Review for Noah Gardenswartz; 

Mr. Gardenswartz emerged from Atlanta’s comedy scene with a laid-back delivery and mischievous perspective that have made him one of the freshest guilty pleasures in stand-up. Described as a cultural mix between Woody Allen and Wu-Tang, his intelligent writing, playfulness and unapologetically raw subject matter have left audiences entertained. Aside from performing at festivals, colleges and clubs, his credits include Super Deluxe’s FarkTV, TBS’ Today’s Riff, Comcast’s King David’s of Comedy, the independent film Slice, and Another Comedy Podcast.

Review for Ryan Dalton:

Mr. Dalton is out of Cleveland, Oh.  Mr. Dalton's comedy has led him to regular appearances in the country's best comedy clubs.  Mr. Dalton is a regular on the Bob and Tom Radio Show. He has been recognized as one of MySpace’s Featured Comedians.  In 2011, Mr. Dalton made his first USO tour of Qatar and Afghanistan. He made his television debut on the third season of Comedy Central's LIVE AT GOTHAM. Mr. Dalton wrote for Comedy Central’s Roast of Charlie Sheen in 2011
