Comedy Juice has been called one of the top live comedy brands in the world. They attract the best up-and coming comics along with stars.

Every Thursday at 10 p.m.
Comedian and writer, Gene Pompa's television credits include regular appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," on NBC and a handful of appearances on "The Late, Late Show" on CBS. Other credits include Comedy Central, HBO, Que Locos on Galavision, Showtime's "Latino Laugh Festival," and "In Living Color" on FOX, and Si TV!. Gene co-starred in Paul Rodriguez' "Comedy Rehab" in May, 2009.
Gene has completed two half-hour solo stand-up specials, "Pompalicious" for Comedy Central and a self-titled half-hour stand-up special for SI! TV, both airing regularly in rotation.
Gene's offbeat perspective plays extremely well with college age audiences and crosses all racial and ethnic lines. He headlines regularly at the Improvs in Hollywood, Irvine, Brea and Ontario and across the country, doing a stand-up show with great social relevance and irrelevance.
Gene was born in East Los Angeles and raised in the working-class suburbs of Southern California. He's been a Mexican-American for most of his life, except for a few years during the 70's, when he was a "practicing Chicano." As a product of the multi-ethnic suburbs of Los Angeles, Gene was inspired to utilize universal themes in his stand-up and his writing.
SHANG, a transplanted New Yorker whose carefully nurtured evolution from stand-up comedy to socio-political satire gives heavy flight to the spoken and outspoken word. The 2009 Famecast Comedy Winner, has been seen on CBS’S THE LATE LATE SHOW, BET's COMIC VIEW , HBO 's DEF JAM, STARZ 1st AMENDMENT, Si TV, COMIC’S UNLEASHED, NBC’S “HEROES”, CBS’S “CSI” QUE’ LOCOS, & COMEDY CENTRAL, and will be seen in his own up coming 1 HOUR SHOW TIME SPECIAL late 2010. With over a Million fans signed up thru his website and sell out shows all across the country, SHANg is one of the comedians to watch for.
