Jamie Kaler decided early on that he was going to take as much out of life as he possible could. After growing up as the youngest of a large family in a small town in New Hampshire,Kaler attended school at Boston University, fulfilled his obligation to Uncle Sam on Navy destroyers stationed in Hong Kong, Bangkok and the Persian Golf, and the returned to the US where he became a bartender, actor and stand-up comedian. Not too shabby. These days you can find him on stages across the country and on the TBS sitcom My Boys alongside Jim Gaffigan.
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
For longer than we can remember comedian Tim Bedore has been calling in or stopping by to deliver an editorial in which he talks about whatever happens to be on his mind. These musings can range from his relationship with his daughter, to hot topics in the news, and even updates on how the animal kingdom is waging war on mankind. From the Animal Conspiracy to his daughter Claire, Tim takes us inside his mind, and with the help of a few sound effects, puts together one of our favorite features. Follow Tim on Facebook.
