Chris D’Elia is quickly becoming one of the most sought after comedians and actors in the comedy world.

D’Elia recently starred as “Danny” on the NBC comedy series Undateable, which centered on a group of friends who are living in Detroit and helping each other figure out their lives. On stage, D’Elia continues to cement his status as a force in standup comedy. He is a regular at Hollywood comedy clubs—where he performs multiples times a week—and continues to tour the US and Canada to sold-out crowds. His latest standup special, Incorrigible, debuted on Netflix in April 2015. He could also be seen on the dais of the highly anticipated Roast of Justin Bieber, which premiered in March 2015 on Comedy Central. In December 2013, he released his first one-hour Comedy Central special, White Male. Black Comic.

Tom Segura is a comedian originally from Cincinnati, Ohio. His specials MOSTLY STORIES (2016) and COMPLETELY NORMAL (2014) are currently streaming on Netflix. His television credits include CONAN, NOT SAFE WITH NIKKI GLASER, HAPPY ENDINGS, THE LATE LATE SHOW, COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS: TOM SEGURA, MASH UP and HOW TO BE A GROWN UP. Additionally, his noted podcast, YOUR MOM’S HOUSE, which he co-hosts with his wife, comedian Christina Pazsitzky, was a finalist for Best Comedy Podcast at the Stitcher Awards and profiled by VICE. When he’s not touring clubs, Tom continues to perform at the top comedy festivals in the world, including Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival, The Comedy Festival - Las Vegas, The South Beach Comedy Festival, and The Hong Kong Comedy Festival.

Originally from Dallas, Iliza moved to Los Angeles after graduating from Emerson College. She is the only female and youngest comedian to hold the title of NBCs Last Comic Standing. Her debut one-hour comedy special, War Paint, reached #1 on the iTunes charts and was named one of its Top 10 Albums of 2013. In early 2015, Iliza’s follow-up Freezing Hot, a Netflix Original Comedy Special, sealed her title as one of the hottest touring acts in America, with Esquire Magazine listing her as one of the top working comedians today.

Two-time Emmy Award winner Sarah Silverman is one of the most versatile talents in entertainment, with credits including that of actress, creator, writer, executive producer, comedian, and author. Silverman will next be seen in both The Book of Henry and The Lonely Island’s Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, both of which are set for release later this year. Silverman also continues to lend her voice to the Emmy-nominated Fox animated series Bob’s Burgers and has a recurring role on the Golden Globe-nominated Showtime series Masters of Sex, which will return for its fourth season this year.
