Comedian Catfish Cooley brings high energy comedy to his southern following with a punch. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover — he’s not just a guy drinking hot sauce and chugging whiskey, he’s a real storyteller with a positive message. You may recognize him from when he was featured on Tosh.O. Sometimes compared to Larry the Cable Guy, he’s the happiest redneck SOB you ever did meet!

The Ginger Billy character is based on his father, which comes through his comedy onstage. He’s amassed hundreds of thousands of followers in less than a year.

The life of any party and a guaranteed good time, Comedian Gary Cargal is a breath of fresh air and a good, stiff drink to the comedy world. His stage performance consists of comedy about his wife and two sons. Sometimes known as Coach Croker online, his alter ego is a sports coach that gives mediocre pep talks but has high hopes for his fictitious teams. His stern and boisterous behavior are attempts to conceal the fact that he is the least athletic high-school coach.
