Comedian Jason Leong has a unique backstory as he is a doctor turned stand-up comic. His humour stems from his observing Malaysian society and its many quirks. Below are some snippets from his stand-out shows that display his standout comedy routines, ranging from mildly "insensitive" to explicit. Jason Leong only recently exploded on the global comedy scene in the past few years after winning the 7th Annual International Hong Kong Comedy Festival. He then became the first Malaysian to perform a full professional set at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, USA and Gotham Comedy Club in New York. This allowed him to not only gain more relevancy in Malaysia but on foreign shores as well.

Courtney Bee is a star on the New York City comedy scene. With her rich experiences developed in her hometown of Detroit Michigan, her hilarious wit, aggressive punch lines and every day observations keep audiences laughing and entertained around the country. Participating in comedy festivals such as the Black Women in Comedy and the Black Girl Giggles and Rhode Island Comedy Festivals she also opens up for Michael Che. Having been featured in national commercials and campaigns, Courtney is a rising comedic presence ready for her next big opportunity.

Chase DuRousseau is from Houston, TX. After winning Houston’s Funniest Person in 2008, he performed comedy overseas for the U.S. military in Iraq & Kuwait. He schmoozed his way to performing at The Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, The Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, The New York Comedy Festival, Gilda’s Laugh Fest, Oddball Comedy Fest, Aspen Laugh Fest, and Come And Take It. He’s featured for Craig Robinson, Ali Wong and Ali Siddiq. Recently, he was the feature act for Jo Koy on his world tour in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, England, Amsterdam, Malaysia, Norway, Sweden, Singapore, Belgium, The Netherlands, Japan, The Philippines and of course, Canada (hence all those Canadian comedy festivals, see what we did there). A regular at Dynasty Typewriter, the Hollywood Improv, and the Houston Improv, he now lives in New York City, which is honestly the best place for a guy that loves talking to strangers and/or their dogs.

Fabrizio Copano is one of the most well-known comedians in Latin America, and is the first South American comedian to shoot an original comedy special for Netflix. Actor and writer of the hit Chilean comedy show “El Club de la Comedia”, Copano also lead his own late night show “El Late de Copano”.

Matthew is 23 years old and from Chicago, where he grew up just 5 minutes away from The Second City. He graduated from New York University’s Gallatin School in May of 2020. Matthew’s love of comedy and entertainment began when he was four years old after he discovered the Austin Powers DVD in his house. He watched it so much that he began to mimic the characters’ gestures and words. “Do I make you randy?” echoed through his head every day. Matthew quickly found that he was able to make people laugh just by reproducing someone else’s persona. He spent countless hours in his room, scrolling through YouTube, digging up Johnny Carson, Howard Stern, Don Rickles, Frank Sinatra, and Rich Little clips. During COVID Matthew grew his social media platforms (TikTok over 335K followers) which has resulted in several TV spots. He was a guest on The Today Show in July 2020, and his impressions were featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live as well. Matthew has also been a guest on NBC’s New York Live TV, Good Day LA, Good Day NY, and more. Matthew won the 2019 Kenan Thompson Ultimate Comedy Experience at Carolines on Broadway, was a host on HQ Trivia’s Game HQX, and performs stand-up comedy throughout New York City. He can do over 250 impressions ranging from Rami Malek to Barack Obama to Johnny Carson. He was named by Thrillist as one of the best celebrity impressionists on TikTok.
