Dave Merheje
Dave Merheje
Dave Merheje is considered to be one of the most original stand-up acts on the comedy scene today. His multiple award-winning acts have gained a loyal following across in North America with his “no fear” approach on stage and a comedy style best described as aggressive in-your-face funny. Tapping into his middle-eastern roots and an arithmetic interpretation of urbanized life, Dave’s perspective on the world is one that cannot be duplicated. Dave had his comedy special air in Australia on ABC2, and has made appearances on Comedy Network’s Match Game, Superchannel’s Too Much Information, and was a regular contributor on MTV Live. He won the Just For Laugh's 2011 Homegrown Comic Competition and NOW Magazine's 2011 Best of Toronto Award for Best Male Stand-up. In 2012 he was a part of the NBC Standup for Diversity tour, and a Canadian Comedy Award-nominee for Best Stand-up. In 2013 he was nominated for another Canadian Comedy Award, this time for best taped live performance, and was a finalist at the Seattle Comedy Competition. Dave has made multiple appearances at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, JFL42 in Toronto, and the Halifax Comedy Festival. Dave tours clubs and theatres regularly, and most recently shot his own comedy special which will be released in 2017.

Ian Lara
Ian Lara
Ian Lara is really just a regular guy from Queens, New York. He started comedy right after college because he didn't feel like going to law school and he's loved every second of it. Usually you can catch him performing every night in some of the best and worst shows in New York City, or he's on the road at a club or college near you. Ian Lara might become a household name but really all he wants is to get big enough where he can wear those big hats Pharrell wears to awards shows. Peace!

Recently the comedian and veteran went viral with his "Grenade Iraq Story" which propelled his new album "I'm Funnier Than This" to #1 on iTunes for over a week.
