One of the most requested comedians working today, Richie Byrne's talents are a unique mix. Combine the sharpness of the New York observationalist with the charm of an old-school storyteller, add a dominating stage presence with one of the highest laugh-per-minute counts in the business and you have only scratched the surface of this one-of-a-kind performer. A classic complainer, Richie's rants on family, diets, popular music are the type of humor we all have experienced and can relate to. His stories about being on the set of shows like Sex & the City and The Sopranos, going to the doctor, or even just trying to drive home from the show will have you roaring with laughter. His comedy credits include such well-known clubs as Dangerfield's, Carolines and Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan, as well as many clubs around the country. Richie has had comedy appearances on Comedy Central, VH1, The Rosie O'Donnell Show & The Morning Show with Mike & Juliet. Currently, Richie Byrne is proud to be the warm-up act for the hit series, The Dr. Oz Show. Richie is also very proud to be a main performer for Comedy Cures. Founded by Saranne Rothberg, Comedy Cures is a non-profit organization that uses comedy as a therapeutic tool. But, Richie's biggest accomplishment in show business is The Richie Byrne Show, an "off the wall", throwback to the old days of Variety.
Dave Cooperman has been on the comedy circuit for 2 decades. He has been on the same bill with comedians such as: Dave Attell, Bobcat Goldwait, Tracy Morgan, Bill Burr & Jim Gaffigan. Dave recently appeared in the Boston Comedy Festival, making it to the semi-finals where he was unjustly eliminated by the poor decision-making of celebrity judge Emmanuel Lewis. He has been featured on the nationally syndicated radio show: The Bob and Tom Show where his segment was repeated on their 'Best of' series, and featured on their comedy CD Oddballs. He married a lovely Chinese woman (unlike Emmanuel Lewis, her poor decision-making worked out nicely for him) and had 5 boys (2 sets of twins) - Dave talks a lot about his interracial marriage, his rather poorly managed temper, and the challenges of raising 5 little boys. Dave's act is characterized with physical comedy, but no, it's not just goofy stuff that would appeal only to the French - there's a lot of sharp joke writing going on. Dave has launched a comedy video series with his children, which has been very well received.
