Laurie Kilmartin: A seasoned comic who has performed in Iraq, the UK, forty of the fifty US States, the Montreal Comedy Festival and a laundromat, her finely crafted jokes make her one of comedy's funniest women. With many TV credits as writer and performer she is currently a staff writer for "Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn."
Morgan Murphy: Morgan started making a name for herself on the LA comedy scene while still a student at Loyola Marymount University. Shortly after she graduated, she appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call w/ Carson Daly.

Kira Soltanovich: A graduate of the San Diego State University Dramatic Arts Department and with training from the American Conservatory Theatre and The Groundlings, Ms. Soltanovich is extensively trained in every aspect of writing as well. "I loved living in the dorms at college because my father never let me have slumber parties as a kid. He said sleeping on the floor and eating from cardboard boxes was the reason we left Russia."

Based on her writing and acting, she was selected to be a part of the ABC Comedy Development Showcase where she was named "Hottest new writer".
