Mike Birbiglia is not only a popular and successful stand-up comedian, he's also starred in the one-man off-Broadway shows "Sleepwalk With Me" and "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend," is the author of the book, “Sleepwalk With Me And Other Painfully True Stories,” and wrote, starred in and directed the film Sleepwalk with Me (which was based on his one-man-show, which in turn was based on his real life experiences). The film received much critical acclaim and also won the the Best Of NEXT audience award at the Sundance Film Festival. Mike is currently back out on tour.

Billy Gardell took the long road to Hollywood, stopping at every small-town lounge, military base and comedy club along the way. His comedy act took him to Los Angeles, where his dedication to acting, along with touring as a stand-up comedian, allowed him to grow consistently in both arenas. After appearing in a number of television programs including "Yes, Dear," "Judging Amy" "My Name is Earl" and "Monk," Gardell is also the star of the hit sitcom "Mike and Molly" which airs Mondays on CBS. He's starring in the new Showtime special, "Billy Gardell Presents: Road Dogs" along with Don Learned, Bob Zany and Earthquake.
Dr. Will Miller
Long time friend of the show, Dr. Will Miller, is an ordained minister, former standup comedian, keynote speaker, teacher and full-time therapist at a major University, yet somehow he still finds time to write books including Why We Watch and Refrigerator Rights (the latter of which has just recently been re-released with an all new chapter and updated research.) He's also the formorst expert on how classic television secretly revals the inner stuggles in all of us. Meaning, while you watch shows like "Mr. Ed" and "Bewitched" to get a few laughs, he's looking to find out what's going on in that messed up brain of yours. Follow Dr. Will on twitter.
