Aparna Nancherla is an accomplished writer, actress and stand-up comedian dishing dry, observational humor sprinkled with absurdist wit and whimsy. Aparna kicked in the door of the D.C. comedy scene in 2006, became a finalist in the DC Improv Showcase and took her act national in 2007 as a NBC Standup for Diversity Finalist. You’ll recognize Aparna from Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, @midnight, Conan, Time Magazine‘s 140 Top Tweeters of 2014, and must-know comedy lists published by a hefty smattering of national and international outlets.“Aparna saw a pile of dog poop with a used condom on top and wondered, ‘Too much information or not enough?’” – TeamCoco.com

Ashley Barnhill delivers sarcastic atonement for the human condition in doses of dark, punchy one-liners. Her depression might cure yours. Ashley got started writing jokes on Twitter and as a contributor to Witstream.com. She recently headlined the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival and has performed at both the Moontower and New York Comedy Festivals. Ashley writes and and acts in her own sketch videos, which sometimes wind up on the front pages of websites like Funny or Die and the Huffington Post. She plays lead in the upcoming independent feature film, Here There Now Year Ago, and recently appeared in The Dividing Line. HuffPo named Ashley one of “18 Funny Women You Should be Following on Twitter,” and the Austin Chronicle celebrates her signature caustic style by pointing to her ability to skew morbid from the slow death of a relationship to “actual, real, slow death.”
Currently based in New York and Los Angeles, Sean Patton originally hails from New Orleans, where he cut his teeth doing stand-up in the Crescent city. Patton has since performed at some of the top venues around, including Caroline's, The Comedy Cellar, Gotham and The Improv, as well as UCBNY and UCBLA.
Patton’s basic cable debut came on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham in 2009, followed by his network television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2010 and a recent appearance on Conan in 2011. He has also hit the comedy festival circuit, with appearances at The Melbourne International Festival (2011) and the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival (2008, 2010), in addition to many other clubs around the U.S. and Canada.
Ian Douglas Terry is a stand up comedian from Omaha, Nebraska. He started doing comedy when he got too fat to be in pop-punk bands. He is really in to pro wrestling and gin.
