Jay Deep is a favorite performer throughout the Midwest and abroad after bursting onto the Chicago comedy scene in 1994. He has performed nationally in major cities which include Las Vegas, New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Detroit, St. Louis, and Miami; as well as internationally in Amsterdam, Belgium, Rotterdam, London, Montreal, and Toronto to name a few. He effortlessly adapts to his audience and masterfully blends his comic timing with audience participation. His success in standup brought Hollywood knocking, landing him cameo appearances in MGM Pictures Barbershop 1 and 2, Paramount’s “light it Up”, eight seasons of BET’s “ComicView”, (including a half-hour grandstand) as well as performing on HBO’s Bad Boys of Comedy. In addition to performing in front of the camera, he is also active off camera working on videos and short films as a writer and director. Jay currently resides in Chicago and believes, “Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person we become. At the end of each day, you should play back your performances. The results should either “applaud you or prod you.”
Blowing in from the Windy City, comedian, actor, director and producer B. Cole has spent the past decade molding himself as one of this generations’ greatest entertainers. Starting his career at a young age, B. Cole has performed at clubs and colleges all over the United States. He made his television debut at the age of twenty on BET’s Comic View and reached a pinnacle when he was awarded his own one-hour Grandstand Special on the program. He was a founding member of The Second City’s first urban sketch comedy ensemble Forgotten City. B. Cole has captured audiences across the country with his original side-splitting, thought-provoking material. He has toured U.S. military bases throughout Japan and here in the states. His internationally acclaimed signature comical piece, “I’m in Love with a Crack Head,” a satirical love poem, inspired him to develop the concept into a short film. In 2011, B traveled the country on a two man improv comedy club tour with actor/comic personality DeRay Davis. In 2002, he wrote and starred in his first feature length film, A Get2gether. A Get2Gether has been showcased nationwide in several festivals and it won Best Independent Film at the 2005 Chicago Comedy Awards. In the same year, B. Cole was also awarded the Robert Townsend Award for his sketch comedy show The B. Cole Show. In 2002, one of B. Cole’s biggest accomplishments was when he was invited to share the stage with musical genius Prince, accompanied by Common and Macy Gray! There’s no slowing down for the multi-talented artist as he continues to write and produce timeless comedy for the big screen. It’s a Cole world… supply your own heat!
