Thai Rivera will make you uncomfortable in the best way possible. His politically incorrect style of humor has taken the comedy world by storm. Having moved from Arizona to LA Thai quickly became a fixture and force on the comedy scene. After becoming a favorite and regular at clubs such as the Hollywood Improv and World Famous Laugh Factory he started to travel across the country in the most unlikely of places, redneck bars. He has performed with some of the biggest name's in the world of stand up, some of you may recognize him from the Jo Koy Comedy Tour, he has also been featured on Comedy Central's Live At Gotham and The Logo Network's One Night Stand up. While Thai is very proud of who and what he is his disarming style and easy going delivery will put you at ease and there is no doubt that by the end of his set you will understand that Thai is comic who happens to be gay and not a gay comic, or as he would put it "a comic who happens to be a fag and not a fag comic." Thai's comedy has not only taken him across this country but as far away as Austraiia and Thule Greenland where he performed for out troops.
Jeff Richards joined the cast of Saturday Night Live as a Featured Player in September 2001. Jeff comes to SNL after touring the country doing stand-up comedy and impressions.
Growing up in Walnut Creek, California a suburb of San Francisco, Jeff excelled in both football and baseball. When a knee injury forced him off the field in his senior year of high school, he focused on public access television. His show "Hanson Live" put Jeff in front of and behind the camera for the first time. After graduating high school, Jeff hosted a morning show radio and created a sketch comedy show that also appeared on public access TV in the bay area. In 1996 he began attending the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill. There he joined the Chapel Hill Improv Players (CHIPS) where he performed live comedy for the first time. Friends, family and teachers encouraged Jeff to unitize his gifts of impersonation as a stand up comedian. Jeff soon began hosting shows at Charlie Goodnights in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In late 1997, Jeff moved to Los Angeles to pursue comedy as a career. He soon became a regular at the world famous Comedy Store and appeared in several local and nationwide commercials. He began touring comedy clubs across the country. In 2000 Jeff briefly joined the cast of Fox¹s MAD TV, appearing most memorably as David Letterman. In 2001, Jeff performed on CBS Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn and NBC¹s Late Friday. His performance on Late Friday caught the attention of Saturday Night Live who invited him to audition and then to become a feature player for the 27th season of the show.
Jeff¹s high-energy stand-up is a mix of his-growing arsenal of impressions (including Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka, Louie Anderson, Kevin Spacey, Gary Shandling, Charlie Rose, Don Imus, Dustin Hoffman, and Ozzy Osborne) and outrageous original characters (including the "knife guy", the "drunk girlfriend," her "jealous boyfriend" and the "jock/meathead" from every 80¹s teen movie).
