Kevin McCaffrey
Kevin McCaffrey
Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian/writer who can be seen weekly on truTV Presents: World's Dumbest and heard weekly as the host of College Stories with Kevin McCaffrey, a podcast where showbiz types share their craziest college stories. Kevin made his network TV standup debut on The Late Show with David Letterman in 2013. He's also been a talking head on Vh1's I Love the 2000s, History Channel's I Love the 1880s, and other, non-decade based programming. Kevin's writing credits include Vh1, National Lampoon, Fuse, and various celebrities who want something sort of funny to say at awards shows.
Brock Mahan
Brock Mahan
Brock Mahan is also an Emmy Award-winning writer/producer whose work has appeared on Comedy Central, Discovery, NatGeo, NPR, Vh1, and many other channels in the three-digit tier of your cable package. Additionally, he is the co-founder/publisher of Eel Fancy, a magazine for eels and eel enthusiasts. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and their three beautiful eels: Gaucho, Aja, and Pretzel Logic.
Josiah Madigan
Josiah Madigan
Josiah Madigan is an Emmy Award-winning writer/producer who's worked on a few different shows for NatGeo, MTV, ABC, etc. and writes regularly for NPR's Ask Me Another. He likes long walks and beaches, but not at the same time. I mean, where can you even walk to on a beach? You're trudging through sand, and eventually you just have to turn around and head back the way you came.
Drew Michael
Drew Michael
Drew Michael is a Chicago comedian who looks at life from a dark, cerebral point of view. His rumination on relationships, ex-girlfriends, bestiality, pedophilia, God, religion, Hitler, government, life and death has prompted TimeOut Chicago to call him, “Smart, funny and unabashedly crass.”

Drew is a founding member of the comedy collective, Comedians You Should Know. The OnionAV Club says, “The genuine quality of talent on display is unrivaled in Chicago.” The group released a self-titled album that debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy charts.

Drew released his first album Lovely in 2013. The album debuted #1 on the iTunes comedy charts, which is surprising considering it’s this really pretentious love-concept album that nobody understands. He followed that release with Funny To Death, on Comedy Central Records and recently released his first special for Comedy Central (The Half Hour), in the fall of 2016. Drew is also a writer for Saturday Night Live.

See Drew now, while you still can, before he is viciously murdered by an ex-girlfriend, an unruly audience member, or himself.
Katina Corrao
Katina Corrao
KATINA CORRAO is an actress, comedian, and writer living in NYC. She just finished a dream job writing questions for The Newlywed Game and warming up The Jenny McCarthy Show! You may have seen Katina on Comedy Central, OWN, HBO, College Humor, Barely Political (with the Key of Awesome), Late Night Republic, and on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live and Best Night Ever. She's been nominated for an ECNY for Best Female Comedian and has appeared in numerous web series including Jack In A Box (Winner of Best Web Series at the 2010 NYTF) and Kid Farm! on ComedyCentral.com. She has an award-winning series of her own called The Good Neighbor Minute, which explores Katina's desire to be the nosey neighbor in a sit-com. She has been featured in Time Out New York, Reader's Digest, Broadway World, and in New York Magazine's Vulture section. She loves seltzer water with lots of ice and is literally the only comedian in New York City (and probably Los Angeles) who is writing a sit-com pilot starring herself.
