Willie Hunter: Stand-up comedian / writer / /Talk Show host
Willie was born and raised in Alabama. He's the "oldest of five, but acted like the youngest of five," as he would put it. Willie attended Auburn University. War Eagle!
He has made name for himself as a stand-up comedian. He tells jokes that range from being intellectually surperior to his Southern comrades, to telling jokes about the societal pressures of being "normal". Certainly he's not your ordinary "black comic."
Willie also regularly hosts the 'Pot Luck 40 Comics' night at The World Famous Comedy Store (every Monday). Show starts at 7pm and goes to 2am. Willie hosts the first 4 hours of the show! In doing so he showcases his talents of wit, connection, and pure hilarity. (other famous alums of this host position: David Letterman, Jay Leno, Michael Keaton, Argus Hamilton, Steve Rannazzisi, Rick Ingraham, David Taylor, Bob Oshack, Don Barris, Frazer Smith, Jeff Danis and Ryan O'Neal, Eleanor Kerrigan, & of course Arsenio Hall to name a few.)
Willie has his own live Talk/Variety show aptly titled, "The Willie Hunter Show". The show is once a month at The World Famous Comedy Store in the Main Room. Some of the previous guests have included:
Bill Burr, Sarah Silverman, Brody Stevens, Chelsea Peretti, Jerrod Carmichael, Ian Edwards, Ari Shaffir, Sam Tripoli, Erik Griffin, Rick Shapiro, and Rick Ingraham.

Lastly, Willie Hunter has written for the TBS show Deon Cole's Black Box, and he recently wrote, created, and sold an Untitled Jerrod Carmichael pilot to NBC. And yes, his birth name is Willie, not William.
Ed Greer: Ed Greer is a seasoned staple of the Los Angeles comedy scene.
The much sought-after comedian performs at Hollywood’s hottest venues including the Improv, The
Comedy Store, and the Laugh Factory.
He has been described as fearlessly dynamic, highly original, thought-provoking and completely hilarious.
CraveOnline describes his comedy as, “all at once intelligent and approachable, egalitarian and niche.”
Adding, “Ed stands out in his delivery, which borrows equally from the college professor and the street
preacher.” The USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism says that, “his presence is one
that captivates the room.”
Greer hasn't met a crowd he didn't enjoy... or want to destroy.
