Auggie Smith

Auggie Smith is one of the most underrated comedy stars of his generation. Having toured the country as a working comic for over a decade, it is only recently that he has started to get the recognition he deserves.

Auggie made history in 2010 by winning both the San Francisco and Seattle comedy competitions in the same year. The San Francisco event alone was something not able to be won by giants like Robin Williams, Ellen Degeneres, Dane Cook, Ralphie May, Kevin Pollack and Rob Schneider. And in between those events, he managed to sneak in an L.A. show with the legendary Gallagher.

A huge favorite of the hit syndicated radio program "The Bob & Tom Show', he has even headlined on the 'Bob & Tom All Stars of Comedy' tour. His comedy is also in regular rotation on Sirius radio. In 2008, he was named Club Comic of the Year at the Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival.

No stranger to television, Auggie headlined the Comedy Central 'Live at Gotham' comedy show, in addition to a memorable run on NBC's 'Last Comic Standing'.

Rudy Moreno

Rudy Moreno was born and raised in the tight-knit community of Lincoln Heights, a suburb of Los Angeles. Rudy began his career at 13 in garage bands with friends in his neighborhood. He attended Lincoln High School and graduated at 16 years old.

Rudy went on to broadcasting school with a dream to work in radio. After several audition tapes, he received a call from a station in Santa Maria, California, where he worked the weekend shift. Rudy continued to pursue his dream of broadcasting with stints in Santa Paula and then as an intern at LA radio station KLOS.

Rudy then worked in nightclubs as a DJ and did the typical DJ work at parties, social gatherings, and weddings. Eventually, Rudy got married and decided to do the 9 to 5 thing, and in 1991 was approached by band leader Rudy Salas of the famed rock group Tierra. "He said that I was so funny that I should be a comedian, and if I wanted to, he would help me and let me open for the band," which they did, and after that, it just snowballed.

By the summer of 1991, Rudy was approached by TV Producer Jeff Valdez, who booked Rudy for his first TV appearance on Comedy Compadres. Since then, Rudy has appeared on over 40 television shows in his current career, including Jimmy Kimmell, Criminal Minds, Everybody Loves Raymond, Arrested Development, and shows on NBC, CBS, ABC, Starz, HBO, and Showtime.

Besides TV, Rudy continues to open concerts for stars like Smokey Robinson, Black Eyed Peas, Bobby Caldwell, Los Lobos, Natalie Cole, and many more.

Rudy has been a National Headlining Comedian for over 30 years with shows in Las Vegas, New York, and Los Angeles and has worked at all of the A-List Comedy Clubs across the country. He has the longest-running show in Los Angles at the Ice House in Pasadena, spanning 20 consecutive years.

Rudy is also an accomplished guitar player and has a working classic rock band.

Rudy and his family are the creators of Komics for Kids, an annual fundraising event to help inner-city children.

So whether it be broadcasting on the radio, doing stand-up, acting on TV or theater, or just rocking out with his band, Rudy will entertain you. Otherwise, he'll have to go back to that boring job as a bikini model.

Vanessa Graddick

Vanessa Graddick was born in St. Paul, MN, where she grew up an athlete and performer and was involved in several social clubs. Before her career as a comedian, she was a Children’s Social Worker in both Minnesota and California. In January 2006, Vanessa moved to the City of Angels to see what else the world had in store. However, it was much more than expected. On November 1, 2006, her mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Needing an instant distraction from real life, that very night, Graddick took to the stage, and the people laughed. Since then, this talented, driven, and most importantly, funny Stand Up Comedian has been taking comedy by storm. Though based in LA, Vanessa has performed all over the United States, including major Comedy Clubs in California, New York, Washington, DC, Pennsylvania, Florida, and more. Additionally, she has entertained American troops in Kuwait, Iraq, Korea, Japan, Afghanistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

Vanessa has participated in several comedy competitions, including the New York Underground and Boston Comedy Festivals. In addition, she was the winner of Uncle Clyde’s Comedy Competition in Los Angeles and a semi-finalist in the Bay Area Black Comedy Competition. To round off her comedic competition experience, Vanessa was a Top 10 Finalist in the NBC Stand Up For Diversity National Search.

Since then, Vanessa has been on Byron Allen’s Comics Unleashed, The Gossip Queens, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, Showtime Network’s Lip Service, and NuvoTv’s Stand Up and Deliver, and BET’s Comic View. She has also appeared on The Real Husbands of Hollywood and Black Jesus. Not only has she made her presence felt on camera, but Vanessa also moved behind the camera as a Segment Producer on a celebrity news show, The Gossip Queens, and a producer on the hilarious game show Funny You Should Ask.

Vanessa's comedy is direct, fast-paced, and intelligent, with attitude and no regrets. Real life, real talk, and real funny!

With her introspective and thought-provoking comedy, Vanessa Graddick is proving quickly to be a name to watch out for.
