She studied Theater at USC and got involved with Improv Comedy after graduating. Kristina studied at The Upright Citizens Brigade, The Groundlings, LA Comedy Connection, and Anthony Meindl's Actors Workshop. In recent months she's taken her career into her own hands and started writing, editing, producing, and starring in her own comedy skits on YouTube and Funny or Die.

Stay Funny People.
Born in Cairo, Egypt Tamer Kattan felt like he moved to the future when he left a 3rd world Islamic country for liberal and sunny California. Every city had a mall. Every home had a color TV and every woman had...a face.
Having an afro, an accent and sweaters with elbow patches made Tamer an easy target for bullying and THAT is where he first discovered comedy. At the ripe old age of 7 he started performing stand up for his class mates.
Having an abusive father gave him the ability to take a bullies punch, but the bullies couldn't take it when Tamer retaliated the only way he knew how: by making them the subjects of his school yard stand up routines.
The day that one bullied begged: "Dude, please stop making fun of me and I promise to stop beating you up." was the day Tamer knew comedy was powerful stuff.
2010 marked the first year that Tamer decided to pursue his passion and he's been on fire ever since. He's a regular at The Comedy Store and performs all over town at the Improv, HaHa Cafe, Ice House, etc...Headlining is in his near future.
Find his latest stand up on YouTube: "Tamer Kattan @ the HaHa Cafe" or his pee your pants status updates on Facebook. He loves making friends with people that don't hit him in the face.

Zack Beseda was born at a young age in Waco, Texas where he basically played video games throughout his formative years. In high school, Zack excelled in English, lunch and faking enthusiasm during football practices. After coming to the conclusion that a career as a professional wrestler probably wasn’t going to pan out he enrolled the University of North Texas as a film major. While there, he wrote and performed in the award-winning cult series Deadly Cinema, a mash-up of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Elvira: Mistress of the Dark.
Zack then moved to Los Angeles where he acts, writes and performs stand-up. His biggest role to date is the Sci Fi Channel “movie” The War of the Worlds 2: The Next Wave directed by stalwart 80s icon, C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders, Red Dawn, Soul Man). Amidst the media whirlwind surrounding the premier of WW2TNW (as it‘s known by fans), Zack could be found between Adrienne Barbeau and Jonathan Frakes on the list of Internet Movie DataBase’s most popular actors.
In 2011, Zack has appeared in several indie features, short films, and, if you pause it at the right moment, an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. He performs stand-up all over Los Angeles and recently received his first jury summons. He has written two comedy pilots, a feature and half-written many more.
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Brenda Lamberty arrived in sunny CA at the age of 21. For nine years she traveled all around the state performing in many theater houses. Three years ago she discovered her passion for Stand up comedy and siced then she has performed in many clubs around Los Angeles, including The Laugh Factory, The Comedy Union, Ice House Annex, The Improv and her favorite place to perform The Downtow Comedy Club where she is a regular. Her acting career continues to grow, she has appeared in shows like Reality Hell and recently shot a webisode for the company dumbdumb.com produced and staring Jason Batedman. She is excited to be a part of What's so funny, and hopes her 2 fans get to hear it!
Thank you very much,
Jackie Gold is a very smart & successful comedienne out in here in the Los Angeles area, originally from New York, she's arrived to bring joy and laughter and a bit of ball busting to Hollywood. Check out this interview I did with her on intraffik.com after you listen to the show!
Jonny Loquasto began life in a lovely town called Northampton, Pennsylvania. He ate chicken fingers, french fries & tartar sauce nonstop as a young kid & took the crown as Prince Chubby aka the Funny Fat Kid. Don't ever tell him that Long John Silvers isn't a 5 star restaurant. Eventually becoming obsessed with sports, JL convinced himself that he was the next Charles Barkley.
After promptly getting cut from his highschool basketball team every single year, Jonny went onto the University of Sciences in Philadelphia and somehow played Division II College Basketball. By "played" that basically means he sat on the end of the bench, talked trash, and would occasionally play once the team was winning or losing by 25 points. J-Loq achieved a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy and moved out to Orange County, CA because he had never seen actual breast implants in person. 6 months into his OC arrival, he convinced himself that he was still a funny fat kid and was determined to make a career entertaining others. Since then JL has become the face of CBS Sports Mobile & CBS Mobile's Comedy Channel, written 2 sitcom pilots, and he now his own show at the Brea & Irvine Improv titled "Last Call Comedy".
So go check out www.JLoComedy.com, where you can enjoy his writing, acting, and live comedy shows. And if you happen to hurt yourself while laughing, he can fix any injuries you might endure. Thanks for checking out JLoComedy.com!!
