Kyle Kinane is originally from Addison, Illinois, and has been performing for 10 years. He has been seen on NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly and BBC’s The World Stands Up. He has performed in the Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, LA Comedy Fest, the Vancouver Comedy Festival, the DC Comedy Fest, and theLeicester Comedy Festival in the United Kingdom.
He now resides in Los Angeles. He’ll have you know he was rated #5 in the Top 10: Emerging Comedians list on Askmen.com. Check Kinane out on YouTube if you're ready for "a bleak, misanthropic, Ernest Hemingway look-alike with a penchant for suicide jokes," as one British media outlet described him. They're, uh, the happy kind of suicide jokes. Honest.
Originally from Boca Raton, Florida, Eric André now lives in Los Angeles by way of New York and performs live almost every night of the week. Andre brings a manic energy to the stage, combining autobiographical experiences, politics, and experimental psychedelic rambling. He has been doing stand up and sketch comedy in New York and Los Angeles since 2004, but began his career in Boston while attending Berklee College of Music.
A city dweller all his life, Roy grew up in Chicago's ethnically diverse Rogers Park neighborhood, the son of an ex-Jesuit who worked for Loyola University Chicago, and a psychotherapist. Growing up white and Catholic in a neighborhood full of African Americans, Orthodox Jews, Nigerians, Mexicans, Indians, Pakistanis, and every ethnic and religious group imaginable gave Roy a unique perspective on getting along in a crowded world. Roy's lifesaving heart surgery and altruistic parents gave him an appreciation of the importance of comedy as a means to social change. Chicago's rich cultural heritage, economic
differences, and fast-paced lifestyle contributed to his observations on how we get by in a changing world.
