LA-based stand-up comedian Brent Sullivan describes his act as a true interpretation of himself on stage. Full of dichotomies, he has been described as wonderfully sarcastic, lovingly condescending and “gay – but not gay.” Brent has been featured on the Comedy Central series “Live at Gotham” and developed his own live show, "Fag Life: A Conversation with Fred Phelps" at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. His live show became such a success he was given an extended run and continues to tour the show with the UCB Theater Company. Brent is also the co-creator and co-star of the hilarious web series "It Gets Betterish," which MTV’s Clutch Blog included on it's "5 Web Comedies to watch" list.

Josie went on to support Stewart Lee on his national tour, winning Chortle UK's Best Newcomer (2005) and Breakthrough Act (2007) awards. In 2006, her show “Kindness and Exuberance” won the Perrier Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe, and since then Josie has racked up three consecutive nominations for the Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Award and performed in Montreal, Melbourne (where she won the 2007 Barry Award), Adelaide and New Zealand. In 2015 she performed her show “Cara Josephine” in New York and Los Angeles after sold-out shows in Edinburgh and London, and, in 2016, she debuted her newest show “Something Better” at London’s Soho Theatre and The Barrow Street Theatre in NYC.
