Victor Cruz
At the age of sixteen, Victor made his stand-up comedy debut at the famous Boston Comedy Club in the west village in New York City. From then on he continued doing comedy, making people laugh from all over. From colleges to clubs to corporate events. Victor has played in venues such as Carolines, The Laugh Factory, Comic Strip Live, Boston Comedy Club and many more around the country. Victor landed his first major TV appearance on HBO's The Sopranos. From there he went off to do numerous commercials, TV appearances on Law & Order, Conviction, The Black Donnelly's, SiTV's Latino Laugh Festival, and hosted LTV's late hilarious latino comedy variety show Llegamos! (means WE HAVE ARRIVED).

Myq Kaplan
The Comedians magazine calls him "a comedy machine, in the best possible way. The way that some machines vend soda or prevent other machines from killing future revolutionaries - that's how Myq Kaplan does comedy: relentlessly, methodically, unblinkingly." Myq just made his debut on "The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien," and his half-hour "Comedy Central Presents" special debuts on April 30, 2010 (part of a year in which Punchline Magazine says to watch out for Myq). He has also appeared on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham," at the New Faces show of the 2009 Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, was voted 2008's Best Local Comedian in the Boston Phoenix, and won the 2009 NY's Funniest Standup Competition.

Sue Funke

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.

More comedians to be added to the July 28th lineup soon...
