Yamaneika Saunders has been captivating audiences with her dynamic stage presence for over a decade across the entire country. Born and raised in Maryland, Yamaneika has since tackled both the New York and LA comedy scenes by combining her high energy improv skills with a unique vulnerable perspective on life. This mix forces her to go beyond the typical humor one would expect to hear, and allows her to connect to audiences from any background. Yamaneika is one of the stars of Oxygen’s “Funny Girls” series, as well as a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing, cast member of Comedy Central’s Insecurity and was featured on AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live.
Born in a doublewide trailer in Kilgore, Texas; son of a used-car salesman and a beautiful and wild hippy child; grandson of Choctaw Native Americans: Dustin Chafin is both Cowboy and Indian.
Dustin set foot in the boxing ring at the young age of five. Full of fight and fury, he quickly won golden gloves. As a young man, Dustin’s path took a turn towards the spiritual, and led him to the mountains of Chile where he worked as a missionary for many years. After developing a love and deep appreciation for people and their experiences, Dustin followed his calling from the Chilean forests to the tall buildings and crazy streets of New York City. There he found his true passion, culminating his experience of peoples and their voices and the fight of the ring: stand-Up.
Since Chafin first grasped the microphone, he has been very busy. He has been featured in the New York Underground Comedy Festival, where he was honored by the Bill Hicks Tribute show at the Laugh Factory. Dustin has also been featured in the Chicago and Las Vegas comedy festivals where he won “Best of Fest.” He performs regularly at premiere New York City venues such as Caroline’s on Broadway, Comic Strip Live, Broadway Comedy Club and Standup NY. He is the creator of “Uncensored Comedy,” a critically acclaimed show that runs weekends in New York City and a nation wide tour. Chafin has toured with the USO to perform in Korea, Japan, Africa, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan. He has been a staff writer for the Sci-Fi channel, and contributing writer for The Chris Rock Show, Dennis Miller Live, Chappelle’s Show, and Blue Collar TV. Dustin is a regular on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio—he has been featured on Jim Breuer Unleashed, One Hour special Southern Discomfort on Raw Dog on Sirius, Court TV Radio, Blue Collar Radio and Howard Stern radio, Howard Demand and on National Lampoon TV on Demand. .

Jesse McKinnley of the New York Time’s notes, “Chafin gets laughs every time.” Rachel Bussel of the Village Voice says she “recommends a night with Dustin Chafin.”
Cringe Humor hails Dustin as, “not your run of the mill blue collar comic.” He fearlessly—and hilariously—tackles issues such as race, religion, stereotypes and politics. Chafin draws inspiration from Johnny Cash and Red Fox, Crazy Horse and Sam Kinison. Chafin is a little bit country and a little bit Rock ‘n Roll: red neck “rock star” and Choctaw Outlaw.
