Erin Jackson
Erin Jackson
Armed with a megawatt smile and a pocket full of dreams, Erin Jackson is poised to conquer the world of stand-up. In fact, she’d probably be a superstar by now if her friends and family hadn’t spent so many years hating on her dreams and stealing her joy.

Since first making a name for herself at colleges and east coast comedy clubs, Erin’s conversational style and relatable humor have helped to propel her onto the national stage. She was a semifinalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” and co-hosted three seasons of “Exhale,” a panel talk series on the ASPiRE television network.

Erin can be seen nightly in many of New York City’s top comedy clubs, and her stand-up has been featured on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” OWN’s “Wanda Sykes Presents Herlarious,” and AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live.” She’s also appeared on MSNBC, NFL Network, truTV, VH-1 and TV Guide Network as a panelist on numerous sports and pop-culture shows. A proud alumna of Howard University, Erin is obsessed with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Tom Cassidy
Tom Cassidy
Tom Cassidy is a comedian who started in Philadelphia at The Laff House Comedy Club (urban clubs spell things wrong due to the deterioration of the public school system) where he became a feature act 2 weeks before the club shut down. After spending a few years in his native land, which has produced many great comedians (Kevin Hart, Tina Fey and up until recently Bill Cosby) he moved to New York City where he performs regularly at clubs, basements and back of bars that vary in quality. He has been featured at The New York, Boston, Staten Island and Hoboken Comedy Festival (placed in the order of respect each festival gets) and has performed at colleges throughout the east coast in beautiful theaters and fluorescent cafeteria's. In addition to performing literally wherever will have him Tom is also a writer who has directed several sketches and short films, including "Babe Ruth Time Traveler" and it's sequel (you can guess what it's called). Tom is also a co-host on the Center City Comedy podcast where he can be found arguing and making fun of his friends on a weekly basis.
Heather Candella
Heather Candella
Heather Candella is a writer, producer, and standup comedian who hails from Rockland County, NY. She has a blog that she promises herself she’ll get better at updating, once she’s done working on the short story that she’s also been procrastinating on. She also tweets a bunch of stuff here on a more regular basis, and is a contributing columnist for More Than Jokes. Heather’s writing credits include winning a $50 savings bond in the Sloatsburg Elementary School writing contest “What My Flag Means to Me," as well as wrote, produced, and starred in her DARE graduation play.

Heather Candella is very active in the NYC and Hudson Valley comedy scene, performing at such venues as Broadway Comedy Club, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Levity Live, among others. Heather once riffed with Tracy Morgan in a Sunoco station off of the Palisades Parkway about the Kardashians, where he then showed her the new Rolls Royce he just purchased. She also quite literally ran into Colin Quinn on the street once.
