For the past decade, comedian Bill Burr has been working hard (performing over 300 shows a year) to establish himself as one of the finest standup comics in the business. It doesn’t matter if he’s performing on "Late Night With Conan O’Brien" or "Showtime at the Apollo;" Bill Burr finds a way to connect with any audience. In his early days of comedy, he did this by making fun of his lunatic father, but these days he covers everything from current events to, well, his lunatic father. Burr has been featured on "The Late Show with David Letterman," starred in two films, and has even popped up on "Breaking Bad." Follow Bill on twitter.
Laws of Laughter
As a lawyer by day and a stand-up comedian by night, Al Lubel was doing justice to neither. He knew he was going to have to give up one of his two professions when people began calling comedy clubs to get legal advice. Naturally he chose comedy. And the timing couldn’t have been better because before long he had won the Star Search competition and was one of the final comedians to appear on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Al has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Dr. Katz HBO and Showtime.
If ever one wanted to prove that comedy is genetic, Dennis Regan may be the perfect example. Like his brother Brian, Dennis is a successful stand-up comedian. He's been featured on both "The Late Show" and "The Tonight Show", and is currently on tour with his brother. Along with performing comedy, Dennis also spent time as a writer for the sitcom "The King of Queens." Follow Dennis on twitter. You can also listen to his podcast Tee 2 Grin starring Dennis, Jimmy Shubert and Jackie Flynn.
