Stephen Lynch recently starred in the Broadway musical The Wedding Singer, for which he received Tony, Drama League and Drama Desk nominations for his performance as Robbie Hart. A comedic singer-songwriter, Stephen has appeared on Comedy Central Presents, The Opie and Anthony radio show, and produced three bestselling albums, including his most recent The Craig Machine. He has performed at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, two Comedy Central Presents specials and Last Call with Carson Daly.
Mike Birbiglia’s 2007 CD of personal stories, entitled My Secret Public Journal, was hailed by Time Out New York as “comedy album of the year.” Punchline Magazine called it “the best comedy album of this generation.” Such accolades led to star appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman and two highly rated half-hour specials on Comedy Central Presents. His new album, entitled What I Should Have Said Was Nothing, was released on April 8, and CBS is shooting his new pilot, My Secret Public Journal.
Julian McCullough is one of the fastest rising acts in NYC who has appeared at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, and on Comedy Central's "Live at Gotham."
