Eliot Chang

Eliot Chang has been seen on his own Comedy Central Half Hour, E!'s Chelsea Lately, Showtime and has received millions of views on his YouTube channel.

"In a comedic landscape that is often wrought with sarcasm, self deprecation, and cynicism, I have to say that Eliot Chang is a welcome relief! His point of view is honest and real yet Eliot's approach is marked by a fun positive energy that is genuine and refreshing. (That is something that sets him apart - the fact that he is still funny with this attitude and energy that other people try to put forth and it comes off as an act). He's simply fun to watch and makes me laugh." - JoAnn Grigioni, VP Talent, Comedy Central

Originally from New York City and now based in Los Angeles, he has toured in almost every state in America and parts of Europe and Asia. This comedian is also an actor and improviser. He studied improv in NY at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) and then with Armando Diaz at the Magnet Theater.

Adam Chong

Adam Chong is a comedian and wannabe globetrotter. Despite being new to the stand-up scene, Adam has already won over audiences with his sharp wit and charming personality. He is also the host of the Hadoo Lamsy podcast
