Comedian Thom Tran spent 8 years in the US Army, hoping to "be like Robin Williams in 'Good Morning Vietnam'." Since returning home, Thom's performed all over the United States, now calling Los Angeles his home. He can usually be found on stage at the famed Hollywood Improv, the World Famous Comedy Store, and clubs all over LA when he's not on tour throughout the country.
Thom created the GIs of Comedy hoping to bring the therapy of laughter to troops still serving in combat zones.
Jose Sarduy splits up his time between flying to gigs all over the county, and flying planes for the Air Force. Still an active member of the United States Air Force Reserve, he's an accomplished aviator and veteran of Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
Gathering material from a wealth of life experiences, Jose takes the audience on the roller-coaster ride that's been his life.
Tom Irwin spent his time in uniform with the US Army's 5th Engineers and now builds his career as a standup comedian in Los Angeles, and touring all over the world. Tom was an invited guest performer at the White House, as well as being a mainstay at Hollywood's most famous comedy clubs including the Laugh Factory, and the Ice House.
