Conan and Comedy Central veteran Ahmed Bharoocha is half Irish Catholic, half Pakistani-Indian-Burmese-Muslim, and wholly a master of punctuating striking social commentary with high-energy theatrics. During high school his family
relocated from Santa Barbara to Rhode Island, where Bharoocha made the leap from Stitches Comedy Club dishwasher to open micer. While attending the University of Rhode Island he frequented Boston’s Comedy Studio, becoming a Comic in Residence in the process. In 2010 Bharoocha won the Magner’s International Comedy Festival and soon moved to Los Angeles (specifically his sister’s dining-room floor). There he began producing weekly web shorts with Ryan O’Flanagan and Jack Robichaud for their Dead Kevin YouTube channel; the viral sketch trio has since been featured on Tosh.0 , Funny or Die and named one of L.A. Weekly’s 2013 Comedy Acts to Watch. As a solo stand-up, Bharoocha’s festival performances include Just for Laughs Montreal, the Moontower Comedy Festival, Riot L.A., the Great American Comedy Festival and Scotland’s Glasgow International Comedy Festival. Most recently he appeared on Adam DeVine’s House Party, Viceland’s Flophouse and was cast as a series regular on this fall’s Adult Swim series Dream Corp.

Kevin Tienken is a Los Angeles based stand up comedian. Born in Fresno CA, married with two kids, Kevin started out entertaining at churches in the central valley where he turned every day announcements into short comedy routines. After years of appearing in faith based comedy sketches, Kevin began scratching the itch of stand upcomedy. While developing a personal point of view as a comic, Kevin left the church and began spending most of his time with degenerate comedians. His unique stage presents mixes an encouraging southern preacher with an over excited jr. high kid who just found a video camera for the first time. You can hear this mix every week on his podcast “Rip’n & Skip’n with Evan & Kevin”, a character and improv based, sketch and interview production. Kevin might be the only stand up comic who’s act seems dedicated to positivity. Watch Kevin perform at the world famous Comedy Store, the Hollywood Improv and several other venues throughout Los Angeles. You’re sure to have a great time.

Mark Smalls is a working comic out of San Fransisco. A regular at the San Fransisco Punchline, Cobbs Comedy Club and Rooster T Feathers in San Jose. A 2016 SF INTL Comedy Competition competitor and a Santa Cruz Comedy Festival
headliner.

Torio Van Grol performs regularly at two of San Francisco’s premier comedy showcases. You can see him every Wednesday at The Tabernacle, and every Thursday at The Mission Position. In 2016, he was listed as one of the Bay Area’s best stand-up comedians by SFist. He won the title, “Best Joke of 2015” by the award-winning SF blog Courting Comedy. Torio has performed at SF Sketchfest for the past two years, as well as many other comedy festivals including the 10,000 Laughs Festival, Santa Cruz Fringe Festival and more.
