Crystal Lowery studied writing at The Second City. She is a contributor to SciQ, a comedy/news TV pilot on the TYT network, as well as The Huffington Post, The Today Show Parents, Scary Mommy, and other popular humor websites where many of her articles have gone viral. She writes and performs standup and sketch at clubs in Dallas and was a finalist for NBC's Late Night Writer's Workshop.

Brandon Davidson is a stand-up comedian from Arkansas now living in Texas. Brandon’s comedy is based on his experience as a father, husband, and recovering redneck. He's a regular in clubs, casinos, and colleges across the South. He believes that the movie Roadhouse is criminally underrated. He once used the restroom next to former President Bill Clinton at a movie theater during a showing of Encino Man.

Wes Corwin is a ball of pure nervous energy trying to pass itself off as human. Corwin has had his unique brand of humor featured on Cracked.com and Funny or Die. As a stand-up, he has opened for nationally touring headliners like Aparna Nancherla, Godfrey, and Kurt Braunohler. He has been featured at the Altercation Comedy Festival in Austin, Memphis Comedy Festival, and, for the past two years, the Dallas Comedy Festival.
