Sam Morril
Sam Morril
Sam Morril, one of the fastest-rising stand-up comics in New York City, is also one of the best joke writers in the scene today. How do you know that’s true? Because he is writing this bio, and he wouldn’t lie about that to get extra work.

In 2011, Sam won The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival in Atlanta and was named one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch.” More recently, Sam has been seen on Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and “Conan” on TBS for multiple appearances.

He’s also been on Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, @Midnight, and Inside Amy Schumer. Sam recorded his debut album on Comedy Central records, which went to #1 on iTunes and made numerous top 10 lists. He also released his very own half-hour Comedy Central special.

Sam is currently hosting his very own show on MSG called “People Talking Sports” Monday-Thursday at 11PM, and each episode is uploaded to YouTube because I know you’re all too cheap to pay for cable.

Sam also just finished taping his first hour special on Comedy Central — it’ll be premiered this year in 2018, so be on the lookout!

You can see Sam regularly at The Comedy Cellar in New York City, and some other clubs. He even pops into those pretentious indy hipster shows, and is regularly on the road hitting new cities.

Now is your chance to see Sam. Do it soon before you catch swine flu or something. It’s out there!
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).
