Joe Bartnick
Joe Bartnick
Joe Bartnick is a triple threat stand up comic, writer, and actor. He was born and raised in the City of Champions, Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh taught him how to eat, drink, and get out. Bartnick started doing stand up in San Francisco. Comedy has taken Bartnick from coffee shops and laundromats to the Punchline and places like the Warfield, Nokia Theatre LA Live, the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts, and the Grand Ole Opry.

As a writer, Bartnick has written for the Grammy Award nominated "Queen of Mean," Lisa Lampanelli, and several other comics. He was a supervising producer on Dogg After Dark. As an actor, Bartnick was in National Lampoon's Dirty Movie and plays Vinny on Playboy TV's King of Clubs.

Bartnick's knowledge and love of sports has made him a regular guest on sports radio around the country.

Bartnick's comedy is not dirty, but morally corrupt. Bill Burr called Bartnick, "mellow and loud," because his easygoing style belies his razor-sharp tongue.

Bartnick can be seen on the Discovery Channel roasting Tommy Lee and can be heard on National Lampoon Radio, Playboy Radio, and KLAS FM Los Angeles. Bartnick performed on the Comedy Central Live tour, Dave Attell's Insomniac Tour Uncensored!, the San Francisco Sketch Comedy Festival, and the LA Comedy Fest.

Bartnick's impeccable joke writing landed him the gig of Lisa Lampanelli, the "Queen of Mean's" head writer, including her Comedy Central and Howard Stern roasts, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, print interviews, and her "Ask Lisa" column. Bartnick also wrote for The Ian Bagg Show, The Bob & Tom Show, Comedy Time, and Dogg after Dark with Snoop Dogg himself.

Bartnick can be seen in the films Dirty Movie, What Dreams May Come, The Last Hurrah, and various viral videos channeling his natural abilities as a tough guy.
Regina DeCicco
Regina DeCicco
You will often hear Regina long before you see her. Before taking the plunge into stand-up comedy, Regina worked for many seasons behind the scenes at Saturday Night Live (yes, it’s as awesome as you think it is), and then Whoopi, Whoopi Goldberg’s NBC sitcom (Whoopi is as cool as they come). Regina made her television debut on AXS-TV's "Gotham Comedy Live" (I did this 4 days after my wedding, because when you have the best week, you want to make sure it’s the best week ever). Her stand-up has been featured numerous times on FOX TV's "Laughs." She recently had a great time appearing on the The Dr. Oz Show as herself (but I can't share that clip - thank you, copyright infringement!). She’s performed at colleges all over the United States, and she’s even done comedy in Shanghai, China (I did a show during our honeymoon, because why not?) She’s been a part of the Nantucket Comedy Festival, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, and Boston’s Women in Comedy Festival.

Regina's original musical comedy will make it's world premiere at Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Pennsylvania in November 2017. The New World has been an incredible experience with an extremely talented creative team comprised of Regina, her writing partner L.F. Turner, and the song and lyrics team of Gary Adler (Altar Boyz) and Phoebe Kreutz. Stafford Arima (Allegiance) has signed on as Director, and Lorin Latarro (Waitress) will choreograph. Regina is also a member of the Dramatists Guild of America.

In 2012, Regina was crowned the new winner in the Ladies of Laughter competition, thereby joining the ranks of the many fabulous female comics who came before her. She was a Semi-Finalist in the 2012 She-Devil Comedy Festival in NYC. Regina was voted Lower Hudson Valley’s Funniest Person in 2011 (I still hope to challenge the Upper Hudson Valley’s Funniest Person). She filmed a "Mom Match" sketch for Nick Mom which aired on Nick Jr. (I played a mom, but I’m not a mom - acting!) You can also find her performing all over the country with The Italian Chicks in a two hour casino style and variety show.

Regina cultivated her stage presence and discovered her love of physical comedy while studying at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade (UCB) Theatre in NYC and later performed, wrote and filmed sketches with her all female group Candy Slice.

Regina happily shares her ever evolving story of being a woman in comedy. As a graduate of Barnard College, she was asked to return as the keynote speaker for their Senior Class Dinner (this was a great honor).

In April 2016, Regina was thrilled to become a member of the legendary Friars Club (The history of the club is amazing, and the members make my 98 year old Grandpa feel young - I love it there too).

Plumb's confrontational style has made him a favorite throughout New England and beyond. He performed at the Dallas Comedy Festival and was a semi-finalist at the Last Comix Standing contest at Foxwoods Casino. He's played The Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, and NYC’s Greenwich Village Comedy Club.
