Christopher Titus @ The Comedy Zone

Employing what he’s labeled “hard funny,” Christopher Titus has released seven ninety-minute albums in as many years. He has six one-hour comedy specials currently running on Comedy Central, and his seventh special, Born With a Defect, spent four weeks on the Billboard Top Ten Comedy Chart. After years of experimentation with dark and personal storytelling, he debuted his one-man show “Norman Rockwell is Bleeding” at the Hudson Theater in Los Angeles. It was from this performance that the dark comedy, “Titus,” was born on Fox. The show earned Titus a Writer’s Guild nomination as well as an Emmy nomination, and Newsday called him “TV’s most original voice since Seinfeld.”

His second show, “The Fifth Annual End of the World Tour,” was released in 2007 to rave reviews. Titus tackled such difficult issues as the Iraq war, racism, pedophilia and even his father’s unconventional and ridiculous funeral, where he, with his brother and sister’s help, spread his father’s ashes in a casino. These are issues most comedians would run from, but Titus never walks into the familiar.

“Love Is Evol,” Titus’ third one-man show, deconstructs relationships in a way no comic has ever attempted. Titus wades into domestic violence, plastic surgery, custody and all aspects of the nightmare relationships. This groundbreaking comedy special premiered on Comedy Central on Valentine’s Day. The album and dvd were released on February 15th, 2009. Titus claims that “this show will either fix your relationship or destroy it, and either way, you’re welcome.”

“Neverlution,” aired on Comedy Central on July the 4th, 2010. Titus takes no prisoners in this special, tackling the problems of our country, one joke at a time. He quotes, “every joke is a tiny revolution.” Titus declares that it’s time to take our country back, namely from today’s spoiled children, prescription medication, the media, technology and terrorism.

Titus’ fifth special, “Voice In My Head,” aired on Comedy Central in October 2013. This lighthearted show details all of Titus’ biggest screw-ups, including a hilarious story about his first job as Darth Vader for children’s birthday parties.

“Angry Pursuit of Happiness,” which premiered on Comedy Central in 2015, is Titus at his best, and he leaves no stone unturned in his relentless pursuit for the true meaning of life. Titus covers everything from the Pope, the Boston Bombing, to his Dad’s awkward, yet hilarious ED problem. In one of his most epic and darkly funny bits, Titus solves the nation’s problems by “Arming the Children.”

“Born With a Defect” was released in 2017, and held on the Billboard Top Ten Comedy Chart for four straight weeks. Titus claim is, “If you have kids, this show is 90 minutes of therapy. If you don’t, it’s 90 minutes of birth control.”

Titus is currently performing his newest one-man show, “Amerigeddon,” to sold out theaters across the country.

Titus shone in 2007 as the lovable character, Brody, in ABC’s “Big Shots.” He shared the screen with Dylan McDermott, Michael Vartan and Joshua Molina as a successful CEO who had total control in business, and no control in his relationship.

Inspired by such greats as Woody Allen, Steve Martin, and Cosby, who wrote, directed, produced and performed, Titus has sold ideas to NBC, ABC, FOX and Comedy Central. In 2013, Titus formed his own production company, Combustion World Industries, and produced his two most recent comedy specials, “Voice In My Head” and “Angry Pursuit of Happiness.” His first feature film production, “Special Unit,” wrapped in March of 2016, and is about four disabled detectives. Titus describes it as “The Shield with handicapped people” and is planning for release in January 2017.

After watching Christopher Titus perform live, there is no doubt that he is one of the best comics working today. With the complete package of comedy, acting and writing, there hasn’t been a performer like him in a long time.

Deon Cole @ The Comedy Zone

Deon Cole is one of the most in-demand talents on the comedy scene. Not only is he currently a cast member on four hit TV shows, he has also appeared in several popular feature films, released multiple standup specials, and follows a non-stop tour schedule. Armed with a “comic authority born of undeniable charisma” (AV Club), Deon’s completely unique style and delivery have made him a wildly popular performer with fans and critics alike.

Deon plays the character of adjunct college professor “Charlie” on ABC’s hit series Black-ish. His role on the Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe Award winning show, now in its fourth season, is a favorite, with Vulture declaring “Deon Cole is a comedic genius,” AV Club naming him a “scene stealer,” and Variety offering “Cole reminds me of John Belushi, another performer who brought essential sweetness to his unpredictable characters, and who could make you laugh just by looking a certain way at another person on screen.” In January 2018 Deon brought the beloved “Charlie” to Freeform in the Black-ish spinoff series Grown-ish, with Variety declaring him “the hilarious secret weapon that “Black-ish” has deployed in many side-splitting workplace scenes.” The half-hour comedy, which Deon stars in alongside Black-ish breakout Yara Shahidi, is a contemporary take on the current issues facing both students and administrators in the world of higher education.

Deon also stars as “Det. Daniel “DJ” Tanner” on the TBS comedy Angie Tribeca. The popular show, created by Steve and Nancy Carell, also stars Rashida Jones and is currently in its fourth season. In addition to his three scripted shows, Deon host the game show Face Value currently airing on BET. The show, Executive Produced by Wanda Sykes, finally answers the age-old question, “Can you judge a book by its cover?” Face Value flips the script to award cash and prizes to contestants for correctly guessing facts about strangers from all walks of life – based solely on their appearance and a few personal details. As host, Deon humorously breaks down stereotypes, exposes prejudices, and celebrates the human spirit by highlighting the commonalities and differences among people of various backgrounds, races, religions, beliefs and life experiences.

In addition to Deon’s cast member status on four TV shows, Deon will appear in the Whitney Cummings directed film The Female Brian. Fellow castmembers of the much-anticipated feature include Toby Kebbell, Beanie Feldstein, Cecily Strong, Sofia Vergara, Blake Griffin, Lucy Punch, and James Marsden. He has also been featured on several other comedy fan-favorite series including Benched (USA), The League (FX), and Wild N’ Out with Nick Cannon (MTV). He hosted his own series Deon Cole’s Black Box on TBS in 2013, and he is a familiar face on the latenight and daytime circuits, with multiple appearances on Conan (TBS), @midnight (Comedy Central), Last Call with Carson Daly (NBC), The Talk (CBS), and The Real (BET). Deon earned his first Writers Guild Award Nomination and his first Emmy Nomination for “Writing for A Variety, Music or Comedy Program” in 2010 as part of the writing staff on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien (NBC). He earned his second Emmy Nomination in 2011 for his work with the writers of CONAN (TBS) and he wrote for Conan O’Brien when he hosted the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner. Most recently, Deon received a 2017 NAACP Image Award Nomination for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his work on Black-ish and was featured as a presenter at the 2017 BET Awards.

In June 2016, Deon’s first hour standup special Cole Blooded Seminar premiered on Comedy Central. His half hour special premiered on Netflix’s The Standups on July 4th, 2017. His standup comedy has also been featured on Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam (Showtime), John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show (Comedy Central), and Laffapalooza (Comedy Central), along with his own Comedy Central Presents: Deon Cole. On the big screen, Deon was seen in all three movies in the wildly popular Barbershop feature film franchise, and he will appear alongside Sofía Vergara, Alysia Reiner, and Chris D’Elia in the feature The Female Brian directed by Whitney Cummings.

Deon performs standup to sold out audiences at venues across the country. He is originally from the south side of Chicago and currently lives in Los Angeles.

Using his experiences growing up in Newark Bill Bellamy started doing stand-up while he was a student at Rutgers University. Bellamy quickly discovered how much he enjoyed making people laugh and began honing his skills at small comedy clubs around the country and soon was making waves in the New York clubs like The Improv The Comic Strip and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

Two short years later Bellamy had earned a spot on HBO’s DEF COMEDY JAM where he notoriously coined the phrase “Booty Call.” The now famous late-night rendezvous moniker became the name for his first comedy special for Showtime; “Booty Call” was instantly one of the network’s top-rated specials. On the heels of the success of that special in the years following Bellamy became a staple on MTV as one of the first “VJs” on the network. He hosted several of their programming blocks including MTV JAMS and MTV BEACH HOUSE while interviewing everyone from the late Kurt Cobain to Janet Jackson.

Landing his own series “The Billy Bellamy Show” in 1996 Bellamy continued to star on the big screen in addition to garnering coveted guest roles in several prominent television series. In the feature world Bellamy starred in LOVE JONES HOW TO BE A PLAYER LOVE STINKS THE BROTHERS and ANY GIVEN SUNDAY. At the same time showcasing his mutli-hyphenate talents Bellamy continued to hone his comedy and stand-up prowess. He debuted his second comedy special; CRAZY SEXY DIRTY in May 2012 was one of the highest rated comedy specials of their respective years on Showtime.

Bellamy has recently guest-starred on USA’s WHITE COLLAR and appeared on several episodes of Tyler Perry’s MEET THE BROWNS on TBS. He also guest-starred on ABC’s CASTLE and USA’s ROYAL PAINS. Previously he hosted four seasons of the TV One comedy competition show WHO’S GOT JOKES? and two seasons of NBC’s Emmy Nominated LAST COMIC STANDING.

Bellamy recently wrapped his sitcom from syndicated television comedy from producer Byron Allen MR. BOX OFFICE. Bellamy starred alongside along side Jon Lovitz Tim Meadows and Viveca J. Fox.

Returning this year to his first love of stand-up comedy Bellamy debuted his third Showtime comedy special LADIES NIGHT OUT in February 2013. The nation-wide tour with the same name continued throughout the US in 2014. Both the special and the tour feature additional material by comedians Ali Siddiq J. Reid and D’Lai.

In addition to MR. BOX OFFICE Bill was recently a recurring co-host on THE RACHAEL RAY SHOW and ACCESS HOLLYWOOD and hosted the red carpet for the ESPY AWARDS for ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT.

This past year Bill headlined a nation-wide comedy tour The Standing Ovation Tour with Tommy Davidson Sommore Marc Curry & Tony Rock. Bellamy just wrapped principal photography on his latest film THE BOUNCE BACK with Shemar Moore and Nadine Velazquez. Next up Bill will headline a six city run for our US troops stationed in Japan.

His newest venture will be hosting the Telepictures/Scripps syndicated hit show LETS ASK AMERICA which will begin shooting in August of 2014 and airing in 2015 in most of the country’s major markets.

Bellamy resides with his wife and two young children in Los Angeles.

Bellamy quickly discovered how much he enjoyed making people laugh and began honing his skills at small comedy clubs around the country and soon was making waves in the New York clubs like The Improv The Comic Strip and at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

Two short years later Bellamy had earned a spot on HBO’s DEF COMEDY JAM where he notoriously coined the phrase “Booty Call.” The now famous late-night rendezvous moniker became the name for his first comedy special for Showtime; “Booty Call” was instantly one of the network’s top-rated specials. On the heels of the success of that special in the years following Bellamy became a staple on MTV as one of the first “VJs” on the network. He hosted several of their programming blocks including MTV JAMS and MTV BEACH HOUSE while interviewing everyone from the late Kurt Cobain to Janet Jackson.

Landing his own series “The Billy Bellamy Show” in 1996 Bellamy continued to star on the big screen in addition to garnering coveted guest roles in several prominent television series. In the feature world Bellamy starred in LOVE JONES HOW TO BE A PLAYER LOVE STINKS THE BROTHERS and ANY GIVEN SUNDAY. At the same time showcasing his mutli-hyphenate talents Bellamy continued to hone his comedy and stand-up prowess. He debuted his second comedy special; CRAZY SEXY DIRTY in May 2012 was one of the highest rated comedy specials of their respective years on Showtime.

Bellamy has recently guest-starred on USA’s WHITE COLLAR and appeared on several episodes of Tyler Perry’s MEET THE BROWNS on TBS. He also guest-starred on ABC’s CASTLE and USA’s ROYAL PAINS. Previously he hosted four seasons of the TV One comedy competition show WHO’S GOT JOKES? and two seasons of NBC’s Emmy Nominated LAST COMIC STANDING.

Bellamy recently wrapped his sitcom from syndicated television comedy from producer Byron Allen MR. BOX OFFICE. Bellamy starred alongside along side Jon Lovitz Tim Meadows and Viveca J. Fox.

Returning this year to his first love of stand-up comedy Bellamy debuted his third Showtime comedy special LADIES NIGHT OUT in February 2013. The nation-wide tour with the same name continued throughout the US in 2014. Both the special and the tour feature additional material by comedians Ali Siddiq J. Reid and D’Lai.

In addition to MR. BOX OFFICE Bill was recently a recurring co-host on THE RACHAEL RAY SHOW and ACCESS HOLLYWOOD and hosted the red carpet for the ESPY AWARDS for ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT.

This past year Bill headlined a nation-wide comedy tour The Standing Ovation Tour with Tommy Davidson Sommore Marc Curry & Tony Rock. Bellamy just wrapped principal photography on his latest film THE BOUNCE BACK with Shemar Moore and Nadine Velazquez. Next up Bill will headline a six city run for our US troops stationed in Japan.

His newest venture will be hosting the Telepictures/Scripps syndicated hit show LETS ASK AMERICA which will begin shooting in August of 2014 and airing in 2015 in most of the country’s major markets.

Bellamy resides with his wife and two young children in Los Angeles.
