Born Jay Dante Rusciolelli, DANTE is currently a cast member on Last Comic Standing. On Last Comic Standing, he received the Capital One / No Hassle Pass audience favorite award in the LA auditions and again at the Semi-finals, becoming one of only two comedians in the show's history to receive back-to-back audience favorite awards; he even received the first standing ovation ever had during the show's semis round! On the show he is represented in the story line as the cute stay at home dad. The Internet response to Dante has been the most positive out of everyone. By far the most talked about cast member online.
Dante is one of the top headlining comedians in the United States, appearing on numerous television shows and in films, and appearing to sold-out crowds across the country, as well as making regular stops each year at U.S. military bases around the world, entertaining the troops in every branch of the Armed Forces. He has been honored as the recipient of several comedy awards, including the $10,000 grand prize on America's Funniest People on ABC; he also still holds the record for winning the most comedy awards ever presented to a single comedian at the BET Comedy Awards. Dante was even the winner of Los Angeles "Funniest Black Comic in LA" award... we're still not sure how he even qualified for that one!
Beginning his career in San Diego at the La Jolla Comedy Store, Dante has since made a name for himself as one of the few comedians working today who are able to cross over to any crowd and still be just as funny. He is the rare sort of performer who can perform at an urban comedy club, do another set in front of a Latino crowd later that evening, and then still bring down the house at a Beverly Hills country club benefit show after that, all in the same night... and he has!
While he travels across the country, as well as abroad, today Dante calls Los Angeles his home, where you can catch him regularly at The Comedy Store and the Laugh Factory. In his comedy journey, Dante has had the honor and pleasure of working with some of the greats in the entertainment business, including Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, Milton Berle, BB King, Santana & Macy Grey... as well as Weird Al Yankovich (who may or may not qualify as one of the "greats" - but he IS a heck of a lot of fun!).
As an actor, Dante has been in over 20 plays. He received 1 of only 2 scholarships for acting at USIU. The other scholarship went to Jamie Foxx. Dante also studied under Jeff Goldblum at Playhouse West. He’s had many roles in films and on TV shows. He starred for 2 years on a sitcom called The Blackberry Inn on BET. It was their highest rated show ever. Dante was also the commercial spokesman for ICE LITE from Miller. And had a development deal with Sony/Tri-Star in '95.
With his sold-out club shows & recent television appearances, as well as upcoming projects in the near future, Dante is one act that's hard to miss! Read more...

Born during a freak hailstorm in Texas, Jason’s mom sensed early that something was off. Turns out, that something... was Comedy. Jason's mix of colloquial philosophy and absurdist observation have made him a must-see for comedy fans of all ages. His stand-up has been described as “…like getting the best advice ever from the dumbest guy you know”.
As an actor, improv and sketch comic, Jason found success, but it wasn't until he stepped onto the stand-up stage that he realized his true calling (and that he could still do those other things). He has since appeared on stand-up stages across the U.S., on the big screen (in a series of unprofitable Indy films), on the small screen (in Orange is the New Black and 30 Rock), in a ton of commercials (including Toyota 4Runner: Snakebite and GEICO: Happier than a Witch in a Broom Factory), and on the very small screen (in a bunch of ridiculous internet videos).

He was a cast member for the the last three seasons of The World’s Dumbest on TruTv, and has appeared on several other pop up commentary series, including VH1’s I Love the 2000’s. Expanding his resume into behind the camera work, Dan’s also written or helped produce numerous reality shows the past few years, including Duck Dynasty on A&E, Porter Ridge on Discovery, Town of the Living Dead on SyFy and he is currently writing for two upcoming series being produced by Red Bull. Never taking a break from standup, Dan continues to tour and will be releasing Chinese Affection, his fourth album on Warner Brothers Records, in 2015. This new material was originally recorded for Pandora after the leading internet radio provider chose Dan as their very first comic to spotlight due to his popularity on their stations. Dan will also be recording another special with Warner Brothers in 2015, and, you can now watch him every week, Monday-Thursday, 9-10am PST on Playboy, as he is the new co-host of The Playboy Morning Show, the network’s most popular and longest running series.
Hailed by his peers as one of the smartest comedians in the country, Bob Dubac raises the bar of stand-up comedy high above the mediocrity of television. If you are tired of the not-so-special comedy specials you see on cable then don’t miss Bob Dubac.
He beats the hornet’s nest of hype and spin using the big stick of knowledge with a voice that sounds like it came from the inside of your own frustrated head. On stage, Dubac buckles us up for a fast-paced joy ride over the pot-holed highways of cultural hypocrisy. Riding shotgun with intelligence and absurdity he crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media - all in an effort to expose the idiocracy that surrounds us. For example, “idiocracy” isn’t even a word. How dumb is that?
Bob is usually busy performing his award winning solo shows THE MALE INTELLECT: AN OXYMORON? and THE BOOK OF MORON in theaters all over the world. So it’s a rare treat to have him here.
If thinking were easy, everyone would do it but it’s not - so we have Bob Dubac appearing this week. It’s comedy on steroids. Think your funny bone can handle it? Read more...
For over 20 years Todd Yohn's high energy, non-stop act has blended stand-up, improv, and music into one deliciously stimulating show. His fresh and clever original comedy tunes such as "The Femenine Hygene Song" "Daddy Please Don't Go" and the very popular" Orange Barrels" have separated Todd from the "other" guitar playing comedy acts.
Todd has been an accomplished musician for many years and still has a songwriting deal with MCA Publishing in Nashville, Tennessee. He is one of the few performers today who has the rare ability to produce large amounts of laughter with the lift of an eye brow or droop of the lip.
Todd's combination of material, uncanny sense of timing and his complete uniqueness of personality, has earned him the reputation as one of the best club comedians in the country. As a matter of fact, Tom Griswald of the nationally syndicated morning radio show "Bob and Tom" has said that, "Todd Yohn is, by far, the funniest live comedian show anyone will ever see". At 6'3" and 180 pounds Todd is a red-headed, walking, talking cartoon. A master of physical comedy, Todd can move in and out of characters within seconds and make anyone think they are watching multiple performers. But then again, that's what Todd does best!
Watching Todd's show, one gets the feeling that they are watching an "out-take" of a movie as Todd is laughing himself and having a genuinely grand time on stage. This self-deprecating comic puts you at ease from the beginning to the end of his show and you will hurt from laughing as you leave his performance.
Todd is heavily requested on the college circuit as well as the corporate world and national comedy club network. You might have seen Todd on HBO, SHOWTIME, VH-1, and COMEDY CENTRAL.
He has worked with Glenn Campbell, The Four Tops, Charlie Daniels, and is Joan Rivers' favorite opening act (in his price range). His humor and songwriting have made him one of the ORIGINAL "regulars" of "The Bob and Tom Show".
According to Kevin Brady of Outback Concert Promotions, "Todd is my number one closer for the "Friends of the Bob and Tom Show" national tours." Simply put, Todd does comedy the way comedy was meant to be performed. He is a total performer who will thrill any audience!
Don't miss the opportunity to experience this "one of a kind" entertainer! Read more...

Dan is a New York-based actor, writer and stand-up comedian. He has appeared on Comedy Central's Inside Amy Schumer, The Half Hour, Conan and Opie & Anthony. He had a leading role in the feature-length indie film It Had To Be You opposite Cristin Milioti.
Gathering material from a wealth of life experiences, Jose takes audiences on the rollercoaster ride that’s been his life. Born in Cuba and deported because of his father’s political prisoner status, he came to the U.S. at a young age. Growing up with a hard working, and always quirky, Cuban family brought loads of funny moments everyday.
From his mother’s ability to kill a chicken with her bare hands, to his Dad’s ability to hit on any woman, anytime, there was never a dull moment. What they did best was teach him to work hard for his dreams, and not forget how to laugh at life and himself. He made them proud when, after high school, he was accepted to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. He became an officer in the Air Force, is an accomplished aviator, and is a veteran having served in Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. He’s been all over the world and has even been shot at in two countries. This and more he brings to the stage believing that, “if you can’t laugh at a hard time in your life, you ain’t over it yet.”
His comedy career started out in New York and Philadelphia, getting on stage anytime he wasn’t serving. He performs all over the country now and is rapidly becoming an audience favorite for his ability to make deportation, and life threatening moments hysterical.
He’s been featured in the Air Force Times, was selected for the 2007 Latino Laugh Festival in Los Angeles, and the Lucky 21 Contest at The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas. In 2008 he won the Funniest Person In South Texas Comedy Competition and was a semi-finalist in the San Francisco International Comedy Competition. In 2009, he was a finalist in the Seattle International Comedy Competition. In 2011 he was the winner of the Rocky Mountain Laugh Off in Salt Lake City, UT. He’s been seen on CNN, CBS, Fox, and Lifetime’s “Coming Home” with his touring group, The GIs of Comedy, and recently on NUVO TV’s “Comedy Unfiltered,” with Anjelah Johnson. He is the co-host of NUVO TV’s Stand Up and Deliver which airs it’s fourth season in 2015. Most nights you can find him on stage somewhere, but one week a month its all dog tags and volleyball, down in Texas, teaching the next generation of top guns the basics. Read more...

Likeable, laughable and liable is what Daryl Felsberg is. After being on the road for over 10 years now, he has honed his comedy voice into a character that the industry and fans alike are taking notice of. In 2009, Daryl produced his album “BadFattitude” selling nationwide, while getting airplay on XM / Sirus Comedy. That same year Daryl was tapped to be the host of “The Shopper’s Club”; a shop-from-home show on a regional cable network. Daryl was yanked off the air after only 3 months for mocking the clients and their products, although viewership was at an all-time high. Daryl is recognizable from many commercials and voiceovers. His rants on obesity and society, and the absurdities of everyday life, keep audiences laughing and on guard. From stage to TV, the only thing bigger than he is... are the laughs.
