Brian Regan's blend of sophisticated writing and physical expression make him one of the most successful comedians in the business today. He has a deft ability to pinpoint the most specific situations and make them relatable to audiences that span generations. Regan has been featured on all the major late night talk shows as well as Showtime, Comedy Central and MTV. In fact, with his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show and in 2012 he made his 25th appearance, the most of any comedian on the CBS show. His first CD has sold over 150,000 copies, and his past two DVDs have been bestsellers. You can get his new CD, All By Myself, on his website. Brian is currently on a nationwide tour, and if he comes to your town, he's a definite must see. Follow Brian on twitter.

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.
