Collin Moulton: Less than two years after getting started, Collin won his first comedy competition (the 2001 Rocky Mountain Laff-Off), and later that year found himself featured on Comedy Central’s “Best of the Improv.” 2003 proved to be another successful year for the up-and-comer, as he was a “Best in Fest” feature at the renowned Montreal Comedy Festival.
Flash back eleven years ago to LA’s Laugh Factory – aspiring stand-up comic Collin Moulton waits in line 10 hours for the chance to take the stage for three minutes on his first open mic night. Now fast-forward to December 11th 2009. Collin’s still waiting around at a comedy venue, but this time he’ll get considerably more than three minutes of stage time, and best of all, he’s performing his first ever Stand-up special for Television (Showtime).
A 30 minute stand-up special to air on Showtime December 2010.
…300 shows a year around the country, including performances at comedy shrines like Caroline’s (NYC), The Funnybones (Columbus, Des Moines, Virginia Beach, Richmond, Toledo, Omaha, Richmond, Hartford etc...), The Improv (LA, Irvine, Brea, Denver, Tampa, etc...), The Laugh Factory, The Icehouse (Pasadena, CA), the Punchline (San Francisco), and Ridley’s Comedy Castle (Detroit, MI). When not working the country’s glitziest rooms on the coasts, Collin leaves no comedy club stone unturned in the nation’s heartland. One week you might find him working a stretch of one-nighters across Texas and Oklahoma; the next week he could be on a four-night stand in Ohio. Or late this fall he could be emceeing Whitey’s annual redneck dragqueen show in Burlington Iowa... Maybe you should wait to see that on video.

Robbie Pickard: Robert Mark Pickard III was born and raised in Palos Verdes, Calif., where he surfed, played sports and until he was 16, thought girls had cooties. His soccer skills helped get him into the University of California, Irvine, where he got his B.A. in Literary Journalism. Passionate about comedy and needing money, Robbie waited tables at the Irvine Improv his last two years of college. He was nearly fired on a daily basis for watching the comics while his customers waited 30 minutes for their mozzarella sticks. It wasn’t a job—it was like going to comedy school.
A collegiate soccer player turned frat guy, Robbie’s first taste of performing comedy came when he wrote and hosted roasts of his fellow fraternity brothers. Even though they don’t remember any of it, all of the drunks at these events thought he was super funny, and it gave Robbie the unmerited confidence he needed to pursue a career in comedy. Robbie stepped on stage for the first time on May 11, 2007 at The Ice House in Pasadena, Calif. He did really well because he had about 40 overly supportive friends in the audience, resulting in even more unmerited confidence. Next, he performed at a dive bar in Pomona, Calif. called Scoreboards. He did the exact same five minutes of material that did so well in front of his friends the week before, and bombed miserably. Humbled and humiliated, the journey began.
Since then, Robbie has been moving up the ladder in the Los Angeles comedy scene at a rapid pace. His sharp, tightly written material paired with his laid-back delivery have been winning over audiences across the country. Already a regular at all of the Improvs in Southern California, he is also a regular performer on Comedy Juice, recently hailed by Sirius Satellite Radio as "the best standup show in the country.” In a short time, Robbie has already performed at many of the top comedy clubs in the country: The Improv (Hollywood, Brea, Irvine, Ontario), The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Store, The Ice House, Caroline’s on Broadway, The Broadway Comedy Club, Stand Up NY and many more. Robbie has shared the stage with some of the hottest comedians working today, including Bill Burr, Jim Norton, Aziz Ansari, Rob Schneider, Harland Williams and Tom Green. He has also been hitting the road as the feature act for Sadiki Fuller and Tom Clark, touring across the Pacific Northwest.
In April 2008, Robbie started producing and hosting his own weekly show at his alma mater, UC Irvine. Monday Night Comedy @ The Anthill Pub has gone on to be one of the most successful recurring social events that the school has ever seen. Each week, Robbie works out new material and brings in top headliners from around the country. Many students that graduated years ago still come back on Monday nights to catch the show. In 2008, he was selected to perform in the California Comedy Festival and was a finalist in Orange County’s Funniest Person Competition. Soon after, producers from National Lampoon caught his act and gave him a role in their film, "Dirty Jokes: The Movie." He has written and produced many popular short films on YouTube, and is finishing writing his first TV pilot.
Robbie currently resides in Santa Monica, Calif., and can be seen live all over Los Angeles, Orange County and the rest of the country.
