Christian Finnegan is a stand up comedian who is perhaps best known as one of the original cast members of VH1's "Best Week Ever". "Chappelle's Show" fans will recognize him as 'Chad', the only white roommate in the infamous "Mad Real World" sketch. And pinko Communists know Christian from his regular appearances on MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann". Christian is a fixture on Comedy Central, having starred in countless network interstitials, the shows "Premium Blend" and "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and in his own special, "Comedy Central Presents: Christian Finnegan". Christian was also the host of TV Land's "Game Time" and has appeared on "The Today Show" and "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson".
JIM GAFFIGAN has proven himself a major talent beloved to a wide range of audiences, achieving accolades and awards for his stand-up comedy, acting, and writing.
His clever, quiet style has made him one of the top five most successful touring comedians in the country today and his CDs and DVDs have reached platinum sales. Gaffigan has had an unprecedented number of appearances on late night's "Letterman" and "Conan." His writing and voice work on the animated series "Pale Force" for Conan led to nominations for both a Broadband Emmy and a Webby Award.
Gaffigan has had breakout guest appearances on many comedies and dramas ranging from HBO's cult hits "Flight of the Concords" and "Bored to Death" to dramatic roles in all three versions of "Law & Order".
In recent years, Gaffigan has also become a mainstay on the big screen with memorable roles in "Going the Distance", "Away We Go" and "It's Kind of a Funny Story." Gaffigan will next be seen alongside Jennifer Connolly, Ed Harris, Pierce Bronson, and Greg Kinnear in the highly anticipated film "Salvation Boulevard" which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011.
Further broadening his career, Gaffigan stars in his first Broadway production, "That Championship Season". As part of the highly acclaimed play, Gaffigan appears in the ensemble alongside Chris Noth, Brian Cox, Jason Patric, and Kiefer Sutherland. The play premiered on March 6 and runs through May 29, 2011.
In the Fall of 2011, Gaffigan sold a sitcom that he will write and star in for the NBC network. He will be starting 2012 off with a 30 city national tour called Jim Gaffigan: The America Tour sponsored by Comedy Central.
"If Steven Wright, Mos Def and Dave Chappelle had a baby, that would be disgusting, but it would sound like Hannibal Buress. The funniest young comic I've seen in years." – Chris Rock
Chicago-bred New York-based stand-up comedian Hannibal Buress established himself as a master of "comedic jokes related to personal stories, current events, the streets, and even food" (yes, someone actually wrote and published that line) in ANIMAL FURNACE, his COMEDY CENTRAL original one-hour stand-up special that premiered May 20.
Hannibal Buress has appeared on THE LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE!, THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON, CONAN and numerous other late night TV shows. He has also made prime time appearances on LOUIE and 30 ROCK, and is the co-host of the Adult Swim series THE ERIC ANDRE SHOW.
Buress has previously worked on the writing staffs of 30 ROCK and SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, and released his debut album, MY NAME IS HANNIBAL, in 2010 on Stand Up! Records.
Though perpetually touring, Buress considers New York City, where he hosts a weekly Sunday comedy night at Brooklyn's Knitting Factory, to be his place of residence. He lives with zero pets and an XBOX 360, and has a cable package with the Starz network but never watches it.
Liam McEneaney has been a professional comedian for the past seven years. Starting on the Lower East side open mic scene, he has since gone on to be the head writer for the Humor Network, has written for the monthly comedy magazine Jest, and Sheek, a women's magazine in Australia. Liam has appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, and is a regular panelist on VH1's "Best Week Ever." He was called "One of Ten Stand Out Stand Ups Worth Watching" in BackStage magazine, and has gotten write-ups in Time Out NY and the Irish Echo.
