Matt Knudsen (Kah-nood-son) was born in Hawaii, raised in the Mid-west and traveled around the world as a merchant marine. After eventually putting down his sea bag, he picked up a microphone and began performing comedy in Los Angeles and New York. As a stand up, he’s appeared on Conan and The Late Late Show, as well as several festivals, including the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal; where his appearance garnered a “Best of the Fest,” nod. You can see Matt share the big screen with Sean Penn in Warner Brothers feature Gangster Squad or you may recognize him from his work in Go On, Big Love or Men of a Certain Age just to name a few. Matt’s also been a part of several high profile commercial campaigns for BMW, Apple Computers and GE; which have aired during the Superbowl and The Olympics. His album The Comedy Stylings of Matt Knudsen “Mixes droll observation with dry, almost hypnotic delivery,” (The Onion A.V. Club) and his style has been called “Amazingly measured and deliberate…Well done.” (Punchline Magazine)
Lebanese American born in Oakland California, Sammy K Obeid double majored at UC Berkeley to prepare for a career in comedy. A professional, nationally-touring comedian at 27, Sammy's style has been described as 'refreshingly intelligent', 'hopeful and inspiring', and 'a youthful perspective that reaches all ages'. Recently placing in the top 3 of the San Francisco International Comedy Competition amongst veteran comedians of 15 years or more, Sammy's 4 years in comedy have proven explosive. His national appeal has earned him 'Best of the Fest' in the Arab American Comedy Festival in New York, as well as the Out of Bonds Festival in Austin. Sammy is the youngest member of the national touring troupe, CoExist Comedy, the founder of his own comedy group and enterprise, KO Comedy, as well as the first comedian ever to appear on the Food Network telling jokes.
