- Ali Wong is a stand-up comedian living in Los Angeles, CA. After SF Weekly selected her as “The Best Comedian of 2009″ and the SF Bay Guardian awarded her “Best of the Bay,” she decided that it was finally time to depart her hometown. Since then, Ali has performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, the FOX series “Breaking In”, E!’s “50 Super Epic TV Moments”, and can be seen in Oliver Stone’s “Savages” released September 2012. In 2010, Comedy Central listed Ali Wong as One of Seven “Comic’s to Watch.” This year, Variety Magazine named her as one of the “10 Comics to Watch” for 2011, and Ali appeared in the 2011 Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, QC. This season, you can see Ali as “Olivia” in the new NBC series based on Chelsea Handler’s memoir “Are You There Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.”
- Josh Wolf started doing comedy in Seattle 12 years ago. After moving to Los Angeles, his unique, honest and high energy style of storytelling made him an instant favorite at The Impov, The Laugh Factory and The World Famous Comedy Store. Being bit by the writing bug, Josh wrote on sitcoms for the next four years working on shows like "Yes, Dear", Will Smith's "All of Us" and "Cuts" starring Shannon Elizabeth. As he was wondering whether to go back for another season of writing, Josh decided he was tired of making other people funny and he jumped back into stand-up. He immediately got cast in Last Comic Standing and was on the season finale as one of the Last Comics Downloaded. Since then he has had acting roles on "All of Us", he has a recurring role on "My Name is Earl" and he has done several hosting gigs for E! entertainment.
Wolf is currently a regular on the hit E! series "Chelsea Lately" and is currently touring with Larry The Cable Guy and Chelsea Handler. Josh is also co-writing a feature for Sony and Happy Madison and hosts "The College Experiment," a comedic weekly online college football show for Fox Sports. This year he will be touring with "The Comedians of Chelsea Lately."
