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.
Greg Behrendt is working harder than ever! In 2009, "He's Just Not That Into", the movie based on his bestselling book, opened in theaters nationwide and was America's number one movie. Behrendt's second comedy special, "That Guy from That Thing," was released by Image Entertainment after premiering on Comedy Central. Greg hit the road with the "Greg Behrendt's Totally Into You Comedy Tour" and made his Edinburgh Festival debut at The Assembly Rooms. In 2010, Greg wrote a half hour sitcom pilot for CBS, produced and starred in "There Might Be Cake", an unscripted pilot for IFC, and performed stand-up at both the Melbourne and Montreal International Comedy Festivals, worked as a Consulting Producer on NBC's Love Bites. In 2011 Greg launched the podcast "Walking the Room" and its standup spin-off, "Starfish Circus", both of which he hosts with Dave Anthony; he also headlined an episode of John Oliver's New York Standup Show on Comedy Central, and is currently writing a pilot for AMC with Hank Azaria and Jerry Stahl.
Behrendt currently lives in LA with his wife/writing and producing partner Amiira and their two daughters.
"Brimming with a more-than-healthy dose of 'what the hell is wrong with you people?!' angst, Chris calls to mind Lewis Black's societal rants combined with Richard Pryor's deadpan delivery style. In other words, he's a true original." - Amp Magazine 2008
"Touching on topics ranging from Sept. 11 to necrophilia, Chris Cubas was obviously comfortable on the stage. Cubas kept the crowd in hysterics with a blend of taboo topics and self-depreciation." -Eric Pulsifer, Austinist.com
Henry Phillips has been seen and heard performing his twisted songs and stories on 'Comedy Central Presents', ABC's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', as well as satellite and terrestrial radio nationwide. His critically acclaimed albums, fusing mellow folk-rock ballads with psychopathic lyrics have earned him mention in Billboard magazine's 'Critic's Choice', as well as acclaim from such notable artists as Moby, who refers to Phillips' songs as "disconcertingly funny". His semi-biographical comedy film "Punching the Clown" received the Audience award at Slamdance film festival '09, and is currently available on Hulu. Amazon prime, itunes and more!

"Weinbach's comedy is about poaching characters from real life and inhabiting them that you forget who you're watching onstage."
-East Bay Express
