The Birthday Boys (IFC)
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."
Jon Daly (Kroll Show)
Jon Daly (Kroll Show)
Jon Daly is very funny. He's acted for television (Human Giant, Happy Endings) and film (Bride Wars, Mystery Team). He's starred in FunnyorDie videos (My Imaginary Friend is Fabio, Bieber 5021), and frequently performs at the UCB theatre in Los Angeles. He's also a pretty fantastic rapper as the non-Brett Gelman half of Cracked Out.
Brent Weinbach (Comedy Central)
Brent Weinbach (Comedy Central)
Brent Weinbach's stand-up comedy is weird. He does a lot of characters, he's physical, and his humor is absurd. Here are some other words to describe Weinbach: deadpan, silly, obscure, unconventional, smart, stupid, post-modern, grass roots, Berlin, 1980's, tennis, bike riding, Virgo, Rygar, etc. The list goes on and on. Brent began his comedy career in the underground San Francisco scene, but now tours all over the United States at clubs, colleges, festivals, theaters, music venues, living rooms, tennis, bike riding, Virgo, etc. He also has a t-shirt with his name and his face on it.
Joe Sib (98.7FM)
Joe Sib (98.7FM)
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.
