Invite Them Up!
Bobby Tisdale is a writer and comedian who has been a staple of the New York comedy scene for years. Along with Eugene Mirman, Bobby was the co-host of the wildly popular weekly show Invite Them Up in the East Village, which was the recipient of a Nightlife Award, and was recorded for a CD that was released on Comedy Central Records. He is currently a writer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and runs an invite-only comedy show show in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Brooklyn resident (and Russian immigrant) Eugene Mirman is a really great guy and comedian. Eugene has appeared on television, which is still a relevant medium for another few years. Some examples include: his own half hour special on Comedy Central, appearances on Conan O'Brien, a recurring role on HBO's Flight of the Conchords, Bob's Burgers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Lucy, Daughter of the
Devil and the Adult Swim live action series Delocated.

After a mere two and a half years as a stand-up, Che has leapfrogged through the ranks, appearing in Comedy Central's 2011 Comics to Watch showcase and nabbing his own night in Carolines' Breakout Artist Comedy Series. Currently in the midst of a banner year, he has already added two TV spots to his credits: Kurt Braunohler's new game show, Bunk, and John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show.
Mehran Khaghani is a standup comedian, comedic director, and comedy event producer based in the Boston Metro area, of Iranian descent. In 2010, a reader survey in the Boston Phoenix named him Boston's best comedian of the year.
Michael Ian Black
Beloved by young and old, Michael Ian Black is America's foremost comedy maker. Does Michael perform stand-up comedy? And how! He regularly tours the country performing his ribald brand of humorous jokes and observations. Michael's new Comedy Central special and CD, "Very Famous," will premiere in August 2011 and will be followed by a national tour, "Black is White". His first comedy CD, "I Am A Wonderful Man" was released in in 2007.
Fans of sketch comedy might know Michael's work from such seminal television programs as "The State," "Viva Variety," "Stella" and "Michael and Michael Have Issues," all of which he co-created, wrote and starred in. Those with a more mainstream appetite may look back with fondness on Michael's role as the quirky bowling alley manager 'Phil' on the NBC show "Ed," a role which earned Michael no awards or nominations. Nostalgia enthusiasts may recall his adorable commentary on VH1's "I Love the..." series. Movie roles include "Wet Hot American Summer," "Take Me Home Tonight" and "The Baxter." Michael is the co-writer of the 2007 comedy, "Run, Fatboy, Run," directed by David Schwimmer and starring Simon Pegg, Hank Azaria and Thandie Newton. He wrote and directed the 2006 release, "Wedding Daze," starring Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher.
He is also the author of the contemporary classic "My Custom Van (and 50 Other Mind-Blowing Essays That Will Blow Your Mind All Over Your Face)," and the children's books "Chicken Cheeks," "The Purple Kangaroo," "A Pig Parade Is A Terrible Idea" and the forthcoming "I'm Bored," all published by Simon & Schuster. His memoir, "You're Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death and Other Humiliations" will be released in February, 2012. Michael is also the co-host of a popular podcast with Tom Cavanagh called "Mike and Tom Eat Snacks." His newest project is a book collaboration with conservative writer Meghan McCain entitled "Stupid for America," to be published by DeCapo Publishing in 2012. Michael Ian Black: truly an American treasure.
