ABOUT THE TALENT
Conan, Comedy Central, AXSTV
Sam Morril, one of the fastest rising comics in New York City, is also one of the best joke writers in the scene today. How do you know that's true? Because he is writing this bio, and he wouldn't lie about that to get extra work. Sam won March Madness 2010 at Comix, and was featured in a 4-page spread in the Daily News as "one of the four funniest in New York?" He then won the Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta, beating out over 600 (dreams were shattered!) applicants. In 2011, Sam was named a "Comic to Watch" by Comedy Central. His comedy can be heard on Sirius XM radio, and you can see him regularly at all the best clubs in New York City. Recently, he's been on "Gotham Comedy Live" on AXS TV, and the "The Artie Lange Show." Sam made a big impression at Montreal's "Just for Laughs" Comedy Festival, and was written up a stand out among the "New Faces." Sam has been seen talking sports (mostly about his beloved Knicks) on MSG's "The Bracket," and he recently made his Late Night Debut on "Conan" on TBS. You can see Sam regularly on "Red Eye" on Fox News, and he recently taped a stand-up set for Comedy Central on the second season of Adam Devine's House Party. Time Out New York says: "Morril's jokes arise from his humiliations sure, a lot of comedy does, but he's especially adept at it." Come see Sam before you catch swine flu or something. It's out there!

Montreal Just For Laughs
Alzo Slade is a Brooklyn based comic from the Dirty South who doesn't like to write about himself in third person but I will because it sounds weird otherwise. Alzo is a cool guy (that's me talking) who looks intimidating but smiles to make people feel like he's non-threatning. He has played several clubs/venues throughout the tri-state area, Los Angeles and Houston. He also performed at (really hustled his way into) the Montreal 'Just For Laughs' comedy festival.
AXSTV, Montreal Just For Laughs
Anthony is a NYC based comic. He was featured as one of the "New Faces" at the 2012 Montreal Just for Laughs Festival and in 2014 made his television debut on AXS TV's Gotham Comedy Live. He's also performed at the 2014 Boston Comedy Festival, 2014 Limestone Comedy Festival and 2013 Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
She-Devil Festival, Laughing Skull
Chrissie recently wrote, produced, directed and acted in SquirrelCode, a web series parody of MTV's hit show GirlCode.
