Funny, smart, and chronically womanless…Tommy Taylor Jr. is a uniquely talented comedian with an equally diverse artistic repertoire. As an actor, comedian, filmmaker, and writer, Tommy is steadily paving his way towards success on stage, in front of the camera, and behind it.
Tommy is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University with multiple degrees in Computer Engineering, Public Policy, and Drama; he went on to receive an MBA from Howard University, during which he leveraged his diverse abilities. He gained small roles in movies such as “Die Hard 4”; became the face of the “Washington Post” ad-campaign; garnered roles in HBOseries (“The Wire”, “How To Make It In America“, and “VEEP“), and even appeared on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”.
Being a clean comedian, Taylor does not curse or get raunchy with his material. However, he still captivates audiences from all walks of life. From the rawest urban comedy clubs, to the most politically savvy mainstream rooms, Tommy uses a combination intelligence and gut-busting comedy that leaves the crowd in stitches.
Tommy’s acting experiences served as a catalyst for his own productions. Combining his love for technology and entertainment he formed Taylor Creative, LLC., a production company where he has produced critically acclaimed and award winning videos, commercials, films, and produced his original sketch comedy series“TheTommy Taylor Show” (TTS).
The TTS brings Tommy’s brand of “GOOD. CLEAN. COMEDY.” to television and the Internet. Tommy’s success has also impacted organizations such as DCTV (The Public Access Corporation of DC). The TTS won the most recent “Hometown Media Award” for the “Best Entertainment Program” in the nation, giving DCTV it’s first ever award in this category; won a “Monty Award” for Best Entertainment Program on MCT-TV; and is also a two time winner of DCTV’s “Viewers Choice Award”!
“The Tommy Taylor Show” has aried NATIONALLY on H20 Hip-Hop OnDemand (reaching 25 million homes), on ABC’s Local Point TV, DCTV, and The Real Hip-Hop Network ( reaching 2,000,000 homes in DC, MD, & VA via cable television, and averaged 100,000 views a month on the Internet). Tommy has also been feature in FORTUNE Small Business Magazine, Sept. 2007 Issue.
In the past few years, Taylor was selected twice as “Outstanding Emerging Artist Finalist” for the Mayor’s Art Awards, which are “the most prestigious awards conferred to artist by the District of Columbia”; ‘Filmmaker of the Month’ honors from the DC Film Office; Awarded the first ever ‘Producer of the Year’ from DCTV; ‘Best Actor’ award from CTV, and even had his comedy featured internationally as the “Tommy Taylor Takeover” on CanadaWatch.TV! With a heart for others, Tommy recently participated in a mission trip to Belize, where he helped organize a community concert and led youth arts workshops. Taylor relishes the opportunity to aid others, & especially enjoys helping other young artist grow in their craft through his artistic endeavors. Taylor strives to keep God first and to be a positive role model in the lives of young people, personally and artistically. As such he works with the Best Friends Foundation to use entertainment to help “At Risk” youth make positive choices in life. Taylor has also provided internships and apprenticeships for local college students, which has already returned success.
Kristina Kuzmic is a cheerleader for her fellow humans. It’s not something she ever anticipated doing, but after immigrating to America from Croatia during the war in her homeland and later facing more challenges (divorce, single parenting, poverty, depression…), Kristina wanted to be for others what she wished someone had been for her during her darkest hours.
Now, with over one billion video views, Kristina is providing her audience with encouragement, hope and humor in a role she never expected to fill.
In 2011, when Oprah crowned Kristina the winner of Mark Burnett’s reality TV competition “Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star,” Oprah said, “What is that THING?…That’s so charming and charismatic and connected to the audience that makes you feel like, ‘I know her, I want to be her, I’m like her’… Kristina has all of that. She is an ‘IT PLUS’ girl… I wanna watch her!”
Since working with Oprah, Kristina has branched out on her own, creating mom-centric videos about raising children and juggling all of life’s challenges. Her messages resonate with moms, dads, and even those who don’t have children. She has quickly become a viral sensation with well over 2.7 million Facebook followers. Kristina has a voice and personality that has proven to be a hit with a massive audience (from young millennials through Gen-Xers and even Baby Boomers).
The Huffington Post referred to Kristina’s videos as “Parenting comedy at its finest,” and The Inquisitr has praised her “witty charm.” People, Yahoo, Cosmopolitan, Us Weekly, Parents, and many more have posted articles on her creative parenting advice and unique humor, and media outlets across the country are picking up her videos and re-posting them. Kristina has quickly made a name for herself as a creative, yet unpretentious parent, as well as a world-renowned motivational speaker and comedian. She is currently touring the country with her “Hope & Humor” tour. Her first book, Hold On But Don’t Hold Still, will be released through Penguin Random House in February 2020.
Kristina and her husband live in Southern California, where her most important, rewarding, and exhausting roles include being a sanitation engineer, chef, chauffer, conflict resolution guru, and cheerleader for her three (mostly satisfied) clients – her children.

Be sure to support those appearing on stage; it's not as easy as you think! Sit down and watch the show from an empty seat in the showroom. You never know...you might learn something!
Chingo bling can be called a lot of things; A rapper, actor, producer, comedian, and social media phenomenon are just but a few of them. At the core of it all, you can call him an entertainer.
Chingo bling found his calling when he started broadcasting on his college radio station. He loved the idea of speaking to large audiences and made it his mission to be heard and seen by as many people as possible. He also found a knack for creating music, so he focused his efforts on building a career in music and was signed to a major record label. With a now sizable street cred, he began to explore his comedic voice. He launched his YouTube page and created his social media presence as a way for him to showcase his unique Mexican-american humor. In celebrating this, his star has grown and is just now beginning to shine.
Due to popular demand, he has hit the road and bringing live, stand-up comedy to sold out showrooms all over the USA. Chingo bling has also filmed his first comedy special for the mitú network that is now streaming on Netflix.
Comedian and actor Felipe Esparza got his start as a comedian all because someone asked him to list 5 goals in life. During a stint in rehab before he was 21, Felipe was asked what he wanted out of life. As a young immigrant growing up in the projects in Boyle Heights (East L.A.) and then as a teenage father with a drug and alcohol problem, it was a difficult task because he had never thought that far ahead. Among the items on that list, "to be happy", and "be a stand-up comedian" - because of how he connected to an old Bill Cosby album when he was younger. Up until that question, Felipe was under the impression that life was over at 18.
If you had told him back then that all this life experience would one day make people laugh, he wouldn't have believed it. From being raised in the projects in a family of 9 living in the most gang-infested neighborhood in the country to winning NBC's "Last Comic Standing", to selling out live comedy shows all over the country and being able to act in TV shows and movies, Felipe's life has been anything but boring. He worked for years as a stand-up comedian, opening on the road for fellow comedians such as Gabriel Iglesias and Paul Rodriguez, then took a leap of faith and went out on his own - which led to very little income and opportunity at first.
After the 16-year "overnight success" of winning Last Comic Standing, Felipe went on to produce his first hour long stand-up comedy special, "They're Not Gonna Laugh at You" (now on Netflix). He has also made several TV appearances such as recurring roles on "The Eric Andre Show" and NBC's "Superstore", TruTV's "World's Dumbest" and "Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey" and was the spokesman for a national Honda campaign and a national Target Mobile campaign. During his early years as a comedian, Felipe was part of the successful stand-up comedy TV show, "Que Locos" on Galavisión (the only English-speaking show on Spanish television). That show and the resulting tour helped launch the careers of several other Latino comedians such as George Lopez, Gabriel Iglesias and Willie Barcena.
Today, in addition to his live stand-up touring, Felipe hosts a weekly podcast on the All Things Comedy Network called "What's Up Fool?" that focuses on interesting stories from just about anybody. From renowned author and humanitarian Father Greg Boyle from Homeboy Industries, to actor Damian Chapa (Miklo from Blood In, Blood Out), to the lead detective on the Night Stalker serial killer case, to actor Emilio Rivera (from Sons of Anarchy) to even the "Incredible Hulk" who takes photos with tourists on Hollywood Blvd., Felipe believes everyone has a story to tell about how they got where they are, no matter who they are.
Recently, Felipe produced his second hour-long stand-up special with his wife Lesa, entitled "Translate This”, premiering on HBO September 30, 2017. He is also developing a sitcom with fellow comedian Dustin Ybarra and writers Bobby Bowman and Peter Murrietta - Felipe and Dustin will play brothers in a single-camera comedy to be produced by 3Arts Entertainment. He also continues to do live stand-up shows in comedy clubs and theaters around the country.

The multi-faceted actor also revived one of his most iconic roles in the highly-anticipated return of Mad About You, the long-running hit 90s comedy Reiser co-created and starred in with Helen Hunt. The Emmy, Peabody and Golden Globe-winning comedy ended in May 1999 and premiered 20 years later as a limited series on Spectrum Originals.

Ari Shaffir and Friends LIVE at Wiseguys with Mark Normand, Steve Rannazzisi, Ryan O' Neal and more to be announced!
Stand-up comedian, podcaster and actor ARI SHAFFIR describes his comedy as a puppet show--but way filthier and without the puppets. The New York native grew up Orthodox Jewish, spent 2 years in a yeshiva in Israel, and came back to America to lose his religion and become a comic. LA Weekly has called Shaffir “a gifted unyielding comic…a real force to be reckoned with.” This July, Shaffir released two Netflix specials called Double Negative which is presented in two 45 minute episodes called Children and Adulthood. Self-described as his version of a “Smashing Pumpkins Double Album,” this type of double header release hasn’t been seen since George Carlin’s 1972 release of FM & AM. In Children Shaffir discusses the pressure he is getting from his family and friends to have kids, and why he is getting more and more thoughts in his head about why he doesn’t want to do that and in Adulthood, he discusses the freedoms of being child-free. Decider.com called Shaffir’s Netflix debut “positively audacious.” Shaffir crearted and hosted the storytelling show, This is Not Happening, which aired on Comedy Central for 3 seasons. In 2016, Shaffir co-starred with Zach Galifianakis, Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm in Twentieth Century Fox’s comedy Keeping Up With The Joneses. Shaffir also hosts the wildly popular podcast, Skeptic Tank, a weekly interview show where he chats with everyone from parents to comedians to prostitutes “to help better understand humanity and also to make fart jokes.” The podcast is consistently among the top-rated podcasts on iTunes and averages over 100,000 downloads per week. Shaffir is also an avid sports fan and gets together with Sam Tripoli and Jayson Thibault once a week to record the Punch Drunk Podcast. Dubbed “an Asian massage for the real sports fans,” by The Podcast Tribune, these three stand-up comics share their sports thoughts, arguments, stories, fights, and bets. In the past 5 years, Shaffir has released 3 standup specials. The Double Negative special on Netflix and two specials on Comedy Central entitled Paid Regular and Passive Aggressive. Prior to these popular specials, Shaffir’s standup album Revenge for the Holocaust went to #1 on both iTunes charts and Amazon.com the week of its premiere. Ari made his late night debut on Conan in 2016. He continues to perform standup to sold-out crowds nationwide and has been featured at Montreal’s prestigious Just for Laughs Festival, San Francisco SketchFest, SXSW, the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, The Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival.For more information go to www.AriShaffir.com or follow Shaffir on Twitter - @AriShaffir.
