Louis Katz: Louis was born and raised in Los Angeles (not the Valley, not Orange County, but actually in Los Angeles). His comedy career began at the incredibly early age of 9 when as part of a school project he submitted several jokes to “The Tonight Show,” two of which were read on air by Johnny Carson. When Louis moved to Northern California to attend UC Berkeley, he continued to pursue comedy as a writer/performer with the Theater Rice sketch comedy troupe. After graduating, he began performing stand-up throughout the Bay Area and quickly made a name for himself. He is now a professional comedian who can be seen performing at clubs and colleges across the country. In 2005, Louis had a great year, appearing in both the Montreal Comedy Festival and Atlanta’s “Laffapalooza” Comedy Festival. He also made his television debut (not counting the time he went on “The Judge Joe Brown Show”) on “Last Call with Carson Daly.”
Kurt Metzger: Besides regularly performing in many a New York City comedy club, Kurt Metzger’s credits include performing on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” Showtime’s “White Boyz in the Hood” and as a regular on VH1’s “Best Week Ever.” Kurt has filmed a half-hour special for “Comedy Central Presents” and appeared on Comedy Central’s “Important Things with Demetri Martin,” IFC’s “Z-Rock” and will be a regular on the new Comedy Central program “Ugly Americans.” Previously, he was the stand out comedian at the Montreal Comedy Festival’s New Faces showcase. He has also written for “Chappelle’s Show” on Comedy Central and several other SpikeTV, VH1 and Comedy Central programs.
