Jerry Rocha is one of the hottest comics on the scene, constantly on tour and leaving a trail of busted guts and broken hearts in his wake. Well not really, but he has been a featured performer on SiTV, The Latino Laugh Festival, was the subject of a half-hour documentary on the Travel Channel, and was a Semi-Finalist on Season 7 of Last Comic Standing on NBC. He has worked at comedy clubs all over the country, and is now living in L.A., if that doesn´t work out, he´ll move back in with his Mom in Texas. His routine is all over the map, and he is able to make light of any subject, making people laugh at things they normally wouldn´t, and also making them laugh at the easiest target: himself.

Comedian Daniel Baxter FLAPPERS COMEDY CLUB, OPENED FOR DANA CARVEY, OPENED FOR DANA EAGLE
I was born in a small town Oklahoma... I've lived a pretty interesting life so far... So, my comedy is rooted in the contrasts between the conservative culture back home and the liberal climate of California.. BOOK
Seth Clark started college to become a minister and found that most religion was more laughable than believable. He was born in the Carolinas but moved to SoCal to pursue graduate school. His combined experiences of fundamentalist Christianity, American Buddhism, and the general mayhem of life have produced an individual that is a full time scholar, comedian, and craft beer aficionado. When´s he not busy studying ancient texts, telling jokes, or delivering lectures, one can find him at local breweries. Seth´s love of the stage comes from the charisma he was exposed to in the church and the theatrical training that he received in high school and college. In college, he majored in Religious Studies and continues this work in History of Religions at a graduate level here in Claremont. He believes that life is more credulous than credible and there lays the humor seen in everyday life. WEBSITE | | BOOK
