Cory is every woman. Mother, daughter, wife…ex-wife. This year, she appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, made her Fifth appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and a new TV special for Nick Mom. Cory appeared in the first season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and made it to the finale, where host Jay Mohr called her performance “flawless.” Other television credits include Comedy Central Presents: Cory Kahaney, The View, and many episodes of Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. Her off-Broadway hit “The J.A.P. Show” ran for six months in New York City and continues to tour the country, re-named “The Princesses of Comedy”
One of Australia's top comics, James headlines clubs and theatres across the country there, and has won several awards. He's best known in America for his role on HBO's hit Flight of the Conchords.
Comedian. Single Father. Divorced. Very Tired. Philadelphia may have been where Buddy Fitzpatrick was born, but it was in a Philadelphia Comedy Club where he came to life. And as any true Philiadelphian, he now lives in New Jersey. Buddy's stand-up made him a regular on Comedy Central with appearances on ABC and A&E. Buddy can be seen in the Damon Wayans' film, Harlem Aria, and in The Business of Strangers, starring Julia Stiles and Stockard Channing. His television credits include HBO's "Sopranos." Buddy has written, produced and performed his biographical play "Sides" at various NYC theatres.
Jermaine Fowler moved to NYC from his hometown in Maryland to become a male stripper dubbed "Lil' Hand Grenade". After an accident onstage involving hot body oil and a jump rope (lawsuit pending) he decided to try comedy. Before building a buzz with stand-up, Jermaine was featured in promos for McDonalds, Sobe, and Sports Illustrated. He was one of Backstage Magazine's "30 Actors on the Brink of Stardom", He also stars in the viral video HOMO THUGS and is the creator and star of the upcoming FOX Digital series, “JerMania.” Last year, he was one of the "New Faces" at the Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival and was invited back this year to tape Funny as Hell for HBO. You can catch him touring nationally with College Humor and Comedy Central on Campus and you can watch him on MTV2's Guy Code and Guy Court. Just 25 years old, Jermaine is one of New York City's up and coming superstars.
Carmen Lynch is the offspring of a petite Spanish nurse and a tall American Naval officer. She was born in California -- the town where Clint Eastwood was mayor -- and soon after moved to Spain to begin her performance career as a flamenco dancer (it sounds like a joke but she's got pictures to prove it). After graduating from The College of William & Mary with a degree in psychology, Carmen applied to the FBI but failed the psychology portion of the exam. So naturally, she moved to NY to pursue acting. Not realizing she'd moved to the mecca of stand-up comedy, Carmen eventually tried it out and fell in love -- or something. Carmen made her network debut as one of the top 20 comics on the first season of "Last Comic Standing" on NBC. She's also performed on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" and was featured on HBO's U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. She's also done a lot of Spanish shows including SiTV's "Latino Laugh Festival" and toured as one of the Latinas of Comedy with Paul Rodriguez. As a prolific writer, she's also freelanced with MAD Magazine. Catch her on this season of "Last Comic Standing."
