Russ Meneve
There's a new name on the New York comedy scene that has people talking -- and laughing! Russ Meneve is on the fast track to becoming one of comedy's next big breakout stars. The Hawthorne, New Jersey native has been performing comedy in and around New York City for the past eight years, where he has hones his skills to an edge as sharp as his material. Nowhere was this more evident than on NBC-TV's "The Tonight Show," where Russ recently made his debut to rave reviews from host Jay Leno and an appreciative studio audience that he had rolling in the aisles

Lynne Koplitz
Lynne is one of America's most sought after female comics - regularly headlining at major comedy clubs and colleges nationally. Lynne has had her own 1/2 hour comedy special Comedy Central Presents, and co-hosted the syndicated TV talk show Life & Style. She has also performed at HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival and Live at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Lynne was the host of the popular TV dating show Change of Heart and the cooking show How To Boil Water on The Food Network. Among her other many television appearances are CBS's Late Night with Craig Ferguson, NBC's Later and Shop and Style, Comedy Central's Premium Blend and Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and The Greatest Joke Ever Told for The History Channel.

Danny Naturman
Dan's charming, self-deprecating, sharp-tongued style has since made him a hit with comedy club audiences across the country. His joke telling and impeccable ability to work a crowd has a throwback quality of its own. With his quick-witted set-ups, Naturman speeds right into the hard-hitting punch lines he's know for- if ever there were a Groucho Marx of this century, Naturman would be the closest thing. Recorded at Acme Comedy Club in Minneapolis, Dan's CD, "Get Off My Property" was widely praised for its ability to twist usually humorless topics into amusing ideas that anyone can recognize. Punchline Magazine has called Dan's act a success because of its UNIVERSAL APPEAL.

Host Kenny Ortega
Kenny Ortega is a native of Spanish Harlem, A stand up comedian and although he has been a comedian for under 6 years he has grown up fast by working along side some of the best Latino comedians out there today. Kenny like any other kid always found himself getting into mischief, which now reflects his comedic style of story telling on stage. Kenny enjoys helping those starting out in the comedy field by organizing shows to make the transition on to the comedy club stage a lot easier. He worked in venues like "The Dave Chappelle show" the second season and Metro TV. Kenny takes great pleasure in putting a laugh into everyone's day.
