Comedian Dean Edwards has been making his mark in comedy following two successful seasons as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. With such memorable impressions as Don Cheadle, Michael Jackson, and Denzel Washington, as well as such original characters as Man in Elevator and Cop #2, Edwards has pushed himself to the limits of creativity and exhaustion. Always the multitasker, Edwards found the momentum to juggle his Saturday Night Live career, his numerous stand-up appearances, and multiple television appearances. Edwards most recently appeared in Showtime’s Comics Without Borders, the nine-week comedy series which showcased multicultural stand up comedians. Currently devoting his career to his first love, stand-up comedy, Edwards will release a comedy DVD with Salient Media in mid-2009.
In addition to stand-up, Edwards has made several late-night appearances, including The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Last Call with Carson Daly. He is also a favorite and frequent guest on Byron Allen’s Comics Unleashed and is frequently providing comedic commentary on various VH1 highlight shows. Director Malcolm D. Lee also chose Edwards to finish Bernie Mac’s voice/ADR work on Soul Men after the comedian’s untimely death. Edwards also provided the voice-over of Barack Obama on the new CNN show, DL Hughley Breaks the News.
Born in the Bronx and raised throughout various parts of New York, Edwards' travels have made it easy for him to communicate with all walks of life. After dividing his college career between classes and a six-year term in the United States Army Reserve, Edwards ultimately made the choice to devote his career to comedy. Although his fellow soldiers loved his impressions of their drill sergeant, Edwards spent many an afternoon doing push-ups to pay for his comedic talent. That talent paid off and Edwards found his career when he participated in his college talent show. Armed with a degree in communications, Edwards became an in-demand comic and landed his first big break on Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam. Though the show is renowned for its blue humor, Edwards found a way to break the traditional mold with his mainstream appeal.
Subsequently, he was a featured comedian on Showtime at the Apollo a few years later. Edwards followed his television appearances by starring in numerous commercials, and he also worked with Spike Lee on the hit feature film, The Original Kings of Comedy. Edwards has since earned a reputation as a headlining favorite at comedy clubs and colleges across the country. Read more...

A former trucker, pooper scooper and charm school graduate from Charlotte, North Carolina, Julie has been touring as a full time stand-up comedian for over 15 years. On the road approximately 36 weeks a year with one week a month set aside for "marriage preservation". She loves riding her motorcycle to gigs and you'll frequently see her 2004 Harley Road King parked outside the club, theater, radio or TV station.
Julie's regularly heard on XM/Sirius Blue Collar Radio, as well as many syndicated stations including the John Boy & Billy Show, and the Bob & Sheri Show, (Charlotte, NC), and the Bob & Tom Show (Indianapolis, IN). A Southern girl with universal appeal, Julie's shows sell out from Florida to Oregon. Folks actually WANT to sit in the front row & have been known to return a second night, just so they can bring friends that haven't yet seen her.

Pat Godwin has blossomed into one of the most clever comedians and prolific, award-winning comedy songwriters in the business. Pat first got national airplay with the holiday classic he crafted with his brothers James and Jack called, “Let’s Put Christ Back in Christmas” from the album Reindeer Games. After that, it wasn’t long before Godwin’s talents were being used on radio morning shows; a medium Pat is more than familiar with. He’s appeared on every top morning show you can think of, worked for 6 years as a part of Philadelphia’s Morning Zoo, 3 years for The Bob & Tom Show, and was a frequent guest and contributor to both Howard Stern’s radio and TV shows.
It comes as no surprise that Godwin is enjoying some success, seeing as how he possesses one of the most entertaining and original live shows in the business. He was featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2009. Because he has such strong material and highly developed improvisational skills, no two shows are ever the same… not even close. And don’t let that sly boyish smile fool you; it only takes about three seconds on stage to realize that Pat’s comedy has an edge to it. With a mix of quirky, personal musings and off-the-cuff remarks, Godwin can segue in to any one of his songs, performed in an endless array of musical styles. He recently headlined The Irish Comedy Tour employing his vast catalog of Irish material and original drinking songs like, “Switch To Beer” and “Maybe It’s Time To Go Home”.
Though Pat’s been charming audiences in clubs for years and has been featured on every major radio morning show in the country, one of his greatest achievements came with the release of 2005’s “Under the Bed“. Godwin wrote and recorded an eclectic compilation of new tunes, and live favorites, as well as exorcising some of the demons left behind from a relationship gone wrong. But don’t let that dark description scare you; “Under the Bed” is hilarious, and getting heavy rotation on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Show. It contains the Number 1 most requested song on morning radio, “Gangsta Folk,” as well as the International Songwriting Competition award winning songs, “C’est La Vie” and “First Date”. Read more...

Averaging more than 200 shows a year, Slade has performed in thirty-six countries on six different continents over the last fifteen years. Whether in Amsterdam, Toronto, or Texas, he cuts right to the heart of what makes the audience tick. There’s no pageantry, no props, no musical cues or novelty closer; he doesn’t have to take his pants off on stage to get huge laughs.
A seasoned headliner at clubs across the United States, Slade closed XM/Sirius’s two hour long, Best of Texas special and all three of his full length albums continue to receive daily airplay on both the Raw Dog and Blue Collar Comedy stations. Slade also returned to Montreal where his short film, A Fistful of Pills, went up against Kevin Pollack at the Just for Laughs festival and won, was a staff writer for the African Film Critics Awards, and most recently he appeared on A&E’s Flipped Off alongside Survivor’s Russel Hantz. You even saw him in ring at Wrestlemania XXV. Ok, that last part is a lie.
Slade is a veteran behind the microphone, both on stage and off. He is a regular on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show, co-host of The Outlaw Dave Show in Houston, and host of the wildly popular bi-weekly Whiskey Brothers Podcast, which frequently lands in the Top 25 comedy podcasts on iTunes and spawned a Jack Daniel’s sponsored tour and a feature length comedy special.
His real passions lie on the road, however – traveling the world and collecting stories. He has free-climbed mountains and been swimming with sharks. He blew out his Achilles tendon dancing to Irish music. He’s wrestled a cheetah and beaten up a midget. He’s wandered Australia’s outback, been lost in Cambodian jungles, and hiked a good part of the Andes. He ran from the cops in The Philippines and was escorted through Cairo in an armored convoy. He drank a bottle of whiskey on a Saturday night and woke up the next morning in a black Baptist church. He is anything but boring.
Slade has also taken his show overseas to the United States military twice a year for the last decade. He was telling jokes in Germany two weeks after 9/11, he’s hopped from base to base across Japan and Korea for the Air Force, and has been dropped off by Blackhawk helicopter to do spontaneous sets for soldiers in the Iraqi desert and the mountains of Afghanistan.
When not on stage, Slade drinks Irish whiskey on the rocks and listens to rock and roll much too loud. One day he hopes to write a book, host a travel show, and continue to trick the world into paying him to do the things he loves to do. He keeps a very expensive storage unit in Houston, TX.
