Eric Blake

The most significant challenge for the modern comedian is their ability to relate to a variety of audiences.  Eric Blake has taken this challenge to heart, expanding his material beyond the African-American lens, and identifying with many other cultures and experiences.  He is one of the few performers who can truly be labeled as a “universal comedian,” defying comedic normality.  Blake’s raw talent is also distinguished by his ability to custom-fit his comedy for the particular moment.  This witty improvisation can be revealed at the drop of a hat, bringing new characters to life.

This engaging comic has proven his worth night after night, performing to diversified audiences from coast to coast.  Some of his performances include NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” HBO’s “Bad Boys of Comedy,” BET’s “Comic View,” in which he has aired on “The Best of Comic View” for the fourth consecutive year.  He has also been televised on Galavision’s “Que Loco,” where he has displayed his cross-cultural abilities that have earned him a devote Latino following.  Furthermore, Blake performed as the headliner for the comedy hit entitled “War On Comedy,” which aired on HBO and has recently been released on video.  Eric’s acclaimed notoriety lead HBO to choose him among thousands to film a documentary on the eight most up and coming comedians in the country, which aired in the fall of 2013.  In addition, he has appeared on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, and has performed overseas for USO and Armed Forces Entertainment in Japan, Greece, Europe, Spain, Diego Garcia, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Baghdad.  Eric Blake is also part of Big Boy’s Neighborhood the nationally syndicated radio show on 92.3 iheartradio and is part of the Chocolate Sundaes Comedy series which is currently airing on Showtime.

Eric is a survivor of the notorious streets of South Central Los Angeles, where he experienced the “hard knock” life of gangs, drugs, and violence.  It was eventually the depraved life on the streets that propelled him on a search for meaning and purpose, where he began to rediscover his passion and talent in comedy.  As a young teenager, Eric brought life to people through his spontaneous and lighthearted humor, and considered it pure joy when he was able to enliven another’s spirit through a simple joke.  Blake’s challenged upbringing led to his rediscovery for purpose: bringing laughter to the soul.  This newfound purpose continues to be exercised with the firm belief of the old Proverb, “a happy heart doeth good like medicine.” 

Eric currently resides in Los Angeles, and when he isn’t performing his time is spent cultivating the blessings of family.  Above all, as Blake rises to the pinnacle of comedy, he will never forget the place where he has come from.

Vince Royale

Jersey City native Vince Royale was always the class clown though he never thought comedy would be his career. Currently living in Los Angeles the former salesman turned stand-up comedian and reality show star of Logo/MTV’s “Bad Sex” and regular on FOX's "Laughs" has been performing in Los Angeles hot spots and New York night clubs for the past seven years. Vince is extremely down-to-earth and full of charisma and he has an uncanny ability to turn the things he sees into world class jokes. He is humble and says that his passion for comedy and ability to do what he loves in front of an audience is indeed a blessing.

Vince will be the first one to tell you that his success with comedy truly happened by accident. After a few cocktails with a group of friends at a local Southern California bar  Vince swooped on stage at an open mic and made everyone laugh out loud. He was so funny that the club’s owner invited him to come back the very next week to perform in a comedy contest. Vince agreed to do the show; it’s a good thing he did because he won.

“I followed my passion ” Vince explained. “My mom wanted me to become a doctor but I couldn’t stand the sight of blood.”

It’s a good thing he chose comedy over surgery because after only a few years performing stand-up  Vince has already shared the stage with a number of well-known comedians that include Louis C.K. Russell Peters Jim Gaffigan and Martin Lawrence. However it was comedian Tommy Davidson that inspired him to take his act to the next level. Vince says that he was doing at least three shows a night up to five days a week when he met Davidson at the “Laugh Factory” in California. He asked the former In Living Color star what else he should be doing to further his career. Davidson sharp-tongued proclaimed “Do it seven days a week.”

Vince took his advice and has been performing comedy non-stop ever since.
