  • Brad Williams

    Brad Williams

    Comedy

    Pound for pound, Brad Williams is the funniest comedian in the country right now, and has become one of the most in-demand comedians working today. A California native, Williams started doing stand-up comedy as a teenager and has been touring successfully ever since, routinely selling out shows all over the country and the world.

     

    Williams has parlayed that success into a multitude of stand-up television experiences, including Live at Gotham, The Tonight Show, Dave Attell’s Comedy Underground, and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Most recently, his first one-hour special, Fun Size, was the highest rated on Showtime, and a year later, he followed that up with his second special, Daddy Issues, which was more successful than the first and prompted The New York Times to write “No one is doing it [stand-up comedy] more hilariously than Brad Williams.” His third special in three years was an uproarious one, hosting some of the edgiest comedians in the country from the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.

     

    Also an accomplished actor, Williams has appeared on numerous TV shows and feature films, including FX’s Legit, Sam and Cat, Mind of Mencia, Pitboss, a recurring role on the Hulu original show Deadbeat, and memorable roles in a plethora of movies, including Little Evil, which was produced by Scott Stuber (Ted), as well as the Netflix original Christopher Guest film, Mascots.

     

    In addition to stand-up and acting, Williams has become a dynamic on-air personality as well. His podcast with Adam Ray, About Last Night, is a mainstay on the iTunes charts. He is also a regular contributor on KROQ’s Kevin and Bean Show in Los Angeles, as well as Adam Carolla’s podcast, The Adam Carolla Show.

     

    Williams’ ability to make humorous and inspiring observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are consistently winning over audiences and proving anyone can overcome their shortcomings. His live performances are always high energy and frequently feature full standing ovations from those in attendance, which prompted the late Robin Williams to call him “Prozac with a head.”

  • Aida Rodriguez

    Aida Rodriguez

    Comedy

    When Aida was a teenager one of her relatives declared that she would
    end up a statistic, she did, she is 1 out of the 10 to make it to the finals of
    NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Aida Rodriguez’s “edgy, raw and in your face” style of comedy has
    set her apart in a world that celebrates funny over double standards. Catching the
    eye of some of the most recognizable names in Comedy, she is creating a
    lane of her own. Roseanne Barr doesn’t understand why Aida doesn’t have
    her own show yet and Keenan Ivory Wayans told the world that she is “like
    a dose of truth serum”.
    As a single mom of two, Aida has honed and nurtured her craft all while
    juggling the daily grind and stresses of family and career. While providing
    endless material, family remains the heart of the Aida Rodriguez
    experience. “Suddenly, the pages of my journal have become a laughing matter!”
    Aida is a regular on some of the nation’s most iconic comedy stages.
    She has also hosted and/or been featured on numerous television and radio broadcast
    programs including but not limited to, Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show, three-time host of
    the PBS’s Imagen Awards, Fox’s Laughs, Nickelodeon’s Mom’s Night Out, Parental Discretion,
    as well as NuVo’s Stand Up and Deliver seasons 1&2 and The Wedding Zinger. Aida recently was
    featured in Robert DeNiro’s latest film The Comedian after being handpicked by director Taylor
    Hackford was released on February 3, 2017. She will appear on Showtime this summer as the
    Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam’s first Latina and on PBS hosting the Imagen Awards for the 4 th time.
    Aida’s debut comedy album I’ll Say It For You is currently available on all digital platforms and
    when she’s not on your television or a local stage, you can always catch Aida on her weekly
    podcast Truth Serum on iTunes. Check out everything Aida at www.FunnyAida.com

  • Dean Delray

    Dean Delray

    Comedy

    Take one of the rockstar comics of old, drop 'em in today's cluttered world of over-sharing and passive-aggressive glad handing, then watch the sparks fly. DEAN DELRAY draws upon a life heavy metal and Harleys that began in the Bay Area thrash scene that birthed bands like Metallica and Exodus. Dean endured the ups-and-downs of music industry buffoonery before eventually landing onstage in America's toughest and most rewarding comedy clubs.

    Dean's no-holds-barred and hard-livin' perspective has been featured on "WTF with Marc Maron," "Mohr Stories," "You Made it Weird" and his own weekly podcast, "Let There Be Talk," on the All Things Comedy network. His guests have included Marc Maron, Bill Burr, Alonzo Boden, Jim Florentine, Marc Canter, Barry Katz, Riki Rachtman (Headbanger's Ball), Monte Pittman, Jesse Camp (ex-MTV VJ) and members of Pantera, Guns N' Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Queens of the Stone Age, The Mars Volta, Dokken, Skid Row, The Sex Pistols and more... 

    Before he found his calling as the motorcycle-riding, hard-driving comic he is today, Delray played in an international touring band, opening for Tom PettyLenny Kravitz and The Black Crowes and signing a record deal with Linda Perry (hitmaker for Gwen Stefani and Alicia Keys).

    Dean's comedy is rich with detail and a worldview that can only be gained through genuine life experience. His premises, punchlines and persona are 100% authentic, running the gamut from soft spoken subtlety, to wide-grinned court jester style antics to loud volume animation.

    He can be seen in "The Longshots" (starring Ice Cube), "Hellride" (from Executive Producer Quentin Tarantino) and "Maron" on IFC. 

    Dean's standup act is warm, inviting, and subversively full of conviction, just like the man himself offstage.

  • Jay Davis

    Jay Davis

    Stand-up

    At an early age, Jay was naturally doing comedy at his family functions having his great Uncle Raymond laughing so hard he almost fell out of his wheelchair. Jay moved to Los Angeles to pursue film acting. He booked a few national commercials, a bad B movie, the lead in a Disney after school special and a couple of featured roles on television. Auditions were few and far between so Jay realized he should start doing stand-up comedy professionally.

    Davis, craving stage time decided to create his own comedy night on the Sunset Strip at an Irish Pub. This Comedy night became one of the hottest and most talked about comedy rooms in comedy history. Comedians Dave Chappelle, Dane Cook, Alonzo Bodden, Tommy Davidson, Andrew Dice Clay, Jamie Kennedy, Rosanne Barr, Darrell Hammond, Pablo Francisco, Jay Mohr, Darren Carter, David Allen Grier, Paul Rodriguez were some of the many talented comedians that would frequent the show, or popped by to do a set. Since the closing of the Irish Pub Jay has moved his comedy producing skills into the World Famous Laugh Factory on the Sunset Strip.

    Davis produces/hosts the hottest comedy show in Los Angeles, Every Tuesday night, The "Life of the Party" Show from 10pm to 12:30am. He just wrote/produced/starred in an award winning "Best Comedy" short film for the 168 film festival. Jay has appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live and one of the stars of Dane Cook's movie "8 Guys", and just finished a 30 day comedy tour filming a documentary series, Dane Cook's "Tourgasm" with Robert Kelly and Gary Gulman, 9 episodes starting June 11th on HBO. Jay is currently auditioning for television & feature films as well as touring clubs & colleges across the country. Check his myspace page for upcoming shows at: www.myspace.com/jaydaviscomedy
