About the Comics
Drew Michael (official website) broke out in 2018 with his self-titled, one-hour special on HBO (“Drew Michael”), released to widespread critical acclaim. Its radical approach in both format and content led The New York times to exalt it as “thrillingly subversive,” while GQ raved that Drew “represents the past and future of stand-up comedy.” The special earned a prestigious Writers Guild Award nomination, the only stand-up special to do so that year.
Drew has also released a half-hour special on Comedy Central as well as two full-length live albums (Funny to Death, Lovely), both of which debuted at #1 on the iTunes charts. He wrote for “Saturday Night Live” and guest-starred in an episode of “The Carmichael Show.”
Drew has also done a lot of other things, most of which are not relevant here.
Rob Maher (official website) is a two-time finalist in Comedy Central's Laugh Riot competition, and in 2017 he was featured on Kevin Hart’s “Hart of the City." He is a recurring guest on Baltimore's 98 Rock and one of Armed Forces Entertainment's featured comedians. He's had the great honor of performing shows for our troops in 17 countries, including Afghanistan, Kuwait, Italy, Turkey, Japan and South Korea. His Dry Bar Comedy Special, “You Can Make it Here…” just dropped, and under the banner of Die Laughing Productions he produces murder mystery comedy shows.
Denise Taylor knew she wanted to be a comedian ever since her fourth grade teacher called her a "ringleader" for distracting the class with jokes. At 26, Denise's sharp material and commanding stage presence has led her to open for several national touring headliners, including Judah Friedlander, Chris Gethard, Kamau Bell, Moshe Kasher, and many more. Denise is currently a contributor for The Onion. She also appears frequently on two of DC's most popular comedy shows: Fale University and The Time Machine Roast.
