NATHAN FRIZZELL (Company)
This is Nathan’s 7th- or 8th (maybe 9th)- show with this crazy group of folks. When not referring to himself in the 3rd person, Nathan often can be found referring to himself in the 2nd person. I really hope you like this show. I mean, I have put a lot of work into it. If you don’t, you could at least pretend you do and laugh. Loudly. That would be nice of you.www.nathanfrizzell.com

Marco has performed stand-up comedy and starred opposite Billy Dee Williams in the FunnyorDie.com sponsored, “The Most Interesting BLACK Man in the World”.
JASON MOYER (Company/Producer)
Jason really wanted to write something funny here. In fact, this sentence you are reading right now, had to be typed 10 times, because he kept deleting the previous sentence for fear that it wasn’t funny enough. Things like “Jason is the type of guy who likes to sip champagne while watching a sunset,” “Jason likes to run wild in a rainstorm,” or “Jason enjoys playing mahjong while drinking a Tequila Sunrise” had all been a sentence in this bio before they were deleted. But Jason thought better of it because, not only are those things ridiculous, but they are also true and Jason thought people might not realize that he was just being cute. www.thejasonmoyer.com
JUSTIN O’CONNOR (Company)
Justin is doing his 8th Sketch Show and we all know that after your 8th sketch show, you get a network sitcom. Since the last show, Justin has been successfully performing and improvising comedy for his 2 year old son, Oliver. Sadly, none of this writing will be seen in tonight’s show. Apparently, there is no room for extreme dancing and fart noise scenes which kill with the 2 year old demographic. Thanks to Susana for letting me sneak away for rehearsals.
BOBBY QUINN RICE (Company)
Bobby came from Colorado to study comedy at the Groundlings, I.O. West, and ACME comedy theaters. He performs improv and sketch comedy around the Los Angeles Area. Bobby has won awards for both comedy and theatrical performances working in film, tv, and for online comedic content. He has written and worked in sketch for NBC, Funny or Die, and recently “The Worlds Best Impressionist” with Dana Carvey. Go Denver Broncos
KELLY SCHUMANN (Company)
