Greg Stone's a seasoned stand-up comedy pro with an easygoing, laid-back style. He works long stories into clear, pithy statements about how crazy our world can be.

Born during a freak hailstorm in Texas, Jason’s mom sensed early that something was off. Turns out that something, was Comedy. Jason's mix of colloquial philosophy and absurdist observation have made him a must-see for comedy fans of all ages. His standup has been described as “…like getting the best advice ever from the dumbest guy you know.” As an actor, improv and sketch comic, Jason found success, but it wasn't until he stepped onto the standup stage that he realized his true calling (and that he could still do those other things). He has since appeared on standup stages across the U.S., on the big screen (in a series of unprofitable indy films), on the small screen (in Orange is the New Black and 30 Rock), in a ton of commercials (including Toyota 4Runner: Snakebite and GEICO: Happier than a Witch in a Broom Factory), and on the very small screen (in a bunch of ridiculous internet videos). You can find out more about Jason by visiting his website at www.JasonSalmon.com or His YouTube Channel (Jason Salmon) or by following him on Twitter (@JasonTSalmon) or Instagram (@JasonSalmonComedy) or write him a letter.
The high-energy, take-no-prisoners, comedy of ALEX PAVONE is not to be missed. A super-honest storyteller, Alex uses his Italian background and colourful acquaintances to weave a laugh-filled web of comic excitement. Born and raised in Woodbridge, Ontario, Pavone has been making crowds laugh since 2007. He has performed at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival and has toured at clubs and colleges all over North America. “Alex Pavone is a young, cocky stand-up in his mid-20s who’s been doing comedy for about five years. Last year, I saw him perform several times in short sets where his impressive, manic delivery burned up the Yuk Yuk’s stage. Often he was so high-strung, he walked out into the crowd – on people’s tables, no less – and continued his act. Guy’s got balls.” (Full Story) – Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine

Funny, smart, fresh, magnetic. These are just some words that describe the comedy of Neko White. Born in 1993, Neko has been a professional stand-up comedian since 2007 at the age of 14. In 2014, Neko taped his first one-hour stand-up special, Introducing Me. As a personality, Neko has stolen the show on MTV 2’s Hip Hop Hollywood Squares, and Elite Daily’s wildly popular Gen Why show. As a stand-up comedian, Neko has appeared on Axs Tv's Gotham Comedy Live, Sirus XM's "Sway In the morning Show" FOX’s Laughs, Popcornflix’s Live at New York Comedy Club, and a documentary on his life entitled One Mic. A native of Harlem, Neko began his comedy career the first day of high school when a teacher asked if anyone in the class had a talent. Being a shy kid who never thought he would do stand-up, he felt inspired. “Something just came over me that said ‘Go tell jokes.’ I went up in front of eight people and it worked. It’s been comedy ever since.” Now a professional working comedian there is no stopping this twenty something from chasing his dream of being the best comedian he can be. Following in the footsteps of his favorite comedians Katt Williams, Chris Rock, Bernie Mac and Dave Chappelle. Armed with a well-developed view of the ever changing world around him, quick wit, and very endearing charm. Neko’s material is a mix of social commentary and personal analysis that hits on every target from the most topical controversy to his own self-image. Not to mention a tenacious work ethic that leads White to do more than 500 shows a year. He hones his skills on the comedy club circuit of New York City, a regular at top comedy clubs such as Caroline’s on Broadway, Comic Strip Live, Broadway Comedy Club, and New York Comedy Club. He has performed in the New York Comedy Festival and opened for headliners including Donnell Rawlings and Jay Pharoah. Neko has been described by fans and reviewers as “a breath of fresh air” and “an endearing old soul.” Neko’s biggest supporter was his grandmother who would tell Neko before he left for shows: “Knock ‘em dead, kill ‘em.” After her passing, Neko vowed to make his grandmother proud. It’s safe to say that grandma can rest assured because her baby boy is still knocking them dead and does not show any signs of slowing down.

Geno Bisconte has been described by fellow comics, (to his face at least), as a “fast talking wise guy…that you just have to love.” This five-year veteran of the Philly and DC circuit now brings his talents to the New York City club scene- but not before leaving his mark back home. Geno brings a resume that includes gigs as current spokesman for the Delaware Lottery, roles in several indie films shot in the Philadelphia area, and writer of a monthly humor column for entertainment magazines. His comedy focuses on the one thing he knows- his life or lack thereof. “I absolutely love what I do but I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Everyone’s life is unique to them, which is also the very thing that makes it odd to everyone else and, in the end, so comical. So feel free to laugh at me but in doing so, realize that you also laughing at yourself and everyone else, and I believe that’s the beauty of our individuality.” Geno adds that his true passion is making people smile whether it be through comedy, acting, or anything in between. “I argue whether there is anything more beautiful than another person’s smile…sometimes it just takes a penis joke bring it out!” We told ya’ he was loveable…
