Funnyman, Lavell Crawford is quickly climbing the ranks and becoming one of the hottest comedic stars today. Recently he filmed a new one-hour special, Can A Brother Get Some Love?, in his home town of St. Louis, scheduled to premiere on Comedy Central. Crawford has also appeared on episodes of Workaholics for Comedy Central, AMC's Emmy Award-winning Breaking Bad and E! Entertainment's Chelsea Lately. Crawford gained national exposure on NBC's hit reality series Last Comic Standing resulting in his first half-hour standup special, Comedy Central Presents: Lavell Crawford in early 2009.

George Wallace derives his comedy from everyday experiences and simply shares moments of life. He finds humor everywhere he turns-from media to relationships to dialogue clich

és. Wallace's most recognized material is his "Yo Mama" and "I Be Thinkin" jokes. Currently, Wallace is Las Vegas' resident comedic headliner. In 2004, George appeared as the headlining star of his own show at The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas for a 30 day run. "Sin City" showed its admiration by extending George's contract indefinitely.

Named one of today's hardest working comediennes, Sheryl Underwood has starred in the films Bullworth, I Got the Hook Up and Beauty Shop, starring Queen Latifah. Underwood, a sought after media personality, is described as one of the world's brightest contemporary humorists. She is a weekly contributor on the Steve Harvey Morning Show, also serving as guest host, and appears on The Steve Harvey Project, the television version of the show airing on TV-ONE. Underwood also hosts The Sheryl Underwood Show on Jamie Foxx's The Foxxhole, airing on Sirius 106/XM 149, where she provides a mix of political satire, comedy and music. Also, Underwood hosted the fifth season of Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-Up and is a former contributor to the Tom Joyner Morning Show. Underwood presently has joined the popular daytime show The Talk.
