number of local comedians put Hughes on their list—and deservedly so. - Boise Weekly
