Her career was further boosted by numerous appearances on "MTV's Half-Hour Comedy Hour," "Comic Strip Live" and "Caroline's Comedy Hour." For the last seventeen years, Caroline has continued to perform to sold-out audiences in top comedy clubs all over the country and in Canada.

Her feature credits include, "The Perfect Man," with Heather Locklear, a supporting role in "Man on the Moon," the story of the late comedian

Andrew Norelli
Andrew Norelli
Numerous late night appearances including "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," where he was booked by Jimmy himself who said "because of how few slots we have available you have to be an A++ comedian to get booked on my show, and Andrew is." Other TV appearances include Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham," and the nationally syndicated comedy round-table "Comics Unleashed," where he also worked as a monologue joke writer. Andrew's natural charisma and sharp material have charmed audiences at comedy festivals around the world. He won the first annual Las Vegas World Series of Comedy, which only takes place in the US, so the use of the phrase "World Series" is a bit murky. But if it's good enough for baseball, it's good enough for him. He also took second place at the Boston Comedy Festival, and his performance at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal was praised in Time Out New York. He's delighted audiences at Sydney's Comedy Store and Laugh Garage where The (Australia) Daily Telegraph remarked "his show features hair trigger laughs with a deadly aim, all the more so because while some comedians overestimate their own intelligence, Norelli never underestimates ours." Versatility has allowed him to perform in corporate settings too, for companies such as Google and Yahoo.
Check him out on the Letterman show:

Carmen Lynch
Carmen Lynch
Carmen Lynch is a half-Spaniard who fell into comedy by accident. She wasn't getting any acting roles because all the boys getting cast were shorter than her...and no one wanted to cast a tall female w/ a short male. "What's wrong w/ that" she asks "I see comedy all over that". Unfortunately she had to go for something she could do alone - stand up was the answer. Carmen Lynch also got to the finals of Last Comic Standing Season One, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Aspen Comedy Festival.

Moody McCarthy
Moody McCarthy
Moody McCarthy is a stand-up comedian who has performed on Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Last Comic Standing, and Star Search. He lives in New York City with his wife and step-dog.

Moody began his career in his hometown of Syracuse, NY, in the 1900s. Many who witnessed his early performances forecast stardom. Moody proved those people wrong.

After six years Moody moved to New York City, where those who heard his jokes predicted he’d be courted by A-list producers as a writer. That has not happened.

But after 20+ years honing his craft, Moody has steadily gained the respect of his peers and audiences everywhere. With unpredictable material, a disarming presence, and in-the-moment chops, here is a comic who thrives in any venue and will brighten any event.

Moody McCarthy: few people hate him!
