Owen Benjamin
Owen Benjamin

His first hour-long special High Five Till It Hurts premiered on Comedy Central in 2014. Owen can be also heard on an upcoming episode of the long-running Fox comedy Family Guy.

Presently, you can catch Owen Benjamin perform stand-up live throughout the country leading up to his second hour-long special Huge Pianist.
Jamel Johnson
Jamel Johnson
Known in Columbia as "Yamel Yohnson", noted male feminist Jamel Johnson of Woodbridge, Virginia, has made a name for himself on the D.C. comedy scene through a hard-to-hate mixture of non-threatening yelling, weird stories and impressively specific but not alienating sports and music references. He lives for the laugh from the one dude in the back of the room who also watches too much Sportscenter and feels kind of OK about it even though really talented people work hard to write shows like The Wire.

Jamel’s comedy smoothly walks audiences through everything from racism to Law & Order: SVU, including the consequences of gentrification and how to tell if you can eat a pastry given to you by a drug addict who witnessed a murder last night.

Jamel performs regularly at the Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse and the DC Improv, mostly as a stand-up but at times appearing with his musical comedy group, Romane and Lettuce. He has performed at Gotham Comedy Club in New York City, the Upright Citizens Brigade theater and The Virgil in Los Angeles (including a set on Hot Tub with Kurt Braunholer and Kristen Schaal) and at the Bentzen Ball Comedy Festival in Washington, D.C. You might have seen him hosting trivia on shrooms at some point, too.
Danny Charnley
Danny Charnley
Danny Charnley spent his boyhood on the Chesapeake Bay in southern Maryland, where, if he is remembered, it is as the second-worst dresser in the county. After graduating from the University of Maryland, Danny continued to pursue his dream of making people laugh, or, sigh and shake their heads in disapproval. Even with a massively loyal following, Danny Charnley feels no obligation to be “funny” and it shows. Often, he writes his bio in the 3rd-person and pretends like someone else did it. Some people say Danny is very handsome, funny and great. Danny likes to call those people “geniuses.” He has performed in bars, seafood restaurants and comedy clubs all over this great country and has shared the stage with the likes of Tony Woods and Dan St. Germain. Danny Charnley is the President of Stand-up Comedy and has been featured on Playboy.com.​ Follow him on Twitter @dankcharnley.​
Donnie Sengstack
Donnie Sengstack
Though he is only 20, Donnie Sengstack is making a name for himself in the world of comedy. His unique witty style of comedy appeals to generations young and old. He may have a stutter, but that takes nothing away from his strong delivery and stage presence. It is simply another tool in his comedic arsenal. When he was just 18 years old he became a finalist in the Magooby’s Joke House Comedian of the year competition, and has gone on to much more since. He has performed in front of crowds all over the world, across the US and the UK.
