ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
Backstage named Tom Shillue the top New York Comic, saying, "There isn't anything Shillue can't do." Critics say he is always on point, original, and one of the top comics in the country. The New York Times called Shillue "inspired and subversive" and The New York Post said he is "brilliant." Shillue's fan base spread across the country leading to multiple television appearances including: his own "Comedy Central Presents..." special, Conan O'Brien, NBC's Late Friday and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. If you missed him performing stand up, you are guaranteed to see him in one of the hundreds of commercials he's appeared in
Craig Baldo is a performer and writer. He was a finalist in the first season of Last Comic Standing and has appeared on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Late Friday, and Premium Blend. He has warmed up audiences for the Colbert Report, Daily Show and some VH1 show that you wouldn't remember. His writing has been featured in The Onion and Time Out NY. You can find him at www.craigbaldo.com.
Sean Crespo National Lampoon's Senior Editor (‘99-03), Sean also attended the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art where he received full training as a classical actor, including tights maintenance and conversing with skulls. Sean is the co-author of a Hollywood Reporter parody called by the New Yorker, tongue not entirely in cheek, “one of the finest Hollywood-trade-publication parodies ever published” and is the recipient of the 2005 Emerging Comics of New York Award for his ironically pro-abuse PSA's, I Am Drugs. He is currently working on a Drink At Work branded fake creationist science text book.
