If someone were to tell you they were performing as a comedy club MC six times a week and having to host karaoke after each show in the dead of winter 60 miles from the Canadian border while living in a 6x8 motel room next to a French fry factory, you might think they had it all. Chad Daniels on the other hand felt he needed something more in his life. Good thing he did too, because since then he's performed as a finalist in Comedy Central’s "Laugh Riots" competition, appeared on "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn," and Comedy Central Presents and released two comedy albums including his newest one, Busy Being Awesome. Follow Chad on facebook and twitter.
When you turn on a sporting event on NBC, chances are you're going to see Bob Costas. He's been the face and voice of the NBC Sports since joining the team in 1980. In that time, he's covered numerous Super Bowl, World Series and NBA Finals broadcasts as well as eight Olympic Games. In 2001, Costas also became a member of HBO sports, joining the "Inside the NFL" cast as well as hosting his own shows "On the Record" and "Costas Now." Costas is an Emmy Award winner, best-selling author and can be found every Sunday night hosting NBC's "Football Night in America." Costas will be covering Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, IN.
After appearing in the summer blockbuster film "Be Cool" with John Travolta as well as a string of TV appearances including Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," BET's "Comic View," and "The Tonight Show," Darren Carter has become a hot commodity. Darren and his trademark red can are also be seen on "Chelsea Lately" and were named a MySpace Comedy 'comic to watch.' His unique blend of comedy, sketch, and impersonations have garnered industry attention in comedy, acting and music. After being spotted by hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg for his dead on impression of the rapper, he has performed multiple times at Snoop's annual family reunion. Follow Darren on twitter and facebook.
All That Chas
He’s been a clown for Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey Circus and an actor off-Broadway, but for right now, Chas Elstner is a standup comedian. Chas is a 15-year veteran who has the ability to approach edginess without being offensive. It doesn’t matter if he’s discussing politics or the daily absurdities of life, audiences all over have found Elstner energetic, honest and thought provoking. We think we heard the adjective ‘funny’ tossed around too.
FACTOID - Chas can perform a rendition of Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" using only his mouth. Of course, this typically results in a phone call from Mr. Sound FX-II.
