Karl Hess
Karl Hess
Karl Hess is a person & stand-up comedian, writer and actor who lives in Los Angeles. He is the only person ever to do all of those things. He also enjoys tacos and leisure.

Karl has performed at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, SXSW, San Francisco Sketchfest, The Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta at which he was a finalist, HellYes Fest in Austin & New Orleans, and numerous others whose inclusion might render this biographical blurb unwieldy and verbose, which, let's be honest, nobody here has time for. He has been featured on Tru TV's "World's Dumbest..", FUSE, AXS TV, numerous national commercials, written for MTV, contributes to VICE and he plays regularly at the top shows in LA, as well as all across this great nation.
Kate Berlant
Kate Berlant is an actor, stand-up, and writer who was recently profiled by The New York Times as a "magnetic improvisational comic" at the forefront of experimental comedy. She's set to appear this year in Dean, a feature film directed by Demetri Martin, and is also on Animals, a new HBO animated series from the Duplass brothers. Kate is one of Variety's "Ten Comics To Watch for 2015" and is one of the stars of Netflix's new original series, "The Characters."
Dan St. Germain
Dan St. Germain
"St. Germain has a playful, freewheeling sensibility that sends the audience tumbling through daydreams of his design." —Time Out, NY

Dan St Germain was chosen as a featured comic in Variety's "10 Comics To Watch" list, was listed as one of Paste Magazine's Top 10 Great Underrated Comedians, named Time Out NY's "Comedy Break Out" of 2013, selected as one of Mandatory.com's "Comedians to Watch Out For" in 2014, and he's currently developing a show with FOX.

He's got a Half Hour special on Comedy Central and has appeared on Jimmy Fallon, Conan, Best Week Ever, @Midnight, We Love the 2000s, John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show, The Electric Company, Guy Code, and Friends of the People.

He's the creator and star of the web series Kicking Dan Out, was featured on My Damn Channel, In Security on Comedy Central Studios, and has collaborated with Above Average. Dan's been a guest on WTF with Marc Maron, Carolla, You Made it Weird, Ron and Fez, Bob and Tom, Fitzdog Radio, and The Artie Lange Show. He's starred in a Super Bowl commercial with Howard Stern, Jack Link's promos for Comedy Central, and was selected by Time Out New York as having one of the best jokes about New York City, on a list that included Woody Allen.

Check out My Dumb Friends, his podcast on the All Things Comedy Network and his album Bad at the Good Times on AST Records, both of which were listed by Paste Magazine as among the best podcasts and albums of 2014.

This winter he'll be hosting The Joke on HLN and appearing on New Girl.
Jon Daly
Jon Daly
Jon Daly is very funny. He's acted for television (Human Giant, Happy Endings) and film (Bride Wars, Mystery Team). He's starred in FunnyorDie videos (My Imaginary Friend is Fabio, Bieber 5021), and frequently performs at the UCB theatre in Los Angeles. He's also a pretty fantastic rapper as the non-Brett Gelman half of Cracked Out.
Yassir Lester
"Yassir Lester is a comic from Marietta, Ga. He is a writer for GIRLS on HBO, in which he will also be appearing. He has been on @midnight on Comedy Central twice and has never won. He was a judge on an MTV show called SNACKOFF, and it was probably cancelled because of him. He also wrote on BLACK DYNAMITE and MR. PICKLES on [adult swim]. There's other stuff too, but honestly who cares."
