Pete Holmes
Pete Holmes
Pete Holmes is a nationally touring standup comedian, actor, improviser, writer and cartoonist.
As a standup, Pete has a one hour Comedy Central Special, “Nice Try, the Devil” which will air in 2013. His 2011 CD “Impregnated with Wonder” made several “Top Comedy Recordings” lists. He’s appeared on his own half-hour “Comedy Central Presents” and on “Premium Blend.” He was also featured on VH1’s “Best Week Ever.”
Pete has written for and voices multiple characters on Comedy Central’s “Ugly Americans” and is the voice and writer of the popular “E*Trade Baby” commercials.
Pete’s short videos are ubiquitous on the “internet” and are featured regularly on “CollegeHumor.com,” “Tosh.0,” “Atom TV” and “Atom.com.” Several of his cartoons have been published in “The New Yorker” which he thinks is pretty neat.
Pete has most recently appeared on “Conan,” headlined an episode for “John Oliver’s New York Stand up Show” and was on Comedy Central’s special “The Hot List” in 2010.
Pete has also worked as a story editor on the FOX comedy “I Hate My Teenage Daughter,” and a staff writer on the NBC comedy, “Outsourced.”
Pete wrote this bio in the third person so you’d think he has an assistant or something, but he doesn’t.

The Birthday Boys
The Birthday Boys
As you may have head, IFC recently greenlit ten half-hour episodes of "The Birthday Boys," a new scripted original sketch comedy, which is executive produced by Bob Odenkirk ("Breaking Bad," "Mr. Show") and Ben Stiller (The upcoming "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," "Zoolander"). The series is in the classic vein of absurd/silly/smart/funny variety shows like two of our favorites "Mr. Show" and "Monty Python." Each episode will feature sketches that twist real-life moments and cultural touchstones."The Birthday Boys are too good to just be making viral videos. They are funny enough to fill time between episodes of Portlandia," said Ben Stiller. "I'm thrilled to be working with Bob Odenkirk again on a TV project. We try to do something every 20 years or so." Sounds good right?

But who are The Birthday Boys? Along with Odenkirk, cast of "The Birthday Boys" are a Los Angeles comedy group who just so happens to have the exact same name as the show. The comedy group includes Jefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen—whose combined credits include "Parks and Recreation", "The Office," "Conan," "Comedy Bang! Bang!", and "Portlandia." You can catch their act at places like the UCB Theatre Los Angeles and the Just for Laughs Festival. The series is written and co-directed by The Birthday Boys and Bob Odenkirk and with that much talent involved there's no way the show won't be laugh-out-loud funny and fit right in with our ever-growing line-up of "Always On, Slightly Off" programming. Added Odenkirk, "The Birthday Boys are a super funny and fresh new comic voice. I will try not to slow them down."

Taylor Williamson
Hi, my name is Taylor. I'm a comedian. I started performing while I was a senior in high school in San Diego, California. I now live in Los Angeles and travel the globe (if you don't count countries other than America and Canada) telling jokes. I've performed at the prestigious JUST FOR LAUGHS COMEDY FESTIVAL in Montreal, Canada and I was the youngest person to perform on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON. I've also appeared on MTV's TRL (It was canceled 2 weeks later), COMEDY CENTRAL'S LIVE AT GOTHAM (canceled) and this past summer I was a semi-finalist on NBC'S LAST COMIC STANDING (canceled twice so far). Though I lost, it's an honor to officially be one of the top 40 funniest people in the whole wide world and I look forward to ending more TV shows in the future.

Joe Sib
Joe Sib
Joe Sib is a man who wears many hats. So many hats that he doesn’t get much sleep—and that’s just the way he likes it. Sib spent the 90s playing in punk rock bands with a relentless touring around the world, then moved behind the scenes as co-owner of Side One Dummy Records where he signed and released albums from bands such as Flogging Molly, The Gaslight Anthem, ANTI-FLAG, and many more. Ever the music enthusiast with a wealth of stories only a touring musician could boast, Sib began hosting the Complete Control radio show in 2004, which airs in seven cities across the country, including 98.7FM in Los Angeles. Instead of abating Sib’s energy, the show simply added more fuel to the fire and spawned not only his one-man show–California Calling: A Story of Growing Up Punk Rock—but also an unexpected leap into standup comedy.

California Calling is a 70-minute “broken word” roller coaster ride delivered with enough energy and passion to power an entire city. Sib began performing his multi-media show in 2009 and held residencies at the renowned Largo at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles, CA and performed to a sold-out crowd at the Punchline Comedy Club in San Francisco, CA during the 2011 SF Sketchfest. From there Sib took the show on the road and eventually began breaking the one-man show down into smaller bits. He took the stage at the 2010 Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX (he has been invited back for 2012) as well as the 2012 FYF Fest in Los Angeles.

As Sib’s craft grew, it transformed and took on new dimensions and made the natural transition into straight up stand-up. Sib continues to work like a mad man, hitting the comedy circuits and making a name for himself in the comedy scene. Bringing the charisma and presence of a frontman who’s used to commanding massive crowds, boundless energy and enthusiasm of a teenager, and the relatable everyday experiences of family, friends, jobs, and music, Sib’s created his own unique brand of stand-up. Sib is an all around funny guy and family man who gets it. To hash out new material, he pops in to Los Angeles and Orange County-area comedy clubs regularly.

Last year, in conjunction with the Hollywood Laugh Factory, Sib established The Bare Bones Show, the ultimate version of the modern day variety show. Every third Thursday of each month, Sib hosts and cureates a night made up of the best comics, story tellers, magicians, and musicians. The only way to describe the show is “planned chaos” because you never know who might show up, get on stage and hijack the night. Aziz Ansari , Dane Cook, Bobby Lee, Daniel Tosh, Chris D’Elia, and Iliza Shlesinger are just a handful of comics blatantly name-dropped here who have stopped by The Bare Bones Show unannounced.

Musician, label owner, radio host, stand-up comic, a husband and father of two… no wonder Joe Sib never sleeps these days! If you get the chance be sure and check out Sib on stage performing and hosting his own DIY take on comedy, breaking rules and making his own.

“At this point in my life,” reflects Sib, “there’s no turning back. My kids’ friends are always saying to them, ‘Why is your dad always dressed in black? Your dad skateboards?! Did your dad just call you ‘dude?’” That’s Joe Sib.
Jeremy Burke
Jeremy Burke
The creative idea behind the comedy brand Loud Village reads like a riff on the classic one-liner, "A man walks into a bar", except the bar has been exchanged for a taco stand—but not just any taco stand, The Best Fish Taco in Ensenada. The man behind the brand is comedian and Upright Citizens Brigade alum Jeremy Burke, who launched Loud Village as a brand that merges alternative stand-up and music in a series of events. Originally a regular customer of Best Fish Taco, Burke teamed up with the owner, Joseph Cordova, to host one of the most dynamic comedy nights in LA, featuring both up-and-coming acts and appearances by such recent headliners as Aziz Ansari and Patton Oswalt. Both the event and its taco venue have gained cult notoriety, propelled by Loud Village's viral shout-out video entitled "Fishy, Fishy," which parodies rapper Kreayshawn's hit song, "Gucci, Gucci."

Adopting a punk rock ethos, music also plays heavily into the spirit of Loud Village's events and skits. With a record collection compiled of more than 200 albums, Burke's Built to Perform prized possession is a testament to his drive and the creativity that fuels it.
Who did you find funny when you were growing up?

My dad was always the funniest guy in the room. Both my parents have a great sense of humor, actually. I definitely get a lot from them. Growing up, I loved watching sketch comedy. Mr. Show With Bob & David and Saturday Night Live were my favorites.
You went through the sketch/improv program at the Upright Citizens Brigade. What is one piece of advice that you gleaned from that time which still holds true for you?

Yes, UCB is a wonderful place. I highly recommend them for anyone interested in comedy. Their motto will always stick with me—and that's "Don't Think." It's amazing what we let our minds get in the way of sometimes.
What's the concept behind Loud Village and what inspires the skits? What do you think makes a video go viral?

It's basically the fusion of alternative music and alternative comedy. There are so many parallels between both worlds. To me, it makes perfect sense to pair the two. It's like they have a ton of mutual friends and Loud Village is just the party they come to. An idea for a sketch can literally come from anything. Everything is funny. I feel like mostly, a video going viral is a right time, right place type of deal. What worked last time doesn't always hit again. The Internet can be pretty bipolar sometimes. Your best bet is to just make what you think is awesome.
Loud Village hosts a comedy night which combines alternative music and alternative comedy. What do you look for when you're bringing on a performer?

I check out other shows around town and see what's going on. Los Angeles is the best place to be for this stuff. When I book my shows, I always make sure we have some great up-and-comers as well as the bigger names. It's really cool when you watch someone go from opening the show to being one of the headliners in just a year.
