He co-produced and wrote for Big Mouth and The Other Two and as an actor has appeared on Shrill, Search Party, and Sunnyside. In 2022, he wrote, produced, and starred in the Hulu romantic comedy Fire Island, a modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice with a main cast of Asian American actors. Joel was named one of the TIME100 Next 2022 as an emerging advocate and creative and a Variety Screenwriter to Watch (2022). He has also been recognized as one of The Queer Young Comics Redefining American Humor by the New York Times. His first hour-long comedy special for Netflix, called Psychosexual, was nominated for a Critics Choice Award and named one of the best comedy specials of 2022 by Variety.
 
King Bo AKA Suburban Prince is a beloved social media star and comedian with over 5 million followers on TikTok. Oklahoma raised and LA based, King Bo rose to internet fame with his high energy and hilarious sketch videos.
 

Mav Viola is an LA based comedian who has featured for Whitney Cummings (HBO, Netflix), performed on the Margaret Cho Show at the Largo in Los Angeles, featured for comedian Ian Harvie (Amazon, Netflix) and headlined all over the country. In addition to writing and performing, Mav has a long history of working with homeless youth in Los Angeles providing support and connection to services like therapy, housing, and medical care. In 2018, the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney in Virginia Beach, VA awarded Mav the Outstanding Contribution in the Fight Against Crime. Her work with the Commonwealth Attorney’s office not only secured the conviction of the criminal who assaulted her, but brought to light a gap in the case law regarding victims of sexual assault. This resulted in the Court of Appeals publishing new case law stating that, now under the law, “intimidation” and “emotional dominance” exerted by the defendant satisfies a conviction, making it (hopefully!) less intimidating for victims to come forward.

All in all, Mav is a badass, gender-bending goofball with a passion for standup, telling it like it is, social justice, and making people laugh.
