Affectionately dubbed “one of LA’s best kept secrets”, Myke Wright is quickly making a name for himself in the Los Angeles comedy scene. The Detroit native’s unique and thought provoking brand of comedy accompanied with his charismatic demeanor makes him a crowd favorite every time.
He has performed as one of the headliners at the Ventura Comedy Festival and Black Box Comedy Festival in Atlanta. A regular in the L.A. comedy scene, and a semi-finalist at NBC-Universal’s Stand-Up for Diversity Showcase.
Terrence Newman is a stand-up comedian and writer from Los Angeles, CA. His unique delivery and perspective has made him one of the quickly rising comics in the LA stand-up scene. He’s the booker and producer of The Parlor Social, a weekly stand up show that features some of the best and brightest talent LA has to offer. He performs regularly all over California in clubs such as The Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, The Federal Bar, Hollywood Studio Bar and Grill, Wharf Comedy Room (San Francisco), Original Mike’s (Santa Ana), and Westside Bar and Grill (Costa Mesa). He is currently in the pre-production phase of filming The Mix Tape, a collection of short comedy sketches that he wrote and is directing.
Born on the most modestly rough streets of Long Beach, CA or the “LBC” ,which is what Snoop Dogg calls it. On that same note, Snoop Dogg and Sam Jae share the same birthday. So if so facto, Sam Jae and Snoop Dogg are two of the most realist people alive. I can guarantee one thing and one thing only, Sam Jae will keep it real. And yes he finally moved out of his Mom’s house.
