    Donnell Rawlings

    Comedy

    2016 has already started off with a bang for Donnell, he has already been cast in Kevin Smith’s pilot Hollyweed.  2015 was a huge year for Donnell Rawlings,he lit the stage at The Dubai Comedy Festival.  He also rocked it at Montreal Comedy Festival. He has been touring all over with Dave Chappelle. In 2014  he killed during a record number of shows working with Dave Chappelle at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. You just saw him starring in his own show as Judge Rawlings on MTV2’s Guy Court. Donnell was also was a cast member  on MTV2’s Guy Code. Donnell can be seen hosting Staann' Dup to be seen on StarzBlack.  He lends his voice in a recurring role as “Another Cat Named Rally” on the hit animation Black Dynamite as well being featured in Adult Swim’s animation. Donnell continues to tour heavily, performing his intelligently bold stand-up throughout the US, Europe, and the Caribbean.

         

    Donnell is an overnight success a decade in the making.  He made a splash in the DC comedy clubs going from a heckler in the audience to HBO's Def Comedy Jam in a period of six months. You’ve seen him as 'Ashy Larry' on Comedy Central’s award winning and critically celebrated Chappelle’s Show, where he joined Dave Chappelle as both as a writer and performer. He will also be featured in Queen Latifah's new movie Percentage. His 1-Hour Stand-Up “Ashy to Classy” premiered on Comedy Central in October of 2010.

     

    He was a co-host on both Power 105’s (NY’s #1 Hip Hop and R&B radio station) morning show “Egypt and Ashy in the Morning” and “The Big Tigger Morning Show” on WPGC in Washington DC, and he enjoyed weekly guest appearances on New York’s Hot 97 Morning Show. He was a regular on E!’s “Chelsea Lately", starred in Comedy Central's “Reality Bites Back,” and was the resident “Funny Guy” on the Ricki Lake Show. In 2007, Donnell co-created and starred in Heavy.com’s hit web series “From Ashy to Classy”, which was picked up for a second round of episodes. His movie of the same name screened at the 2011 L.A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival. 

     

    As an actor Donnell has also appeared in the Law & Order series, Special Victims Unit (SVU) and Criminal Intent (CI) as well as NBC’s Third Watch, the Emmy-Award winning HBO Mini-Series: The Corner and as Day-Day Price on HBO’s Emmy-Award winning series “The Wire.”  On the big screen he could be seen in the blockbuster Spider-Man II.

     

    His rise to stardom may not have been “overnight”, but the journey itself has kept him edgy and relevant. Comedy's heavy hitters have noticed his talent with Neal Brennan, co- executive producer and co-head writer of Chappelle’s Show exclaiming “whenever we put Donnell in the game he’s going to hit a home run.” Jamie Foxx says, “That guy is a beast!” Wayne Brady commented that Donnell provides “amazing work on the show” and Dave Chappelle feels that “Donnell brings so much to the table...this very funny guy makes it look natural and easy.”  

  • Brad Williams

    Brad Williams

    Comedy

    Brad Williams possesses something that everyone can agree is funny: a disability. Brad is a dwarf. He has appeared on numerous TV shows including Mind Of Mencia Live at Gotham the Tonight Show Jimmy Kimmel Live and Pitboss. Brad has also performed for the troops all over the world because soldiers think dwarfs are funny too.

    Brad was born and raised in Orange County CA. He dropped out of college and started doing comedy at the age of 19. He toured as Carlos Mencia’s opening act for 5 years. Brad’s big break came when he would appear in numerous sketches on Comedy Central’s Mind Of Mencia TV show. Brad’s memorable roles on the show include playing a whore dwarf (“whorf”) the leader of an all dwarf basketball team joining Mencia at a Renaissance faire and giving a speech about his hatred of podiums.

    Brad’s show is high energy. Robin Williams called him “Prozac with a head.” Brad’s ability to make humorous observations on disability relationships sex and race are winning over audiences and proving that anyone can overcome their shortcomings.

  • Aida Rodriguez

    Aida Rodriguez

    Comedy

    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

    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.

    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.

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.
