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.
In 1999, Josie Long won the BBC New Comedy Award at the age of just 17 - making her too young for the champagne that came as part of the prize. Despite the boost the award would have given to her comedy career, she took time off performing to complete her English degree at Oxford university, returning in 2003. Following the break, she was named best newcomer in the Chortle awards in 2005, and best breakthrough act the following year. In 2006, she also scooped best newcomer in the if.comedy awards for her solo Edinburgh debut, Kindness and Exuberance. She was subsequently nominated for the Edinburgh comedy award three years running: 2010, 2011 and 2012.
A rising young talent, Deyo is known for his sharp, quick material and near perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. In 2007, he had the incredible opportunity to perform at the prestigious HBO Aspen Comedy Festival. In 2011, he was named one of the year's best by the New York Post, has been heard on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show, and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
