Kevin Hart is a Philly-born former shoe salesman who has become one of the funniest actor-comedians in America today. He has appeared in films such as The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Soul Plane, Paper Soldiers, Scary Movie 3, Along Came Polly, Scary Movie 4 and Death at a Funeral. His humor isn't for kids; this guy can curse for America. A lot of his material is drawn from his personal experiences with family, friends and loved ones, and his trademark catchphrase "All right, all right, all right" is a staple uttered by his fans across the country.

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor.
