Alex Hooper and Chris James

Alex Hooper was sculpted in Baltimore, MD. As a troubled weirdo, he tried on many hats before realizing only comedy could tame his hair. On stage he is known for his clever writing, fearless style, rampant energy, and sickeningly positive attitude. He has appeared on America's Got Talent, Comedy Central (Roast Battle 2, Corporate), Fox's New Girl, TVLand, Nickelodeon, and most importantly, The Bad Girls Club. His 2018 Album "Hugs. Drugs. Pugs." hit #1 on Amazon and #3 on ITunes Best Selling Comedy Records. Also in 2018 his Pug Yoga Calendar was featured on The Ellen Show. Funny Or Die named him one of the 15 Funniest Comics to Follow. Good Deed Seats included him in their list of The 40 Best Up & Coming Comedians. He created CRAVE, a unique comedy and dance party experience. Named one of LA Weekly's Best of 2013, CRAVE has also been recognized by The LA Times and Thrillist.

British comedian Chris James started his career in New York after he landed a modeling contract with the top talent agency, Wilhelmina. Living in NY, he performed improvisation and one-man shows at sold out theaters including the famous New York Comedy Club. Soon thereafter, the comedy bug led him to perform internationally thus shifting to LA after getting signed for comedy management. Chris performed at all the major clubs in California including the world famous Comedy Store on Sunset Strip and The Laugh Factory. In addition to standup, he is known for his ability to portray a diverse range of characters with ease and confidence alongside his witty style of story telling. More recently, he played a guest starring role on VH1 Single Ladies as well as performing clean yet hilarious comedy at many college/corporate shows.
