Ramin Nazer

Ramin is a stand-up comic who has distinguished himself with inventive joke-writing chops and an absurdist non sequitur style. He will be performing a fast-paced stand-up set that has consistently proven to surprise crowds of all types.

Ramin's got a very distinct style - his jokes are clever and delivered in a sometimes meta, sometimes tongue-in-cheek manner.

He has performed at SXSW, 3 Degrees, and has made multiple appearances at the Out of Bounds Festival. He placed 2nd in both the Funniest Person in Austin contest and Funniest Person in South Texas contest in 2010. Ramin has been featured in the Austin Chronicle, The Onion's A.V. Club, and IFC.


Andy Ritchie

Originally born in Canada, the Minneapolis raised comedian first cut his teeth in the local improvisational scene. Switching his focus to stand-up and his location to Los Angeles, Esquire reporter Colby Buzzell described Ritchie's material from one of his many Comedy Death Ray performances as "' one of the funniest jokes I'd ever heard" in his feature for the 2006 Best and Brightest issue. Ritchie left Los Angeles in 2008 to continue his work in clubs and colleges where he has been met with enthusiastic crowd responses and critical acclaim. 2009 saw Ritchie perform at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal where his New Faces performance was recognized as one of only four "Standouts" in the festival by Time Out New York. Ritchie can be recognized from his work on Fox Sports Network's Softball 360, and he also made his debut on Comedy Central with a 2009 performance on Live at Gotham. In 2010, CMT made Ritchie a featured performer in the 2010 Next Biggest Comic Contest. Ritchie can be seen in clubs across the country and currently resides in Austin, Texas where he recently won the 2011 Funniest Person in Austin Contest.
