Jeff Urrea: Jeffrey Urrea is a Mexican/American comedian from Southern California, whose comedy is a blend of social commentary, physical act outs and musical montages all wrapped into one hilarious act, delivering big laughs and memorable jokes! Jeff attended the University of California Santa Barbara for a degree in Film and Media Studies, and began his comedy career during college. Jeff founded and co-created a weekly stand up comedy show at UCSB called “Laughology,” which continues to run to this day. After college Jeff has become one of the most recognized names in his community of Ventura County. He was voted 2nd Best Local Comedian in the VC Reporter's Best of 2011 Survey, and was a finalist in the Ventura Comedy Festival’s 1st Annual “Funniest Person in Ventura Competition.” Jeff has performed with and opened for some of the biggest names in comedy. He regularly performs at the Ventura Harbor Comedy Club, where he has become a show producer and co-manager. Jeff has also performed at venues such as The Majestic Ventura Theater, The Coach House, The Laugh Factory, The World Famous Comedy Story, The Hollywood Improv, and Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank. He has also been heard on the Dick And Darren Comedy Podcast, and Gold Coast Broadcasting’s 105.5’s Morning show.

Chinedu Unaka: Chinedu loves entertaining. Having superstar comedians he grew up admiring share the stage with him and call him hilarious, funny, or a great writer has been one of his career highlights and a dream come true. Hailing from the Los Angeles area, this American born Nigerian is making a huge wave on the comedy scene. In addition, with his two degrees collecting dust from UCSB and LMU, he’s also a respected writer, and earth shattering youtube actor. CHINEDU has established himself as an intelligent comedic presence performing regularly at some of the country’s most renowned comedy clubs: The Hollywood Laugh Factory, The Hollywood Improv, The Comedy Store, The Comedy Union, The Jspot Comedy Club, Ventura Harbor Comedy Club, Comedy Hideaway, and Flappers just to name a few. As well as independently touring colleges nationwide annually. Most recently, Chinedu competed in NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity 2013 making it all the way past the 3rd round and waiting to hear back if he made the finals in November. In addition, he has just been confirmed to be on NUVO’s TV second season of Stand Up and Deliver Comedy Show being taped at The Hollywood Improv in September. Chinedu’s comedic talents were featured on television in his own comedy special on The Africa Channel (Time Warner), which still continually airs internationally. He has also been a featured performer of The Ventura Harbor Comedy Festival for 3 years straight and counting; performing for all of the following showcases: TV Showcase, Black Friday, International Comics, etc. Furthermore, Chinedu produces his own sell out show once a month in Los Angeles called The Comedy Kickback at Echoes Under Sunset in Echo Park and has written for 2 comedy specials on SHOWTIME. Appearing on numerous stages, Chinedu provides the audience with a fresh point of view, a welcoming persona, hilarious flips in logic, sugarless eye candy, and classic jokes that will make you want to repeat them to a group of friends the next day at work and or school or on the couch to yourself. A writer for televised comedians and viral YouTube sketch comedy groups; Chinedu has been labeled by audiences, comedians, bookers, and his mother as clever energy – with jokes that are original, universal, hysterical, and as someone who is ready for primetime. Chinedu knows what’s FUNny plain and simple; when he is performing for shows always trust you will get your money and time worth. Just give Chinedu a spotlight and a mic, and enjoy the GENIUS.   …Glad that’s over. Typing in third person has always been awkward for Chinedu, I mean for me.
