Nore Davis has reoccurring shows at Caroline's On Broadway, Comic Strip Live, New York Comedy Club, HA Comedy Club and Broadway Comedy Club, and a feature spot on MTV's hit show "Yo Momma."
Erick James is a comedian, actor and magician. This former college hockey player and engineer approaches comedy from both an analytical and a childlike point of view.
He started doing stand up after realizing he didn't do well in captivity. Now James features at clubs across the Northeast as well as working colleges and corporate functions. He opened for Dave Attell's Insomniac Tour when it stopped in Albany and has worked several times with the Killers of Comedy, including at Caroline's in New York City.
James is also a co-creator and producer of "Laughs and Latte" - a comedy series designed for and performed in coffee houses around the northeast and he is a co-creator/performer in the comedy/magic duo Departures.
As an actor, he has played a range of roles including playing a shy geek in "The List" - a pilot for MTV; playing the lead antagonist in "American General," an upcoming PBS dramatization on the life of Benedict Arnold; and playing a suicidal inmate for a NYS Correctional Facilities training video.
He has starred in several television commercials including MVP Healthcare's Fall enrollment campaign, and New York State OTB's Capital Cash campaign.
Ben Kronberg has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly. He has also appeared twice on ABC's hit game show, "Wipeout," one time as a normal contestant and most recently in the All-Star Episode. He lost both times, but would still go back for a third helping of pain if asked. Kronber currently resides in Los Angeles where he creates original content for the Web and is starring in a stand-up comedy-based pilot that is currently in production. He hopes writing about it doesn't jinx it.
