Michael Somerville tried standup comedy on a dare while a student at the University of Notre Dame. He was soon emceeing Fighting Irish pep rallies and growing 70's style sideburns to do extra work in "Rudy".

Upon graduation, he moved to New York City and took a job in advertising but, when his neck became irritated from shaving every day, he retired to pursue comedy full time. His first job was dancing in a pink bear suit at Bar Mitvahs and he was hooked. Since then Somerville has carved a unique niche in entertainment.

He is the writer/host of FLN’s “Wingman”, authors Glamour Magazine’s renowned dating column “Jake: A Man’s Opinion” and is a nationally touring standup comedian. He’s appeared on Comedy Central, NBC’s The Apprentice, VH1 (40 Greatest Pranks, Craziest Concert Moments, 100 Most Wanted Bodies), Bravo’s 100 Funniest Movies and hosted Starz’s Stand Up or Shut Up, Nick at Night’s Road Crew and Encore’s “What Guys Want”. 

Leah Bonnema is a Stand-Up Comic in New York City. Huffington Post recently named her one of their Favorite 53 Female Comedians and College Candy listed Leah as one the Ten Funniest Female Comics.

Leah has opened for comedy legends Paul Mooney, Pat Cooper and Gilbert Gottfried. She has had the honor of performing for the troops in Iraq, toured throughout the Middle East and performed for the US Marines at the famed Friar’s Club. Leah was a finalist in The New York's Funniest Competition during the NY Comedy Festival at renowned Caroline’s on Broadway and has just returned from featuring on The America Stands Up Showcase at The Magner's Glasgow Comedy Festival in Scotland.
