Monroe Martin
Monroe Martin
Rising comedy star Monroe Martin mines laughs from an unusual source - growing up in foster care and being moved from one dysfunctional home to another. With a very honest, open approach to storytelling and an engaging personality, Martin effortlessly turns his childhood of hard knock experiences into comedy gold.

He attended the Community College of Philadelphia, but dropped out to pursue comedy wholeheartedly, because he couldn't imagine doing anything else. Seven years later, Martin's creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit and earned him respect among his comic peers. He was given his own Breakout Artist Night by the famed Caroline's Comedy Club in New York City, where he got to book and headline his own show in 2013.

Martin currently performs all over the country. He has appeared on "The Artie Lange Show" on DirecTV and will be seen on the second season of "Adam Devine's House Party" on Comedy Central as well as the third season of "Gotham Live" on AXS TV. He also wrote for the MTV2 series "Charlamagne and Friends."
Mike Lebovitz
Mike is a member of the popular Chicago-based collective, Comedians You Should Know. He and his good buddy Junior Stopka also co-curate Señorita Weiner's Top Secret Humor Experiment and Ice Cream Social Club, Chicago's longest-running clandestine, nomadic comedy showcase and the original members-only ice cream social. A burgeoning international star, Mike has offended nostrils in Montreal as a "New Face" of the 2013 Just For Laughs, and in Switzerland where he won the international competition at the 2013 The Montreux Comedy Fest. Mike returned to Montreux in 2014 as the "Godfather" of the competition.
J.P. McDade
J.P. McDade started doing stand up comedy in New York City in the Fall of 2012. He began by hitting open mics and grinding through unpaid gigs in bars, but these eventually opened the door to slightly better unpaid gigs in bars. Night after night J.P. has performed at various comedy clubs, bars, and small theaters around New York and on the road and built a reputation as a clever joke writer. In 2015 he began writing for the web series Sports Balls on korkedbats.com, demonstrating his knack for topical joke writing. In addition to writing for this web series, he has appeared onscreen in several others. McDade has written for several comedians in "roast battle" style shows and competed on the RoastMasters show at The Stand Comedy Club in what club management called "perhaps the greatest battle in RoastMasters history."

Although J.P. has done his share of monologue and roast joke writing, his stand up act is more than a collection of one-liners. J.P. is a capable mimic who weaves characters and impressions into his set to keep the audience guessing and, more importantly, laughing. In New York, J.P. has gotten laughs clubs such as Caroline's, Gotham, The Creek & The Cave, The Stand and countless independent shows, such as his free monthly show at Lucky Jack's called Suckerpunch. McDade has also appeared at various venues in Connecticut, Long Island, Boston and North Carolina and plans to reach many more audiences around the country in 2016.
Emily Galati
Not your typical female comedian, Emily Galati does not dwell on the differences between men and women or any of the other cliche topics you have come to expect from female comics. Instead, she offers up intelligent and hilarious material, with impeccable timing and a charm rarely seen on the comedy stage. In 2013, Emily was chosen to represent Chicago in the "Best of the Midwest" Competition at Gilda's LaughFest. She has also been a semi-finalist in NBC's Stand Up for Diversity and finalist in the Bob and Tom Comedy Contest.

Emily performs regularly at the legendary Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago and has traveled all over the country to work with national acts such as Jeffery Ross, Gilbert Gottfried, Dwayne Perkins, Jimmy Dore, Jeff Richards, Kyle Kinane, and Matt Braunger. You can also catch her on your television set performing on shows like "The Comedy Thrift Store", "Funny Sundaes" and Comcast OnDemand's Laugh Out Loud.

Emily was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona where she enjoyed sunny days and swimming in December. She currently resides in Chicago, Illinois and misses her pool.
