"Comedy comes naturally to me," says stand-up comedian and actor Joey Gay, who mines his laughs from his infamous surname, his colorful childhood in Brooklyn and his place in the family as the younger brother of five sisters, which gave him a unique perspective from an early age on the differences between men and women. Reminded how short life is by his father's death, Gay decided to pursue his dream of going into show business. He's been entertaining audiences ever since, and is now a regular on Comedy Central, New York comedy hotspots like Caroline's on Broadway, Comedy Village, Laugh Factory and Catch a Rising Star. In addition to performing at top clubs across the country, he has also appeared at casinos such as the Borgata and Resorts in Atlantic City and Foxwoods in Connecticut. Gay says he wanted to be on "Last Comic Standing" so he could "compete against the best comics in America," and describes his style of comedy as "the same as my style of dance... doing what is least awkward." As an actor, he has appeared on NBC's "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Deadline." ON the big screen, Gay appeared in the films "Close Strangers," "Exit 8A," "Times Modem," "The Vibe" and "The Play." He has also appeared on several cable shows, including MTV's "Damage Control." n his spare time, Gay has been working on a documentary about New York City's historic comedy clubs, which feature interviews with some of the biggest names in comedy, including Woody Allen, Bret Butler and Richard Lewis.
Jackie Byrne is a stand-up comic, actor and host who is known for being super fun, sassy and quick witted! She's "the girl next door" with an expressive face and a Jersey attitude. Jackie brings her bubbly and spontaneous energy to audiences all our the country. She was born into a dysfunctional Italian-Irish family, but is ever the cockeyed optimist. She is the resident feature comic at Uncle Vinnie's Comedy Club, has worked the mic at legendary venues such as: Bananas Comedy Club, Comedy Works, Levity Live, Laugh it Up and Stress Factory and has opened for some comedy legends such as Gilbert Gottfried, Lynne Koplitz, Julia Scotti and Rich Vos.
Jackie just recently filmed #thatmovieaboutnjcomics directed by the brilliant comic, Bonnie McFarlane and can be seen as "Beth" in the feature film, Seclusion released on Amazon. She has studied and performed improv and sketch comedy at The Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City and her writing and acting have been featured in sketches on FunnyorDie.com and Buzzfeed.
Jackie lives in the Dirty Jerz with her mensch of a husband and continues to pay off her B.F.A. in Theater. She holds Reverend status from The Universal Life Church (a.k.a she can marry you) and a grudge for never being cast as "Annie" at any point in her childhood.
