Jeff is married and has one son. He makes his home in a small town in Ohio.
Michael Palascak is a comedian, writer and actor based in LA. He’s done stand-up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Letterman, CONAN, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central’s HALF HOUR, and most recently was a top 5 Finalist on LAST COMIC STANDING. Roseanne Barr said of Michael, “This is a guy who could star in a sitcom” and Norm Macdonald said Michael reminds him, “…of a guy that’s just as funny offstage as on, which is like magic.”
Collin brings a fast paced and highly engaging mix of clever stand-up and gut busting physical comedy that appeals to people from Earth. He draws on life experiences, current events, and incisive personal observations to create a comedy ride that is hilarious, and memorable. This is the guy you’ve been waiting for. Collin can be heard regularly on Satellite Radio, has appeared on Comedy Central, Bob and Tom Show, and currently writes for Showtime.
Andrew Sleighter started in comedy looking for an outlet for his vulgar arguments for decency. Since then Andrew’s laid-back style and clever writing has won him appreciation from fans and respect from his peers.
Andrew is very excited to be a regular cast member on the hit MTV series “Money From Strangers.”
He performs at colleges and comedy clubs across the country, such as Laughs in Seattle, Zanies in Chicago and The Comedy Studio in Boston. He has performed at the Bumbershoot Music and Arts Festival in Seattle, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Johnny Carson Great American Comedy Festival, and was a finalist in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta.
Andrew also wrote and blogged for Sports Show with Norm Macdonald on Comedy Central. He’s the author and creator of the well-read sports humor blog, Locker Room Cancer, and the co-host of the podcast by the same name.
Andrew’s comedy has the ability to reach wide ranges of audiences and works in a diversity of rooms. Reliable and consistent, he rarely ends a show by lighting the stage on fire out of rage. Most importantly, he’s constantly fascinated by, and eager to keep learning about stand-up.
Dusty Slay is a stand-up comedian with a baritone voice so smooth it’s like champagne in your ears. Dusty walks you through a childhood in the trailer park, his adult years in the workforce and as an occasional blackout drunk. He thinks skunks smell like weed and leaves the serious topics like race, religion and politics up to someone who, unlike him, hasn’t drank gas out of a water hose.
Slay has appeared on several network shows including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”, the popular program “Laughs on FOX,” and he was a featured comedian on “TMZ”. Dusty’s comedy is regularly showcased on many nationally syndicated radio programs including Sirius XM, Pandora Radio and “The Bob and Tom Radio Show.” He’s also been invited to numerous comedy festivals across America including: The Bridgetown Comedy Festival 2017, The Turnbuckle Comedy Festival 2017, The Laughing Skull Festival 2015-16, The Charleston Comedy Festival, and The Cape Fear Comedy Festival. Dusty won both the “Fight Night Competition” and the “Almost Famous Competition” at the Charlotte Comedy Zone in 2014. During his years in Charleston, SC, Slay won The Charleston Comedy Festival Stand Up Competition two years in a row, and was voted “Best Local Comic” by the readers of the Charleston City Paper in 2013 and 2014.
Dusty was born in Alabama, his parents divorced when he was two, then there was a custody battle, his mom lost, so he had to go live with her. He split time between his dad who lived on a farm, and his mom who lived in a trailer park. When asked about his education, Slay says, “When I was kid, my dad asked me if I wanted to go to college or if I wanted a pool. Man, I love that pool.”
Joe DeVito’s more than 100 TV appearances include The Late Late Show on CBS, AXSTV’s Gotham Comedy Live, Live in Gotham, Comics Unleashed, and the semi-finals of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He was a regular panelist on FOX News Channel’s Red Eye, a regular on FOX Business Network’s Kennedy Show, and he could be heard on The Anthony Cumia Show on SirusXM. Joe’s first CD, First Date with Joe DeVito, was released on RoofTopComedy.
Whether taking on relationships, his Italian-American family, pop culture or current events, JOE DeVito’s dead-on timing, unexpected twists, and sheer flights of lunacy make him a favorite at the top clubs in New York City and across the USA. His performance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival was rated “9.5 out of 10” by The Montreal Gazette.
Joe’s TV credits include two performances on The Late Late Show, three appearances on Comics Unleashed, two appearances on Gotham Comedy Live AXS TV, Comedy Central, and a semi-finalist turn on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He was also a regular contributor on FOX News Channel’s Red Eye and a recurring guest on FOX Business Channel’s Kennedy, with other panel appearances including Chelsea Lately, CNN, Animal Planet, Discovery Channel, and truTV’s The Smoking Gun Presents.
As a writer, Joe has contributed to Maxim Magazine, MTV, and the award-winning film, Super Size Me.
