Known to those in the know as “The Full Charge,” Matt Fulchiron hardly lives up to his nickname. Worn down by relationships, adult responsibilities, and limited resources; Fulchiron coasts through his life and his act with a sarcastic and defeated outlook. Matt has performed on the television shows “Comedy Central Presents,” “Live at Gotham,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” “Last Comic Standing,” “Tosh.0,” and “Comics Unleashed.” He’s appeared on The Bob and Tom Radio show, and was the opening act on Daniel Tosh’s “Tosh Tour Twenty Ten.” There’s nothing you can do about it.
Thai Rivera, without a doubt is one of the fastest upcoming comics in the game today. Shocking and winning over even the most unexpected of audiences, this openly gay comic offers nothingbut the most brutally honest & oftentimes politically incorrect thoughts on everything from the homeless to AIDS. The recent title holder of the World Series of Comedy competition in Vegas this past Septembers, Thai is best recognized for his appearance on Comedy Central’s “Stand Up Revolution” on which Gabriel Iglesias raves “...he is amazing... put your seatbelts on its about to get crazy!...”.
Thai’s brilliant stage talents have been recognized by some of the best in the business. In addition to “Stand Up Revolution” he has also toured alongside Gabriel Iglesias, Jo Koy, and Russel Peters.
“There’s no question this kid is going places...” Dave Tribble – Entertainment Solutions (Seattle)
“To Thai, political correctness is like wearing a coat in the summer. It’s unnecessary. If you brought yours, just check it at the door because you won’t need it during his show.
You may not want it afterwards either,” First Order Historians.
You may have also seen Thai on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, The Logo Network’s One Night Stand Up, NUVOtv's Stand up and Deliver, SiTv’s Latino 101 and he has also recently toured throughout Australia, Japan and Greenland for our American troops.
Jerrod Carmichael is an LA based standup and performer originally from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He has been crafting his standup for over three years and this year was featured in Variety as being one of the top ten comics to watch, as well as being one of the New Faces at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
Jerrod is a regular around some of LA’s favorite standup shows, including Meltdown, The Improv, Laugh Factory and many alternative rooms.
Comedian Jerrod Carmichael is getting his very first standup special, and it's going to be a big one: an hour-long special for HBO. The untitled special will be taped May 7th, 2014 at The Comedy Store, and it will air later this year. Carmichael's HBO hour is being produced by Funny Or Die and directed by Spike Lee. This will be only the second standup special Spike Lee has directed, following the 2000 standup concert film The Original Kings of Comedy.
In an interview with us back in 2012, Carmichael discussed plans to do a special:
"I have an idea [for a special]. I think it's a good idea. It's very specific to me … If you do a special, you want to do it not just to do a special. You want to do it because you have something to say, and you think it can be impactful. So, what I want to say is coming out more, and I'm excited about that."
It's very rare for HBO to give an hour special to a comedian as new as Carmichael, who, although he's been doing standup since 2008, has never done a set on TV. Most comedians start with late night spots or a half-hour Comedy Central special, so Carmichael getting an hour on HBO, which is a prestigious and sought-after gig in the industry, as his first televised performance says a lot about how much faith HBO has in him.
Carmichael, who ranked first in a 2013 poll we conducted amongst LA bookers and hosts to determine their favorite up and coming standups, has appeared on Fox's The Goodwin Games, the upcoming movie Neighbors, and created and starred in a sitcom pilot that's currently in development at NBC.
