Matt Koff
Matt Koff
Matt is currently staffed as a writer on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.

In 2010, Matt won Time Out New York's Joke of the Year contest and his web series with colleague Dan McCoy, 9am Meeting, won Best Animated Pilot at the New York Television Festival. In 2012, Matt wrote and starred in The Matt Koff Show, a live sketch show directed by UCB's Will Hines.

Matt currently lives in Brooklyn, NY without a wife, kids, or even so much as a pet. Pretty sad stuff.
Blair Socci

BLAIR SOCCI is an NYC-based comedian from Southern California. She recently starred in the MTV series, LADYLIKE, this past summer. Blair can also be seen on a new comedy series for FUSE TV called UPROARIOUS. This year she also served as creative consultant for Guy Code vs. Girl Code on MTV and also appeared on the show. When she isn’t watching Vanderpump Rules, you can find Blair performing nightly at some of the best clubs and alternative shows in town. Blair has also been lucky to perform alongside some of her favorite comics at the New York Comedy Festival, Brooklyn Comedy Festival, Women in Comedy Festival, Limestone Comedy Festival, Laughing Skull Festival, CROM Comedy Festival, Red Clay Comedy Festival, and Chicago Comedy Exposition. Once a month, she co-hosts a popular show, NACHO BITCHES, at New York Comedy Club that she co-founded with Corinne Fisher of Guys We F*cked fame. Blair holds an MFA in creative writing from The New School and a Bachelors of English from UCLA – which as it turns outs out, she only got to list in this bio as you do not need any degrees to be a comedian.
Mike Brown
Mike Brown
Mike Brown is a comedian and writer from Harlem, New York.He’s performed at Caroline’s Comedy Club, Stand Up NY, and other comedy clubs and college throughout the US. Mike Brown’s first time doing stand up was in the third grade for a talent show. He didn’t win. Those judges were idiots. He has appeared on Oprah Winfrey Network doing stand-up comedy. That’s the Oprah Winfrey Network, not to be confused with the Oprah Winfrey Show … unless the show sounds better and you can keep a secret. He recently performed stand-up comedy at San Francisco SketchFest and was named one of RooftopComedy.com’s Comics to Watch 2012. His work can be heard on SIRIUS XM Radio, Yahoo and many other media outlets.
