Though Ralph Harris has found success in both television and film, he continues to be on of the best touring stand-up comedians. "A Tonight Show" veteran and finalist on "Last Comic Standing," Harris isn't your typical stand-up comedian because he does much more than tell jokes on stage, he acts them out. He has appeared on the shows "Seinfeld," "In Living Color," "Living Single" and "Parenthood" just to name a few. Ralph's natural chameleon-like ability has helped him land a few roles in hit films like Dreamgirls and Evan Almighty. He was also the host of the show "My Momma Throws Down" on TV One.

Born in LA and growing up in Oregon, Dax Jordan was always known for his good guy looks and surly disposition. This lead to his moniker, "Nice Guy Gone Horribly Wrong." Now doing stand-up comedy, he's discovered a way he can get people to laugh, not just at him, but with him too.
When you see Auggie Smith on stage, he may sounds like he's just manically ranting about whatever's pissed him off that day, but in actuality, every part of his act has been a meticulously crafted, well thought out and intelligently dissected into a rapid fire, seamlessly style of raving comedy. Smith has been spreading the "Word of Aug" for over a decade now, and audiences are flocking to his shows to hear more. Along with a very popular DVD and CD set, Auggie is veteran of the BOB&TOM Comedy All-Stars Tour, has been showcased at the Montreal Comedy Festival and has appeared in a number of radio and TV commercials.
