Dwight Slade isn't just a comedian, he's also the voice of the little man, sticking it to 'the man' and scoring a little payback for all of life's daily humiliations. Slade began his comedy crusade in Portland, working with the legendary Bill Hicks, but has since made a name for himself headlining comedy clubs, hosting his own radio show and releasing a number of comedy albums, including his new double DVD, Right & Raunch. Dwight was the winner of the Boston Comedy Festival and is currently appearing in the movie “Rid Of Me” available for streaming on Netflix. Follow Dwight on twitter and facebook.
Though he thought he had it all as a pizza deliveryman, Gabriel Rutledge didn’t know what true success was until he jumped into stand-up comedy. After winning the Seattle International Comedy Competition in 2004, Gabriel has gone on to become a well-respected headlining act that manages to connect with audiences with a wit that’s honest and self-deprecating. Now he's got a wife, a son, and his very own self-titled comedy CD.
