Born and bred in the Bronx, Adrienne Iapalucci’s skewed look on life is reflected in her unique brand of intelligent comedy. Her dark sense of humor is enhanced by her political incorrectness, and counteracted by her love of puppies. Comedy fans might recognize Adrienne by her performances as a semifinalist on season 7 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and her recent appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. http://www.adrienneiapalucci.com/
With skill and determination, Jon Laster swiftly paid his dues and worked his way to now being one of America’s leading comedians. After leaving a lifetime of basketball, including High School All-American status and Division I college basketball, Jon jumped into comedy. In less than 10 years, he has worked some of the most popular and well-respected rooms across the country, including New York’s Caroline’s and the Boston Comedy Club, and Comedy Works in his hometown of Denver.
Jon was the winner of NBC’s nationwide search for its best comedian, StandUp NBC, and was chosen as one of four to perform in HBO’s Comedy Wings nationwide search and showcase. When asked what he wants for his audience, Jon replied, “My goal is to make people feel good and forget about or at least laugh at life’s pressures, even if just for a few minutes.” And that’s exactly what he does. Jon is currently looking to expand his producing wings after a taste of producing, writing and starring in a show that aired on B.E.T. in 2011 entitled Busted, where he played a fake cop scaring spring breakers at Spring Bling! Jon is currently closing out the major comedy clubs in New York City every night and about to release a number of webisodes that he will be starring in and writing on. Twitter: @RealJonLaster
