Felicia Michaels: Arriving in Hollywood with $40 dollars to her name, Felicia Michaels quickly found herself honing her comedy skillz at the Laugh Factory, Improv and Comedy Store. She was soon able to abandon her "day job" and support herself entirely via stand-up work, performing across the country on college campuses and "A-room" comedy clubs. She has appeared with her comedy on such networks as MTV, A&E, COMEDY CENTRAL, VH1 and SHOWTIME. Not to mention NBC, ABC and FOX. She soon found herself becoming a COMEDY GRAND CHAMPION on STAR SEARCH. Playing with and defying stereotypes, Michaels initially presented herself on stage as the quintessential "dumb blonde." But after several years of telling jokes in her high heels, she came to the conclusion that if she spent more time writing jokes then blow drying and maintaining her dried out blonde tresses, her new monologue would soon be filled with stronger more insightful reflections, it becomes apparent that intellect and wit are alive and well in this soft spoken talent. She is known to have raised quite a few eyebrows by refusing to allow her gender tame her material. An "Army Brat" who was used to moving about, Michaels never flinched when it came to the rigorous travel schedule that a stand-up comedy career demanded. She enjoyed the raucous laughter and the chasing of planes for tour dates, thirty-five weeks a year. Most importantly, she relished grasping for the exciting moments on stage when sharing clarity and laughter with the audience members in front of her over ideas. The 35 week a year travel schedule resulted in Felicia not only being nominated for an
AMERICAN COMEDY AWARD two years in a row, but also managing to win the award itself for FUNNIEST FEMALE. Along with doing comedy Felicia also found time to attend film school at NYU, which led her to her writing and directorial debut with the short film "In the Weeds," which received a CINE EAGLE AWARD. This led her to work as an actor, assistant director and line producer on Mitch Hedberg's film "Los Enchiladas." A passion for photography has always plagued Felicia as well, leading her to find time to teach underserved children photography along the side of many admired photographers, including Pulitzer Prize winning photographer Clarence Williams. She recently received first place at the PRIX DE LA PHOTOGRAPHIE COMPETITION in Paris, for her photo documentary project "Stand Up / Stripped Down." Her project documents the mystery of what happens backstage in the shadows that lead from the green room to the power of the stage, leading one to visually understand the loneliness and process of being a cultural whistleblower. Felicia's comedy CD’s "Lewd Awakenings" and “Chew On This” are now available on iTunes, and landed Felicia on XM Satellite’s list of top 100 jokes. You can also catch Felicia along with co-host Joey Diaz on their popular and RAW-SOME podcast, “Beauty and Da Beast.” Her very recent TV appearances include Stand Up in Stillettos, Nick’s Mom’s Night Out, and a regular on NickJr’s Parental discretion. All this, while raising two young boys as a single mother.
Megan Gailey: Megan Gailey grew up in Indianapolis, the perfect town to raise a delusional upper-middle class Midwestern socialite. With a love of flirting and vacationing, it was a natural fit to leave the monotonous exercise schedule for a life of stand-up.

Gailey recently made her late-night debut on The Conan O’Brien Show, she was a part of the 2015 Just For Laughs "New Faces", a finalist in NYC’s Laughing Devil Fest, a featured performer at the Traverse City Winter Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Festival and Comedy Expo. Megan was recently featured in Chicago Magazine and Marie Claire Magazine for her comedic risk taking and amazing dresses. And she has finally performed alongside enough famous people that her older brothers no longer hate her.

Megan just wrapped Season 1 of Ladylike for MTV and will next be seen on the upcoming season of Adam Devine’s House Party on Comedy Central.

Megan works and applies makeup at a fanatical pace. She continues to search for a rich husband, just in case.
