Emily Heller is a comedian and writer who likes you very much. You may have seen her on “Conan,” on the third season of “John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show” on Comedy Central, or as one of the New Faces at the 2012 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival. She is the creator and star of the Above Average series “The Future.” In 2011, She was included in Comedy Central’s Comics to Watch, won Rooftop Comedy’s Silver Nail Award, and was named one of the “Funniest People in Town” by 7×7 Magazine in San Francisco. In addition to performing all over the country, she is currently working as a staff writer on the new FOX series “Surviving Jack.”
Mike Lawrence is a New York City based comedian who has been featured as a stand-up on TBS’ “Conan,” and for Comedy Central appeared on “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show” twice and had his own episode of the Half Hour. He wrote and performed a segment for FX’s “Totally Biased.” He’s appeared on many notable podcasts including the “Adam Carolla Show,” “WTF with Marc Maron,” “You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes” and the “Artie Lange Show.” When he’s not working in NYC’s best clubs or headlining on the road he can be seen featuring for the likes of John Oliver, Marc Maron and Tom Papa, who shortly thereafter hired Lawrence as a writer for his pilot. He was one of the “New Faces” at the 2010 Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival and was back with Just For Laughs in 2012 doing their Festivals in both Chicago and Montreal, and recorded a set there for HBO Canada’s “Funny as Hell.” His debut album “Sadamantium” was released by Comedy Central Records in conjunction with the debut of his half hour special.
