Jamie Lee: Upon graduating from The University of Texas at Austin in 2005, Lee moved to New York City to fill the stand-up publicist position at Comedy Central. Today she is one of NYC’s fastest emerging comedians. In addition to performing at top venues such as Comix NY, Caroline’s On Broadway and The Laugh Lounge, Lee has opened/featured on road shows for headliners Zach Galifianakis and Jeffrey Ross. She has performed at festivals such as the Out of Bounds Festival in Austin, TX, The New Orleans Comedy Festival and The New York Underground Comedy Festival. This year, Lee was one of ten chosen from a 200+ applicant pool to perform in the Underground Festival’s Emerging Comics Contest, where she placed First Runner-Up. Based on her stand-out performance at “See You Next Tuesday” at UCB LA, alongside performers Judd Apatow and Jonah Hill, Lee was passed for booker Scott Auckerman’s prestigious “Comedy Death Ray” showcase. Lee appeared on the national cable show F’NMTV. She was a featured guest on VH1’s “Best Night Ever” video podcast and has had multiple appearances on Keith and the Girl, the #1 comedy podcast on iTunes. She regularly acts in web shorts for Collegehumor.com. Lee writes jokes for the “Fashion Slip-Ups” page of Life & Style Magazine. Lastly, Lee produces a monthly show in NYC to benefit B.A.R.C. Animal Shelter of Brooklyn.
Jordan Carlos: Jordan Carlos is a favorite fixture of the New York alt comedy scene, performing at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, The People’s Improv Theater, PSNBC, and CBS/NYC where he recently brought his improv/stand up or “stimprov” show, “Flying Blind” to a sold out crowd. Jordan is also one of the preppiest black guys you’ll ever meet and usually people’s sole black friend (which is fine). It’s something that definitely comes across in his comedy (“…a little more Cosby, a little less Def Jam”). TV appearances include a recurring role on “The Colbert Report” where he appears as “Alan,” Steven’s (wait for it) long-suffering black friend. He’s also made appearances on Spike TV, VH-1, FOX, and numerous national commercials for Pepsi, AOL, Microsoft, and Disney. Jordan was nominated “Best Male Comic” by the Emerging Comics of New York Awards and was a finalist in NBC’s “Stand Up for Diversity” showcase. He’s been a contributing writer for both Bar Mitzvah Disco (Crown) and “Esquire” Magazine. He also maintains a popular blog–“The Comedy Cubby: Nice & Preppy.” A graduate of Brown University, Jordan wrote for the campus humor magazine, The Brown Jug and is a proud alumni of the popular campus improv troupe “Improvidence,” which boasts Michael Showalter and Traci Ellis Ross among its former members.
