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.

Stu Kosh moved to the US from India when he was 9 years old. He learned that being funny was a whole lot easier than running away. He hopes you enjoy all of his stories, heartache, and his receding hair line. He used to have a unibrow, but he paid someone to rip it off his face. BOOK
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.
