JAY NOG is a former elementary school teacher and has been entertaining audiences with his rambunctious stand-up comedy since 2004. At first Nog appears scruffy and blunt, but audiences quickly discover his soft side and feel at home with his playful sarcasm. Nog has been featured on MTV, MLB Network, in Talent in Motion magazine as one of NYC’s “top up-and-coming comics”, Nat Geo’s Brain Games, MSG Network, and as a guest host on AMC’s “Movie Date Night”. He was a writer for MTV2’s Guy Code, performed at SXSW, The Apollo Theatre, featured on AOL sports show 2 Point Lead, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and is the man behind the viral video 5 Hours Walking around NYC as a Jets Fan. He is the host of the popular show PAID or PAIN heard Friday Nights on Sirius XM’s Raw Dog Channel and recently released his debut album “Put Me In Coach” with Comedy Dynamics.
John Moses has been delightfully offending audiences throughout the United States, Canada and the U.K. for more than 15 years. In 2017, John was a finalist at the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and is a favorite at festivals all over including; The Boston Comedy Festival; The Cottage Country Comedy Festival; and the Dark Comedy Festival in Toronto where he roasted Porn Legend Ron Jeremy. John released his debut album On The Edge in 2012. It was voted one of Laughspin.com’s “10 Best Comedy Albums of 2012,” and given their dubious distinction as “The One Album From 2012 You Should Get By A Comedian You Probably Never Heard Of.” It is still in regular rotation on RawDog, The Foxxhole and Canada Laughs on SiriusXM
John made his television debut in 2013, and became an immediate favorite on AXS.TV’s Gotham Comedy Live and was featured in their special “Best of Season One.” In 2015 he made his second appearance on Gotham Comedy Live and received high praise from the show’s host, the iconic Dom Irrera. In 2016 he made his third appearance on the show. He released his second album Upper Middle Trash in May of 2016. Raw Dog on SiriusXM named that album one of the best albums of 2016.
J-L Cauvin began his stand-up career in Washington DC in 2003 as a law student at Georgetown University Law Center. Upon graduating law school in 2004, without honors, he went to work as an Assistant DA in the Bronx, all the while working on his stand-up at nights in NYC. Impressing fellow open mic comedians with his suits and health insurance (pre-Obamacare) he quickly rose through the ranks of the New York Comedy scene. J-L began hitting the road once he left the law in 2009 and has toured all over the country performing at most of America’s comedy clubs, bars and taco restaurants. He has also made a name for himself as a talented impressionist with viral videos of Louis CK and Donald Trump among his YouTube hits. He was the co-host of Investigation Discovery’s “Dumb In the First Degree” web series and his most recent album Israeli Tortoise hit #1 on the iTunes comedy charts in 2016. He is currently a regular on The Adam Carolla Show and has performed stand up on The Late Late Show and Comics Unleashed.
