Shaun Eli has been called one of the smartest comics in the country by Reader's Digest. His clean, clever comedy is featured on Sirius XM Satellite Radio and he has been profiled on CBS Radio Business News. He is also a frequent contributor to the opening monologue of Tonight Show’s host Jay Leno, who has cited one of Shaun's jokes as an example of the type of "smart comedy" which he's happy to include in his opening monologue. You can find Shaun's jokes, stand-up video, comedic essays and biography on his web site www.BrainChampagne.com, where his slogan "Brain Champagne: Clever Comedy for Smart Minds " rings true.
Dan Naturman began performing stand-up comedy several years ago in, believe it or not, law school. After graduation he decided to devote himself to stand-up full time. Dan's charming combination of self-deprecation and outright grouchiness has had audiences howling from coast to coast and has earned him spots on The Tonight Show, Late Show with David Letterman and The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson as well as his own Comedy Central Presents special.
Myq Kaplan (pronounced “Mike Kaplan”) made his network television debut on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and has since gone on to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson and in his own half-hour Comedy Central Presents: Myq Kaplan special. Most recently, he was a Top 5 finalist on the most recent season of Last Comic Standing. For more bragging, check out www.myqkaplan.com, or ask his grandmother.
Joe DeVito will bring his talents to Sag Harbor. After spending a decade as a journalist and advertising writer, Joe gave into his coworker's demands to try performing so he could find fame, while they finally got some work done. Joe's TV appearances include The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central's Live at Gotham, and a semi-finalist turn on season five of Last Comic Standing. His savage wit has also made him an in-demand panelist on shows like Chelsea Lately, CNN's Headline News, Animal Planet's Wild 100, and a regular guest on Red Eye.
