Buddy Fitzpatrick, David Kaye & Chris Porter
A native of Philadelphia, Buddy Fitzpatrick is currently a New York City club favorite sharing his comedy perspective. His act combines the skill of a great monologist with a physical style that brings his observations to life. At the age of 18, he left Philadelphia to pursue a career in the arts. He enrolled in the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City and has never looked back. He went on tour with several theater companies starring in plays ranging from Shakespeare to Neil Simon. His comedy timing was always a bright spot in any production and with a little prodding he took the next step to the comedy club stage.

David’s tongue-in-cheek observations have continued to set off boisterous laughter and applause in corporate boardrooms, college rathskellers, and smoky nightclubs throughout the country for over fifteen years. A former mechanical engineer and more recently, trained thespian, Kaye smartly lampoons life with countless comical vignettes. Acting as narrator and cast, he morphs into a one man comedy troupe using manic mannerisms, outlandish dialects, and contorted facial expressions to convey vividly funny living snapshots of his many off-the-wall characters.

Chris Porter is an American comedian and finalist on season 4 of Last Comic Standing. He has also appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, Comedy Central's Live Tour, and appeared on Live at Gotham in Summer 2006. In 2009, Porter made an appearance on Comedy Central Presents.
