John Brickley is a Minnesota comic born and bred taking his Midwest sensibilities to Los Angeles. He's been featured on BuzzFeed and various podcasts. You can see him performing all around the southwest and opening for national headliners across the U.S.. Most importantly, John just wants you to know that he is just happy to be here.

In the 3rd grade her dream was to be on SNL, so there’s no better way to do that than start doing comedy in the back of pizza parlors and breweries in her 40’s. Dana bounced into comedy and in just a few short years went from open mics, to hosting, to headlining. With a background of teaching Childbirth and Sex Ed., no topic is off limits. Her quirky outlook and vivid imagination shapes her comedy style, and has been steadily gaining fans all over, even overseas!

Cammie Syprasert is ecstatic to reprise her role as "Eldest Asian daughter" in the terribly delightful show called Life. When she's not playing that role, you can find her crunching away at math equations through Excel. When she's not solving problems, Cammie can be seen greatly disappointing her parents by not becoming a doctor or lawyer. Catch her preforming throughout California and every Sunday at Barmageddon's Bomb Shelter Open Mic. Beware of her silly smile cause she does bite.
