IFC Presents The 2012 Comedy Bang Bang Nativity Pageant
Born January 27th, 1969 in Sterling, Virginia, Patton Oswalt started headlining comedy clubs in 1996. A noted comedian, actor, and writer (Patton has written for MadTV), he has had roles both in film and on the small screen, such as Magnolia and the sitcom King of Queens.
Oswalt's style of stand-up comedy is often described as acerbic and sarcastic, and it covers a great deal of subject matter. Topics range from pop culture frivolity such as comic book supervillains and 1980s hair metal to deeper societal issues like American excess, rampant materialism and foreign policy. Critics have recognized Oswalt for employing keen wit, biting insight and unabashed love of the absurd. Quite a few of his routines are about vice, especially pornography and alcohol. A famous line: "Do you think you have a problem when you refer to all alcohol as 'pain-go-bye-bye-juice'?"
Oswalt has described himself as a "man without a country" in that he dislikes both George W. Bush and hippies. In February 2004, some jokes critical of President Bush got him booed off the stage in Pittsburgh.
In 2004 Oswalt released a comedy album entitled Feelin' Kinda Patton and later that year a longer, unedited version of the same recording called 222, both through the United Musicians collective. He is also on a split EP called "Patton Vs. Alcohol Vs. Zach Vs. Patton" with Zach Galifianakis.
Sarah Kate Silverman is a Jewish American comedian, writer, actress, singer and musician. Her satirical comedy addresses social taboos and controversial topics such as racism, sexism, and religion.
Silverman first gained notice as a writer and occasional performer on Saturday Night Live. She starred in and produced The Sarah Silverman Program, which ran from 2007 to 2010, on Comedy Central. She often performs her act mocking bigotry and stereotypes of ethnic groups and religious denominations by having her comic character endorse them in an ironic fashion.
With his unique sense of humor, profound dry wit and likeable demeanor, Kevin Nealon has established himself as one of the premiere television, theatrical and stand-up comedians of his generation.
As a cast member of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE (1986-1995), Kevin is most recognized for the characters he created, including; ‘The Subliminal Man,’ ‘Hans and Franz,’ and anchoring ‘Weekend Update.’
Currently, Kevin can be seen on Showtime’s, Golden Globe winning hit series, “WEEDS.” He also provides the voice for Glenn Martin DDS on Nick at Nite, currently in its second season. Kevin also taped his first one-hour stand up special, ‘Now Hear Me Out’, which is airing on Showtime and is also available on DVD.
Nealon, who made his film debut in the 1987 romantic comedy, ‘Roxanne,’ with Steve Martin, has gone on to star in over two dozen comedies, including ‘Happy Gilmore’ and ‘The Wedding Singer,’ both with Adam Sandler, ‘Anger Management’ with Jack Nicholson, ‘Daddy Day Care’ with Eddie Murphy, ‘Grandma’s Boy,’ and most currently, ‘Just Go With It,’ with Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman, to be released Feb. 14th, 2011.
He recently published a comedic memoir that chronicles his life and his experience with going through his wife’s pregnancy called, “Yes, You’re Pregnant, But What About Me?”
Raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Nealon has a degree in Marketing from Sacred Heart University and currently resides in Los Angeles.
For over fifteen years, Marc Maron has been writing and performing raw, honest and thought-provoking comedy for print, stage, radio and television. A legend in the stand-up community, he has appeared on HBO, Conan, Letterman, his two Comedy Central Presents specials and almost every show that allows comics to perform. His book based on his solo show, The Jerusalem Syndrome: My Life as a Reluctant Messiah, is out of print and overpriced by vendors who think it might have some collectors value'. His three CDs, "Not Sold Out', 'Tickets Still Available' and 'Final Engagement' are comedy cult classics.
Tim Heidecker (born February 3, 1976) is an American actor, comedian, musician, writer and director. He is one half of the comedy team of Tim and Eric. Heidecker, along with Eric Wareheim, created the television shows Tom Goes to the Mayor and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job.
Robert "Bob" Odenkirk (born October 22, 1962) is an American actor, comedian, writer, director and producer. He is best known as the co-creator and co-star of the HBO sketch comedy series Mr. Show with Bob and David.
In the 1980s and 1990s, he worked as a writer for such notable shows as Saturday Night Live, Get A Life, The Ben Stiller Show, and The Dennis Miller Show. In the mid-1990s, Odenkirk and David Cross created the Emmy-winning sketch comedy program Mr. Show, which ran for four seasons and ultimately became a cult success.
In the early 2000s, Odenkirk discovered Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, and helped the pair create and produce the television series Tom Goes to the Mayor and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!. To date, he has directed three films: 2003's Melvin Goes to Dinner, 2006's Let's Go to Prison, and 2007's The Brothers Solomon. Odenkirk currently appears in the role of Saul Goodman in AMC's Breaking Bad.
"A brilliantly awful persona of an old-school, C-list funnyman—the kind with an ill-fitting tuxedo and an enormous, greasy combover—on a very bad night. Neil Hamburger toys with an audience's expectations (and patience), and indeed his act is a kind of rude commentary on stand-up comedy altogether."—(New York Times)
America's Funnyman Neil Hamburger is the hardest working comedian in existence, performing up to 399 shows a year to critical acclaim and audience bewilderment. He has toured as the hand-picked opener for Tenacious D and Faith No More, appeared on TV shows ranging from Fox News' "Red Eye" to Tim and Eric Awesome Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live, and worked extensively with Tom Green on his internet talk show. Among his dozen or so albums and DVDs is the new LP release Hot February Night.

Nick lends his voice to the animated series, "The Life and Times of Tim," for HBO, on which he plays Stu, Tim's best friend. Nick's Comedy Central hour-long special, Thank You Very Cool, premiered in January 2011.

TOMPKINS and Paul garnered a WGA nomination for his work as a writer & correspondent on HBO's REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER.
