Tommy Johnagin began his stand-up career at the ripe young age of 18, a decision his parents were less than thrilled with. But how could they argue this life choice when their son obviously possessed a gift for joke telling, and more importantly, promised to pay them back for the six semesters of college he "wasted." While on stage (and hopefully on the air) Tommy doesn’t curse, but what he does do is find the humor in his life and the people he meets, (especially in his practical joke loving father). Tommy has been featured on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and and was a finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing." Follow Tommy on twitter. Tommy's new album, "Stand Up Comedy 2" is available now!
Nothing in life makes the Chickster happier than his beloved Washington Redskins, which is why we've not been able to get him out of the studio since he found out his hero, former 'Skins QB Joe Theismann would be joining us. It's no surprise Chick has a huge man-crush on Theismann, he's only one of the all time greats in franchise history. He lead the team to two Super Bowls, winning one, was named to the Pro-Bowl twice, NFL MVP once and owns most of the Redskins passing records. And though we're sure Joe will be happy to talk about football, he's also here to remind guys of the importance of having their prostate checked. Hey, what do you know, there's something else he and Chick have in common.
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.
