Stand-up comedian and actor Ari Shaffir describes his comedy as a puppet show, but way filthier and without the puppets. He was a featured stand-up on the HBO comedy series Down and Dirty with Jim Norton and has performed at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and Toronto, the San Francisco SketchFest, and the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland. Shaffir’s satirical shorts “The Amazing Racist” for National Lampoon were a viral sensation garnering millions of views. Additionally, he has appeared on TBS’s Conan, Comedy Central’s Jon Benjamin Has A Van, and dozens of national commercials. Ari hosts the increasingly popular podcast The Skeptic Tank and he is a regular guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
Shaffir resides in Los Angeles where he is a regular at The Comedy Store, The Improv and The Laugh Factory. He also headlines around the country and frequently tours with Joe Rogan.
Mike Lebovitz's comedy career began at the age of six with clowning classes at the local JCC. He's been delighting and confounding audiences big and small ever since with his offbeat, yet accessible brand of humor.
An accomplished actor, director and writer as well, he draws from a broad range of disciplines in building his act which uses outlandish viewpoints and subversive turns of phrase to highlight the inherent absurdity of being. He doesn't point out life's little quirks, he revels in them!
Mike's a member of the popular Chicago-based collective Comedians You Should Know.
