Dan Telfer is an actor, a playwright and a self professed nerd, but first and foremost he is a stand-up comedian. This Illinois native is a regular on the Chicago comedy club scene, and once finished 3rd in the Funniest Person in Chicago contest. And though he keeps busy with his job and as a husband and father, he still finds time to blog, which you can read in full on his website. Follow Dan on twitter and facebook.

Dr. Will Miller
Long time friend of the show, Dr. Will Miller, is an ordained minister, former standup comedian, keynote speaker, teacher and full-time therapist at a major University, yet somehow he still finds time to write books including Why We Watch and Refrigerator Rights (the latter of which has just recently been re-released with an all new chapter and updated research.) He's also the formorst expert on how classic television secretly revals the inner stuggles in all of us. Meaning, while you watch shows like "Mr. Ed" and "Bewitched" to get a few laughs, he's looking to find out what's going on in that messed up brain of yours. Follow Dr. Will on twitter.
Scott Dunn is a stand-up comedian, a novelist, a father of two, and a husband of one. He's also a full-time history buff, and famous for his roasts of famous historical figures and events. He also occasionally calls in with History Lessons and Quizes, which means if you see his name on the guest board, you'd better start studying. In his spare time (when he's got any) he writes jokes for a number of shows including "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader." And that's a little bit about Scott Dunn.
