Tommy Johnagin began his stand-up career at the ripe young age of 18, a decision his parents were less than thrilled with. But how could they argue this life choice when their son obviously possessed a gift for joke telling, and more importantly, promised to pay them back for the six semesters of college he "wasted." While on stage (and hopefully on the air) Tommy doesn’t curse, but what he does do is find the humor in his life and the people he meets, (especially in his practical joke loving father). Tommy has been featured on the "Late Show with David Letterman" and and was a finalist on NBC's "Last Comic Standing." Follow Tommy on twitter. Tommy's new album, "Stand Up Comedy 2" is available now!
Though he thought he had it all as a pizza deliveryman, Gabriel Rutledge didn’t know what true success was until he jumped into stand-up comedy. After winning the Seattle International Comedy Competition in 2004, Gabriel has gone on to become a well-respected headlining act that manages to connect with audiences with a wit that’s honest and self-deprecating. Now he's got a wife, a son, and his very own self-titled comedy CD.

For longer than we can remember comedian Tim Bedore has been calling in or stopping by to deliver an editorial in which he talks about whatever happens to be on his mind. These musings can range from his relationship with his daughter, to hot topics in the news, and even updates on how the animal kingdom is waging war on mankind. From the Animal Conspiracy to his daughter Claire, Tim takes us inside his mind, and with the help of a few sound effects, puts together one of our favorite features. Follow Tim on Facebook.
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.
It's time for another exciting episode of the best joke filled, news feature hosted by a stand-up comedian named Bob Zany, The Zany Report. But the Report isn't the only thing you'll get when Bob calls in, we'll also find out where he's playing next, Bing Crosby will tell a joke, and some lucky fan will win prizes after fixing one Zany's less than successful punch lines. So you'd better tune it because it's going to be huge! In other news, Bob was recently featured in the Matt Damon film, The Informant! and is the star of the new documentary Close But No Cigar: Bob Zany which you can find here and pre-order the 2-DVD set here. Follow Bob on Facebook and twitter. Bob also has a new Podcast, "The Bob Zany Show" with Zan Aufdeerheide.
