Chris Hardwick at Helium Comedy Club

Description: 

At one time or another you stumbled across Chris on your moving picture box in such cerebral gems as MTV’s “Singled Out” and Noam Chomsky’s “Shipmates.” He was also in House of 1000 Corpses, which you were afraid to see because horror films make you pee a little. He made an appearance in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which you may be somewhat reluctant to give me credit for, because he was only in a couple of scenes and he was not a robot.

Recently, Chris hosted “WIRED Science” and had a half-hour Comedy Central special on iTunes.

Currently, he hosts “Web Soup” and review gadgetry for “Attack of the Show,” both on the G4 Nerdwork. He also writes for Wired Magazine and provides voices for talking animals on Back at the Barnyard on Nickelodeon.

Doug Loves Movies Podcast at Helium Comedy Club

Description:  It would take too long to cite all of Doug Benson’s credits, but here’s a small sampling: He has his own documentary called Super High Me based on a joke from his standup act. It’s available on DVD! How does a little show called NBC’s Last Comic Standing grab you? Fact: he finished top six in the 2007 season, no big deal. Doug was a series regular on four seasons of VH-1’s Best Week Ever. He makes recurring appearances on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. His second Comedy Central Presents half-hour special premiered in January ’09. He had the nerve to hit on Jennifer Aniston on the classic sitcom Friends, is a character on The Sarah Silverman Program, and oops, almost forgot, got Larry David in a headlock on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. If that’s not enough for you, he’s a creator/writer/star of The Marijuana-Logues, a show that’s been a hit (small pun intended) in clubs and theatres from Los Angeles to New York – and drew a bongload of rave reviews. Now there’s a CD, also called The Marijuana-Logues, and a book, The Marijuana-Logues: Everything About Pot That We Could Remember. In 2006, High Times Magazine named him Stoner of the Year, and in 2009, he successfully made it to all the shows in his thirteen-day Medical Marijuana Tour. Now Doug has a new CD, Unbalanced Load, out on Comedy Central Records and continues to express his love of movies on his I Love Movies podcasts (available on iTunes). Enough about Doug Benson already!

Bert Kreischer at Helium Comedy Club

Description:  Growing up in Tampa, Florida Bert had no idea he wanted to be a comedian, so he spent six and a half years at Florida State University harvesting his middle class indifference. As only fate would have it, comedy found him. In 1997, Rolling Stone Magazine was looking to write an article about the number one party school in the country, so they sent contributing editor Erik Hedegard down to Tallahassee to spend a week partying. His finding was The Undergraduate, a 6 page article about one man-child, Bert Kreischer. Not only did it name Bert as the “Number One Partier in the Nation,” it set in motion his comedy career. Oliver Stone optioned the rights to his life, book deals were offered, and a local Florida radio station (having read Bert’s quip about wanting to become a comic) put together a comedy showcase with Bert as the headliner. Having never done comedy, Bert took the stage after three experienced comedians, and closed the show doing over thirty minutes of material. He was an instant success. He turned down the radio station’s offer for his own morning show and decided to move to New York to begin a career in comedy. When asked about his first year in the New York comedy circuit Bert says candidly, “I got my lunch money taken. I knew nothing about comedy and it was clear to everyone, including me.” So he did what he had never done before, he worked hard and within five months Will Smith,’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment, offered him a sitcom deal. A year later he signed his second television development deal with CBS, where he made his acting debut starring in the CBS/20th Century Fox pilot, Life with David J with Elliott Gould. Bert has also appeared on VH-1’s Nevermind the Buzzcocks, as well as host of FX’s The X-Show, and as the star of his own show Hurt Bert. Last year, Bert appeared as a contestant on the popular Comedy Central show Reality Bites Back. His new hour special, Bert Kreischer: Comfortably Dumb, premiered on Comedy Central earlier this year to rave reviews.

Jon Dore at Helium Comedy Club

Description:  Jon Dore is me. I is a relatively nice human. When I’m not out encouraging people to get along, I am at home drawing cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. Originally from Canada, I now live in Los Angeles. The days are warm, the nights are cool and there is a bar just down the street which has a happy hour. On Tuesday evenings I can watch my television show, “The Jon Dore Television Show” on IFC. I pretend that I’m not interested in watching it when friends are over, however it does bring me a genuine sense of joy and it makes me feel superior to others. Variety placed me on their “10 Comics to Watch” list. I’m a white, heterosexual male who enjoys making love to men while wearing a do-rag — provided I am not menstruating. My favorite hobby is wasting people’s time. For evidence of this please click this link.
