    New York City-based comedian and actor Todd Barry is widely recognized for his roles as the bongo-playing “Third Conchord” on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords and Mickey Rourke’s deli boss in 2009 Oscar winner The Wrestler and renowned throughout the entertainment industry for his nuanced measured and thoroughly original approach to stand-up. Drawing audience members in with his deadpan self-deprecation and ability to pile punchline upon punchline his decidedly low-key stage persona belies a deeply intelligent often biting occasionally absurdist worldview one lauded by discerning fans who seek a fresh yet honest update to traditional observation and social commentary.

    Boasting multiple stand-up appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman Late Night with Conan O’Brien Jimmy Kimmel Live! and two Comedy Central Presents specials   and his latest one hour Comedy Central special Super Crazy. Todd’s resume also includes such hit TV shows as Louie Delocated Bored to Death Tim and Eric Chappelle’s Show Sex and the City and even Sesame Street. Among his additional feature-film highlights are Todd Phillips’s Road Trip Louis CK’s Pootie Tang and Mitch Hedberg’s Los Enchiladas.  You can see him soon at Sigourney Weaver's right hand man in Amy Heckerling's Vamps and as Paul Rudd's co-worker in David Wain's Wanderlust. Internationally he has performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival the Vancouver International Comedy Festival and Kilkenny Ireland’s Cat Laughs Festival. 

    Todd has been heard on both The Howard Stern Show and The Bob & Tom Show and his albums Medium Energy Falling Off the Bone and From Heaven are available from Comedy Central Records Amazon and iTunes. He has earned the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival’s Jury Award praise from Ricky Gervais as one of the best comedians of 2009 and accolades from The Onion’s A.V. Club which declared Medium Energy one of the best comedy albums of the decade. 

    Todd was the subject of a recent New York Times Arts section cover story which referred to him as a “master of standup” and noted “when it comes to live performance few comics are more consistently funny.”
    In April 2013 the Todd Barry Podcast debuted. It reached #1 on the iT

    Comedian actor and writer Josh Wolf has become one of the most sought after personalities in comedy today. From adding his quick witted commentary on comedy round tables to becoming a New York Times Bestselling Author writing on hit television shows and headlining stand-up comedy tours across the nation Wolf has proved time and time again he is one of the most dynamic and multi-faceted comedians in the entertainment business. Wolf was a regular round table guest and writer on the hit E! series “Chelsea Lately ” and recently appeared as a performer on the new E! series “After Lately.” In March 2013 Wolf debuted  his latest book “It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Single Dad.” Funny and brutally honest the book details Wolf’s adventures as a struggling stand-up comedian while juggling being a single parent in Los Angeles.

     Born in Boston Massachusetts and raised in Amherst- Wolf had a love for comedy and making people laugh from an early age. As a teenager he took to the stage in the Boston area performing his first stand up show when he was 15 years old. By the time he was in his mid-twenties he was ready for a fresh start and moved to Seattle Washington in hopes of expanding his comedy career. He was able to get more stage time and practice in the comedy world as indie musicians were dominating Seattle’s live entertainment scene. When he was 28 Wolf decided to make the move to Los Angeles. After several years in Seattle he had made his mark in the local comedy circuit and wanted to play with the big boys of comedy. He quickly discovered it wasn’t any easier being a small fish in a saturated comedy pond than a big fish in the entertainment pond of a port city.

     In 1999 Wolf got his first big break performing a one man show at the HBO Workspace- which landed him a talent deal at 20th Century Fox and a deal for his own television series with ABC. A deal with NBC soon followed. While testing the waters on the television front Wolf began writing for TV and quickly found it was another aspect of the entertainment business that he loved. He wrote on numerous sitcoms including “Yes Dear ” Will Smith’s “All of Us ” and “Cuts ” starring Shannon Elizabeth. He soon decided he wanted to dedicate all his time to writing and stepped down from stand up and appearing on camera.

     In 2006 Wolf returned to television appearing on the fourth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” This also marked his return to sitcoms recurring on the hit series “My Name Is Earl” from 2006-09 and recurring and writing for “Raising Hope” in 2010-11. 2009 was also a banner year for Wolf as he started making regular appearances on Chelsea Handler’s hit E! television series “Chelsea Lately ” and he toured nationwide with stand-up comedy sensation Larry the Cable Guy. Wolf also found a way to tap into his passion for sports and hosted two seasons of “The College Experiment ” a comedic weekly online college sports show for Fox Sports. In 2011 Wolf ended his touring with Larry the Cable Guy and committed to appearing on “Chelsea Lately” once a week while in conjunction writing for the show. He also became a New York Times Bestselling Author for his contributions to Chelsea Handler’s book Lies that Chelsea Hander Told Me.” In 2012 Wolf landed a book deal with Grand Central Publishing to pen his first book written solo “It Takes Balls: Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Underprepared Single Dad.” He also recently wrote a screenplay feature for Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison.

    Wolf currently lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife Beth. In his down time he loves to hang out with his wife and kids Trevor Kaitlynn and Jacob. On the charity front Wolf has a passion for supporting the troops & actively participates with various organizations.
