A native of Cleveland, OH, Ryan Dalton discovered after graduating from college that the entertainment industry might be right for him because it was one of the few places where a basic lack of knowledge on any subject is not only necessary, but also embraced. He uses standup comedy as a way to poke fun at controversy and the “everyday personal injustices” that are dealt with by the common man. He also tries to defend the common woman whenever possible. Follow Ryan on facebook and twitter. Check out this April Fool's Day prank that a comedy club pulled on Ryan.
What can make a teacher give up the classroom and take to the stage? A better paycheck might be one reason, but for Jeff Jena, it was because he just saw so much humor in every day life that he had to share it with an audience that were old enough to buy liquor. After starting his career at the legendary Comics Annex in Houston, he got his big break when he appeared on Star Search in front of a national audience. From that point on, the past 20-plus years have been spent headlining packed houses in the best clubs across the country.
He's been calling the BOB&TOM Show for years (whenever he can get away from his dick of a boss, Randy) and he's also released a number of CDs, but now you can finally see Donnie Baker live and in person. That's right, Dishman (Randy's boss, and the one that actually hired Donnie) has given Donnie some time off, which means he's now traveling the country, and bringing his unique brand of humor (and plenty of Mountain Dew and "Woof" shirts) to a town near you. Follow Donnie on twitter and facebook.
After walking away from a sweet Wall Street job, Paul Mecurio turned to a life of comedy and hasn't looked back sense.

Now, along with being a top-notch headlining comedian, Mecurio also has a featured on the B&T Show (as well as a new CD) called Image Makeover, and starred in an online video sports series on HBO.com called "Got No Game."
