Joey Medina, a Puerto Rican who was born and raised in the Bronx, New York, is one of the freshest and funniest comedians around today. Joey spent most of his teen years perfecting his boxing skills that would one day earn him a state Championship as a professional and a shot at the world title before becoming a heavy-hitter in the comedy arena. Joey is a veteran of over 50 television appearances and he just completed his own SHOWTIME Comedy Special, “Taking off the Gloves.” He headlines comedy clubs, casinos and theaters throughout the United States and has also toured Asia, Europe and the Middle East. Most recently toured alongside, Russell Peters in New Zealand and Australia where he performed in front of over 36,000 fans. He also has proudly performed for the US Armed Forces during wartime in Bosnia, Kosovo, Kuwait and Iraq several times, as well as the USS Roosevelt aircraft carrier. Joey also starred in Paramount Picture’s “The Original Latin Kings of Comedy” with Cheech Marin, Paul Rodriguez, George Lopez and Alex Reymundo. Recently Joey produced & directed “Cholo Comedy Slam” a brand new comedy and music special hitting stores July 27, 2010. He also starred in “Latin Palooza” – A hilarious DVD that Joey hosted and produced. Which followed his award winning debut comedy CD “Below the Belt.” He can also be seen on “Cheech Marin and Friends: Live From South Beach” DVD by Comedy Central and “Comedy on Steroids” & “Nightclub Girls” DVDs both distributed by Laughing Hyena. His first screenplay, “El Matador” in which he made his directorial debut, swept the 8th Annual East Los Angeles Chicano Film Festival in 2002 by winning Best Film, Best Director and Best Acting awards. The film is currently available on DVD through Maverick Entertainment. Joey wrote, produced and hosted Sí TV’s first scripted television show, “Circumsized Cinema.” In addition, Joey is also recognized as one of the hosts and producers of “Loco Comedy Jam,” a stand-up comedy show featuring some of the best Latino comedians in the country on Mun2 Television. He was had a co-staring role in the action-comedy “Zombie Strippers” with Jenna Jameson and Robert Englund (Freddy Kruger). Latin Style Magazine says “Joey Medina is one of the few comedians that can bridge together urban with mainstream comedy to make his style a hit throughout the country.”
Tyler Boeh is professionally funny. He started performing stand-up in Portland, OR and he proved himself as a young but formidable comedian by taking 4th place in the month-long Seattle International Comedy Competition less than two years into his comedy career. Shortly following the competition, Tyler was featured in an article in Horizon Air Magazine about how comedians don’t have to move away from the NW to have a successful career in comedy. By the time the article was published, Tyler had moved away from the NW in hopes of having a successful career in comedy.
Tyler made the move to Boston, MA, where he would spend the next four years continuing to hone his craft. He quickly became a favorite on the Boston scene, but continued to work the road, staying busy performing at clubs across the country. In September of 2008 Tyler participated in the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition where he took 3rd place. Boeh was also a semi-finalist in the Boston Comedy Festival in both 2008 and 2009. In 2009 he was featured on an episode of the second season of NESN’s Comedy All-Stars. In 2011 Tyler had had enough of New England’s winters and decided it was time for another cross-country move.
Now back on the west coast, living in L.A., Boeh is rapidly establishing himself at the top clubs in Hollywood. With a background in improv and a love for writing, Tyler’s act is fast paced with a shotgun delivery. His comedy can be described as high-energy, intelligent, physical, and silly. Tyler has a balance of west coast charm and east coast attitude and has performed across the country from Portland, OR to Portland, ME, so whether he is on the small stage of an intimate comedy club or performing at a theater, Tyler is comfortable, confident, and hilarious. He uses his quick wit and celebrated talent of “beatboxing” to bring audiences to hysterical heights.
