Jay Mohr • Nick Di Paolo • Dave Attell
Michael Che • Jeff Norris • John Pizzi
Comedian, actor, radio host and best-selling author, Jay Mohr has been performing stand-up comedy since he was sixteen years old. With a career that has spanned over three decades, Jay has become an artist that is very difficult to define.
Jay Mohr is the rarest of entertainers. After 25 films and starring in his own groundbreaking series produced by Joel Silver and the late Ted Demme (Action) he starred in the CBS scripted comedy Gary Unmarried, which was critically acclaimed and was on for two seasons.
Born in Queens and raised on Long Island, Dave Attell got into stand-up comedy in the late eighties after graduating from New York University with a degree in Film and Television. Attell used this prestigious degree to land amazing jobs in the food service industry – as a waiter. At night he would hit the “open mic” circuit in Manhattan.
After many years, Attell worked his way up through the club scene onto the road, touring across America as a national headliner and developing a huge following among fans and the industry alike.
Nick Di Paolo
Nick Di Paolo’s honest and acerbic comedy has made him a sought after voice on stage, television and radio for years and earned him two Emmy Nominations for writing.
Di Paolo’s career took off after he appeared on “HBO’s Young Comedian Special”. He has since written and performed four stand-up specials and four CDs. The most recent standup effort being a one hour Showtime special entitled “Raw Nerve”.
Nick Di Paolo is probably one of the most authentic voices whether on or off stage. He’s referred to as a comic’s comic because there are no facades, no act. It’s all Nick Di Paolo, all the time.
Critics and audiences agree, NY-based writer and standup comedian Michael Che is a star on the rise. In the past year he has been named one of RollingStone’s “50 Funniest People,” Buzzfeed’s “50 Hottest Men in Comedy,” and Variety’s “Top 10 Comics To Watch.” A native of lower Manhattan, Che’s comedy uses humor to identify humanity in the most controversial actions. He applies street culture to world issues with a delivery that The New York Times describes as “a reflective, laid-back stage presence with jokes that draw as much from his city upbringing…as from blunt, insightful points that bring the abstract into focus.”
An energetic whirlwind of comedy! Jeff Norris is a favorite throughout Atlantic City, Las Vegas, New York as well as Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.
Winner of the 2013 Cape May comedy festival, Jeff’s shows have raised over $180,000 for victims of Super Storm Sandy.
