Max Silvestri
Max Silvestri
Max Silvestri is a comedian, writer and actor living in Brooklyn. New York Magazine called him one of the "Ten Comedians People Find Funny," which means at least one person who works at a magazine thinks he is funny. He was one of Paste Magazine's best comedians of the year, and he co-hosts Big Terrific every Wednesday at Cameo Gallery.
Mike Lawrence
Mike Lawrence
Mike Lawrence is a comedian born and raised in South Florida. He began doing comedy as a way to escape the dullness of his job at the McDonald's Drive-Thru and quickly fell in love with it. He moved to New York in 2007, where he could write about all of his miserable life experiences from a safe distance. He has since performed at the New York Comic Con -- a dream come true. He performed at the "New Faces" showcase at the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. He was also nominated for Best Male Comedian at the 2010 ECNY Awards and featured in Time Out New York. He made his television debut on "John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show" on Comedy Central on April 14, 2011.

James was a top-10 finalist on the most recent season of "Last Comic Standing" (NBC) and is a frequent contributor to Comedy Death-Ray Radio and other wild podcasts. He performs standup and characters live at Upright Citizens Brigade and at festivals, theatres, dive bars, party schools and radical political events across North America. Other credits include Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, The Late Late Show (CBS), FAce to Bush (Comedy Central), WordGirl (PBS) and The Onion Radio News, along with several underground cartoons and failed t.v. pilots. Check out his hit videos on Funny or Die, Atom, and YouTube -- and keep your chins up, you gorgeous nerdsluts: it's High Noon in the Garden of Good & Evil!
