For the past decade, Marion Grodin has been one of the hottest comedians in the country. She is a favorite at New York’s top clubs, including Standup NY and Gotham Comedy Club, where she regularly makes headlines. As one of the best entertainers in the country, Marion’s incredible ability to improvise has allowed her to master the art of speaking with the audience. Always ready to be as revealing as she surveys the audience, this lovingly edgy style has become Marion’s trademark. The result is a hilarious personal show that makes audiences feel like it was tailor-made just for them. Marion has toured with Linda Ronstadt, opened for Lewis Black, Judy Gold and Robert Klein, and shared the stage with Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Roseanne Barr and Robin Williams. She has performed for over 1,000 seats and for private A+ events including Gilda’s Club and Ethel Kennedy’s annual fundraisers. Marion has also been seen on The Joy Behar Show, NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien and ABC’s The View where she recently made her second appearance. Additionally, she worked as a comedy producer for the Charles Grodin show, making regular appearances on the MSNBC show, as well as doing comedy celebrity interviews. Marion also hosted her own radio show for CBS, over a two-year period, where her guests included friends, like Lisa Lampanelli, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, Kyra Sedgewick and Lewis Black.
Originally from New Jersey, Anthony DeVito is a comedian based in New York. He has appeared on CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central’s Stand Up Presents: Anthony DeVito, Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, was one of the “new faces” at the 2012 Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, has been on This American Life, AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live, and was the 2015 winner of Caroline’s March Madness. Additionally, his debut album Dream Occupation is available through Comedy Central Records. In addition to stand-up, he was a writer on Netflix’s The Break with Michelle Wolf, wrote for the 2018 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and was a regular writer/panellist on MSG’s People Talking Sports and Other Stuff. He has also appeared on TV Land’s The Jim Gaffigan Show, and is a favorite on Sirius XM’s Bennington.
While it’s often said that tragedy plus time equals comedy, you could just as well say that enthusiasm minus caution equals comedian Greg Stone. Considered by his peers to be one of New York’s funniest storytellers, Greg is a fixture at many Manhattan comedy clubs and independent shows, where he shares true stories about the ups and downs caused by his lack of inhibition. Greg has recently performed on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, TruTV’s Friends of the People and AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live. Giving in to the growing demand to be heard and not seen, Greg has also been featured on Sirius/XM Radio’s The Bennington Show, hit podcasts like Tuesdays with Stories and not-so-hit but still hilarious podcasts like The Rad Dudecast, which Greg co-hosts with Anthony DeVito and Brendan Eyre. Not bad for a guy who spends a good chunk of his free time putting action figures in his room. Ask him politely and he’ll tell you about the time he drunkenly jumped onstage with Michael Bolton.
Marla Schultz is a national headliner who has performed at top venues across the country and beyond in her career. Marla has been featured on The Oxygen Network, TNT, E! and Sirius XM to name a few. She appeared on the off-Broadway show JAPS: The Jewish American Princesses of Comedy and was a regular at Caroline’s on Broadway, Stand-Up New York, Gotham Comedy Club, The Nantucket Comedy Festival and LA Comedy Festival.
