Host/MC Geoff Keith HBO, COMEDY CENTRAL , COMICS UNLEASHED
Geoff Keith began performing stand up comedy at the end of 2003. Since then he has been making a name for himself and audiences and industry have both been taking notice. After Keith's first time on stage he walked off and heard an audience member saying, "remember that kid's name." He spent his first two years traveling all over Southern California every night driving over 100 miles per night just to get stage time. He performed at AA meetings, restaurants, swap meets, nudist colonies, bars, clubs, etc. Whether there were two people or 200 people he would make the drive. Soon he began traveling to other states such as Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, and Nevada for gigs. The drives did not get any shorter going from state to state each day.

Peter L. Chen is a chubby comedy writer with a right leg that shakes whenever he is on a stage. He's definitely not well suited for standup comedy, but is a masochist and not that bright -- so he sometimes finds himself shaking on stage. You can follow him on twitter @lunchticketfilm BOOK
Comedian Greg Gateley BET'S COMIC VIEW, COMING TO THE STAGE, THE FUNNY SPOT
Greg Gateley is an entertainment industry veteran who has worked behind the scenes on BET´s Comic View, Coming to the Stage, The Funny Spot for TV-One, and Last Comic Standing. As a lifelong fan of standup comedy, Greg relished the opportunity to study the art form in a way few people could. He treated his experience on these shows like a graduate course and it inspired him to eventually try standup himself.
He made his first attempt at standup during a run-thru for Coming to the Stage, a comedy-themed game show. In front of Mark Curry, Kim Coles and Gary "G-Thang" Johnson, three professional headlining comedians, as well as his co-workers, Greg delivered his very first standup act and knocked it out of the park. He's been doing comedy ever since.
Greg has a regular spot on Tuesday nights at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood. BOOK
