About Barry Neal: Barry’s beginnings were unusual. After graduating from Northwestern University and completing a successful run in the famous Mee-Ow show (who’s celebrity members have included Julia Louis Dreyfus, Dermot Mulroney, George Newborn, Craig Bierko, Seth Meyers, and Ana Gasteyer), his brother dared him to go onstage at an open mic to do a routine. Barry was hit that night, and knew that stand-up comedy was his next mountain to climb.
Barry learned from the best comedians in the country. Jerry Seinfeld was a regular. He watched people like Bill Maher, Ellen Degeneres, Paul Reiser, and Tim Allen just to name a few. Barry learned by not only watching these comics but by being a good listener when these comics would talk comedy.
Barry’s style is clean, high energy, and relationship material was a hit in almost every market. He quickly moved up the comedy ladder and was on cable and network tv, from MTV, NBC, Comedy Central, and VH-1. Barry’s act was noticed by a production company that loved his Counselor of Love persona, and his act is currently being shopped as a sitcom called The Counselor of Love that Barry wrote along with his partner Dan Patterson, who was creator and executive producer of Who’s Line Is It Anyway?
About Debbie Praver: Debbie Praver lives in Los Angeles but is always more at home in New York City because in Manhattan people are ready to order when they get to the front of the line. Her impatience combined with her sarcastic wit made stand up comedy her only career option. She was an invited guest performer at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival, has shared the stage with Kathy Griffin in Dennis Hensley's “Screening Party” and performs regularly at the Improv, the comedy store, and the Friars Club.
Debbie honed her writing skills with Desperate Housewives Creator Marc Cherry and Desperate Housewives Co-executive Producers Joey Murphy and John Pardee. The refinement of her stand up act happened as she studied with the fabulously talented yet brutally honest Mark Lonow .
She has been published in Los Angeles' Atomica magazine, is a fill in sidekick for Dennis Hensley on his Sirius Out Q radio show and makes appearances on paper in Dennis Hensley's “Misadventures in the 213” and Del Shore's novel “Sordid Lives .”
About Suzy Nece: Suzy Nece has done time in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Her television credits include The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Yes, Dear, Nash Bridges, National Lampoon’s Crash, and probably a Girls Gone Wild or two (it’s all a blur). Born is a small village in Virginia, Nece left the trailer and went on to frighten children and stand up audiences at the Hollywood Improv, The Friar’s Club and the Comedy Store, to name a few. Suzy is a member of EntertainmentMax clean comedy division.
