In 1997, Tim released his first CD, "Sounds Like Fun!" By then he had become a regular guest on "The Bob & Tom Show," a nationally syndicated radio show now heard in 150 markets. For two years, Tim did a weekly segment on the show called "The One Minute Song," which spawned two more CDs released on Tim's own label, Hits & Giggles Records. At a recent Hits & Giggles awards dinner, Tim was recognized by the label as their "Best Artist," an award he has won three out of the last four years. Even though he is the only act on the roster, a misty-eyed Cavanagh was quoted as saying, "It's still a big thrill."
As for television, Tim has not only appeared on Comedy Central, he was chosen by the network to do several live performances for their clients and customers. His national appearances on ABC-TV, Showtime, WGN, and Comcast have helped Tim deal with his biggest TV disappointment--calling QVC seconds too late to get a great deal on a colander set.
Drew Lynch is a comedian, actor, writer, and comma user. Other people might know him as “that guy that stutters.” Other people might know those other people as “his parents.”
A few years ago Drew moved out to LA to become an actor. Sometimes things don’t go according to plan i.e. you get hit in the throat with the occasional softball, and you have to adapt. And that’s just what he did! After finding comedy as an outlet, he began performing regularly. And irregularly.
Since then, he has been seen on the Dr. Oz show and most notably was runner-up on season 10 of America’s Got Talent (damn puppets).
Jim Florentine is a stand-up comedian, actor, writer, comedian, voice artist, and performer, who is currently co-hosting VH1 Classic's hit heavy metal talk show series "That Metal Show" alongside Eddie Trunk and now label-mate Don Jamieson. JIM FLORENTINE is best known for his work on Comedy Central's show Crank Yankers where he performed the voice of Special Ed, a mentally challenged teenager, and Bobby Fletcher, a despicable, alcoholic slob who is the older cousin of Ed.
"Being a fan of the Metal Blade label since its inception, it is truly an honor to be part of the family now. I will try my hardest to make the heaviest comedy album ever. So expect plenty of fat jokes!"
Jim has also been in involved in shows such as HBO Inside the NFL, Late Late Show withCraig Kilborn, Chelsea Lately on E, The Howard Stern Radio & TV Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC, MTV Music Video Awards, Spike TV Video Game Awards, HBO Down and Dirty Comedy Show, and The Apprentice just to name a few.
Described by Jay Leno as "the best joke writer in America," by British comedian Gary Delaney as the best joke writer in the world, and by "Weird Al" Yankovic as one of the funniest people on the planet, Emo Philips has performed over 6000 times throughout the English-speaking world, including a multi-week run at the Playhouse Theater in London's West End. Since starting out in Chicago in 1976 at the age of twenty, Emo has had award-winning comedy albums, several cable specials (including an hour-long one on HBO), and many appearances on network television, both in America and in the UK. He has appeared in films (most notably, as the table-saw demonstrator in UHF) and has lent his distinctive voice to animated TV shows (such as Slacker Cats, Doctor Katz, Adventure Time, and Home Movies), but his first love, stand-up, remains his true one.
Greg Warren, most recently seen on Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show and Comedy Central Presents, has built a strong fan base with an act inspired by his Midwestern upbringing. His CDs, Running Out of Time (Sept 2013) and One Star Wonder (June 2009) hit #3 and #6 respectively in iTunes Top Comedy Albums. An honest mix of self-deprecation, frustration and an arsenal of lifelike characters highlight Greg’s colorful perspective.
Greg attracts a diverse audience spectrum, having performed as a finalist on BET’s Coming to the Stage and on Country Music Television. He is a favorite on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show, which led to touring theaters nationwide with The Bob & Tom All Stars Comedy Tour.
Chris has been on Comedy Central and performs clubs and colleges all over the country. He could be called the Kurt Warner of comedy, because he spent eight years in the grocery store business before becoming a stand up comedian. His unique way of looking at everyday situations in a comical sense has led Chris to translate some of the most unbelievable stories into hilarious comedy bits. Chris just likes to have fun in life and it shows when he is on stage, inviting the crowd to have fun with him, while he puts on one of the most energetic shows on the comedy circuit today. The audience walks away laughing and talking about things they had long forgotten.
