Host/MC Joshua Snyder FLAPPCAST, COMEDY STORE, FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB
Joshua Snyder grew up in beautiful and pastoral Colorado, where he did not participate in such activities as mountain climbing, rafting, spelunking, and power walking. His parents taught him that sex was a natural act, and that he should use his time in college to "have fun." (his parents are currently looking into adopting their own grandchildren).
Josh has gone on only three dates in his lifetime, and each ended as it began: with a skin rash.
Hobbies include tracking changes of hair style on the extras in Star Trek: The Next Generation, trying to cry, and crying.
The lure of Southern California's market research facilities could not keep Josh in Colorado. He currently works as a Client Service Representative, where he makes name tags, defends the dignity of the office printers, and shows clients how to use the coffee machine with only one button on it.

Comedian Dave Reinitz THIS AMERICAN LIFE, BBC, TRAVEL CHANNEL, KPFK,
Dave´s unique perspective and sarcasm gives us a hilarious hour of stand-up comedy that won´t soon be forgotten. Taking nothing for granted Dave challenges "normal" beliefs and expectations. He finds humor wherever common sense is in jeopardy, such as the prescription drug industry, in ordering a simple cup of coffee and genetically engineered food "of course the bugs won´t eat it , it taste like crap". Like a modern day minimalist Robin Hood, Dave steels small things from big companies, not just to get even but to feel even. Well-traveled and semi educated, Dave appeals to the smart and silly sides of the audience. Raised by 1960s radicals in upstate New York, Dave lists George Carlin, Bill Maher, and John Stewart as artistic influences. BOOK

Hello! I'm Shondalia White, pronounced Shonda-lee-ah, and I absolutely love creating funny, dynamic, and memorable characters! If you grew up in a dysfunctionally normal family in Flint, Michigan you would have lots of characters too. Yes, I said dysfunctionally. I've had the opportunity to showcase this while performing on the house team "Popular Science" at IO West Theater in 2010, my mini web sketch series "What The?!" on YouTube at youtube.com/WhatTheSketches and my stand-up sets at Flappers Comedy Club and The Comedy Store Hollywood to name a few. I love being an Actor/Comedian here in LA! Follow me on Twitter & instagram @ShondaliaWhite WEBSITE | | MYSPACE |
