Tony Deyo
Tony Deyo
Tony Deyo is a comedian known most notably for his sharp, quick material and near-perfect comedic timing almost certainly gained from his years as a professional symphony musician. New York City’s Village Voice calls him “one of the tightest joke writers in the business.”


In 2013, he made his late night television debut on CONAN. Within a year, he had added appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen.


He performed at the prestigious HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, was named one of the year's best by the New York Post, and can be heard regularly on SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
Megan Gailey
Megan Gailey
Megan Gailey grew up in Indianapolis, the perfect town to raise a delusional upper-middle class Midwestern socialite. With a love of flirting and vacationing, it was a natural fit to leave the monotonous exercise schedule for a life of stand-up.

Gailey was a part of the 2015 Just For Laughs "New Faces", a finalist in NYC’s Laughing Devil Fest, a featured performer at the Traverse City Winter Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Festival and Comedy Expo. Megan was recently featured in Chicago Magazine and Marie Claire Magazine for her comedic risk taking and amazing dresses. And she has finally performed alongside enough famous people that her older brothers no longer hate her.
