Well known to fans as a member of the famed sketch comedy troupe "The Kids in the Hall," Scott Thompson is anything but your average comedic talent. After being discovered by SNL's Lorne Michaels in the late eighties," The Kids in the Hall" television series ran from 1988 to 1995 on CBC in Canada, and on HBO and CBS in the United States. After "The Kids" left television in 1995, Scott and the boys went on to write and star in their own feature film "Brain Candy," which is a cult favorite today.Thompson also appeared as a regular for three years on the revolutionary comedy series "The Larry Sanders Show" as 'Brian,' Hank Kingsley's assistant. In addition, he played a recurring role as 'Elliot' the dog baker on NBC's "Providence" and then in 2001 produced and co-wrote the Showtime documentary "Uncle Saddam." During this time he made numerous guest appearances on other shows such as "Politically Incorrect" and "Late Night w/ Conan O'Brien."In 2004, he hosted the Genie Awards in Canada and then went undercover as former war correspondent, 'Danny Husk' on "The Husk Report" on Fashion TV. In 2005, he hosted the landmark reality series "My Fabulous Gay Wedding" for Global Canada and Logo in the US. He took on the host's role once more the following year with the CBC series "Pop Up Royals" as 'Queen Elizabeth' and starred in the popular television movie "Prom Queen."Thompson along with fellow writer Paul Bellini is the author of "Buddy Babylon: The Autobiography of Buddy Cole'" an outrageous memoir of one of Thompson's most famous characters, Buddy Cole. He has appeared in such feature films as ''Ron Ronnie Run," "The Pacifier'" and "Mickey Blue Eyes." In 2008, "The Kids" took off on the road once again with a brand new show consisting entirely of new material. The venture was so successful and creatively rewarding that the quintet decided to create a new television show which became an eight-part mini-series entitled "Death Comes to Town," which aired earlier this year on CBC in Canada and on IFC in the United States.Lately, Scott has been touring as a stand-up comic and appearing in such series as "Reno 911," "Tim and Eric Awesome Show" and "Carpoolers."

His newest short "The Immigrant" won 'Best of the Fest' at the 2012 Los Angeles Shorts Film Festival. Scott also wrote the graphic novel "The Hollow Planet," based on Thompson's original screenplay about his mustachioed alter ego, 'Danny Husk,' which was published on December 1st from IDW Press and Frozen Beach Publishing.

Chandler has been taking audiences on a ride for the past few years. He'll start with a rant of his day then transform it into a intergalactic joke of being on another planet moon-walking with aliens. His sets are something to witness no two are the same and he is not afraid to dive in to social issues. He brings an energy to the stage that is hard to match and will have the crowd in a daze. Be sure to catch him while you can, and no this isn't The Chandler from Friends.

Logan Heftel burst into the Los Angeles music scene and is proving himself to be an artist with a refreshing sound that everyone can fall in love with.
Heftel's debut album, "If It Does" (2005), was a highly-praised mix of inventive folk-pop and musing ballads. Recorded at both Black Coffee Recording (Spokane, WA) and in his home studio, "If It Does" was called "...one of the best independent releases that I have heard," by David Rachac of howwastheshow.com.
Heftel has been working non-stop writing and performing. His new album, "One Day E.P." captures a sincere moment in a sarcastic world. It shares Heftel's humor and sentiment while exhibiting his "...gift for writing lyrics that probe the soul," (Jack McNally, co-founder of McNally Smith College of Music). The E.P. was produced by pianist Louis Durra, who accompanies Heftel on the tracks.
Kira Soltanovich developed much of her Amazon Special "You Did This To Me" at UnCabaret while she was hormone crazed and pregnant. She also appears in our Amazon series.
Kira has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Set List, 3rd Rock From The Sun, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She's a recurring stand-up comic on the E! Network, VH1's All Access, and Love Lounge and was a series regular for four seasons on the Oxygen and Nationally syndicated show, Girls Behaving Badly.
Kira headlines in comedy clubs and colleges throughout the country, and has toured the world entertaining the troops in USO shows.
Kira has been a winner, finalist and semi-finalist in a myriad of comedy competitions and festivals, including Comedy Central's Laugh Riots, California's Funniest Female, Seattle International Comedy Festival, and the Boston Comedy Festival. Kira will perform at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in the summer of 2005.
Based on her writing and acting, she was selected to be a part of the ABC Comedy Development Showcase where she was named "Hottest new writer". She has shot several pilots this year, including a Pilot Presentation for Comedy Central. You might also hear Kira as the voice of "Carla", a teenage know-it-all, on the animated series, Iggy Cool.
She grew up in San Francisco during a time when there were bad neighborhoods, cheap coffee and it wasn't ironic to ride the cable cars.
She began her comedy career back in 1998 right after asking her Russian immigrant parents if they were copacetic with her desires to become a stand up comedian. After her mother and father confessed "It's not like you're smart enough to be a doctor" Kira took that as their blessing to pursue her dreams and she's never looked back.
