J Chris Newberg: J. Chris Newberg's refreshingly smart and edgy humor, delivered with a streetwise sense of philosophic cool, has propelled the guitarist/songwriter-cum-comedian to the forefront of the National comedy scene.
While critics have been singing his praises in the press, audience members are offering true testimonial to Newberg's talent, roaring with laughter and clamoring for more of this hip and authentic new personality. Newberg's standup comedy cleverly combines his hilarious and off-beat observations on life with original, acoustic guitar songs and infectious melodies. Picture Bob Dylan and his six-string with Dennis Miller's incisive, cerebral wit. Well, not quite Dennis Miller, but definitely the occasional big word. Got it? Good, now you can begin to glimpse the unique, side-splitting talent that is J. Chris Newberg.
Newberg has spent much of adult life on the road. Whether it was performing in a bar just shy of capacity (See: Empty) or to his eventual gathering and collecting members of The Chris Army, his loyal fans. This initially began while he was touring and performing with the likes of the Counting Crows, Oasis , and John Mellencamp, but has since grown much larger through his undeniable Viral Video following. With his friends at comedy.com, J Chris has written and produced several short humorous videos that have received well over 7 million views. See for yourself. Just go to Youtube.com/jchrisnewberg, Break.com, Funnyordie.com, collegehumor.com, myspace.com/jchrisnewberg, jchrisnewberg.com or comedy.com and search his name. Make sure that you have some time, because there is a lot of stuff on there.
Newberg has been seen on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing, The History Channel, Fox Sports and countless national commercials and voice over spots.
Hampton Yount: I was born in Virginia, started comedy in DC, aged four years, and now live in Los Angeles. I won the DC Improv Comedy Competition in 2008 and other lesser important comedy contests in VA. I soon made a name for myself as the premiere contest winner and cheater of DC. I am very proud of the peer group I started out with in DC and think they will all be comedy heros! You must feel foolish for not having seen them. I've been invited to the Bridgetown Comedy Festival twice now and picked out of 600 hundred comics to compete in the Laughing Skull Festival where I made it to the semi-finals.
The webcomic that I make with my brother Clay Yount www.robandelliot.com has an awesome fanbase and has been a critics' favorite on occasion. We've been doing it for 6 years. If it were a child it would finally be of the age to realize the world is fucked up.
