When Flip Schultz was eight years old, he won a summer camp talent show by performing stand up comedy. There was never a doubt in his mind that comedy would be his future. For a while he performed wherever he could find an audience, whether at a family get together, bar-mitzvahs, seniors center; he didn't care. He just wanted to make people laugh. Finally, at 18, he braved a real comedy stage and won the open mic contest. For the next few years Flip performed at many comedy clubs (and bars) honing his craft, paying his dues and finding his comedic voice. And he still managed to earn his degree in theater. After leaving South Florida as a local favorite, Flip now lives in Los Angeles, tours in clubs & colleges all over the US and Europe, and has quickly become a sought after comic in Scandinavia.

Host/MC Allison Weber CMT, GAME SHOW NETWORK, HOLLYWOOD IMPROV, THE COMEDY STORE,
Since Allison was able to talk, she has wanted to entertain. Then, as a teenager, she picked up a guitar. Allison started honing her skills at writing lyrics, especially parody songs. After moving to LA in 2007, she formed her parodies into a stage-ready set. Her first taste of stand-up was at The World Famous Hollywood Improv in December 2008. Allison's raunchy yet sweet and witty style made her an instant hit. Soon after, she entered in the Fresh Faces of Comedy Contest and finished in the top 3 out of the 50 comics that competed. She has since been invited to perform at such festivals as the Hollywood Comedy Festival, the San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival (in both 2011 and 2012) , and the Boca Raton Winter Comedy Festival (in which she was the first place winner). You can see Allison performing today at the top Clubs across the country. BOOK
Paco McCauley´s sense of humor has been developing since age 7, when he began to perform Steve Martin´s "King Tut" in front of live audiences - in his living room. Paco has a personal, often self-deprecating tone, that also dissects the absurd around us. He has appeared at The Comedy Store, Flappers, and all around Los Angeles, New York, and Northern California. Paco currently lives in West Hollywood, CA- just off the Sunset Strip. BOOK
Phil tries to bring originality to his routine: armed with a tenor banjo, misleading impressions, and a nervous wreck for a stage persona. A UIC theatre graduate, Phil also is an actor/improviser who can be spotted at all over Chicago doing sketch or improv. Phil has performed for church events, art festivals, and he even brought along the banjo on a backpacking excursion last summer that lasted three months. Phil is currently touring the Midwest performing at the best comedy clubs. His crowning achievement was performing on Las Ramblas, Barcelona; naked. Phil was promptly escorted by the police for not having a permit. (FYI public nudity legal in Catalunya.) Lastly, Phil does a series of music videos under the alter ego Pierre, a French pop star. Using skills learned from Garageband and French 101, Pierre´s hits include Le Numero and Menage a Trois (avec moi). WEBSITE | | BOOK
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
