BIO

JOSH ACCARDO

Voted one of New York’s Funniest Comics!

(by Comedy Central judges and a panel of bookers from Caroline’s and the William Morris Agency)

Josh Accardo is an energetic, in-your-face stand-up comic blowing up New York City's comedy scene. His cutting edge act has been featured at the city's top clubs, including Carolines on Broadway, Comix, Stand Up NY, The Hollywood Comedy Store, and countless others across the country. He has also performed with some of the nation's most popular comedy acts, including Joe Rogan, Nick DiPaolo, Artie Lange, Jim Gaffigan, and Craig Robinson.

Josh has been seen and heard everywhere from the New York Comedy Festival and MTV to local clubs and Sirius XM radio, where he co-hosted “Shrink Wrap” with Artie Lange and Jim Gaffigan. He also recently opened for Mariah Carey at the San Diego State Open Air Theater.

In addition to stand-up, Josh funnels his comedic talents into writing and producing short films, most notably “Recluse” which received its world premiere at the Rome International Film Festival. He can be heard regularly on Sirius XM’s Raw Dog Comedy Radio.

Originally from Southern California, Josh still gets emotional in cold weather.

Harry Terjanian

Harry Terjanian started his career at 18 doing stand-up in the grimy comedy clubs of New York City. His smart yet intensely funny perspective is fueled by everything from social conscience to personal embarrassments. Harry's background and varied skills have taken him down a strange but rewarding journey into show business. As a Stand-Up Comedian: In addition to playing major clubs in New York City, Harry has toured clubs, colleges, and theaters across America, playing to audiences of hundreds and thousands at high capacity venues such as New York’s Town Hall Theater, Chicago's McCormick Convention Center, Syracuse University, U-Mass, NYU, and many others, as well as opening for the likes of 30 Rock's Judah Friedlander. He has taken part in several national comedy festivals including being a runnerup in the New York Underground Comedy Festival's Emerging Comics Competition, a finalist at the New York Comedy Festival's Andy Kaufman Awards, and a finalist in the Disney sponsored Do You Think You’re Funny? Contest.

Dennis Rooney

Dennis Rooney (Twitter: @dennisrooney7) started doing stand up somewhere between January and April of 2010, it’s all a bit of a haze, like many of his “first time” experiences (ahem). The first two years of his career were spent pounding the pavement between NYC and his home, Long Island, doing countless open mics before ever stepping foot into a comedy club. This foundation of hard work has been thematic to his comedy career. He loves stand up, and it is important to him to do good work, even in the face of harsh tasks, like writing his own bio.

Since starting he has become a regular at the Governor’s comedy clubs on Long Island. He’s performed at the Asheville and Cleveland Comedy Festivals as well as independent shows throughout the country. Dennis loves the challenge and always delivers. He has been self described as a blue collar absurdist armed to the teeth with sharp jokes. Certainly not to be messed with (but definitely booked, book him already!).
