Dan Gabriel: Half Filipino and Half Bald White Dude is what makes up Dan’s vaguely ethnic look. Born and raised a surfing community next to the beach but forced to watch the movie “Jaws” at age 4 left him confused and scared of water. Once in high school, Dan developed a sense of humor in an attempt to be as cool as guys who could surf. While attending UC Davis, Dan’s friends forced him to try stand-up comedy. Soon Dan was opening for comedy legends like Dave Chappelle, Mitch Hedberg and George Lopez. After moving to Los Angeles, Dan won the LA Take Out Comedy Competition which led to hosting his own show “Asia Street Comedy” on AZN tv.
Dan’s comedy is PG-13. Without graphic violence or nudity, Dan casually delivers what his friends refer to as “Smart Stupid Comedy.” He is a soft sell who doesn’t beat you over the head with his material. If you like a joke, cool. If not, there’s another one coming in about 10 seconds. Dan has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, the Late Late Show and Showtime just to name a few.
Adam Hammer: A young So Cal native, Adam Hammer is currently touring the country as part of the Jo Koy tour. He has toured the country with Robert Schimmel as well as all by himself headlining clubs like Crackers, The Funnybone and Comedy Underground. His album “Almost Clean” debuted at number 20 on the iTunes comedy charts in May 2011. He was the voice of Frank the Penguin on the Good Luck Chuck DVD. He wrote and directed the YouTube hit “Backporch Wisdom” and was co-creator of the web series “Messed Up Missionaries” which was purchased by Turner and ran on SuperDeluxe.com. Based in L.A. Adam Hammer is a paid regular at the Hollywood Improv, the Icehouse, and the Comedy and Magic Club.
