    Zainab Johnson -

    Zainab Johnson, a stand-up comedian and actress, is quickly being propelled as one of the most unique and engaging performers on stage and screen. Zainab’s comedy is based on her unique point-of-view, which was shaped growing up in Harlem as one of thirteen siblings in a Muslim family. After getting a degree in math and taking a job as a teacher, she quickly learned that she had a different calling. Zainab can most recently be seen in her breakout appearance on HBO’s All Def Comedy and has made appearances on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Arsenio, BET’s Comic View, MTV’s Acting Out, AXSTV’s Gotham Comedy Live! and just recently starred in a new web series titled Avant-Guardians premiering November 19th. She is a regular at the Improv Comedy Club in LA and the Comedy Cellar in NY. Zainab has performed in the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival as one of the 2014 New Faces of Comedy and returned numerous times since.

    Dom Irrera -

    When Dom Irrera takes the stage, he does not simply get on it, he owns it! Dom projects a singular charisma that firmly engages audiences from the opening moment and doesn't let go until the end of the performance, and beyond. Trying to analyze what makes a comedian special is typically a fool's errand, but we'll give it a go: With Dom, it seems to be a blend of regular-guy presence and relaxed, effortless deliveryand, of course, what he's delivering is top-notch material, laced with an array of colorful characters and voices. Beyond beautifully-crafted jokes and routines, Dom's also giving the audience one-man sketches and bursts of improv. The impact, whether you've seen him once or dozens of times, is that you feel like Dom is kind of a friend, someone you'd like to have a beer with-and, not uncommonly, that you've become part of the de facto Dom Irrera family. And this is one happy, fun family you look forward to seeing often. Indeed, people come out to see Dom whenever he's in town, sometimes amounting to countless times over several years, partly for all these reasons, partly because he always returns armed with heaping hunks of new material. Likewise, clubs, festival and other events are eager to bring Dom back over and over-for example, he's made more appearances at the prestigious Just For Laughs Festival than any other American comic. Ditto the Cat Laughs Festival in Kilkenny, Ireland. Whether we're talking about audiences, comedy club bookers or festival producers, everyone looks at Dom as family: they want him around, and they want to be around him. The family metaphor is apt - family is pivotal to the path that first led Dom to the comedy stage, and remains a core topic of any performance he's likely to deliver on that stage....
