  • Ben Gleib

    Ben Gleib

    Comedy

    Ben Gleib was just named by TBS one of the "funniest comedians working today." 

    He is host of the Emmy nominated comedy game show “Idiotest” in it’s 4th season on GSN, with over 200 episodes. It’s the most watched original program on the network. 

    His hilarious hour standup special “Ben Gleib – Neurotic Gangster" is currently airing on Showtime. 

    He's also a regular on “The Today Show” with Kathie Lee and Hoda, on their “Guys Tell All” segment, and you may have seen one of his recent appearances on "@Midnight with Chris Hardwick" on Comedy Central.

    For years Ben was best known as one of the most frequent regulars on "Chelsea Lately" on E! with over 100 appearances!

    His podcast "Last Week On Earth" on the Smodcast Network, debuted on iTunes Comedy at #9, and was #1 on stitcher for 20 straight weeks. 

    Gleib is the first comedian to ever live stream a full headline set on Facebook Live, and has been doing for one show in each city on his current tour 100% improvised, each getting hundreds of thousands of views. His act is chock full of hilarious material, but he's also one of the best improvisers in standup comedy. 

    An accomplished voice over actor, he voices characters in "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and "The Book of Life," and is one of the stars of "Jay and Silent Bob's Super Groovy Cartoon Movie." 

    He's been headlining comedy clubs around the globe since 2007, and has toured sold-out arenas with Chelsea Handler and Dane Cook. 

    Esquire once called him one of “Six comedians who could be comedy’s next big thing.” The other five were Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Demetri Martin, and Flight of the Conchords. It came true for all of them and it now seems to be Gleib's time.

  • Tiffany Haddish

    Tiffany Haddish

    Comedy

    When Tiffany Haddish walks into a room you know she is someone not to be reckoned with. In a mere few minutes you will be laughing so hard you will be crying, and then you might even cry when you hear how she got to this phenomenal point in her journey both on and off stage.
    It is a testament that the one person she credits her success to is her social worker which in itself says it all. Growing up in foster care in South Central Los Angeles, it was her excessive talking and imaginary friends that prompted her increasingly flustered social worker to steer her into standup comedy by enrolling her into the Laugh Factory Comedy Camp for children. When she returned and was placed with a white family in the valley, she thought her new classmates, who were also Caucasian, were celebrities from television. She even asked them for their autograph. Growing up in South Central, the only race of people she saw on television were white.
    Tiffany plays the outspoken, no-nonsense “Nakeisha” on NBC’s The Carmichael Show, alongside the show’s creator and star, Jerrod Carmichael which returns for a new season in 2017.
    Last year, Tiffany was seen co-starring alongside Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in the film, Keanu. And on July 21st of this year, Tiffany will be seen co-starring in the film Girl Trip opposite Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Regina Hall. This will be followed by Tiffany’s own one-hour stand-special premiering on Showtime.
    Today, Tiffany tours all over the world bringing her edge,
    unusual take on life and love and tons of laughter, introducing
    herself by announcing “She Ready” & “The Last Black Unicorn.”
    Haddish’s comedy has landed her on Jenny McCarthy’s Dirty
    Sexy Funny comedy tour. She has made appearances on the
    Tonight Show, Chelsea Lately and the Arsenio Hall Show. Haddish
    was an early stand out since first appearing on HBO's Def Comedy
    Jam, Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes? for TV One and on Comedy
    Central's Reality Bites.
    Not only is Tiffany a comedian, she has proven to be an
    unparalleled actress appearing in such diverse projects as the film
    comedy Meet the Spartans and the Lifetime drama Racing for Time,
    where she played a lead role opposite Charles S. Dutton and
    opposite Ice Cube in The Janky Promoters. Haddish debuted as
    Denise, a drug abusing woman dealing with social issues on
    Lifetime’s Racing for Time. Her other television credits included a
    recurring role on the Tyler Perry’s OWN soap opera series, “If
    Loving You Is Wrong,” Kevin Hart’s BET show Real Husbands of
    Hollywood and FOX’s New Girl.
    One of Tiffany's special passions is performing in a comedy
    show Chuckles Not Knuckles, a program she developed for inner
    city high school students that promotes nonviolence.
    Haddish sees herself as sexy as Halle Berry, as funny as Jim
    Carrey, raw like Richard Pryor with the comedic timing of Lucille
    Ball, smooth like Eddie Murphy, Jewish as Whoopi Goldberg, and
    hopes to someday have money like Oprah.

  • Michael Kosta

    Michael Kosta

    Comedy

    Michael Kosta is an accomplished stand-up comedian actor host and former professional tennis player. In fall 2015 Michael will be hosting new E! series Comment Section produced by Joel McHale. Michael was also recently featured on Fox Sport 1’s series Crowd Goes Wild where he and Regis Philbin lead a panel of sports experts in a lighthearted look at the daily happenings in the world of sports.  
     
    Kosta started out as an athlete; he is quick to point out that he was once-ranked number 864 in the world in professional tennis and earned over $11 000 on tour. Don't laugh that's $11 000 more than you made as a pro athlete.
     
    Kosta gained attention as a comedian when he broke out of the HBO Comedy and Arts Festival in Aspen. He quickly relocated to Los Angeles where he began his television career; he has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Chelsea Lately and Conan.  He also starred in his own half hour special Comedy Central Presents: Michael Kosta.
     
    Kosta’s debut album Comedy for Attractive People launched November 2014.
