THE GUEST LIST - Live TV Taping! Presented by Seeso
The Guest List, available as an audio series on Audible Channels and as a television series on Seeso, features some of today’s best stand-ups performing in front of an invite-only audience. And now we’re back for more in season two, with the first ever Sketchfest series being produced for TV! Every lineup is stacked with amazing standups, and this will be an unprecedented party. There are eight amazing shows to choose from, but you can’t get into The Guest List unless you’re on the guest list – so get your tickets while they’re still available.
Mike Drucker started doing comedy on a rainy February afternoon after spending months recording himself in his sad little NYU dorm. Not being as terrible as he thought, he continued to hit open-mics and was soon a regular at clubs around New York City. Within a year, he was performing at colleges and national comedy competitions, and was a finalist in Disney’s “So You Think You’re Funny” contest and the runner up for the title of Philadelphia’s Funniest. Since then, he has performed in comedy festivals across the country including the Boston Comedy Festival, Seattle International Comedy Competition, New Orleans Comedy Festival, New York Underground Comedy Festival, and more.
With his sharp jokes and unusual topics, Mike has been lucky enough to write for places including Saturday Night Live, The Onion newspaper, The Onion News Network on Comedy Central, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, McSweeney’s, Nintendo, College Humor, The ESPY Awards, and the PBS Mark Twain Awards (TBS). His writing on and off television has been featured in Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, and was nominated for Time Out New York’s Joke of the Year.
He has also appeared on television on ESPN, Comedy Central’s The Watchlist, Saturday Night Live, and a segment on comedy on Inside The NFL.

Jackie Kashian's comedy is like listening to a really racy episode of All Things Considered. She is a national touring comic with a new hour standup special "This Will Make an Excellent Horcrux." It is available digitally or on CD or DVD. It's also available for $5 download on www.allthingsrecords.com. She recently made her late night comedy debut on the Conan O'Brien show, has her own half hour special on Comedy Central, was a semi-finalist on Last Comic Standing and has recorded This American Life with Ira Glass for NPR.

Jay grew up with a bunch of old people in Stoneham, MA and now splits his time between Brooklyn and Los Angeles. While he is awake he is usually telling jokes to other human beings, sometimes they are in the form of an audience, sometimes they are just random people on the street and sometimes they are sitting on the couch watching TV. Yeah, Jay has been on TV before! Comedy Central, The Late Late show, Last Comic Standing, and selling products for companies. Currently Jay spends his time touring the country, writing short films for ATOM.com and working on writing projects for other comedians as well as himself. He is also very busy trying to get "alot" made into it's own word because he thinks that "a lot" is just one step too many, patenting his invention "Severity Breaklights" and trying to get on the LPGA tour. It seems like he is doing a lot, and he is but he always has time for his fans! Drop him a line on his website, www.whoisjaylarson.com or his Facebook, or his house. Jay is also a great letter writer and thinks it's a lost art form so feel free to send him a personal letter and he is sure to send one back! Jay says bye for now, "Man he is pushy!"
