Nick moved to NYC after winning a local stand-up competition, and he now headlines at clubs, colleges, benefits and corporate events all over the country. He does commentary on MTV; he's been featured on AMC's "Date Night," and he just appeared on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham." Luke Cunningham has been performing stand-up since 2005. He plays Abe Lincoln on the Colbert Report and has been seen on MTV, and RISK! with Kevin Allison. Susan Prekel is a NYC-based stand-up comic who has been featured on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham" and "Comics Unleashed." In addition to performing regularly at shows throughout NYC, she has also appeared at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival. Brian Sloan is a classically trained actor, writer and comedian who has been living and performing in NYC since 1997.

He formerly edited NYU's humor magazine "The Plague," and he currently co-produces and hosts the very popular "Don't Touch Me There" show every month at Karma. Pat's comedy short films have been front-page featured on the Cracked, Comedysmack, FunnyOrDie, and Just For Laughs websites. Brent Sullivan, the 25 year old, New York City based stand up comedian, describes his act as a true interpretation of himself on stage. Full of dichotomies, he most appreciates being described as "gay -- but not gay." Brent has honed his act around a variety of themes that all fit within the typical gay American life, however, without the stereotypical attitude that plagues most gay comedians. His hysterically unique approach and refreshing take on conventional gay issues promises to bring gay comedy to a new level of mainstream acceptance.
