Born in Long Island, Gregg Rogell quickly rose through the club ranks and established himself as one of the top working stand ups in the country. Within a year of his debut, Rogell won "The funniest person in Long Island" contest, as well as the WKGR South Florida Laugh Off. Within three years, his list of television credits included "Evening at the Improv," "Caroline's Comedy Hour," "The MTV Half Hour Comedy Hour," "Comic Strip Live," "VH1 Stand Up Spotlight," "E! Stand Up Sit Down with Robert Klein," "Two Drink Minimum," and many others. He has since made several appearances on "The Tonight Show," and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien." He can also be recognized from his appearance as "Kenny" on the CBS sitcom, "The Nanny." His success has earned him sitcom development deals from NBC and Disney. He has toured, opening for Dolly Parton, Wynonna Judd, and Dave Chappelle, and has appeared with Bob Hope and Bill Cosby on several NBC specials.
In 1999, Gregg won Backstage Magazine's "Bistro Award" for "Best Comedy Performer." In 2002 he entertained the troops at Guantanamo Bay on "Comedy Central's USO Comedy Tour". He also taped his own half hour special for "Comedy Central Presents," and in 2005 made his third appearance at the Gala, in "The Montreal Comedy Festival."
Gregg performs regularly at all the New York City comedy clubs and tours nationally as a headliner at clubs, colleges, corporate and charity events. He also performs in Europe, where he has appeared on several popular television programs. He recently completed a documentary with the BBC in association with Comedy Central, and in 2005 was one of the featured performers in the critically acclaimed film "The Aristocrats."
Brooklyn Native, Dwayne Perkins is a young vet in the Comedy game. With appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show, and Premium Blend, Dwayne has earned a spot in today’s class of elite Stand-up Comics. Dwayne is a regular crowd pleaser in New York, Boston and Los Angeles. The recent culmination of Dwayne’s talent and work has resulted in his very own Comedy Central Presents half hour special. The very well received special showcases Dwayne’s unique way of looking at life and unparalleled ability to convey it in a hilarious manner. In many ways still a newbie himself, Dwayne is already inspiring newer comics. With his comedy well grounded and still growing, Dwayne now sets his sights on acting and writing. Look for Dwayne in the HBO movie The Gristle, but don’t look away or you might miss him. Still, Dwayne offers a very memorable cameo as the lost “stereotype” in the bar scene. Catch Dwayne on The Learning Channel teaching a Seattle fireman a thing or two about comedy on the show Faking It. Dwayne’s comedic instincts and acting skill shine through in the soon to be released independent film Target Audience 9.1. In a movie rich with talent, where Breakfast Club meets Night of the Last Comet, Dwayne offers much comic relief as the funny likeable geek. Lastly, don’t Tivo out those commercials as you never know when Dwayne will pop up in an ad pushing products for The Man.
