With wit and style A.K. Bjorn brings a critically honest take on social norms and black and white culture. Raised in the mid-west and developing his comedic style in New York, he has honed the ability to read between the lines and present a hilarious take on relationships, life in the South and current events. Look for A.K. in Atlanta’s best known comedy clubs and college campuses when he’s not on the road.
More than just a comedian, Joel Byars hosts the Funny Monkey Comedy Carnival every Wednesday at Java Monkey in Decatur. His hosting talents can also be heard on the critically acclaimed Hot Breath! podcast. Besides hosting and performing around the country, Joel also teaches a stand-up comedy class at Highwire Comedy Co. Joel Byars is a name you want to remember.
This perfect southern belle, hides hysterical dark secrets deep within her heart. Lace Larrabee weaves tales of her former beauty pageant days with raw jokes about love, family, and work place survival, and levels crowds all over the country. From A-list comedy clubs to filthy punk dive bars, Lace’s relatable brand of acerbic wit finds a home wherever working people are looking for a laugh. Lace has appeared in the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, the She Devil Comedy Festival and the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, as well as clubs across the US. In 2015 she made her television debut on Fox’s standup comedy show Laughs.
Lew Lefton likes to keep both the right and left sides of his brain working. His bread is buttered as an assistant dean in the College of Sciences and as a faculty member in the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech. But Lefton is not just your ordinary nerd. He is also an accomplished and experienced comedian who has done stand up and improv comedy for more than 30 years. His talents are perhaps best summed up by his business card which reads: Lew Lefton / Mathematician & Comedian / “He’s funny and he can prove it.”
As the world’s only stand-up comedian by night and engineering professor by day, Pete Ludovice is out to prove that nerds can be funny, and not just funny-looking. His nationally-touring one-man show “Feel the Power of the Dork Side” is a hilarious look at science and technology and their practitioners. He has appeared internationally in front of audiences at clubs, colleges, and corporate events and received the only National Science Foundation grant examining the role of humor in the engineering classroom. When not in front of his students at Georgia Tech, he hosts a weekly radio program on WREK-Atlanta, all about science and technology.
A fourth year student at Georgia Tech, Zain Sharif is also an active stand-up comedian in the Atlanta scene. He has performed with Hannibal Buress, Maz Jobrani, Craig Robinson, and many other Atlanta headliners. He writes and directs for his sketch channel, Zain Sharif Comedy, on Facebook and YouTube. Catch him at one of his frequent performances at any of Atlanta’s many comedy venues.
