Comics:

• Akeem Woods | @akeemwoods

Akeem Woods is the funny little brother you always “never” wanted. His comedy style will have you on the edge of your seat reeling from laughter. No topic is safe from discussion, whether it be the KKK or the hardships of growing up poor. Catch him in comedy clubs all over the country.


• Kyle Rehl | @rehltalk

Kyle Rehl is a comedian and actor who started his comedy career Georgia before moving out to LA in 2017. He’s performed at venues all over the country including The Comedy Store, Relapse Theatre, Hollywood Improv, and The Comedy Palace. Kyle is the host of the podcast Bombing Together and also produces 2 stand up showcases Vino Underground and Into the Void. 

• Monrok | @monrok_

Monrok is synonymous with one word and one word only: Monrok. She has appeared on shows like Last Comic Standing, Latino 101, and shot the pilot Naked but Funny for Fox. She won California's Funniest Female Contest in 2009 and performed in the 2010 CBS Diversity Sketch Comedy Showcase. She has also won the Laugh Factory's Fresh Faces competition.

Instead of taking the safe route and talking about everyday problems such as dating and relationships, Monrok's natural irritation for life brings a whole new brand of comedy to the stage. Her comedy may be dry, but it is nothing you have seen before, or will probably ever see again, because you can't copy the way someone thinks, and that's exactly what it is. It's not a character, a bit, or an act, it's just Monrok.

• Monarey Martinez | @monareym

Monarey is originally from Buffalo, NY. Moved to Los Angeles to fail at life where at least the sun shines year round. She performs sketch, improv, and standup locally in Los Angeles. Also, she really wants a dog.
